yay, us!!! :-)
 
YOU DID IT: #TableTop has officially hit $1M, which means that YOU broke an all-time crowdfunding record ever set on @Indiegogo for a #digital series! 

We could not have done this without the amazing community that supports TableTop, so thank you, from the very bottom of our hearts. You make every ounce of work worth it! http://ilovetabletop.com

+Tara Mclaughlin it's a web series (like a TV show, but not on TV) where, in each episode, the host has celebrity guests and they play a different board game. there was a crowdfunding campaign, to which I contributed, to make season 3. :-)

The right wing is pretty upset because A&E suspended a Duck Dynasty cast member for speaking his mind about gays and blacks.

Remember how the right wing reacted when one of the Dixie Chicks spoke their mind during a European performance (sometime in the early 2000's), "We do not want this war, this violence. And we're ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas."

G+ Questions - Mobile  - 
 
I was very happy when Google+ app on iOS was updated to support Locations.  Unfortunately, it seems that location updates happen differently on iOS compared to Android.
The two marked in this screenshot are both on iOS.
Is it possible to learn how/when G+ locations are updated for each platform, or even in general?

I follow +Natasha Tracy 's writing pretty closely these days, on a couple of different online streams.  Her writing is usually explicitly centered on Bipolar Disorder, but of course there is a huge amount of overlap with other mental illnesses, including my own Treatment-resistant Depression .  Although I don't necessarily agree with everything she writes (imagine that!), I have personally found some important insights thanks to her.  

I greatly appreciate that there are people like Natasha out there, working every day to help shine some more light into the sometimes dark corners where those of us suffering from (or supporting those who suffer from) mental illness, spend so much of our time.

On that note, I'd like to share a blog post of hers from right around the time that I began recovering (thanks to ECT!) from probably the darkest period of my life.  I didn't read this article until very recently, but there is truth in here that continues to be important every single day...

for +Julie Kostka and +Edgar Fisher , in case you don't already know about this...
 
A couple of days ago I needed to whip up a brief (5-6 page) technical report for a client. I knew it was going to be laden with equations, so LaTeX was my only choice. No problem---I have a full LaTeX system installed right here on my Mac...

...but I never bothered to touch it. Instead I just fired up writeLaTeX and cranked it out. It just struck me this morning how significant that is: the web service was smooth enough to replace my self-hosted system, and in some ways, it's better!

I suspect many Google Docs users understand this already, but if you need presentation quality equations, it's not there. Thanks to +writeLaTeX for putting together such a great service.
