A spectacular assessment of Google's failure at social. A must read.

True, true. Opinion writers do tend to dramatize. Having put so much behind it, and especially with the potential of Google Eyes (http://techcrunch.com/2012/04/04/google-project-glas/), I am not nearly as pessimistic as the author that Google is out, or that this is Google's largest failure. Time will tell that for us, not tech-nerd fortune tellers.

Gorgeous
 
"Eternal Vitality" - The Kilauea volcano crater (1247m) in Hawaii last night. I spent two days by the crater waiting for the clouds to disappear, the lava glow to be as low as possible and for the milky way to be positioned right before this became possible.

In order to capture this I had to use a 4-stop graduated ND filter and polarizer. Camera 5DIII with 30seconds/F1.4/ISO4000.

The beer list. That's the important thing. Although I'll probably try the bulgogi spare ribs no matter what!

I have just as few friends as ever using G+, but at least it looks nicer. Yay for a new interface! Perhaps Google's not out of social yet?

It's already slightly different today-- the gray bar between this space and the chat space, for instance.
