Oddly, I have missed, until this week, the "follow others" feature in google reader. I first discovered it when Henry Farrell noted that his "shared items" is a repository for things that don't quite make it into a post over at Crooked Timber.
Following other people's Google Readers also popped up when Chris Blattman recommended to follow Rajeev Ramachandran.
I have added these three people to my reader, and am amazingly happy with the results. Each acts as a curator for a different area of interest, and I reap the rewards (which I suppose makes this project second order curation, as we get more and more recursive).
So, the question becomes: Who do you follow on your reader? Who else should I follow?
