Google to Kill Reader Data on July 15

Google Reader is no longer a place that exists on the Internet. Accept it. Move on. There are alternatives out there to ease the pain. As it turns out, though, the memory of Google’s doomed RSS service is living on for the next few weeks, meaning you can still download a copy of your data before running off to another service.

Downloading your information couldn’t be easier. Simply enter your Google credentials, and the Takeout service will do the work for you. All your feeds as they existed on Reader will be saved into one OPML file, which you can then import straight into something like Digg Reader. By now, you should have already done this.

Your final, absolute last date to get your information is set for July 15 at 12 p.m. PST. After that, your RSS data will be gone forever. Forever.
