Google Reader updates me on the world

It's not just Google Reader, it could actually be any reader, but for me, it was particularly this free Google service that helped me.

I know what happens in México, even if I'm living in Germany. I don't have to buy a newspaper, or watch TV. It's all online... Though I must admit I have been never too interested on the news, most of them are sad anyway (except cultural or sports news), but I want to know. But the fact is that, it has become so easy to know...

This is possible because a lot of things, not only Google, but the ever growing blogging community, the syndication technology adopted by sites publishing content, and other global developments. The world becomes bigger and smaller at the same time.

And it's not just news, but blogs and all kinds of different sites sharing their stuff on the evil Internet.
