Google Reader Knows Me Well
When we first got Tivo, we had Tivo’s recommendations turned on. Between our roommate who liked to watch SpongeBob and Sean’s fancy for the Simpsons, Tivo decided our household would love programs targetted for toddlers. Our receiver got so focused on recording the likes of Little Bear and Blue’s Clues, we finally disabled that feature.
Google Reader just recently started a recommendation feature. Guess what Google Reader‘s top recommendation was for me! My own blog!!!! Those programmers at Google are amazing. How did they know I would like to read about hiking and butt cookies? 😉 So I went ahead and subscribed.
I don’t expect any surprises to surface with the subscription to my own blog, but I think it is safe to say Google Reader is already more accurate than Tivo was.
