Creative minds Chris Kirk and Heather Brady decided that they needed a space in which to grieve when their trusted Google services went and died on them. Together they came up with the Google Graveyard, a virtual burial ground for all of the programs that this search engine has developed, only to see fail or be cancelled.
Anyone can go visit the site and place a virtual flower on the graves of such ideas as Google Search Timeline, Google Reader and, one that hit me the hardest, Picnik. There is even an empty space ready for Google Glass. Only the last 3,000 flowers are shown as they are cleared out regularly, showing that many people's lives were touched by these Google services.
