Day 106: RSS Stole my life.

Even for a techy, I was pretty slow on the uptake with RSS, and to be honest didn't really even understand it till fairly recently. Though now it's mind numbingly obvious.

However discussing this briefly the other day, I realised it's actually having the reverse affect on my life as intended.

I think the idea is that, instead of trawling all your favorite sites to see if there is anything new and interesting, you simply subscribe to the feed, et voila, you have more free time than you know what to do with.

What's happened for me though is that having this centralised source for viewing information means that anytime I find a site that's interesting, I stick it's feed in to my reader. Most of the time it's great, and really useful. It's no secret that a lot of the info you see up here is sourced from my RSS feeds.

It also happens to be how I discover a lot of music too, so from a DJ perspective it's also very handy, I just don't see where it will end.

As it stands at time of writing I have 112 unread items, and that's after going through the main feeds already.

Please RSS, I want my life back you unrelenting provider of new information...!

Oh don't forget... you can always subscribe to MY feed here :P
