Joost's posts

You're probably looking for this +Joost Schuur. This is my (non Apps) Gmail account.

Google+ account migration completed
So I'm over at +Joost Schuur now, and thanks to Google's migration tool, I'm taking all my followers with me. It looks like 106 of you didn't make the move over, but the large majority did.

Because posts don't move over, this profile will stick around for legacy purposes. I've made sure to promote the new one in the about page and re-list the proper account in Google's profile search.

Anyone new find this account, leave a comment below letting me know where it might still be linked, but circle +Joost Schuur instead.

Google+ account migration status: Confused
When Google announced their migration tools that allowed you to migrate your circles from one account to another, I decided to give it a try, since I wanted to move my 5,100+ followers here to my primary Google Apps account. I didn't care too much about the limitation that posts wouldn't be reassigned to the destination account, so I requested the move on July 13th, and for a week, there was a warning giving me a heads up about a 7 day migration delay. Right now though, it looks like I'm stuck somewhere in the middle.

On the date and time of the planned migration, I saw an updated notice saying it was in progress, and now it's gone, but as far as I can tell, the migration was incomplete. I've lost 212 followers ( on the old account (this one) and only gained 91 ( on the new one (+Joost Schuur). 4,989 are still listed here, but without the migration notice at the bottom of this page, I have no indication whether the migration is still in progress or if it is somehow still in progress.

At this point, color me confused and tentatively irked.

Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.

Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.

Neat way to find nice, compact 5 letter domain name from +Corey Ballou. I just picked up (for 'alternate history').

Google+ migration tool released
Google Takeout now supports migrating your circles from one Google account to another, which would allow me to move my Gmail account users from this account to my Google Apps account, which I use for all my other Google. The only downside: It doesn't support migrating posts to the new account.

I can probably live with that. The migration limits your functionality for 7 days while it's in progress, so if you don't hear from me...
A while back we announced plans for a tool that would help you transfer your circles from one Google+ account to another and ensure that your followers are automatically directed to your new, preferred profile.  Today, anyone can visit Google Takeout and click “Transfer your Google+ connections to another account”:  For more information, check out this help center article.  Thanks again for being so patient!

I wonder if this quick post will do anything to sooth my ailing Klout score?

Just kidding. I don't care so much about the actual numerical value, I'm just curious about the strength of the formula behind it. As should anyone who uses it.

Valve introduces community drive distribution green lighting with Steam Greenlight
Ostensibly, an extension to their Steam Workshop infrastructure, where the community votes on fan made add-on DLC:

With the introduction of the Steam Workshop in October 2011, we established a flexible system within Steam that organizes content and lets customers rate and leave feedback. This opened up a new opportunity to enlist the community's help as we grow Steam and, hopefully, increase the volume and quality of creative submissions.
