Did You Hear the News?

Keeping up with the news you are interested in can be a daunting task. Do I just follow people on Twitter? Do I subscribe to RSS feeds? BTW – What’s a “RSS feed”?? Can I get my news from podcasts?

Let’s discuss all the ways to get news and make sure we are following good sources and also not getting bogged down with stuff we don’t need.

Please join us at the next Mini’app’les meeting!
