news and thoughts on and around the development of the iCite net

Location bar autocomplete blogroll newsreader ;-)

Since I stopped using (RSS) news readers, I browse to the sites I regularly visit by typing a couple letters in my browser's location bar, taking advantage of the browser autocomplete helper. Here's what I type to get to some of the sites I read regularly:

an: Anastasia Fuller
biz: Biz Stone
blog: Marc Canter
bloj: David Czarnecki
boi: BoingBoing
box: Boxes and Arrows
co: Many-to-Many
da: Danny Ayers
ea: Jay Fienberg (Wrong Notes)
ev: Evan Williams
doc: Doc Searls
doc: Don Park
hy: David Weinberger
ic: Jay Fienberg (the iCite net)
int: Sam Ruby
jo: Joi Ito
le: Lawrence Lessig
on: Lisa Rein
re: Rebecca Blood
ro: Ross Mayfield
ru: Russell Beattie
ze: danah boyd

I think of these 2-4 letter codes as core brand attributes of these sites!

Sorry if I left anyone out that I read a lot. Part of the excitement of using this approach is that I can't always remember everyone I want to visit / read—this often allows me, on any given day, more space with the sites I do visit / read!
