+0.5 if you mean that there is a role for "push".

+0.5 if "thoughtful" means a feed catalog which stresses local relevance over broad Agency Public Relations. Data, not "News".  Points of Interest are where you find them, not where the audience is located. As a great philosopher once posited:
"You'll never find your gold on a sandy beach
You'll never drill for oil on a city street
I know you're looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks
But there ain't no Coup de Ville
Hiding at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box" -- Meatloaf
