Long time, no write! Newsletters have become all the rage these days and I guess for good reason – they’re curated, come in (usually) once a week and typically offer a respite from the deluge of news that comes in why typical RSS Feeds or via Twitter. Naturally I subscribed to few initially and then the list of newsletters increased – and now I am stuck with a newsletter bomb in my Inbox
Filters was nice for classification, archiving them meant they would just languish in the filtered view, not to be looked at. I thought I’d be nice to somehow have them come to my RSS feed instead of cluttering up my Inbox and with a quick search I found Kill-The-Newsletter. This handy little web app creates a random email id for you to provide in the subscription mailbox and converts the incoming mails to RSS (well, to be specific, Atom) feeds. Kill-The-Newsletter is open source, so you can even self-host the app on your own servers.
Pretty nifty and has saved my Inbox from clutter.
