Niall lunches with Google Reader Team

Niall Kenedy: The team is still growing and adding new features including a public Google Reader API to allow other developers to create and extend applications on top of the Google feed ecosystem.

Randy: If y'all don't know, I use Google Reader as my primary news reader, although in any given week, I'll use upto a dozen different readers to test out new announced features. Of late, Google Reader is getting more and more buggy, but it's still the best there is. That said, I like GreatNews a lot and it's the only native RSS reader that you'll find installed on my harddrive for more than a week at-a-time. Down the road, a public Google Reader API and an RSS engine built into IE will mean that the back-end and the front-end of your RSS reader are likely to be developed by two different groups. This could be interesting. Note, GreatNews already does this today with Bloglines. Download it and see the future.
