Many examples prove: G+ will be shut down (some day). As any cloud-based service will be (some day).

Therefore, I discontinue my (very low) engagement on this platform as well.

Please stay tuned on my private web page that probably will be completely re-done within the next months. Decentralization is the key and I invest work only in self-hosted products where data belongs to me and I am not the product being sold.

So long and thanks for the fish.

How am I able to provide an very easy way to start a hangout with a specific person on an Android device?

I could not find anything simpler than starting G+ app, heading for the hangout menu (kinda hidden), start typing the name until it is displayed, and start the hangout. Seems a bit complicated for a non-tech-savvy person using an Android tablet ...

Hi Karl! What about using a contact widget and selecting the hangouts icon?

Please add papers by writing them :-)
 
There is a new page on Worg for papers about (or just quoting) Org-mode:
http://orgmode.org/worg/org-papers.html

Thanks to Karl Voit for this!

Monthly backup is on my schedule: plugging in external hard disk, starting #TimeMachine on my #OSX. Got error message with no real description or reason.

Since then, all old backups are inaccessible.

So much for reliability.

Hi all!

Lifelogging https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifelogging is somewhat related to Quantified Self https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantified_Self

I personally started Lifelogging during my PhD thesis in 2011 where I looked into Personal Information Management (http://tagstore.org).

I am very concerned about privacy and like to re-gain my data from the cloud onto my computer(s). For this purpose I created Memacs https://github.com/novoid/Memacs which integrates things like emails, photographs, tweets, text messages, phone calls, git/SVN commits, usenet postings, web page visits, ... into my GNU/Emacs Org-mode calendar.

For basic usage of the Memacs modules, you don't need any Python knowledge at all :-)

Can anyone tell me when there will be the possibility to start a video chat from the G+ Android app?

Great metaphor! Think about it!
 
#pim2012 The “Home” metaphor for the current state of Personal Information Management.

• On the Web: We are all homeless, we only rent from other people places to store our information.
• About privacy: It’s like being in the marketplace all day long.
• About information silos: It’s like being at a different home for lunch, a different home to sleep in, etc.• On customizing information management: We cannot make personalized choices about how we want our house to be, because it is decided by those who rent it to us.

(paraphrasing...)
—Manas.

Had to get rid of the #Android G+ app once again: doesn't let me share any content with other Android apps and uses up >25MB of internal space so that syncing data stopped working (again). Sorry guys, that's not the spirit ...

These photographs by the Google car, and from Google Street View, are blowing my mind.

There's something so raw about them. Each of the random moments which are captured are so entirely natural, and human, and give us a glimpse into our world, as a whole. The photos here have been curated into by Jon Rafman an exhibit and book which you can find here: http://9-eyes.com/

Wow, just wow.

Introduction
2013-03: I was using G+ not that intense and I am discontinuing using it completely since it will be shut down (some day). Stay tuned on my private web page.

2013-08: My decision not to use G+ (see above) was a personal one. However, with the evidence that US agencies have access to basically everything stored by US companies, I do think that using Facebook, G+, and such is no longer an option for you and me. Please do not give them all of your contacts or content.
