Google Reader: What a Bunch of Geeks


What do regular folks read online? It’s so hard to tell. We now know at least what the geeks read.

Mike Arrington posted a list of the most popular sites and blogs followed by folks who use Google Reader, a little data tidbit that Gabe Rivera from Techmeme pulled together.

Another bit of data is always important and nothing to sneer at. Still, it’s a total (male) geekfest. Techcrunch, Endgadget, Make Magazine, Google Operating System are all in the top 50. The only relief comes from news sites like BBC, Defamer and PopSugar. At first blush, what you can tell from this is that Google Reader seems to attract guys who looooove tech and who also loooove Google.

Ok, so maybe not that much of a shocker!
