I'm switching to a new account in anticipation of an eventual legal name change with marriage. You can now find me as Simone Collins on Google+; this account will no longer be active.

I cannot express how refreshed I feel to see more 'traditional' institutions become comfortable with making information available for free. Huzzah!

"The Academic Senate of the University of California passed an Open Access Policy on July 24, 2013, ensuring that future research articles authored by faculty at all 10 campuses of UC will be made available to the public at no charge."

+Malcolm Collins' advice is pretty solid, IMHO! 
Reddit is technically the largest social news website. Unfortunately, this designation misses its core significance. Reddit is the central point of interaction between the unique culture of the online community and that of the offline world.

Hello!
Would you be interested in selling any of the paintings or other antiques in this album through your shop?
Regards,

Aren't they lovely?? They belonged to my grandparents and we just don't have space for them anymore.

+Terry McDonald , +Amy Liu, +Thanh Ma, as designers/arts specialists, how do you make sure you know you're seeing colors correctly?

Do you check your color choices against benchmarks? Is this why Pantone is so frickin' popular for setting standards and trends?

I had always thought that we were all good enough judges of color, but am second guessing myself after actually testing my acuity (in an albeit potentially dubious online test).

Just when I thought I heard it all through Pandora, I encountered a band that does bluegrass tributes to Coldplay songs.

I can't believe what just happened. +Malcolm Collins just pulled off the nerdiest internet-based proposal ever... AND HE ASKED ME TO MARRY HIM!!!

To accompany an advice animals proposal (http://imgur.com/a/uWK49 / http://www.reddit.com/r/AdviceAnimals/comments/1jqm05/this_is_a_marriage_proposal_she_will_recognize_my/), he commissioned a collection of proposal-themed art from 19 artists from all around the world that are related to our favorite things: anime, Adventure Time, sci-fi, My Little Pony, etc. that he posted to r/pics (http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/1jqmtc/today_i_propose_to_my_girlfriend_online_through/)

Obviously I said yes. I mean... c’mon.

"Delicious, nutritious, and compact." I love it!! I've seen some pretty sweet war propaganda over the years, but this chocolate propaganda takes the cake.
Imgur is used to share photos with social networks and online communities, and has the funniest pictures from all over the Internet.

After a life of various water sports, I thought I knew what drowning looked like. I was wrong. This is good to know!

Yikes. "Of the approximately 750 children who will drown next year, about 375 of them will do so within 25 yards of a parent or other adult."
The new captain jumped from the deck, fully dressed, and sprinted through the water. A former lifeguard, he kept his eyes on his victim as he headed straight for the couple swimming between their anchored sportfisher and the beach. “I think he thinks you’re drowning,” the husband said to his...
