The past few years have seen an incredible explosion of the creation of unique content – first through blogs, then through social networks, now through communication networks like Twitter. As content creation expanded we moved from the creation of longer, “thought-through” content pieces to short status updates and quick thoughts and “like’s”.

Sites like Techmeme (for tech news) and outside.in (for local news in the US) have done a pretty good job of aggregating different content sites. Friend feeds help us discover and filter the content generated by our friends.
