The freedom to Mark all as Read

I love Google reader but I read slowly, I like to take if what I am reading. On Saturday my Google Reader had over 1900 unread items. Well thanks to some great advice I am down to 860 unread items. Scoble told me that even though he subscribes to that fat stack of feeds, he only reads what he can, and then just…. marks all as read!

In the keynote Anil suggested unsubscribe as a way of catching up, but Scoble responded that you should just mark all as read and pick up later. I did do a bit of feed cleanup, but it really feels good to just let information float away like that.
