News relevancy

Interesting post by Yme about Techmeme and how it decreased the number of feeds he checks out daily. It is an interesting topic which I have also thought about a lot lately. I’m also an enthousiastic user of this aggregation tool and I have noticed two changes in my behaviour. One, my number of webfeeds increased from 20 to 30 because Techmeme made me discover some interesting voices out there that were new to me. It also made me reconsider a few feeds and changed those subscription for some new ones that I perceived as more valuable. In that sense, Techmeme made my news consumption more relevant for me.
