+Tamra Thacker I'm sharing this for you. +Louis Gray Any way we might have the capability of creating (in G+) a circle of people we used to follow in Google Reader (before sharing was murdered) but ONLY seeing the things they +1'd and shared to G+ without seeing all their "social network" status updates? (That was a long sentence. Hopefully it made sense.) Do you think that will be a possibility in the future? I think lots of people would like to separate out status updates and shared posts.
With today's news out on Google Reader getting a new design and the ability to share to Google+, I finally have some breathing room to blog a bit and talk about the progression. Reader is such an important product to me as a user, that I'd probably give up Gmail first if forced to choose. I once said I wouldn't take $25k to give up Reader. I'm glad Reader is able to play a part in Google+, and working with +Mihai Parparita and +Alan Green and others on this product is a privilege. Looking forward to all your shares.
I think it's totally worth making it yourself if it's cheaper and/or better, but you also have to include time cost as well. This is why I've given up on cooking with fresh fava beans: they take FOREVER to prep, and frozen ones are just as good.
+Afton Parker I'll be blogging about it sometime this week. I'll let you know when I post it. Loved it! I might try to recruit people to do it with me next year. I could have used some company for the last half.
Upcoming lectureship will highlight Dr. Calne, the surgeon who performed "the world’s first successful combined stomach, intestine, pancreas, liver, and kidney cluster transplant." Dang. That was one lucky transplant patient.
I have a Q-Tip song stuck in my mind. First time in weeks that the song stuck in my head isn't from the kids' CD, since Liam whines and fusses in the car unless we turn it on. Who knew a 9-month old could be so bossy and opinionated?? Regardless, thank you Q-Tip. It's a nice change.
I have a friend who posts on Facebook whatever annoying song is stuck in his head, which then gets it stuck in all our heads. Not cool. I actually started singing a kids song JUST to erase the song he posted. I'm ready to de-friend him.
