      Never mind the fact that bloglines is an rss aggregator much like google reader. How bout some rtfa'ing up in this piece?

  • Note to self: delete Bloglines account before the data harvest begins.
  • Thank god bloglines remains.. there were 10's of dollars at stake

  • When Bloglines first annouced the shutdown I looked for a good replacment (didn't like Google Reader) and found an open source solution. I installed Tiny Tiny RSS on a shared hosting account and it's as good as Bloglines, better, actually because the uptime is greater. []
