Went to Nashville to speak to Jack White about vinyl, style and his new career as solo artist.

I haven't used Google+ in weeks (feels like months). Is it just me, or did Google miss the boat by making it impossible for media outlets to create 'official' accounts. I remember everyone in the office being very excited about this, creating all kinds of circles, talking about it endlessly. And now: the last time somebody mentioned 'Google plus' I just saw eyes rolling.

I agree. People need a consistent flow of information to adopt a network. Google turned that away by limiting users to people.

I've used the new Foursquare list feature to gather all my favorite places from the reporting trail. Let me know what you think about the idea. I think it adds a little more value out of my many trips, but maybe you think differently...
