I sort of can't get over the fact that Facebook tried multi-column and gave up on it because it didn't work, leading to a spate of articles praising it for being more like google+ in its single-columnness... and then google+ surprisingly goes multicolumn?
Not only is it repeating Facebook's mistake after Facebook learned better; it's doing so after explicit praise for the single-column feature!
Bizarre times we live in...
