Moonblogsfromsyb was the feed/blogroll of The Moon from Syb
But now that The Moon is no longer active it is now the main conduit for Moon Content. Some content is automated, but most is now generated by IFTTT via Pocket tags (see below) or directly from Bandcamp, Ubend or Spotify.
You can sign of for daily email alerts from any page, but there is a also a Feedburner version of the main RSS Feed: https://feeds.feedburner.com/Moonblogsfromsyb
Plus there is the Facebook and Twitter options on the menu and you can also follow a feed or get email alerts for each category.
The categories of moonblogsfromsyb are currently made up of:
A BIT OF CULTURE
LETS’S GET POLITICAL
Marina Hyde Politics Feed from the Guardian: Brilliant commentary on the absurd goings on in the UK political world.
Mark Steel in the Independent: More Brilliant commentary on the absurd goings on in the UK political world, for which you don’t need to be some raving lefty to appreciate and find despairingly amusing. The feed http://feeds.feedburner.com/MarkSteelFeed43 now also had it’s very own blog from which you can also follow the feed by email, Facebook and Twitter
Top Tuneage via Bandcamp, Ubend or Spotify.
John Naughton in the Observer: The professor of the public understanding of technology at the Open University. He is the author of From Gutenberg to Zuckerberg: What You Really Need to Know About the Internet. And he tends not to mince his words. Below is a couple of good examples:
“the awful moment when the public sector has to upgrade its computers is approaching inexorably. Think of it as technology’s equivalent to the Scottish referendum.”
“Facebook, on the other hand, makes nothing. It just provides an online service that, for the moment, people seem to value. But in order to make money out of those users and satisfy the denizens of Wall Street, it has to become ever more intrusive and manipulative. It’s condemned, in other words, to intrusive overstretch. Which is why, in the end, it will become a footnote in the history of the internet. Just like Microsoft, in fact. Sic transit gloria”
The Observer is part of the Guardian online, and so a Feed is not a problem.
THE ECONOMY STUPID
FEEDLY AND POCKET TAGS
I may also add the odd article to the categories above via Pocket and IFTTT. It can be done on just about any device, and with these two brilliant free services you can easily share an article to multiple blogs/social media. The tags will add articles to the relevant categories in moonblogsfromsyb that will then send the article on to Facebook and Twitter.
WordPress does make it easy to follow categories (see above) or get the full feed or sign up for instant e-mails or of course just follow the original blogs/feeds
The content in brought to you by the wonders of ifttt.com
