Feeling a little overwhelmed lately, I’ve been culling out old feeds from my feedreader. After half an hour or so, I went down from 600 or so subscriptions to just over one hundred. I was taken aback by the number of dead feeds I’d been hoarding. Many were a case of a RSS file being moved carelessly, but most of the nonfunctioning feeds were tied to sites that’d simply died.
It’s a bit sad, really: I’m listening to a CD I’d forgotten about, but used to binge-listen to incessantly four or five years ago. Kind of a pity that some of the writing that moved me the most at the same time is just, well, gone.
