Google = Templars? I can't be the only one noticing this. Hacked this together to illustrate. #laughter #googledrive

The video quality absolutely sucked in my last hangout, but at least I was able to make my face look like a beagle. I'll always have that.

The Nobel Prize in Literature is to be awarded tomorrow, and the stage is set for some good, old-fashioned snubbing. If Joyce Carol Oates and Philip Roth don't win this year, they'll join a long and storied list of treasured American writers snubbed by the Committee. Huzzah!

I am just now beginning to appreciate Calendar invites and meeting requests. I feel like a child.

Pretty good... Just moving forward one step at a time! I'm actually crazy busy with a second startup now, too. It's a professional writing (content creation) company that sort of just sprung up overnight.

Did you get the package I sent you?

Excited about iCloud, but disappointed with the "Docs & Data" aspect of it. From what I am beginning to understand, the only way you can store and access documents is through iWork or other "compatible" applications.

In other words, we won't see the kind of integration that even Dropbox offers with OS X. I was expecting a drive in my Finder window that I could save documents to, but that isn't what's happening here.

That one criticism aside, iTunes in the Cloud is cool, as is the Photo stream and all of the calendar and contact syncing. When iTunes Match hits, a quarter of most of my drives will be freed up. Good stuff.

Well, they are one of our clients at BLAST so I may be a little biased but it sounds amazing. From what I have HEARD they offer a pretty comprehensive cloud. Easy sign up process. You can seamless go from Mac to PC.

Work looking into. I know a lot of people in my office love their free service but I personally have not tried it yet but am going to.

Facebook changed again, and people are losing their minds, as usual. This tendency to get caught up in changes to the way we communicate got me thinking about social media, digital literature, and the nature of controversial ideas.

In the interest of promoting good conversation on the web (and, more specifically, on Google+), I'd be really interested in hearing what you all have to say about this. Anyone care to share? I'm looking at you, +Josh Littlejohn, +Muhammad Yasin, +Molly Noonan, +Douglas Karr, +Breanne Swim, +Christopher Miller, +Lorraine Ball, +Christopher Hartley, and anyone else who would like to chime in.
