Are +The Onion really erecting a paywall, or is this a parody of horrible paywall popovers?

We'd still love your feedback as an Android user - the app helps with event discovery as well, so you don't have to be in the room at a conference for it to make sense from a testing point of view.

I pressed the wrong button at some point and now I have two Google+ accounts - this one, and one for my @lanyrd.com Google Apps account.

I want to get rid of the @lanyrd.com one (so people don't add the wrong "me" to their circles)... but when I go to delete that Google+ account it warns me that "You won't be able to use the "Sign in with Google" button to log in to third-party apps."

This is no good, because I use "Sign in with Google" with that account for a bunch of important tools such as Trello.

Am I completely stuck here?

In the settings (https://www.google.com/settings/plus) under profile you can make the profile invisible in search results. - not very helpful: I searched for "invisible" and came up with nothing.

The option is marked "Help others discover my profile in search results." if you're looking for it; and you should deselect it.

+Simon Willison an option available for my many Google accounts was simply slapping a company logo over my image - so if you mail me at @mediauk.com you get my avatar, but a +Media UK logo over it. That helps for things like hangouts and others - so others know which is the 'right' account. (I only have one G+ account, though, these days.)

We added a speaker directory to Lanyrd last week and it includes a well-populated Python speakers section - take a look.

There's a nice off-leash dog area tucked away at the eastern end of the park.

The largest marine mammals hospital in the world, with capacity for up to 300 patients - mostly elephant seals, sea lions and harbour seals. They have a very impressive volunteer program that handles the majority of the daily animal care.

Seriously creative cocktail menu - with plenty of interesting twists on the classics. I particularly enjoyed the 8 Rum Mai Tai on my last visit - a beautifully balanced version of a drink that is often kind of awful. They also now do a flight of Manhattans.

Really great liquor selection - they focus on stocking bottles that you don't get in regular convenience stores.

Great coffee (they roast their own beans) in a nice quiet corner of Hayes Valley. Good for getting some work done in the middle of the day - they have wifi and a few tables,
