  • Jun 27 2011: My solution lies in interacting with data rather than just consuming it. I also subscribe to every feed I can, and query these selected feeds (numbering over 500 at this point) helps me get to the more correct, better quality answer. I don't worry about missing feeds/tweets/posts knowing that I will eventually get to the required info when I need it.
    • Jun 27 2011: Exactly - Any information you might have missed will likely be archived anyway, so you needn't stress about seeing it at the time.
    • Jun 27 2011: What feedreader or app are you using Alexander? I use Google Reader
      • Jun 27 2011: I like Feedly because it pulls all my GoogReader feeds, as well as my Twitter and FB accts. I subscribe using Google, then consume/search in Feedly.

        Its a great app and they *finally* released an iPad version recently which works quite well.
        • Jun 27 2011: Awesome! I use Flipboard in a similar way on iPad and Google Reader for the desktop. I don't pull all of my tweets into Reader but then again, I'm only on Twitter to catch what I can when I need to, the other content I can casually ignore.
