again, i don't know why i re-post stuff that Wil posts. if he's not in at least one of your circles, you probably don't deserve his posts anyway.

Spotted on Tumblr. I love this so much, it's going on the Wall of Inspiration by my desk, next to my Cult of Done Manifesto and Ira Glass' Crossing The Gap thing.

"...But in Rick Perry's America, you may want to home school. Texas ranks first in the nation in adults without high school diplomas. The future also doesn't look so bright for all those precious little ones when it comes to health insurance and potential jobs: Texas boasts another first in the nation in the percentage of children without health insurance and, in 2010, Texas tied with Mississippi for the highest percentage of workers employed in minimum-wage jobs. No wonder Governor Perry wants Texas to secede. It'd sure make [Texans] look less stupid."

neat tips for churning the community aspect of G+
Natalie Villalobos originally shared:
 
Let's build an awesome-tastic Google+ community together!
would love to have some MEGA re-shares on this baby

In these few easy steps you can maximize your Google+ experience.
Here are the tips and tricks you should know and evangelize:

Send Feedback button - In the lower right hand corner you can report bugs and give us your feature suggestions!

Google+ Discuss Forum - Join the conversation about Google+ here and chat with other Google+ community members. Please don’t use the forum for feature suggestions - it’s hard for us to keep track there - use the Send Feedback button instead. http://www.google.com/intl/en/+/learnmore/forum/

What’s New In Google+ page - The Google+ Team is frequently updating this page to let you know the latest and greatest in Google+ (spread the word new stuff comes out)! Many of these announcements are direct reflections of what you all have asked for. Keep it up!
http://www.google.com/support/+/bin/static.py?hl=en&page=release_notes.cs&rd=1

Is someone bugging you? - Use the “Block” button on any profile, this means 1) You will no longer see this person’s content in your stream, 2) This person won’t be able to comment on your content, 3) This person will be removed from your circles, and 4) This person will still be able to see your public posts. Also use the “Mute post” feature in the Stream when someone’s post is too much for you.

Report a profile - Let’s build the community we want by reporting abuse that is in violation of our Community Standards. You can Report a profile from any Google+ profile.

the About section of my profile - I update this frequently! Here you will find some information if you (or friends and family) are new - definitely share these posts from +Ahmed Zeeshan. I’ve added every Google Community Manager on this page so you can follow them to get updates on your favorite Google products and services. Make sure to add the Google+ Community Team - +Toby Stein +Brian Rose +Katherine Gramann +Evan Steinberg. You can also find information about suspended accounts.

+mentioning Community Managers - We love being engaged with Google+ and connecting with users all over the world, but unfortunately there isn’t enough time in the day to read and respond to every +mention and share. We’ll certainly do our best to help and listen where we can, and communicate directly to you via our Google+ profiles and Hangouts often.

Feedback Fridays - Every other week we will have Feedback Friday where I’ll post some questions to you from my profile. This is your chance to share your voice directly to the product team for the bi-weekly Google+ Community Report.

Thanks Much!

Natalie, Community Manager for the Google+ project

i should probably stoip asking cleverbot deep philosophical questions.... http://cleverbot.com/

some of our conversation from earlier went like this:
CB:"I didn't die.. Look I'm still alive."
Me:"You never were alive, how could you still be something that you never were?"
CB:"Aha, the game is on you, old boy. Denial is the first step toward acceptance! Good, very good."
Me:"Burn."
CB:"Very aggressive of you. you still require much training."

come on, that was passive aggressive at best.

am i the only cyclist in Chicago who is against Critical Mass? i believe it's directly antithetical to the points of traffic alleviation and fossil fuel conservation; and by completely ignoring all traffic laws and associated considerations of transportation etiquette, CM makes our case weaker, not stronger.

she shouldn't just not be president, she should be jailed: "Bachmann is not only wrong here, she is engaging in fearmongering that encourages people to break the law. And in doing so, she's falsely telling people that the Constitution would support them."
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., is no stranger to the Truth-O-Meter. So far, her comments have decidedly bent the needle to the left and, on one occasion, set the meter on fire. We swear we'r...

I just don't understand how people in positions of representing and serving the public (hired by the public, no less) think it's ok to incite them to take action that is irresponsible and against their own best interest. I'm a little ashamed to say that it upsets me so much I ignore it most times, to avoid the experience of impotent rage...
