Heads up! Lots of Gmail Account info was collected and published.  If you update your password annually and don't use a different one on each site, odds are you are fine.  Otherwise, change your password it's been leaked.  I recommend you use 2-Step verification for gmail. https://www.google.com/landing/2step/  It's really easy to setup.
Yes, you have to change your password again.

Net Neutrality explained.  aka,  how the cable companies are trying to abuse us all.  Stay tuned to the end to find out how you can fire back.
 
I imagine that most of you reading this are already aware of how much the cable monopolies are threatening #netneutrality , but for anyone who isn't, this clip from John Oliver lays out perfectly what's at stake, and why we're even talking about this right now.

A book published during the presidency of Chester A. Arthur has a greater chance of being in print today than one published during the time of Reagan.

Due to the number of sites affected by this SSL flaw I highly recommend we all heed the EFF's advice and install HTTPS Everywhere.  https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere

You need to take your security into your own hands. Do not wait on each and every internet site to fix this.

Thank you +Netflix.
 
Netflix is finally rolling out individual profiles, so your recommendations won't get mixed up with everyone else (spouses, kids, neighbors, dogs, etc.) that shares your account

Haven't tried it yet, but looks promising.
 
My son's killer startup!

I'm really happy to be talking about this -- finally!

My son, +Kevin Elgan, has been working at a really cool Silicon Valley startup for about a year. They've been in "stealth mode," so he's banned me from blogging about it. 

Well, their official public launch is today at 7am Pacific (as in right now), so finally I get to tell you about it!

The company is Tynker ( http://www.Tynker.com ), and their mission is awesome. They want to make software programming a standard part of the curriculum for children in elementary and middle schools.

Tynker's software enables kids to build games and animated stories using something like electronic LEGO -- building blocks of environments, objects and actions that kids have fun playing and creating with. It all happens in the cloud. Once kids build projects, they can share them with friends to be played on Android phones, iPhones, laptops, Chromebooks -- whatever. 

But while the kids are playing, they're actually learning programming skills, critical thinking and gaining a foundation for science and engineering education. 

Tynker has been running pilot programs at over 20 schools, and apparently the kids are building some amazing things. 

Teachers are apparently loving Tynker because it's a comprehensive, turn-key package of software, instruction and everything they need to teach these critical skills. Plus, it's easy for them to teach because the kids love using it. 

The company was founded by the same geniuses who created Plusmo a few years back (which they sold to AT&T). 

Anyway, you're going to be hearing a LOT about Tynker, but wanted you to hear it first from me. : )

Great place for Cajun lunch. They are setup for speedy service with a relaxed atmosphere. On nice days they open the front wall via a good ole garage door opener. I've had about half the bowls on the menu and haven't found a bad one yet. If you have room be sure to try the bread pudding it's delicious.

The service department took 6 hours to change oil and spark plugs. Had to return after picking up son from school, to have them reconnect some of the plugs. So after paying for the "expert" service, still had to return for a failed process and non-existant quality check. After this was understood the service tech and manager refused to come out and explain or apologize, instead they sent the clerk. Submitted emails, and filled out the same information on the survey they sent, with no action taken. Explained again after they called last week to schedule appointment for oil change. Still zero action. Bottom line, it is apparent to me they don't care about my vehicle, my safety, my time, or their reputation.
