"What we need, instead, is above-average growth — in fact, quite a lot of it. Even if the economy were to begin growing at a 5 percent annual rate, it would take until 2018 for it to catch up to the long-term trend."

Hard not to get a little nervous about things. :/
Leading indicators, like an index of manufacturing activity, have printed poorly, about at the levels that suggest the economy is on the brink of another recession.

Enjoying some of the UI treatment in Google+. Pushes the bar.... even if a touch laggy in places. With my dion@almaer.com google account would work though. I have so much pain revolving around dalmaer@gmail.com vs. dion@almaer.com(GAFYD).

But, great work guys!

The mobile Web version of Google+ doesn't use apple-mobile-webapp-capable? I saved the beast to the home screen and still get the bottom browser chrome.

Story
Introduction

Dion Almaer is the co-founder of Ajaxian.com, the leading source of the Ajax community. For his day job, Dion co-leads a new group at Mozilla focusing on developer tools for the Web, which is something he has been passionate about doing for years, and is excited for the opportunity! Dion has been writing rich web applications from the beginning, and has been a columnist on various topics at ONJava, TheServerSide.com, openxource.com and of course his blog at almaer.com/blog.

He enjoys writing, and speaking at events such as JavaOne, Web 2.0 Expo, Future of Web Apps, Google I/O, JavaPolis, TheServerSide Symposium, and created The Ajax Experience. He also participates on the Java Community Process expert groups, and the open source community as a whole.

He enjoys the new Internet media that allows him to connect with the community, and thus created Audible Ajax, recently launched the Open Web Podcast with other industry gurus, and founded the Google Code Review show.

If you want to keep up with him, follow along on Twitter, or FriendFeed.
