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?
