It has been quite a week for anyone that has grown to use Google Reader as the news is sinking in the Google is killing their RSS reader. There’s been quite a bit of chatter about alternatives. After learning about not being able to use the service after July I started to consider how that would change my process. On Thursday I received an email from an associate editor at Mashable asking if I would be interested in doing a guest post about RSS. On Friday my post titled RSS Can’t Fill Google Reader Void went live on the interwebs.
Below are my quotes and images from the post.
The popular theory seems to be that people will move on to another RSS reader, and life will go on as usual. I’m not that optimistic.
Twitter is not the entire answer, but I do think there’s a great element to tapping into a system that is somewhat human.
