If you have some desire to view a list of the people you followed on Google Reader (such as to add them to G+), then this might be helpful. You'll first have to go to Google Reader settings & export the list, though. Then go here: http://rugfreenc.org/greader-follower-parser.html

Hmm, I've been away from G+ for a bit and now I don't seem to have the list of circles on the left under Stream. Where did they go?

Yeah, I dunno, I was having some kind of weird browser issue or something. They'd disappeared entirely. Now they're back.

I wish I could say that I was using G+ more & more but the reality is that I'm using it less & less. Being able to selectively post to multiple places from Tweetdeck is just too strong an attractor for me. Sorry!

Heh, well, they send email notifications that say "you can't reply to this email, go to the web UI" so somebody at least thought of the use case & rejected it at that level ;-)

Electric Car Parking! So is that free electricity coming out of the ground there on the left?

Never thought I'd see this in Raleigh. Guess I won't be able to park here for a long time.

Their show at 506 last year is still in my top 5 of all time. So glad that the new album has caught on as well as it has.

Seriously? They went with games before releasing a public API?

So can we each make a circle of people who promise to only share things from Google Reader, and then only share things to that circle? +Abby Nardo & +Jason Sullivan , y'all were my big two sharers. Who else?

I dunno. I'll keep reading stuff in GReader & I might even occasionally share stuff to G+, but I don't know that I'm going to visit G+ multiple times/day to see what other ppl have shared like I did with my GReader pals. It was right there in the same UI.

I use Google Apps for Domains for my primary email (ross@rossgrady.org). G+ is not available for Google Apps accounts yet. So I use G+ as rossgrady@gmail.com.

Unlike most other social networking systems, there doesn't seem to be a way to tell G+ that I have other email addresses (such as ross@rossgrady.org) which people might try to share things with.

So now I get email notifications to my ross@rossgrady.org account telling me that someone has shared something with me, and including a big red button inviting me to check out G+. But of course when I click it it tells me that G+ isn't available for me yet.

NO option to say "hey, I already use G+ from another account."

And of course NO option to say "quit sending me fucking notifications to this account."

I'm rapidly going from profound ambivalence to active annoyance at G+. Good job, Google!

WTF Google+? I just got an email because someone I don't know shared something with me. They aren't in my circles but I'm in their circles, I guess.

So I went to the settings to try to figure out how to turn that off, but the only setting is a simple checkbox for getting an email when someone (anyone, I guess) shares something with me.

Which I guess I'll turn off now. Since I'm currently visiting G+ about once a week I figured I'd leave it on in case I missed something important, but random people sharing random stuff with me doesn't rise to that threshold.

This is an example of the kind of thing that leaves me a bit uneasy with the G+ system. It seems a little difficult to know who is seeing what exactly. I think I understand but every so often something kooky like that pops up...

Yeah, thinking of Ross watching 3D porn does that to me also.

Did this just hit one of my personal sweet spots, or is it truly one of the raddest things ever created?
