re: Google To Close Reader In Product Purge
First IG now Reader, my two most used Google products are going away. I have well over a thousand feeds added to Google Reader. There are other readers I can import to, and do, but I am really going to miss this product. I will switch out the G icon in my toolbar to Feedly the minute they shut down Reader.

re: Google To Close Reader In Product Purge
As a big ol 'nerdboy' I use Google Reader to track the latest movie, TV, comic-book and other geeky news. I'm really disappointed in Google's decision.

I just looked at the petition link you included Tom, and it looks like it's inching very close to the 100k mark. Do you think that enough public outcry would cause Google to reconsider?

If Google wants to drop Google Reader then there are other alternatives with all the Google Reader functionality and more. I would suggest checking out NewzSocial (http://www.newzsocial.com) which has better functionality than Google Reader and cool social news sharing features built in. NewzSocial also has a channel about the end of Google Reader: http://www.newzsocial.com/goog...

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
