Now, I just have to train myself not to open up my web browser and start visiting the sites for which I now know there are no updates. It sounds ridiculous, but I’ve been doing it consistently. This confirms the habitual nature of my internet-browsing behaviour.
I’ve also still been using AgentFrank (www.decafbad.com/twiki/bin/view/Main/AgentFrank) in combination with the aggregators. What I would love now is integration between something like Spaces and something like AgentFrank. I’m sure this idea would make a lot of people ill (especially the paranoid), but I would like for an AgentFrankish thing to discover what I’m looking at (repeatedly or based on semantic closeness to things I look at repeatedly) and then start pulling new items into a Spaces-esque aggregator without my asking it to. AgentFrank helps me to stop forgetting the interesting sites I find, and Spaces helps me to remember (or, more correctly, to not have to remember) to look at the interesting sites I know about. The combination of the two could be really powerful for a scatter-brained guy like me.
