By the way: I have the feeds in my Google Reader categorized so that one set of feeds flows into “Business,” another into “Tech and Internet” and another into “Marketing, Advertising and PR.” When it comes to chunking information into some number of ways, tool, allies, ideas, reasons or other such list, “Marketing, Advertising and PR” is far and away the champ.

The lesson, I suppose, is something most people have known for quite some time: There’s a general tendency for businessmen and techies to want to dig deeper into a single subject so they can understand all the minutiae from all the angles, while marketers and publicists tend to want their information quick, digestible and prioritized so they can move on to the next thing.
