We’ve said it before but this time, it’s for real. Google’s RSS feed Google Reader will be cutting off users from retrieving their RSS data on Monday. This means they’ll have to find another way to collect all their content in one place without having to gather it manually from different websites.

Jonathan Zittrain at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society says the death of Google Reader is indicative of the end of an Internet era. He joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss.
