Spocking
 
Bank of Canada is pleading with Star Trek fans to stop “Spocking” its five dollar bills. Since Leonard Nimoy’s death, Canadian folks have been “Spocking” the hell out of the five dollar bill that features a portrait of Canada’s seventh prime minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

So excited for this to be out in the world!!  What I was working on at Google+.  Lemme know what you think!  
 
How Google+ is solving one of the biggest problems in modern photography
"We have become a society of documenters, holding our phones up at every available moment, shooting at anything that moves, or anything that holds still. But what do we do with all these pictures? Often, the answer is nothing. The things we do share are often just snapshots. One picture. Maybe two. But not experiences. Our lives get lost in the ever-scrolling streams of social media. We are a society of documenters that produces surprisingly little documentary.

Google correctly recognizes that the worst part of modern photography is figuring out what to do with all the pictures we take. And now it’s doing something for you with a new feature for Google+ Photos called Stories.

'There are products that think of photos as files, and there are products that think of photos as photos,' explains Google’s +Ben Eidelson, a product manager for Google+ Photos. 'But what we’re trying to do is think of photos as moments. This is a moment in your life that you want to do something with.'"

As +WIRED's +Mathew Honan explains, Google+ Stories are utterly magical. I've been looking forward to this feature for quite some time.

The doctor is very rude, the secretary was even afraid to ask him questions. He told me "sir, you're going to have to stop" when I asked him a few questions about my condition. Horrible experience. Do not go here if you can avoid it.
