Friends! Can you help me choose between the eight designs for a #ghostwriter t-shirt I'm having designed? I feel like I'm stuck in the cereal aisle trying to choose my best breakfast for tomorrow ...
thanks!

Planning my trip to Seattle in the next two weeks to meet with folks abt a few gigs, and knock on some new doors. If you're in the city the second and third week of September would you like to meet for coffee?

"In the event of MOON DISASTER" The speech written by William Safire for President Nixon in case the men who made it to the moon couldn't make it back home. Cool stuff, with Bill Safire's audio commentary just below the image of the speech draft.

Being a big believer in shared knowledge, I've begun to make a list of people I'm intending on meeting between now and this time next year. I'm not sure how in the heck I'm going to do this, but, to a degree, just mentioning it here in the "ether" compels me to fulfill my goal.

...a rather odd way of goal setting, but one I've truly embraced since my adoption of Twitter, and now, G+. After all, these tools are, to me at least, communication tools ... AND goal setting tools. So, along those lines, here are a few folks I'm gearing up to meet in the next twelve months. The reasons for wanting to catch up with these folks cover a wide scope of interest, so I won't detail them here, but nonetheless, I look forward to tagging up. Who are you going to meet in the next twelve months? Put it down "on paper" ... so-to-speak ... and watch it materialize before your eyes!!! :-)

Mine?

+Leo Babauta
+Guy Kawasaki
+Chris Brogan
Joe Galloway (writer of We Were Soldiers Once ... and Young)
+Keith Burtis
+Peter Samson
Tim Ferriss (most know who this cat is ... author of the "Four Hour Work Week"
Russell Simmons (um ... you know him, for certain.)
David McCullough (genius author and historian)
Sarah Cunningham (archivist at the LBJ library)

That's 10 ... there are many more. Wanna' start a competition? Who are the folks you'd like to meet this "year" the people who can help you change your life for the better? Let's keep one another in check. I'm game! How about you?

...funny, I said to my Dad tonight as we were watching a show with a cat who had a nice beard ... "I kinda' miss my beard, seeing this guy." He said, "I was thinking just the opposite!" ;-)

New Circle! MUSICIANS. Are you a musician? Let me know ... I'm a drummer, and love knowing other closet tunesmiths.

Yipee!
Today we're rolling out the ability to collapse and expand comments in your stream, as well as a few tweaks to the way real-time comments are displayed. Thanks again and let us know what you think!

#googleplusupdate

Video Transcript

It's been great to hear that one of your favorite parts about Google+ is the dynamic nature of the Stream. In real-time, posts and comments arrive in your stream -- no refresh required.

While this is pretty awesome, it can sometimes be overwhelming. You've said that really active conversations with lots of comments can take over your stream. And comments appearing in real-time can sometimes make updates hard to read.

Well, today, we're fixing all this.

First, we're making it so you can easily expand and collapse comments in the Stream. Just click once to expand, click again to collapse.

And when comments arrive in real-time, we'll automatically collapse them. But, we'll still keep track of which comments you've read and which you haven't. This way, you get to choose when to engage and when not to.

We hope both of these features make your stream more pleasant to read. These are just two of the many improvements we're making based on your feedback.

Thanks again for all your great ideas and keep them coming!

Golden Slumbers anyone? One month old performance at Yankee Stadium. Not bad for a song recorded 42 years ago, eh? Love it. Enjoy!
P.S. Sir Paul, is ... wait for it ... 69 years old. Yep. 69.
Wait while more posts are being loaded
