GeneralHow do you "read" the Internet? Pin
Marc Clifton10-Jul-14 4:22

For example:

If you want to peruse the news in the morning, do you just go to news.google.com (or whatever your favorite website(s) is)?

Do you just go to the Code Project home page and see what's new?

Do you just scroll through social media and forum posts until you find something amusing or interesting to actually read?

In other words, do you use any special software (not that any actually exists, methinks) to do any preprocessing so you don't have to spend all that time bouncing between websites to see if anything is of interest?

Yes, there's feed readers, but how many people actually use them or set up triggers for keywords or, say, a post by your favorite authors?

What I'm getting at is, it seems like we're still in the stone ages when it comes to using computers to filter out the crap and alert us to when something that we have said we're actually interested in occurs. Is that not the case?

So I ask you, how time consuming is your "process" of perusing information on the Internet, that you do every day as part of your routine, and how do you think that could be improved?
