Finding information couldn't be easier, with the internet and tons of contributors, the world is quite literally at your fingertips. The difficulty now ironically is how do we sieve out the important/relevant ones? There're just so many news sources and information. Even just for one, say WSJ for example, it would take me at least a few hours to get abreast on everyday news covering politics, tech, deals, markets, international relations etc.
For myself, I try to speed read through articles but too often I feel like i'm reading words instead of obtaining knowledge. What techniques do you monkeys use stay up to date on relevant news? How do you all process so much information and distill the useful ones?
