Amazing time lapse view of Earth from the ISS.

"Money is like gasoline during a road trip. You don't want to run out of gas on your trip, but you're not doing a tour of gas stations. You have to pay attention to money, but it shouldn't be about the money."

#autoawesome  

This is how awesome Google+ photos has become. I took the top three photos, and the "Auto Awesome" technology (http://goo.gl/JPf15) auto-magically created the panorama in the bottom.

Subtle things to note:
1. I took these photos without any panoramic intentions, hence the tops of the original photos are not aligned.
2. In my original album, the middle photo was actually taken last, so it wasn't an obvious chronological stitch, but the algorithms figured it out anyway.
3. +Jayna Patel, the leftmost girl in the third photo is smiling in the middle photo but not in the third; the panorama chose the smiling face.
4. My finger covered the top-right of the first photo which makes alignment even more difficult. No sweat!

I cleaned up my circles and set my volume sliders, and my stream is now awesome; it's filled with posts from friends and people I actually care about.

This made me realize how wildly different everyone's experience with Google+ is. I went from a very impersonal stream full of celebrities and startup founders to something very personal and very interactive.

So if you're not getting what you want out of Google+, use the circle and volume sliders feature -- that's what it's there for! :)

Very insightful essay on the ordering of the Star Wars trilogies. I'm completely sold. I'm going to re-watch all the episodes in Machete Order.
