The iPad app for google+ is a huge improvement. Still not sure where google+ fits in the grand scheme of social presences... But nice to see some movement on the app for usability and taking advantage of larger screen.

It may feel like it is another one of those profiles that requires care and feeding, but I think that is something to be resolved with further iterations. Google's philosophy is to develop and integrate their technologies very much in the public space. While the gory details aren't all displayed like a traditional open source project, I think their process with their products is similar. Not having an exposed API for reading and writing is clearly the real pain point here. It will likely show up at some point in time. The future is long, as they say.

I also think that ecosystem lock-in is a paradigm that is bearing down on us like a runaway locomotive. All the thrashing going on right now is the screaming of the big iron wheels against the tracks. Apple has demonstrated in a BIG way that the closed walled garden is the the path to financial paradise, and it looks like everyone else is trying like hell to replicate that before they get run over. The severed limbs of RIM are still freshly littering the tracks. Five years ago they were on top. Today they are bouncing around on one leg claiming that "it's only a flesh wound". Let's see how fast some of the data portcullises get raised when Facebook releases mobile hardware and Microsoft launches yet another social network service.

Refactoring meetings ARE a singularity. I doubt I will be in very many more of those.

Anybody used google+ hangouts for office hours? Thinking of setting this up using one of our generic accounts -- and just being sure someone from our office is there in case people 'drop by'. With the screen sharing option - it makes sense for our office anyway!

BLACK. GOLD. ELVIS. If the King is All IN, shouldn't you be? Spend New Year's Eve watching the Commodores in Elvis's hometown (Memphis) at the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. It's a win, win.
