Too many feeds to read? Time to trim down RSS subscriptions

Web feeds readers have truly become an "inbox for the web." Until recently, I was subscribed to about 600 web sites, blogs, medical journals, podcasts and persistent searches. With so many feeds to read, information overload became a real issue, and I trimmed down the number of RSS subscriptions significantly this month.
