Dear Readers,

A somewhat smaller issue due probably to the celebration in the USA.
I see that this publication still has not achieved popularity due to the
choice of subjects. I remember my deep intellectual grief when in December 2009 the model of it, Internet Resources Newsletter ceased publication after 178 monthly (equivalent of 712 weekly) issues.
I am thinking about what to do:

- to stop INFORMAVORE’s Sunday after issue 500;
- to transform it in a regular newsletter;
- to sell it to a serious buyer who has better connections and more readers

Hopefully I’ll have time to decide.
Yours truly,

  1. The problem is Peter that Informavores is TOO interesting. If I look at it, I click on far too much that takes up to much of my time and I neglect other important stuff. I try to only dip in once a month...


  2. Thank you dear Nick! What should I do? The interestingness of the World is constantly increasing- that's the essence of evolution see please:
    It is in some sense, a heavy weight interestingness
    therefore usually the people are attracted by easy I-ness as the sex life of celebrities.
    I think this problem of the INFORMAVORE has no solution.
