Chinese researchers modify the genome of human embryos
CRISPR-Cas9 gives scientists the ability to easily alter the genome of living cells and animals. This technology could let scientists correct DNA letters in a human embryo or egg cell to create children free of certain disease-causing genes, or perhaps with improved genetics.

Know of any [Inspirational/Business/Social/Marketing] Quotes from your favorite Google+ users off the top of your head (or with a relatively quick search if you know where it may be)?

I'd love to include them in a post I'm working on now. It's a bit more of the ...fluff variety than my usual fare. However, I will be putting my own spin on things, so no worries - not being taken in by the dark side.

I know you didn't produce this, but it looks nonsensical (or perhaps not useful) to state that IBM developed a mirror to focus 2000 suns... We only have one Sun nearby enough to do anything useful with

Stop Riding the Pine, and just get in the game!
Had an absolute blast (almost two hours) talking to +Jaime Jay of the +Stop Riding the Pine Podcast. 

Some highlights from Part 1:
Who is Andrew “Andrij” Harasewych? (2:45)
How easy or hard is marketing? (4:50)
Andrew talks about his Google Plus community. (8:35)
The good and bad of managing a large community or a lot of followers. (15:40)
Where does Andrew spend most of his time online? (19:35)
How do you set up recurring Google Hangouts? (20:52)
Can you keep using the same link for every meeting? (22:39)

Marketing is simple. It’s positioning; it’s knowing what your audience needs and giving it to them. -Me
This podcast interview with Andrij Harasewych was so awesome I had to break it into two parts. Part one is all about Google Plus and you'll want to hear it

I don't want to use the office tech for my private use and with the high data costs in South Africa I cannot really afford to connect my laptop via my mobile phone/tablet's tethering.

I think the G+ Android app experienced a grand upgrade evolution since 2 years ago.

But I do believe you that the pc Windows/iOS/Linux environments still offer a lot more.

  • Villanova University
    Mechanical Engineering, 2003 - 2007
    Additional Courses Taken: Leadership in Non-Profit Organizations, Marketing Research, Buyer Behavior, Professional Selling
Marketing Strategist, Lover of Science
Well, Hello there fellow Googs!

My name is Andrij "Andrew" Harasewych <- LinkedIn Profile!
Please note - though I describe myself as a marketer, this is still my personal profile, and prefer to treat it as such. From time to time I may share something from my business or from a friend or colleague - but for the most part, this is pretty much a stream of consciousness. This is what's going on in my life. What I'm working on, watching, listening, commenting on, etc etc. Follow at your own risk! :) 

Anyway - back to the profile!

I currently live in Philadelphia, PA (near the Art Museum) and am married to the love of my life, Joanna Guastavino Harasewych whom I met ten years ago as a freshman at Drexel (before transferring to Villanova).

Although I ended up graduating from Villanova University with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, a side passion of mine for the past decade has been business and marketing. After three years of working full time as a mechanical engineer, and part time as a freelancer, success in my freelance work motivated me to alter my path and focus fully on developing my business, Socialize Me, which, as it turns out, means focusing on other people's businesses. 

Available to speak at your business or conference on Google+ and Social Media for business. In addition to helping clients reach their goals online, I also do consulting and professional speaking about Google+ at your business, at your online conferences, and even at offline conferences and retreats! Contact me through this profile or through my website.

I can't really describe all of my Google+ activity in just a few paragraphs, but I'll try. Here is a list of the topics I post about, those in bold most frequently: Social Media, News, Science, Progressive Politics, Humor, Engineering, PS3/PC Gaming, Current Events, Tech News, TV & Movies (Breaking Bad, Doctor Who, Walking Dead, just to name a few) and more.

My Google+ Creds: 

Please note that my activities on my pages and in the communities I manage are more representative of my professional interests, while my personal profile does stray towards humor and personal life.

Want to get the most out of Google+? Here are some of my free Google+ Guides:

Social Media Strategy (Founder, Moderator) - This 135,000+ member community is the first social media Community on Google+ and the largest of it's kind.

Social Media Professionals (Owner, Moderator) - An over 40,000 strong community dedicated to beneficial social media, and other digital media, conversation for and by professionals (or those who have professional interest in emerging tech for marketing). This is the sister Community to Social Media Strategy.
