A few thoughts on what Siri may or may not bring in the next few years.

Well we have seen Siri progress over the past year.

Matt, you should've gone to see Woz at GSU last week. Open to the public. What I saw from the 2nd half was great, talking to him was cool too.
hopefully gsu has that podcast uploaded!

Got a little scared that after merging my Google Apps account with my Google account, I'd be locked out of Plus until support came to Apps. But not the case - +Sanjay Parekh is the man.

I've been so engrossed in this for the past hour that I've forgotten to eat.

One advantage that Google+ does have is integration across other services people might use more than Facebook. Feels strange in a good way to have a comment notification show up when I'm doing a web search.

I really like the concept of a hangout, but the app definitely needs work. First unique thing I've seen that's not offered by Facebook.

Viewing photos from people in your circles is much better executed than Facebook photos. I like the Google Image-esque mouseover effect.

Using Google Plus to share a blog post about my thoughts on Google Plus.

And you miss the "starting over" effect. I've seen people who dabbled in other social media services before really getting into plus -- they get to start by focusing on groups of friends up front and it doesn't hurt that it is in their face as they use other google services.

Facebook is a walled garden. Google+ isn't wall-less, but it certainly feels more open.

The creation of Google Plus is undoubtedly causing even more segmentation in the interwebz...creating a problem instead of solving an existing one.

Biggest difference here seems to be more emphasis on who sees what than Facebook. Circles are at the center of the setup process, where they're more of an afterthought with Facebook.

This brings up the question of whether people will really categorize people as "Acquaintances" instead of "Friends" and if offense will be taken.

Friend: "If I'm in jail, I'd call them to bail me out (or they are with me in jail)"
Acquaintance: Everyone else I know not in category 3
Gahhhh: People who make me make that noise mentally when I see them
