Cap'n Ken's Big List of Recommended RSS Feeds

Updated 05/15/04

I'm pretty frustrated by the lack of a comprehensive directory of RSS feeds, so I decided to create a list of the RSS feeds I use and enjoy. I'll maintain this list and update it as I add more feeds.

If you have a favorite feed (or 20) that you think I should check out and/or add to this list, please post a comment with the feed location and description (I have a feed that tells me when I get comments, too).

Personal Blogs
Cap'n Ken's Homespun Wisdom - Shameless self promotion. The Wisdom is without a doubt the best blog on the 'net. |
Caffeinated Ramblings of a Coffee Achiever - The wife's blog. Also damn fine, and much more popular than the Wisdom. |
Sugar, Mr. Poon? - It's a Fletch reference. Poon's a lawyer/golf type, but is pretty damn entertaining. |
Sour Bob - Just a little insane, but always a good read. |
Robin's Ramblings - Now officially a "real-world" friend of the wife, thanks to the wonder that is blogging. |
Aubrey Sabala - An Atlanta chick, and a good writer. |
Daniella's Misaventures - A virtual friend of the wife. She used to live in New Orleans and lives in Jersey now. |
Alton Brown - The (Atlanta-based) host of Good Eats. This is in the "personal" category because it's really just Alton ranting about what pisses him off. Good Stuff. |
That Yellow Bastard - Computer geek / Buffy obsessive / Gator fan who I used to work with and now helps me lose at trivia. |
Reading in the Dark - Another Atlanta chick. Gets big points in my book by using the word "dogger" all the time. |
Dizzy Girl - A perky little right-winger living down in Savannah. |
Espresso Sarcasm - The second-best coffee-themed blog around. |
Professional Blogs
Boing Boing - An essential tool for keeping up on all things that are anything. |
Best Week Ever - Daily musings and mockery of the entertainment world from the folks behind's VH1's best show. |
Industry Standard Blog - Insight on the high tech/online industries, if you still care. |
Google Blog (unofficial) - News and views on the big G. Obviously more interesting than the official Google blog. |
Google Blog (official) - Maybe someday there will be something interesting here that doesn't read like a press release. Yes, Google demands attention. |
John Battelle's Searchblog - Everything you need to follow in the world of search. |
