I found –actually, the beast found me — a new instance of information overload: bookmark feeds disguised as blog postings.
I try to focus my reading list by subscribing to blogs, but now some blog authors are publishing their latest del.icio.us (and others) bookmarks. Being the naif that I am, I think there’s a new posting, but really it’s just a new page they’ve bookmarked. If I want to view other people’s bookmarks, I will find them through other means than reading their blogs.
It is simply too much information for me to be reading people’s bookmarks the way I do blog postings. That is the beauty of searching/browsing. It is active on my part, rather than me passively being shown links that I may or may not be interested in.
