Digg Reader Not Close to Ready for Prime Time
June 26, 2013 | 10:25 am

Digg ReaderI woke up this morning to an invitation to join Digg Reader. OK, I confess I did wait until after breakfast to try it out. (Does that make me a bad tech blogger? Or just a hungry one?) Too bad I waited. Apparently all the folks who either don't sleep or don't need to eat got in first and broke it. I signed in, authorized Digg to grab my feeds and was presented with a (boring) screen like this.

Digg Readying a Google Reader Replacement
March 15, 2013 | 10:00 am

Digg Google ReaderWell, that was fast. Digg announced yesterday that they are building a Reader replacement. Apparently they’ve been planning it for a while—they're just moving it up the priority list. Good for them! I’m liking this part of the announcement: We hope to identify and rebuild the best of Google Reader’s features (including its API), but also advance them to fit the Internet of 2013, where networks and communities like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit and Hacker News offer powerful but often overwhelming signals as to what’s interesting. Don’t get us wrong: we don’t expect this to be a trivial undertaking. But we’re confident we...
