Instapaper Triage

In a post about a lot of different things, Alan Jacobs slips in a bit about how he uses Instapaper.

Whenever I see something online that I think I want to read, I put it in Instapaper — and then I try to leave it for a while. Often when I visit Instapaper the chief thing I do is delete the pieces I only had thought I needed to read. So for me it’s not just a read-later service, it’s a don’t-read-later service. But that only works if I don’t go there too often. I try to catch up with my Instapaper queue once a week at most.

Oh, this is such a cool idea. I need to go through all of my saved pieces and start deleting.
