I blogged at Google Plus from July 9, 2011 until 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 and other locations. The Internet Archive 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 links to my major G+ posts. I list them here with the original G+ URLs (in case they're ever useful for anything) and their IA URLs.
