I blogged at Google Plus from July 9, 2011 until November 5, 2018. When Google [https://www.blog.google/technology/safety-security/project-strobe/ announced] in October 2018 that it would terminate G+ for users like me, and delete all our posts, I began saving them to the [https://archive.org/ Internet Archive] and other locations. The Internet Archive is also [https://www.reddit.com/r/plexodus/comments/az285j/saving_of_public_google_content_at_the_internet/ trying on its own] to capture all the public G+ posts from all G+ users. I hope to say more later on how these efforts turn out. Meantime, here are links to my ''major'' G+ posts. I list them here with the original G+ URLs (which may be useless after April 2, 2019) and the newer, permanent IA URLs. —[[Peter_Suber|Peter Suber]].

Revision as of 20:17, 26 March 2019

I blogged at Google Plus (G+) from July 9, 2011 to November 5, 2018. When Google announced in October 2018 that it would terminate G+ for users like me, and delete all our posts, I began saving them to the Internet Archive (IA) and other locations. IA is also trying on its own to capture all the public G+ posts from all G+ users. I hope to say more later on how these efforts turn out. Meantime, here my major G+ posts. I list them here with the original G+ URLs (which may die after April 2, 2019) and the newer, permanent IA URLs. —Peter Suber.
