This is perhaps the coolest April Fools' "prank" I have ever seen, right up there with the kid who got lots of people for his cardboard arcade.

Well, this is a bit peculiar. I just tried to add my blog to my Google+ Profile, and Google claimed that the link was not a valid URL. It clearly is, however. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

A little late, but I finally figured out what the problem was! It's all good now. :-)

I'm beginning to believe these days that the reason you see a light bulb over the head of cartoon characters when they get an idea is because of the innovation taking place in light bulbs lately. Here's a link to the latest example: http://www.latinospost.com/articles/7734/20121204/new-plastic-light-bulbs-flicker-free-replacements.htm

If you've ever wanted to know anything about that plane flying overhead, there's now a search for that.
You may not love this as much as I do, but that’s okay. Wolfram Alpha has just launched what I’d have to put on any year-end list of the coolest search technologies of 2011: a tool that tells you, lit...

I'm noticing some interesting disparities in who has a "verified name" badge on Google and who doesn't. I have a potential working theory, and I'm wondering who in the fannish community has them and who doesn't. (Rob Balder has one, for example, but as I write this, Mary Ellen Wessels doesn't). Right now I don't have enough data points, but I'm definitely open to comments, suggestions, theories, etc. Would love to see what you have to say about it.

It could just mean that someone involved in the verification process is a fan of Balder's work.

I'm not intentionally using Google+ to promote my work or business, but it IS nice that being on here is relevant to my work. I just wrote an article on an interesting quirk that happens when you perform a Google search and you're logged in to Google Plus. I'll post the link tomorrow. (And I'll try to make my posts here less boring, I promise! ;-) ).

I've been a little frustrated with myself over letting my blogging at Joyful Discoveries fall off to pretty much nothing over the last month. Then I sat down and thought about how much writing I've been doing for the South Lake Tablet, especially over the last six days. Aha, so that's where all my writing energy went! It's really hard for me to be too upset over this; I like writing for the Tablet, and even better, I'm getting paid for it. :-)

Talk about custom search! Google showed me a customized logo today because it's my birthday. Sweet. :-)

Okay, so I'm seeing this icon on the left with the word "new" next to it, and it's labeled "Communities." I think I have some idea of what it is (I may be a relative newbie to Google+ given how little I've used it, but I'm not a total newbie to online social networking; I did that before we had that name for it!). My questions are: have you joined any communities? Which ones? Have you found them useful, and if so, how? Yep, it's another case of me hunting for information. (Which means I should probably share something interesting I've found in my next post). Chime in! :-)

Hmmm...I may poke around with it tomorrow then, and if either of you Garys find anything interesting, feel free to let me know. (I promise I won't bug you with any crafting communities I find; filk, on the other hand... ;-) )

I've been away from actively using Google+ for a while, but I've decided to come back to it -- mostly for professional reasons, but I also have a good group of friends here. So I want to throw out a couple of questions to you all. First question: what is your favorite improvement to Google+ since April of this year?

Thanks Gary; sounds like I probably need to read that article. And S John, thanks for the tip; that's news to me. Looks like I'll  have to see about spending some quality time poking around here.

I mentioned this on Facebook, but it's even more appropriate to note it here. Am I the only one who finds it...interesting...that Google made G+ available to everyone without an invitation within 24 hours of Facebook instituting changes that many users are vilifying? I have no idea which came first; in fact, Google might well have opened G+ before Facebook rolled out the changes. But the two events were practically too close to be coincidence.

Remember that you don't have to add him back; if you don't, they'll only see what you share publicly. Not only that, but I believe there's an easy way to block the person so you don't see anything from them in your stream, either. (Don't know it off the top of my head, though).

+Julia Klein , I'm glad you enjoyed it! Be sure to check out the link in my earlier post, which compared Ravelry and LibraryThing, if/when you get the chance. It was titled "Information Needs to Be Portable," and I was pretty pleased with how it came out.

I go there as often as I can. It's a wonderful place for working on craft projects. Mary is very helpful and knowledgeable. Adults have as much fun as kids. I'm seriously thinking about having my next birthday there.

Delicious ice creamy desserts that you get to fix yourself; tons of toppings to choose from, and the flavors are changed regularly (look for season-appropriate ones like pumpkin).

It's a typical warehouse store, but I've always received good service from their knowledgeable staff.

Nice variety of food (love the exotic items!), laid back atmosphere, friendly service. It's hard to resist the orange cake dessert!
