Since the last and recent Around the webs in 78 hours, we had quite few new entries of interest: but first things first. As some of you have heard, Google will stop Google Reader on July 1st.
Most of you are using Google Reader to come watch the news on Nuit Blanche. What are the alternatives to Google Reader ? John Cook crowdsourced this question a while back and here is his response:
If you’re using Google Reader to subscribe to RSS feeds, you’ll need to switch to something else by July 1. Here are 18 alternatives.
Any feedback on which of these replacement does a nice job is welcome. If July 1st comes and finds you with no replacement for a particular RSS reader, just remember Nuit Blanche is the place to start. You can subscribe to Nuit Blanche's feed here and get you new reader to be updated with entries from this blog.
