Mining Google Plus for Gold... Real value can be found
There is a lot of Gold in Them Thar Hills of Google Plus
For a while now I've been co-hosting a series of Hangouts on Air (HOAs) where +Christine DeGraff & I show you how to use certain Tools to Identify Influencers on Google Plus. Those people are "gold" ...and so is the information they share.

For quite some time, I've told people to "Search for the What on Google Plus and then you'll find the Who". This article shows you the value of that approach with a precious metaphor.

+Mike Allton does a fantastic job explaining the value of "Working the Mine" that is Google Plus. He points out that when you Dig for the What and find it, you'll also have found the Who you should watch moving forward, and eventually look for ways to connect further with that person.
You might find a golden nugget of information that you were looking for, and now you have a brilliant mind to circle on Google+ as well.

It is an interesting coincidence that our HOA series has TNT in the mix as does mining. Starting with the next episode of our series, we will shift a bit from the Tools to the Techniques (TNT) and focus on some of the influencers you are digging for and how they got where they are as well as their impressions on how others interact with them.

Read the article linked below and share it with others, then check out our #TNTbootcamp  show http://goo.gl/8NLuvz

Back in the 1800’s, settlers began streaming West in hopes of finding land and prospects for a better life. They often passed through my own St. Louis before embarking in various directions. In 1844, one of these settlers, a 34-year old man named James Marshall from New Jersey, had started to farm some land in Missouri along the river, but contracted Malaria. On the advice of his doctor, he packed up and headed further West, all the way to Oregon...

Now you can get to your favorite Google products even faster by customizing how they appear in your Google bar. Just drag and drop to rearrange the apps and bring your favorite products to the top.

You can also easily add Google products that aren’t part of the Google bar, like Google Keep and Google Scholar. Learn more: http://goo.gl/hw2cri

We're rolling this out over the next couple weeks, so please hold tight if you aren't seeing it yet.

An excellent post
 
When copyright protection for genealogy becomes a really bad idea
I had a recent comment to a post that mentioned copyright law that chastised me for making a comment about journal contributors that "fiercely defended their copyrights." I assume that the commentator felt that the writers had a right to fiercely defend the...

He was military, but he had a herd of sheep. Who knows why! He was a bit of an artist and I think his work was done on Norfolk Island. In Australian archives somewhere.

Bob Smethurst, from Sussex, spent 36 years working in refuse and began saving the remarkable images from landfill because he could not bear to see them destroyed.
