    • Another thing that occurs to me is that people will probably tend to add lesser or temporary interests of theirs over time, and then one's sort of core interests will become increasingly diluted in the feed -- forcing people to periodically prune their topics, if there are no home feed filters. Maybe one likes cat pics, but not nearly as much as, e.g., linguistics and cognitive science -- cat pics will dominate less popular topics in your feed, unless you can leave cat pics turned off most of the time.

      Great insight. We also think that there should be a way to elevate your core topics. Our current thinking is to mark core topics in some way and then to filter or navigate to them directly. We've held off on this project until there is enough topics on Cake to start working on it. This is @bstrong and my passion project, so we are hoping to start working on it soon 😉.
