Poetry

While clearing out the closet, I found a box with a lot of papers from my college days and in it I found a folder containing poems I had written. It has finished a cycle of rotting in paper, now is its turn to rot in the internets.

This is how to tell a story.

Congratulations to P&G on what I think is the best ad I've seen this year.

Excellent article describing conceptual differences between Facebook and Google+
 
Fixing the Google+ Engagement Problem

Let's be honest: Google+ does have a problem engaging new users. Facebook already has the network for engaging existing friends; Google+ has to forge a different path: building a better network to share interests with those who share our interests.

These 39 slides are some thoughts on how to do just that. I don't work for Google, but over the last several months, Google+ has become an important community to me. I now care about its future, and so while I'm not presumptuous enough to think I have all the answers, I wanted to highlight the core problem, as I see it, and throw out a few rough ideas for addressing it.

These slides builds on earlier slides I created a few months ago:
What is Google+ (really)?:
https://plus.google.com/105103058358743760661/posts/fxp3viNzg9d

They also builds on the ideas of others who are also thinking about many of these issues. At the risk of leaving some important people out, here are at least a few of these good folks:

+Alexander Becker, +Yifat Cohen, +Jacob Dix, +Rod Dunne, +Brian Gundersen, +Siegfried Hirsch, +Max Huijgen, +Jeff Jockisch, +Guy Kawasaki, +Denis Labelle, +Chris Lang, +Thomas Morffew, +Thomas Power, +Vinoth Ragunathan, +Susanne Ramharter, +Miguel Rodriguez, +Jeff Sayre, +Alex Schleber, +Brian Titus, +Mark Traphagen, +Gabriel Vasile, +Colin Walker and +Sophie Wrobel. (Again - apologies to anyone I may have inadvertently missed...)

As with my first slide deck, I've tried to make this tour as easy as possible with some nice images, the credits for which are on the last slide.

Also, if you want to see these as actual slides on Slideshare, I've posted them on my blog at Alchemy of Change: http://www.alchemyofchange.net/googleplus_engagement/

Time Lapse: Annular Solar Eclipse

700 pictures through a Coronado Solar Max 60 Double Stack telescope were used to make this video. The Telescope has a very narrow bandpass allowing you to see the chromosphere and not the much brighter photosphere below it

Thanks to +Mike Elgan for this cool tip on +TWiT on how to connect Google+ and Twitter. Just two steps! It can't get any easier than this. Now, if you setup Twitter to automatically post to Facebook, then it will complete the social network loop.
