Migrating Off Google Reader, continued

It's been obvious, since Google Plus was released, that Reader can't possibly be long for this world, and everyone has to simply jump ship. (I'm saying this based solely on outside observation.)

Luckily for me, I didn't use most of the social features of Reader. It served basically as an online list of links I thought were cool, and an RSS reader.

For an online list of links, the obvious choice is del.icio.us. It's been working very well for me. The little bit of sociality I did use in Reader, following other people, has ported over nicely to del.icio.us as well.

For an online RSS reader, it's less obvious. Most of the options seem to have been decommissioned, have turned into awful "enterprise"-focused products, or simply don't work. After some searching, I found netvibes.com, which actually isn't a competitor to goodvibes.com.

I'll see how it goes. Luckily, it looks like Google Reader was completely replaceable.

[Edit, 2013-03-14: It's not paranoia if they really are out to get you.]
