I've been part of Google+ since a month or so into the Beta, those heady days when it was all new and exciting. With the massive redesign currently under way by the dedicated team at Google everything is becoming new again, bit by bit. It’s a big job but one that will hopefully lead to bigger and better things. Nothing worth doing is ever easy they say. :-)
As G+ shifts to a #Communities and #Collections environment, posting publicly seems to be getting a little lost in the stream, so I've decided to reshape how I do things in here. I've met so many great people (you know who you are) and had so many great conversations in comments sections that to not try to retain that in the new Plus would be almost a crime.
So I'm going to pin this to my profile as a signpost to how to find me, my collections, and communities, and I hope you’ll drop by for a chat! Here we go...
A Dimension Of Mind - A raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thoughts... https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/gO8nZB
This is my ‘everything’ collection. A blog-esque stream of thoughts covering movies, politics, TV, music, news, general musings, and hellos. I’ll occasionally drop in posts from my other collections just to draw everything together, do come say Hi.
An Apple A Day - Technology, married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, in style https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/ISDWx
This is my everything Apple collection, latest news, thoughts on the company’s products and direction, and anything else that springs to mind.
Ride The Wild Wind - Mind, Body, Machine As One https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/Ub3Vx
My motorcycle collection featuring new bike news, bike technology innovations, cool imagery, custom bikes, and more. It was Google+’s #FeatureFriday Collection in Jan 2016
Better Living Through Technology - Life changing technology, and cool luxuries, let’s see what tomorrow brings https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/If0Ux
Technology can better us or destroy us, I'm a glass half full kind of guy so this is a collection of tech news that’s peaked my interest in helping humanity, or is just plain cool.
Beyond This Island Earth - Behold the final frontier, and how we get there https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/8AfUx
Everything space related, cool Hubble pictures, NASA news, thoughts on our next steps, space tech, private sector battles to orbit, and more. Currently locked in orbit in G+’s ‘Featured Collections’ list.
While I'm in a few communities the one I hold dear is the one I run, The Comic Book Community everything comics, discussion, art, polls, reviews, and sneak peeks at new books from our publisher partners DC, Marvel, Valiant, IDW, Dynamite, and more. No spam, no piracy, just fun and comic book geekery. Come check it out…
And if you draw, either professionally or just starting out there’s The CBC’s sister community, The CBC Artists' Alley with drawing challenges, tips, critique, discussion on all aspects of comics art and more. You’ll find it here… https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/117897611016027670779
It’s an all-new sort of different G+, let’s keep having fun :-)
