Discussion on: I feel like the quality of posts in Dev is deteriorating

I don't know if someone could be able to create kind of "quality index" of technical articles on Dev. Maybe it's possible, but it's a complex task.

I think everyone can describe the bubble in which she/he develops the personal perception.
Nowadays I think it's very important to put a lot of effort on the content-curation: find and analyse good sources (authors/groups/websites), filter and organise them in a feed reader, maintain and update the list often, etc., etc.
This is the key.

Beside this, IMHO Dev is a fancy free-blogging platform which is mostly targeting social-media heavy users and developers looking for likes/network/audience.
Even if the background noise is very, very high it offers some high quality content too.
