Since google reader now sucks and since hivemined.org isn't ready yet and since it's probably good that I rely on yet another third party service that will let me down, I've created http://infloop.tumblr.com/ for you to ignore.

Google has taken away the single reason I used Reader in the first place, which is a great big middle finger right in my face. This, plus their position on anonymity, plus the "SSL search if you are logged in" makes me realize that Google doesn't give a rat's ass about what the experience is for their users as long as they improve their position. Hey, more power to them, but it makes me resentful as hell. As soon as I can find a replacement for Reader, I'm outta here.

From http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/making-search-more-secure.html

"Over the next few weeks, many of you will find yourselves redirected to https://www.google.com (note the extra “s”) when you’re signed in to your Google Account."

Big Google wants to protect my privacy as long as I am logged in.

And hiveminded.org looks to be exactly what I want. newsblur.com doesn't seem to have the same sharing features.

I just watched the HBO documentary on Bobby Fischer and it was absolutely gripping.

espn3.com has the Spanish Super Cup, but only with the Spanish commentators. Still totally worth it to watch Messi, Ronaldo, et al in action.

Wow, what a game. That back heel from Pique to Messi was sublime.

Alex: When you listen to the Spanish commentary, I think you get more out of it than I do. :-)

SCOTS still make me laugh, even after hearing Lordy, Lordy for the 50th time. "When your lip comes out and touches your chin, I don't know what I did, but I won't do it again."
