Any time I'm feeling too smart, all I have to do is try playing the Korean bamboo flute (단소, danso or tanso) to be reminded of what an idiot I truly am.  My brother in law Lee Tong Ha gave me two o...

New blog.
This beautifully painted Korean Air jet is the one that took us to Korea.  It is seen here at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, being made ready to board passengers. Here's a close-up (click...

This looks promising.  One of the things that attracted me to Google+ in the first place was the idea of sharing different things with different "circles," with different interests.  But how should I know which circles to put people into, based on their interests?  The new collections, I think, will be a better fit to the publish/subscribe model: "create a collection" = publish; "follow a collection" = subscribe.
 
Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

If you have questions then also be sure to check out our Help Center content http://goo.gl/zyIVMH; if you still can’t find an answer then please post your question in the Collections subcategory. 

Best,
Moritz & Claire

Agreed. It looks like a good addition.

For the WHAT ELSE IS NEW department:
"College educations are becoming more difficult to pay for since costs are rising faster than American income.  (In January 1961, Coronet estimated a five per cent per year increase which means costs will double by the time today''s babies enter college.)"

-- Robert O. Blood, Jr., Marriage, 2nd ed., 1969

Reading old books sometimes provides new insights.

Hm!  The introduction to this starts out very nice!  "How to think like git."

I've recently had to start learning to use git, and I think this is going to be very useful.  Much clearer that other explanations I've seen so far.

I struggle to read blogs with low-contrast text.  There are more and more of them.  I also struggle to find a high-contrast theme and settings for my own fledgling blog; wordpress.com does not make this easy.
Low-contrast text may be trendy, but it is also illegible, undiscoverable, and inaccessible. Instead, consider more usable alternatives.

From Nice to Kindness ...
 
Introducing Nice 2.0, Kindness.
Nice, like many first generation products, was limited. It was polite and avoided offence allowing systems to cooperate, but with prolonged use Nice became bugged by Indifference and often corrupted systems with Contempt. Some users of Nice came to rely on exploits or feared being exploited themselves. This resulted in Nice becoming unusable even for its limited design specifications.

Nice 2.0, Kindness relies on features provided by the operating system Humility and gains new levels of reliability when supported by Gratitude. We believe upgrading old Nice systems to Kindness will improve performance under strenuous conditions and when powered by Love (verify your Love has been certified as genuine Charity to maintain warranty) will continue to bring Joy for many years to come.

Korean students' version of April Fools Day is more fun that Google's.
- -Come to think of it, what was Google's 4/1 prank this year? 
- Yes, this is 5 weeks late, but I've never been good at keeping up with the times.
Ahh April Fools’ Day. In Korea, it’s called Man Woo Jeol (만우절 -萬愚節), which translates to “very foolish holiday.” A day when everything from tiny lies to faked deaths is, in the end, forgivable. Within reason. Specifically in schools in Korea, it’s a time of teamwork and...
