Even with all of the numerous ways out there to aggregate and find content, I’m partial to the good ol' RSS feed. As such, Google Reader is still one of my favorite online tools — indeed, I find it well-nigh indispensible. So I'm happy to hear that it’ll be getting some design love to bring it in-line with Google's other products, e.g., Gmail and Google Docs. And while some people might find the loss of Google Reader’s social tools disappointing, it doesn’t bother me. Opus, Twitter, Facebook... those are my tools for sharing and disseminating content. Google Reader is for my eyes only, a private, carefully curated info stash.
