Experience Columbia Citizens as a "feed"

Have the internet come to you! It's easy to set up a feed reader to view updates. Feeds arrive as bulleted items for easy browsing. If something piques your interest, you can check out its linked content, or you can tag it to read later. Otherwise you can wipe the reader slate clean and move on.

Columbia Citizens offers a variety of feeds. You can track one discussion or several. You can get Citizens' Wikli alerts. If you want, you can track each and every site edit. Or you can customize a feed to monitor only certain wiki-pages.

It's anonymous and free. It's easy to subscribe or unsubscribe to any feed. You can also use your reader for updates to news sites and interesting blogs.
