Google Reader - Colorful List View

December 02, 2008 at 12:12 PM | categories: Web | View Comments

If you’re like me and like to read your feeds sorted by tags, you’ll find yourself jumping from blog to blog. Some Greasemonkey styles for Google Reader drop the feed name to save space, making it hard to tell articles apart.

Color is an efficient way to cue people that things are changing. Unless you’re color-blind, I guess. But since I’m not, I appreciate the Google Reader - Colorful List View script because it makes it simple to tell that there’s different feeds.

Note: updated to show correct script

Global Warming & Epistemology

Matt Maroon in Global Warming & Epistemology articulates far better than I can the reasons for believing that global warming is happening, is caused by mankind, and needs to stop as soon as possible.

Nobody can be right about everything, and the nature of climate change is that the ultimate decisions have to rest with citizens, the politicians they elect, and entrepreneurs, most of whom can’t be expected to know everything about everything, or even everything about global warming. The best they can do is take the most informed opinions around and act on them.

Well worth reading.

Many businesses have a site that doesn’t get updated very often. This is an easy way for a business to show what they have to offer on their own site.
