Information routing

Jon Udell discusses a familiar topic in Information routing

Everybody processes a ton of email. And nowadays, some of us also process a ton of RSS feeds. In both cases, inbound items fall into three categories:

  1. Must be acted on immediately.
  2. Can be discarded.
  3. May be of future interest to ourselves, our colleagues, or others.

It is the last point that Jon spends the rest of the article discussing, and one which I haven't particularly thought about.

I generally think of my RSS feeds as "mine" and will blog items like this as I see my own twist on what has been said. But thinking of my whole information space this way adds a new twist.
