I've written a little post on my (newly revamped) blog about the "new" scrolling on the Lion OS. go read and tell me if I'm wrong

google+ is acting all sorts of crazy, so if it takes you out of my circles it's not my fault...I'll try to put you all back.

+Tom Anderson is finding some of the coolest stuff about Google+. I reeeeally like this presentation.
"What G+ is really about (pst!!! it's not social") -- +Vincent Wong Believe it? Go here 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: 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+?

google offers is live in Midtown NYC. how do I know? because I just bought $10 worth of food at Crif Dogs for $5! :)

here's a thought. with all this hype about google+, has anybody else used google music beta? I think it's pretty cute and somewhat useful. for now it's useful in reminding me about the 90's

I need to stop getting new friends by buying their friendship, and start doing it the old-fashioned way, through blackmail.

Here's a Google Doc that is being created about Google+ It's titled "A Collaborative Document: (or how 120+ people wrote a book at the same time)" Despite the title, it's actually a guide being created by Google+ users on how to use Google+. And they're using Google Docs to write it, of course. This is a nice illustration of the post I made on the first day about how Google+ is making Google stronger. Read that here:

It also shows the way in which Google+ users are similar to Facebook users: when given the tools, they will contribute positively to further the service. I mention that point about Facebook's platform strategy in this post about Zuckerberg's first public response to Google+:

In the past, I've used Google Docs mainly because I wanted web access to files. I've never collaborated on it, and now I'm hooked on doing that. Google+ is making me use Google products that I formally only had a slight interest in. In the past week, I've started to toy with Blogger & Picasa. Why switch to Gmail, I used to think? Yahoo will do just fine. I've been using Gmail more and more.

Btw, welcome new users, I see the invites are open today -- read this guide for tips.

I bet map-makers are about to get really wealthy now that they have to redo all those maps to include South Sudan. (it's in the news, google it)

Hey Google+ folks!

As I bet you've noticed, we are facing pretty incredible demand for Google+ invites.

As Engineering Director of Google+, I wanted to take a moment to explain why we're growing the system slowly. First, we want to make sure our infrastructure scales so the service remains fast and reliable. Second, we want to ensure that bugs are fixed while there are still a relatively few people in the field trial.

Things are going well with the systems right now so we feel comfortable enough to open up invites for a brief period. Our goal is to double the user base in the field trial. (Sorry, we're not giving details about how many folks are in the field trial yet).

So, in a few minutes, we'll open up invites again.

We continue to throttle invites, so please don't mass invite folks as it won't work. If you invite a handful of your most important friends and family you're much more likely to get these folks into our system.

Thanks again for providing so much wonderful feedback!
