From the piece on email newsletters I quoted yesterday, here’s David Carr:

Newsletters are clicking because readers have grown tired of the endless stream of information on the Internet, and having something finite and recognizable show up in your inbox can impose order on all that chaos. In fact, the comeback of email newsletters has been covered in Fast Company, The Atlantic and Medium, but I missed those articles because, really, who can keep up with a never-ending scroll of new developments? That’s where email newsletters, with their aggregation and summaries, come in. Some are email only, others reprise something that can be found on the web. At a time when lots of news and information is whizzing by online, email newsletters — some free, some not — help us figure out what’s worth paying attention to.

This makes complete sense. On the infinite internet, it’s impossible to stay on top of everything. So find a curator you trust — and ideally, a few of them since, again, no one person can be on top of everything — and go with that.
