I finally got to meet Ernie the Attorney in person at TECHSHOW. He’s as cool and smart as he seems from his blog and our conversation lasted into the wee hours of the morning.
Ernie has written the definitive how-to primer for anyone who wants to experiment with newsreaders to subscribe to RSS feeds for lawyer blogs. I enthusiastically second his approach. I also use FeedDemon as my newsreader (get well soon, Nick Bradbury!). If you are new to the idea of RSS feeds, follow Ernie’s steps. Take a week to see how it works for you, but be attentive and use the newsreader on a daily basis.
When you “get” newsreaders and RSS feeds, you’ll be blown away, trust me. If it doesn’t do anything for you, it probably means that there are better ways for you to get your information – but you’ll need to work on finding them, because the newsreader people have a real advantage these days, an advantage that will continue to grow.
