The beginnings of a "How To G+". I love technology which becomes defined by use, rather than design, which is why G+ excites me as a platform. Here, +Jeff Bercovici examines some of the currents influencing G+, and how to navigate them effectively.

Adobe makes blurry images sharp!
Will deblurring be a success? I´m pretty sure that it will be a groundbreaking hit if Adobe can pull it through all the way! Check out the video and you´ll get the picture:)

I just received some info from +Andres Leon about why FB, G+ and others gather in and store our personal data. To me it stinks of spying, but I am 64 years old, I was brought up in a world of spying and paranoia.

This TED talk explains to me WHY they store our information. I still think it is wrong, but in a different kind of way. They think it is for my own good.

Now I see it as a violation of my future rights, they are deciding what I will think and do tomorrow based on what I thought and did today.

So if I went to the park and fed the ducks today, they are assuming I will want to go and feed them tomorrow! without giving a thought to the fact that I might want to go to the zoo and feed the monkeys instead.

Check out the video here. Facebook and Google / Secret Revealed
and see what you think.

An incorrigably hesychastic, captious, dilatory and dipsomaniacal tumid euphuist. Born in Oxford, raised in the shadow of the White Horse and currently resident in the ugly, lovely town of Swansea, I like things and ideas more than feelings and people.
