Good Reads | A Newspaper For The Web
Coincidentally, news on the web has a huge problem: the abundant supply (which eroded the newspaper’s business model) creates an overwhelming amount of noise. The web is very good for finding out what’s happening, but it’s an endless stream of news, never ending, never relenting, with little context. The web is good at breadth, but very bad at depth. There’s specks of gold scattered throughout, occasionally nuggets, but we have to search for them ourselves or rely on others to tell us. It’s easy to get lost in the stream.
