How do you consume the flood of serverfault data on a daily basis?
The favorite & ignore tags helps a bit, but I still find it to be a flood of information that is hard to digest. Sub/more specifics sites like the ones currently being proposed in Area-51 are really interesting (such as Telecommunications, Networking) to me for this reason.
What discovery methods are there then to help 'bubble up' topics that are of interest to me?
Are there any tools, add-ons or extras that you use to better utilize the stack exchange forums? There used to be a Firefox add-on that provided some filter of tags, but it is no longer being developed.
