Catching up on some feeds

Happy Passover everyone..
You know how it is – holiday, vacation, dinners and lunches and all of a sudden your RSS reader is going nuts.. too many feeds, too many posts…
I’m at home today, keeping the work/life balance my employer encourages, and what a better time to read some posts than when you’re sitting in your living room, listening to some music.
Thought I’d give you a little roundup of some of the feeds I track. Here they are, no specific order:
Turbo Todd has couple of interesting posts:

  • The first one is about a new web 2.0 sports site,, a Digg-ish style aggregator for sport fans and junkies. When will someone create a Digg-ish site for pictures? ’cause Digg can’t get a hint…
  • There’s also one about a recent BusinessWeek cover story, “Is Google too Powerful?” I read it – highly recommended.
  • IBM developerWorks site just won the Jolt Hall of Fame award. I don’t have much interaction with the site (after all it’s for developers, and I am, well, not a developer), but the site adhere to the needs of its viewers (developers), and the award only strengthen it. Congrats !
  • Last but not least is a post about a recent web 2.0 survey that was conducted by a security firm, Clearswift, on the productivity and sanctity of corporate data. Did you know that 50% believe that they are entitled to use corporate computers to access web 2.0 content during work? Entitled. However, only (yes, only) 46% have discussed work-related issues on social media sites and services (IM, forums, communities, blogs and web-based email apps). Fellow readers – start sharing… you should be ashamed of yourselves. only 46%..

Garr from PresentationZen is one of my favorite blogger on the web. His posts are insightful, eye-opening at times. It’s not the shortest of posts, but it’s worth the time. In his recent couple of posts he talks about the maximization of choices – good or bad? Can more choices make us happy or sad? is the freedom to choice really liberates or only complicates things? Free up some time before reading, it’s not your usual feed..

Pronet Advertising is another blog I like to follow, ’cause I can always find some interesting video or picture that serves as the best proof that marketing sells. Like this post from last week, on how to illustrate your value proposition: I think the image says it all.

And of course, can’t finish this wrap-up without Guy Kawasaki’s How to Change the World blog. Current views, interesting posts and insights on the latest and hottest in the blogosphere, and that’s not an easy task. Here’s a recent post about an interview with Google CEO, Eric Schmidt.

I think that’s enough for now. Although it holiday, but I have other things to do.. like having coffee with friends in the sun outside.. and I can’t bring my laptop, it’s not social.. 😉
