Replacing Google Reader Share: Options emerge with Buffer,, IFTTT and others

On the Day of the Dapocalypse Google ended Google Reader Share, though my old shares are still accessible almost a year later.

Google left a hole in the net that hasn't been filled yet (alas, hivemined).

Something's emerging to fill that space. It's not Google Reader Share; but you can still see the shape emerging.

Today I'm using Pinboard,, IFTTT and buffer.

IFTTT is the glue that ties things together. Buffer and Pinboard are the note capture mechanisms. Buffer has more style, but Pinboard has the essential structure (title, link, comment) and it's willing to accept cash. is the wild card; a rapidly evolving set of services that may be the foundation for future solutions (see #googlereadershare)

I still miss GoogleReaderShare, but I'm curious to see what will come next.
