The next Startup Weekend Glasgow will run on the 25-27th October 2013.

This year we're running on a theme of Environmental Sustainability and Clean Technology. Prizes will be awarded for startups with the greatest potential to make a positive environmental impact both locally and globally. We are strongly aligned with the Cleanweb movement: using information technology to drive massive improvements in global sustainability, economic prosperity, and human well-being.

Well I don't know what they did, but the G+ UI is now several orders of magnitude faster for me.

Hello Google+!

Everyday I'm stoked to jump online and be 1 of 4 Google+ Community Managers engaging with this rockin' community! What's a day in the life of a Community Manager on Google+? We respond to +mentions (as many as we can, but can't always get to 'em all), listen to feedback in Hangouts/Discuss Forum/and alllll over Google+, and comment and re-share awesome content we find in the Stream! Then every Thursday we do a Google+ Community Report that we share with the Product and Engineering team so they know what'sup.

I thought it'd also helpful to introduce you to the Community Management Team for Google. They not only advocate for the users within Google+, but also for their products. These community pros are here to help, and want to get to know you!

drum roll please...

IMPORTANT: Rather than emailing or messaging me or any other random Googler, if you have any issues or suggestions or feedback, please remember this is not a final release of the product. You are 'field testing' it so be patient & follow this:

1- read the list of known issues: http://goo.gl/Xb8VE
2- carefully read Google+ official help here: http://goo.gl/okkM1
3- if you don't find it there, then submit your feedback here: http://goo.gl/WywHn

A few Google+ tips:
- You can click on profile pictures to rotate through them. Nice find by +MG Siegler on that one.
- In the stream, you can click 'j' to navigate down to the next item or 'k' to navigate up. I think it's the same keys that Gmail uses, which is probably in turn because +Paul Buchheit uses vi and created Gmail. :)
- If you're sharing a post with a small circle of people, you can prevent resharing. Click the arrow at the top-right of the post and choose "Disable reshare."
- If you're looking for more fun things in your stream, the "Incoming" stream is stuff from people who are sharing with you, but who you haven't added to a circle.
- One great one from +Frederic Lardinois is that "there is some basic text formatting, too: (*)bold(*), (_)italics(_) and (-)strike-through(-) are the ones I've noticed so far."
