Anyone know how Google Drive works? Is it a one top-level directory, like DropBox? If so, can it be accessed by multiple Google Docs accounts (I have about 10, including at least 3 that don't play well with each other).

I've used it for a while. You can either open files as google docs and add comments that are then posted as a running conversation back and forth with other people share the doc or you can download. I like it for sharing when I want lots of reviewing in terms of comments, but if I want a doc actually edited, I still have to send it via email.

Here's the NC Women Matter newsletter with suggestions on writing letters to the editor of the N&O on topics affecting women's lives.

Nice. This is a great experiment and seems like a great feature for an on-line branch to encourage increasing women's voices. Keep us posted on the impact, please.

Haha - You mean the "Borg" - as in "Resistance is futile"?
Understand now the difference between AppsGroups and GroupsGroups... Thanks:-)

Anyone else completely underwhelmed with the "new" Google groups?

The management system has serious flaws:

- No way to see the addresses that have been "invited"
- While apparently the "add member" functionality has been returned, it doesn't work.
- There's no way to export the list of members
- I tried to see if the "old" Google groups search of the member list had been improved (it only returns a result if the search string is at the beginning of the email address or nickname), but it, too is missing

Good news: there seems to be a fairly robust comment/error reporting system. For instance when you switch back to the "old" format, there's a link to say why you're doing that.

Anyone have insight into the release date for Mailman 3? Or what else are you using for discussion groups?

Okay, three of the four above seem to be working better. I still can't find a way to export members. I'm tickled pink that Google finally was able to get a search working correctly and that we may actually be able to add folks (though I expect that's going to break down at some point relatively soon).

"The 318 files that you own and the 263 files that have been shared with you  will now be available in Drive."

Oh, criminy. Let's hope I can find things. And, no, I don't want to store those locally until I'm sure Google Docs really plays well with Word/Excel. DropBox is just fine, thank you.

What is going on with Google Drive? http://wp.me/p2hAzo-a5
Okay, this is a rant. I need to write some of this out to try to understand what's happening. Comment or not — but if you've got a lifeline, please throw it to me. The switch to Google Drive from Goog...

Still trying to diagnose some problems with sending to a Google Apps "group" which is just a forward to a Google Groups address. This may not be the same problem, but seems to be a cogent discussion of a similar one.

In my monthly attempt to figure out what this is good for, I did go look at what Robert Scoble is talking about. He mentioned (tongue in cheek) that everyone else should leave G+ so that his posts would rise to the top of search results.

Google search's preference for G+ posts was driven home to me earlier in the week when my search for "dev con raleigh" had Birgit's post about next weekend's NC DevCon 2011 as the third post. [It's now #1 (!) for "devcon raleigh".]

But does that help? or just show that there's an incredibly small amount of content posted here so that the extra points do help when something happens to match?

For for the Social Search enriching the Web Search:

With +1, Google Search Goes Truly Social — As Do Google Ads
http://techcrunch.com/2011/03/30/google-plus-one/

On Google+ people find me. I am actually glad that the pace and the discussions on Google+ slow. That I actually can arrive at the end of the stream and connect with the stream I read yesterday. Facebook & Twitter is sometimes overwhelming and in the brevity of the posts rather fleeting.

Google+ is more the enhancement of my Google centric life, I use Gmail exclusively as my e-mail client with a dozen e-mail address for receiving and sending. I use Google Reader and of course Google Search. I used Picasa before I used Flickr and will use it some more now as it's all together here on Google+. The Google+ Toolbar is ubiquitous, that's why Google+ content received faster attention than facebook or twitter.

But I have no expectation to be entirely social her except for a few close friends that are in my circles. Friends whose postings I hardly read in other SNS anymore, because they drowned out by the noise and wouldn't bubble up on facebook for what ever reason.

I tread the time when 'brands, corporations & nonprofits' will enter the Google+ space and use it also as a means to broadcast, rather then engage or be relevant.

I think the biggest hurdle for Google+ is to manage the noise. Seems they know it and bid their time to figure is out.

Just a few random thoughts.....
