Are Single Topic Editors the Answer to Information Overload?

Nick Bradbury has a short but interesting post on how to deal with the glut of information that is burying us all, especially users of RSS feed readers. For a B2B media company, it is especially interesting:

“In my case, part of my “feed weeding” involves getting rid of a bunch of single-topic feeds, then subscribing to one feed that points out the interesting articles in those feeds… In fact, I could easily get rid of 90% of my feeds if I could find better editors on topics other than technology. Syndication lends itself to the rise of sites that point out the interesting stuff to us, so I’ll wager we’ll see more editors and fewer over-subscribed feed readers over the next few years.”
