Many people have a habit — immediately search on-line when a particular news catches their attention. Or it could be a name, a product, a question, something search-able, but something not related to their immediate task and don’t require immediate investigation.
If we warehouse the curiosity, very often we realize that topic is not worth searching. This is similar to a help desk’s internal policy “Depending on the urgency, wait N minutes before reacting to a request since the user will likely need it investigated less urgently than they now do.”
