Putting Email on a leash, part 2
After being out sick yesterday, I took about fifteen minutes to fire The New York Times, The Washington Post, CBS News and CNET this morning. That's right, I kicked the lot out of my Inbox, cruelly unsubscribing to each and every one of them. The bottom line is they've overstayed their welcome - it would be one thing they delivered actual news, but no, they are all about selling their media brand.
Since I still feel a twinge of civic responsibility to keep at least a toe in the river of current events, I've added several New York Times and CBS News feeds to my RSS Reader of choice, FeedDemon. We'll see if they behave themselves and not waste my time or if they get voted off that island as well.
