RSS friend or foe of productivity?
I was given pause as I was perusing my RSS feeds. Has what was once a tool to streamline my web surfing, become a time hole in itself. You see, I used to check tons of websites every day for the latest news. As RSS became more and more ubiquitous I became a subscriber to all my favorite sites feeds. I thought this was a godsend until I realized that the process of checking, and reading my RSS feeds has become a huge time drain in itself, and has begun to cut into my productivity. Can a balance be struck? Or does the web always waste our valuable time? More to come on this topic!
