One of the nice things about shifting from a corporate employee to freelance consultant-for-hire type, is completely defining my own work style and tools. For example, I just figured out how to solve the “where did I read that?” issue that often plagues me when blogging.

My Mac RSS readers of choice is [Reeder]( It has this handy little setting:
