Great case study on combining e-democracy with face-to-face. I would say supplementing, but I think actually they're equally important.
Cheers to @patrick Middleton for the heads up. http://t.co/vOc1MD2

Much as I would like to share serious weighty things, in reality, this is the best thing I've seen all day. http://is.gd/dmQyzM

Everyone's probably already seen this, but it's still the most interesting thing I've seen about G+:
'What Google+ is really about (pst! it's not social) '

+Tristan Bunn True. I guess I need to spend the time sorting people properly into circles and use that discriminately.

So, how come I've +1ed loads of things on here, but when I look at my profile +1 tab, there's nothing there? Does it only list stuff from the rest of the web? That seems a bit strange, or I'm missing something...

It was working for me during the week... I +1ed a load of things within Google+ and they all went into my +1 tab no problem. But not today. Guess we have to remember that Google+ hasn't been released yet and they're still working on it...

At the moment, G+ feels to me more like a message board than anything. Anyone else?

Once I followed someones shared home education circle, G+ opened right up for me. Lots of new people with a shared interest who I pick through to make my own HE circle. Lots of circling/uncircling actions.

So I'd say a bit more interactive than a forum, where I tend to lurk and read. Have you tried using reddit with an account and custom frontpage?
