The End of Google+

All-
Google recently announced that they are shutting down the consumer version of this social networking site. Read through the link below if this is news to you.

I can't say I'm terribly surprised, many users dropped off of the network many years ago. With its launch in 2011 I was a big fan, early in adoption and promoted it strongly to others on other networks. I had hoped that it would become a great network. It was my favorite!! However, after a long 5 years of commitment, I realized that it was dying, not growing, and that the network just didn't have the user base. I continued to maintain the GeoSci Community, but I haven't posted much here recently.

So, with the end of G+ comes the end of this community. Thank you to all who joined and made it a nice online community. Google plans to take their time in shuttering G+, not shutting off the switch until August of 2019. I don't plan to wait that long; seems unnecessary to drag it out. I intend to shut down this community by the end of 2018. It's too bad it didn't take off and become something more.

So - how about we send it off here in the next month? Feel free to share "goodbye" posts or favorite memory posts of the Geosci G+ community.

Here's a compilation of shots I took with the new geodrone while out teaching field camp earlier this summer. Sites include Devils Tower, Bear Butte, & more. What do you guys think? I'm loving getting aerial shots of geologic landscapes!

New video up on my YouTube Channel - an unboxing and first flight of a new drone for the ONU Earth & Space Sciences program.

Already have got some really nice footage with it since this maiden voyage. Going to really add some nice perspective to field trips.

This guy has one of the best geology vlogs I've seen. The shots are really well executed and the story is a good mix of exposition and visuals.

My latest video project is a hiking vlog in the Great Smoky Mountains. It's easily the most ambitious video project I've yet done, and I'm excited to share it.
