Alternatives to RSS Feeds using Email
Check out my Email Filtering page to learn how to make these resources more efficient.
Custom Search Engines are probably my favorite tool behind RSS Feeds. You can build a group of websites and create a search engine that will search just those sites (instead of searching the billions of pages on the Web).
Metasearch Engines are a useful tool that combines several different search engines.
Digg is a social news site where users "digg" articles they like.
Here is a list of my Favorite Websites.
To find basic information, you can use Wikipedia or Mahalo. I'm sure you have already heard of Wikipedia and seen first-hand it's awesome uses.
