Top definition
Online reading phenomenon in which a person begins with a list of links to articles/blog entries from an RSS feed (such as Google Reader), and opens several as new browser tabs.

While reading through the tabs one by one, reducing their number, the person finds links to other articles/blog entries, which will be duly opened as additional tabs.

The result is that the number of tabs on the browser continually expands and contracts, accordion-style, and before you know it you've wasted half the day reading an endlessly regenerating stream of linked internet nonsense.
Guy 1: Dude, where have you been?
Guy 2: Sorry, got caught up in some accordion reading online - couldn't stop adding more and more new tabs of stuff to read. What, is it time for Church?
Guy 1: Um, it's actually Monday now.
