Hey, anybody out there know any of the folks on Google Plus community and/or programming teams? I'm planning a big book launch event for October with potentially a lot of Hangouts in the mix, and I'd love to touch base with somebody & make sure I'm er, doing it right.

In the meantime, G+ lived and prospered.

Wrote this a few days ago. Still thinking about it.

You know who else plays that game really well? Kevin Kelly on G+. From a non-fiction perspective, though.

I like the new Google+ layout a lot!

But that slider over on the Explore tab (under What's Hot) seems like the real story here. (Or was it there already?)

It's an interesting addition… with an interesting default setting.

How is it possible that #trayvon or #zimmerman is not "trending" on g+ over nicki/britney/Whitney and of course #newgoogleplus ?

Hmmm... Don't think Tchaikovsky meant Odette to show her knickers to Siegfried...

My internet metabolism is shifting. I'm working on bigger, slower projects now; I'm out of sync w/ the U.S. daytime internet (b/c I'm running on GMT+1 here in Italy); I'm spending more time in Reader, less in Twitter; and (this one is weird, at least for me) I'm spending more time combing through old links instead of new -- sort of rekindling some old curiosities.

It feels good!

P.S. Anybody in here?

The new FOX TV show Finder has a character who has a fevered dream in the first episode where the main character dreams he's flying in an old plane and has a zeppelin flying and eventually exploding next to him. Similar imagery

Guy is pretty active on Plus. Seems like Tumblr ought to be his scene, but I'll take it how I can get it:
