In a post earlier today, Google engineer Mihai Parparita posted a great piece on the Official Google Reader blog.
In addition to quoting a user that used Google Reader to find a new job, Parparita notes the many current uses for the product.
The mention of Twitter in the piece was 'interesting' :)
We adopted Google Reader a few months ago (See left?), and haven't been sorry since. Not only has our reader base increased exponentially, but it gives us a fast take on others posts as well.
We've also noticed in the past few weeks, prominent bloggers changing to and/or registering gmail.com addresses to make full use of the Reader feeds.
