Objects in the room called memory

In some respects, memory is like physical space. It has limits to how much it can contain/hold.

For consumption of content on the internet, one needs to remember the names of all the 'places' where content is getting created. How many names do you remember?

Feeds and aggregators help in setting up a personal space where one can unburden oneself from remembering names and still consume content. But even if you consume content through feeds/aggregators, how many pieces of content and how many different sources of content do you tap into at any given time?

Whatever said, feeds/aggregators are more like your room. You can secure your belongings once and for all in this room. But you can't fill it like mad, you won't have space to move.
