If you’re one of the 95% of Internet users who never quite got the idea of RSS feeds and blog subscriptions, this is a great time to start: Google Reader, my feed reader of choice, just got a major update. Along with the slickification, they’ve made a nifty little 50 second video that explains the basic concept. Feeds have absolutely revolutionized the way I use the web, and if you take the couple of minutes it takes to get started, they might do the same for you.

If you’re already hip to all this, feel free to share your favorite feeds in the comments.
