This is a special message for readers who subscribe via RSS (For those of you in your inbox, the mailing list is powered by the RSS feed):
First off, thank you so much for reading. It’s really tough to explain how much writing, sharing, and connecting with the people who follow this site has impacted my life. By subscribing, you are the ones who have trusted in me enough to let my posts come directly to you.
On July 1st, Google is shutting down Reader. Google Reader is the way that most people subscribe to feeds and the engine that syncs nearly all feed reading applications. I’m still figuring out an alternative to Reader and my beloved Reeder for iPad for my own reading purposes but want to offer you options for continuing to follow and reading Hack/Make.
The RSS feed will continue to function as normal and you can subscribe in your new feed syncing service of choice. If you think RSS is dying along with Google Reader, you can subscribe on Twitter, on App.net, and via the sent-once-a-day-max Mailing List.
If you’re new to my site, the best way to catch up is by reading my book. If you’re looking for something else to read, here are a few post on how I feel about Google:
Thanks again for your continued support.
