I thought of +Nathan Williams as I was catching up on listening to the +Arkus, Inc. Cloudfocus Weekly podcast last night. They have an "App Pick of the Week," where each of the two hosts picks an iOS, Salesforce or standalone Web app to feature.  +Justin Edelstein picked Hipmunk for iOS, acknowledging that +Jason Atwood had previously picked their web app and speaks very highly of them. But then Jason walks Justin through a search and the charted price feature of Google Flights. I thought you and your colleagues might enjoy it - the episode is here: http://www.arkusinc.com/archive/2014/speaking-out-episode-181-of-cloudfocus-weekly and the Pick of the Week segment starts at 32:45.

Excellent. It's great when our random shoveling of bits gets noticed!

Even cooler, I think, is picking a different axis - once you're in the full flights UI, pick your origin and dates but leave the destination blank, and then click on the map - you can see the (cheapest) prices of every destination on the map.

My modest contribution to the Salesforce Foundation Nonprofit Starter Pack is featured in a blog post today.
Community contributions to the Nonprofit Starter Pack's source code are now even easier to submit.

Enjoying my barleywine favor from the wedding of +Nathan Williams and +Cana Williams a year and two days ago. What a fine occasion & party that was! I'm looking forward to another cousin's wedding this weekend, especially since the intervening family gatherings have been funerals for Nathan's step-father and our mutual grandmother.

But I doubt the beer at this wedding will be as good as at that wedding. Cana, I hope you sampled some of this tasty stuff! Does one really hurt? And anyway, the genetics suggest that this kid will have brain capacity to spare. Will Jessica and I see one or both of you in weird ol' Austin?

As seen over on that other social network, we'll all be there, and are looking forward to seeing you.

I'm glad you're enjoying the beer! I was pleased with how it had aged; my only minor quibble was that the weather on our anniversary was freakishly hot, and a bit less conducive to enjoying a strong beer.

Maybe it's the time, but am lacking enthusiasm for another social network, but feel like I should get to know what's going on. I've been holding out until I could join with my GApps account.

If I wanted a Linux-only laptop, this seems like a good choice. How's running a Windows VM inside of Ubuntu working these days?

Great and thorough review of my dream tablet. I keep seeing these deep discounts on first-gen Android tablets, and it's tempting, but the tech moves so fast.

Holy crap - I'd long ago lost whatever professional respect I might've once had for Komen, but this just strikes me as ridiculously dumb. I mean, even if you grant them (and I don't) that you should let political pressure dictate drastic changes to your fact- and science-based mission delivery programs, do you really think that there are more anti-abortion people in their giving and service constituency than there are pro-choice folks? I mean, for an organization that seems to value money-grubbing above all else, this seems like a spectacularly stupid and counter-productive move.

Lots of new adds on Google+ today, but not sure why. Seems to be mostly NP Tech folk - who are all you nice folks, and why have you added me? I haven't exactly been active here. Maybe now that my better Android phone is fixed, I will be.

This is a really terrific post about #Occupy. This is what good, honest reporting and commentary looks like.
Ivan Boothe originally shared:
 
Some more writing about Occupy Wall Street (and Occupy Philly, where I've been involved). I highlight some of the constructive criticism surrounding the Occupy encampments, in particular as it relates to anti-racism and racial justice.
