The original blog entry I found interesting only because it highlights what Nat said in the post, "...magazines are often only 10% relevant to you...". RSS can help you to get the most relevant stuff, and get it quickly.
I work as a computer programmer by day, but at night I study metaphysics, play tai chi, and otherwise do non-technical stuff. I have a love of walking and watching movies. I like to read and never seem to spend enough time doing it. I also like to do genealogy, but again I do not spend a lot of time doing that as well (or at least as much as I would like).
