Introductions all around...  - 
 
Hi there. I'm a knitter and needing more ways to get my knit on. ;)

I've been knitting since I was little. I have 2 suitcases and 2 boxes of yarn that I have lugged around with me between 3 moves in the last 4 years.

Currently I'm knitting a cardigan and a scarf and very excited to have a fireplace to knit in front of.

Posting for colleagues at Microsoft Research:
Opportunity to participate in interview study!

If you’ve migrated from Google Docs to Google Drive in order to use the features unique to Google Drive (local client, offline access, etc.) some researchers would like to set up an interview to learn about your use practices. The interview would be about 40 minutes and would be conducted over video chat or the phone, and will include a gift card gratuity. +John Tang and his intern +Jed Brubaker are conducting this study of cloud sharing services and are looking for this particular kind of participant.
 
If you've migrated from Google Docs to Google Drive (or know someone who has!) please contact Jed at t-jebru@microsoft.com.

I'd still rather hangout with the Muppets.

Another Hangouts commercial!

The Hangouts UX is a little photoshopped in the commercial. More streamlined, skinnier, and with fluffier hair than in real life. ;)

Another fantastic commercial showcasing Google+ hangouts...

Latest Think Quarterly is out. +David Huffaker and I have an article in there about social games and marketing campaigns. Enjoy! http://www.thinkwithgoogle.com/quarterly/play/game-your-campaign.html
 
Think Quarterly: The Play Issue
The web gives us infinite ways to play – from games, to videos, to music. But it’s not just technology that is evolving; attitudes are changing, too. The new issue of Think Quarterly, launching today, explores the rising importance of play. Be sure to catch interviews with LEGO, Disney and Crayola, the latest research on social gaming, and hip-hop star Pharrell Williams’ top ten things to play.

Excellent, we are supporting romance with Hangouts!

I hope they hit it off and have good memories.

The World's Greatest Hangout Date

So one of the most amazing women on G+ has agreed to have a hangout date with me. I need your help to make it epic. Cause that's how I roll :-)

I'm thinking wine and canapés. Dressed to the 9s of course. But we need some entertainment. Perhaps one of our G+ superstars will come in and serenade us for a song or two? +Daria Musk +Ryan Van Sickle +Snoop Dogg I'm looking at you

Also, have we got anyone who can do any acts? Juggle, fire twirling, or some such? Also, perhaps someone can code me a gift for her? ( +Mohamed Mansour) Or photoshop one?

Any other suggestions for a hangout date? What would you want on your hangout date???

A visual refresh for Google+ Hangouts

When we launched Hangouts with Extras last September, we wanted to test new features and get feedback from users. We’ve learned a lot over the past few months, and today we’re rolling out a new Hangouts look and feel that incorporates some of the “extras,” and better reflects Google’s overall design (http://goo.gl/gG1NA). Highlights include:

- Screensharing: share what’s on your computer screen with everyone in the hangout. This is the first of many extras we’re graduating to Hangouts proper.

- Bigger video: we’ve put more emphasis on the live video itself by optimizing white space and other screen elements.

Check out the attached photos to preview some of the changes, and have fun hanging out!
