RSS Guide: Automated Web Surfing for Lawyers

Tom Mighell and I have co-written an article called “RSS Resources You Can Use: Automated Web Surfing for Lawyers” in the latest issue of the ABA Law Practice Management Section’s webzine Law Practice Today.
The article is designed to give a short introduction to RSS feeds and news readers, and then point readers to some of the most helpful resources we’ve found on these topics, with an emphasis on resources most helpful to lawyers. You will find information for both the total beginner and for advanced users. We hope you find the article helpful.
The money quote:

Indeed, if you are not finding a way to incorporate RSS technology into your online research toolkit, you are missing out on an amazingly powerful resource.

And research is just one of the ways you can make good use of RSS feeds.
Tom and I were talking today and decided to follow this article up next month with a “part 2″ that will focus on how to find good RSS feeds and other topics that we didn’t cover in the current article. If you have topics you’d like to see us cover in that article, let us know.
If you have an interest in electronic discovery, be sure to check out the article Tom and I wrote last month on best Interest resources on electronic discovery. It’s called “EDD-ucating Yourself About Electronic Discovery.” Tom and I, either individually or collectively, have been writing the column called “The Strongest Links” on Law Practice Today for several years. If you check the archive, you’ll find a large collection of articles highlighting Internet resources on a variety of subject areas. Each of the articles makes for a good starting point on the topic.
As always, be sure to visit the current edition of Law Practice Today – there are a lot of very good articles this month.
