My score?  38% (Yankee). A definitive Yankee.

IT Publications

Posted by Mike on 23rd October 2007

Out of all the publications I receive as an IT professional, Computerworld is the best.  How can I tell?  It is because rarely can I finish an issue in one sitting.  I will try to skim through it first, but usually get stuck on Don Tennant’s editorial.  Then I get caught reading an article and then dog-earring several others to read later.  This magazine is full of valuable information and insight week after week.

Use an RSS Feed Reader

Posted by Mike on 12th October 2007

One piece of technology that has made my life easier is Google Reader. It is simple to use and convenient. The main time-saving advantage to an RSS reader is that is automatically checks websites for you and displays new posts. You can then choose what to look at, saving time because you didn’t have to browse all these websites to determine what is new.

Google Reader

Above is an image of my Google Reader, so you can see how it works. The left column shows the sites I monitor and indicates new articles by bolding the link and showing the number of new posts. You can click on one of these links to display the most recent posts for that specific site, or look at the middle column for the most recently updated content.

The sign-up process is easy, as is setting up Google Reader. All you need to do is follow the instructions!
