If most of our thought leaders agree that the teacher is the key and the relationship of the teacher to the students is also key, why we are not doing much more to support teachers?

Given how Google is saying they don't want brands here yet, don't be surprised if our account gets deep-sixed. Nonethless, we're here for now and we want to kick the tires.

What does it mean when Mark Zuckerberg has 110,000 followers on Google+ (although he hasn't posted anything) and Larry and Sergey have half that amount of followers? http://www.findpeopleonplus.com/Followers-1%2C000%2B

The concept of a "live" update hasn't been commented on much yet, but is very powerful and nothing that any of the other services has -- when you create a hangout, an update is also created. When the hangout is closed, the update goes away -- implying some type of synchronous connection. I assume this will be supported by their API, leaving open the possibility for lots of different live services reflected in your stream. Very, very impressive.

A few Google+ tips:
- You can click on profile pictures to rotate through them. Nice find by +MG Siegler on that one.
- In the stream, you can click 'j' to navigate down to the next item or 'k' to navigate up. I think it's the same keys that Gmail uses, which is probably in turn because +Paul Buchheit uses vi and created Gmail. :)
- If you're sharing a post with a small circle of people, you can prevent resharing. Click the arrow at the top-right of the post and choose "Disable reshare."
- If you're looking for more fun things in your stream, the "Incoming" stream is stuff from people who are sharing with you, but who you haven't added to a circle.
- One great one from +Frederic Lardinois is that "there is some basic text formatting, too: (*)bold(*), (_)italics(_) and (-)strike-through(-) are the ones I've noticed so far."

What are your favorite Google+ tips?

got my vanity URL gplus.to/cinjo -- after several tries until I realized they only needed my user ID -- not the full URL. Glad Google+ is more intuitive.

Impressed w the UI of Google+ so far. I'm typically skeptical of new releases but this is very easy to use and I like the integration w my Gmail.
