The one thing that I really like about printed daily newspapers – and the reason I still buy them at weekends – is the browsability of them. You can work your way through their pages and discover things that you didn’t know you were interested in knowing. They’re a great vehicle for discovery that the web doesn’t easily match. But by stuffing my reader full of feeds written by intelligent, lively and inquisitive people, all that can flow to me and, as long as I don’t feel obligated to read it all, I can process through it more quickly than I can a newspaper.
So, no feed diet for me. Fill me up with yummy content, oh yes…
