oh noes, the +1 button no longer works for me. (for personal reasons I'm using a kinda oldish browser, but wth? triggering a binary flag shouldn't rely on any assumption; posting, reading, commenting, etc. is working fine)
Small Furry Hyrax Sings in Regional Dialects The foundations of complex language have been found in colonies of unusual furry animals called hyraxes.
I also don't get why Google made the new default profile page actually really nice looking. No motivation to change the pic and make it your own.
I don't get those arrows indicating the hotness of the trendyness on G+. If a term is amongst the 5 most popular terms right now it obviously is trending and I don't need the psychological barrier of clicking on sth which's momentum - according to the grey downwards arrow - might have peaked.

I don't know what's going on. 42 of the last 50 pitches for the MoMB have been for apps with nothing but some LaunchRock style landing page. For the time being I go back to the roots and only post public betas (and public alphas).
"If you are around people who are able to understand these things before you are, it's worthwhile to call yourself on it, and see if you can get into some discussions about what they see that you don't. I get particularly restless if it's obvious that there's something going on but I can't see it. I can't move on until I see it too ." I don't see it

google obviously has been messing with the CSE lately (more ads, rather annoying preview pics, wrongly displaying results of the 'did you mean' search term even if there is no single resulte, etc.).
huh, is the 'incoming' stream gone?
I probably need another year to get rid of my (hard, hybrid and soft) clutter. #2012
delicious has been a royal pita lately. but I've been using it since 2004, I love the service and it seems the avos guys are trying, so I don't wanna ditch them prematurely. but they do need to provide a stable service within the next couple of weeks or i'm gone for good.
