ASL Video – 3:19 Minutes Long

Grant discussed about RSS Reader program – he wondered if anybody still uses it today. He still use faithfully with Bloglines.com – it serve him very well. Last time many DeafRead fans discussed in 2006, there’s small numbers of people actually use RSS Reader faithfully while everyone else trying to understand what it is all about.

Many 3rd party services such as youtube.com, flickr.com and even Netflix.com have its own feeds. Also, Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0 and Firefox 2.0 have its own RSS Reader or can plug into 3rd party such as Bloglines.

It’s been more than one year later, DeafRead.com grew bigger along DeafVideo.TV and others. Do you guys still use it regularly? Did you change for better program? Did you actually give it up? Give us your feedback.
