I blogged at [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google%2B Google Plus] (G+) from July 9, 2011 to November 5, 2018. In October 2018, Google [https://www.blog.google/technology/safety-security/project-strobe/ announced] that it would terminate G+ for users like me, and delete all our posts. I was [https://conifer.rhizome.org/petersuber/peter-suber-g-blog-2011-2019/20190301193159/https://plus.google.com/+PeterSuber/posts/1Fc9YY6qdgy not happy] about it.

I began saving my G+ posts to the [https://archive.org/ Internet Archive] (IA), [https://conifer.rhizome.org/ Conifer], (then called WebRecorder), and other locations. I saved a small fraction to the IA, and [https://conifer.rhizome.org/petersuber/peter-suber-g-blog-2011-2019 nearly all of them to Conifer].

FWIW, I made the IA copies in reverse chrono order, using the IA Chrome extension. All the ones above had HTTP URLs and all the ones below had HTTPS URLs. Looks like IA changed its practice while I was in the middle of this job. I tried changing some of the URLs above to HTTPS and they still worked. Hence, trusting that sample, I changed the rest of the URLs above to HTTPs. I haven't changed any of the URLs below. -->

Revision as of 12:55, 30 August 2020

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), Conifer, (then called WebRecorder), and other locations. I saved a small fraction to the IA, and nearly all of them to Conifer.

Here are my major G+ posts. I list them here with the original G+ URLs (even if they're mostly useless after April 2, 2019) and the newer, permanent URLs for the IA and Conifer. —Peter Suber.

  • Altogether I wrote more than 1,400 posts for G+.
  • Here I list 71. I started with a smaller number, and may add more over time.
  • For my older blog, Open Access News (2002-2010), see my details elsewhere.
  • Most recent first, just like a blog.
