"I want to write a novel," is one of those dreamy phrases lost somewhere between good intentions and procrastination. Many people write novels just because it takes their mind away to an alternate un...

One of the "real events" that inspired this movie was my brother's suicide. Despite how difficult it is to watch (especially near the end), it is a great movie and offers important talking points.
Four teens connected by a live streaming site struggle to balance their digital drama and offline lives, but a tragedy causes them to reconsider what connects them.

I've been a lurker for awhile. But, I've benefited from other G+ers publicly putting themselves out there.

I had to share this because this post sums up why I'm on here.

Sure, go ahead and try to "add value" to my stream. I appreciate your +Tom Anderson expertise. But, I also appreciate the cute video of your +Michael Baker son trying to whistle and your +Emily Evans inspirational photos of your delicious vegan dishes. Thank you +M Sinclair Stevens for your elegant words that describe how I feel. :) You +Cassandra Roberts "add value" to my stream by sharing parts of your life with me. I appreciate that human connection +Brian Chambers and +Lynda Giddens .

I like getting to know you. I like quirky people. :-) May I ask...

Why are YOU on here?

Judging You by What You Do, Not Who You Are
I don't want to know your name. I don't want to know your race, your gender, your age, height, or weight. I don't want to know the color of your eyes. I don't want to know your marital status, where you live, or what diseases you have. I don't want to dismiss you as part of that group, some ~ism, or that alien other.

I want a chance to know you before I make that judgment.

So don't come to me with a seal of approval from your little group, from your private club. Don't hold up your litmus test. I don't want to know whether you're an atheist or a Dominionist. I don't want to know who you voted for. I don't want to know your political views on global warming, gay rights, or abortion.

Not yet. Not first thing.

I want your words. I want your ideas. I want your observations. I want you to tell me the reason why. Why you liked that movie. Why you eat bacon on ice cream. Why you can't support my line of reasoning.

And the other stuff, it will come out naturally. Our relationship will evolve. Trust will grow (or be broken). We will confide more and more with each other. Or we'll go our separate ways. We will encourage. We will disappoint. We'll get into fights. We'll comfort.

Sharing demographic traits provides an immediate but false sense of intimacy. Your badge, your name means nothing to me. I want to peel away the layers and discover.

If Isaiah Mustafa wore the "G" and Matthew McConaughey wore the "gle," then I doubt this would have been such a huge deal. :-)
Tom Anderson originally shared:
 
Yesterday I wrote a little bit about public opinion, and how it's a "filter" for most people -- an idea that grows and becomes popular tells us what to pay attention to. Popular opinion affects our opinion and subconsciously (some might say insidiously) influences our behavior. Google is an amazing company. If the average non-techie knew even 1% of the things going on behind the scenes, they'd be floored. But the average Joe does not know. My sense is that Google was never truly seen as an "exciting" or "sexy" company to the average Joe.

Yes, technical people admired Google. But to non-techies, Google just works. It does what you want it do. And its design and utility is so straightforward and, well, utilitarian, it's kinda just "there." You use electricity everyday -- it's absolutely critical to everything you do, but you don't think much about the company that supplies the power to you.

With Google+, we're in the beginning phases of a sea change. G+ is going to affect the way people appreciate and think about Google. Put simply, G+ is going to make Google "sexy" to the average person. Pundits & investors have already recognized the excitement around this new "Google." That's where that $45 billion dollar increase in market cap just came from. (http://tcrn.ch/qHca93) And that stock market excitement is forming a virtuous circle with the excitement of the G+ project itself.

The good feeling for Google is going to grow. It's going to spread beyond tech circles, and Google may have something of the Apple aura, if it can continue down this path. People are going to love Google like they never loved it before. People are going to hang on their product announcements the way they never did before. Larry Page and Sergey, if they so choose, will start to be seen more like a Steve Jobs than a Bill Gates. And all of this is not just because G+ is addicting (which it is). It's because G+ is about people and community. It's a celebration of our very existence, in a more obvious way than "organizing the world's information" ever was.

Google is sexy now. And I'm loving it.

P.S. If you're interested in reading about some of the amazing things "behind the scenes" at Google, I'd reccommend you pick up Steven Levy's "In the Plex". (http://amzn.to/ovS5Rr) It's an important book, at an important time. Levy has followed the Google story since 1999. and has had uncommon access to people throughout every level of the company.

This article is beautiful, inspiring, worth a read, and I'd love to know if you've done any of these things and what the experience was like! :-)
