Google is a company that likes to release products in “beta” – meaning, “we’re just dating” not getting married to the app. They support lots of products for a while and then when they feel they’ve had their day, shut them down. Google Reader, although a particular favorite of many blog readers, is being shut down on July 1.
There are other alternatives for RSS readers (See Larry Ferlazzo’s post The Best Alternatives To Google Reader Now That It’s Being Shut Down).
But Google seems to be betting that RSS is not the way most people get their news. This blog is also available through email (see subscribe box on the right) or by following me on Twitter or Linked In.
As they say, the only thing that never changes is that everything changes!
PS ISTE is coming up next week – the “big daddy” of all educational technology conferences. Check out our exciting lineup of sessions and events!
