Early last week, I decided to try using the River of News format that Scoble and Winer both rave about so much. You can enable this type of view in Google Reader by selecting All Items in the selection panel on the left, and then selecting Sort by newest the view settings.
I have to say that this view simply is the greatest way to consume RSS/ATOM feeds. While I had thought I would miss my more interesting feeds because they would be “buried” inside a bunch of other non-critical posts, that simply isn’t the case.
The “river of news” view has allowed me to make another leap in both the quantity and quality of news I consume. Today I’m able to follow many more stories, much more quickly.
Thank you Dave Winer!
