A better word than "Feed"?

Mitch Ratcliffe seems to be searching for a word to replace "feed". He suggests an alternative:

Well, seems like we want a word that reflects the vitality of information. We want it to be resonant with "feed" because people get that idea of a subscribed data stream. I propose bleed, we ooze data all day long, like a slow-bleeding cut and we're all acting like data vampires much of the time.

Kinda gross, if you ask me. I don't want an information source that bleeds on me... ;)

What else might you propose?

CHANNEL. I like the word "channel" in place of "feed".
