Wow - amazing April Fools game from the Google Maps team. Catch 150 Pokémon scattered around the world.

Tip: Looks like there's a ton around Google HQ in Mountain View. (Don't forget YouTube HQ either.)

Just found the promo video too: http://youtu.be/4YMD6xELI_k

"A power outage caused by a squirrel threw a wrench in Caltrain’s dispatching network Wednesday morning"

+Dave Besbris, thought you might appreciate that a squirrel extended my (and others') commute(s) by an hour this morning.
Caltrain was one of several Bay Area rail transit systems plagued by system delays Wednesday morning.

I think a few community mods will be excited about this one!

Pinned posts are useful for more than just announcements - they also make it easier to establish the norms of a community, by demonstrating what a "good" post looks like.

#NoLongerAtGoogleButStillCheeringTheTeamOn  
 
Moderators can now pin posts in Communities

By popular demand, Community Moderators and Owners will now be able to highlight a post in their Community by pinning it to the top.  The “Pin post” option can be found on any post in your Community.  The post will then be marked as “Pinned by moderator”, and Community members will see the post at the top of their Community stream until a Moderator unpins it.   This feature is rolling out gradually over the course of the day.

Really fun new app from former Google+ PM +Chrys Bader.

Been using it - it's super entertaining (and cathartic) being able to share and read without a pesky identity!
 
Psst. We have a Secret to share. We built a place for you to speak freely with your friends.

Just cancelled my Comcast service. This feels like an accomplishment.

The air feels a little cleaner, the sun a little brighter. They can't hurt me anymore. Today is a good day.

Here's a photo I took this morning, in the heart of the Ontario ice storm.

Our electricity is out for the next 24-36 hours. Please send power and internet.
