Why I don't use Google Reader anymore - scobleizer's posterous - 6 views

  • Managing friends in Google Reader is slow, and hard to do
  • I see most news faster on Twitter than in Google Reader.
  • iPhone apps are much more robust and better for sharing, retweeting, etc. Google Reader apps (and I have five on my iPhone) don't make it easy to share and reading on them
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • It makes me feel guilty. I have 1,000 unread items. Twitter doesn't tell me that.
  • do we need "like" and "share" and "share with note?
  • Google Reader is FREAKING SLOW
  • I find that everyone I want to follow is on Twitter and brings in their stuff there.
    • David Corking
       
      I don't follow people who mostly link their own blog posts in Twitter
  •  
    Very smart idea for your apps.

EgoPage for Writers, Bloggers, Musicians, Marketers, Many Many More! - 0 views

    There are heaps of other sites all around the web where you can put your short stories, anything from DeviantART to Yahoo! Geocities, so when the magical unicorns went to create Ego, they knew exactly what they wanted. Ego was born to be a tool that specializes in creative writing of all sorts, one not distracted by social functionality. With lovely typography and beautiful designs, writers and roleplayers can focus on their writing and have results like this page, without any branding or distractions to the reader. Owning Your Content With some websites you need to agree to Terms of Service pages far too long to read, selling your soul, and your creations, to the website operators. Not so with Ego. There are no Terms of Service beyond three simple rules: No Pornography, No Illigal Material, and the unicorns may remove content they feel inappropriate. If your content is removed, this simply means that your account will be restricted from publishing through the ego website, and to host your content you'll need to use the Download Zip functionality to get the html files, and upload them to a hosting service. You will continue to have access to your content regardless of these rules, unless we're legally required to remove it, or we become aware of attempts on your part to disrupt access for other users. Interoperability When you publish through Ego, not only is the static html file available, but also a 'JSON' based computer source code file, which can be read in the vast majority of common programming languages, and manipulated with ease. This means that if you provide a link to one of your pages on another website, they can potentially do all sorts of interesting things with the data, like import it in to their own competing publishing systems, add it to a search engine, or combine it with other useful information like maps.

Does the Brain Like E-Books? - Room for Debate Blog - NYTimes.com - 3 views

  • They should be like the historical coffeehouses, taverns and pubs where one shifts flexibly between focused and collective reading — much like opening a newspaper and debating it in a more socially networked version of the current New York Times Room for Debate.

      Many websites like NewsVine seem to offer this kind of experience.
  • Still, people read more slowly on screen, by as much as 20-30 percent. Fifteen or 20 years ago, electronic reading also impaired comprehension compared to paper, but those differences have faded in recent studies.
  • Reading on screen requires slightly more effort and thus is more tiring, but the differences are small and probably matter only for difficult tasks.
  • ...18 more annotations...
  • In one study, workers switched tasks about every three minutes and took over 23 minutes on average to return to a task. Frequent task switching costs time and interferes with the concentration needed to think deeply about what you read.
  • After many years of research on how the human brain learns to read, I came to an unsettlingly simple conclusion: We humans were never born to read. We learn to do so by an extraordinarily ingenuous ability to rearrange our “original parts” — like language and vision, both of which have genetic programs that unfold in fairly orderly fashion within any nurturant environment. Reading isn’t like that.
  • And that, of course, is the problem at hand. No one really knows the ultimate effects of an immersion in a digital medium on the young developing brain. We do know a great deal, however, about the formation of what we know as the expert reading brain that most of us possess to this point in history
  • Hypertext offers loads of advantages. If while reading online you come across the name “Antaeus” and forget your Greek mythology, a hyperlink will take you directly to an online source where you are reminded that he was the Libyan giant who fought Hercules. And if you’re prone to distraction, you can follow another link to find out his lineage, and on and on. That is the duality of hyperlinks. A hyperlink brings you to information faster but is also more of a distraction.
  • floor. I once counted my books among my most prized possesions, now I wish I could somehow convert them all to digital files.
  • My book shelves are full, and books are stacked on the
  • Textbooks also require big double pages with margins for notes. Writing and reading are communication between writer and reader, the audience and genre (and thus expectations) are important, and the format and technology can be used for bad or good. One is not better than the other, they are different, and the more we know of the needs of writers and readers the better technology will become.
  • All of the commentators and responses miss a crucial question here: reading for what purpose?
  • To further complicate this, most of what I read for pleasure is about art or photography, and the kind of history that comes with cool pictures. If paper suddenly disappeared I'd be lost. Most of what I read for work has to be verified, cross referenced, fact-checked, etc. on a tight deadline. If the Internet suddenly disappeared, I'd be more than lost--I'd be paralyzed.
  • I also completely disagree that the web has killed editing. It has just changed the process to include the reader. It would be more accurate to say that it is killing the sanctity of Editors. 'Bout time, that.
  • The missing component in E-Reading seems to be the ability to critically grasp and evaluate the material. Learning is transmitted, but it is more linear than holistic. Now in my 70's, I find that reading from a monitor is a distancing experience. There is an intimacy to reading from a traditional book that is missing in the digital format.
  • Chinese reading circuits require more visual memory than alphabets.
  • I assume that technology will soon start moving in the natural direction: integrating chips into books, not vice versa.
  • important ongoing change to reading itself in today’s online environment is the cheapening of the word.
  • Hypertext offers loads of advantages.
  • When you read news, or blogs or fiction, you are reading one document in a networked maze
  • More and more, studies are showing how adept young people are at multitasking. But the extent to which they can deeply engage with the online material is a question for further research.
  • However, displays have vastly improved since then, and now with high resolution monitors reading speed is no different than reading from paper.

Official Google Reader Blog: Share anything. Anytime. Anywhere. - 0 views

  • You can share any content from any web page, even if the site doesn't have a feed.
  • For even more control over what gets shared, select some text from the page before clicking the "Note in Reader" bookmarklet and your selection will appear as the item's body.
  • Have you ever wanted to share something that you were reading, but you didn't want to go through the hassle of subscribing to a whole feed for a single interesting article? And what about sharing content from sites with no feeds? There you are, reading along, and you think to yourself, "If only everything on the web had a 'Share' button like in Google Reader!"

jQuery Visualize Plugin: Accessible Charts & Graphs from Table Elements using HTML 5 Canvas | Filament Group, Inc., Boston, MA - 0 views

  •  
    Accessible data visualization in HTML has always been tricky to achieve, particularly because elements such as images allow only the most basic features for providing textual information to non-visual users. A while back, we wrote an article describing a technique we came up with to use JavaScript to scrape data from an HTML table and generate charts using the HTML 5 Canvas element. The technique is particularly useful because the data for the visualization already exists in the page in structured tabular format, making it accessible to people who browse the web with a screen reader or other assistive technology.

Build a customizable RSS feed aggregator in PHP - 0 views

  •  
    RSS (Rich Site Summary, RDF Site Summary, or Really Simple Syndication) has been around since the mid-1990s. Over the years, several variants of the RSS format have popped up and several claims have been made about its ownership. Despite these differences, RSS never ceased to serve its usefulness in distributing Web content from one Web site to many others. The popularity of RSS gave way to the growth of a new class of Web software called the feed reader, also known as the feed aggregator. Although there are several commercially available feed aggregators, it's easy to develop your own feed aggregator, which you can integrate with your Web applications. You'll appreciate this article's fully functional PHP code snippets, demonstrating the use of PHP-based server-side functions to develop a customizable RSS feed aggregator. In addition, you'll reap instant benefits from using the fully functional RSS feed aggregator code, which you can download from this article.
