I am getting more than a little annoyed with Google+

My preference would be to share everything publicly, but to do that I have to come to this interface and do it manually.

The Google+ API does not allow external apps to share anything to Public, it will always just be to Friends. And Google+ does not allow you to edit the sharing parameters after the fact.

"Delete it and re-post it!" they happily say.

I would love to post through Flipboard, and then pop in to catch the engagements. But it is damned frustrating to insist that I log specifically into the site and manually do what I can do elsewhere with a bookmarklet?

Ugh.

It has become very wonky, by which I mean way more wonky lately than in its heyday. For me the settings seem to default to whatever I did last. If I posted to a group last, that's the default the next time I post.

I am still amazed by how the oceans dwarf the continents,” Jim Corradino of Norwalk, Conn., wrote us. “There’s something remarkable about a single snapshot of the Earth — an intact view of our planet in its ...

15,000 years from now, as the next civilization reaches critical mass after the Ice Age, scientists and archaeologists will discover our internet archives, and conclude that sunsets suddenly exploded in frequency after 2012 because now there are so many photographs.

Oh, and like the Egyptians, we worship cats. Because, photos.

Antonin Scalia was found alone in his room, with traces of both dihydrogen monoxide and bilirubin in his bloodstream. WHAT ARE THEY COVERING UP?

Ordinarily, I would check out Snopes on this. But it is legit.

Two sturgeon attacks in one month? It would be a shame if some weasel out there tried piling on to this tragedy by blaming it on climate change.

Red Book it?
Jaylon Rippy died after getting struck by the fish; her mother, Tanya Faye Rippy, and 9-year-old brother, Trevor Rippy, were also injured.

Story
Tagline
A former TV news reporter who now helps businesses tell their stories to the people who need to hear them.
Introduction
I spent 16 years in TV news, with a smattering of awards (and an Emmy) for my troubles. Along the way, I fell in love with helping other people better communicate. I founded my consultancy, Positive Position, and went to work for the American Red Cross.

After a few years there, having a blast with crisis communications, disasters, and social media, my position was wiped out in a huge layoff. I landed at Alabama Power, where I currently work as a spokesman and strategist for the Birmingham Division, and lead the company's efforts in social media and digital relations. 
Bragging rights
Won an Emmy. Used to teach Kung Fu. Authored the greatest pickup line ever. Chaired a professional conference in London.
