Hmm. I just realized folks have been trying to interact with me here, but I gave up on Google+ a long time ago. I'm not sure what to do about that. Should I disable my profile here? Is that even possible?

Apparently this one's been making the rounds, but it's my first time to see it. I ♥ the Oxford comma. Seriously.

Some good thinking around the needs of enterprise-level UX: "An industrial-strength usability practice is NOT just a lot of really smart UX staff."

Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog," covered by 80 different cover bands, stitched together. Pretty cool.

Super cool! The image I saw depended on if I had my glasses on or not (because I am near-sighted).

Who's up for a trip to Japan ?

« Fuji-Q Highland amusement park world's steepest roller coaster "Takabisha" with a free falling angle of 121 degrees. Now there's rider-eye-view video that conveys the experience pretty well. The portion in the photo below starts around 1:15 in the video. »

An interesting side-note to my previous IP issues post... I can see everyone who has re-posted my post, including 2nd-degree (not sure beyond that) connections who re-posted from another re-post. However, in all cases (so far) the 2nd-degree connection's filters/security don't allow me to actually see my own post re-posted in their stream. That's not a big deal, but it's interesting.

My non-legal-expert comparison of IP issues within Google+ and Facebook Terms of Service...

I have absolutely no idea what we're doing here. Or what I'm doing here, or what this place is about, but I am determined to enjoy myself. And I'm very intrigued, and, oh my, this soup's delicious, isn't it?
