Feed Out - Feed in

Every morning I wake up I stumble towards the coffee maker for a cup of coffee, then turn on my screen to have a look at my launchpad, a netvibes portal. Default tab is metaverse news.

After several weeks, or months of producing glitchy links 3pointD has been removed from my startpage. A great blog has died. Another blog I removed was Sad but true, it no longer produces the information I'm interested in.

At this moment there's only one blog that came to mind in replacing these two: Roy Cassini's Digado (Digital Adaption) who has a great blog with a broad interest in the metaverse with a focus on the marketing side of life.

So, two feeds out on my daily starting page, one blogfeed in. Means there's an empty spot. Which blog should fill that empty space?

Also, a number of additions have made it to my list and will appear in my blogroll (once I fixed the max count in the template) on the left (if you use IE):

NETVIBES: Mission critical tooling for bloggers

Netvibes is pioneering the personal homape market, offering an alternative to traditional web portals. Although it's still running in Beta mode, it already has millions of users from 150 different countries.

Netvibes lets individuals assemble all in one place their favorite websites, blogs, email accounts, social networks, search engines, instant messengers, photos, videos, podcasts, widgets, and everything else they enjoy on the Web.
It's rapidly becoming a mission critical tooling for bloggers as it easily lets you add feeds, feeds and more feeds in different tabs. Right now I'm running a general tab with all the usual business news, weather, calender and email, a specialised Second Life tab with all the great blogs linked on this page and a Web 2.0 tab that keeps me informed of the latest web hypecycles.
