Overwhelmed by RSS

Christoph from engadgeted.net has written a post about being overwhelmed by his feed reader. I can absolutely relate to what he writes because I often feel exactly the same. Whenever I do my aggregator runs, I don’t manage to read more than 40 % of the new messages. This results in an accumulation of hundreds of posts which I feel I should at least skim through after a few days, but most of the time just open up in order to set back the feeds (Bloglines…why not implement something like “mark as read”?) Now, with all the problems in the world, this one is only a marginal one for a marginal percentage of the population. But still…it is a problem. Comment to discuss (I know, only A-list bloggers have big enough an audience to trigger discussions in their comments, but what’s wrong with trying?).
