Become a Subscriber: The 411 on RSS

Thank you, Subscribers, who read the blog regularly.

Since we thrive on reader recidivism, we want it to be easy for you to connect with us. A bright orange button (right margin) is now available for one click access to the blog's RSS feed.

If you're still typing our address in the search field of your browser, you're working way too hard. There's a solution that's easier than Bookmarks. You can have our updates come to you as soon as they hit the blogosphere. Subscribe to our blog using a Feed Reader.

Perhaps you're wondering what a Feed Reader is and why you should care. Or, you need a step by step guide to subscribing. Your help is here.

You can either keep Googling things the hard way, or take time out and listen carefully to this "geek speak" about the subject using screen shots and plain language. If that's not enough to aggregate you, he can be made to repeat himself, as he is already aggregated and believes you ought to be, too.

Then go forth and get yourself a Reader, reader.

If you are so not a morning person, but feel you must be newsworthy while semi-comatose, consider changing the default Home Page in your browser. Make your Reader show up when you turn your computer on. Every site you regularly check can be at your fingertips.

And if you have one of those little PalmBerries, there's a Reader designed just for it.

So, after a few swigs of your morning java, you'll be ready to impress your friends with your newfound technical prowess. When they stop by your desk to distract you, distract them right back, you newsjunkie. (Sweet.)

Now you're a Subscriber. Tell us what content you prefer to read.

Our unscientific mini poll (right margin) is waiting for the 411 on you. Don't worry, the thing won't destroya when you vote. And there are no swinging Chads hanging around. So if you're feeling disenfranchised, no whining about how nobody explained your Reader Rights to you. Just do as we ask and give us the facts, please.

If you're still not aggregated, please leave us a comment. We're here to help you.
