Is there any way to link multiple google+ accounts yet? Due to various businesses I work with I have multiple google app accounts, plus my Gmail account all with Google+. would be awesome if we could choose a single g+ account that can handle all. I know this feature has been requested for years but just wondering if there is any progress on this? Thanks!

Just wrapped up a great day at AWS Summit 2014 in San Francisco. Couldn't have asked for a better event, and it was free! Wonderful networking reception afterwards too! Thanks +Amazon Web Services for putting on an event that was highly informative and not just a huge sales gimmic! #aws   #awssummit14

The Office Workout
Just because you’re at the office does not mean you can’t workout. This is the kind of exercise routine that can be carried out anywhere you have a little space and some privacy.

Wow this is incredible!
From Police Academy to even awesomer.

I am by no means an amazing beat boxer, but I have very vivid memories of marching around my house as a kid beat boxing into my hands and amazing myself. (others... not so much.)

Michael Winslow was a personal hero to me and I emulated him constantly. Here's confirmation that my assessment was accurate. He still kicks many asses.

You can always count on Scott Adams to cut to the chase brilliantly. 

A big part of my personal evolution is driven by the learning that data is not the problem. It is the way Senior Leaders think that is the problem. Or more precisely it is the way they imagine the possibilities that is the problem.

Our leaders do feel that data is important, yet they don't use it. So why are so many analysts and IT folks and big data initiatives are still funded? The last pane of the comic explains that. Even if you want to ignore the data, you want it to be very very accurate. 

The comic is funny. It is painfully true.

This is an interesting thought - but as someone who has had a computer in front of him since he was 8 (Commodore 64) - I feel a bit opposite of this. Ironically I work in the tech industry and could be part of my thoughts on this. Don't get me wrong, I would never ditch my smartphone, and all the great tech I have. But I also do think, that we're creating a society that doesn't communicate face to face. I do believe we need to re-learn how to create personal, real, close, and PHYSICAL relationships. Sitting on facebook and google+ all day doesn't create a closeness that you can/will develop with close REAL friends who you know deeply and they you. What are your thoughts?
Why I'm not unplugging.

Today at sunset, we're all supposed to unplug for 24 hours. It's called the National Day of Unplugging. 

Screw that. I'm not unplugging jack squat. Here's why. 

Organizers say the purpose of the Unplugging is to "start living a different life: connect with the people in your street, neighborhood and city, have an uninterrupted meal or read a book to your child." 

I don't want to live "a different life." I was born in the 1960s. I spent most of my life "unplugged." Yet I'm young enough to understand what being "unplugged" means. It means ignorance, wasted time, wasted opportunities and being a prisoner to time and place.

I've travelled all over the world, and have seen how the majority of people on this planet live -- unplugged. If only they could afford Internet connectivity, their lives would be transformed for the better. 

I'm supposed to "connect with the people in my street." But why are people in my street better than the people in my circles? They're not. What kind of narcissist believes that people physically near me deserve special attention?

The unplug movement assumes we're all prisoners of connectivity. I don't know about you, but being connected has set me free. It lets me go anywhere, work anywhere, live anywhere, and yet stay in constant contact with my sons and my family and friends. 

By all means, unplug if you want to. As for me, I'll unplug when I'm dead.

What I really want is more connectivity. A LOT more. I want faster speeds, and cheaper satellite data and longer battery life. I want to be able to connect from the middle of the Sahara and the top of Kilimanjaro and the middle of the ocean. I want to be "plugged" 24/7 and 365 days a year. 

What about you?

These ominous cloud formations could be of a completely new type

What you're seeing here is a cloud formation so rare that it defies classification. Meteorologists suspect that these are undulatus asperatus clouds — an entirely new cloud type that was proposed only three years ago by the Cloud Appreciation Society. The one featured here was photographed by Witta Priester in New Zealand.
