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

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