Google +


I don’t mean to brag or complain or anything, but this whole idea of various circles of “friends” “family”  “acquaintances” etc. was something I came up with a couple years ago. Admittedly, I came up with it in my own head on a hike in the woods and never did anything with it, but still. This reminds me of some of the changes in AD&D 3rd Edition which I swear they copied right out of some of my notebooks when I was designing my own paper-and-pencil RPG.

Bastards. I’ll probably switch to Google + from Facebook, though. I’m more of a Google lackey I guess.

  1. I’m a complete slut for Google. I use quite a few of their offerings (Reader, Calendar, Maps, News, Email). I’ve always wanted more control over Facebook. I hate it when I post something R-rated and my mom reads it or force un-interested parties into reading my political comments.

    Hope this takes off though man, Facebook has one helluva headstart.
