HTML (as opposed to XHTML) tags are supposed to be case insensitive, but on at least one blog I follow, if tags are not opened and closed with the same case, Feedly does not respect the closing tag. A sample entry from that blog is linked here: it is broken in Feedly (a closing <b> tag is not respected in Feedly's rendering) while it does render correctly in its own browser window.

Okay, my "Family" Circle has just one member at the moment: my wife Catherine (who isn't actually on Google+, just added via her email address). And yet Google somehow knows to suggest my mother-in-law, my father-in-law, my mother, and my father (all of whom, like Catherine, are only email contacts)—and no one else—as potential members. That is amazing, and creepy.

The Bach-Busoni Chaconne in dm is my summer piano project. I'm not sure whether it's good Bach, but it's definitely very good Busoni. :)

If I were Yammer I'd be pretty bummed about Google+.

Google+ friends! er, followers! er, circle-mates! Is it just me or is there no way to get links, etc., into Google+ without manually cutting and pasting? I may be scarce on here until that's fixed.

In the meantime, here are two things for you to read. The short one is my review of David Brooks's The Social Animal, linked below.

The long one is Ian Morgan Cron's memoir ("of sorts") Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me. If there is a better summer read, I can't imagine what it is. Funny and deeply moving. Buy it, I urge you. And then share it with anyone you love. It is, in fact, everything that Brooks's story falls short of being.
