Strangely, G+ is recommending your old profile to me. Probably as someone with a lot of connections to others in my circles. Perhaps the G+ team needs to add some kind of deprecation configuration setting. That'd probably be something a few introverted people would like, too - a "don't suggest me to anybody" switch.

Funny. I removed you on the mobile client a while back, and apparently the mobile client never pushed the change back. Awesome...

A great read by +MG Siegler and I'm glad that this message is getting out there.

The only thing I can offer is the advice to take everything you read in the technology press with a grain of salt. Perhaps several. The likelihood that at least part of it is nonsense is very strong. And stronger by the day.

I don't have inside information about most companies but I do have some inside information about Google and I can confirm that there's a lot of "bullshit" in what the press writes. And surprisingly, it continues to surprise me. It wouldn't take much thought for the authors to catch a glimpse of the truth. But perhaps then the headlines wouldn't be as interesting.

Introduction
This is my old profile.  Please link to my new one:

This Google account is very old and full of cruft from countless merges of Google products and it was causing me problems. As much as a pain-in-the-butt it is to start over (especially with 12,000+ followers), I've decided to do that now before the problem gets any worse.

Please remove this me from your circles and add the new me (+Brian White) to those same circles. I wish there were an automated way to do that. <sigh>

Now, I know you're asking yourself, "Is this for real or some sort of spam/scam?". (You are asking, right?) On the assumption that both my Google account and my personal blog have not both been compromised, you can visit http://www.backgroundexposure.com/blog/ and find the same link there to my new profile.

Anyway...

This particular Brian currently works for Google in Zurich, Switzerland.  He was uprooted from Ottawa, Canada for the job and thinks that Switzerland is one of the nicest places to live in the world.  Having grown up in the Rocky Mountains of interior British Columbia, it's much like "home" to look out over landscape and see the Alps.
Bragging rights
I have a natural gift for recognizing the next "big" technology product: I look at it and think, "Who in their right mind would want that?!?"
