Alan Jacobs writes a bit about his read-it-later strategy, one I also subscribe to. I throw things into Pocket but never read it; it simply scratches a hoarder’s itch to save something without the consequences of dealing with it. (Same with my Amazon wishlists; they’re parking places for items I hardly ever think about again.)
The best read-it-later app for me is Mailist. I have it send a daily email with a single link from my pile of read-it-later links. I like the randomness of not knowing what will arrive, and it’s always interesting to see what interested past-Mike that has no interest at all for present-Mike.
