Most of my web feeds are on technical issues or from friends that blog about work. That’s ok but sometimes gets really boring. I decided to make reading my feeds more fun and went on search for humorous comics feeds.
[[http://www.tapestrycomics.com/|Tapestry Comics]], a web app built on top of Ruby on Rails, is a directory of web comics with feeds from which I glady pulled out [[http://feeds.feedburner.com/tapestrydilbert|dilbert]], [[http://geekz.co.uk/lovesraymond/feed/|Every One Loves Eric Raymond]], [[http://www.sev.com.au/sevwarstoon.xml|Sev Wars]] and [[http://snap-o-mania.com/atom.xml|Snap-o-Mania]] for now. They are so many that its difficult to choose :)
I wanted of course a feed for [[http://www.phdcomics.com|PhD comics]] and [[http://www.userfriendly.org|Userfriendly]], but couldn’t find any. It’s a pitty, but I understand their bussiness decision, most of these sites earn money from advertisement and page views, a web feed would danger that (or so they seem to think).
If you have more fun stuff let me know. Thanks.
**Note:** If you don’t know what a ‘feed’ is go to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_feed|this page]] and use [[http://www.bloglines.com|Bloglines]], for example, to track your favorite feeds.
