I had to stop following some silicon valley tech personalities because the content was no longer a value. When your known for tech, insights, and valuable information your a value. If you go to politics 90% of your posts your going to loose half of your audience. Thank you +Mike Elgan​ for keeping your feed enlightened.

Congradulations +John Hanke , I love +Niantic but I don't go to Starbucks and I Don't play Go. How about an #Ingress  partnership on the West Coast with DutchBro's Coffee?
They do far more for the community and keep me caffeinated for my hacking sprees.

On December 8, we announced an official collaboration between Starbucks and Pokémon GO. This originally transformed 7,800 Starbucks locations in the United States into either PokéStops or Gyms. Today, we’re happy to share that over 5,000 additional Starbucks stores in the United States have been integrated into the game as either a PokéStop or Gym, giving you even more places to play Pokémon GO and to engage with your local community. Look for the special-edition Pokémon GO Frappuccino® at a participating Starbucks location!

Hey #ingress  peeps, I removed +Brandon Badger from my circles, he doesn't post any valuable tech, ingress, or inspiring information anymore and prefers to share his political hate for Trump. Follow him if you like that sort of thing, otherwise I suggest you do the same and #NeverBadger  him again like me :-)

Good idea! May need to feature this in a future model home
When your husband designs the kitchen

May the Plus be with you,

+John Hanke , Does +Brandon Badger still work at +Niantic ? I was following him for #Ingress  and tech news but his posts now are only politically anti-trump. His profile needs and update if not, I think he got a job with the DNC or he is moonlighting. :-)

7 things Silicon Valley needs to stop doing in 2017

(Read my column: )

Silicon Valley is an amazing place of innovation. It's a geek Mecca, a destination for professional nerds -- the technology capital of the world.

Silicon Valley is the only district in the world where people know more about the Wojcickis than the Kardashians, are more likely to have an elevator pitch than a committed relationship, and are more familiar with Github than with snow.

So many of the products and services that have transformed our world for the better were cooked up here. Today's smartphones, social sites, search engines and app-centric sharing economy services like Uber and AirBnB were all dreamed up by young visionaries in towns like Cupertino, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, San Jose and San Francisco.

Despite the best efforts of city planners around the world, Silicon Valley cannot be replicated. The Silicon Valley miracle is not the product of incentives, zoning, universities or planning. It's the product of culture -- a perfect blend of utopian, hippy, business, researcher, hacker, inventor and imperial mindsets.

But this mindset has a dark side. And now that tech has gone so thoroughly mainstream, the dark side is more apparent and affects and annoys more people.

Here are the seven things Silicon Valley needs to stop doing in 2017:
