So... thanks to everyone who's sharing here. Still skeptical of Google+ - more active on twitter @cjsherman if you're interested in more frequent updates.

Looking forward to following on twitter as well +Chris Sherman but I'd love more insight on your "Skepticism" that is,  it seems that +Search Engine Land & a social network built on a search engine would be the perfect match isn't it??

For those of you who don't know, in addition to being our highly talented Executive News Editor at, Matt is also the founder of the excellent site. This is an amazing (and incredibly well-informed) playlist.
Matt McGee originally shared:
Okay, it's finally ready for public consumption. My Spotify playlist:

U2 songs that were not Big Hits that non-U2 fans should listen to

Not allowed/supposed to shuffle it - the order was chosen with purpose. Tracks 4 and 5 must be played together as they are on U2's first album.

2 months later now...(late to the party, obviously). Interesting mix of U2 tunes, Matt. Obscure stuff in there. I bet if this was what they put out in front of folks they wouldn't have done nearly as well. I dig the stuff, but I bet most would not -- too much weid stuff in the mixes -- bell tree, really?? But, I like weird stuff, so there ya go (Chris can confirm).

I still have a 7" of U2's first single from their first long play Boy ( A Day Without Me b/w Things To Make And Do -- only their third single ever). I was enamored of Steve Lillywhite at the time, him having produced most of the XTC of the period (my fave pop band ever), so when I was in Bournemouth, UK the summer of '80 visiting an old bandmate from my year abroad at the U of Warwick, I stopped in at the local record store and asked for anything produced by Mr. Lillywhite. The shop owner pointed me to this single.

Can I paste a link to one of my pics in here? Gonna try: -- Maybe some collector will buy it from me and then I can send my kids to college...

Heh - apt. My favorite story about "404 not found" - that was the room number where the first www server was located, in the building at CERN where Tim Berners-Lee worked when he wrote the first implementation of the web.
Louis Gray originally shared:
So... regarding carmaggedon. If they wanted the 405 to be out of service, why not just rename it 404 so people wouldn't find it, or 403 to keep them out?
