How do you find the stuff that interests you on Stack Overflow?
I have set up a list of ignored tags to hide stuff that really isn't relevant to me (.Net mostly), and for some low activity tags (such as Haskell and evolutionary algorithms) I have subscribed to the feeds. Despite this, I still find it frustrating trying to locate the questions that I want to read and avoid the ones that I don't.
I end-up browsing through several individual tags, but this approach is sure to miss interesting content. There is too much new content to read through it all, and if somebody posted something good 12 hours ago while I was asleep, I am unlikely to see it.
I welcome any suggestions on how to become a more effective Stack Overflow user.
Ideally, Stack Overflow would have a more intelligent home page that would make suggestions based on my previous voting patterns. In the absence of this feature, what is the best way to find the interesting content? Does anybody have external tools that they use (e.g. Yahoo! Pipes) to filter questions? Or is there something else that I am missing?
