Why isn't G+ integrated with Google calendars yet?

Google+ should allow documents to be shared within a community without having to change the privacy of the document to "Anyone with a link"

My submission for the DOE Joint Genome Institute Poetry contest  #JGInPoetry ! Poem was inspired in part by a talk by Gerald Tuskan (Oak Rigde) at JGI 2014 User's Meeting and is 10 lines long to mark a decade of the Community Science Program.

ENERGY IN THE TREES

Poplar tree growing fast and tall:
how do your genes make your cell walls?

Enzymes string together sugars into rows,
to make straight fibers you know as cellulose;

Reverse this process during cell wall degradation,
and you get sugars for biofuel creation!

Alas there’s also lignin, an amorphous beast;
lignin linked to cellulose blocks sugar release.

To solve this recalcitrance, the genome holds the key,
let’s make better poplar — for sustainable energy!
