My inclination is to stop sharing publicly after this post (at least for awhile). Any thoughts on the relative merits of sharing with "Extended Circles" vs. just "My Circles"?

My Circles seems more like it.

Imagining the primitive version of West Side Story:

"All the nice young men in our village... But, no, you have to choose the Neanderthal."

So as I discovered as well, you can't even install the G+ iPhone App on an iPad. A crushing disappointment, but nothing that a little patience and time won't solve.

I am sure the iPad app isn't too far away. Unless they take the stupid stance that Facebook did regarding the iPad.

Boston Globe technology columnist +Hiawatha Bray also sees Google+ as a Next-Gen Twitter:

"Google+ works much like Twitter. You don’t have to friend people. Just add them to a circle and follow their message postings. Already, I have dozens of strangers following my messages. I can block them if I choose or add them to a circle and begin following them.

Forget Twitter’s notorious 140-character limit on message length. Google+ lets your posts go long. You can include videos, photos, or audio files, just as you would in a Facebook posting."

Just conjecture, but I suspect that within a few months there will be a trend of individuals (not so sure about companies) giving up their Twitter accounts and moving to Google+ for the enhanced flexibility. Too early to tell how big this trend will be (Please note: I am not predicting the demise of Twitter).
Admittedly, I am not a good test case since I stopped tweeting about a year ago (for a variety of reasons), but I can't see going back after experiencing this much richer experience.

One of my favorite chess photos of me. Not for chess reasons - I'm actually in the process of being crushed by FM Paul MacIntyre...

...but instead, because this was taken more than 3 months before I even had an initial conversation with my current employer.

Surely not a new perspective, but one day in, my initial impression is that Google+ is an enhanced version of Twitter, more than a Facebook replacement.

I have the advantage of never having had a FB account, so not quite so bad for me. At the end of the day, you are right that a social network is just a social network. But then again, how long has it been since you and I had our last e-mail conversation (at least a year I think)?

Been revisiting my youth of late thanks to this site.

"It's so easy to laugh
it's so easy to hate
it takes strength to be gentle and kind"

Indeed.
