I like the idea of Google Reader's Shared Links pages. I think they are a nice way to share interesting posts with friends. So tonight I added the link to my Shared Blog Links page on the navigation to my site.
I do wonder how some of the more popular bloggers feel about it. I know that Scott Hanselman puts a disclaimer in at the end of each post in his feed that reads.
© 2006 Scott Hanselman. This Feed is for personal non-commercial use only. If you
are not reading this material in your news aggregator, the site you are looking at
is likely pure evil and should be stopped.
On the other hand, I also read Robert Scoble's blog and he uses Google Reader's Shared Links page to share with others. I think he has gotten some flack, but for the most part it seems very accepted.
I doubt my links will ever be loaded up like Robert's links and I will
try to remember never to share links to Scott or anyone else who I
think might be offended, but it is out there for now.
interesting thought on the subject, I dislike the style of the shared
link page from Google. There is a feed available (of my shared feeds)
and I thought I could quickly whip up a page to consume that feed and
display it in a manner I prefer, but I thought that might be taking it
too far. Would it?
I want to be clear that I'm not trying to
take ownership or rights to the works in the shared links. If I
embedded them into my site somehow it would likely seem like I was.
