I'm experimenting with Google Reader this morning, after realizing I am way behind the web-reading times, and should really have a more efficient system than "go to sites when I think of them, and see if they've updated." On the plus side, my system avoids me reading things I'm not interested in, since if I don't think about a site, I don't go there (I don't even have bookmarks). On the negative side, I often go to sites that haven't been updated. So I went through my browser history for the past week, and anything I've been to that I like reading I added to the Google reader (except for the two things that somehow don't have a feed). I was surprised that you can add things like "Slate," although I assume what will happen is too many articles will show up and I'll just find it easier to go to the site anyway, and delete it from Google Reader. In any case, I'll let you know if I stick with Google Reader or if I decide my old system is better.
