Is Google+ Being Pieced Apart? Dismantled? Rebranded?
It's time to call in the Ghost(town)busters!

Well the internet is buzzing again with doom and gloom for Google+. Reports by the typical outlets have taken more comments from Google employees out of context and spun another series of sensational articles about the demise of Google+. 

Well, sorry to burst your bubble guys...

Google's own +Yonatan Zunger confirms
The 'streams' name has been there all along and has nothing to do with an upcoming change:
https://plus.google.com/+JaanaNystr%C3%B6m/posts/NfgyHjvivsB

HT to +Jaana Nyström for that one.

Thoughtful commentary from +Derek Ross...
Also confirming that 'Streams' was always part of the language and thoughts on 'decompartmentalized' features:
https://plus.google.com/+DerekRoss/posts/7NqKXDxueHP

Well resourced post from +Chef Dennis Littley about the constant changing of Google+
https://plus.google.com/113055030863291439319/posts/j3XZ4WeRukE

Thoughts from +Ben Fisher about the core purpose of Google+
As well as some commentary on posts written by others about the subject.
https://plus.google.com/102572320061138442096/posts/GJwwZiRKNsr

Great piece from +Mark Traphagen on LinkedIn about the future of Google+
Talks about the staffing changes and impending enhancements to Google+ that may include an application of an AI project Google has been working on.
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/google-split-up-what-does-bode-future-mark-traphagen?trk=prof-post

So, no folks, don't believe everything anything you read from big news sites who's business model is based on page views, especially when it comes to Google+.

Nothing against that model, but it's been proven time and time again that journalistic accuracy and integrity is trumped by creative sensationalism as a means to drive traffic.

Will be adding more resources on this as I find them. Got any I should add?

Newest issue of YES!: Together with Earth

So-called modern progress has depended on exploiting the Earth’s resources as if they had no end. We’ve lost touch with the ancient wisdom that we are partners with Earth and all life on it. Now is the time to reclaim our sacred connection with Earth, and to think deeply, radically, and personally about the best ways to keep this planet—and its millions of species—alive.
