Hello, multitudes of readers (for Very Low Values of “multitude”). I thought I’d point out some changes I’ve made to the blog recently. The visual redesign is obvious if you actually visit the blog (but you would have no idea it happened if you only read the RSS feed). But I also added a widget on the right panel that shows the most recent items I have shared via the Google Reader service. Should you want to check out all items I have shared there, the URL is http://www.google.com/reader/shared/ddiamantaras. I find that I use Google Reader more and more to set aside notable tidbits I want to share. My recent discovery of the feedly Firefox extension has accelerated this process, as I now find perusing Google reader and sharing items from there in various ways (the above, but also via Twitter, Facebook and email) much more pleasant.
