Traveling like a pro. Two hour flight delay, so left two hours later - changed ticket on the way and hopped on an earlier flight that departed 30 minutes earlier, ten minute total wait time. Poor suckers have been here for hours. ;)

Is anyone else having issues with the Yahoo import request not working?

I gave up on that long time ago. Exported the contacts to a csv, imported them into Gmail and then it works.

Someone needs to develop a third-party toolkit to import all data from FB to Google+. ;)

Google killed it in their earnings announcement today. Stock up over 10% in after-hours with improvements in pretty much every business segment. I feel vindicated for piling into this stock over the last six months with everyone so giddy about Facebook (short!).

Alright. Gave-up on the automated Yahoo import and just did an export from Yahoo into a CSV file, and then imported it into Gmail. This is super clunky and needs to get fixed for it to become viral in a big way. Thanks +Omer Latif for the suggestion.

Well, I still can't get G+'s import feature to work, and it seems like Yahoo's export feature is overloaded and not responding. Grr.

How can you find any real streams of people talking? Seems like there are so few people on here.

That'll change quickly. So far it has more potential than Facebook.
