I blogged at Google Plus (G+) from July 9, 2011 to November 5, 2018. In October 2018, Google announced that it would terminate G+ for users like me, and delete all our posts. I was not happy about it.

I began saving my G+ posts 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 are my major G+ posts. I list them here with the original G+ URLs (even if they become useless after April 2, 2019) and the newer, permanent IA URLs. —Peter Suber.
