As you might have noticed on the right, there’s a “Feedshare” thing going on over there now. It’s a feature of Google Reader, a service I find myself abusing more and more as time wears on.
For those still hiding under a tech rock, most content sites (including this one!) syndicate their content using (most likely) one of two methods (or both): RSS and Atom (slightly different standards, but functionally the same). The theory behind both is the same; make a stripped down version of what you publish so that others can gather it more easily, should they choose.
Google Reader is an online RSS reader, and I’ve been using it to keep tabs on just about everything everywhere that has an feed. Through the magic of Google, I can mark the stuff I find interesting and it pops up over there on the right. Mindless miniblogging, sorta.
I hope you enjoy.
