Screenplay idea: Man gets amnesia and reconstructs his life from blog comments he wrote. Short film -- he kills himself after 11 minutes.

The End of Breaking News Alerts

I'm still signed up for at least a dozen residual "breaking news" email alert lists, which triggers a bukake festival in my inbox when things like Michael Jackson dying happens. With Twitter, RSS readers, and everything else, it's time to finally ask is email an anachronistic delivery method?

I find the financial ones useful - the shit that only business reporters are going to uncover first. EMC buying some company, stuff like that. Journalists tend to still beat twitter on that stuff unless it's like Apple related or something.
