A few more things about RSS: Week in Review, Google Reader

Last week’s New York Times “Week in Review” feed was unimpressive, but not disappointing. It included some select articles from throughout the week, plus corrections to previous articles.

901am lists some great advice to Google on how to improve their reader. From the 5 recommended features, my favorite is same story consolidation. I can absorb so much more if related items are grouped together. Go check out the list and let me know what your favorite feature would be.

In contrast to RSS faves, here is my pet peeve: summary/excerpt feeds. Whether you forgot to check the “full feed” box or are stuck on page views, I really, really hate having to click through to the Web site to finish reading. Argh.
