A Guide for Malaysian Doctors
Suffering from Information Overload? Want to know how to gather a lot of information from websites and be able to skim over multiple websites in a jiffy?
The secret is to use RSS.
What is RSS? WIkipedia has a good overview of RSS
First of all you need an RSS reader capable of reading the feeds. There are quite a few free standalone RSS readers (client software)
One example which caters for doctors is Medreader. This is a free standalone client software which comes with quite a number of RSS feeds pre-installed, including many medical ones, categorised by sub-specialties.
I highly recommend you use Bloglines. It is very easy to use, to add/delete feeds and is compatible with the different feed formats out there. The best part of Bloglines is that it can automatically detect the site's RSS feed(s) for you. They even have an Easy Bookmarklet function which integrates with your Browser to enable you to subscribe to your favourite website's RSS feed.
The next section will assume you are using Bloglines as your RSS feed reader.
