Training and Consulting in New Tools for Effective Web Use

This site is an archive of posts that I hope you will find useful. Please visit my new site at Marshallk.com.

Sample Feed Aggregator Account Created

It's far easier for people to understand how awesome some of these new tools are when they can see them in action. With that in mind, I have set up a demonstration account at Newsgator, my favorite web based feed aggregator. Anyone can go in and use it, user name "marshalldemo" password "welcome". You can get to the login page here. I'll be keeping track of the account and making sure it is well maintained.

I've set it up to pull the feeds of 23 web pages, organized as Political Feeds (government, environmental, Middle East news, and more), Tech & Biz Feeds (including news on using blogs) and Podcast Feeds.

Basically, instead of visiting sites like the New York Times, the National Security Archives, Bush GreenWatch, Baghdad Burning, the US Forest Service, women's' E-News and 17 other sites that might be of interest to you to see if there is anything new there -- you can just open up your aggregator inbox and see all the new items in one place.

Setting up a feed reader and seeding it with feeds is the first step. Learning how to organize it, use it effectively (it's a lot of info), and integrate it with other tools like social bookmarking are further steps that can make the power of your information gathering practices multiply by orders of magnitude... if you know what I mean. I mean using all these tools together will blow your mind and dramatically change your life. So go check out that Newsgator account here: Login user name:"marshalldemo" password "welcome" Click around, see how it works, heck set up your own account and grab my feed. Enjoy!
