"Ben Morfitt wrote a symphonic piece, performed all the parts, and composited it all together into this Orchestra of Ben Morfitts."

"I've never tried conducting before, so I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing, I just watched a load of videos of conductors and tried to do something similar to them," he says.

What do you all think of the new feature so far? I've been testing it out over the last month and so far I've found it really useful! See my first collection here: https://plus.google.com/u/1/collection/4SSsR :)
 
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.

30 Days of Web Dev >> Day 29: Better Pomodoro Timer
http://learningnerd.github.io/30DaysOfWebDev/day29/

I learned how to add sound effects! And fixed some bugs. Still getting used to JavaScript's quirks, but definitely better at it now than when I started. :) But I might miss today's daily goal!!! I'm so wiped out, I want to just eat dinner and pass out for the night. Eh, so we'll see if I make one last push before April is over...

30 Days of Web Dev >> Day 27: Countdown Timer
http://learningnerd.github.io/30DaysOfWebDev/day27/

I can't seem to stay away from JavaScript! Today I made a little timer inspired by the pomodoro technique. Hurrah! I also learned that I'm terrible with time-related programming logic. It was strangely difficult to wrap my mind around the simple math I needed to do with elapsed time and remaining time. Durrrr. But I figured it out. :)

30 Days of Web Dev >> Day 25: Using Jekyll
http://learningnerd.github.io/30DaysOfWebDev/day25/

Today I finally figured out how to install and use Jekyll, a static site generator! It doesn't play so nicely with Windows, so I did bang my head on my desk a few times. But now it works!

There's still much more I could work on with this, but now I'm finally going to call it finished. At least for now. I have lots of web design stuff to learn if I want to start finding people to pay me to make websites for them!

The Octobass: 12-foot instrument of awesomeness!

"The 12-foot tall Octobass plays so low, it's lowest string when played fully open is barely in the human hearing registry. To play it, a musician must stand on a stool and use leavers to fret the notes. It resides at the new Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, and is the only one in North America."

New project: a daily blog about what I'm learning! See it here: http://learningnerd.github.io/ :)

Off to a slow start for this next 30 day challenge, but I'll gain some momentum. See last month's challenge here: http://learningnerd.github.io/30DaysOfWebDev/

30 Days of Web Dev >> Day 28: Local Web Storage
http://learningnerd.github.io/30DaysOfWebDev/day28/

Today I learned how to use local web storage with HTML5 and JavaScript's beforeunload event to make my timer work even if you close and reopen your web browser! Unfortunately, it's still buggy because I didn't have much free time outside of work today. :(

Introduction
Hiyas! I'm about 0.04% done with my goal to learn everything there is to learn. Almost there! =P


Some of my current interests (meaning you can send me links on these topics and I'd go "eeee!"):

~~~~~~~~~~  Computer science / Programming  ~~~~~~~~~

Web development, Android development, creating productivity tools, body computing, G+ hangouts API

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Education  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Free learning resources, social learning / education 2.0 / other buzzwords, educational video games, STEM education, all sorts of alternative education (homeschooling, unschooling), autodidacticism, polymathy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Art and Design 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Web design, photography, videography, video editing, graphic design, typography, making bad drawings

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Math and Science  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Right now I'm particularly interested in the fundamentals of math, how the brain understands it (numerical cognition), and how I should go about relearning it and actually liking it

To sum it up: let's exchange knowledge! :) I'm here to soak up as much as I can. Mmmm knooowwledge...

I'm also here to meet interesting people and make friends. I'll circle you if you post interesting things, especially things I can learn from! I'm also much more likely to circle you if you have some information about yourself in your profile.
