RSS via Bloglines
I've been saying that RSS can be a little scary for newcomers and non-techies and will not be adopted by the masses for some time, but Bloglines' free, Web-Based News Aggregator let's you put all the blogs you read in one place, and you only have one site to visit for all you're RSS fed information. Moreover, you don't have to install any software.
Rumor has it that Bloglines will be free for a while, but may move to a fee-based model as the service becomes more refined. For those of us using the system, I"m quite sure that I'll ante up for any reasonable fee.
I agree. I read my blogs on my work computer, my home computer and my PDA. Bloglines lets me take my blogroll wherever I want.
As well - it means I don't have to add an unauthorized piece of software to a very rigid corporate computing environment.
Yahoo does the exact same thing...
