The Washington Post has seen fit to truncate its RSS feed to only an excerpt, and that requires you to now open the story in a web browser. It’s a monetization issue; we get that. But it’s quite frustrating for those of us who have developed a reading (and saving) habit in our RSS readers. But there’s a solution: FullTextRSSFeed Dot COM! (sing “DOT COM!” it makes it more exciting). This gets your reader back with full articles and what not. You can choose your feed and run it through their tool, but we’ve provided some:

Washington Post Local Feed

DCist Full Text Feed (without the new design)

John has lived in DC since attending CUA’s Architecture school starting in 1995. He is a UI/UX/Design guru for LivingSocial and also plays in numerous bands (Juniper Lane, Rotoscope, Boboroshi & Kynz) and loves hyping people on eating local food, sustainable human settlement patterns, gardening, and good old fashioned rock and roll and electronica. He runs the dirt lab (aka mega garden) for WeLoveDC, where he eats most of the proceeds.
