RSS Feeds

RSS feeds are great, they’re an invention of Walt Feigenson’s (just kidding). But, I first heard about them from Walt. I started using them, in conjunction with Google Reader / Gmail. I setup job search agents at various ‘job boards’, company websites, create an RSS feed (not all sites allow you to do this, orange icon) and then feed these feeds into Google Reader. The value is that I don’t have to go to each job site, or look amongst all the competing emails. Lately, I’ve created RSS feeds for Wall Street Journal news alerts and various blog searches (using different key words) and added them as a ‘subscription’ into Google Reader.
