+David Belliveau I think he just believed the mainstream media that it was a ghost town and he just stopped using it. Sad really as, as you say, Google+ solved a lot of the issues that other social networks still have. It would be good to see him posting again and it saddens me every time he comes off with the line that G+ died.

We vacate the TWiT Brick House Studio tonight. These pictures remind me of the pictures from the abandoned city of Chernobyl. I'll miss you Brick House. It was a great five years.

Both Bill and Leo have a wonderful way of taking the most difficult of all of scenarios and explaining them so that non tech-savvy people like me can enjoy.

+Brandon Eaker​ no he's not. Leo is a paid off. Just look at all the greats who left there's a reason no one likes Leo anymore. I have no personal hated or anything towards him. Just stating some facts out there. Sad really I used to love Leo twit network listened none stop, but now its just horrible. Floss weekly is the only show left that's worth watching.

Gotta say Leo that the up nose, balloon waist, photography is not flattering! Still impressed with the Vr commitment, perhaps put the camera at head height so we can see what you see.
