If you like my content please do check out my new blog at ! 

Before I started my own blog I had always replied heavily on the blog posts of others in order to find solutions for day-to-day IT problems I was facing. However I always looked for that information ad hoc. About 2, 2 1/2 years ago I started following some blogs on a more regular basis – first using RSS feeds in Outlook which did the job relatively well. However once I got an Ipad I decided I wanted a dedicated app which I could use to read and store interesting posts.

There are quite a few RSS reading apps around but I quickly settled for Newsrack – a very basic but functional interface, no need for Google Reader and rather quick to navigate. I follow an afwul lot of blogs so what I do basically is that I read all posts periodically and star whatever interest me or looks interesting but is to long/complicated to read quickly. Then every week or so I pick up all the starred posts and check for relevance and then decide whether I want to keep it to do something with it later (use the info for something in my daily work, forward to friends or colleagues or write  a blog post), turn it into a task/reminder (or whatever Apple/Microsoft call it) or throw it away.

What I miss in Newsrack (or most RSS readers for that matter) is a way to easily comment on a post. Anyway I thought it would be nice to share something about the way I look at other blogs and to wrap it up I’ve attached an export of my feed list in the OPML format: Newsrack.OPML

It’s a mix of storage, virtualization, Microsoft, Powershell and Bruce Schneider.

  1. That’s funny because your RSS links don’t work on my fallback RSS reader (main is pulp on mac and ipad).
