Changes coming to the +1 widget you see on web sites.
Making the G+1 button load more quickly

The G+1 button is shown billions of times per day on web pages around the world, so it’s important that it load as quickly and efficiently as possible. To make it easier for people to load and share the pages they’re interested in, we’ve created a simpler G+1 button sharing experience.

Beginning in a few weeks, clicking the +1 button will open a streamlined new Google+ sharing dialog, and the G+1 button will no longer display a +1 count. If you’re a publisher, you can rest assured that these +1s do not affect search ranking and the size and layout of the button will remain the same.

These changes will only affect the G+1 button outside of Google+. The +1 button within Google+ will continue to work the same way it always has.

If you’d like to view all of the pages you’ve +1’d over the years, you can download a list using Google Takeout.

We hope this change makes it that much easier to check out and recommend all the interesting things you discover!

The Mail Must Go Through - Decentralized Customer Service

Some kudos to the US Postal Service. I sent Express Mail to a PO Box for Saturday delivery. Saturday comes and I realize that the post office is only open from 8 to 10:30, but delivery is only guaranteed by 3pm. Oops.

So I look up the Post Office and notice that a local number is available. With skepticism I called the local number. 3 rings later I'm talking to a small-town Postmaster. She knows the recipient, takes the tracking number and promises to call back. 15 minutes later she has found out where it was and promised to receive it after hours and deliver it.

Shocked I ask her what can I do to thank you. Her response is simple - "The mail must go through!".

So, at every point in this story, there is gross negligence and incompetence, be forewarned.
