As part of my aforementioned switch from the Mac to a Windows box as my primary envrionment, I abandoned my long-time Mac-only RSS aggegator for google reader.  So far I’ve been pretty pleased — it’s easily usable, and keeps up with the excessive quantity of feeds I aggregate, too.  Of course, having yet another basic app be network-based is also a plus.

A friend at work recently pointed me to the shared items feature of google reader, which creates a meta-feed of sorts consisting of the items I flagged as interesting from the various feeds I aggregate.  You can see them here, or grab a feed.  I just started using this, but could see it filling a potentially useful role for very lightweight interest tracking; for example, for things I think are neat but not worth tagging in del.icio.us, much less blogging.
