Mainline Web 2.0

Monday 23 July 2007 - Filed under Default

I’ve discovered Google Reader. The next best thing to having an ethernet jack right between the skull and 1st vertebra. Google reader along with their little “Next >>” bookmark makes sifting through all the news (or detritus) of the day all too easy.

First you get yourself an account with Google if you don’t already have one. Then go to and add 1 or 20 subscriptions.

Then you go to the Settings tab in Google Reader and look for the “Next >>” goody. Drag it up to your links or bookmarks toolbar and you’re ready to take a simple periodic ride on the Internet bus.

This works very well. Actually, I think it may just work too well. So well in fact that I think I need a way to filter down the links in Google Reader to more important stories that I care about.

In the end, it’s all about finding some good websites for which you don’t mind reading every story they’ve got to publish.
