Hey Google, here's a thought. Why don't you organize the G+ source code into a repository on GitHub and make the whole thing open-source? Let the folks who obviously care about the platform the most take over and develop it into a community-driven social network construction set. You have some great tools that no other platform has successfully duplicated yet (like your photo lightbox), so why not make heroes out of yourself instead and donate the whole shebang to the community that loves the platform? 'Twould potentially make a huge #WIN out of this whole "shutting down G+" debacle, IMHO.

Eh? Eh?!

Angry turtle sez "Yup".

A Top Down View -- Fort Collins, Colorado
"If we were all to chase every squirrel that comes running along in the form of a personal dispute or a mischaracterization of someone, or someone's integrity or intent, we'd be very busy doing that and not focusing on the government, on that which we need to reform internally."
-- Mike Lee

A very mischievous and wary Red Fox Squirrel watches carefully for the opportune moment when my attention is no longer directed at him so that he can whisk down and steal some seeds from the bird feeder in my backyard.

None Shall Pass - Tempe, Arizona
A Great White Egret stands sentry atop a spillway at a holding pond on the Salt River near Tempe, Arizona, ready to spear any fish that swim by. He had secured a sweet lookout spot that he then protected from other egrets and birds, quickly shooing any intruders away with an impressive spread of wings and some sharp jabs with his beak. Plus, he posed nicely for a few photographs. :)

Salute The Sun -- Fort Collins, Colorado
“There is a wealth of knowledge that is openly accessible in nature. Our ancestors knew this. Their classroom was nature. They studied the lessons to be learned from animals. They are constantly teaching us things about ourselves and the way of the universe, but most people are too blind to watch and listen.”
-- Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun

Taken By The Mothership -- San Francisco, California
“You are not your job, you are not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You are not the contents of your wallet. ... The things you own end up owning you.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

Looking straight up the main atrium at Nordstrom's San Francisco... I gave myself a pretty bad case of vertigo trying to align this shot just right. ;)
