showing you what i’m reading
Yesterday I installed a plugin so my most recent bookmarks at del.icio.us, the social bookmarking site, show up in the left menu of my blog. That’s right, scroll a bit and you’ll spot them. (Well, unless you’re reading this in the distant future and I’ve taken them away)
That’s cool. I like being able to share those little finds that aren’t quite big enough for a whole post but that I want to show people.
Today I realised that CiteULike does RSS too, and the plugin’ll take any RSS. And since I really have been collecting research papers I want to read or have recently read at CiteULike, my feed changes often. Took me about two minutes to copy and paste the del.icio.us code and stick my CiteULike feed in there instead. So now you can also see research papers that have recently taken my fancy.
I can’t decide though whether it would be better to show you research papers I’ve just read, or research papers I really, really want to read, instead of research papers that have simply caught my eye, as it’s set to display now. What do you think?
