Stream+ Released: One of the First API Mash-ups for Google+

I want to start this off by saying how incredibly talented Mohamed Mansour, and those coding with him are. Google+ released their API to the public yesterday afternoon, and within 10 hours the first useful, functioning mash-up was released by Mohamed and his team.
