Reading to keep up-to-date
Some people ask me what and how I read. Well, my trick has been to use a RSS news reader, which allow to gather newsfeeds from various sources, often freely eventhough the site has a paywall.
- As RSS reader, I use gReader on Android.
- Here is my OPML file (ask your favorite hacker to understand how to use that with the RSS reader).
- Here is an extract of my read list:
Lifehacking: Lifehacker, Breaking Muscle, NYT > Fitness & Nutrition, Mark Bittman
Science: NYT > Science, Scientific American - Mind & Brain, JSTOR Daily
