Second, re-add selectively. A great article I just found was from the the technotheory blog.
Third, find your must-reads. As a generalist, I’m interested in a lot of things. Some blogs, however, are key. Know what your immediate community is doing, saying, and thinking. That’s key. Then go back and fill in the cracks when you can.
Three tips. Start small. Be selective. A little focus, and some selective hearing, can dampen out a lot of that background noise.
