Question

What software do you use to curate & discover quality content?

There’s so much content fighting for our attention these days. I use Twitter, blogs (like Stratechery and Daring Fireball), and quality newsletters (Like Benedict Evans, Scott Galloway, Inside Intercom) to discover great content. It’s a lot.
Wondering if there are ways to automate discovery and “bookmarking” of content, that accurately filters by your interests??

Nuzzel.

You connect your Twitter and optionally Facebook (I'd recommend only the former; tends to be higher signal), and Nuzzle figures out the most popular links shared by people you follow. It then turns them into an email digest to catch up on without checking Twitter. As someone who follows a lot of people in different timezones, it's a great way to see what was talked about on Twitter without spending much time checking Twitter itself.

AndersPink is also great for aggregating the top tweets from your network. You can use it to create cool custom daily topic briefs.

Just checked out some of the ones you're subscribed to. Any particularly good ones in there I should check out?

The ones that I actually use the most are private. You can create a variety of custom timeline / newsfeeds, according to publication type, niche expert curators, influencers / contributors / creators you like, etc.

I also love Stratchery, and have curated a list of my favorite authors on Substack for high-quality newsletters!

Shameless, but also potentially helpful plug: a friend of mine is launching the beta of his curated audio news app next month (www.bytenews.co). The platform discovers and summarizes news stories into short (< 1 min) audio summaries and packages them into personalized daily briefings to match your interests. Each story is linked to three original sources to dive in for the full read. Of course, you can star/favorite a list to read later. Hope this helps! :-)

What's the best to-do list app in 2021?

When you've got too many things to do, how do you keep track of them all? Have you started using a new to-do list app recently, or found an old one is still doing the job well? The last time we di...
