Google Hub.

I posted earlier that Google+ should have been a hub. Obviously it's too late to change what Google+ is. However, it is not too late for Google to create a Google Hub.

Of course this would require Google+ to be relegated to just another sharing service in the Googleverse. As it is, our Google profile is the Google+ profile. This has to change.

So what is Google Hub?

With so many sharing services on Google, there needs to be a hub to tie them all together. On our Google Hub, we would see a stream of postings that we subscribe to. I don't mean the posting bypeoples we follow but their different blogs, channels, Web albums and others that we subscribe to individually. Not the wholesale posts of any particular individuals.

The Google Hub stream should include postings that we would be interested in even though we haven't subscribed to them yet.

There are many things that should be moved out of Google+.

Videos should definitely be restricted to YouTube. Photos belong on Picasa. Location sharing and local business clearly belong on Map, this is obvious. Long writings surely belong on Blogger.

Google should revive the Google Me idea. This would be our new Google profile. On our Google Me page, we'd have the usual bio and intro as well as links to our various sharing platforms on Google. I just love the name. Google Me to find out about me. Remember, we wouldn't follow someone but subscribe to their different blogs, channels, albums, etc individually.

We can share from the various sharing platforms and whatever we post end up in Google Hub for our subscribers to find. Conversely, we can share directly from Google Hub and the postings will automatically be transferred to the appropriate sharing services, videos to YouTube, long writings to Blogger, photos to Picasa and so on.

I just think that there's too much emphasis on social networking. Google Hub would be the antithesis of that. If you still want to social network, then Google+ would still be there. Google Hub would be a more systematic way of sharing.

With the changes on Google+, they should remove circles entirely and just have communities. We can follow one another on Facebook or elsewhere ☺. 

Or how about if they buy Twitter and migrate all streams there!

LOL! Apparently they're working on changing Gmail to Cmail, Google Photo to Google Choto, Hangouts to Cangouts, Google Earth to Google Carth, Google Maps to Google Caps.....

You know, this is what I've always wanted ☺. Reduce Google+ to just another Google service. Ideally, they should then create a "Google hub" to tie them all together.

Does consent need to be expressed? Is consent something that we think or feel without needing to be stated or does only "Yes" mean yes?

Story
Tagline
Just think, you and I have just six degrees of separation between us at the most.
Introduction
Personal philosophy
Be humble.

Politics 
Left of center.

Greatest leader
Mohandas Gandhi.

Favorite novel
"The Handmaid's Tale"  by  Margaret Atwood.

TV
I think LOST is the greatest TV show ever.

Movies
My favorite movie is  Alien the first one.

Favorite movie line
"There's a monster in your chest...", I never got tied of that.

Star trek vs Star wars
Star trek gives us what I think is a true vision of the future. Star wars is rubbish. Take away the lasers and space ships and  you're left with a medieval story of magic and sworcery and what about those stupid prequels?

Music
I love 1980's pop music (stop laughing ). But  my favorite song of all time is Bob Dylan's "Like a rolling stone".

Sports
I like watching sport but not a fanatic.
Bragging rights
I know why the giant statue collapsed leaving behind just the foot.

First of all, it just Looks very nice. I appreciate the ambience. The customer service is excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The most important thing for me, is that they seem to know their stuff, phones. It's refreshing to talk to phone shop attendants who actually know about phones.
