Now on Google Reader

I realized the other day (as I was migrating all my RSS subscriptions from Bloglines to Google Reader via OPML) that I had really fallen behind on my Blog and News reading.

I had finally decided to try Google Reader because of a post about the "Attention Economy" that I had seen on Sam Sethi's blog about European Startups, Vecosys. The statistics that they collect and report back to you are particularly interesting and on that basis alone I decided to switch.

The user interface didn't take much getting used to, most likely because it is a bit reminiscent of Gmail and it behaved how I would have expected it to -- allowing me to expand and collapse posts as needed, among others. The ability to tag and star things also helps.
