First PicasaWeb, now Google Reader.... I'm worried that Google has become so focused on making Google+ work that they are shutting down everything that could possibly compete with google+.  how long until everything is gone?

I agree that getting rid of Google Reader is a bad idea, but one of my major complaints with Google Plus is that it isn't Integrated enough with the rest of Google's services. For example, Google drive and Google Plus seem to be separated. Blogger, too, to a certain extent. So if this is the first step in integrating everything smoothly, I support it. But yeah, I'm going to miss reader.

I recently developed a mobile #app for #anonymously mapping Wi-Fi hotspots. My goal is to collect enough data such that I can publish an #open #dataset for other researchers to use. If you have an #android device it greatly appreciate it if you'd install my app.

We normally do not put personal posts on this page, as they can be complicated matters and usually do not pertain to CyanogenMod news. That said, something is affecting us in a way it really hasn’t affected us before, and it’s hitting very close to home.

Within CyanogenMod, we have dozens of maintainers and hundreds of contributors; none of whom are paid employees. Yes, we get donations, but despite the jokes of yachts, helicopters, and private planes, it is really just enough to cover operating costs for servers and hosting. Occasionally, there is enough leftover in the team account to buy a device for a developer. What we are getting at here is that CyanogenMod is not rich.

There are, however, times where we wish that we were a full fledged company. It’d be nice if CM could pay for some full-time positions or help out team members when they are in need. Currently, we are experiencing a painful reminder of this limitation.

A member has had a pretty serious problem fall into his lap. +Ryan Scott (aka ChiefzReloaded), a device maintainer, has a rare infection known as Necrotizing Fasciitis. This infection is caused by bacteria that eats skin, fat, and other tissue; it is literally a flesh-eating disease. Ryan is going through the treatments that he needs to keep him alive, but unfortunately, that treatment quickly becomes very expensive to deal with, and it is no exception for Ryan. This disease has placed an incredible strain on him and his family, including his young children. The CyanogenMod team would love to be able to hand out a fistful of cash and help out as much as possible.

Love from the Community
Some members of our community have started a few initiates to benefit Ryan and his family. As we are unable to help out financially, we would like to lend our support for these community initiatives, and help spread the word.

+Polo Heysquierdo has started an Indiegogo page for Ryan at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/scott-family-fund. This page has some more details on Ryan’s condition and a method for you to help the effort.

Additionally, a huge community favorite and someone who the CyanogenMod team loves, +Deth Becomes You has started an auction with proceeds aimed at helping out Ryan. https://plus.google.com/u/0/107290707477228775864/posts/BYfaDHZeJKt

And last, but not least, you can send donations and words of support to Ryan directly via paypal. chiefz.reloaded@gmail.com

We understand that not everyone can help, but even if you can’t, sending Ryan and his family some kind words and sharing this message will go equally as far.

Thank You,
The CyanogenMod Team

Absolutely amazing! I was not expecting to find anything like zest in SLC. Coming from Boston I've had the opportunity to eat at a lot of vegan/vegetarian restaurants and Zest is as good as anything I've had back east. I would highly recommend Zest to anyone looking for great vegetarian and vegan food.
