Bringing the new Google+ to more people







Last November, (http://goo.gl/Yn6mjA) we introduced a preview on web of a fully redesigned Google+ to make it easier for people to discover and connect around unique and interesting things. From a Japanese astronaut sharing his experience in the International Space Station (http://goo.gl/JZQ7wH) to food lovers sharing their passion for breadmaking (http://goo.gl/wEh0C8), people are using Google+ to explore their interests more than ever.







Since introducing the new version, twice as many Collections are followed per day and there are 1.6 million daily new Community joins. Many of you have also shared feedback and requests, and we’ve been listening (http://goo.gl/IMLvy7).







Today, we’re announcing three new updates for Google+.







First, some new …

It's kinda funny that to learn a few things about #GoogleSpaces I have to come to Google+, because I'm not aware of any Google Spaces I can join for that.







It's like they're losing the battle, man.







That being said... if you have or a member of any active Spaces, post me a link in the comments. I'd like to check out some Spaces.

I Believe by Blessed Union of Souls

I Believe by Blessed Union of Souls



In case you didn't know, the 90s was full of great music. I had completely forgotten about Blessed Union of Souls until someone messaged me something today and the phrasing reminded me of a phrase in their song Hey Leonardo. That lead me down a nostalgic path, which I've very much been enjoying. And now I share some of that Blessed Union of the soul with you.







I believe that love is the answer. I believe love will find a way.







This song talks about...



- hate



- violence



- racism







So, it's probably more relevant now than ever before.

Pre-Order of The Division: IT'S MINE!

Pre-Order of The Division: IT'S MINE!



When my pre-order copy of The Division came in, that my wife got for me, I was pretty excited. So excited in fact, I made this goofy video with Kinect's crazy features.







Yes, that's two of me. And yes, we do talk to each other.







As someone who has worked with both blue and green screens, the feature on Kinect to do this without either was pretty impressive. And if you've never played around in the Upload Studio app, or whatever they call it--which is where you do all this fun stuff--I highly suggest it. It's a lot of fun.

Jessica Wright's Double Vision (short story and opportunity)

Jessica Wright is victim #7 in my morbid project I Will Kill You for $5. And she didn't go down easy. I offered to write this story for her as payback for her boyfriend, Josef, recording my standup comedy gig last October. And thus began the longest, longest, longest short story I've ever written. Not even sure it qualifies anymore as such.
