Thanks for shutting down Reader, Google. It finally gives me the incentive I’d been looking for to spend the $30 for the self-hosted feed reader, Fever. I was wary of moving from my old self-hosted Feed On Feeds reader to Google Reader a few years ago, but Reader just worked so damn well, it convinced me to switch. And then the rug gets pulled out from under you. Time to return to my general policy of keeping my data on my own server where some random company can’t decide they don’t want me to use it anymore.
