When Mike Gillis was announced as the GM for the Canucks I had never heard of him and was uncertain where the Canucks were heading. After a few years of watching him make player moves and quarterback the organization, I can safely say it was a wise decision. His character is infused throughout and how they are dealing with the tragic Rick Rypien situation exemplifies what a terrific organization the Canucks have become. Oddly enough I find myself feeling proud of the slogan 'We are all Canucks'.

Google+ may look a lot like other social networks where we've participated before, but it's not a product in isolation. Every piece has been designed to help push the industry in a new direction of interoperability and selective sharing. Edd Dumbill of O'Reilly gets it and breaks it down.

Much of the power of Google+ becoming the social backbone comes from intelligent focus on standards, from people who have pushed for standards long before they joined Google - helping move the industry from the inside out. Read the article.

This article nails it on the head for me when I stop and think about my challenges in attempting to order my networks in Google+. I think the notion behind groups for consumption versus those I want to share and publish to are spot on.

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.

I have committed to myself that I will remain positive about the great performance of my current AAPL investment. I will not lament the fact that I owned 1,000 shares at $13 back in 2002.

Apple just officially announced that OS X Lion will launch tomorrow. Now I just need to keep listening and hopefully they also drop the news that an updated MacBook Air will be shipping soon.

The amazing part is that it's perfectly adequate for everything I need from it. I use it for 9-10 hours every day and it just keeps on trucking. But it feels like a clunker in comparison to the svelte Air. I'm especially jealous of the major strides in battery life.
