Hey gang happy to be onboard for the conversation. I see a common theme in the posts so far. That is, G+ help us meet people we wouldn't have met otherwise. I became friends with Daria and Trey before ever meeting them in person. As Daria says, it turned the first handshake into a hug. I remember in Dec 2011, someone posted one of those Jib-Jab dancing elf videos that someone put together with some of the top followed people on G+ . Daria and I were "lucky" enough to be elfified. That's how we met. But, besides the strictly for fun stuff, G+ had some really powerful collaborative apps. It really was a powerful tool for collaboration that, for various reasons, never achieved its full potential. It was fun and impactful while it lasted.
