Feed share beyond the blogroll

I realized yesterday that I haven’t updated my blogroll in ages. The whole concept of blogrolls is slowly being erased from my brain because I rarely think about them — largely because blogrolls live on blogs and I rarely visit blogs anymore. Instead I do most of my blog browsing in my RSS reader. Out of sight, out of mind, goodbye blogrolls.

But the blogroll of a well-liked blogger or a trusted information source (regardless of how well-liked) can be an extremely useful filter for finding more good content.

If you’re curious about what feeds are in my feed reader, you should check out my list of feeds at my OPML shared feeds page. This is just a webpage with a list of URLed blog titles and their associated feeds. (This actually reminds me that I was in attendance at the Hillside Club in Berkeley when Dave Winer unveiled OPML to the CyberSalon crowd. This is of absolutely no import, just a memory.)

Here are a few ways to track my informational activities online:

Rss_icon The Personal Genome Feed
…for blog posts I write and choose to share

Rss_icon_2My shared items from Google Reader
…for online feeds I read and choose to share

Rss_icon_3My genomics del.icio.us feed
…for online information I read and choose to share

Rss_icon_3My connotea feed (I now use CiteULike, see below)
…for published papers I read and choose to share

    You write blog posts that you choose not to share?! How weird is that? ;)

    >90% of my blog posts never see the light of day! I use my blog as a professional diary, much of which is either too raw for primetime or of little interest to the world. Either way, I often want to record these thoughts for my personal future reference anyway. Works for me!

    Maybe it’s just me but I am certain I would find everything you write interesting.

    OoOOooh. I sound like stalker.
