So this year's trip is Japan with a sprinkle of Beijing. We have 12 days in Japan flying in and out of Tokyo with no plans. One full day layovers in Beijing each way. Where should we go, what should we do and who should we meet? We are opened-minded and adventurous. We've been to 40 countries or so but never Japan of China! Any travel tips appreciated.  #travel #china #japan #tokyo #beijing

Hey guys, you recently added me to on my work Gmail accounts. Just an FYI, this is my primary Google+ account. If there has been a better way to merge accounts, I'd love to hear it. Thanks!

I would use Google+ so much more if my accounts were in order or could merge. My two other accounts are dependent upon Drive for work. I can't justify signing in here first and it kills the seamless process.

It's a Cisco ad, but still a pretty cool video of the Internet of Things:

No matter how hard I try, I still can't get "Look at this Instagram" out of my head. Look at this Instagram (Nickelback Parody) "I'm friggin Michelangelo!"

Looking for any recommendations during our upcoming trip to Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan.  We'll be among those three countries for a few weeks in April. 

Suggestions so far via +Melissa Fudor's Facebook friends:

"For Lebanon, definitely the Jeita Grotto, Our Lady of Harissa, Temples of Baalback, and downtown Beirut (the souks, Solidere, Hamra Street, and Gammayzeh - the downtown core can be done within a day). Hope you guys enjoy it!"

"Completely agree with everything Simon said. I also recommend Moussa Castle, Byblos/Jbeil next to the marina ( was more historical but now has a lively night life -restaurants, clubs, etc). Raouché, Beit el Din (meaning the Prince's Palace). It's way too cold to go the beach around this time of the year, but if you were going in the summer, I would highly recommend it! You're going to love it!! Say hello to my country for me and enjoy!!"

I really enjoyed Assos when we visited about 20 years ago. We were looking for a place to stay overnight and we so enjoyed it that we ended up staying for a few days. Not too much left of the ruins and it is rather off the beaten path.
Ephesus was interesting as well.

The best Pulp Fiction theory that I've heard to date: http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/15byj8/my_pulp_fiction_theory/.
We were stoned and talking about movies when I came up with this bizarre theory that I thought Pulp Fiction was about music in America. I'm very aware...

It's the end of the industrial age and lineation as we know it. I'm just riding the wave to an open, empathic civilization without official countries, gatekeepers and corruption that is brought on with the sharing of information. 

I truly believe (and practice) in transparency and am convinced that if everyone were open, we would live in a world without crime and corruption. No, that's not Utopia. All information (including conversations) should be shared, trackable and searchable for all to have access to. 

Society could use a reduction of:
  • ownership
  • industrial education (school systems & universities)
  • government systems as we know them
  • corporations
  • currency
  • nation-states
  • gatekeepers
  • work - chained to the desk 9-5 mentality
They all are being "Netflixed". 

My biggest concern over the next few years is the digital divide
