You may have noticed that our main page looks a little different. The blogroll of prominent posts has now been replaced by a rolling list of tweets that link to blog posts. Commenters have weighed in with their opinions that the new system is not what they want.
It wasn’t what we wanted either. Google decided to put Google Reader before the cyberspace firing squad. Since our blogroll used Google Reader, it was gunned down in the crossfire!
Tony Kummer, our owner and techno-guru extraordinaire, explored all the options that were available and so far, this is the best system he has come up with. Perhaps someone will put out a new reader that will work like Google Reader did.
I’m not particularly adept at all of this technology stuff. (That’s another way of saying I’m over 55.) I just write, edit and annoy people with my moderating duties. So, I don’t have a clue how all of this operates. I just know that Tony has put in a lot of time trying figure out how to keep the system running.
But you should know that this was not a change we made because we wanted it. It was foisted upon us by Google’s decision to get rid of Google Reader.
