Thanks for the props, +Ben Bederson.

Google's new Blogger "FlipCard" view is amazingly similar to Microsoft's (defunct) Pivot technology. Congrats to +Gary Flake for having his team's innovative ideas commercialized - even if it wasn't Microsoft that did it. Always interesting to watch the path from innovation to commercialization.

Google Blogger's FlipCard "dynamic view" - look at 0:40 in the embedded video:

looks cool but it's kinda a lot of clicking ! that's what I hate about facebook iOS app , for eg. you have to go into another screen to be able to comment or see who has commented or liked a post, and then you have to get out as well while on web you have it in front of you! I mean filters and collections are great as long as they are search and find based!

This is an attempt to share a thing that was a share of a thing. But it looks like just a share of a thing.

I am finding the calculus of circles and sharing on google+ a little mysterious. I receive notifications by email that someone has placed me in their circle, but on visiting both mine and their profile pages, there is nothing to indicate that I am in a circle. I've seen some of these inconsistencies take hours or days to work out.

And just a short while ago I received an email with someone else's complete post, yet neither of us is in the others circle. (Perhaps they added me explicitly to the share line.)

Anyhow, there is so much to like with google+, but it seems a bit strange with how inconsistent it is. I can't tell if it is the model that is flawed or the implementation.

Does that make this a meta-share or a recursive share? I'm now confused.

I've not seen that, but there have been increasing instances of flakiness (pun not intended, but I'll take it) as the system load seems to grow. Beyond those times, I've not had those issues, so I'm guessing it's growing pains.

The world is in balance. The number of people I have in my circles and the number of circles I appear in are now equal. Everyone stay put until further notice.

Testing to see how sharing something that was shared works.

So, is there a way for me to see which circles I am in? (And really, can others see the circles that I put them in?) I am wondering what happens when someone creates a circle called "dipshits" or something like that, and inadvertently broadcasts something better left private.

It will be interesting to see what kinds of hacks for G+ appear out there over time - "What G+ circles am I in" would be a logical first hack, if it can be done. Followed, no doubt, by a surge in divorces, breakups and other assorted side-effects (lawsuits?) of the breakdown of this particular - yet socially necessary - bit of information hiding.
