So true. All founders really need to get out of the Silicon Valley/Startup Universe. Its so easy to get distracted with the startup media, competitions, awards etc and lose track of what really matters. 
This you can mine for gold or you can sell pickaxes thing is going meta...

As founders of young organisations, we struggle to distinguish genuine guidance and support from the distracting pizzazz of the startup industry, where we’re just the product, not the customer.

Today I learned to never use +Orbitz​ to book packages. Apparently the free cancellation policy on flights is no longer valid when you add a hotel to the reservation. Not only that, the hotel also becomes non refundable.

Very slimy move +Orbitz​, You just lost a loyal customer.

Update I managed to get a one time refund from +Orbitz after talking to a supervisor. But I will no longer book anything as a package.

Thanks everyone for your feedback about the Google+ notifications launch yesterday. We’ve realized that there were a few shortcomings in the new desktop Google+ notification tray, so we’re reverting back to the original notifications experience for now. We value your feedback and will continue to work on new ways to improve the Google+ notifications experience.
Thank you.

We know notifications are an important way for you to remain connected to the content and people you are interested in on Google+. To this end, we are adding a dedicated view of notifications to the Google+ desktop site. 

You can now browse notifications by clicking on the bell at the top right corner of the Google+ page. The new tray is a simple list that allows you to quickly scan all notifications and view the relevant content with a single click.

Looking for just your unread notifications? Just click on the filter on top and select “Unread notifications”.

This feature will roll out to all users soon. As usual, do send us feedback.

"Its not the start or the end but its the things you do in the middle that count." Beautiful answer by +Chris Hadfield to a 5 year old's question.

An upset 5 year loses sleep worrying that the Voyager space probe might be lonely, Chris Hadfield talks to him about it and I got misty-eyed.

This is a really cool set of ads. Good job Orkin.
Saw the intro to one of the spots in this playlist as part of a YouTube pre-roll ad. This is probably one of the few times I've ever let a skippable ad keep running past the skip point, much less click on it to access the direct play page. This is a very clever series of spots.
