Hmm. I've built something similar to instapaper for myself. (Using a native OS X app). People were making jokes at me how I was re-inventing the wheel.

Now I'm somewhat happy having done the extra work. At least the FBI doesn't have my "read later" bookmarks. (Which often consist of the words 'hack', 'malware' and 'reverse engineering'.)

I guess I will reinvent the wheel instead of using cloud services more often in the future.

An in between solution would be better - write an open source version of Instapaper that people could install on their own servers, instead of everyone rolling their own.
