I still find this Google+ thing very confusing.

Confusing? Yeah a bit... but worth it. If social networks were magazines. Then facebook would be People and  Google+ would be the Economist. I get so much more value out of the good discussions on Google+. I'm much more likely to follow people on Dribbble, Twitter and G+ and ignore the rest. Pinterest seems like novelty to me, but will keep with it a bit longer.

Liking the universal share and interactive notifications drawers though.

It's nice, but it's a total distraction when I'm about to google how to prepare lentils and I see a bright red notifications button just begging for me to click it.

I've been working with +Austin Bales on some initial mockups of the Tokaido UI and I need your help (keep reading).

So far, we've sketched out:

• Request
• Notification Tray
• App List (with "running server" lights)
• Edit App (hostname, icon, sandbox mode, ~/.tokaidorc)

We've spent the most time on the Request screen. I expect that people will spend most time on that screen, which should replace the log-tailing workflow. Between Puma Express integration and an awesome Request view, this should keep your terminal free for `rails` commands, `rake` tasks and the Rails console.

I need your help. After reviewing the four screens, please answer as many questions at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dDlscHBieTEzTkp1SDlWX1FEM1l3WkE6MQ as you feel like. The information we gather will help us as we move from initial design into implementation.

Please spread this post so we can get as much feedback as possible. Thanks!

So, I like this idea thusfar. However the icons everywhere are pretty bad, and the name isn't doing it for me. But especially the icons. Fix the icons.
