You can do better than read it--pull his RSS feed 
(http://xml.coverpages.org/covernews.xml), as I do for the XML intranet 
home page that I maintain at LexisNexis.

And speaking of my XML work there, I'm often asked by co-workers 
questions of the form "do you know anything about the XyZFooBarML 
standard? It's an XML DTD/Schema for blah blah blah..." and then it 
turns out that Robin has a whole XyZFooBarML page, and I can reply to 
the e-mail a half hour later sounding convincingly like someone with a 
good overview of where it came from and where it is. One thing that  
makes these pages particularly useful is that Robin wades through the 
self-congratulatory press releases from various software companies and 
consortiums and extracts the important parts, saving us all tons of 
time. Even just scanning the dates on the entries helps gauge activity 
in a particular area. I could go on...
