Stop freaking out about Joffrey, people. It's in a book.

Actually, there are lots of books in this series, which you will eventually stop reading. So go ahead and watch the show.

+Bryana I Seasons 5 and 6 cover books 4 and 5 respectfully.  Martin has given the HBO show's writers an overview of the contents of Books 6 and 7, so perhaps they can keep going.  At least the show has content until 2016.

Let's shoot for 19! Go, Spurs, Go!
The Spurs haven't just been winning, they've dominated to the extent that they're leading the league in 16 different categories during their 18-game unbeaten streak.

BLOG: regarding confidence, compassion, and bullies

Last year, at Denver Comicon, I answered a question from a young woman who was having a hard time at school, because kids were being cruel to her. She asked me if I was ever called a “nerd” when I was in school, and how I handled it. Here’s my answer:…

+Tesla Motors execs secretly visited San Antonio, spoke with officials about $5 billion "gigafactory."
SAN ANTONIO â€" A pair of executives from Tesla Motors Inc., the electric carmaker that's scouting a location for its planned $5 billion “gigafactory,†secretly met here Wednesday with top city and county officials, a person close to the discussion said. The meeting came less than a week after the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation submitted a proposal to the Palo Alto, Calif.-based manufacturer for the factory, which will produce l...

Nice.
Google Calendar is a wonderful tool. While many people may know that you can import pre-made calendars with lists of various holidays in them, there's a ton more cool stuff you can do with the service that's either baked right in, or possible with simple scripts and IFTTT recipes.

The Senate just passed the DATA Act unanimously! It's a big step forward for transparency and #opendata, which will lead to more accurate and timely info on federal spending.

Taking recycling to a whole new level.
Or, they meant it, at least. [...] late Tuesday afternoon, the city appeared to not be shy about offering a way to recycle any product, no matter how embarrassing. A San Antonian surfing the city's website for recycle drop-off locations and programs could easily find a mail-in program to recycle their “adult toys.†Tiffany Edmonds, public relations manager for the city's Solid Waste Management, said she was surprised to see the mail-in pro...

Several people have been asking me about the new "view count" number which shows up on your profile, and I've been answering on a bunch of threads, so let me give you the key answers in one place.

What does this number count? This is total views on your profile, your posts, your photos, and your videos. 

What constitutes a "view?" For your profile, when someone goes to view your profile page. For other things, it's when they look at it -- e.g., when one of your posts shows up on someone's screen. (That's because this is how most people read posts: showing up in a stream, without clicking on it explicitly) Looking at your hovercard doesn't count.

Is this related to +1's, reshares, etc.? Only in that someone who +1'ed your post also probably saw it. You can already see counts for those on individual posts, etc., and before today you could see view counts for each photo if you looked carefully at the one-up view -- now you can see that for everything.

If someone reshares my post, does that count? Yes, since a viewer is seeing your content. Ditto if someone sees your post through an "Alice +1'ed this," through a post embedded on a page, or any other way that someone encounters it.

I don't want to show this on my profile! You can hide this by going to your settings page. Go to plus.google.com/settings and look for "Show how many times your profile and content have been viewed."

This seems strange: Some people seem to have a lot more views relative to their number of followers than others. Is something broken? Not at all. Some people have a lot of followers but don't engage with them well, while other people engage amazingly with a smaller group. 

I want to find out more. Check out the Help Center article at http://goo.gl/8BjroH .

Great reporting about the efforts of the two largest cell-phone companies to win coveted wireless frequencies and outmaneuver the little guys:

"Mobile Future is just one thread in the massive influence web being deployed by AT&T and Verizon as they fight proposals advocated by their smaller competitors and the Justice Department to limit how much of the new wireless frequencies they’ll be allowed to bid on at the auction that’s scheduled for next year."
A rare auction of wireless spectrum may determine who controls your cell phone.
