What I would add to Google Reader
I live on Google Reader. I think the sharing can be pretty powerful, and has enormous potential. But there are a few things that'd make sense -- especially if you combine it with tagging. It'd be nice to be able to have it so you could subscribe to a subset of links based on a tag. Most of us have diverse interests and we don't always overlap 100%. You might be interested in the technological items that I share but not the Doctor Who items, for example. It is relatively straight forward to build your own search engine so you can search your regular news sources.
I like the idea that the sharing can turn us all into filters. There's so much more information than any of us can handle -- and the challenge is how can we gather, summarize, and process all of this data all the time.
