|I love HN. It's my only news source. But I'm finding that more often than not, I'm not taking the time to `fully` read articles. I spend most of my time identifying interesting posts, reading the intro, skimming a bit, looking for the bold section headers, getting some quick brain stimulation and the moving on to the next article. I want to focus and read the whole article but I feel like I'm using HN as a brain stimulating dopamine hit instead.|
I find myself overwhelmed the sheer number of interesting concepts. Most of these articles are written by sheer experts in their fields. How does one spend the time to learn it all? I wish I could get a PhD in everything. Anyone else have this feeling/problem? How do you deal with it?
