"Communities were first introduced in 2012 in hopes to cancel out the need for discussion groups…including Google’s own Groups product. It succeeded."

You're damned straight it did!

Congrats to the team on today's launch!

Wow - amazing April Fools game from the Google Maps team. Catch 150 Pokémon scattered around the world.

Tip: Looks like there's a ton around Google HQ in Mountain View. (Don't forget YouTube HQ either.)

Just found the promo video too: http://youtu.be/4YMD6xELI_k

The name shown in Android's Contacts app icon is "Lauren Ipsum." Clever.

"A power outage caused by a squirrel threw a wrench in Caltrain’s dispatching network Wednesday morning"

+Dave Besbris, thought you might appreciate that a squirrel extended my (and others') commute(s) by an hour this morning.

Woo hoo - congrats to +Jay Goldman on making the NYT bestseller list! (Case studies from Google Inc. in the book, too.)
Wow! The Decoded Company made the New York Times best seller list on its first week! More about the book at http://decodedcompany.com

I think a few community mods will be excited about this one!

Pinned posts are useful for more than just announcements - they also make it easier to establish the norms of a community, by demonstrating what a "good" post looks like.

Moderators can now pin posts in Communities

By popular demand, Community Moderators and Owners will now be able to highlight a post in their Community by pinning it to the top.  The “Pin post” option can be found on any post in your Community.  The post will then be marked as “Pinned by moderator”, and Community members will see the post at the top of their Community stream until a Moderator unpins it.   This feature is rolling out gradually over the course of the day.

Really fun new app from former Google+ PM +Chrys Bader.

Been using it - it's super entertaining (and cathartic) being able to share and read without a pesky identity!
Psst. We have a Secret to share. We built a place for you to speak freely with your friends.

Download it from the App Store: http://bit.ly/1eiYPnd

Ice-covered tree (Ontario, Canada)

A shot after the recent ice storm. Things look much nicer now that the sun's out.
