BTC - There really is no shortage of great information available on the net. We get so much great content which used to get dumped into our Facebook feeds. For now, we are using our twitter feed as our fast track to informing those who would best served by what should be regular decent briefing for readers.
The point of REDUX is to get a short list of relevant news which would ordinarily escape, but gets a second chance here on BeatTheChip.org. Obviously we failed our own self-imposed editorial goal of posting 3 original pieces a day. It doesn't mean we aren't watching the blogs to catch the news and brilliant editorials worth mentioning. The sheer volume and scope can be overwhelming. With REDUX it's possible to re-post direct links to the most relevant news of the day without drowning in the constant distractions of social network news trolling.
