Wake up call!

I posted a while back about how people get and handle their news (News Junky). Well, I got some feedback that I didn’t expect.

A family friend emailed me in response that he watches various news channels and reads a few newspapers.

My parents don’t get any further than the AOL homepage, watch the 10 p.m. news, and read the paper (The Miami Herald) on the weekends.

My younger siblings spend their time online browsing Myspace and other social networking sites, which I guess qualifies as person-specific news.

I had to explain to a friend of mine what RSS does.

Not so much what I had expected to find out. Sometimes I pay more attention to innovation in technology when I should be paying attention to people.
