I was reading my daily dose of LifeHacker and ran across a post talking about uber-blogger Robert Scoble and how he reads 622 feeds per day! :shock:
And here I felt good about trimming down my 200+ to 134. :lol: Perhaps I should go back to reading those “destination” feeds. (Disney vacation home, anyone? LOL)
There’s a good bit of helpful info on how to become a super-feed-reader-type-humanoid, and here’s a few of them:
- Use Google Reader and its keyboard commands to allow for faster browsing
- Use the “all items view” to see the full enchilada of news in glorious chronological order
- Do your filtering on the first pass. “Take a top level filter for topic, information density, author, and quality of post. Only articles that make the cut are looked at in more detail.” — I’m guilty here, on most days I read everything.
- Have superhuman abilities. :cool:
For more tips on how to become a Scoble-like feed ninja/junkie, LifeHacker has an article on how you can get good with Google Reader that might also have a few handy tipsters.
dear God, that is insane!
LOL, well I think he makes his living as a blogger … so I can kind of understand reading that many over the course of a day, but never all at once! :lol:
