GitHub – ArchiveTeam/googleplus-grab: Archiving Google+.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/18

Soon this is a thing of the past, but for just a few more days, you can help: Archiving Google+.

Either run this project: [WayBack] GitHub – ArchiveTeam/googleplus-grab: Archiving Google+.

Or even better: run the appliance, and help the WayBack machine with any archiving projects setup by the virtual appliance: the [WayBack] ArchiveTeam Warrior – Archiveteam.

See some of their other pages for more background information:

You can donate both to the archive team, and the internet archive:

How is G+ archiving doing?

The tracker is well under way: [WayBack] Googleplus tracker Dashboard. History: archive.is 1; archive.is 2

Viewing is simple, but what about saving?

The WayBack machine has a few APIs (see[WayBack] Wayback Machine APIs | Internet Archive), and includes support for [WayBack] JSONP – Wikipedia.

Example URLs for the most simple API:

Before I forget:

Here’s one route.

  1. Go to Google Photos settings and set Google Drive –
    Sync photos & videos from Google Drive.
  2. Google Takeout. G+Streams.Photos.
  3. Unzip locally.
  4. Copy the contents of ‘Takeout\Google+ Stream\Photos\Photos from posts‘ to a directory in Google Drive\My Pictures
  5. Fire up “Backup and Sync from Google” to upload
  6. Check the photos are now present in Photos.

Bye, Bye, Google · Bogdan Popa

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/28

Interesting approach: saying good bye isn’t that hard if you do not share a lot things with other people through it.

[WayBackBye, Bye, Google · Bogdan Popa:

I spent this past weekend de-Google-ifying my life and, despite my expectations, it wasn’t too hard to do. I started by moving all of my websites off of Google App Engine and onto a dedicated box that I had already owned. That was straightforward enough. Next, I removed any Google Analytics snippets from each of them and replaced those with my own analytics server that I had built a while back (it doesn’t store any PII, only aggregate information (and very little of that, too)).

Don’t complain about the multitude of “places”/services that your fav G+ers are going and how that makes your life miserable. We all met here by accident, had a good time, mostly. And now we move on.

There is no “one size fits all” replacement out there. Instead, look forward to meeting new people and old friends at whichever place you are going to.

Find me on Twitter, Mastodon and infrequently on Pluspora. Or maybe at a (hopefully open and distributed) new place that doesn’t even exist yet.

[WayBack] OK, maybe Diaspora can become my “new home”, at least for sharing my blog posts and allowing comments. – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+
