I've gotten back into #RSS lately in an attempt to gain some control over the content I consume.
Each day, I'll scroll past dozens of headlines on Reddit/HN but rarely spot anything worthwhile. My feed reader yields maybe 5-10 articles a week, but I read all of them.
The trick is curation -- only subscribing to high-quality feeds that I actually read.
