Losing context

I've been so consumed with a very few blogs and activities of late, and realized that there were at least a dozen that I'd been neglecting (easy to do, because they're bookmarked on a computer not currently connected to the Internet and with a screwed-up USB automounter).  I thought about making quick visits to a few, and....

realized that I couldn't remember their URLs, or even more than a couple of names.

There really is a limit to how much you can keep track of.  I can sympathize with major policy-makers who can't keep up with all the arcana, and I'm beginning to think that even their best advisors may have a valid excuse for missing important facts and trends.  It really does move too fast to keep up.

I already use Scroogle to keep my search history out of Google's hands; I'm not about to give them a list of everything I read.
 
Lots of different feed readers out there.

Borrow my list if you like. Use the tag index by subject.

I'd forgotten what a bee you have for privacy.
It is possible to keep a private bookmark file at Yahoo - but I don't see that helping matters effectively.
Even feed readers must collect information somehow to work.
