Tools? I’m a tool.

Pluck doesn’t seem to like my Firefox and I have lost all my RSS feeds.

what's in your web2.0 toolboxRather than rebuilding them in an obviously wonky tool with a low CSR factor, I want to ask “what reader are you using?” But then I thought… “why stop there?”

You know you want to brag about finding the coolest tools, the funkiest
freebies and the slickest services out there… well now’s the time to
pony up and share your finds with the WORLD!!! (okay, at least with me. please.)

    What RSS Reader are you using?
    – Bloglines. It has totally changed me.
    What is your favourite Web2.0 tool or service?
    – Google Maps. My lord. How did we ever get along without step-by-step driving instructions?
    How do you blog what you blog?
    – (a) MT v.2. I know. I should upgrade, but I’m a big fat chicken. The thought of spending 6 hours troubleshooting is making my eye twitch. (b) What do I blog? Ha. Ever seen that Seinfeld episode in which Jerry and George are producing a show about nothing? That’s my blog.

    – No. And I should.
    Where do you WIKI?
    – Beg pardon?

    What tool/service are you happy to pay for?
    – I don’t have Flickr Pro, but if I did I would be happy to pay for it.* I need it.
