If you live in Outlook or are reticent to install an RSS aggregator such as SharpReader, you can receive an email every time your pet technology (or any other keyword) is mentioned in the blogosphere by plugging a Feedster RSS URL into a nifty little tool like PopHeadlines or Blogstreet.

To generate a Feedster RSS URL, go to http://www.feedster.com, type in your search keywords, eg "Visual Studio", and press enter.  When the search results page appears, right-click the "RSS 2.0" graphic in the row of similar graphics (these include "Echo", "OPML", etc) and then click Copy Shortcut.
