Call for tech writers to stop disparaging Google+ and its users! Please +1 and reshare this! +Engadget has decided in their great wisdom to hire writers that dismiss *+Google+, and insult its users.* Writers like +Andrew Tarantola, who write for such blogs as +Gizmodo, and have little to do but be dismissive and make snarky comments simply because people didn't find him interesting enough to circle him. < That is their problem!

These writers never established a large following, because Google+ is about engaging conversations, rather than reposts of tech articles and easily obtained likes. We have to earn a following. So, people like +Andrew Tarantola get upset because they never pass more than 100 followers, while people who are otherwise unknown, build circles of thousands. So, they write about Google+ and its "2 users," as a means of coming to grips with being so uninteresting.

Think about that for a minute. +Google+ has not failed by any stretch of the imagination. It is a very successful and vibrant community, and I think all the B.S. tech writers are dismissive because they want it easy; they don't think they need to engage or communicate with their readers. This is about people wanting the status quo to continue, as it is easier for them to wrap their head around facebook and twitter because those networks don't require further engagement with real people, other than contests and cheap advertising tricks.

I for one am tired of it, and think we should all be making sure to get the message out that Google+ isn't going anywhere, and it is time for these tech writers to get with the program, or learn to write without making snarky dismissive comments about platforms that they failed at because they are not interesting enough.

Lets show these tech publications, blogs, and even +Sergey Brin and +Anil Sabharwal that they need to take Google+, and all of its users more seriously!

Thanks to +Charise Strandberg, who happens to have 30k more followers than +Andrew Tarantola.

Strongest #ElNiño ever? NASA'S scientists project an event stronger than 1997.
The 1997-1998 El Niño was distinguished by record-breaking warm sea surface temperature anomalies in the equatorial east-central Pacific Ocean. So far in 2015, increasing equatorial warmth is developing alongside a positive Pacific Decadal Oscillation, characterized by persistently higher sea ...

Friendly staff and great views paired with very typical American roadside cafe fare of the sort found at truck stops and small town casinos everywhere. If you're looking for a place to stop on your way somewhere this is as good as anything and 30 miles from the next nearest thing. Food, Gas, Lodging... What more can you expect?

Best health food store in South Lake Tahoe; their new location is much newer and nicer than the old one and they have a huge selection of organic food and supplements. If you need vegan or organic supplies this is the place to get them in South tahoe.

Full bar and excelent food at this local's favorite mexican restaurant - they tend to be crowded and the bar can get a bit noisy, but the Chile Colorado is the best I've ever had anywhere. I personally have never has the service problems some of the other reviewers complain of; but realize that they may be nicer to locals and regular customers.

Good selection for a relatively low price; the general's chicken is excellent. I used to go here all the time when I used to live in Gardnerville about 5 years ago and was pleased to find the owners remembered me and still treated me as a valued customer years later.

Very healthy choice for gourmet food close to the ski resorts in Tahoe. It's a good idea to make a reservation as the place is often packed. The sweet potato fries are totally amazing.

Very large flame-broiled hamburgers and oversize fries in a dinky, touristy place. Their indoor space is limited, but they have a large outdoors seating area with a nice natural setting. Everything is actually made fresh to order and there's no problem getting a special order.
