I didn’t write at first, the pain was too raw, but as you’re all no doubt aware Google have managed to annoy literally every keyboard warrior on the internet by discounting Google Reader.
Ryan Avent has the most interesting take on this. I just tried to excerpt some of it and couldn’t because its a long, very well constructed argument which you should read in full. “Google is becoming not only part of our infrastructure but part of the way we think, how long can we leave that in private hands” is, I suppose, the best sentence long summary I can come up with. Seriously, read it.
Anyway, I’m switching to feedly, which a lot better than when I first used it a couple of years ago.
