My mother keeps sending me magazine articles that she thinks I will enjoy reading. She knows me better than this site and still she gets it wrong.

When I saw the title, the first thing I thought was "... Reader's Digest"?

Even though this is sort of RSS aggregation for dummies, I still found stuff I wanted to read that I wasn't aware of, so I'll probably end up checking it out occasionally.

This looks like a good service. I'll be checking it out.

I'll give it a shot. I'm afraid, though, that it'll be better at recommending articles about subjects I like (What's that you say? I enjoy articles about jazz, so I should read more articles about jazz, such as the ones that appear in jazz magazines? Wow, thank you, Maggwire!) than it will be at recommending articles that are well-written or interesting or whatnot. I like beer, too, but I don't want to read a million lad-mag top-ten-fake-dive-bar lists, y'know?

There might be utility in there. But why must every new media-finding service advertise itself like some kind of post-human nightmare?
