Improving What You Consume
People over the content
Follow people over content sources. When you come across a quality blog, podcast, or talk, notice the person behind it and follow what they do. A lot of how content works these days is through aggregators, like Reddit or Hacker News, an industry blog, or podcast or conference. The quality may vary quite a lot despite the best curation efforts. Titles and upvotes may be gamed for SEO, but a quality person is likely to be quality for life. You already know you are the average of the X people you spend time with, so curate those people. RSS feeds help here.
