Who remembers this song?

I am already liking Google+ better than Facebook :)

Here's what I love about Google+ in general and the Google+ Diet in particular:

Instead of saying, "I'm going to write a blog post now," or "I'm going to send an e-mail" or "I think I'll tweet something" you simply say what you have to say, then decide who you're going to say it to.

If you address it to "Public," it's a blog post.

If you address it to "Your Circles" it's a tweet.

If you address it to your "My Customers" Circle it's a business newsletter.

If you address it to a single person, it can be a letter to your mother.

I'd say this is pretty revolutionary.

PCGURU is looking for a couple of good Technicians and a Business Development Manager. If you (or someone you know) is interested, check out Whirlpool or email

we're trying to get a birthday message trending for Bondi Vet Dr Chris Brown on twitter, please help us by wishing him a happy Bday or having your say about animal rights or any related topic and including HappyBdayMonthDrChris in your tweet :)

What does it mean to +1 a post?

It's strange that the news in Australia hardly ever covers road fatalities. Perhaps if they did more frequently, it would remind people to slow down.

RIP to the male driver that died on the freeway this morning.

So, people really don't like the fact that facebook is trying to be like google+

Lol! Check out this .GIF it's pretty funny :)
New users - one cool thing about Google+ is that you can "mute" posts. What that means, is if a post keeps showing up at the top of your stream because people are commenting on it, you can make it disappear so you'll never see it again. This comes in handy when a user like me (with lots of friends on my list) posts something... you've seen it, read it, good. You don't want to see people comment on it all day long after that? Just mute the post!

This .GIF I'm sharing is funny and if your mind is open, it'll reinforce one of the great philosophical lessons -- truth is not as "objective" as we might assume, everything we see & understand comes from a certain perspective. That said, you probably won't find an interesting discussion about Nietzsche's perspectivism under the .GIF. So if the discussion is boring you, MUTE AWAY!

To mute, mouse over the circle with the arrow in it (to the right of the post header) and click the "Mute this post". If for some reason you should want to Unmute, just return to my profile, find the post, and mouseover the little circle / arrow header again. There's an Unmute option. If I'd had known this in the beginning of my G+ experience it would have saved me a lot of time... Enjoy :)

UPDATE: Oh yes, keep in mind that you can control email notifications. No brainer / of course you can, but I've seen a lot of people complain about them when they start on G+. For what its worth, I've turned off all the notifications except for those that tell me when I'm mentioned in a post. That's usually worth clicking on if someone is trying to talk to me / say something to me, and because I get so many of them, the regular notifications on the site (top right red indicator) aren't sufficient. It maxes at 10!
