A List of all my favorite RSS Feeds

4 min. read Published: Updated at:

RSS once was the way to gather all the news you are interested in, in one place. Like a Facebook feed, but entirely managed by yourself. Over the past decade I maintained a pretty solid list of feeds for various topics. Inspired by the Tweet of David McKay I decided to publish this list of all the interesting feeds I currently follow and regularly read.
