Honored to have attended this historic event. #OpportunityForAll  
“We’ve got an obligation to make sure that the country we love remains a place where no matter who you are, or what you look like, or where you come from, or how you started out, or what your last name is, or who you love—no matter what, you can make it.” —President Obama on signing an Executive Order protecting #LGBT employees from workplace discrimination: #WorkplaceEquality

Whew! Thank god the royal baby has been birthed! 1. Kate probably won't be beheaded. 2. They didn't have to wake the queen!

A sort of sinking feeling among the media gathered in London as the realization dawns that this could well go on into tomorrow.

Of course, no-one can be told till the Queen is told, and the Queen has made it abundantly clear she does not wish to be woken in the middle of the night to be told, "IT'S A BOY / GIRL".

So,  if the baby is not born before midnight, the hour at which the Queen usually retires for bed, then we ink-stained wretches will be hanging on our emails till tomorrow morning. The Queen is woken at 9am by her piper, but she may rise earlier tomorrow!

The thing I love most about this is that it clearly frames social as more than just comms. It's about
Not many people know that, but IBM is probably one of the most knowledgeable companies when it comes to social media. They started exploring social technology back in 1970 when their mainframe programmers used discussion forums on the System 370 consoles.

When I watched "Reaching Key Decision Makers Through Social Networks" by +GlobalWebIndex  (kindly shared by +Denis Labelle ), I got curious to learn more about what +Sandy Carter of IBM had to offer in this relatively short video. Namely, a *2012 CEO Study" with over 1700 CEOs in 64 countries that uncovers importance of social media in their future planning and decision making. 

What do CEOs have to say about social media, hyper-connected world and other media when it comes to conversations with clients, prospects and employees? Apparently, the CEOs in this study revealed themselves as very progressive people willing to accept technology in the life of their companies. I am surprised to see this kind of dynamism! And thank you IBM people for this goldmine of social media knowledge that I uncovered through this study and some additional searches :-)

Here you can see the full 61-page study: and I had the infographic pinned here:

OK. The new G+ auto-hashtagging is, frankly, brilliant. Great addition of metadata without the user having to think about it. 

Nice one, +Chris Messina :)

Curious about the code behind the new Google+. Responsive, but not in the usual way. The whole page reloads as it senses a new viewport size. Pretty cool.

oh man -- no, I had no idea that happened. it's definitely not a practice we try to adopt here :-/ it's really a death by a thousand cuts i think -- in the interest of getting something cool out you make a concession here or there, and you end up missing something major. in any case, the next few weeks for us are going to be devoted to those things we missed -- i'm really hoping your experience will improve! if not, keep letting us know (but give us a little time to try first :))
