One of the things I miss the most is having onsite IT professionals! +Andrew Wilson However, I am surprised at how much I learned at ITS.

So Google Drive is trying to compete with Drop Box? Does anyone else feel like I do?
--It's too much effort to switch all my Drop Box stuff over to gain what? They don't say. 
-- Drop Box expands my storage for free when others share my files, nice benefit.
--Google Drive doesn't play nice with Word. The formatting is problematic.

Love this...and especially these rules:

--Your avatar picture shouldn’t be a logo. We don’t meet logos at parties, do we? You can include a logo, but make it you.
--Unless you’re a fictional character, more often than not, your avatar should be you. Amazing Simpson-like renditions of you are interesting for about four hours.
--Your Facebook profile pic can be not you, but it often means that others might not accept your friend request. It feels creepy friending a four year old kid (avatar).
--Your picture can be you from 10 or 15 years ago, but that first face to face meeting is going to be jarring.

 
 
Etiquette Matters

Just happened across this old chestnut from +Chris Brogan. It's well worth another read and a bookmark, if you aren't yet familiar with the principles.

"The smartphone is the hub of our screen-based media consumption..." Great post and find.
 
I've just posted an item to my blog that digs into the communications implications of a new study from Google that explores how people routinely use their screen-based devices during a typical 24-hour period. Among the fascinating revelations is the distinction between simultaneous and sequential multiple-device usage. The study makes it clear that, in communications/PR planning, we now must think in terms of multiple devices, not just one medium for delivering content. That includes the likelihood that someone will find you initially on their smartphone -- the backbone of our digital media consumption -- and complete it on a different device. This is exciting stuff, but very disruptive to current communication planning models. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
