Inspired by Simon Job, this is a post about how I surf the torrential tidal wave of information that is out there on the Internet, how I filter it down into a manageable stream to consume and how I save the best bits for later.
I have been using Google Reader for the last 3 years or so to read the latest updates from my favourite websites and blogs. I have just spent about the last 4 hours tidying up my list of 400+ websites which I follow after reading an article on Lifehacker about how to declutter and streamline you google reader inbox.
I’ve split this little guide into three sections:
- How I read just the best bits of the Web that I want, filtering out the noise.
- How I save the best bits to read later or for future reference.
- How I find retrieve my archived information.
I’d be fascinated to hear how you filter the Web to your liking, and whether any of this was of use to you
Simon Job has created a great little graphic to explain this process:
