I never seem to have time to post lately. I always prefer to use complete sentences and really think my nonsense through. Without careful consideration, it's hard for me to capture the true essence of my snarky, idiotic, self-obsessed nature. Though it's not like I think about that much.Online politics reserved for rich
But in order to stay in line with the Web 2.0 philosophy that posting frequency IS posting quality, here is a list of stories that anyone can read on the Internet, which have been imbued with 2.0 goodness because I read them. Or at least saw the headline. Or saw a blog that mentioned that someone had read it, or at least saw the headline, or went to a blog that read the original story, or at least saw the headline. Or however that works.

I am finally sick of Bloglines' fail rate. They just don't seem to be able to get their database problems solved.
So I'm lookin' for a swingin' new way to aggregate. So what do all the kids recommend for a guy, a super-sonic guy like me to get his RSS on?
Feature-wise, I'm fine with what Bloglines does (folders, marks new stuff, lets me save or quickly send stories, choose how stories are displayed), except for the part where it falls over and lies there, making that sound.
I read about 55 feeds on a regular basis, and get about 1500-2000 stories from those a day, though a lot of those I dump without reading (e-commerce and deal sites). The interface has to deal with that without being assy.
I like the idea of an actual local client for this. but I liked being able to read my feeds anywhere, which a web aggregator offers.
If I could do client+web, I'd be tickled pink.
My desktop machine is a Mac, running 10.4. I'm mostly using Opera as a browser right now, though I also use Firefox. I'm not opposed to Chrome, just never had a reason to use it.
Make me happy, and I might send you a pen.

The Gandharvas - First Day of Spring.
Their name literally means "The Odour Eaters" but I think they didn't quite read that far. I like this song.
