Google Reader sparks despair

My initial enthusiasm at Google Reader has given way to despair. Though I was agog at the aging Reader getting a much needed facelift, the end-product leaves much to be desired. The Internet is abound with people complaining about the horrible new interface…and I can see the point. It’s all white, white and more white, in keeping with the color theme of Google Plus. While a uniform interface does lend cosmetic coherency, it’s not necessarily a good thing for individual products. Not everything needs to be painted in the same color.

Not only is the interface a misfit, Google Engineers seems to have done a buggy job with tag management as well.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
