I wanted to learn a bit of D3, so I made a small web app that shows (nearly) realtime webserver statistics as pretty graphs. Built with D3, Node.js, Backbone and jQuery UI (and probably some other buzzwords too).

Yes, Google+ is Google's answer to Facebook, but not in the directly competitive sense many journalists assume. Google+ is core to Google's mission "to organize the world's information", and that's a better frame for thinking about this service.

Here are 35 slides to help kickstart a different perspective on what Google+ really is - a "shared interest graph."

I tried to make this tour as easy as possible with some nice images along the way. Credits for all those nice images are on the last slide.

P.S. - I've had multiple requests to post these slides via Slideshare, so here they are via my blog:

The sad irony of selfishness

The irony, of course, is that selflessness (not selfishness, its opposite) is precisely the posture that leads to more success. The person with the confidence to support others and to share is repaid by getting more in return than his selfish counterpart.

Here, +Seth Godin seems to be speaking as someone who has not actually tried what he's preaching.

In the past, I've given 1000s of hours of my time and expertise to others. In return I've asked for nothing, and largely I've received nothing. Sure people are often grateful for a while, but then they forget, or even come to expect more for nothing -- that's just how your relationship now works.

By all means give, but also make it very clear (to others and to yourself) what you expect in return. Only then will "[s]haring your money, your ideas, your insights, your confidence [...] return to you."
