AFTER HEARING Robert Scoble lament the whirlpool of feed reading that sucked his energy, I decided to use Google Reader as my pruning list. Scoble was on about this problem several times. So every week, I delete at least 10 feeds from my Google Reader and I won't add any of the deletions back unless I've added a new feed first. That practise keeps my reading list fresh and it ensures I don't lose energy by trying to read hundreds of feeds every day. I can comfortably manage news flow from 70 feeds daily and with Google Reader I've given myself another treat--around one of every five feeds is an image feed. That's entertaining and informative.
