A new meme:

Visit These are what Google thinks you are interested in.

Copy them and paste them.

Then make fun of them, if you like.

Paleontology? How did they get that preference?

Yes, Google Plus made me change my name. Ugh.

Eli and I visited the Scottish Highland Games in Enumclaw, Washington yesterday. Great fun; great chance to see different kinds of dance and hear Scottish traditional music. And -- shock! -- the weather cooperated!

I have an unusual question... Without looking up any dictionary (or online), how would you define the word "evolve" as a verb?

One thing that's missing from Google Plus:

There are no communities.

Right now, you can follow people who interest you... but you can't join a group of people who are into, say, My Little Pony. Or left-wing libertarianism. Or cryptography.

You have to build those circles yourself.

The closest are 'sparks', which link to stories about favorite ideas -- but that's not the same as creating a discussion group around an idea.

Do you know of a way around that problem in Google+?

I have an open question for everyone...

How do you open a business e-mail that's going to co-workers and to managers?

I'm not asking what is the 'correct' way to write a business email, or to follow a stuffy manual from the 1950s. ('Always start a letter with "To Whom It May Concern:"'.) I'm asking what you do in practice.

Let's make a few simple rules.

Don't harass your co-workers. Don't harass acquaintances. Just don't harass.

This is... amazingly apt.

Pinkie Pie as, uhmmm, Pink.

In particular, one line stood out to me: "At Egalia boys are free to dress up and to play with dolls, if that is what they want to do."

Uhmm... has there ever been a time that boys did NOT play with dolls?

Except, we called them "Action Figures". Go GI Joe with Kung-Fu Grip!

I've never joined Facebook, but I'm curious about Google+.

I'd like to share music that I've composed with a broader community. Is there a way to do this -- or do I need to create a 'video' (even if it's just an image) and put the music in the background?
