These blog memes are great, and I’m glad my blog is not too formal to miss out. I like that our distributed blog communities can get to know each other a little more as friends do.
Web of course
Not just because I’m sitting at the computer, but the web is my type of media, for me I don’t pay, I have more media, types, breadth, than any other delivery channel. That’s the thing, the web is a media type, but it also delivers all the other media types, online newspaper, online TV, photo’s, video’s, music, etc…
OK so it’s obvious I’m very fond of the blogosphere.
Local News - PerthNorg
General News - If I did, I’d probably check out Daylife.
Twitter is fun, I use IM.
I subscribe to 3 or 4 forums and groups.
I hardly visit sites, it’s all RSS, I may visit a site after I’ve seen it in my RSS Reader.
What type of feeds - all blogs, a few websites, a few search feeds, a few journals.
Subscribe to under 300 feeds, this is way too many, about 20 I don’t read or I’m testing, and about 50 or so are blogs from services I use…so I guess I regularly read about 200 feeds.
News, Current Affairs, documentaries, animation, and some trash like reality shows…oh yeah and a few series like Desparate Housewives, OC, Extra’s…
Watch about one every week or 2, plus we are building a cool collection: The Office series, Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Donnie Darko, American Beauty, David Lynch stuff, and older movies.
Last film I saw was last night, Little Miss Sunshine…really funny character road movie.
Don’t get there that often, and it’s expensive…last movie I saw was Notes on a Scandal.
I guess I’m not too web savvy with my TV/DVD/Cinema intake, but I do like the idea of programming your own stuff, Tivo or something like that.
Hmm, I don’t listen to podcasts, just haven’t got round to it, maybe I’ll see my dietitian.
Google, Technorati, del.icio.us
Basically just when in the car, RTR is a great community station in Perth.
I still buy CD’s, some times I get stuff online, last.fm is seriously good, but I haven’t the room in my diet, I wish I did.
At the moment I’m listening to mostly lo-fi electronica: Boards of Canada, Donna Regina, Savath and Savalas…
Sometimes on the weekend
Not really…When I go to the news agents I try to find something I like, but my interests just aren’t on paper…I’ve bought the Economist from time to time…maybe I would buy Wired, not sure.
I can’t get enough of reading, mostly lots of reading on natural medicine, shamanism, ethnobotany, anthropology
- Google Reader
- Google Toolbar
- Rasasa (RSS to IM)
- email on my phone
- Gmail webclips
- Gmail (FeedBlitz for one ot two feeds).
- music on PC
- music on mobile phone
- Radio in car
- Search engine
NOTE: Via Rmail I get RSS feeds sent to my phone email (my phone provider allows me to receive unlimited emails for free), these are usually the wordy blogs that I have more time to read on my phone when I’m on the train. I also noticed the other day that when I was listening to my voicemails, it also said that I have new emails do I want to listen to them…nifty!
I don’t really follow any verticals like Topic based remixed feed sites or social bookmark groups.
[ADDED 27/02/07: My 1Gig mp3 player (Creative Zen V Plus) plays video, so I have been watching clips on the train.]
