So, one thing about G+ is there is a ton of recycling of the same stories...I guess on Twitter there is more variety of folks involved so more content....just saying :)

A LOT of recycling, for me on twitter as well. I guess it depends on the folks you follow. I wish I could follow profiles without seeing their post as a default, but just when I explicitly want too.

80% of my social feed is mobile - is this because mobile is truly taking over the world, or have I become a one topic pony?

Mobile is an evolving marketplace, no doubt.

http://www.mobilecommercedaily.com/2011/07/29/how-to-choose-a-winning-mobile-strategy

Choose a Mobile vendor who:
"Understand both digital and consumer trends
Realize how technology is changing the world, but from a consumer perspective, and not business
Bring deep mobile experience
Train and educate people internally around mobile"

By the way, I'm in a restaurant called Gordon Ramsay, and it has the best bread I've ever eaten. Something called Irish soda bread.
