> If you were a Google Reader user, then this article will help clarify why Google ditched it, but it and an article that the author links to also made me feel a little sad for where the interweb is headed under Google & Facebooks direction. My impression is these uber virtual entities aspire to be a one stop shop, and they are aiming to achieve that goal by slowly eliminating the most attractive attribute of the inter web: “We get a generation of entrepreneurs encouraged to make more narrow-minded, web-hostile products like these because it continues to make a small number of wealthy people even more wealthy, instead of letting lots of people build innovative new opportunities for themselves on top of the web itself.”
