Uploaded my OSCON slides. Demo went well, and no one got sprayed with water. :)

I love elegant diagnostics and I was pretty impressed with the effectiveness of this. I took my glasses off to check and BAM - there's Marilyn. Nothing wrong with glasses folks! Go get them if you're squinting! :-)

"You probably know whether or not you're near-sighted, but some people get so used to seeing things a certain way that they ignore a vision problem, squint a lot, and end up with unnecessary eye strain at the computer. The double-image above cuts straight to the point: If you see Albert Einstein while sitting a normal distance from your computer, you're seeing things as you should. If you see Marilyn Monroe, you should probably be wearing glasses or contacts."

G+'s pseudonym policy can suck it, seriously. There are so many things wrong with forcing people to use the name on their driver's license on their G+ account. There is also something seriously wrong with G+ powers that be selectively enforcing their pseudonym policy.

I'm actually referring to some people who are well known, in various tech circles, by their pseudonyms who have had their accounts suspended.

Want more women on Google+? Invite women you know! Share this to encourage your friends to do the same!

While I don't agree with everything in this article, I think it definitely highlights a couple of really critical points about why Women matter on Google+. I am very passionate about Women in Technology (I am after all, a woman in Technology :-) ) and I want to make sure Google+ is always a place all people feel comfortable being themselves and sharing with those that matter to them. The Google+ community is only just beginning and I think it's essential to have womens' voices shape the community as it forms!

This is incredibly ridiculous... of all the people to suspend! Skud is so well known! And she meticulously documented her years of being known personally and professionally as "Skud". Everyone I know in science fiction, programming, wiki, and open source communities knows her by that name.

I hope her account is restored quickly and that Google develops a better process for evaluating people's names. Whole sections of my social circle are going to just leave Google completely if they can't trust that their stuff isn't going to be deleted.
