Street.com redesign

The long overdue redesign of TheStreet.com is up.

It looks to be a modest improvement over the sprawling mess of the old site. It will take me a few days to figure out if it is very much of an improvement.

Both TheStreet.com‘s original content and Seeking Alpha‘s aggregation have overwhelmed me with an immense amount of content. Its reached the point that I no longer find myself reading anything off of the home page –  it slides off way too quickly as new articles are added.   Rather, what I end up doing is reading specific writers (Kass, Helene, Shark, etc.).

Over time, I have created my own list of go to guys: Monoline Insurers? Yves Smith’s naked capitalism. Mortgage lenders? Calculated Risk. Dow theory? Richard Russell.  Earning analysis?  Zachs, and Bespoke Group. etc. etc. etc.

Is this a broad trend? I suspect I am not the only one who approaches information gathering / analysis in discrete bites.

Sometimes, less  is more . . .
