I'm always interested to hear how other people are keeping up with feeds. This is basically what I do now after much moving around of feeds. I've got my favorite people, people I know, people I "must read" (that's the name of the folder), and those sites that have a nice signal/noise ratio. Then another folder called "main" that is nearly everything else.
When I just need to keep up with the "must read" people, I can jump in and out. When I feel like sitting down to really consume some sites, I can dive into the "main" folder.

Jason celebrates 10 years of running a very popular, personal weblog. I began reading him somewhere in the 98/99 year and never stopped. I copied him by registering my last name + .org and starting my own weblog.
Other things I know about Jason: Our birthdays are exactly one year apart (he's younger). We have the same number of letters in our first AND last names. Those are things I know about Jason.
Is some highly available, geographically diverse, multi-billion dollar company's web site down or is it just my local ISP/Comcast/linksys router? http://downforeveryoneorjustme?com/ Excellent answer for the dudes on your local forum still using NetZero.
So cool. Training crows to perform tasks by building a device to reward them for bringing it coins. found on things magazine.

Jeff Gertsmann, who you know from such reviews as Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, returns with a new site called GIANTBOMB.COM...uhh...is that right? I guess so. Well let's hope it blows. Up.
Mat Honan didn't go to SXSW, but he's been twittering like he did.
But it is just a business. And if you ever fucking forget that at the end of the day your only purpose is to deliver to your customers what they need, you shall soon be back to tapping your trust fund. If you are not already.
The last couple of days I've been setting up my laptop while I work. As I've needed apps I've downloaded them. I think it's neat to see which ones I really need to do what I do.
It doesn't include iWork, the XCode tools, or some PHP modules, but that's most of it.
