As the happy owner of a new pup, this issue of Les's blog resonated strongly. 

So, The Guardian is reporting that G+ still doesn't appear to be taking the fight to Facebook & Twitter.
I was always quite strongly of the view that G+ could survive happily as a kind of middle way between the Big 2, but now it would seem that other social networks are making a bigger splash in the inbetween space.

Clearly Google have put a huge amount into the redesign of the mobile apps and all of the noises from Google HQ are sounding very committed to G+ being a core part of the company's strategy.

What would you do to sort these numbers?

Thanks to +Kee Hinckley for sharing this little gem from @Roger Sherman on law enforcement in a world that seems to be slowly losing both its marbles and a sense of perspective. 
Holy shit - this is very literally a case of police using a taser to torture a pregnant woman who wasn't doing anything except refusing to sign a speeding ticket.

This country is lost.
