This is the last day that Google Reader will be around. The New Yorker’s Matt Buchanan looks at some of the alternatives. Using RSS readers never really went that far beyond Internet power users. But I’m still a little surprised that Google didn’t work to incorporate Reader into some of their more social offerings. For what it’s worth, I don’t use an RSS reader when I’m looking for NextDraft stories. I just open about a hundred tabs and then it’s just a cloud of dust.
