Google seems to use web searches to come up with suggestions for 'you might like' here, cool.
(yesterday my tracker was not updating its data and I was googling for a solution. today g+ is suggesting to follow fitbit. this might or might not be a coincidence, but their last post was about 8 months ago so they are hardly a member who naturally pops up)
hmm, I did plus about the fitbit flex a couple of days ago, so this could be a more plausible explanation, actually.

argh, twitter finally killed their hidden rss feed. (ok, g+ never ever even offered one)
update: oops, seems like twitter still has one hidden feed alive (replace hackr with any screen name you want): http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=hackr

stats for coursera's SNA: "Some participation stats: 61,285 students registered, 25,151 watched at least one video, 15,391 tried at least one in-video quiz, 6,919 submitted at least one assignment, 2,417 took the final exam. 1303 earned the regular certificate." - since it was a good course overall that's probably a more realistic expectable participation funnel for future courses.
Rivva has a newspaper special today, including tons of self-affirmation

(did someone at g+ attend the gamification class?)

I wonder whether this alleged disaster of the #nexus4 isn't a brilliant example of retail gamification. I absolutely feel tempted to place an order just to see whether I can make it through the process.
"Instead of actually e-mailing each other, they would compose and draft messages but not send them. The other person would then log into the same account and read the drafts. This made those messages harder to trace, and the tactic has been used in the past by terrorists and teenagers, an unnamed law enforcement official told the AP."

unfortunately absolutely no idea for the #NaNoWriMo ; maybe a story involving cute but also a tad obtuse cats and sharp but also vicious squirrels?

omg it was you
interesting, 8,280 out of about 82,800 students earned a earned a Statement of Accomplishment for Coursera's Gamification class. It wasn't 'difficult', but you had to watch the lectures to pass the quizzes and there were 3 peer graded written assignments, so you had to put in some effort to pass. 10% is really a lot.
is anyone still using app.net?
