I don't know about you guys, but this repository is going to keep me busy for a while!

I read an article on Lifehacker not too long ago - one I'm sure you may have read - about using Dropbox to host a website. Have any of you guys tried that and, if so, how did it turn out?
I ask because I was thinking of doing something similar for a few low-traffic personal sites and wanted to see if there were any kind of restrictions on doing such a thing, as opposed to paying for Rackspace...

With the popularity of live streaming video, why aren't there bands that put on their own halftime or pre-game concerts, the way the networks used to schedule alternate halftime programming? ‪#‎SuperBowl‬ #hangoutsonair

Excited to see #BarCampMKE  on track! If you live in or around the Midwest, this long-standing tradition in the #Milwaukee   Meetup community is definitely an event you don't want to miss.

#tech   #webdevelopment   #hacking  ... anything you want to learn or teach!
BarCampMilwaukee 8
Milwaukee, WI
For the eighth consecutive year, BarCampMilwaukee is returning to Bucketworks the first weekend in October.  Bucketworks will host the event at its current Grand Avenue location.  Doors open at 9:00 AM, Saturday October 5th.
A BarCamp is a wholly unique event that provides a free, open-environment forum where the participants are in charge of what happens. It is an interactive conversation where professionals and curious alike come to learn, teach, and imagine. This revolutionary “unconference” allows participants to float from one session to another, and encourages the development of interesting ideas and spontaneous discussion. Since the first BarCamp in the US eight years ago, hundreds of BarCamps have been organized throughout the world.
Throughout BarCampMilwaukee’s eight year run, participants have been involved in a wide array of session topics ranging from:
Software Development: Ruby on Rails, Drupal, and JavaScript.  
Technologies: 3d printing/scanning, video editing, robots, and solutions for non-profits.
Solutions for small businesses and non-profits.
All the way to things like Zombie Defense Preparation, lockpicking, sushi making, and many other topics for makers, DIYers, artists and other creatives.

Could this be an opportunity for #GooglePlus to capitalize? Younger crowds - like teens - enjoy being able to make social networks their own, with an environment that lets them explore on their own terms.

I would say that G+ - compared to Facebook - is more ripe with innovation and idea-sharing which truly allows its users to break away from the social minutia that keeps people from achieving strides in personal growth.

Sometimes, having smaller circles to interact with others allows us to focus our thoughts and ideas, as well as provide them better context for the benefit of others who would best appreciate them.

It might be kind of a big leap from Snapchat, Vine and Instagram, but could G+ lure in younger users who think Facebook is "trying too hard"? Do you think the writing might be appearing on the wall for Zuck's platform? Share your thoughts.
At 13, I’ve been noticing something different: Facebook is losing teens lately. And I think I know why.
