This is a pic of Tux looking intimidating and world-dominate-y, but he's really a big sweetheart. Shh. Don't tell. (I have had too much fun with these guys, who just launched: www.MyRobotNation.com - create your own robot action figure and they 3D print it.)

Agreed 100%. Competition issue is the same across any social networking. But the distractibility and lack-of-meatspace-contact issues, while they don't HAVE to be specific to FB, are at the moment. G+ and whatever else could easily fall victim to the same problems...but hasn't yet. Only a very small portion of people expect everyone to be checking G+ or feel pressure to use it constantly as a networking tool. FB has become ubiquitously that. No one has ever said to me while talking face to face "you should check out the pictures - I have them on G+ - look there" instead of just showing me the fucking things in person. I find people frequently do that with FB.

P.S. Happy finalsing...hope the kids are being good. Talk soon!

Windowfarms TED talk... They're on Kickstarter for 6 more days too. I love this. I can't wait to grow real food and only have to trudge across a carpet in PJs during the bitter cold of a California winter (<---sarcasm) to harvest some greens.
