Anyone have any advice on adopting a rescue dog? I feel like things have changed so much since I was young. There are so many pet rescue organizations in this area that I'm overwhelmed. We also have specific pet needs, so it's not just a matter of showing up at a pound, choosing a mutt with the sweetest face and going home. Any help and advice is appreciated.

10-month-old Shepherd mix. Mix of what? No idea. She's a bit on the small sider side at 35 pounds, and our vet doesn't think she'll grow too much more. But I'm sure she's the smartest, friendliest, cutest pup out there (I may be a tiny bit biased). I really liked working with WARL. It may not be the place where you find the dog that's right for you (I know you had concerns about allergies, etc.) But I liked their flexibility and friendliness. No need to wait until scheduled adoption events, which worked well for our schedule. They seem to do a good job at keeping the dogs healthy (or getting them back to good health). May be a place to start the search, if you haven't already.

It never ceases to amaze me how many nonprofits and government entities are using radically outdated web and online technology. It's not often a problem of budget that has caused them to fall behind, but a problem of organizational will to keep innovating.

Well, that, and the fact that a lot of donors are older and less tech-savvy as users, so innovation for the organization has to be coupled with extreme ease of use for constituents. It's quite a challenge, but I think it can be met.

I think that institutional culture (also known as blinders) keep innovation from truly taking off. It takes an executive who has a lot of guts, and little fear of change, who can institute the culture of continuous innovation.

Unfortunately for government, authority trumps innovation. The day that broad acceptance of social networking, transparency, and innovation takes hold in government should be a day we will always seem to look forward to.

Soon I can share everything I'm doing all the time with all my Facebook friends. Thus eliminating any need to actually talk to anyone ever.

Why does the f8 logo look a bit like that of the Dharma Initiative? Hm?

How does a man remain on death row for 20 years? Seems like a stay of execution is grossly insufficient if Troy Davis is innocent.

I agree; the death penalty itself isn't the root problem. The wrongful prosecution is the real issue. Putting an innocent person in prison for life isn't any better than executing one.

I didn't really think that animated gifs would persist this long beyond LiveJournal icons, but Google+ seems to have brought them back into vogue.

Google+ Tip for the day: Stop treating Google+ like Facebook.

When I got my Google+ invitation, I was already itching to shed my Facebook profile. I still feel that way, but I’m starting to realize something really surprising (at least for me): I don’t think Google is my Facebook stand-in. I think Google is far more than a measly “social network,” and that’s why some of my Facebook friends who are migrating over right now seem to be, as they say on the Internet, “doing it wrong.”

I've been a devoted Googlephile for many years, so if Google wanted me to use G+ instead of Facebook, it was gonna happen -- unless they really goofed it up, of course (I'm still not entirely over my breakup with Wave, Google -- but at least I've stopped leaving those creepy voicemails, right?). The push and pull factors were there. They were obvious: Facebook is for “moms” and spam robots -- Google was going to be my new social network.

But something didn't feel quite right about treating my Google+ profile like my Facebook profile, nor treating my Circles like the Facebook social groups I wished I'd always had. There was content everywhere, written by people I’d heard of -- and many I hadn’t. Something about this space was very different than anything Facebook has ever allowed me to experience. It felt like something else, something... bigger, maybe more important. Something collaborative, perhaps. How very Google!

My friends, however, don’t seem to be having the same Google+ experience I am. My tendency so far has been to add as many people with as many interesting views as possible to my Circles, and then to read voraciously and respond all over the place. Meanwhile, my real-life friends are complaining that there’s not enough content to appease them, and I’m the only one dominating their Streams. Why is this happening for them? I think it comes from a fundamental set of expectations about moving from Facebook to Google+. People are treating their Google+ accounts just like Facebook accounts. And I think that’s a doomed approach.

Here is how I think Google+ can be most fully enjoyed and utilized, at this early stage:

Think about what you use Facebook for. If it’s for keeping up with old friends and for keeping up with current, local friends, great. You can use Google+ for that, and it’s definitely got a leg up on Facebook for filtering content.

Interact with content created by users you don’t know personally. If you don’t follow people you don’t already know, you’re going to get bored, and not just because your friends aren’t all here yet. You’ll get bored even after they’ve all arrived. Why do you think Facebook started implementing games and applications? Well, to make money, obviously, but what was the draw for the userbase? I’m willing to bet Facebook figured out that simply reading your friends’ thoughts all day long gets old, and let’s be honest: very few of us have enough friends with enough interesting posts to keep us engaged.

If you like the social games on Facebook, well...you’re not really my target audience. Sorry. For the rest of you -- if you don’t like how Facebook allowed third party junk to start bombarding you with game requests and access to your information, embrace its absence here so far!

I realize that at some point, developers may come up with cool ways to implement games on Google+, but I expect that Google will have learned from the clunky, disorganized, and downright invasive way developers approached this in Facebook. And the best way to keep Google+ rich in content and devoid of lame, invasive apps is to let go of your old ideas about what it means to be on a social network.
