Too Much Content

I love RSS feeds, great ways to get news, info and entertainment about just the things I want. I subscribe to maybe 10 or 15 feeds about varying topics. I had never realized, until moving to Google Reader, how many articles some sites put out in one day. Sites like the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Lifehacker, and Treehugger, for example, pump out about 30 – 50 articles a day.

Which is, simply, way too much.

If these guys focused more on increasing quality than pumping out a ton of information, they’d be so much better. Or, if I could filter my RSS feeds right in Google Reader (you can do this with Yahoo! Pipes, but Yahoo! aids the Chinese in murdering their reporters, so I avoid them), that’d be swell.
