Amazingly this sat open in a tab for 16 days - and I'm finally bookmarking it to share here. A new feature in Google Reader allows you to subscribe to blogs in other languages and have Reader translate them into your language. Not that I don't already have too many feeds - but this is a potentially awesome feature for students and teachers researching any topic of global significance.
This is sort of a pain, but I'll definitely include it in all my future RSS workshops.
This has been linked to often in the last 24 hours or so, but I want it easily accessible to my readers, too. It's the latest installment in Common Craft's excellent video series. Each video explains a technical tool in non-technical terms (with quaint but effective "paper" animation). In this case, the team explains the use of Google Reader. Cool.
Via Chris Craft. Merlin Mann at 43 folders has a suggestion for getting to "in-box zero" with your feed reader... click "Mark All as Read" more often. I got to the point with Twitter where I don't sweat missing stuff, but need to with RSS, even after cutt
(Via iJohnPederson) The lack of this feature was the main reason I haven't been starting teachers with Google Reader instead of Bloglines for RSS. I'll revisit that before my next RSS workshop now... and I'll want this bookmark when the time comes.
