Coolness

Google+ suddenly twice as awesome

Google honcho +Vic Gundotra announced this morning that Google has roughly doubled the awesomeness of Google+.

First, they added search. Finally! To me, this feature alone transforms the service from a "toy" into a "tool."

Second, G+ is open to the public -- no invitation required. It's now officially "beta," and no longer a "field trial."

The surprising improvements, however, are all about Hangouts.

Hangouts on your phone for Android users with a front-facing camera. (iOS version coming soon.) I'm personally shocked by this. I didn't expect mobile Hangouts to appear for a year or two.

Guntotra also announced "Hangouts On Air," which lets you live broadcast (to a huge audience) and record hangouts.

The setup is simple enough: Just start a normal hangout, and you’ll have the option to broadcast and record your session. Once you’re “On Air,” up to nine others can join your hangout (as usual), and anyone can watch your live broadcast. (The feature is available initially to a few broadcasters.)

Hangouts are also getting screen sharing, "Sketchpad" for drawing pictures on screen, Google Docs integration and the ability to name your Hangouts. These are still in "beta," but you can try them by choosing “Try Hangouts with extras” in the green room.

Hangouts are also now extensible with newly announced APIs. Hangouts is now a platform.

These are all seriously cool and welcome improvements. (Note that many of the immediate improvements are being rolled out all day, so you may not have them just yet.)

Whoa! Makes me thankful I live in the Sonoran Desert!
Read 'Giant crocodile captured alive in Philippines' on Yahoo! News. Villagers and veteran hunters have captured a one-ton saltwater crocodile which they plan to make the star of a planned ecotourism ...

It's such a pleasure to showcase awesome talent like that of +Mike Shaw! These portraits capture so much in a split second! Every time I look through them I want to start again!

I went out to Liverpool while the Matthew Street Music Festival was on to get some street portraits. I saw this young boy on his fathers shoulders dancing to the music. Just as I took his shot he turned and looked straight at me.

These are the days to be in cash or short stocks. Don't get caught long!
A more severe crash than the one triggered by the collapse of Lehman Brothers could be on the way, according to alarm signals in the credit markets.

There are many great shots posted here each day, but I kept coming back to this one from +Karen Hutton. The painterly feel has put me in a trance. Beautiful capture and very nice post processing!

I love oak trees. I usually like shooting them from underneath or 'inside' them, but a friend asked me to do this. It was for a book cover... the theme was "Thrive". They ended up going all graphics, no photos at all... but I ended up with this, which to me the real win! It's different from what I've done before, so my creative ceiling was raised. Luvit.

For this photo, we had to hike across a large field filled with thigh-high start thistle in 100 degree heat. I can honestly say that I bled for this shot! But I giggled as I did, because I kept remembering a good friend's advice to "Embrace the Horror." The simple theory goes... when the going gets tough - enjoy it! Because that's where your story is that you'll tell later. Not in the easy going... "Oh it was point and shoot, no big." yawn. But in "I bled for this shot" story you tell later.

So the next time things start going south for ya, no more whining! Pay attention. Take notes. And imagine how FANTASTIC that story is going be over a long, cool one at the end of the day. Embrace the horror, baby! Hehheh.

I am in awe of the incredible seascapes in this group from Brisbane-based +Jason Asher! Absolutely stunning work!
Jason Asher originally shared:
 
"As Aeons Pass". As many of you will know this is the famous 12 Apostles (or at least some of the few that are still left) as found along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. We were plagued with poor weather most of the time we were here, though thankfully the clouds parted just in time for me to shoot this before the sun lay itself to rest for another day.
