Nearing 2 years on Google Reader

On April 2, 2007, I switched to Google Reader as my RSS reader of choice. The only feature I find missing is a way to sort starred items by date. Since I couldn’t, I decided to navigate to the bottom of my 2,256 starred items and look through them in chronological order. Stir in some meme and here’s the first starred item for every month I’ve been using Google Reader.
