COMMUNITY NOTE ... asking for minor help from members please.

a LITTLE too much product advertising is sneaking in, and i am beginning to reject repeat submissions that are getting "flagged" as spam by the system.

basically, when logging into the community, owners are presented a list of posts flagged as potential spam, and overall it does a very good job !

it honestly only happens a couple times a month, and in general i have no problems with people exposing products for other members to check out, but ... i think it is MUCH more effective,  believeable, and respectful of other community members if reviews are done in a hands on manner, indicating clearly that you have used the product !

most people just don't buy into products splashed at them on a computer screen anyways, they go and do some research, ask friends what they use, you know ... they go find out about the product for themselves, OR from people they trust.

simply splashing product posts in the community creates noise everyone has to deal with, and nothing to do with effective product marketing, so ...

PLEASE respect the community members, and lets make sure ALL product posts follow a personal review format, that clearly indicates you actually use the product ... this is a HANDS ON community of people who really ultralight backpack, so i believe everyone benefits in the end by following this one simple rule.

you have FULL permission to reject repeated violators of this policy, thank you very much for being awesome, happy trails, jeff :)

HOME INSPECTIONS ... we got your back !
REPORTING ... what we do using +Google Glass !

+Inspect.Net, Inc. has been a Google Glass beta-tested since the very beginning ... and now we are ready to reveal the results of our efforts, this sample report illustrating the critical information we provide to our clients.

Buying a house ... one of the biggest, most stressful events in a person's life !!!

WE take that stress out by providing Full & Complete Disclosure of buildings & structures ... NOT fluffy realtor-type information, detailing freshly painted walls, or new carpet, but real meat & potatoes like the discovery of active plumbing leaks, foundations undermined by soil erosion, and like in this case owner-modified pre-engineered attic framing trusses.

Information ... MORE important than money, with an emphasis on making sure ALL issues are properly disclosed to ALL parties.

Sample report ... ALL data and images collected are from Google Glass, have a look and we think you'll also conclude it is a very good excellent tool for field data collection.

Truth & Trust ... it's not just what we deliver, it's who we are !!!

QUESTION ... anyone seen this yet on +Google Glass ?
1. triple vignette ?
2. stacked cards ?
3. vignettes inside cards ?

please comment on original post, migrating to my google apps for business account ... thank you.

ping : +Allen Firstenberg +Noble Ackerson +Cecilia Abadie 
CARDS ... very rare triple vignette, how #intriguing  ;)

i've been experiencing lots of "different behavior" on +Google Glass lately ...

this doesn't bother me, it's part of the product development lifecycle, and i signed up as a beta-tester, promising to use & report back, but ...

what the heck is going on here ... any ideas anyone ???

there are three distinct vignettes sitting on top of at least one additional card with label(s) "now" and "recent" ... this is the EXACT design i have in mind for my use case, presenting multiple cards along the top to display information & tips for home inspectors while performing an inspection.

any thoughts on :

1. triple vignette
2. multiple stacked cards ?

this is different than a normal "stack" with multiple pages in the stack, this is multiple cards all being displayed at once ... or am i completely looking at this wrong, and there is a simple answer i'm missing ?

BOND ... not me, but a little ol' bond market #malaise  ;(

"More than $450 billion has been wiped out across global bond markets in the past few weeks and, for many people, there doesn't seem to be any particular reason why."

wah, market loses $450B ... NO ONE knows why ...  #WAH  !!!

WHOA ... +Google Glass is actually IN the #movies  ???

screenshot of the just released movie "Mockingjay: Burn" from the amazing creative talents of +Kristen Brancaccio & +Leo Kei Angelos !!!

here is a SUMMARY list of posts relating to the project, that not only included portraying Google Glass in a movie, it actually uses Google Glass for some footage included in the movie itself ... now THAT is a first as far as i know, and i am honored to have been invited by Leo to participate in this amazing project.

have a look at what a couple young creative talents, motivated actors, and a tiny budget can create ... this is why i believe the future of movie making is going to become much more fractured.

project summary list :

actual movie :
first trailer :
second trailer :
sneak peek :
roll call :
first clip reel :
behind the scenes (BTS) :
team photo :
major teamwork :
makeup :
second film clip :

perhaps other movie makers will be inspired to create movies using Google Glass ... but for now enjoy this one all you #explorers  :)

special thanks to Leo & Kristen, really enjoyed ... do it again ;)

special mentions : +Kimberly Ann Graham (you wanted a badass katniss, you got it!), +Stephan Bollinger (sensei extraordinaire), and +Mia Suh (i know you wanted to see this, it's finally here ;)
