News Aggregators: Not Just for Blogs

So, you're an IT Professional at Case; and you're still a little bewildered about syndicated XML feeds. "Aren't they just for blogs?" you think to yourself. "I don't care what a bunch of whiney LiveJournal users are doing."

News Aggregators aren't just for blogs. They are for information and managing information. For example:

Keeping track of people who talk about Case

Documentation changes on our internal wiki

People talking about my.case.edu

Google News on Case Western

Google News on Science and Technology

The Burton Group

CNN.com

And, of course, my blog.

Give it a whirl. Go to Bloglines and subscribe to those items. I'll apologize in advance for the fish scales that will fall out of your eyes and onto your laps after using an aggregator.
