Right, so Eric Pickles has announced a return to weekly bin collections, with financial incentives. Why bother? We are in a time of austerity so this begs the question where is the money going to come from? In addition I really don't understand the big problem with fortnightly bin collections.

My local council has had kerbside recycling collections for seven years now and since that has been implemented, we rarely put more than one or two small bags of waste in our regular bin (which remains on a weekly collection). The recycling bin on the other hand is collected fortnightly and is usually completely full and overflowing by collection.

We also compost our organic waste (in a composter provided at a subsidy by the council) which helps us reduce our collected waste further. To my mind the move is not an issue of cuts, but one of people resisting change and being simply too lazy to put in the minimal effort required to separate their waste into the appropriate bins.

Seems like more and more people that I actually know are making it on to Google+ (hi guys!). Maybe it's got legs after all!

Wow, so I haven't updated Google+ in a month, yet I'm on facebook several times a day. Unless my actual real friends get over here and start posting interesting stuff that I want to read and engage with then I'm going to end up ignoring it completely.

I've started blocking games things from my news feed and it helps, but twitter still better!

Really? The man looks and sounds like he is from the 1940s. So out of touch as to be completely irrelevant and massively offensive. He should know better.

From now on I am going to use +Wil Wheaton's approach. I'm going to use this approach in real life as well as on the internet. Means I'm going to have to try extra hard not to be a dick myself though!
 
Friendly reminder: I have zero tolerance for people who are dicks in life, and online. If you are a dick, for any reason, I will block you without a second thought.

Don't be a dick.

Update: just heard that the pilot died in the crash. Very sad indeed.

Oh good god, I see Google+ has now added games. I fear that this means it will bring in all of the worst parts of facebook (random spamming game requests) without really bringing the better bits (my actual friends).

Please, Google, don't just add random features to try and match facebook, it's not necessary and will almost certainly guarantee that Google+ will fail. The best way to attract people away from facebook will be to accentuate the differences and that with Google+ they can avoid everything that they hate about FB. For me the things I hate about facebook are the privacy concerns (which G+ has addressed) and the annoying spamming games!

OK, it looks like playing the games doesn't spam everyone in my circles with stupid updates so that's not too bad. Looks like I spoke too soon.
