You are only in a hurry till you get to the front of the queue

When free is a pain in the ass. Thanks for killing Reader Google, NOT!

I live in Google Reader. Instead of logging on to various sites I just run through the important stuff in reader.

Well no more, as from the 1st of July the service is being withdrawn. Google says the following:

We have just announced on the Official Google Blog that we will soon retire Google Reader (the actual date is July 1, 2013). We know Reader has a devoted following who will be very sad to see it go. We’re sad too.
There are two simple reasons for this: usage of Google Reader has declined, and as a company we’re pouring all of our energy into fewer products. We think that kind of focus will make for a better user experience.

The word on the street is that we consume information differently now. Duh!

It is still damn annoying when something that works so well is taken away.

Ah well, here is my list for prosperity. I will now have to go to each site and try and navigate to what is important. The world is changing fast and keeping up is difficult.

Update: Feedly is awesome. Great work!
