Resplendent RSS

 Earlier I blogged about the RSS reader I now use, Mr. Reader, and the feeds I read. Several feeds are of local events in the Boston area for children and arts related. Today, I finally went to an event I read about in one of these posts, a display of glass flowers at the Harvard Museum of Natural History. See more on that in my other blog.

However, in this blog, I’d like to focus on how wide ranging and useful RSS feeds really are. Aside from finding neat activities for my family to enjoy in the local community, there are endless interests and ideas being generated, recirculated, and refreshed by the minute in blogs and other websites with regularly refreshed content. If you have not already done so, start an RSS reader. I recently got my head of school fired up about using her iPad to read some feeds and will shortly train any faculty interested (and lured by free lunch) on the topic. I think it is one of the easier powerful ways to harness the Internet.
