Phillip Torrone's reading lists Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Today, two new reading lists from Phillip Torrone, editor of MAKE Magazine. I met with him at MacWorld Expo, we talked about OPML and reading lists, and as usual, Phil is an inspiration. I decided, when I got back, to finish the implementation of reading lists so we could begin the exploration right away.

Last night he sent me pointers to his two lists. I've subscribed to them on my test installation of NewsRiver, you can see them in the screen shot of the Subscriptions page, and the new items from his lists, and the two I've created, and the default non-list feeds, can bee seen in the river itself.

Phil sent me descriptions for the two lists, but we don't have a convention, yet, for including descriptions in reading lists. So I'll include them here, and list the reading lists in my list of reading lists.

1. Gadget freak Phillip Torrone of MAKE magazine's reading list of the latest gadgets, cameras, cell phones, high tech entertainment devices, music players and more.

2. How-to author Phillip Torrone of MAKE magazine's reading list of how-tos, hacks, mods and do-it-yourself project to build or just for inspiration.
