Does anyone out there have a preference between diagram.ly, lucidchart and creately? Or should I just splash out and buy Omnigraffle?

Very interesting but no idea how this could be used to reduce trolling online...
 
"Researchers at the University of Haifa in Israel asked 71 pairs of college students who did not know one another to debate an issue over Instant Messenger and try to come up with an agreeable solution. The pairs, seated in different rooms, chatted in various conditions: some were asked to share personal, identifying details; others could see side views of their partner's body through webcams; and others were asked to maintain near-constant eye contact with the aid of close-up cameras attached to the top of their computer.

Far more than anonymity or invisibility, whether or not the subjects had to look into their partner's eyes predicted how mean they were. When their eyes were hidden, participants were twice as likely to be hostile. Even if the subjects were both unrecognizable (with only their eyes on screen) and anonymous, they rarely made threats if they maintained eye contact. Although no one knows exactly why eye contact is so crucial, lead author and behavioral scientist Noam Lapidot-Lefler, now at the Max Stern Yezreel Valley College in Israel, notes that seeing a partner's eyes “helps you understand the other person's feelings, the signals that the person is trying to send you,” which fosters empathy and communication."

Thought you might like this, +Kate Moore, if you haven't seen it already...
Historypin is a way for millions of people to come together to share glimpses of the past and build up the story of human history.

No, Sydney, at least this particular account. I was looking at this because I was getting excited about the history stuff we were talking about. I thought maybe we should create a History Pin account too...

Apologies for that folks, was trying to get +Streamified to talk to our +NewsLocal page and assumed since I was using G+ as NewsLocal at the time that it would send the tweets there not here. Sorry for spamming.

+Rosanne Bersten Everything okay? How can we make things clearer? Usually the browser extension will work from a brand page. Please let us know!

I'm starting to feel like I'm having too much fun researching responsive web design and all the fun things I'll be able to do with more CSS type control. #guiltypleasures #thisiswork #really

I was into astronomy when it was still astrology

Yesterday, an offhand use of the #badastrohipster hashtag on Twitter turned into a huge amount of fun, and increased my respect for my tweeps a lot. Read the post for the story and some examples, and then search the hashtag on Twitter for more: https://twitter.com/#!/search/realtime/%23BadAstrohipster

So, I don't think I've mentioned here yet that I'm starting a new content strategy company for social and digital media. Come talk to me about social enterprise, training for your company, running strategy sessions and anything else you like.

Wow. Still trying to work out how they're doing this. Stochastic pattern printed under the logo?

Well, actually, I mean both. Stochastic printing is a new colour printing that uses frequency modulated placement of dots to avoid moiré patterns but it's also been theorised you could use it to place "invisible" watermarks into photos... It's actually the precise pattern of the dots that create the image that make each one unique...

Harper has a Chinese book that uses this for scanning and speaking words aloud.

Found this down a rabbit-hole of links (started out with +Andrew Pam's post about typography on the web, to a page on lettering.js and beyond). The design is gorgeous but the post itself is a mantra to live by.
