This is, without a doubt, the best set of Tips I've seen on using G+. Lots of power user ideas here. Hint: Use the Chrome browser, a lot of the tips are Chrome extensions, and G+ is so much faster in Chrome.

Also, the G+ guide written by G+ users in Google Docs continues to grow: http://bit.ly/pzxVj8 -- this one is more exhaustive (not in a tip format) and will help new and expert users.
Get the most out of Google's new social network with these awesome tips and tricks.

Joyce painted it for me...not a true test of geekiness, just uber coolness in friends.

And i wish I were the alpha geek, but i know way too many real geeks, and I'm glad to be the designer in the crew...

Education
  • Amherst College
So...I'm a pita when it comes to haircuts (not the bread--pain in the a...). I want it to be stylish but also easypeasy (more than 5 minutes is too high maintenance). But I don't know how to articulate what I want it to look like. At all. (Like I might say something like this: queer/quirky leaning toward pixies meets k-pop--but not j-pop, and definitely no justin beiber bs--please.) On top of that, I get busy and forget to schedule an appointment for weeks. Which means I get hella shaggy. I'm a nightmare client, amirite? Somehow, Prez never makes me feel bad for all this. For YEARS now, Prez has taken care of all these special needs, and never leads me astray. At this point, I just show up, turn off my brain, and let her do whatever she likes. And...her styles come out crazy good--folks stop me on the street to compliment my hair (fab gayboys, soccer moms, cute chicks...). Pretty much, it's the main reason I have a good dating life. It's that good. Seriously, without it, I'm just your average geeky pixel-pushing four-eyes. With Prez's help, I actually get action from hot model phd's (for serious...it seriously happened..and she was super sweet too!). Imagine what she could do for a normalish person like yourself...!
