Jon Likes Radio, too…

Chunking and scanning RSS feeds. “I’ve been somewhat surprised to find myself preferring the Radio UserLand aggregator to the others I also use: NetNewsWire and NewsGator. Last night I realized why: it’s a matter of chunking and scanning. In RU, I scan and dismiss batches of 100 items. On a typical day, when I receive a few hundred items, that’s just a couple of clicks — modulo any additional effort to save or respond to an item. In NetNewsWire and NewsGator, it’s more of an item-by-item thing. There are consolidated views available, but they display headlines (or truncated previews) only. Processing a lot of feeds feels like more work.”
