My picks: The best content on the web

July 19, 2007 § 5 Comments

My buddy Will recently asked me what feeds I subscribe too, so I thought I would post what I pulled together for him here in case anyone else is looking for the good stuff. I subscribe to tons more feeds, but these are the ones I find myself consistently reading. I’ve found myself helping people set up NetVibes accounts recently, and this is generally what I put together, with each header being a separate tab within the same account. I’ve linked to the sites when possible and included the feed addresses below them. If you want to subscribe to one, copy the feed address and paste it into your aggregator (“Add content” >> “Add feed” in NetVibes). I’ve included feeds from my sites because I read that stuff too.

The best source for day to day entrepreneurial activity is Chicago Beta, a blog written by Keith Schacht of Jobcoin. Keith also writes Freshwater Venture, which I have posted a bit about in the past. Keep it up Keith!
