A set of 604 curated "locally notable" G+ profiles


https://pastebin.com/raw/0Wh4BJah

This list comes from a set of contributions from +Eli Fennell's listing here:

https://plus.google.com/110619855408549015935/posts/XrZkNKam1Jo

Though not strictly-speaking "signal flares", I've submitted the profiles to the Internet Archive's Wayback machine (scripted via the "Save" URL) -- that part took about 90 seconds. Sorting out grabbing all the profile names and IDs from G+ HTML (and wrestling with local systems) a couple of hours.

A really good reason to pin a #signalflare post is that that pinned post WILL SHOW UP IN THE INTERNET ARCHIVE when saved.

(I'll schedule another save or few of this through April 2.)

This'd be a good set of folks to keep tabs on and through whom to find others.

I'll be adding this to the #PlexodusWiki Notable Names Database (NNDB) ... eventually:

G+ Migration Post Mortem: What went well, what went poorly, what are lessons learned?


We're now well into the post-Google+ period, and I'd like to open up the question of how things went.

I've got my own mental list of things which went well or poorly in the process, of the latter, many of which involve myself.

This is open to contributions and discussion.

Discussion here or at PlexodusReddit.

There's a Plexodus Wiki Post Mortem page open as well.

ArchiveTeam uploading of Google+ content to the Internet Archive


So it turns out that fetching data from Google was only part of the archiving process -- the other is sending that to the Internet Archive. That's what this image (and link to the tracker) shows. About 2/3 complete by my eyeballing here:

https://atdash.meo.ws/d/3-kDz8Emz/telegraf-aggregated-stats?orgId=1&fullscreen&panelId=9&from=now-15d&to=now

(That's going to be relatively current for the next day or so, given it's a relative date offset of about 15 days.)

I've also heard that the Communities fetch may not have been as successful as hoped. Again, that was intended to capture effectively the paginated views of G+ communities, though it was an additional goal, and started late in the process. The contents should (mostly) make their way to the Archive, but it may not be easy to navigate by Community there.

And there is an Archive Team Google+ Archive Collection at the Internet Archive which makes navigation a bit cleaner: https://archive.org/details/archiveteam_googleplus

You are of course welcome over at sister sites like friendica too!

Hello and a big welcome

to everyone new to diaspora*


With Google+ closing today, you might have just signed up to diaspora* looking for a new home. We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us! We have a big existing community of former G+ users, and you could try tags such as #gplusrefugee and #googleplus to connect with people you know from G+.

We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.

Here's a few tips for getting started:
  • There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
  • You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
  • One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some #tags of subjects that interest you (maybe #music, #photography, #linux, or #activism ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.
  • If you have any questions, post something with the #question or #help tag, and people will try to help you. Make sure to make your post public so anyone who can help is able to see it!
diaspora* has some very simple community guidelines, which we hope everyone will feel able to follow so that all members can have the best possible experience here.

We're trying to improve diaspora* all the time, fixing bugs, honing performance and adding new features. But how fast we can do this is limited by the time developers have. To improve diaspora* faster, we need more developers! If you've just signed up and can code, or know someone who can and who might be interested in joining our team, get in touch!

<3 diaspora*

Programming vs. Software Engineering? Or why I think that "Software Development" best captures the essence of what we do.

New arrivals from #GooglePlus and elsewhere may appreciate this.

So good that there's #GooglePlus takeout - now that it's closing down. Too bad it's 504 - that's all we know - all the time I try it for real.
 

Google+ public posts are being preserved by the Internet Archive

Archivists are racing to preserve Google+ before it shuts down next month.

In a post on Reddit, the Archive Team announced its mission to preserve and backup Google+ content to the Internet Archive. Google will commence the shutdown of its failed social network project on April 2.

According to the archivists, only public Google+ posts will be saved. Private posts and posts that have previously been deleted will not be archived. If a Google+ user does not want their content archived, the team behind the project recommends putting in a request to remove specific pages with the Internet Archive.

Well, this would be good news and I'm thinking in the interests of preserving all sorts of Internet history (like your first ever website back in the day) I hope that Internet Archives maintains sufficient funding to keep going for many decades and longer.
