Dave Winer's instructions to the world: Read everything

Dave Winer, king of the (totally mainstream and not inbred) world of Internet news feeds, is known for his font of wisdom, the personal blog Scripting News.

Reporters should not only read their own feeds, they should read all feeds of all publications, professional or amateur in their areas of expertise.
