At first I was having fun with the Circles concept but as the number of people I connect to increase I've discovered reorganizing my circles is very difficult.

Adding a circle to a circle would be pretty fly.

Ever wonder how Bing thinks about the relevance of answers in relation to web links? Read newly published post by Jan:

This poll obviously has its biases (the biggest danger in any kind of poll), but its interesting to see the results nonetheless.

Thought this was a great deck. Google+ could become very disruptive to very established companies like Microsoft and even Facebook.
Tom Anderson originally shared:
 
"What G+ is really about (pst!!! it's not social") -- +Vincent Wong Believe it? Go here http://bit.ly/qfHKZQ and see his G+ photo album that argues the case. (Just click the first photo.) As a subtle counterpoint, or maybe an attenuation, it reminds me of one of my first posts here: http://bit.ly/o9NC7N People continue to talk about G+ being a Twitter & Facebook killer, but if that happens, that's besides the point. G+ is something new and inspires its own behavior & userbase. That said, can you guess who Vincent Wong thinks should be worried about G+?

Microsoft and "rapidly" on the same sentence is just funny. MSFT won't go the cloud or anything else fast (e.g. it won't go "irrelevant" or "broke" fast either). It will go wherever it goes with a diversified portfolio of products and with each and every P&L center hedging their bets. It won't move fast not because it cannot, but because it is exceedingly well managed by MBA types holding degrees from the best places on Earth. The types that demand a "deep-red sea", full of blood, to determine if it worth the next billion dollars, a complete opportunity cost study and impact on current revenue streams. Microsoft engineering has nothing to do with this, this is about leadership, vision and tolerance to risk and how it permeates the whole company. As for the press and pundits, they're typically after personal relevance, not reality.
