An open letter to the next generation of newsreaders | DavidChartier.com

http://davidchartier.com/open-letter-newsreaders/

myself:

If Google Reader, as it existed, lost enough popularity or utility for the world’s largest consumer data mine to get bored with it, something changed. We need new tools for sifting through news, and no, the global social media party of Instagrammed lunches, re-re-re-re-tweeted quotes, and snarky misinformation ain’t the solution. At least, not by itself.

Episode 4 of the Finer Things In… podcast is out! [iTunes | Direct feed]

For a hair over 20 minutes, John and I discussed what I refer to as “Newsreaders 2.0”—this new generation of tools rising like a phoenix from Google Reader’s soon-to-be ashes. We get into why there seems to be so much interest again in a post-social-media world and what’s different this time around.

Tips for Google Reader users migrating to feedly | Building Feedly

Since Google’s taking Reader out back behind the barn in three months, Feedly is one of the alternatives I’m considering. Like every competitor, they’re scrambling to move their sync service away from Google, but to make things easy on yourself you can sign up with your Google Account now and import your feeds. That way you shouldn’t need to lift a finger when Feedly flips the switch away from Google.

Feedly is a different beast in a number of ways, though, so I’m finding articles like this very helpful. Thanks, Tom Reestman.
