Heading up to TriConf tomorrow to meet some local tech compatriots! Planning to leave around 7:30am and get back around 5pm if anyone's interested.

Just this morning I was getting tired of some Ubuntu bugs and thinking that eventually I'd switch to a Mac. Now, I'm not sure I can buy an Apple product again for quite some time. I respected Apple for designing a superior product and beating the competition to market by such a wide margin, but they're losing all those points and more by trying to sue the competition out of the picture.

Anyone know of a reason why this isn't as despicable as it seems?

SOPA supporters take note: piracy indicates you're not providing the right service (aka: adapt, don't legislate).

G+ Circles in Practice

The circles in G+ are a big draw. I think what got me started actually using G+ was the ability to organize my contacts into groups that are meaningful to me. That was just inherently satisfying. But I'm starting to wonder: are some ways of setting up circles more useful than others?

So far circles have two major purposes -- following and sharing -- with the potential to be at odds. Useful circles for following might be topical (e.g. work-related, hobby-related, etc.). But using topical circles for sharing might unnecessarily limit my audience and prevent people from moving from one circle in my life to another.

For example, I really enjoy playing tabletop games. I could create a game circle, and only share game events/ideas/stories with those people. But that would mean my friends and colleagues might not see me post about games, might not realize that I'm a fan, and might not prompt me to expand my circle.

Sharing is the lifeblood of social networks. If we define our circles too tightly, could we cut off the circulation?

I'd be curious to hear what people have tried, liked, and disliked!

Circles Shmircles. I'm just annoyed that I have two social network sites to keep track of now.
