Is it just me, or have +Google+​ notifications been kind of screwy for the last day or two?

I thought it was amusing when a notification I first received this morning had 14 hours of history already, which meant it was a good 8 hours older than when I read all my notifications the night before. But then I got a little worried when I didn't get a single notification for anything at all for a good 4 hours this evening. I love you guys, I really do, but seriously, that was more than a little surprising, because taken as a whole you never shut up!

I have reached the conclusion that the best photos I shot during my day of sightseeing were the signpost to make sure we got back to the right parking garage, and this one, verifying that we picked up the correct salad dressing on the way home.

This is very cool!

All Americans are conversant in the better-known events of those first Revolutionary days—Paul Revere’s ride, the “shot heard ‘round the world,” the bloodshed at Lexington and Concord. Parker’s Revenge is more of a deep cut. It lasted only ten minutes, and just one first-person account of it exists, a spare description from a militiaman named Nathan Munroe. (“We met the [British] regulars in the bounds of Lincoln, about noon, retreating towards Boston,” it reads, in part. “We fired on them, and continued to do so until they met their reinforcements in Lexington.”)
 
Led by archaeologist Meg Watters, the Parkers Revenge Project reconstructed a crucial battle on the first day of the Revolutionary War.

I rather enjoy listening to that poor docent struggling to explain tanks.

But very cool.

Food for thought.

Factory jobs are gone. Barista jobs are here to stay. It’s time to recognize that and pay people accordingly.

Here's a quote for +Mz Maau:
"You could get away with anything, if you made it fluffy and pink enough. You could destroy the whole world, as long as you were willing to cover it in glitter first."
I don’t have many memories from before I was six. I don’t think most people do. We have the idea of memories, the stories our families have told us about how cute we were when we were little, the r…

Holy COW Elephant! An Image Jackpot!

The New York Public Library uploaded nearly 200,000 public domain free images in early January!

The New York Public Library just released a treasure trove of digitized public domain images, featuring epic poetry from the 11th century to photographs of used car lots in Columbus, Ohio from the 1930s. Over 180,000 manuscripts, maps, photographs, sheet music, lithographs, postcards, and other images were released online Wednesday in incredibly high resolution, and are available to download using the library's user-friendly visualization tool. It's a nostalgist's dream come true.

Hah! Take that, price gougers!
 
For those who need/care about inexpensive epinephrine autoinjectors, CVS is now offering a generic two-pack for $110 as compared to Mylan's $650 list price.
Drugstore chain is selling a treatment for life-threatening allergies at roughly a sixth of the price of the EpiPen.

It's cool that Adrenoclick makes their own generic. :) They were an EpiPen competitor that most people did not know of. Now if only docs prescribe it more!

I wish I had any money to throw to Techdirt. But since I don't, I'm boosting the signal some more.
 
Thought I'd signal boost this.  Techdirt does important work

Likewise. After all, 1971 beats 1978 - Ray Tomlinson FTW.
