Google plus is good for starting conversations with people you don't know. Twitter's 140 character limit doesn't facilitate long conversations that well.

I agree with you about twitter, Daniel.  It reminds me of trying to write a text message on your cell phone, get the important info within only to be reinventing the spelling of some words and skipping every space possible  and still find that your 3 characters over the 160 cell text message limit. I avoid cell text messaging because of points like ones I listed above and opt for voice calls instead. F*** some tech advancements sometimes. :-)

The politics of programming: https://plus.google.com/110981030061712822816/posts/KaSKeg4vQtz

This is quite an interesting way to look at programmers & how well teams work together. When I've worked in bigger teams; there tends to be a mix of conservative & liberal programmers & inevitably personality clashes. To paraphrase part of the article: If you're building a new team perhaps it's an idea to identify the type of programmer that fits in best with your team. Do your programmers lean liberal, centrist, conservative etc. A team of all liberals will work together better than a mix of the 2 types. I have definitely experienced this. I'd say I'm probably a liberal with some centrist qualities. I've worked with some ultra conservative programmers in the past & it has caused headaches. They weren't bad people or bad programmers but just had a different ideological viewpoint on programming to me. Just my 2 cents on the article.

I might make the full migration to google plus from facebook. I all but deleted my facebook account a while back. Google Plus becomes very useful when you use it more like twitter with no character limit. It's very easy to use also.
