Dealing with Information Overload (Or Getting Ready for 10,000 Feeds).

A day is coming when Robert will have 10,000 feeds instead of the 915 he's currently reading. (He guesses the average blog reader follows 50 to 100 feeds, based on anecdotal evidence of talking with other bloggers). In fact, the number of bloggers he reads is much higher than 915 thanks to group blogs and services like Feedster, Pubsub, and Technorati.

He's not the only one struggling with information overload. He's met lots of bloggers and journalists who are struggling to keep up with the larger and larger amount of great content that's being published every day to the Web (Technorati's Dave Sifry reports that they are seeing 15,000 new blogs per day. Even if only .01% of these are "great blogs" that means a huge increase in great content every day.)

So, those who are reading lots of RSS feeds are ahead of the curve. What are they learning? How are they becoming more efficient so they can keep up? How do they keep their sanity?
