"RSS is dead... long live RSS?"  Actually, no.
The original title for this post was going to be “OH GOD THEY'RE SHUTTING DOWN GOOGLE READER EVERYBODY PANIC WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO NOW”. Now, compared to the multi-million strong army of Google Reader stalwarts, I may be considered a relative newbie. I've only been using Google Reader for ...

Just uploaded the first in a new series of "how to" posts to my blog. This one explains how to identify influential people in a particular location. OK HERE IS A LINK TO IT.

I have 944 RSS feeds. I think I'm an outlier.

Reminds me of the time I called Microsoft tech support (probably the one time I ever did). They asked me how many USB devices I had connected to my system. At the time, it was something like 23.

The guy paused, and then blurted out, "You're an outlier." He was used to peeps with one or two devices. Told me I was "beyond a power user."
