Less news

I just dropped a lot of feeds (mainly news) from my feed reader. I can’t scroll through about 900 new entries every day and then have 60 bookmarks that I spend all my time working through. Even though there are no algorithms that want to get me addicted to never ending timelines, I have to set limits.

I have significantly reduced the number of tech news sites, as well as the number of normal news websites. I now only follow one national site, whose e-paper I subscribe to, and one site with local news. That should be enough to get all the important stuff.

And although I often prefer Lobste.rs over Hacker News, especially because the discussions there are more civilized, I also removed Lobste.rs from my reader because there seems to be no way to filter the feed entries like Hacker News.
