Google Reader, Yahoo Pipes and …

These are both questions of the dear-lazy-web variety.

First off, I think Google Reader is pretty nice in quite a few ways (started testing it a bit after I saw the Scoble video about it some time ago) but the subscription management interface is pretty much useless. Hook it up with some drag-n-drop love? Anyway, I am just wondering if I am missing something, is there an alternate interface for dealing with this stuff?

Next up, some events in my life have necessitated that I acquire a Yahoo Pipes t-shirt, initial searches come up empty, do these things exist? Anybody at Yahoo I can convince to send me a small?

Thirdly, I thought it would be nice to have three “things” in this entry but I couldn’t think of a useful third. Oh, I have a PS3 now, it is great, only reason I still have a television.

  1. obvious advantage? not so much except that i expect some brainy developer at google to write some cool sorting based on activity/interest/nearness algorithm sooner than the NNW team, also has the benefit of using the firefox rendering engine rather than webkit, also has a built in way to let you share items you think are pretty swell

  2. “not so much except that i expect some brainy developer at google to write some cool sorting based on activity/interest/nearness algorithm” – yup that is “sort by auto”

  3. Google Reader pretty much rocks my feed reading world.

    The main win is being able to read the same set of feeds at home and at work. I subscribe basically exclusively through the Firefox interface.
