A while ago I gave up on the idea that I needed to follow a news source in order to find out about important bits of news. Everything that had actually mattered in the previous few months had been mentioned on my LJ flist anyway, so I could reduce newspapers and the like to more of an entertainment/procrastination role rather than counting on them to keep me informed of important goings-on. I still read news sources, but I do so in much the same way that I read, say, IMDB or Wikipedia: it's fun and informative without having a goal of seeking out any particular information.

Yesterday, for the first time, one of those important bits of news came to me through facebook rather than LJ. Huh! I wasn't expecting useful information to come from that direction. I might have to actually start reading my facebook flist a little more regularly.
