With respect to +Kevin Rose, you should no more move your blog to Google+ than you should have to Geocities. Tap into social networks, use them to build your engagement, sure. But your own domain is for life. Google+ is not. Tomorrow, Google could close it, and while you can export your content, you cannot export all that link equity with it. Your posts will 404; that's not engagement. That's annoying. Being master of your own domain isn't just a funny Seinfeld episode. It's common sense, and it shouldn't be forgotten the moment a new flavor of social media Kool-Aid comes along.

Wow, just looked at a hacked WordPress site, so not pretty. It was called from the header.php, did file_get_contents on an image that was really full of nasty obfuscated code creating lots of pharma links in nonsense text. This one, part of a network since an external IP calls another script via http and then immediately hits the home page as Googlebot to make sure the nasty links are there.

Isaac Asimov Interview from 1988, listen to what he says about creativity, computers and learning - we're seeing these things today and yet still have a long way to go.

Playing with Sparks queries - hard to get just what I want, some things, although descriptive, are just too broad or miss the mark entirely. Hm.

Are you upgrading MySQL so you can upgrade to WordPress 3.2? In WHM/cPanel: If it chokes and won't restart after performing the upgrade, check /etc/my.cnf for basedir entry & comment out. Should restart fine after that.

Fixing a broken site move attempt - everything was 404. (this, a well ranked established site) I've seen mistakes like this more than I care to and it pains me because it's a preventable disaster. Don't start a site move unless you understand everything and have your ducks in a row, first!

Daughter's bike won first place! She had light-up stars across the handle bars, I think that did it. The prize was a $25 Target card - guess we'll be going shopping. Our neighbors across the street won second place. Our street pwns. lol.

Helped decorate daughter's bike for the neighborhood bike parade tomorrow morning. Amazing what you can do with a little creativity and paper, stickers and glitter. We appropriated star/sparkly things from all over and of course it's red white and blue. She's thrilled.

So, on the web/mobile interface, how do you add an image? Is it hidden somewhere? (iPhone, so no app yet)

So, this is plus, or is it +? Nice interface. This is a pic of a skimmer I took today on the beach in Galveston, down on the far west end. Love the random weekday runaway.
