A petition has been started to prevent Google from shutting down the much loved Google Reader.

The petition follows the company's announcement yesterday that as part of its spring cleanup Google Reader would be shut down on July 1st.

Daniel Lewis launched the petition called, 'Google: Keep Google Reader Running', less than a day ago and it has already surpassed 40,000 signatures and is growing fast.

This isn't just about our data in Reader. This is about us using your product because we love it, because it makes our lives better, and because we trust you not to nuke it. Oh. So, please don't destroy that trust. You're a huge corporation, with a market cap which rivals the GDP of nations. You're able to dedicate 20% of your time to products which may never seen the light of day. You experiment in self-driving cars and really cool eyewear which we trust (trust!) you'll use in a manner respectful to our needs, interests, etc. Show us you care.

Don't kill Google Reader.


We use Google Reader everyday as do many of our readers. We urge everyone sign the petition in hopes that Google will realize it made a mistake and reverse its decision.

Notably, Google Reader is also trending on Twitter right now...

I use it enough I'd be willing to pay an annual fee for it to continue to operate.
