Updated this old post of mine. My original solution is a little embarrasing - the way I'd do it now is no much more elegant than what I was doing 5 years ago!

This post of mine is old now (Feb 2012), but some of the issues I cover have resurfaced following Matt Mullenweg’s announcement in his State of the Word 2013 talk that we’re moving toward more frequent updates.
This has provoked further discussion in the community about the impact of this on the enterprise, most notably in Chris Lema’s Developing WordPress for the Enterprise article (http://chrislema.com/wordpress-for-the-enterprise/).

So here's my problem with Google+:

Twitter is just short throwaway content.

Google+ allows longer more detailed content, along with comments, sort of like a blog.

So why do people blog here on Google+ instead of on their own blog? Sure, higher engagement because your 'friends' are all here, but you don't own your content and you can't monetize it. We should be building our own web properties.

Of course, I shouldn't be writing this here, should I?

Potentially stupid question, but is there a way to search Google+ for the latest public posts on a certain topic? Or do I just use google.com and search for site:plus.google.com?

Edit: The google.com search was useless. Perhaps this is a large gap in Google+. Right now it seems like it's no good for following what people are saying about breaking news.
