from the urls-we-dig-up dept

With the ever growing amount of content to read/watch/hear, humans are going to need to figure out much more efficient ways to consume information.

Here are just a few early attempts to get computers to help us out with information overload. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.
