I've been looking at this picture all morning, and I can't stop. It inspires me.

I know it's "just" a bunch of rocks and dirt, but it's in high definition, in colour, and on the surface of Mars.

Thank you, +NASA and +NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory for reminding us humans that we're capable of doing truly incredible things.

And for the science. Thank you for the science.

...SCIENCE!

Hmm, so far it's like Facebook but with all nerds. I think I could get into this.

Not sure about this whole Sparks business. Lacks context. E.g. Search for "Ruby", get posts about Ruby (the language), but also Pokémon Ruby, a dog called Ruby that went missing, etc. :/

Will people post to Google+ when they already post to Twitter and Facebook? Not sure I will.

I see a few instances of the same posts coming through multiple channels, but not often. I find G+ is more about interests than friends (facebook) and suited to longer conversations, which twitter doesn't really do well. As a result, the same starting point can go in different directions.
