Daily Read Then & Now

Then

Back in January (2010), I published a list of my daily RSS feed reads

It’s interesting how a change in technology changes your behavior.  Just like I used to watch television live and now I use a  DVR to watch it later, I now get most of my early morning reading from live tweets.  Though I don’t have quite as long of a blog list to read, I feel like a get a more eclectic mix.  On nights and weekends, I go back and read more blogs than tweets.

Here was my list of RSS Feed Reads (in alphabetical order) that I used to read every morning:

  • Agile Development Blog
  • Alec Satin – People, Projects, and Process
  • CottagePM.com – Project Management for the rest of us
  • Deep Fried Brain – PMP Exam Prep
  • Geoff Crane – Solid Portfolio Management with a sharp wit
  • How to Manage a Camel – Project Management
  • Jason Calacanis – CEO of Mahalo.com and creator of This Week In StartUps
  • Jim Benson – Personal Kanban
  • Josh Nankivel – Founder of PM Student and creator of WBS Coach
  • Mike Cottmeyer – Agile Leadership and Project Management
  • Mixergy – Where the ambitious learn from experienced mentors

Now

Here are some people I follow on Twitter.  I scan for their tweets first thing, on a daily basis (listed in alphabetical order).  I follow a lot of people but this group is verbal and what they say or retweet usually helps me get my mind ready for the day.  I still read from a list of RSS feeds but they don’t post every day.  Something to note, Twitter followers really open doors to new ideas.  If they find something interesting, they retweet it.  Because I follow them, I am more apt to find the topic interesting.  It makes the blogroll on websites something more for SEO than something to help me find new content to read.

    Messages limited to 140 characters is not my idea of being informed about anything, save perhaps “there was an earthquake”.

      I’ve read probably half a dozen articles today, because people I follow recommended them and included a link. 140 characters are more than enough. In addition, when they retweet something that interests me, I go beyond my social circle and expand my horizons.
