Tracking your favorite channels

Taka ... was just wondering if you were considering showing a number or symbol next to each channel that showed how many items you had read in that channel in the last (month?/week?). That would mean that it would be easy to see which channels one always clicks 'Mark all as read' .. thus becoming candidates to delete this channel. Also would possibly allow one to sort channels not just alphabetically, but also by number of news items read, thus bringing 'rich' value channels to the top more easily. Please just ignore if you think these are silly ideas.

This is an excellent suggestion. In fact, Awasu already tracks this information, it just doesn't use it for anything yet :-) One thing I've wanted to do for ages is make Awasu smarter in terms of watching what you do and then trying to adapt it's behaviour accordingly e.g. determing what your favorite channels are.

But I've been tied up implementing core features to date. Once Awasu starts archiving content, it will be able to store more meta-data and analyse your behaviour across the life of the channel which allows for some intriguing features.
