Lack of Attention – vs – Attention

Tailrank’s custom memetracker support does a pretty good job of helping me filter down my reading list.

I’m also using NetNewsWires “sort by attention” feature which is pretty sweet as well.

I’m still struggling with the number of RSS feeds I have to read.

Today it dawned on me that not only could I “sort by attention” I could sort by lack of attention. There are feeds that I’m constantly just marking as read because none of the subjects grab me. They just keep posting stories that I decide not to read.

In reputation design this would be called a negative implicit certification. They’re hard to record generally but in NetNewsWire a “mark all read” would accomplish the same thing.
