Four websites 90% of social media geeks and techies will follow almost religiously: Techcrunch, Read/Write Web, Engadget and Gizmodo. Four websites that between them realistically publish at least 200 posts a day. Good posts. Not great posts, but good posts.
Even if they were the only four websites I followed on a daily basis I wouldn't have enough time. So, apart from Read/Write Web, they've all been removed from my RSS reader.
1. This illuminates the case for aggregator-type publishers. No, I'm not referring to Amatomu and Afrigator, but to bloggers like Cherryflava and Micropersuasion. These guys trawl the Web and their feeds for the very best, thought-provoking content, add a thought or two of their own and publish. I'd rather read them than any of the other four.
2. There exists the problem of too much content. I guess it's the same reason I choose one news resource over another - following the stream of news on some local news sites is impossible. Hence why I love The Times' feature on their front page that shows which articles out of the current stream of content are getting the most views.
There's no shortage of content out there - but it's certainly quality as opposed to quantity that has my attention.
