And what happened to AskJoel?

I keep track of ~150 sources of information with a syndication reader. 

Unlike email I don't get spam - I choose what I receive.

Unlike the web I don't have to guess what's new - I get notified only of new (or changed if I so desire) information.

That doesn't mean the browser isn't the place I go to look up new information or follow up on articles, it merely means that for a certain subset of my daily information intake I prefer a syndication reader because it allows me to focus on the information sources I want without much overhead or wasted effort.

My suggestion is to give it a try and see what you think of it.  You won't know if it works for the way you digest information unless you try it out.
