Google Plus finally lifts insistence on 'real names only' for users.
 
When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.

Aye, aye cap'n.
First time sailing, courtesy of the Girl  Guides. 
Glorious sunshine made sure the day in the water in the shadow of the Forth Bridge wasn't too much of a freezing ordeal for a 10-year-old.
On a sunny day, you can really stop and appreciate what a beautiful and brilliant piece of engineering the bridge is.

First check of the phone photo auto upload function in Google+ - interesting to see the creation of motion with GIFs. This was the women in our office having fun for National Onesie Day

No surprise the "dumb ways to die" campaign was lauded. It is brilliant. http://feedly.com/k/15tZDgM

The changing nature of headlines.
If we are now to write headlines for a social media audience, then we've come full circle in less than 10 years.
It wasn't so long ago that newspaper headline writers were laughed at: part of a doomed old media writing headings that were not machine readable, so considered useless for SEO.
Now we've got online pioneers acting as though writing short, eyecatching, pithy, emotive headings for real people is an amazing new concept. Tchoh.
Still can't beat the work of a good tabloid newspaper sub.

One of my favourite headlines was by a colleague for a new release about a flower show with an Egyptian theme. It simply read: Chrysanthemummies. Contravenes all the 'rules' - I know. Just funny!

Great man. Still putting out some of the most amazing TV programmes on any channel (recent Galapagos series on Sky proves he can take it beyond the Beeb). This pic was taken a few years ago during a visit to Edinburgh
