Microsoft Chief Blogging Officer stops reading RSS

Robert Scoble, RSS addict and popular blogger, has decided to stop using his RSS reader [Outlook 2007] citing information overload.
My logic was that I my brain would only remember a handful of sites and thus regulate how much time I spent absorbing information. The weird thing is that it actually works pretty much like un-subscribing from bulk email sources.
Mr Scobleizer has even unsubscribed from almost all e-newsletters, internal microsoft distribution lists, and setting up very strict email rules that filter away other sources of bulk mail. Now he finds more time walking around the Microsoft Campus [walking even helps you reduce weight]
