Yep i use twitter too
I exported reader to feedly when the announcement came from google. Since then I've used RSS less and less. Twitter is now my main source of news.
Yep i use twitter too
been using feedly for a while... personally think its great!
I'm using Reeder on my mac. Works quite well in that it's simple to use and updates as often as I choose. I tend to read these feeds between doing jobs for just a couple of minutes at a time, throughout the day, so I want the interface to be as simple as possible.
DfE RSS Feeds
MS Technet Blogs RSS Feeds
MS Hotfix RSS feeds
Interesting bloggers feeds
Apple Support RSS feeds
RSS Feeds from websites that carry articles that interest me. (including the edugeek feed)
Twitter is just too noisy, and doesn't offer offline reading, and you *always* have to consume the real information via a browser, where as reader apps provide (usually) a superior reading experience to native website. It is also too immediate and of the moment. Many of the RSS feeds I subscribe to are infrequently updated. If i followed them with twitter, the chances are that I'd miss the interesting stuff. I do use twitter too.
If I wan NEWS I'll go visit a NEWS website.
I also buy books, quaint I know.
Only hours to go before Reader shuts down.
Feedly now has OMPL 'export' (on the organise page you can view your feeds in OMPL, copy-paste and there's your file). Looks like the quickest hacked together thing I have seen on the modern web. Kudos to them for "just doing it" so we're not locked in. I'm sure it will be prettier/more functional as time allows.
Now that Google Reader has finally gone Google has linked to the following page on AlternativeTo.net for those who have not chosen a replacement yet:
