I’ve been using Google Reader for while and enjoying the experience. They’ve really captured the concept of quickly scanning through the feeds only to stop and read the most interesting things. But while I am using the Reader for my daily updates from RSS feeds, I can’t use the same tool to keep tabs on some of the mailing lists I am subscribed too. I thought it would be nice to have all of my mailing list subscriptions converted into RSS feeds and fed into the Reader.
Turns out it’s already been done, sort of. The quickmail.php tool can connect to any POP3 email server and create an RSS feed for all of your email. It just needs a bit of filtering options to do what I like.
On the other hand, I’m beginning to feel swamped with all the information flow.
So maybe not.
