Great article discussing two upcoming documentaries exploring the value of knowledge, and how society views success. Hoping to catch both. I have one child with a full scholarship in sports, and one who is SO bright and innovative that is facing college debt.. cc: +Teri Conrad - check this out..what are we measuring?? 
Ivory Tower and The Internet's Own Boy ponder the market value of knowledge.

"As the social media echo chamber descends on our professional lives, never before has this message been more relevant. Instead of measuring your progress using the yardstick of external recognition, optimize around achieving your unique vision."

I really like the mis allocating ones time and attention. It's so easy to do but imperative to stay focused and not let the online presence distract you from your long term goals. Thank you for the share and have a happy new year.

A Cheat Sheet for People Afraid of Google+

You probably know them: people who trot out an excuse for not adopting Google+. I've been collecting them (the excuses, not the people).

"Oh my, what's this talk about Circles?" "I'm happy with Facebook." "Isn't that place a ghost town?" 

The reasons are legion. But all easily answered with this short guide.

1. Start simple. Create one Circle--and put everyone in it. You can segment later.
2. Starting a Hangout (also known as the skype killer) is stupid easy. Push one button. Done. 
3. You can reply to posts and comments INSIDE Gmail. 
4. You can sign in to apps and websites with your Google+ account. +Jesse Wojdylo can tell you all about it: http://goo.gl/8fsLv
5. Join an interesting Community if you want that feeling of connection quickly. However ... 
6. It's your fault if Google+ feels like a ghost town. Just ask +Chris Brogan: http://goo.gl/OLy6M 
7. You can even edit your posts. Endlessly. 
8. You can format your posts, too. Italics, bold, strikeout. Here's how: http://goo.gl/pJrXY
9. And, yes, there is no character limit. Write all day, Hemingway.  
10. Did I mention you won't get bombarded with invitations to play games or share your birthday? Yeah. That's what I thought. 

Bonus reason: all the cool kids are on Google+. That's a joke. I'm a nerd. So plus me.
