I feel like I should post something here so my last "plus" or whatever we're calling these things now isn't from October... but seriously is anyone still using Google+?

I'm feeling really dissatisfied with all social networks right now and I can't figure out why. It seems like there's an opportunity for a new player to make a breakthrough though.

Hopefully, I can mentor this time around (maybe).
 
We've just announced that we plan to hold Google Summer of Code 2013!

Historically, Google Summer of Code has brought together nearly 6,000 students with over 300 open source projects to create millions of lines of code. We’re looking for mentors and students to join us in making 2013 the best Summer of Code yet!

The Google Summer of Code program is designed to encourage student participation in open source development. Kicking off in 2005, the program has several goals:

• Inspire young developers to begin participating in open source development
• Provide students in Computer Science and related fields the opportunity to do work related to their academic pursuits during the summer
• Give students more exposure to real-world software development scenarios (e.g., distributed development, software licensing questions, mailing-list etiquette, etc.) 
• Get more open source code created and released for the benefit of all
• Help open source projects identify and bring in new developers and committers

We’ll be offering successful student contributors a 5,000 USD stipend, enabling them to focus on their coding projects for three months. This program is done completely online. Students and mentors from more than 100 countries have participated in past years.

Google will accept applications from open source projects from March 18–March 29, 2013. Student applications will be accepted from April 22–May 3, 2013.

Find full details on requirements for participating, including how to apply and info on the all-important t-shirt at http://www.google-melange.com. We hope you'll consider participating as a student, mentor, or organization, or just spreading the word about this great program!
How Google Summer of Code Works. Propose a project for approval by a participating open source organization; Code the summer away; Achieve Ultimate Glory (and get a nice paycheck). Google Summer of Co...

+Aaron Schmitz they'll be fine though. Because google, unlike MSFT, doesn't end support of the product when they discontinue it. They are just preventing new users of google calendar sync at least for the sync to MS Outlook. Current users are grandfathered in thankfully, or I'd been flipping cow pies at them.

Google I/O 2013 registration opens on March 13th

We know you’ve been anxiously awaiting more details on registration for Google I/O 2013, which will be May 15-17, 2013. We appreciate your patience, and the wait is over!

Registration will open on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 7:00 AM PDT (GMT-7) and will remain open until tickets are sold out. Based on demand in previous years, we expect to sell out quickly. Just like last year, ticket prices will be USD $900 for general attendees and $300 for academic attendees, and you’ll need a Google+ account and a Google Wallet buyer account to register.

We’ll be sharing more information about registration and travel planning here and on developers.google.com/io before registration opens on the 13th.

We’re looking forward to bringing you an amazing and inspiring Google I/O experience!
