I'm going to need a couple of days to see if this worked. I have a gadget on my destop that is feeds. I have been receiving headlines since I found the gadget. I did not realize it was an RSS feed, and I didn't know the news source until I looked into it tonight. Then I discovered I could add blog feeds to it. I watched both tutorials for the feeds that were in the 23 things blog, but I don't know if I want ANOTHER account somewhere. I'm trying to make this work, but some sites that show the RSS icon will not let me add them to my desktop gadget. I also can add my desktop feeds to my blog... not good in terms of following directions, but I like the idea of having the feeds come to me so I don't even have to sign on.
I can see a future in this for teaching. Teachers can maintain their assignments on blogs and the feeds will keep students up to date. I can also see email going the way of snail-mail. I rarely check my personal email now that I have a Facebook account. My email all seems to be junk. I won't have to log on to my favorite blogs... they will come to me.
Technology is great when it works!
