RSS and Web Addiction

Here’s what’s really true and important about RSS: It increases the rate at which information flows by and it decreases the number of times you read a web page twice.
RSS makes the web more addictive; it helps make sure we only get new-to-us information, and that we get that information when it’s fresh….
I’m just not sure that the side effect, of accelerating the rate at which we turn into into information junkies, is necessarily a good thing.
