This should solve something people have wanted for a long time on G+.
 
Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

it might, if the people posting stupid shit I don't want to see actually classify said stupid shit in a way that lets me ignore it.

Vehicle cells are improving faster than expected.
 
"  For the leading electric vehicle makers, Tesla and Nissan, costs fell by 8 percent a year. This astounding decline puts battery costs right around the level that the International Energy Agency predicted they would reach in 2020. We are six years ahead of the curve.   "
Clean energy production and power storage is getting more efficient and cheaper, closing the gap with fossil fuels.

This is awesome news. Time for +USAA​ to get onboard with +Dwolla​!
 
Today, BBVA members are able to move money at the speed of the internet, the way it should be.

But there's more. BBVA account information is tokenized. FiSync-enabled accounts are able to validate account ownership, authorize privileges, and initiate bank transfers—all without providing Dwolla bank account and routing numbers.

#bbva #dwolla #realtime  
The best way to move money. No percentages. No hidden fees. Just 25 cents per transaction or free for transactions $10 or less.

Reboot-free kernel patches? Yes, please!
 
Can't wait! (and screw you Oracle for not keeping ksplice open). Thanks Red Hat and SuSE.
Summary:With the new Linux 4.0 kernel, you'll need to reboot Linux less often than ever.

Perfect examples of why I'm a big proponent of the Oxford comma (always a controversial topic among writers, editors, and other language nerds).

I found this archived blog post pretty inspiring.  Maybe you will too.  A similar philosophy could be relevant to taking on projects of a variety of natures, if I can let go a bit of polish...

+Emlyn O'Regan Remember that conversation you started about software assistants a while back?

"Blau goes so far as to say that the "rise of data and privacy management," compounded by "the explosion of apps and services," will lead to an entirely new sort of application: personal software agents that "aggregate your data, manage it, and act on our behalf. Today, they're raising alerts; tomorrow, they're going to be negotiating deals for us. They're going to work for us--for you and me--not for the companies.""

http://www.inc.com/magazine/201407/ceo-of-wickr-leads-social-media-resistance-movement.html
For years, the internet's biggest players have hoarded your personal data and sold it for billions. Now, a band of angry startups is demanding privacy and aiming to overhaul the social-media business forever.

Why is the strawberry jam such a rare find in that stack of grape and other assorted jellies on the table at any diner?

I like it, but strawberry is the jam master race.

I've been having Internet bandwidth sags for over 24 hours with Centurylink .  I must not be the only one, since they are getting so many technical support calls they won't even take more.  Is anybody else having these issues?

Update:  The issue wasn't CenturyLink at all.  Apparently +Chromecast has a problem where it will just periodical use all your bandwidth, even when you aren't watching anything.  WTF, Chrome team?

Andrew, Centurylink had been installing fiber along my street, but no word yet when the service will be available.

Hopefully this makes managing Google+ photos better (read: at all possible).
 
Your photos, your files, together in +Google Drive. Now you can share and organize your +Google+ Photos on the Drive app or the web. http://goo.gl/23OlOj

Well put. Google Plus is awesome for sharing photos and albums, but really sucks for managing photos. I'm always wondering if I have multiple copies of photos behind the scenes eating up my quota.

I don't feed trolls. I burn them.
Introduction
I love disruptive technology, not just what's hot, but that which is truly revolutionary.  That is left intentionally broad-brushed.  Technology should make our jobs easier, our efforts more effective, and give us more time to enjoy life.  So I post publicly about technology, privacy, and the occasional red herring.

I work with storage, mobile, and "cloud", and tend not to dwell on one thing too much when something better comes along.
Bragging rights
I can walk talk and chew gum, but not text and drive.

The free move-in truck rental is very nice to have, but can be a little difficult to schedule. Melissa was very helpful resolving truck scheduling.

This clinic has welcoming offices and friendly, helpful staff. We generally get right into a room for appointments, and their pediatrics staff is amazing.

I have always been very satisfied with my service at Luther Hopkins Honda, and my latest visit is no exception. They do good work, they're friendly, and don't push unnecessary services.

Every time I have used or attempted to use their online service to send money, it is at least a 30-60 minute ordeal or not being to log in with the password I know is correct, resetting the password and the new password still not allowing me to login, finally getting through to the point where you submit a transfer, and being kicked back to the login prompt. If you want to have an extremly maddening experience, by all means, use Moneygram. Moneygram should just remove their horrendous attempt at an online service. They mujst make all oftheir money from phone and in-store transfers, because they seem to do everything in their power to prevent you from actually sending money onilne.

The veterinarians and technicians at CVVC are awesome. They clearly love animals, love what they do, and provide the best care.
