Saw this a few nights ago; great documentary.
 
"That creation of this highly glossy commercial product is the opposite of making something personal"—Really nice movie about indie game developers.

Firefox and Android make a great match, don't you think? Are you using Firefox for Android? http://mzl.la/fx4and

HI guys, I come from Taiwan. Me and my friend of authors were total strangers that met on Google+ and later formed a tight circle that simply like writing stories.

We started to write collaborated short stories using Google Docs and within one year, it turned out to be enough for a novel. So we self-published it privately and designed the cover representing our gratitude to G+. We love this platform and hope it never gets axed like Google Reader. 

Big shout out to the talented developers behind G+, and we really want to give you a copy of our book, titled “G+, Circle of Chickens”. (In Chinese the letter “G” sounds the same as "Chicken".)

Although it’s all in Chinese, I think you guys at Google wouldn't mind. Please contact me in anyway so I can send you a copy! It would really mean a lot to us.

G+ brought us together and brought our stories together. We all came from different places with various age and backgrounds: student, insurance guy, accountant, environmental inspector, marketer, gas station clerk, carpenter, hospital nurse, and even a shrink.

Canned Laughter
I, along with other cast members of the Jupiter Mining Vessel Red Dwarf, have been deluged with appreciative comments for the past week, it's been lovely and don't feel any pressure to stop.
However there have been comments about how some people don't appreciate what they describe as 'canned laughter.'
It is a fact that Red Dwarf has never used 'canned laughter.' I completely understand what people are saying but it's possible selective memory is having an effect here. If you check this clip from series 3
Shrinking Boxers - Red Dwarf - BBC comedy
You will notice the laughter track is very much in evidence. The scene, like today with Red Dwarf X, was recorded in front of a live audience.
'Canned laughter' was a system devised in the early days of television where single camera shooting meant it wasn't possible for an audience to witness the process, it's really slow and boring.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laugh_track
Since the early 1960's and multi camera studios, most sit-coms are recorded in front of a live audience, as is Red Dwarf. The laughter you are hearing is that of the audience in the studio. 
A possible criticism is that the laughter track, the audience is recorded on a series of microphones hanging above the seating banks, is mixed overly loud at some points of the show. That is, I suppose a matter of taste and down the the discretion of the editor and director.
The essential point is, Red Dwarf has never used canned laughter, even series 7, shot using single camera techniques, was shown to a large audience and their laughter was recorded and added to the final sound track.
