When will developers get write access to the Google+ streams #API ?  Issue #41 has been open for two years already.

+Thor Mitchell I want to thank you for explaining the issue tracker (or rather your internal use) in such detail. I do think that this would make a great blog post for the developer blog. I have long wondered how much impact filing and starring issues really has (and I am often annoyed at "me too" comments...) -- Please, consider sharing this on a greater scale. It will make things easier for you guys and help us understand you better. Again, thanks!

One of the best car ads in a while =) Get well soon Max.
 
Max Page, aka “Mini Darth Vader,” is undergoing open heart surgery to repair a congenital heart defect this Wednesday. Please keep him in your thoughts this week, and if you’d like to help him as he raises money for other kids who suffer from heart problems, you can do so at this link: http://www.chla.org/max

Hi Google+ devs,

I just wanted to let you all know that I think it's near damn crazy that two years after Issue #41 was added into your issue tracker, for some reason, the developers at the Google+ team have still not added write access to the Google+ platform for us 'normal' folks.

Hootsuite gets access with Google+ Pages write access, yet other developers - like me - are just left out in the dark.

We want to support the Google+ platform, yet thanks to one of the largest Internet companies, we are essentially cock blocked from being able to write to streams in g+.

Facebook? They love us, we can write to pages using their API. Twitter? Same deal, tweet away. Foursquare? Yup.

Hell, even Orkut's API allowed you write activities.

+Thor Carpenter, you said on the issue that you are happy to talk about this openly as long as the discussion was left out of the issue tracker. Why is this issue not resolved after all this time? The functionality must be hidden away there somewhere.

What do you think of the latest viral Coca Cola ad?

+Coca-Cola captures feel-good moments on security cameras and creates a viral hit.

Which scene from this inspiring ad did you find most powerful? Does it prompt you to look at the world a little differently?

Play hard, code harder. Lover of Vyatta, Pica8, Xen & Ceph
Introduction

I am an Australian open source software developer, who loves programming fun and useful softwar.

One of my largest open source software projects, ShareSource is a site where people can collaboratively develop software projects.

It supported distributed version control systems before Google Code or SourceForge.

I live with the mantra 'Play hard, code harder'.

My joys in life are Vyatta, Pica8 (network switching & routing), Xen (hardware virtualisation) & Ceph (distributed filesystems)
