Want to read this website without having to visit it?
Well, you can and you can’t…if you subscribe to the free “newsfeed” you can read all the headlines and text from every post without having to visit sciencebase.com itself. It saves you time by helping you scan the latest news without having to crawl through the whole site. Click the big orange subscribe button in the Sciencebase menus or in your browser address bar. You’ll be presented with various choices as to how to subscribe, but they’re all very straightforward. You can subscribe with your My Yahoo page, in Google Reader, Bloglines, PageFlakes, AOL, or any of dozens of other newsfeed aware programs and social bookmarking and blog aggregating sites.
Alternatively, there are several free newsreaders out there. Your fellow Sciencebase readers are currently using (in order of popularity): Newsgator Online, Snarfer, Bloglines, Firefox Live Bookmarks, Safari RSS (OS X Tiger),
It may not be immediately obvious from a quick glance at the Sciencebase site that you can now syndicate the news and blog entries from a range of categories. And, since I enabled fulltext in the feeds, you don’t even have to visit the site to read my words of wisdom!
Click the MultiRSS button or this link either to run our feed through 2rss, FeedDemon, FeedBucket etc or aggregate it in your standalone newsreader (amphetadesk, for instance). For more information about newsfeeds and newsreaders check out our RSS FAQ
You can also retrieve the general Sciencebase newsfeed by pasting your email into the following form and hitting “Sign Up!” Follow any subsequent instructions.
