ANNOUNCEMENT (December 23, 2018): I have launched a new private forum both for the discussion of a wide range of Google-related issues and as a posting "home away from home" for selected Google+ refugees (that is, those among my followers who aren't alt-right sociopaths or other varieties of trolls). Access is by invitation only. If you'd be interested in receiving an invite, please send an email message to g-forum-request@vortex.com. This post will be repeated at intervals. Thanks.

My Social Media Plans:
1) I will stay active here and on any available form of G+ as long as practicable, including the possibility of paying as possible and/or as necessary.
2) I will not move to Facebook (I do not and will not have an account there), nor to the various "newer" and/or distributed model social media networks, e.g. Instagram, Snapchat, MeWe, Pluspora (or other Diaspora-based systems), etc.
3) I will stay relatively active on Twitter, which I've used to one degree or another since before G+ existed (https://twitter.com/laurenweinstein).
4) My blog (https://lauren.vortex.com), my various mailing lists, and my other venues of very long standing will continue as always.
This concludes this test of the emergency broadcast system.

Trump says he'll delay giving SOTU speech until shutdown is over (which, of course, is exactly what Pelosi offered him). He says he won't seek an alternate venue.

If Google can further secure the Chrome browser without limiting access by "legitimate" ad blockers, fine. Otherwise, I want to see the increased security, and to hell with extension-based ad-blockers that stop working. Most (not all) users of add-on ad blockers have freeloader mindsets anyway.

Thinking about a mass Hangout to discuss the way that Google is mishandling the Google+ shutdown and to consider Google+ user contingency plans. If you're interested in participating or viewing, please so note in the comments to this post. Thanks.

Pelosi responds to Trump: While government is closed, you will not be permitted to give your speech in the House. Period. Excellent.
