Google+, Twitter and technology debates
I am probably drawing coloration's where there are none.... but.
Yesterday I mentioned on the Twitters that I am now in more circles on G+ than I have followers on Twitter. I started using Twitter in 2007,  in 5 years I have slowly built up over 95,0000 followers. I have also lost maybe 5,000 because if I get a bit moody, say something a bit too controversial or use bad language people leave in droves. My fave unfollow Tweet "Potty Mouth! Rude fail. #unfollow."
In just over a year over 96,000 people have dragged me into their circles on G+ and I'm very happy about that. I'm under no illusions about the real meaning of these figures. Maybe as few as 10-15% of Twitter account holders would regularly use the service and I would guess much the same applies on G+. However if I ever suggest that I find G+ to be a useful service, that the interactions are stimulating, intelligent, profound and generous all I hear is 'no one uses it' or 'Google are evil.'
Essentially if people don't use a service, some feel the need to find reasons to justify their non involvement by being critical of it. I don't really understand that desire or action. For example I don't use Facebook, not because I think Facebook is evil or I don't agree with their privacy policy, I'm just not interested, I don't think anyone who does use it is in any way inferior or duped. 
I've found G+ is sticky, I keep coming back, I learn a lot from using it, from the people I have circled etc. I'm not trying to get people to use it, if they do, fine, if not, fine.
I'm seeing a similar reaction to information about new technology, as in electric cars. The respons to my last post (about fast charging EV's) gives some indication of the level of involvement here. 226 comments, some of them incredibly well informed and wise, some, obviously barking mad and funny.
But it also gives examples of a similar mindset, people who've probably never driven or even seen an EV have very strong opinions about them, in fact they often display what some could see as an irrational hatred and fear of them. I've always been confused about that, it is after all just a car. Not a weapon of mass destruction or a political ideology designed to oppress the masses and keep a privileged elite in power. It really is, just a car.
One last thing. I posted my piece yesterday at 3:30 pm in the UK, all the initial responses were from people in Europe, later in the evening comments started coming in from the USA and there was a profound and measurable difference. I think in Europe we really do see electric cars as cars, liberal or conservative, it's not a political issue to anything like the extent it is in North America. In the USA  and in the current political climate EV's are seen by some as an oppressive tool of the state, Obama cars being 'rammed down our throats by Al Gore.'
Hard for some of us outside the USA to understand.

i went to priyah thai hospital yo get prescribed codeine for my bad back. they gave me 40 tablets of cosegic. i went back to the hospital for more medicine and the doctor said that he would not prescribe me any more medicine. he also called the police. so i ran out the building and got the nearest taxi home. I believe that this is a non-buddist way of dealing with people and i shall not be returning to the hospital again. they dont care about buddah, they just want your money.
