I noticed iFeedPod, which seems to be an RSS Reader for the iPod. It sounds like it syncs the feed items from your computer to the iPod for "offline" reading. I really like the idea, but the implementation is Mac-only and only free as in beer (not free as in speech) as far as I can tell.
Does anybody know of a similar software which runs on Linux and is Free Software? Do I have to implement it from scratch?
Here's a bunch of smaller updates which probably don't warrant extra blog posts, but might be interesting nevertheless:
Frederico Oliveira talks about some interesting issues regarding the information overload most of us are experiencing. He unsubscribed from several RSS feeds in order to cut down the mass of information.
I'm goint to do the same thing, too. My first step was to reduce the amount of daily email, though. I have just finished unsubscribing from 16 mailing lists which I don't really read very often (this automatically reduces the amount of spam I get, too). I'm left with ca. 80 mailing lists now. I'll probably remove some more and concentrate on those which I really need and/or read regularly.
The next step is to unsubscribe from several RSS feeds, but that's not that much of an issue. I find tracking RSS feeds easier and more manageable than tracking mailinglists (not sure why). For the statistics freaks, I currently subscribe to ca. 320 feeds, but I read way more of them regularly than I do with mailing lists...
On friday I stumbled over Photo Friday (heh), a nice site which posts a photo assignment every friday. Everyone is invited to submit photos which interpret the given theme. People can then vote on the submissions and six of them are finally listed as "noteworthy".
Oh, and I'm now listed on photoblogs.org, but unfortunately I entered the RSS feed of my photoblog there instead of just the URL. I registered with the site, claimed my photoblog and all, but I cannot change that #!&%* URL there. That has to be done manually by the admin(s) and even though I requested the change days ago (on the site and via email) there's still no response. Sigh...
