Actually, it ain't over 'til Yogi Bear dies



I have this habit where I try to squeeze as many links into my reading diet as possible, by bookmarking and saving for later and favoriting and subscribing to digest newsletters and on and on. As you might have guessed, I don't get to all of them, and a lot of those links and stories stay stored in my favorites or bookmarks or emails for a long time, gathering digital dust, until I do a seasonal cleaning and trash a lot of stuff. It's a very familiar pattern, but none of this is tangible.
I sometimes wonder how much time we spend managing intangible things that we'll end up trashing.

Journalists are misusing 'hipsters' and look at that hipster URL.
URLs are full of fake traffic.
