Clayton Costa - My PLE is a mashup version of my virtual world

I have created this workflow to deal with the ammount of data I used to read everyday. Trough it, I could filter the subjects that are not of my interest, eliminate duplicates and post those information that I think are most important to others. But, to be honest, it is still more than I can digest on a typical work day - even using mobile devices to consume many chuncks of information along the day...
This very same flows are published on slideshare at and on my personal blog at
