Google Reader in Plain English [video]

After the popular video by Common Craft explaining RSS to everyone, Google Reader team had hired Common Craft to explain Google Reader in a minute. If you’d like to learn What is RSS? first, click on that link to watch that first.

Here is that lucid video. (if you are in a feed reader, click through to view it)

Alright, are you sold on using Google Reader now, see how ShanKri-la looks in it by grabbing our RSS feed? :wink:

    That really does sum it up… pretty quickly!

    I must say since discovering Google Reader I haven’t looked back – before I used to get email updates that just resulted in missing most people’s posts due to the high level of spam.

    Now with Google reader, I can jsut log in a check updates at a time to suit me!

    Gotta love it

    Google Reader rocks. I’ve been using it for the last year and it makes life so easy though as your article highlight, RSS isn’t the easiest thing in the world to explain to others. I wonder how it will be before RSS is understood by most people?
