I’ve spent a bit of time messing around with the algorithms behind NerdlyNews. It was doing what I wanted, picking out interesting articles from a large amount of noise, but given the large number of choices, it was still too noisy itself. I’ve tweaked a couple of parameters over the last couple of days and I’m hoping it’s now going to be a pretty solid but not too busy of stream to keep up with. Maybe it’ll get to the point of only noting some really interesting and important articles.
