Dear Google - for the LOVE OF ALL THINGS technology and for us in the trenches dealing with your damn UX failures on otherwise amazing tools.  

YOU HAVE TO start letting multiple google accounts completely work seamlessly in Google Docs/Drive, Hangout, and Plus

This Atlantic story about "liked" properties in FB and Twitter is interesting and has some relevance, particular for my media friends, but even for anyone in higher education attempting to do "content" sites.

I agree. Now the question I have  is: can we make all these little things (sensors/materials) smartly, too, for example without running out of petroleum.

This is a must watch - Clay Shirky's keynote from the Code For America Summit

My key idea/takeaway–on top of the reminders that the best criticism is that which makes those considering it smarter–is the point that you cannot learn anything without going out and doing it, often doing the wrong thing.  "You can't just plan harder"  - Our capacity is the ability to change our minds, to shift direction, to realize that plan A has failed and go to plan B.

Paging +Kevin Gamble  and other Extension Colleagues. This is a great video to talk about in the context of #ExtIsBroken

The Onion completely nails why professional print templates are our technological and consumption future.
