I was surprised when they paid their government loan in full early. That is really great.

Really excited to announce our partnership with +NASCAR for a new racing division based on our self driving cars! This is a big deal and we even have it linked from our home page!

Paul Allen is a great person to follow, below are some helpful getting started tips he recently shared.
 
Welcome new Google+ users!

Experienced +ers, please share this to help out the newbies!

■ A wonderful Startup Guide to Google+ by +Saidur Hossain that has already been translated into 31 languages. This consists of 49 photos/slides that describe how to use the service. It has been shared more than 10,000 times on Google+. *http://bit.ly/oi7mFu*

Google Plus 101: How to Get Started (good blog post for beginngers by Rana Shahbaz): *http://bit.ly/q8awN0*

The Google+ Guide created collaboratively by users in Google Docs: *http://bit.ly/oTyxaq*

Millions of new users will be joining Google+ in the coming days. The doors are finally open. Google's home page invites everyone (over age 18) to try this service out. But for a new user, whether you have a "best thing since sliced bread" experience or a "ghost town" experience, depends on learning a few simple things and applying them.

Early Google+ users remember how fun it was to discover new features, shortcuts, and tips, and share them with each other. At one point, 120 users collaborated and compiled a Google doc that contained the best tips. There is a link to it below.

Here are some additional resources that about getting started on Google+. Some of them may be slightly out of date because Google+ is evolving and improving so quickly, but I've just reviewed them all to make sure they are still valuable - and they are. Hope they are helpful to you and all your new friends here.

■ The Complete Google+ Cheat Sheet: http://bit.ly/nKZABx

■ Smaller Cheatsheet for navigation and editing: http://on.mash.to/ppEyi5

■ Mashable's Complete Guide to Google+ (July 16): http://on.mash.to/omVWlV

+Craig Kanalley's 15 Tips for Newbies (July 13): http://huff.to/qorPyx

+Keith Barrett 10 Tips for Public Hangouts (Sept. 3): http://bit.ly/nu1Uv8

And finally, here is a run-down by Geek.com of the major updates that Google+ made to its hangouts yesterday: http://bit.ly/pKvP6H

More links to additional resources are provided by +Johnathan Chung at http://bit.ly/reF3GP.

Finally, if you try Google+ and feel skeptical at first, please follow +Tom Anderson who has the best posts nearly every day here on Google+, and also read this excellent article that he wrote for TheNextWeb entitled "How Google+ will succeed and why you'll use it whether you want to or not." http://tnw.co/nn7Uwn (Tom founded MySpace and as guru +Robert Scoble says, "he gets social at a level even I can't approach.")

Google+ is here to stay. It will be a permanent social layer on top of Google's other web properties which are already used by one billion people each month.

By investing a little time and effort to set up and organize your circles and to install Google+ apps on your smart phone, you will soon find that Google+ empowers you to personalize your stream and your sharing like never before.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Please add a comment below if I'm missing a very helpful resource for beginners.

Decent hotel. Cable was out when we visited. Host said they were working to fix it and would follow up. Cable wasn't fixed in the two nights we stayed and never followed up.
