Using Google Reader to see “deleted” blog posts

The internet doesn’t forget things.

If you come across a missing or deleted post that you want to read— for example, if you want to see what Newsweek’s Dan Lyons (aka Fake Steve Jobs) is apologizing about, try subscribing to the blog in Google Reader.

Click “add”, and you might find the deleted post. In this case it’s not very interesting (Jared Loughner’s picture next to one of Steve Balmer), but I’ve found it a useful trick.
