Founder of ReadWriteWeb, Richard MacManus, suggests the following for managing real-time news on the Web.

  1. Limit the number of times that you check the news sources and social networking sites
  2. Use topic trackers such as Google Alerts, PubSub, or LazyFeed to subscribe to keywords and phrases in news feeds
  3. Use news aggregators such as Topix, Techmeme, or Thelibrarynews.com to filter news from multiple sources
  4. Set up a single feed for various sources by using a folder in your RSS reader or by using filtering services such as PageRank
