Google to shut down Reader

Initial reaction: Aw, Google. Why you got to go do a thing like that?

But it’s been a couple days since the announcement, and the discussion’s been pretty interesting. And while I still think this is going to be frustrating for users while we pack up and wait for everything to go down, as Brent Simmons (and many others) have said, developers have a great shot here. Nature, vacuums, etc.
