Google geeks: What's the quickest way to get to the Google Dashboard from any Google page? (i.e. this page: https://www.google.com/dashboard/) Quickest I can find: Privacy link in the footer (won't work on G+ or Reader), click "Privacy Tools" in the nav, then "Google Dashboard."

Quick poll for all my Google+ peeps:

1. Did you know that your whole Google search history and YouTube video history is online and searchable here?

Three facts about Louis C.K. I learned today:

1. He had a show on HBO in 2006 called "Lucky Louie," which only lasted one season. It was set up like a standard sitcom and taped in front of a live audience, but was extremely obscene. It's very funny.

2. He grew up in Mexico City, spoke Spanish as his first language, and retains his Mexican citizenship.

3. He wrote and directed Pootie Tang. Yes, really.

Very strange, Google+ indirectly got me blogging again. I started to write an anecdote about Meat Cheese Bread on Saturday on Google+, but realized that was a bit silly. There wasn't anything private about it, and it was too long to make sense here, so I decided to flesh it out into a post about opinionated software design: http://waxy.org/2011/07/meat_cheese_bread/

Same thing for this riff on Marco Arment's Monopoly post I just put up, discussing the dirty origins of the board game: http://waxy.org/2011/07/theres_no_wrong_way_to_play_monopoly/

I forgot how much I miss shorter blogging. At some point, I started putting pressure on myself that my main blog posts needed to be deep, investigative pieces. Lifting that pressure is a huge relief.

Having a strange issue with the Google+ Search API. Any Googlers out there able to help, or anyone able to confirm? http://waxy.org/2012/05/google_search_api_weirdness/

I agree that the current behavior definitely limits the utility of the API.  I can't promise anything, but I'll keep exploring internally to try and improve this.

I'll be on this call at 9am PST tomorrow, if you're interested in the near future of ThinkUp!
Randy Resnick originally shared:
 
Thinkup RC 1.0, Google Plus Plugin for Thinkup and more
Unlike some things in life, you have a say in what happens with Thinkup and you can be heard by (or just listen to) the developers including +Andy Baio and the amazing +Gina Trapani who created Thinkup all those date('U') ago!

It happens once a month when the moon is properly aligned, and that happens to be tomorrow, Wednesday at 12 Noon Eastern USA, 9AM Pacific Time. On the site below are the magic incantations to become one with the Thinkup community:


Skype: Dial +990009369991481492 (it's free call - but wait until the conference is on or you'll be lectured by a bot to call again later)

SIP:031431@login.zipdx.com– You can use SIP clients like Blink, X-Lite, Jitsi but again, only when the conference is active.
Talk on IRC anytime at #thinkup on Freenode.net

Spread the word!

I thought Heello was just a Twitter clone, but it's quickly evolving into a parallel-universe version of Twitter, with alternate-reality versions of @ev, @cnnbrk, and more. http://waxy.org/2011/08/helloo_is_twitter_for_fakesters/
