Google announced yesterday that it would turn off its RSS feeds reader Google Reader. Personnaly, I’ve been using Google Reader since 2008 and really loved it. I think Google never really tried monetizing this service and is now shutting it down because it costs too much money to maintain. I must admit I miss the times when Google was just launching a whole bunch of awesome apps for free and focused mainly on creativity, innovation and bringing a better user experience to the web.
Anyway, we’re already seeing a whole bunch of alternatives to Google Reader just popping out all over the web. While browsing through these new apps, I ended up on the digg Blog and they are trying to build a replacement for Google Reader.
The thing that looks amazing to me with this project is that they are actually asking for us users’ contribution to try and build the best RSS feed reader possible. I am going to give them feedback and if you’re interrested in supporting this project by giving some of your time, we may all end up with a pretty good service.
