This is something I can relate to. I came to Boingboing probably 10yrs ago in the hunt for a single place to entertain, inform, and share to others.At that time I'd say options were fewer but perhaps better quality. Now I find options are greater but general quality, privacy, malware, etc are compromising the experience.
More and more I'm finding myself going to maybe 5-6 sites on the web (slate, politico, BBC, a couple sport-specific sites, etc). My WWW is condensing. Perhaps this was Facebook's mission all along - condensing the online experience into a single room where participants are held for observation, targeted marketing, generating revenue.
I'd be grateful to other readers to point out some other places on the 'Net to reaffirm my faith in the whole thing. Old standbys like Wired.com have been contaminated, and as some others have noted - BB might be on its way as well.
PS - My deepest condolences to Americans this week - any thinking person's worst nightmare is being realized on the 20th.
