I'm part of a team of artists preparing this project for December. I've been developing ideas for it since February and we've been meeting weekly and biweekly since the Spring. Your "like" would be much appreciated so we can start gaining an online audience. Follow "qr_u" on Twitter. Website launches Nov 1st. Thanks!

hmm...What if you want to communicate with someone in your circles on G+ but don't want to chat/hangout or create a gmail address?

I'm intrigued by +Chris Sacca's tweets: Google+ remains too much work for me. Engagement is high as a content producer. But as a content consumer, it's really hard to peruse.

and

Every threaded Google+ post has 10 clickable action calls not even counting the content, avatars, and handles. Facebook 6. Twitter 5.

I think he's right that it's too complex. Twitter has the advantage that it started ultra-simple and grew complexity (thinking of John Gall: "A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be patched up to make it work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system.")

That being said, I don't think Google+ is over the line of complexity. I think it's close enough to right that some tweaks will make it easier to use and consume.

I do think that the fact that you can't have threaded discussions on Twitter is a feature, an important one. The fact that Google+ lets you write posts like this makes it intrinsically harder to use. But hey, Facebook shows us that that isn't over the complexity barrier for people. I think it's going to work.

The main thing I want is tighter integration of other services. I want to be able to email stuff into G+, a la posterous. I want to be able to "retweet." I want to be able to gateway my tweets and expand on them (that would be killer for me, if I could just automatically send over a tweet, then write a bit more commentary and backstory.) So those are new features, to be added.

My baby girl just met her Great Grandmother for the first time--using hangouts (while my dad was visiting her in Missouri). All four generations of Smarrs loved it. I'm calling this a game-changer, folks! :)

Google+ = new language & experiences to reflect on for Selfpost | Postself; circles, streams, hangouts, sparks...slow the networks down so I can comprehend this tangled web I'm in..
