I had started a small project there, because we are using Google Apps for business. The fact they're closing down is one reason I switched. The other is a lack of private repositories, even for GApp users

Word bending with #leadership - I think Mrs. Lemmings brings in a facet of leadership, but also limits the responsibility of the leader.
Every weekly meeting, I have this routine to remind my team about something. I remind them that they shouldn’t call me a “leader”. I would prefer them calling me as a guide.It all started when I was still in middle school and our group project ended up in a disgrace. 5 of us were sent to the principal’s office because the 5 of us (all girls) ended up fighting inside the classroom. The reason? Our leader, Janna, acted like a phony. She decides eve...

As Monty Python would say - "I'm not dead, yet. Actually, I'm feeling much better!"
 
I don't often share press articles about our products – they rarely seem to say much of use – but this was just such a good case of a journalist Getting It Right that I had to share. Google+ is very much alive, and our recent changes are focused on making it be the best product it can be for what it's best at: helping people meet people and have great conversations about things they're passionate about. 

One particularly noteworthy thing in this article is its discussion of the "majority illusion:" people tend to assume that their friends are typical of the wider world, but almost by definition they aren't – for one thing, they all have one uncommon attribute in common, which is being your friend in the first place. And since people don't choose their friends randomly from the entire spectrum of humanity, one's friends are always a distorted sample. 

So yes, we have here a tech press article which (correctly) uses an important result in cognitive psychology to explain why lots of tech press articles are nonsense.

To be a leader, you need to know and recognize the right exceptions.
Great employees are reliable, dependable, proactive, diligent, great leaders, and great followers. They possess a wide range of easily defined -- but hard to find -- qualities.A few hit the next level. Some employees are truly exceptional, possessing qualities that may not appear on performance appraisals but nonetheless make a major impact on performance.Here are eight qualities of exceptional employees. See how many you possess:1. They’re a lit...
