I haven't posted on Google+ in a while, so that's something new to do. Still hoping Google+ becomes something.

After many hours of focussed effort, I finally cleaned out my email inbox. It feels great; I am relishing the moment while it lasts.

I've given up on my work email inbox. 10,500 messages since Nov 29, 2010, 530 of them unread. My Gmail inbox is in much better shape, but that's because its search interface makes it easy just to archive messages.

"The protesters’ Web site includes links allowing supporters anywhere in the world to go online and order pizzas (vegan preferred) from a local pizzeria that delivers them to the square...In a tribute to the ingenuity of capitalism, the pizzeria quickly added a new item to its menu: the 'OccuPie special.'"

I almost hit another squirrel on the way to work this morning, in the same place, but this squirrel was less dumb.

If one yells into Google+, how loud is the echo? It's like an arena rock concert with a coffee shop-sized audience, on a Tuesday. At any rate, it's good to see the few of you who are here. The whole thing is ours, for now.

Here's an apt article to post in Google+. I hope it's not true; I kinda of like Google+, the look and feel of it anyway.

Signing up for Google+ has reignited my interest in social networking. But I have to say that the end result is that I spend a whole lot more time on Facebook.

Octopus references always make my day.

I hit a squirrel on the way in to work this morning. Evidence suggests that it was a very dumb squirrel.

I'm on Google+ now and see a glorious new world before me. But I'm tired and will go to bed.
