Google Reader is my most used web tool. More than twitter, email, and anything else combined. Why? I've read in the comments: speed, ease of use, ubiquitous, etc... all true. But something else I really enjoy about reader, that I doubt anyone else can match is: search. I "star" stories as I scan them (via Byline on my iPhone/iPad), and then frequently return to the reader site find something I skimmed. I'm basically creating my own search database, based on my interests, curated by me.   

At the end of the month, if I want to know everything I noted about "wearable tech" - I search my stared items, before I'd search the much larger and messy open web of google search.

This means in a short amount of time, I can find what I'm looking for - which I'd assume was a tenet of what google is trying to do ;-)

I'm sad to see my favorite tool go...
 
I have a question for avid Google Reader users: what are the aspects of the way Reader works that made it so useful for you? I've heard a number of things floated in the past day -- e.g., the particular sources available, the way of managing read/unread state, various aspects of the UI -- but I'd like to understand better what the concrete things about Reader were which people found the most useful, because I'd like to integrate those ideas into future versions of many Google products, and try to capture that value.

(NB: If you're seeing this via a reshare, please remember to comment on the original post if you want me to see what you're saying!)

Warning: This is not a thread to simply complain about the shutdown, or to ask Google to keep Reader. That's not something that I can help you with, nor is it a decision that I had anything to do with, and this is not a good place to get anyone's attention about that. This thread is a place to talk about specific things which are useful about it so that we can think about good ways to capture that usefulness in the modern world.

Comments which disregard the previous paragraph will simply be deleted. Comments complaining about my deleting those comments will result in me blocking and/or mercilessly mocking you for failing to read instructions. Comments complaining about that will lead to some interesting replies in a combination of languages, probably starting with Yiddish and moving on from there. Comments interested in the Yiddish language should instead go on my post from last night. (http://goo.gl/xxn7h, but I should say that I'm not an expert or a fluent speaker of the language)

NB: The comments have filled up! Please check out my comment at the end of the post.

I used to star things from all kinds of different services until I moved to Pocket. Now everything gets added to my Pocket and I can follow up when I have time. It also archives every article so you can still have your own custom search engine :)

Yeah, that's what I was saying: It's all or one. I agree they should be check boxes!

Hmm..this "nearby" feature has some promise. Would you happen to know of any open Product Manager positions at Gamestop or point me to someone who might know?
