What Do You Do When You've Got 'Em?

Once you've got the Web source, you've got to decide what to do with it. I generally do a quick evaluation (see Chapter 13, “The Principle of Salt Grains”), and, if it's something I think is good, I'll cover it in my newsletter or drop it in a text file of sites to review later. Sometimes I'll find a site that's so awesome I start using it a lot. When that happens I generally pick another site to either stop using or drop in priority. When I discovered Feedster I began using that more often and dropped Daypop in my priority. Sometimes I'll find a site that I'll use often with an eye on using it more in the future, like Gigablast. If you keep an eye out for new sites related to your research interest, I bet you'll find yourself in a natural groove of adding and removing sites that you use.

I don't want you to get the idea that just because a site is old it's not worth using anymore (Google's over five years old), or just because a site's new that it's the best available option. But if you keep track of what new sites are being added out there, you'll find your resource usage evolving and you'll be less likely to get in a rut of using the same old sites over and over.
