How to become alert?

Use Google Alerts.

In fact, that question in the subject line is just so superficial.

The thing is we all want to keep abreast of stuff happening in our domains of work or interest. Isn't it? We all know that expertise doesn't build just on the day we wish to build one. We don't gain depth the day we want to dig a well.

Yes, alerts once set, this little tool offered by Google keeps sending you stuff that you are really interested in. In your inbox.

It kind of counters the distractive forces (including spam filling our inbox) that the web unleashes upon us.
