Keeping Up With Technology

If you’re like me, you have a hard time keeping up with all the technologies out there. The reality is there’s too many new technologies (languages, methodologies,  tools, etc). One of the ways I try to keep up with everything is by using good ol’ RSS feeds in conjunction with Google Reader. Google Reader is both an online aggregator of RSS feeds, and it also has a good companion app on Google Android. The nicest part of Google Reader for me is the “All Listings” view which gives me a reverse chronological view of ALL articles (mixed together) regardless of the actual RSS feed.  This way, I get to see the newest articles first. I can then choose to hide the articles I’ve viewed, etc.

Here is a list of my RSS feeds. Admittedly, some of these are all over the spectrum. But you might find one or two interesting.
