How Do People Organize Their RSS Feeds?
February 24, 2010

Seriously, I need help. This is starting to get to be a real time management problem.

I’ve got 126 individual RSS feeds on Google Reader, plus the people I follow, and it’s really, really difficult for me to get myself to use the “Mark All As Read” button because I have mild OCD that never manifests itself in helpful ways like keeping my work organized or my room nice and neat. So I’ve started splitting the feeds from the biggest folders up into “Essential” and “Nonessential” subcategories. But I’m curious: any news junkies trying to live lives off the Internet got other efficient strategies?


Home Sweet Home
November 15, 2008

For reasons that will be explained in further detail on Monday, I’m packing up all my shit at the Tumblr page and making this my home base again. Tumblr was always supposed to be sort of a temporary measure, anyway.

So … how’s everyone been?

Shameless self-promotion
September 18, 2008

So about those super-cool announcements, I alluded to earlier…

One of them is that, as of today, I’ll be joining Matt Zeitlin, friend of the blog and fellow member of the Young Bloggers Illuminati, as a contributor to Pushback. Readers of this blog know that I’m a fan, and it’s a wonderful group of people I’m going to be working with. Here’s my first post.

I’ve been really busy lately. Really, really busy. In addition to working on Epic Summer (41,000 words and counting), attending classes and doing a part time work study job, I’m going to be writing on multiple blogs soon, the least of which is this one.

That’s all I’m going to say for now. But expect a couple pretty awesome announcements soon.

In the meantime, the postage on this blog is going to drop pretty dramatically. It already has, actually. And there’s going to be a pretty big shift of priorities over here – since I’m going to be writing at a bunch of other places, this will mostly be the place where I write about the stuff that I can’t put in those locations. Music, writing, random links, things like that. But mostly it’s going to be where I aggregate my writing from all these other places.

To aid with that, I’m stealing an idea from Andrew Golis – because if you’re going to steal Internet publishing ideas, why not steal from the best, right? – and posting daily del.ici.ous links, many of which will be links to things which I’ve written elsewhere.

Do-it-yourself Woodwarding

God, I love it when news publications partially outsource their document combing. I’m going to do a little bit of digging when I have the time tomorrow – anyone else who wants to should chip in as well.

New Media
September 8, 2008

I just wrote a very long post (practically an essay) for NYU Local, trying to introduce novices to the whole New Media/Old Media journalism debate, and the ‘Local’s place in it. Check it out, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Twittering again
September 5, 2008

So I guess I’m going to start using Twitter again. I’m not sure why, or what for. But here it is, if anyone cares to follow me.

A very special NYU Local event

I’m trying a little experiment out over at NYU Local tonight and liveblogging the big Palin speech over there. Check it out.

Shameless Plug

Peter and I wrote another Cracked article. In this one, we take a big, steaming dump on the legacies of America’s greatest heroes. Yay!

All your friends are reading it. Don’t be left out of the conversation.
