RSS / Atom syndication has been around for a while, it is an excellent method for keeping up to date with your favourite news sites, blogs, tech sites etc.. However, the problem I have been facing recently is how to look at all this information without it taking up half of the day. On WebWorkerDaily.Com I recently read about a website called NewsHutch.com which is a cool syndication reader for RSS / Atom which has the excellent ‘Mark as Read’ feature which makes the entries disappear once you have pressed it. Even better you can press CTRL+/ to skip through all the entries and mark them read. It really saves a lot of time and prevents overwhelming information overload.
I recommend taking a visit to NewsHutch and giving it a go, it is one of the most useful ‘web 2.0’ implementations I have come across.
