Some new math gets at how we innovate - try this thought experiment of picking marbles out of ‘Polya’s Urn’

The work could lead to a new approach to the study of what is possible, and how it follows from what already exists.

Some of you might rightly recognize that items on this list were present in Google+ Classic but were added to the new Web preview over the past fourteen months. Why? We completely re-wrote the Google+ Web app from scratch. Rather than rebuild every nook and cranny that developed over the five year history of Google+, we started with a clean slate of the features people used the most (based on our data & research). We then released this preview version to collect feedback and find out what people missed the most of what we left out.

Not every feature/setting has returned but we have been continuously listening and making updates (as seen above). And we’ll continue doing so. To make your voice heard, please send us your ideas/issues using the Send Feedback menu item. Thanks~

Visit 2: Great service but sadly, good people of St David's Hotel, you are not listening to feedback. You are not acting like a 5 star hotel, and Google ratings are affecting that (now just over 4 stars. We are sliders and chicken wings as a snack on Boxing Day, and they wings were tasteless. Having lived in the US my standards and expectations of such culinary delights may be high, but I would expect better from you. Looking forward to your response and moving you back up to a 5 star rating in time. Visit 1: Perfect place for a beverage by the water. (5 stars)
