Music Education and Technology RSS Feeds: Netvibes and Pageflakes

RSS feeds are changing the web world of today.  In effect, they are making the web easier to navigate and enabling us to easily find “current” information that we are interested in. 

I have become enamoured with netvibes and pageflakes.  They are enabling me to check all of my email accounts (I have eight, I use constantly), and keep track of all the RSS feeds that are important to me in one place, using one interface.  Don’t know what RSS is? Click here to find out.

I have made two RSS sites, using netvibes and pageflakes, that may be of interest to the readers of mustech.net.  Both of these sites are compiled RSS feeds that I have found to be particularly interesting and active.  All of these sites are written by bloggers focusing on the topics of  Music, Education and Technology. 

Pageflake sites:
Go to http://pageflakes.com/mustech to find the compiled list of Music, Technology and Education feeds.

If you have a pageflakes account or register for one, make your own “pageflake” from the above links using this template: Template Link.  This will allow you to add all the a sites into your own template so that you can add to it or delete from it.
