I read most of my stuff via Google Reader, and long ago stopped looking at straight news feeds because, well, they didn’t really catch my eye.
But yesterday I added an RSS news feed gadget to my Windows 7 desktop, so selected feeds now scroll constantly. I’ve put some local news in there and I’m finding that the motion is causing me to occasionally notice some things.
Will this cause me to post more? Perhaps.
Will it cause me to read more local news? So far.
