Heat Shield

I get a lot of heat for not releasing a full write API for Google+. At SXSW I was even booed by developers in the audience when I said we were not ready to open an API. 

I've repeatedly stated the reason - I'm not interested in screwing over developers. When we open an API, we want developers to feel confident that the innovations they build are going to be long lasting. Releasing an API, and then later changing the rules of the game isn't fun for anyone, especially developers who've spent their life's energies building on the platform.

So I'm sorry that we haven't released a wide open write API for those of you who want one. We're being careful because we want to be different. You know, actually respectful of developers who build on our platform. It's novel. I know.

Surprising study: One minute of exercise at 90% of your max heart rate followed by one minute of rest ten times (twenty minutes total) had significant health benefits. This is true even if done once or twice a week, you aren't fit, and are a cardiac patient!

Also people seemed to like the more intense shorter workout better than a longer more moderate one. Seems like it is worth a shot! What have you found the best way to stay fit in the minimum time?
