Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Tiny Tiny RSS is an open source web-based RSS reader that you can install on a server and then access it from multiple computers/devices. Since it's self-hosted, you're in control of your data and don't have to worry that the service may be discontinued, like it happened with Google Reader (and almost happened with The Old Reader).
