A couple of links to add to the demonstration given by Thierry. As he said, the overflow of information is more manageble with so called RSS readers. There are software programs to do this, standalone programs or plugins for programs like outlook. But just like Thierry my favorite is the webpage based option; in my case iGoogle.com.
Here are some interesting links about RSS:

Next to that I’m a big fan of del.icio.us – a online bookmarking service. I can really encourage all of you to take a look at it; it has really helped me keep a eye on all the interesting articles/resources etc I have without overcrowding the bookmarks in my browser and without having to import/export bookmarks all the time. And the tags allow to quickly retrieve the link you were looking for.
You can take a look at my (open) bookmarks at http://del.icio.us/jansenmartijn (which I update ~every day)
