One of the pinnacles of my daily routine. So important for managing my incoming content and streams. Next to Search and Gmail my favorite of the Google products! What am I to do? Let's just hope the community will know a good workaround or start a sound alternative to move over to. Instapaper's creator Marco Arment has a good take on the subject:
I hope to see a service rise from the ashes of Google Reader. One open and one that can distribute content a way that matters most: for the reader and not for the product. There's a petition to keep Google Reader too. At time of writing it has gathered 10k autographs. The least Google could do it keep it on until there's a sound alternative, since Reader killed off all of their competition.
But a 'We the people' initiative, that's taking it too far guys.
