Reading to keep up-to-date

Some people ask me what and how I read. Well, my trick has been to use a RSS news reader, which allow to gather newsfeeds from various sources, often freely eventhough the site has a paywall. 
  • As RSS reader, I use gReader on Android. 
  • Here is my OPML file (ask your favorite hacker to understand how to use that with the RSS reader). 
  • Here is an extract of my read list:
Lifehacking: Lifehacker, Breaking Muscle, NYT > Fitness & Nutrition, Mark Bittman
Science: NYT > Science, Scientific American - Mind & Brain, JSTOR Daily
Techno & Entrep: WSJ Digital, NYT > Technology, Technology : The Atlantic, New on MIT Technology Review, CNET News, Digital Inspiration Technology Blog, Ars Technica, TechCrunch, Wired Campus
Education: ProfHacker, NYT > Education, The Chronicle of Higher Education | Technology, Faculty
