How can I keep track of my favorite web sites?

With more and more content available online, everyone needs help staying on top of the flood of information. The two essential tools you must have in your toolbox: an RSS reader, and a social bookmarking tool.

A social bookmarking service (like delicious) replaces your browser's "Favourites" collection with a set of bookmarks that are available on any computer you use, and organized in a way that makes it easier for you to store and retrieve links. Plus you contribute -- and gain access to -- a global community of people who are sharing and building knowledge together.

An RSS reader helps you stay on top of all the great blogs, web sites and resources you discover. Instead of making the daily rounds to blog after blog, you bring their content to you using a news reader or aggregator. It even works with bookmarking: figure out the topics to track on delicious, and let other people do the work of finding web sites you should know about.
