Good list. I think I might try some of these.

Insightful piece. I never thought of my chronic lateness as connected to a penchant for thrill-seeking.

Amazing photography from the Phillippines. It's so important to show examples of resilience in the face of climate disasters, which are already common, and will only get moreso. Also, best use of Instagram I've seen yet.

It's +Google for Entrepreneurs Week! Check out this animated gif of the 5 Stages for Startup Success:





....


Unfortunately, with the company's success, +Google is now selling out its founders' principles. The company's political arm has abandoned its "don't be evil" philosophy and joined with anti-science, anti-innovation, anti-climate groups like the Koch-backed +American Legislative Exchange Council, +Competitive Enterprise Institute, and +The Heritage Foundation.
  
Google's membership in ALEC is a betrayal of trust of their customers and stakeholders. Learn more: http://goo.gl/jfkF33

Wow. Google's Earth Engine site is amazing. It's spooky doing Landsat timelapses from 1984-2012, like this one showing the gradual deforestation of my home town, #Bainbridge Island, WA. https://earthengine.google.org/#intro/v=47.6262081,-122.52124479999998,10.393055565193158

Ha! This is frighteningly accurate. Replace Jerry Garcia with Leon Russell and Miles Davis and this fits me to a T.

In light of the Senate's vote to limit filibusters to legislation and SCOTUS nominees, it's worth revisiting this piece from a few years back by +David Roberts . Great for talking points on why the #filibuster is bad for so many things.
