Learning, be it chemistry, physics, or biology, is not a spectator sport. A student doesn't learn sitting on the aisle in a lecture room watching a spectacular performance by a star lecturer.

The aggregator's dilemma: what do you do about blogs you subscribe to that are so prolific that it's almost impossible to keep with them? I have three such in my aggregator at the moment: Creating Passionate Users, lifehacker, and grow-a-brain. In my aggreagtor, I currently have 46 unread entries for CPU, 110 for GaB, and a whopping 1181 for lifehacker[1].

The thing is, it's like back issues of the New Yorker. When you do get around to reading them, there's always great stuff there. So I don't want to unsubscribe. Or maybe I do, so I don't know what I'm missing.

Thoughts? What would lifehacker recommend!?


[1] In fact, clicking this blog in my aggregator chokes it for about a minute.
