This seems pretty damn accurate.

"What G+ is really about (pst!!! it's not social") -- +Vincent Wong Believe it? Go here http://bit.ly/qfHKZQ and see his G+ photo album that argues the case. (Just click the first photo.) As a subtle counterpoint, or maybe an attenuation, it reminds me of one of my first posts here: http://bit.ly/o9NC7N People continue to talk about G+ being a Twitter & Facebook killer, but if that happens, that's besides the point. G+ is something new and inspires its own behavior & userbase. That said, can you guess who Vincent Wong thinks should be worried about G+?

Introduction
I'm a web designer from New Jersey.  I do a lot of design work, as Photoshop has now taken the place of my right hand.  I'm a film buff, a music fanatic, a board game geek, and on weekends, there's a good chance I could be seen in Manhattan dressed as a Ghostbuster.
