Founder of ReadWriteWeb, Richard MacManus, suggests the following for managing real-time news on the Web.
- Limit the number of times that you check the news sources and social networking sites
- Use topic trackers such as Google Alerts, PubSub, or LazyFeed to subscribe to keywords and phrases in news feeds
- Use news aggregators such as Topix, Techmeme, or Thelibrarynews.com to filter news from multiple sources
- Set up a single feed for various sources by using a folder in your RSS reader or by using filtering services such as PageRank
