If someone has a Google account accessed by a Gmail address and another Google account accessed by a Google Apps address, which one should be used to create and maintain a Google+ profile? I've put forward an argument that unless there is a compelling reasons to do otherwise, I'd be minded to use the Gmail account rather than the Google Apps account.
If someone has multiple Google accounts, some with Gmail addresses and others with Google Apps addresses, which one should be used to create and maintain a Google+ profile? A few pointers.

Google+ is and will remain the main social media platform of my choice, yet I am currently changing the ways I use and interact on Google+. By the end of serendipity, I mean the diminishing likelihood of meeting and finding interesting people and things on Google+ by happy chance, and it points to a set of problems on Google+. 

The woes afflicting Google+ can be summarized in one word: spam. Functions and tools on Google+ that facilitated discovery of Google+ profiles, pages, and posts, such as shared circles, communities, events, as well as What’s hot and Nearby streams are vulnerable to spam.

Instead of looking forward to chance meetings on Google+, I sometimes dread to see what Google recommends to me, or what I find on communities, and I am constantly gardening my profile, weeding out the spammers and other undesirables, often blocking profiles and pages in the process.

So what does this mean, if you are embarking on Google+? The general piece of advice that I would give is to be very selective about whom or what you add to your circles, and be prepared to remove profiles and pages quite readily, since the Google+ entities you follow are going to determine what you see on your home stream. Do not necessarily add Google+ profiles and pages just because Google recommends them to you.

The likelihood of meeting and finding interesting people and things on Google+ by happy chance has decreased over time. Spam is at the heart of the issue, and functions that aid content discovery have been abused by spammers. This article suggests some ways of countering that tendency.

If one characteristic of the modern state is an effective tax collection, then Greece seems like a pre-modern state. Whatever happens next with Greece, it will have to become an effective modern state that can collect taxes and balance the books.

Another picture of a robin in Wimbledon Common. I've created many variations on this image, as the linked page shows: I've used smartphone apps on Nexus 5 and online photo editing tools on my Chromebook.

I think it's going to be an expanded Gatwick, but I live close to the flight path, so I'm biased.

Previous articles on this issue:
➤ Airports in London: build, expand, or do nothing? (20 January 2012) - https://www.wasaweb.net/en/articles/random-thoughts-airports-in-London.html
➤ No Heathrow expansion! (4 December 2008) - https://www.wasaweb.net/en/articles/UK-news-no-Heathrow-expansion.html
The next UK government will have to make a decision on airport capacity in London and the south east soon after assuming power. A commission is going to recommend an expansion of either Heathrow or Gatwick. Whatever the government decides, it will invite criticisms.

Google+ page for wasaweb.net (English)
Introduction
Welcome!

This is a Google+ page for the English version of wasaweb.net, and mainly distributes site updates by linking to the newly created pages on the site. I am hoping this Google+ page will serve as a place of communication, albeit subsidiary to the site.

The site is a personal collage, or an eclectic mixture of contents, varying from articles on news and current affairs to early modern history to photographs and snapshots. There are also stock images (cover photos, wallpapers) for non-commercial use. For more about me, please read this short bio.
