Reading the news can be a real drag.
It’s depressing, it’s dense and you wonder if your life or the world would be any different if you read yet another article about the BP oil spill. It’s tough to connect epic war sagas to my life of sitting in front of a computer and hanging out at the park.
Although, I actually love reading the news. It’s full of rich stories and usually great writing. I want use Facebook and The New York Times to connect what’s going on in the world to what’s going on in my life.

I got the idea when Aditya posted a status citing that his newsfeed content is more interesting than the New York Times. And, he’s not the only one who feels this way.
