Michael at TechCrunch talks about sites he loves/lives by, so I thought I’d respond with my thoughts on each one…

  • Bloglines – Years ago I loved Bloglines, but eventually moved to a hacked-up version of Feed on Feeds running on my own server. I don’t have all of Bloglines features, but I’m in control of it.
  • del.icio.us – I still post to del.icio.us, but thanks to Scuttle and some hacking, I mirror it all in case anything happens.
  • FeedBurner – I don’t use it for any of my feeds, but I can see how it’s useful for many people.
  • Flickr – This is definitely on my list of favorite/most used sites. I love them Flickr folks…
  • Measuremap – I don’t use it. I still use Analog.
  • Memeorandum – I don’t use it.
  • Netvibes – I don’t use it.
  • Omnidrive – I don’t use it.
  • Pandora – I don’t use it.
  • Skype – I don’t use Skype. I don’t like Skype. I do use IM though, AIM because I’m forced to, and Jabber, I mean XMPP because I want to…
  • Technorati – I use it occasionally…
  • WordPress – WordPress is at the top of the list. A well written and supported GPL’d weblogging package. Of course I run it on my own server…
  • Yahoo Maps – I use it sometimes, other times I use Google Maps. Double True!

For a lot of these sites/services, if I can be in control, and run them (or something similar) on my own server, I will. None the less, it’s an interesting list…

    Okay, now how about the sites that you can’t live without? :)

  2. All I need is rasterweb.net baby!

  3. Hi Pete. The one thing that you should really look at is Memeorandum – After using Memeorandum for a while now, I find that I’ve changed my reading habits. I used to fire-up FeedDemon every morning and go through all the blogs that I subscribe to several times over the entire day – But now I start with Memeorandum and I usually end up getting caught up with most of the stuff I am interested in by the time I get back to FeedDemon. If nothing, it’s a great place to discover new blogs :)
