We have to look out for each other when people share sensitive information or photos. But that requires using these social tools against the grain of their design.

Restaurante Dona Tomas
5004 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland, CA 94609
For years, this has been the best fancy Mexican food in the Bay. (Also, my favorite restaurant.) It still is really, really good, but it's not quite as amazing as in years past. Now there's new competition up in Berkeley, too, the new Oaxacan joint, Comal.

Oh, and they make a mean drink.

This is even better than name dropping the books you've read at parties. Simply open "War and Peace" at page 723, take a photo and post #throughglass  with the message 'such luscious prose.'

I like this here #newgoogleplus look. Not sure if it'll make a huge difference, but it's nice to have a better-looking product.

It's an improvement, but would a little font flexibility be so hard? My kingdom for a serif.

Woof. Came back here to upload a video of my niece and then share it with some people. So not intuitive. So hard to make basic stuff work they want you want it to.

The easiest way to upload and share pix and clips is to just let your Android phone do instant uploads. Then toggle and share to private circles of friends. Works for me but I'm living in Droidland.
