Play-Doh started out as wallpaper cleaner, meant to clean soot from coal off of wallpaper. Just as that company was going out of business they rescued it by repurposing the product as a children's toy ... who knew?

The weird thing about Google+ is all the random people who added me to their circles. I suspect I was recommended to them because we both follow Larry, Sergey, and Mark. But so do thousands for others .. there is nothing "really" in common between us.

I'm sure the google insider people could even tell you that. Me, I haven't renamed anything, as the defaults cover the obvious options. Guess I'm a pretty low self-monitor I behave the same way towards most everyone so can't see that I'd have overly fine-grained circles. Unless maybe you had one for certain in-joke constellations of friends or something. Hm.

People forget that this is still a f field trial. Also please use the "send feedback" if you see something out of place.

Please accept our apologies for the spam we caused this afternoon.

For about 80 minutes we ran out of disk space on the service that keeps track of notifications. Hence our system continued to try sending notifications. Over, and over again. Yikes.

We didn't expect to hit these high thresholds so quickly, but we should have.

Thank you for helping us during this field trial, and once again, we are very sorry for the spam.

funny thing is that I tried to post this on facebook and couldn't! Apparently, it was blocked before because it was abusive.... interesting...

After spending all that effort building my friends network on Facebook, then getting bored with it and almost ditching FB, I am now spending crazy amounts of time building by G+ circles. Only it's hard when most people aren't on G+ yet.

I want my stream to update about as frequently as my fb wall, but not quiet as often as my twitter feed.

Why does it end with a "bing"?

Hey Google+ folks!

As I bet you've noticed, we are facing pretty incredible demand for Google+ invites.

As Engineering Director of Google+, I wanted to take a moment to explain why we're growing the system slowly. First, we want to make sure our infrastructure scales so the service remains fast and reliable. Second, we want to ensure that bugs are fixed while there are still a relatively few people in the field trial.

Things are going well with the systems right now so we feel comfortable enough to open up invites for a brief period. Our goal is to double the user base in the field trial. (Sorry, we're not giving details about how many folks are in the field trial yet).

So, in a few minutes, we'll open up invites again.

We continue to throttle invites, so please don't mass invite folks as it won't work. If you invite a handful of your most important friends and family you're much more likely to get these folks into our system.

Thanks again for providing so much wonderful feedback!
