What RSS Feeds Do You Use?

oncehour writes "I'm looking to broaden my horizons in terms of news, industry information, and generally good-to-know stuff. I've found a lot of great blogs and websites over the years, but I'm wondering what Slashdotters read regularly? What's in your RSS feeds?" We discussed this back in 2004, but the list of quality feeds has grown quite a bit in the past four years. Try to include at least a minimal description, so we know if we'll be looking at NASA news or up-to-the-minute cowboy boot fashion trends.

Debian Package a Day (3, Interesting)

twistedcubic (577194) | more than 6 years ago | (#23883315)

Really, that works for you? Slashdot doesn't appear to display "last 24 hours", so you miss stuff that way.

It tends to display "since midnight" instead, or something -- which doesn't work in different timezones.

Anyway, front-page or rss of slashdot seems to miss stuff.

Libs show their hand (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 6 years ago | (#23884055)

So now the Democrats' plan for cheap oil is to socialize the companies?

âoeWe [the government] should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market.â - Maurice Hinchey (D-NY)

âoeGuess what this liberal (referring to herself) will be about? This liberal will be all about socializing - um, uh ⦠will be about ⦠basically ⦠taking over, and the government running all of your companies.â - Rep. Maxine Waters (D - CA)

This just goes to show that the Democrats have NO IDEA how the economy operates, therefore they should not be allowed to meddle with it - especially while it's struggling. For God's sake, they don't want to drill in ANWR or the OCS, but they want to pull a Hugo Chavez? Do they know that inflation is out of control in Venezuela (something crazy - I want to say well over 100%)? How the FUCK is that half-baked scheme going to produce 1 more drop of gasoline?

I've tried feeds. I don't read blogs, and when I've tried reading Slashdot or news sites I end up having to click somewhere to read the full article. This seems to be the case for any feed reader I've tried, whether it be on my phone or my laptop pc.

Re:I don't get it (4, Informative)

MMMDI (815272) | more than 6 years ago | (#23883587)

Let's say your favorite sites are Slashdot, Site1, Site2, and Site3. You check these sites a couple of times daily for new content, which consists of you manually visiting,,, and every time the mood strikes you and then scanning said sites for updates.

With an RSS reader, you simply go to your feed reader of choice (or open your preferred program, or however you get your content - there's hundreds of options) and scan down the list - "Oh, Slashdot updated with three new stories, that one looks interesting, [click]."

Now, say that you want to stay up to date with dozens or even hundreds of sites, and you'll see the benefit of feeds.

Re:I don't get it (1)

TheRaven64 (641858) | more than 6 years ago | (#23883817)

I subscribe to the BBC News, The Register, Ars Technica, OS News and a couple of other feeds. I get a list of headlines, and a short (one paragraph) summary. 90% of the time the headline gives me enough information - just a quick indication that something of note has happened. When I want to read it in more detail, I click on the headline.

Think of it as skim-reading a custom newspaper. Scanning the headlines gives you a rough view of what's going on in the world, and reading the articles gives you more detail if you want it.

WHICH feeds (2, Insightful)

DNS-and-BIND (461968) | more than 6 years ago | (#23883497)

Which feeds, not what feeds. Sorry, living abroad as I do, it's embarrassing to see native speakers with a lower level of written English than ESL students. Anyway, here's my list:

    China Law Blog, all sorts of interesting stuff about China and IPR. The law is actually pretty good in China, the problem is people don't know how to use it.
    Danwei, who are a bunch of pompous self-important Beijing residents, but have some good articles and translations that aren't available anywhere else.
    An English magazine that occasionally has something interesting on it.
    EastSouthWestNorth, a weblog with all sorts of interesting stories about dissent in China, and it's not even blocked by the GFW. Unfortunately the website editor is a radical leftist and this colors his coverage of some events. The web page is ugly as sin and includes a bunch of irrelevant crap about Taiwanese actresses and such, so RSS is the best bet.

RSS feeds for the photographer geek:

Joe McNally []
National Geographic shooter, photojournalist extraordinaire. Less about the mechanics than Strobist.

Flash Flavor []
Insights from a very popular wedding shooter.

The Big Picture []
A blog attempting to fill the shoes of LIFE.

Library of Congress []
The Library of Congress has been putting their archives on Flickr. Some are slightly dull, but it's an interesting exposure to first half of the 20th century.

These all link to the main site, where you should hopefully be able to find the RSS feed.

- [] - Most of the time the right amout of ITism, but few opinions and trivia
- [] - A lot of reviews on different produkts
- [] - Could be more ITish at times, but good general articles make up for that

3.) Handy Stuff (in German mobile = handy, so this is a wordplay)
- [] - Not so good on the hardware part, but great for knowing releases and new contracts in Germany
- [] - Again good comments and opinions
- [] - Very good for hardware and some trivia
- [] - Was looking forward to that device is it looks dead to me...
- [] - Kind of redundant with Engadget mobile, might get the axe, but still a good feed.

4.) Hardware
- [] - Good MP3-Player feed, updated seldomely, but is still good
- [] - A RSS feed of a watercooling company
- [] - Good reviews on new models, updated infrequently
- [] - Notebook news, updated infrequently
- [] - Notebook reviews, very good, updated infrequently
- [] - Great page for getting first looks on the new or upcoming top notebooks
- [] - Also on MP3 player, updated very seldomely
- [] - Good on general hardware (graphics cards and stuff)

5.) Science
- [] - Good articles but sometimes too much on legislation and stuff
- [] - Also great with some good long interesting articles
- [] - A very good quick view on what has been discovered or researched

6.) Stuff
- [] - Better than Gizmodo IMO, because there is less trash there
- [] - Nokia Update feed because the idiots have disabled Vista support and I want to know when its back...
- [] - Similar to Engadet and Gizmodo, yet different. just look at it yourself
- [] - Page that tells me when a new offline Wikipedia is available for mobile use

A lot of feeds but I am a skilled reader by now and know what to skip :)

This is the first time in a while I've come away from reading /. with more than a whole lot of thoughts to process. Right click, "add feed to akgregator"!
And of course the KDE feeds that come preset with Akgregator.

empaler (130732) | more than 6 years ago | (#23883949)

I love David Allen's GTD, and I've a few productivity RSS feeds that I follow;
David Allen Co.'s official RSS feed [] has a lot of interesting GTD-centric tips.
43Folders [] is Merlin Mann's productivity feed with a little more unrelated noise.
Lifehacker [] has a lot of productivity tips, but again, more noise. On the other hand, Lifehacker is also a lot more down to earth.
Get Rich Slowly [] isn't directly productivity--related, but it's a good reminder to mind your finances.

(I've linked to the sites and not the feeds so that new readers can get a glimpse of the content before choosing whether or not to grab the RSS feed)

I have quite a few, there's comics, blogs and news. Google for the links if you want them, I had them in but it was poor readability. They'd all be the top hit anyway.

    Mostly a political blog by a British student, although he's now unemployed. Funny, yet insightful
    Blog about the development of and all the technical details from behind the scenes. Very interesting stuff, especially considering the large amount of data they have to work with.

    Blog from Martin Lewis, the money saving expert. Another UK-centric blog.
    Excellent web development blog.

    Articles about North Korea. Its somewhere I'm interested in, as its hard to imagine the suffering of those who live there.
    Blog that generally rants about petrol and diesel prices in the UK.
    Blog from a police officer in the UK. Makes you realise how much PC crap they have to deal with just for the collection of statistics.

    Blog looking at how crazy our drug laws are, and attempts at reforming them.
    Blog from the Yahoo! UI guys. Useful information on new developments to the framework.
Wow, that took a while. That doesn't include all the personal blogs from friends either. But, I don't read all of these all the time. Just when I have time.

Google News - to keep me in touch with the world
Lifehacker - for the tips and other useful info
Gizmodo - for the gadget stuff (and sheer craziness)
Digg [] - for the various interesting stuff

Human Slavery (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 6 years ago | (#23884091)

The Trafficking Blog [] only updates occasionally, but is worth throwing into the mix.

(It's good to find a few niche items on areas that it's important to know about, even if they're not always emotionally fluffy to read.)

I have taken the liberty of aggregating the syndication feeds of myself and my friends here. Check it out. []

This is using [] which is an interesting syndicated content aggregater.

That reminds me. I would be interested in /.'s opinions on the [] project. Do you think that it will catch on? I ask because I am considering [] adding a support for this to the search engine part of my content publishing project [] .

HowFlow - Digg, for us IT guys (1)

slashflood (697891) | more than 6 years ago | (#23884203)

I've created a social bookmarking site for Open Source tipps, tricks and howtos [] . I'm thinking about adding a news section, since the former tech news site became a picture sharing site. :)
HowFlow is about seven weeks old, but I'm getting great feedback from its users. It has some very unique features, like an intelligent pastebin [] that tries to find a solution for pasted error messages and so on.
You can subscribe to several feeds: upcoming or published tricks and so called 'tag feeds'. The site is non-commercial, there is only one little open-source related ad on it.
