The future of this sort of "feed" may lie in short form, digestible video bites. Which can be distributed via compact html5 video. Bloomberg's TicToc is a good example of this for financial and business news. In 5 minutes, you should be able to get caught up on all the stories of the day.
And there is certainly an opportunity to generate video summaries via machine learning ;)
Unfortunately I have no one to share anything I find.
0 peers nor friends
The Outline: real good journalism for the 21st century
The Verge: good for tech updates, but kind of click baity. I have a love/hate relationship with it.
Polygon: sister site of Verge about video games, but it doesn’t take itself too seriously, so I like it more.
Scientific American: makes scientific papers (mostly about philosophy and the mind) really accessible. They seem to try too hard to be trendy though (eg: recent articles on BTC).
Hacker News: less for actual news and more for well articulated opinions on the news. Favorite site to visit after an Apple keynote.
The one thing I want is an outlet that knows to shut up if they don't have anything interesting to say. Having a class of people attempt to do this as a daily job seems pointless in this day and age.
I've stopped following news-news (political, world, etc.) but I still follow a number of tech sites and blogs so I don't miss anything important.
The feeds are grouped by category, for instance:
- Journals (various machine learning stuff)
- Music (MetalSucks, etc.)
- Politics (mostly think tanks and political publications)
- Tech (Verge, Ars, Wired, HN, The Register...)
- Web dev (Smashing mag, Google, Mozilla...)
- Local News (Norwegian news)
Other categories include world news, privacy, NGOs, infosec, games, economics, popsci, compsci, etc.
Lots and lots of art and comic strips through RSS (inherited from Google Reader <sadface.jpg> and read through Newsblur) and instagram, a few google alerts that are more often false-positives (which is fine, my search terms can't be any more precise), some IFTT recipes pulling from HN and twitter, personal blogs from authors I like.
I follow a few sites uncategorized longread sites like:
For tech news, I follow:
- Ars Technica
- A tech multi-reddit subscribed to ~10 tech-related subreddits
I update my tech news feed every 6 months or so. I'm overdue for an update.
I also have a food feed, which follows various recipe sites and cooking blogs.
I try to read through Inoreader and reddit once per day.
Otherwise, just HN
