The problem: Too much information! There are so many sites of interest on the net, and you can't possibly go around from site to site and read what's new on all of them.
The solution: A news aggregator can do that work for you, gathering all the new content from your favorite sites into one place.
Feedly is one such aggregator.
In this hands-on workshop, we'll introduce you to Feedly, set up your account and populate it with content from your favorite sites.

No further prep is necessary. Just come with a couple preferred news sites (or blogs) in mind.
