    • 13. Okay, great. But how do I keep track of all of this stuff?
      • RSS!
      • In Plain English…
    • 14. RSS
      • “ Really Simple Syndication”
      • What’s syndication?
        • It’s the ability to subscribe to a site’s content
        • Think of a newspaper comic strip like Dilbert, syndicated to hundreds of newspapers
    • 15. News Aggregators
      • Aggregators take the “feed” from a blog and let you see new content
      • Aggregators can be stand-alone apps OR
      • Aggregators can be web-based
    • 16. Stand-alone Aggregators
      • Net NewsWire, Sharp Reader
      • Nifty integration with your computer’s browser and can display pics and let you listen to podcasts, etc.
      • Read content offline
      • Problem: you have to have your computer with you to read your feeds!
    • 17. Web-based Aggregators
      • Read your feeds anywhere! All you need is a web browser & an Internet connection
      • Bloglines, Google Reader, Newsgator
      • Problem: you have to be online to read your feeds
    • 18. Podcasts
      • Taking it to the next step, podcasts are audio blogs
      • MP3 format
      • Can be played on your computer OR an MP3 player
      • Non-proprietary format so are easily portable
