Grantland (And ESPN Page2) RSS Feed

Grantland is now up and running. Grantland is Bill Simmons’ new sports/pop culture thing with ESPN. Grantland will feature long-form articles and has an impressive roster of contributors including Malcolm Gladwell, Dave Eggers and Chuck Klosterman, Katie Baker, Molly Lambert, and others. The New York Times Magazine did a great profile of the new site last weekend. The site takes its name from the legendary early 20th century sportswriter Grantland Rice.

In some respects, Grantland is meant as an antidote to the revolution Simmons helped start. The site will more closely resemble a traditional print publication than a Web site. Its name is a homage to the legendary sportswriter Grantland Rice; its designer is a former art director for New York magazine and Esquire. Unlike news aggregators like The Huffington Post, Grantland will feature only exclusive content. Stories will run long and often include original reporting.

A lot of people have been disappointed that Grantland doesn’t have an RSS Feed. It’s a little hard to find, but it does. Here is the official RSS feed for Grantland. Try this if you’re looking for the full-article feed for Grantland.

UPDATE: Upon frequent request, here is the RSS feed to ESPN’s Page2.

Foursquare Specials In Colorado

If you don’t know what Foursquare is, go read this post, sign-up at Foursquare and start checking into places.

Recently, certain venues on Foursquare started offering free stuff (drinks, appetizers, etc.) to their mayors. For example, just last week Parallel 17 started offering a free drink to it’s mayor. So, if you are Kat O. (whose twitter stream seems to consist almost entirely of foursquare entries), the current mayor of Parrallel 17, go help yourself to a free glass of wine.

There are a bunch other places in Colorado that currently offer “incentives” to foursquare participants. For instance CeFiore offers one free organic tea to the mayor, Tee & Cakes offers a free cupcake for the mayor and Modmarket gives away a free flatbread pizza for every 10th checkin on Foursquare. And Foursquare is signing up partnerships with other venues all the time.

To help take advantage of the freebies, I wrote a script that keeps track of all the new partnerships that Foursquare signs up in the Colorado area. Below you will find a list of the most recent places you can get specials from Foursquare. This list is automatically updated as soon as foursquare announces them, so check back often. Or you can subscribe to my feed (using the button below) to recieve immediate notification of all the specials in Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins as they are announced.

    I’m looking at using a news aggregator or similar type of service to start reading blogs. Has anyone had any experience using bloglines or kinja or any other type of service? Is there any other services that are better? How do you read your favorite blogs, by simply clicking on the links of your own blog, or do you use a “feed” service?
