Here's a copy of my comment after reading your original rant. Before you read it (if you do...), I know that social 'celebs' like you are always looking for controversial topics to push buttons on, but really? In the grand scheme of things, can anyone
(other than blind fan followers) really see your rant as anything other than blatant whining?
Anyway - if you're still interested, here's a copy of my post from the 28th...
I agree, yesterday's rollout of Google Events was not exactly 'perfectly' implemented. But damn, the faux celebs on G+ out there need a reality check AND a spanking.

Really? Do you live in Colorado? Is your home in danger of being burned down? Did your kid just get diagnosed with autism? Did you lose your life savings because some jackass on Wall Street decided to play 'Lets Spin the Wheel!'?
Come on +Robert Scoble
and +Wil Wheaton
(and numerous others). I respect you guys, don't make me regret it and dump it.
So you got invited to events... You're still alive and taking nourishment.
Celebrities whining about popularity... That should win friends and influence people...
You're like that joke about the guy on the airplane that complains when the inflight WIFI goes down. YOU'RE SITTING IN A CHAIR... IN THE SKY! You just got mad about a SMALL fault with something you didn't even know existed up until 30 minutes ago!
People are whining about a FREE service that had a hiccup!
What's more is that celebrities and popular people are whining about a FREE service that makes them money and builds their fan base, that had a hiccup!
It. Is. Not. The. End. Of. The. World. Although you'd think they were ready to swap Snookie's impending child birth on 12/21/2012 for Google's booboo as the likely cause of the Mayan End of the World Scenario...
