Reading the News

After going without Internet news for a while now, as part of this experiment, I've learned a few things:
  • It's harder to update a blog without news stories and blog entries to get ideas going.
  • Most news is very, very unimportant. I have Julianne tell me what's going on each day, and usually there is very little of actual importance - at least among the more prominent articles.
  • I'd like some way to get a list each morning of the 30 or 40 articles that I'd be most interested in. I'm going to have to work on setting up some Yahoo Pipes filters.
  • It's very refreshing not to be reading about politics! I think I needed a break after the multi-year presidential campaign and recession brought on so many political articles.
I definitely plan to try to find ways to better focus my news and blog reading to filter out the garbage.
