Info-grazing tip from Patterico

.It's called Bloglines, a nifty free service that lets you scan the latest news feeds and other postings of multiple Web sites at a glance. You plug in the URLs of the Web sites you want to scan. When you log in, Bloglines shows in bold face the number of new postings on each site since you've last checked.

Bloglines is somewhat of a misnomer, because it doesn't just work with blogs, strictly speaking. It's also customizable for how recently it scans for new posts -- 1 hour, 6 hours, 24 hours, etc. There is no software to download and it works on mobile devices. And you don't have to be a conservative/Libertarian blogger like he is to use it.

Patterico, aka Patrick Frey, a Los Angeles County deputy district attorney, posts like a madman to his blog as well as handling his day job. So I figured he must have some secret to keeping up with the Internets. I asked him, and here it is.
