A few comments about trying RSS:
What I like about RSS and readers is that I can read text that I might normally forget about when it gets busy. Also, if I find a new great site I won't overlook it just because it is one of many already out there that won't get managed. Now, they will come to me. RSS might be valuable by sending information related to teaching or continuing education. In my personal life there are problems to be solved and information might be accessible this way. I need to investigate this further!
