I did not expect much, but I am impressed. Very clean and minimalist.

I had been preparing for a black swan event like this for the last four years since I began NewsBlur. With the deprecation of their social features a year ago I knew it was only a matter of time before Google stopped supporting Reader entirely. I did not expect it to come this soon.
There are two simple reasons for this: usage of Google Reader has declined, and as a company we’re pouring all of our energy into fewer products. We think that kind of focus will make for a better user experience.
For people like me, who have grown accustomed to reading all of their news via RSS, this is disappointing. Hopefully I can find another service as good as this one is (was).

Finally, the day is here: posts whose titles links to external sites now do so in the RSS/Atom feeds, too.
