In this week’s issue of The Maine Edge, Tekk columnist Justin Russell explains RSS and how it can help you browse the web smarter: If you’re a seasoned Web traveler, there’s a good chance you’ve developed a standard routine over time. Your daily site checks may lead you to your favorite news sites, stock quotes, […]
I’m taking a (nearly) one-month hiatus from reading any RSS feeds. I’ll come back to Google Reader on May 1st, mark all items read, and go from there!

Just over one year ago, I posted “7 things to look for on the web in 2006“. Now that 2006 is over, let’s take a look at how I did! Here’s my original post, and here’s a summary of my predictions, in order of what kind of impact I predicted them to have: 7. Hyperlocal […]

I’m back from the holiday inspired, turkey-induced blog hiatus with a quick question before I drop some longer-form posts…what is up with Flickr’s RSS feeds in Bloglines?
