I just read “A new journalism on the horizon” the on BBC News. I’ve certainly changed my news consumption habits — I rarely check news sites like CNN anymore. Instead, I rely on Twitter and Facebook to surface any story that’s worth reading. The only regular & consistent form of news I consume is Fortunate and Time — which I pay for on my Kindle (love my Kindle by the way).

Just thinking out loud, but here is another additional service I’d be willing to pay for:

The ability to pick a story (for example the BP Oil Spill) and receive high quality updates on that particular story via my Kindle. I read most of Time, but not all stories are interesting to me. However, there are some topics that I absolutely want to continue to consume if there was a way to not spend a bunch of time tracking down WHAT I should read relating to them. I’d like to be able to “favorite” a story, and automatically receive related content as it becomes available. I spend a lot of time online, but certainly willing to spend some dollars for someone to filter what I should/shouldn’t read – there’s value in not having to do that myself.

I think this post I wrote back in 2007 is still relevant, and I’m surprised no one has really solved this problem yet. If there is a solution available that I’m not aware of, by all means, let me know!

On a related note – if anyone knows of a blog that covers world events that publishes an article about once a day after sifting through all the news stories and only covers extremely important issues, let me know. I’m tired of wading through article after article on CNN that seems like content just for the sake of generating more page views!
