Rumors are leaking that Google might kill Google+. Sound crazy? At first, I thought the same. But as you think how devolution might work, there could be some big advantages to breaking up Google+ into individual components, in a way that Facebook is already doing to itself.
  News is leaking out that Google might be planning to kill Google+, or at least put it into a Walking Dead-like “zombie” mode, as TechCrunch characterizes it — and something Google denies. There are some good reasons for Google to do this, and potentially, it could allow Google to better fight on the new […]

First I watched +Vic Gundotra help energize Google in mobile, then he helps the company do what seemed an impossible task of having a viable social challenger and effort. All the best.
 
And Then

Last month, my wife's uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary "How are you" or "What's going on", her dad always opened the conversation with "And then?" Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more "and thens". I cried. 

Since then I've thought a lot about how similar this is to our life's endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become "and thens" as we move on to the next. 

Today I'm announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don't believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I'm overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry's encouragement and support.

I'm also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn't tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I've met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don't even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn't exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An "and then". I am excited about what's next. But this isn't the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then....
+Vic Gundotra

From the announcement, “If you see a clock icon in the upper left-hand portion of a Street View image, click on it and move the slider through time and […]

+Danny Sullivan I am surprised at how little traction this post got overall. For me, this is a very exciting addition to what #WearableComputing  could have at it's disposal on the street. The bad news is that the Google Maps API is so expensive there is no way I could add this to a app myself..

Founding Editor, Marketing Land & Search Engine Land, covering Google, Facebook, Twitter, SEO, SEM & all things digital marketing, search marketing and search.
Introduction
Widely considered a leading "search engine guru," Danny Sullivan has been helping webmasters, marketers and everyday web users understand how search engines work for over a decade.

Danny's expertise about search engines is often sought by the media, and he has been quoted in places like The Wall St. Journal, USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, Forbes, The New Yorker and Newsweek and ABC's Nightline.

Danny began covering search engines in late 1995, when he undertook a study of how they indexed web pages. The results were published online as "A Webmaster's Guide To Search Engines," a pioneering effort to answer the many questions site designers and Internet publicists had about search engines.

Danny currently works as the founding editor of Search Engine Land and Marketing Land, which cover all aspects of digital marketing, search marketing and search engine news. Danny also serves as chief content officer of Third Door Media, which owns Search Engine Land, Marketing Land, Digital Marketing Depot and the SMX: Search Marketing Expo conference series. Danny also maintains a personal blog called Daggle and writes CNET's Common Sense Tech column.

Great tacos and more. Enough said. This is the original that gave birth to other Chronics around Southern California. Pick whatever you want, it'll be great. I go for the fatty tacos or the tostada bowls myself. The store is very small; no seats, and if it's busy, you'll be standing in line for up to 15 minutes to get your food. But the staff will be friendly while you wait, and you'll enjoy what you get.

I ended up here almost by accident in September 2010. There was a big event at Jericho, where we thought we could pick up guns for our group of newbies, which included me. No such luck. But we saw the sign for No Limits and figured it was a close enough drive. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. They gave us plenty of time, talked through the different options, and we left with guns that have continued to do us fine. No problems, no fails, they're holding up great. I realized that we'd left the rail for one of the guns behind about a week later. I called, and they sent it to us no problem, covering the postage on their end. In April, we were in the area so I headed back to get a pistol. Same thing: really helpful staff. About the only downside is that if the shop is busy, you might have a wait. But compared to my nightmare experience with doing mail order through Airsplat (gun doesn't work, sent back, still doesn't work, sigh), it was nice feeling like here was a place that was going to ensure I had solid equipment. And I do.
