POSSIBLY IMPORTANT: Last week I initiated the Google+ migration process which means that some time tomorrow all of my followers will be migrated from my kevbot@gmail.com account (which I don't use for anything anymore) to my kevin@fury account.

From what I understand, all the content I've created on Google+ will be left behind on the kevbot account, but that's not a huge problem, since most of my stuff here is temporally relevant anyhow.

Anyhow, you shouldn't need to do anything, and I look forward to seeing you in my new account tomorrow.

Just a tad nervous.

This is exactly the kind of move I've been hoping for years that Yahoo! would make.

This is also the kind of move that I've been hoping Marissa would make. When a Wal-Mart board member is three levels deep in their own company's hierarchy, something's not right.
 
I'm incredibly excited to start my new role at Yahoo! tomorrow: http://pressroom.yahoo.net/pr/ycorp/236553.aspx

Maybe she got tired of Vic Gundotra dictating policy without data to back it up.

To transfer your Google+ circles and other connections between accounts, click Google+ circles transfer tool at Google Takeout. This tool transfers your Google+ circles and connections from a “source”...

Somewhere a Google Plus server is churning through my 15,000 followers, slowly migrating them to my new account!

More like "I'm glad they listened" (or at least came to their senses).
