Organize your RSS Feeds and Optimize your Readflow

Organize your RSS Feeds and Optimize your Readflow

Marshall Kirkpatrick, a former TechCrunch editor, shares his way of organizing his feed. As his main workflow was around breaking news of Web services, he needed to read thousands of RSS feeds and with that his workflow needs to be optimized:

The single most helpful tool for me in my efforts to blog about news events first has been an RSS to IM/SMS notification tool. I use Zaptxt to subscribe to very high priority feeds. It sends me an IM and SMS whenever a high-profile company blog is updated and in a number of other circomstances. There are quite a few services that offer this functionality now and it’s invaluable. A big part of taking a prominent position in the blogosphere is writing first on a topic. That’s a large part of what got me the job at TechCrunch and it’s something that an increasing number of people are clearly trying to do.

In sectors where people are already using tools like the above, I expect further developments to emerge that differentiate writers’ handling of the huge amount of information available. New tools and new practices. It’s a very exciting time to be someone who works with information.
