Interesting way of pulling in ads through the Knowledge Graph.
A couple of #MozCast  updates. Google rolled out a book feature directly in the Knowledge Graph for hotel properties. You'll see an arrow next to the price - click it to get a booking drop-down (see attached screen).

Another example of how Google+ is being amassed into other Google products. This time it's Gmail.
Customers can now follow you directly from Gmail
Posted by +Saurabh Sharma and +David Nachum:

Today we're expanding the +Gmail people widget to include brands and businesses (, making it easier for your customers to connect with you on Google+. This way, when people receive emails from your domain, they can follow your Google+ page directly from their inbox! Your recent Google+ posts can also appear in the widget (alongside your email message), helping customers find and engage with your content.

To appear in the new Gmail widget, all your business or organization needs is a verified Google+ page and digitally-signed emails. Check out this page to learn more:

Strategist, golfer, dad, photographer, drupalist, mathematician, tech geek.
I have been working in project and programme management since 1999. During this time I have balanced numerous elements of digital services - from technical architecture & business analysis through to project and programme management - and am skilled at engaging cross-functional stakeholders to deliver successful projects.

In this time I have also been fortunate to work with some great companies, across retail, pharmaceuticals, publishing, central government and entertainment. I have managed marketing campaigns, training curriculums, and digital projects on proprietary and Open Source systems and participate in regular networking events to promote the use of Digital to achieve overall business objectives.
