How social media changes news consumption

Its amazing how working and being with our community has changed my own perspective on news and events. On a flight back from Orange county today I spent some time thinking about the ways I get news now versus a year ago. My top 3:

1. Daily RSS feeds from over 148 bloggers – politics, sports, community, marketing, startups, entrepreneurs (No CNN, Rediff, MSNBC or NPR). If a blogger talks about it I would know.

2. Daily TIVO recording of Jon Stewart show. We have a limit of 30 min max TV daily at home for all of us. Mine is done in 22 min.

3. Email discussions with friends and other associates.
