Oh, my, the choice I made to start a link blog using Google Reader’s technology is just looking better and better all the time.
Today they started a social network. Please do join up! My Google Name: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Add me as a friend, particularly if you are also sharing items in Google Reader. Make sure you edit your Google Reader settings, first, though. Hint: if you look there you’ll see more possibilities for new features coming soon!
Here’s the official blog post on the Reader/Talk features.
