miscellany

Google Reader’s on its way out, and although we’ve got until July 1st, the announcement itself was enough to rattle me. Like at least half a million other RSS power-users, I went looking for ways to future-proof the way I feed my habit. I’m really hoping that Mr Reader finds a way to survive— it’s a handsome, but it’s also smart, with a buttload of support for custom url schemes that make it easy to push incoming content to wherever I need it to be for action, archiving or further attention. That said, I’ve been trialling Feedly. Not quite as powerful, but very slick. Over the past few days, I’ve found I’ve actually read more in the app, rather than bumping interesting articles to Pocket for later reading. Something to do with the layout and the space afforded to individual items…
