Yes, thank you very much to all of you who voted in the fall. You helped get our panels on Millennials in the workplace selected for SXSW. Fun and informative to read all the tweets!

Great mind map from +Christopher Penn about How to Market Your Podcast. But don't let the title fool you - it really can be used for almost any media.

What if you could live forever? Would you want to? If yes, go see Ray Kurzweil speak LIVE next Wed Aug 3 with Deepak Chopra, Steve Wozniak, Al Gore, Bill Maher, and Elon Musk. Will be broadcast in theaters across the country.

Here's my recommendation if you're looking to do something besides G+ tonight. Go watch this Kurzweil / Singularity documentary. Technology will accelerate exponentially. Within 25 years, computers will have consciousness. Humans will soon be bionic. These predictions make bestselling author Ray Kurzweil (The Singularity Is Near) a prophetic genius to some, and a "highly sophisticated crackpot" to others. You can rent online via Amazon. http://amzn.to/pzHKkt It's also on Netflix, search "Trancsendent Man"

G+ General Help  - 
 
I'm trying to create my custom G+ URL and it's asking me to "Add a few extra letters or numbers to this URL to get one that is unique for your page."  But I don't want to do this. I want the URL that is displayed and I want it without adding extra letters or numbers. I would understand if someone else already had claimed the URL I want, but they haven't. There is no other user using the custom URL presented.  Google, please help - this really isn't right. Please fix!!!

+Kevin McMinn oh yes, there was a moment of 'do I, don't I' before I clicked - but with a common name like Dennis Brown, my theory was that if I come back later it'll probably be + DennisBrown230234235423 - or similar ;)

Interesting article from NYT about decision fatigue. Turns out there is a finite store of mental energy for exerting self-control which impacts our decision making ability. It's important to know when not to trust our decisions. http://nyti.ms/o4lcaY
The very act of making decisions depletes our ability to make them well. So how do we navigate a world of endless choice?
