Sending to Pinboard from New Google Reader

This is what I've set up to quickly bookmark stuff on Google Reader in Pinboard:

In Google Reader:
Hit the "Options" gear in the top right corner and pick "Reader Settings".
Go to the "Send To" tab.
Pick the "Create a custom link" at the bottom of the page.

Name: Pinboard
URL: https://pinboard.in/add?url=${url}&title=${title} ${source})&tags=via:googlereader,via:${source}
Icon URL: http://pinboard.in/favicon.ico


To use, pick the "Send To" option on the item in Google Reader, and pick Pinboard. A new tab (or window, depending) will open, with a few things already filled in. This does require that you be logged in to Pinboard.

My options take the article title and the source as the title for your bookmark, and fill tags that specify that the bookmark is from Google Reader and whatever the feed source is. You may want to tweak that depending on your tagging scheme.

Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
