Set The People Free...

Many of you know that I am an obsessive reader and, if you are a good friend, you have had the questionable benefit of a steady barrage of emails about business, international politics, robots, the towering achievements of Greek and Cypriot sports and a lot more burdening your inbox. Today is your day of liberation. My comments, article links, etc will be posted here instead. It seems like the best of all worlds - I can blather away to my heart's content and you can be here if you want to or not.

If you are particularly inspired, please subscribe and post a comment. Feel free to pass the link on to anyone, but at the end of the day, I think we are talking about a pretty, umm, exclusive audience around here...

If you do even a modest amount of reading online, I recommend you look at as an excellent way to organize your reading.

Netvibes is an aggregator of RSS feeds. Almost every major publication now publishes RSS feeds and Netvibes gives you a very easy way to organize and read any RSS feed in the world, including the ones they preloaded and feeds that you find on your own.

I now can scan several dozen feeds daily, from major publications to obscure blogs, and it takes me no more than 10% to 20% of the time that it took me before. There are other tools (Google Reader, client applications) that do the same thing but I like Netvibes because it is not client-based (so I can see my news from any browser) and I found it before I found Google Reader, so I got stuck.

The RSS feed for this blog is: and it can be found at the bottom of this page
