Google’s recent announcement about ending its support for Google Reader caught me by surprise. I had long ago given up on actively using RSS readers to aggregate feeds and thought most others had done so as well. The outcry that spread throughout Google+, my social network of choice, was therefore a surprise.
One of my favorite media commentators is Jeff Jarvis. I especially enjoy his weekly converaations hosted by Leo Laporte on This Week in Google. Jarvis’ perspective always gets at the big picture of what’s happening with the web economy.
