The news last night, however inevitable, that Google was going to shut down Reader hit some people particularly hard. While I don’t expect Google to resurrect Reader any time soon (it has been in maintenance mode since the sharing buttons were taken down), it would be nice for Google to build and articulate a migration path for those affected. I’ve mostly moved to Twitter/Facebook/G+ for my news feeds. But, what if Google let you pull all of your feeds into Google Plus? Seems like a no brainer, right? Good for Google Plus, good for Reader folks?

Anyway, here’s the petition.
