Too much RSS

leave a comment »

After a busy semester, I finally have time to deal with lots of things that I should deal with months ago, including 1000+ (maybe 2000+) unread RSS in my google reader. This is time consuming, especially when English is not my native language.

CNN, The New York Times, Reuters, FT, Economists , and other news agents are on my list. I’m not really interested in all of them. But I try to know more about the U.S. and the world through these main stream media agents. It seems you should know what’s happening in the place you live in. I think is also many people’s reason for reading news.

But after two days’ tedious reading, I find that I can never read all of the RSS as the new news begin to pile up. No wonder they describe the way of RSS spreading information as ‘push’. So I decide to mark all of them as read, just pay attention to the coming news. As Confucius said,”Don’t chase the past, work on the future.”
