My inboxes are overflowing
I'm kinda behind in reading my mail. Not my regular mail which is up to date, but mail which I have filtered into folders as it arrives.
The folder with the most unread mail right now is from the Yahoo! videoblogging group.
1,081 unread messages.
I go in there from time to time and read the most recent, but I'm missing whole topic threads. Back in the good old days, a few months ago, I could keep up.
Now, we've got 100's of new members joining each month. That's great, but I wonder how they feel with so many messages flying by.
I've also fallen behind watching videos.
My unwatched video list is just like my unread email list, only I've got unwatched videos in three places, TiVo, FireANT, and Akimbo.
We're at the very start of the citizen media revolution. How will we be able to filter and watch all this new video content that's being produced?
