Alt.Net Mailing List - The Hidden Benefits

Since the Alt.Net mailing list saw it's first post on October 8, 2007, the list has seen an average of 87 posts per day. The content is wonderful (now that we aren't arguing about the name so much).
This high volume has also done wonders for my ability to scan and speed read. This is a skill that I had during my schooling but seemed to have lost. Now that I have been following this mailing list, I have seen much more zero-bounce in my blog reader - even though I have more feeds coming in.

Now, I can finally keep up with the volume of content coming from Ayende's blog.
