Find content and communities from all across Google+ with Discover

Big news today Google+! We’re rolling a brand new Discover stream to help you and new users find the absolutely best content our network has to offer. If you glance over at your left-hand navigation bar, you’ll notice a shiny ‘Discover’ tab waiting to be explored. Inside, you’ll find trending posts from curated sources in a new, denser format. Also inside are Featured Collections, Recommended Communities, and the previously announced Topics - which got a bit of a makeover as well, so be sure to check them out!

New and signed out users will land on Discover (previously ‘Featured Collections’) which puts content from a diverse set of sources front and center. We hope that this creates a better experience for new users that more readily communicates the awesome stuff G+ has to offer while providing existing users with a fun way to find and follow creators they haven’t yet, ahem, discovered.

To make way for Discover, you may have noticed we removed the Collections tab and the Events tab. Don’t worry! Collections and Events aren’t gone; they’ve just been moved. ‘Featured Collections’ have a new home within Discover and ‘Your / Followed Collections’ can be found by clicking on ‘Communities and Collections’ on your profile. Events can now be found in the overflow menu (three dots) on your profile when you can also find your Insights.

These changes will be live on web and iOS within the next day or so for all users. As always, please let us know what you think by replying to this thread or using the ‘Send Feedback’ option on web or in-app. Enjoy!

Happy Fourth of July! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🎇 Just kidding. I can't think of a July 4th when I've ever been more ashamed of our country. Today, I'd like you to remember that if any democratic president said...

"You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab 'em by the pussy."

...as a married man with kids, the GoP and religious right would be losing their shit - but they aren't because Trump is a republican and they're spineless. They didn't lose their minds. They fought harder for him. Despite everything Trump has done since taking office, the moment evangelicals and Republican voters didn't immediately reject Trump for his misogyny is the moment that "gets me" the most.

As Americans, we need to stand up for everyone and make sure that historically disenfranchised people have the same opportunities as everyone else. Women. Immigrants. LGBTQ people. People of color. People of all religions. The poor. That's fucking American. Not trade wars. Not separating families. Not travel bans. Not "law and order". Not a god damn wall.

The most un-American thing I've ever seen was the right disregarding their supposed morals and convictions to elect a man whose eventual actions as president would harm every single class of citizen I listed above and more. That was their chance. That was their chance to be American as fuck and stand for the principles we were founded on, but instead they... didn't resist. They complied. They said without fighting back, "Well... That's actually not so bad..."

Preventing moments like that one are what make Americans, American. Mediate today on what you can do to make a difference somewhere. Think long and hard where you spend your energy (spoiler: if it's fighting about memes on Facebook, you're doing it wrong). Find something to get involved with NOW well before the elections in November. Consider what you stand for and what you won't tolerate. Remove party and judge actions. Find middle ground when possible and fight ferociously when you can't. Fight for the best option even if it wasn't your first choice. Resist. Resist. Resist.

Don't let more moments like "Grab 'em by the pussy" happen again. We've already seen what happens when they do.

About that one time I got really intimidated working at Google and how I stopped feeling that way (mostly).

Today I got to publish a piece I've been dying to write since last year. Day for Night is, hands down, one of the most purposeful, intentional, and stimulating festivals in the entire world. It’s that magical space that happens when authentic gallery culture and intentional, considered curation challenge the financial requirements of conformity from a mainstream festival.

My newest piece is up at 7x7 and this time it's about my first love in San Francisco: Mission La Lengua. Now, people and storefronts may battle about the true name of this microhood, but, to me, it's Mission La Lengua now and forever.

Living at 29th and Mission for five years, was truly instrumental for me knowing SF was it for me. There's such a vibrant community here that welcomes you in from coffeeshops to bars to restaurants.

It, sincerely, feels like a little town inside of SF and leaving it was so hard. I remember the day before I moved out, I made my Uber driver stop at the top of 29th St so I could one last look. My apartment was riiiiiight at the end of 29th St I just... cried. Like a lot. Mission La Lengua deserves more people to love it as much as I do, so that's why I wrote this.

There are so many more hidden gems in this hood, so maybe I'll do a part 2...

Happy to give a wonderful Bay Area cartoonist a very well-deserved shout out in 7x7. So... What ~would~ a cartoonist do after losing everything in the Tubbs Fire? He'd pick a pen to cope.

Just a few short weeks after the fires, he created the series of panels documenting his story in two parts. It was his way of processing his emotions and, perhaps even more importantly, helping San Franciscans relate to their neighbor's trauma. Even when disasters are just a few towns away, we can have a hard time comprehending the extent of the devastation or the impact it has on the community, workers, families, an individual.

Battle of the Bezels

I definitely prefer Note 8 and V30 to the notch of the iPhone X. Pixel 2 XL as well.

Five years ago, I met Sarah Hatter while I was working for UserVoice. We planned conferences together. Quite a few of them actually. Flash forward to last weekend, and I got to speak at the exceptional Elevate Conference - also planned by Sarah! I spoke about how my team created a scalable process to identify and promote high quality content, eventually leading to the launch of Google+'s new Discover stream. I may not be on that team anymore, but I'm so incredibly proud of what we were able to accomplish and I hope our efforts inspired someone at #ElevateSupport to do something awesome. See you next time, Elevate 🤗

I made moss panels!

They're super simple too. I went to Michaels and got the strongest spray adhesive I could and some 24x36" frames. Then I went to Amazon an ordered some adhesive, bendable cork board (which I thought would hold glue better than a frame) and two 5 gallon buckets of moss - one green and one brown. The moss itself is already dead, so no worries attracting flies and such.

Then I adhered the cork to the back of the frame, took out the glass, and sprayed the adhesive, putting moss on it in chunks.

That's it. Each one probably cost around $60, which is much cheaper than what I was seeing on Etsy.
