Google Reader is an integral part of people’s every day lives (we use it all the time), and we were dismayed to hear that Google is shutting it down. How could they do this to their loyal users? They cite declining use, but there are a lot of less popular Google services out there. Google, we beg you, keep Reader around.
But begging won’t work. Maybe a petition will? There is one going around, and in 24 hours, it has blown past half of the 100,000 signatures it needs. With almost 70,000 at the time of writing this article, it’s getting there fast. Do us all a favor and sign it! We don’t know if anything will come of it, but it’s worth a try!
