So What Kind of News Are You Looking For?

Postby IceCube » Fri Jun 15, 2007 3:15 am

In all honest, I probably should have asked this a while ago, but I'm thinking of narrowing my focus on news. While thinking about it, I realised that I'm not sure which stories I should be picking. Belie it or not, I've actually been filtering out certain types of news while I'm aggregating news because it seemed to be a bit cumbersome to aggregate everything.

Here are what I've been focusing on:
Filesharing
Gadgetry
Hardware
Portable Technology
Astronomy
Printing Technology
Open Source movement
Closed Source movement
General software
New hardware/software
**AA's
Interviews
Photo Galleries

And here's what I've been filtering out lately (with the occasional exception):
Agriculture
Entertainment
Chemistry
General Crime (cybercrime being an exception)
Animal Sciences (filter out tonnes from CTV... which I get the feeling I know why CTV has been so big on animals being born now :roll: )
Stock Markets
Religion

And here's a few that are somewhere in the middle:
Censorship
Privacy
ID Theft
Robots

I probably missed a bunch of catagories, but that should givey ou a general idea what I've been doing lately.

So... I'm now asking you if there's any changes in focus I should be thinking about. Is there any news you'd love to never see again? Is there anything I should focus on?

I know I got a couple votes for Astronomy being something great and an unofficial vote for OLED technology in particular. I also have a vote for avoiding the cell phone technology from now on.

Any other focuses I should change? Any focuses I should keep up with?

Feedback would be appreciated as I'm otherwise just considering removing a few focuses randomly.

You don't think you're being a little too picky now do you? ;)



I do think we probably need to narrow the scope a bit. Personally, my news interests are:

File-sharing
Gadgetry/Hardware
Astronomy (not to be confused with that Astrology mumbo jumbo)

Or anything funny/interesting ... and none of that depressing news you seem to get every time you switch on the TV these days.

- Filesharing

In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
