RIP Google Reader—A Big “Hey Thanks” for Breaking my Internet

I was only going to post this dumb picture in regards to Google shutting down Reader, mostly because I’m supposed to be working. But this news is really bad news for me. It’s been such a part of my workflow for as long as I can remember, and with iPad clients like Mr. Reeder, RSS really hit its stride for me. And that’s what’s going to make it hard to find a replacement. G-reader plugs into the entire internet. Between the IFTTT recipes I have set up and the 15 or so apps that I hook up to it, this is going to make it much harder to spam my friends with articles about quantum physics.  I doubt there’s anything anyone can do about it, but now I have even more reason to hope that Glass is a flop. Jerks.
