I also signed up for Microsoft's http://so.cl network. Seriously. It is a real thing and it is so bad. It looks exactly like google+ but there are even less people there. Amazing. I also kicked up about 12 bugs on my first time trying it. Not great and honestly not ready for launch, imo.
I'm still a facebook hold out. I just can't bring myself to do it. I know I'm missing out on things, but it just feels so dreary and evil at the same time. Like a really exhausted Sauron, if he'd won in the end. He didn't really want to rule Middle Earth. He just thought he did. And so, much like giving Megan a copywriting job at SCDP, or Pete a house in the suburbs, he wouldn't really be satisfied.
I do have a linked in though! Add me there if you want to be professional BFFs. http://www.linkedin.com/in/sherroddegrippo

tldr: Do you use evernote? What do you use it for?
With PCs and laptops in different rooms my notes, clipped articles/URLs and draft articles were a mess. I couldn't remember which PC had which notes, drafts and art.
I've been using Evernote for a couple of weeks and the sync process has really helped keep track of clipped articles. Some writers seem to prefer OneNote so I might eventually pony up for that.
I really like the auto-generated google+ slug on this. I'm willing to give them their money!
It looks like this new blog I put up is going to be nothing but me slamming on HN. Which is awesome because nobody slams HNers like me!
This graphic shows which social networking sites are more male or female. Can you guess where the ladies are? Pinterest. Ha ha. Of course. Also, reddit is more male than Pinterest is female.
For the record, Pinterest is more fun.

One of the best things about being the Consvl of the latin club in high school was becoming a Robert's Rules stickler. I will go up against any wikilawyer when it comes to being rulsey. You can't touch my agenda items.
