Since I have been reading these blogs with SharpReader I have noticed a difference in the way I browse the web. My favorites folder for IE has about 200 development related links. Before the blogs there were 10 or so that I visited daily and the rest got visited when I had nothing better to do.
With the blog, I find I am being directed to the less visited or newer sites more often than I would have ever gotten around to them before. And I like this. As a matter of fact, if a site doesn't have an RSS feed it is starting to get more likely that I won't be visiting that site unless I actually think of it, probably when I am bored out of my mind. I almost feel like once I've checked SharpReader I am up to date on anything that matters. Another plus is that I can count on you fine people to find things for me.
The next thing that has to happen is for more sites to publish their RSS feeds. The downside is how much info can we possibly process. At least it will all be in one spot! Speaking of information overload, was Scoble on a tear this weekend or what? I thought he had to move. God bless ya, man.
By the way, yesterday I bought a 256 MB chip for my Canon Powershot A20 for $50 US in the store at Circuit City. The price was $80, on sale for $65 with a $15 mail in rebate. Not too shabby, and now I don't have to bring my laptop on the cruise to download pictures. I am really trying to not do anything with a computer for a week (the camera doesn't count, right?). If I don't post for a while that means I couldn't take it and jumped overboard. I might sneak a .Net book in my suitcase to study for the ASP.NET C# exam.
Finally, great job on the site Scott.
No sooner did I post this I see that Chris Sells had already posted the same basic conclusion about the aggregators.
