Seeking the Zeitgeist

I created a new tab on my Netvibes page of the feeds that help me stay on top of the latest buzz.  It represents less than 10% of the feeds I actually check, but I thought it would be useful to have these particular feeds on a single page for a quick glance now and then.    Feel free to take a look, and let me know if you have any suggestions for what I might add or remove.

  1. Thanks for sharing this Tab with us. I found it very interesting the things you look at to keep up with the Zeitgeist. I too have my own method for keeping up with things, but I did add a couple of new feeds to my list from yours. Thanks again for sharing!!

    Interesting idea, but wouldn’t it be better to aggregate this content into a single stream you can dip into, e.g. using FriendFeed? If you’re desperate to use Netvibes, send the aggregated RSS feed from Friendfeed to a Netvibes RSS widget.

    AJ: That doesn’t work because some of the high-quality streams delivering the best material only release something once/week or even less. Their material would be buried or hard to catch if all the streams were aggregated.
