The Myth of Read it Later

I think Read Later was always a fantasy. The Read Later app genre definitely sustained that fantasy in my mind far longer than it should have.

A post over at Practically Efficient sparked something for me tonight. My Instapaper inbox keeps growing infinitely – well beyond my ability to keep up. I’ve committed Instapaper bankruptcy a handful of times and even scheduled time to make a dent in it, with very little success. Time to stop pretending I will ever get to these articles.

I’ve read this post a couple of times now and can’t help but agree. My Instapaper inbox keeps growing infinitely – well beyond my ability to keep up. I’ve committed Instapaper bankruptcy a handful of times and even scheduled time to make a dent in it, with very little success.

That ends now. No more pretending. I will be making a quick pass through my account and then delete the app from my phone. I am sure it will feel liberating.
