Senator Elizabeth Warren, at Netroots Nation:

We have to talk about what does it mean to be a progressive, an American.

We believe Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we’re willing to fight for it.

We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth, and we’re willing to fight for it.

We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality, and we will fight for it.
...and more...

Great photo from Holy Cross Monastery!
 
The collect for September 14, Holy Cross Day:

Almighty God, whose Son our Savior Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the cross that he might draw the whole world to himself: Mercifully grant that we, who glory in the mystery of our redemption, may have grace to take up our cross and follow him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

Google Plus Ghost Town? My Open Letter to The Misguided Reporters

Know what the common theme is between all these “ghost town posts”? No interviews. No named sources. Lots of reporters who never used it. A quick search usually shows that the reporter has not used Google+ themselves. Likely to not even post the article they just wrote about the platform. In fact most have less than 20 people circled and more often than not... have never even posted. Awesome. Good Reporters generally go out and interview people who are involved with something before they write a story, if they themselves don’t have first hand experience. This is fringe opinion piece media. Yet tons of these garbage articles keep getting posted on major tech publications presenting like its the facts.

I figured it was time I wrote a letter to these reporters. Please media… realize that I have tried to reach out and talk to many of you, do interviews, and help you get these points, but too many times you tell me “your company doesn’t care about writing about the positive sides of Google+” or that “other stories are more important than G+ success”. Yet whenever anything could possibly be seen as negative about G+, all of your websites light up with a million ghost town posts. It’s time the users of G+ spoke out…  I’ll start. Here are my thoughts for you.

Dear Reporters Who Can’t Be Bothered To Learn About Google+ Before Writing Your Ridiculous Articles About It;

I know this is going to be hard for some of you. You have been a good tech writer, involved in social media probably for awhile, and spent time building up your Facebook account and Twitter profile. When Google+ came along, many of your company Tech websites had already done things like integrate Facebook comments or sometimes heck, even invest in Facebook themselves! You certainly didn’t have time to get involved in another social network, and come on.. “Google has never got social”. Your mom isn’t there. Google+ is obviously a ghost town.  Right?

Wrong.

Read the whole thing here:

http://www.amandablain.com/google-plus-ghost-town/

And please share this one Far and wide, on every social network you have. Yeah. I'm asking.

#MyGooglePlusStory #GooglePlus   #VicGundotra   #socialmedia  
It's that time again. Google Plus Ghost Town from the media and reporters. This round is brought to you because Vic Gundotra the guy behind the Google plus project, announced today that he would be leaving Google. Vic is a great guy and im sure ...

G+ nicely fits the way I interact with family, friends, colleagues IRL; FB does not. End of discussion.

Facebook and LinkedIn both creep me out! #fbcreepsmeout
 
Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson had been in talks to bring a version of the game to Oculus. However, when news broke of Facebook purchasing Oculus VR, Persson cancelled the deal, saying "Facebook creeps me out." 
'Minecraft' creator Markus "Notch" Persson said he has no interest in developing his game for the Oculus Rift after Facebook acquired the headset.

Yes... Emotional attachment is key!
 
An open letter to Google with perspectives about building a broader love for G+.
 Recently, for the first time in my career, I was turned down for a job I badly wanted. The aim of the position was to elevate awareness, thought leadership, and adoption for Google+. Alas, Google+...

Agreed, particularly when paired with discretion concerning those with whom you share your emotional "stuff"...

Another article on how and how not  to welcome people to your church!
 
Churches spend a lot of time on the big things. The choir rehearses for hours, and the pastor spends the better part of a week crafting a sermon.

But there is more to being a church than a glorious anthem and prophetic preaching.

There are also the small details. Like lights that burn brightly. And signs that make sense. And greeters who greet.

What changes would we make if colleagues visited regularly and gave us feedback? What would we see if we walked around and through our churches as though for the first time?

When’s the last time you checked? Are all the lights working in your sanctuary?

Lively, deep, and relevant worship with a community of people who gather together to support each other in their journey with Christ. A true cross-generational congregation who are involved in meaningful work, play, study, and thought about being a Christian in this world. Our Sunday services are marked by a four-fold dance, we gather the people, tell the stories, break the bread, and then scatter to serve God in the world. Our liturgy is based on the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, and is both ancient and modern. We are led by the Reverend Mark A. Giroux as rector, with the Reverend Dorothy Pierce as our deacon. Sunday services are at 8:00am and 10:am.
