Geeks With Blogs

Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

I originally started reading blogs to become more knowledgeable about technology.  I've learned a lot, but somewhere along the line I picked up way too many subscriptions.  Anytime somebody talked about something cool, I subscribed to them.  Anytime somebody linked to Where's Tim, I subscribed to them.  I find that my daily grind though FeedDemon brings me a lot of repeated posts and things that don't really interest me.  I skim through all the feeds and rarely pick up anything that is worth the read (mostly because I'm just skimming, not because of the lack of content). 

The final straw was reading Scoble complaining about people not linking to his video.  I then proceeded to read that the video was *kinda* paid for by Intel.  After slapping myself in the face for wasting 5 minutes of my time on a blogger that used to be really interesting, I decided it was time for a change.

So, from this point forward, I am unsubscribing from all my feeds except for GeeksWithBlogs and a few others (like Kyle, Joe Stagner, Dave Donaldson,  CodeBetterDave Starr, Mickey Gousset and Chrisoph Wille).  If anybody that I still read links to some great content, I'll probably subscribe to them.

On a completely unrelated note, I'm working on a little task tray application that ties into the Where's Tim webservice and pops up a balloon tip when I'm moving.  It's ClickOnce and can be downloaded here.
