Google+ Photo Page Directory

-> HobbyMan on December 30 2011
To make it a little easier to navigate through the large number of G+ Photo Theme Pages (currently 96), I got back to my coding roots and made a page here that displays the pages by day. By default, it will always display the current days pages. But, you can use the dropdown to view all the other days pages too

10 Things G+ Users Need to Remember

-> HobbyMan on September 17 2011
There are many different reasons why Google Plus is different from other destinations in the social space. Anyone with even a minimal knowledge of the history of the internet will know that it has been, at least up till now a playground, relatively harmless where no one gets hurt. True, there have been many tales of people losing their jobs, husbands/wives, boyfriends/girlfriends or both from rash postings or indiscreet photographs reaching the wrong eyeballs.
