You’ll notice a short section at the bottom right entitled “What I’m Reading”. This is a rather neat feature that combines with Google Reader which allows me to mark a page I’ve read in a blog as shared, and then have it show up in my shared items list – which I can then show on my home page as a fleeting glimpse at the best of what I’ve read of late.
And if you don’t know what RSS is, it’s essentially a protocol that lets you aggregate lots of blogs – like this one – into a single place to read them all and get notified when they’re updated. There’s a great explanation here. Basically it’s the best thing to hit the Internet since.. well, since HTML. Google Reader is as good an aggregator as any, and helps me keep up to date.
