I stopped using NetNewsWire a few months back and felt pretty guilty since I’d foamed significantly at the mouth regarding RSS readers a few months back.
It fell out favor during the great Jaguar/Panther migration… it was “yet another thing” I needed to ressuciate after my many and frequent upgrades and I just stopped doing it. At the time, I wondered, “Well, let’s see how much I depend on NNW… let’s see if I miss it.”
Two weeks later, I still hadn’t brought NNW to my work desktop. I’m made some adjustments within Safari… a couple sets of grouped tabs… promiscuous use of the Apple-Clicks on URLS… all the same sort of pre-NNW information management tricks I’d cooked up to sift those bits.
Today I got fed up.
After french pressing myself a cup of Peet’s Holiday Blend, I was settling into my morning routine of information consumption. I was clicking hither and yon and I realized… there’s a better way to do this.
Welcome back NNW. Sorry Brent… brain cramp. My bad.
[Update]: I completely nuked all the existing subscriptions in NNW and have started fresh. Incidentally, I do the same thing with my address book whenever I switch jobs — it’s a Darwinian selection of the relevant process.
Anyhow, as I started add new subscriptions, I quickly needed to start grouping subscriptions. Current groups are FAVES, EYEBALLIN’, BIZ, APPLE, and NEWS. I was wondering, if you do use a newsreader, what are your current group names?
