Day 5 of the 30-Day Communities Challenge

Happy New Years! I was in transit most of the today, visiting some friends in Vancouver, so I wasn't Google+ing. I did run across this insane Christmas light display in Port Coquitlam, BC, though, and tried out a panoramic shot on my Nexus 4. I hope it conveys the raw insanity of this display.

A few quick thoughts:

- Community owners would really like the ability to move posts to different categories. That would make us very happy.

- I would think very long and hard about creating a community based on a brand. If a real brand owner comes along and wants to set up a community, Google could easily push the majority of the traffic to this "official" community. Better to stick to generic topics, like... space.

- It's still kind of blowing my mind that Space is the most popular community on G+. More popular than Star Wars or One Direction? http://www.circlecount.com/communities/ There's hope for humanity after all.

For the next 30 days I'll be posting the majority of the time into Google+ Communities. Join me. Give it a try. http://goo.gl/93vIq
Insane Christmas Lights in Port Coquitlam, BC

I've never seen a Christmas display as densely lit as this. Every single square foot of space on the house and front yard was lit.

This was a cool chance to experiment with the panoramic mode for my Nexus 4.
