Non-Email Emails

Lately I've been noticing myself emailing a lot more from outside Gmail (or Apple mail). Mainly, I've been sending lots of stuff out via Google Reader. Since they added functionality that syncs your account up with your Gmail address book, it's easy to just send a friend a link (or whatever else) you think they'd find interesting. I'd say on average over the last few weeks I've sent out three a day. This is interesting to me for a few reasons: One, it's a great way to add value to a service with features from another within the suite. Two, the idea of communicating explicitly with content makes a lot of sense: It feels like it eliminates a step in the process. Anyone else find themselves sending a lot of links this way?
