Google Liz Gannes at AllThingsD has an interesting perspective on the Google Reader shutdown. According to her sources, the shutdown was motivated by concerns over compliance - especially privacy. She explains how every product team needs compliance officers, and that Google was unwilling to create such an infrastructure for Google Reader. "The context for this concern about compliance is Google's repeated public failures on privacy due to lack of oversight and coordination. It's pretty clear why Page is trying to run a tighter ship."

Google so noble. Even when they fuck users they do so for noble reasons. After all Google have been champions of privacy for a long time, it's what their whole business is based on, respecting privacy.

An alternative view of the new Google from an ex-insider.
