If you missed our Humanities Computing Demo Day held on 2/27/2009, you can view one of the presentations right here about RSS feeds and Social Bookmarking sites. The presentation runs down some examples of RSS feed readers like Google Reader and ticTOCS (a way to create an opml list from RSS feeds of academic publications). It also touches upon Social Bookmarking sites like Delicious and CiteULike (academic based bookmark sharing site). We are always available for one-on-one meetings and demos if anything in this presentation interests you.
