Clippings on the floor

I’ve been cutting RSS feeds even more aggressively today. I think I let 6 or 8 go. I did sign up for an additional blog about cognitive science. Funny, it used to be I looked for high-volume news sites with some kind of inherent filtering. Now I’d rather read a bunch of low volume sites than one big one. They just overwhelm my feed reader. When I’m taking a 5-min break from work, I don’t want to hit MetaFilter and have to read 50 entries. If I don’t read them all, they go away (by the nature of BlogLines).

I’m getting information overload lately. Maybe I should just watch the news instead. Then I won’t get any useful information at all!
