The Presentation PDF
Obscure Yakov Smirnoff "In Soviet Russia..." joke
- Signing up for Google Reader (if you don't already have an account)
- Here you can see how quick and easy it SHOULD be to sign up for a google reader account. It can, however, go terribly wrong, too - and probably will if you try to work it into a presentation.
- Netvibes Highlights
- More features than Google Reader - more of a homepage app than Google Reader, with widget support! See your email, common searches, and other things all on one page in several small widgets which you can organize and reorder however you please.
- Adding Feeds from PUBMED and the APTA
- FINDING RSS to subscribe to by unsubscribing to a feed with a similar tags if you can't find it in a search!
- Sometimes the search function in google doesn't yield the results I'm looking for - in this case it was the Journal of Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy. No dice. I DID find it when I unsubscribed from another PT related RSS feed. #iheartshortcuts
- Organize common twitter hashtag searches into columns so you can see everything you care about quickly, instead searching each individually. There are other programs like it, I use this one.
1 thing I could have emphasized more was Tags and Organization. Tags help you find things along common threads throughout the internet. Searching a hashtag like #pain on twitter will give you all kinds of results. Use them accordingly to classify and thread items you wish to save or recall for later - either with cloud based apps like Evernote or Springpad, blogs, or more traditional desktop apps like Onenote. Finding a balance between over-tagging and under-tagging is an art. You want to be descriptive without washing out the exclusivity of each tag. If you figure out a good system, let me know...
