Google, in their vast wisdom has decided to shut down Google Reader. I understood when they shut down Buzz, and Wave, but this one, I have to admit doesn't make a lot sense.
But it's theirs and they can do with it as they please, so now those of us who make regular use of it are going to have to find an alternative.
The bad news is that so many of us who love Google Reader will have to find something new.
The good news is that there are several alternatives that will work.
