To send Chris off in style, we will be having one last epic Chris Chabot photowalk -- and what better place for a photowalk with Chris than the annual Burning Man Decompression event. If you have never shot Decom before, you are in for a treat.  It's a visual smorgasbord of pure delight. We will meet at the *second* entrance, near the corner of 20th and Minnesota Streets at 2:30 pm sharp.  Bring your Canon or Nikon or iPhone or Android... or better yet, be like Chris and bring a Leica!   Whatever you shoot, come and hang out with some great SF photographers and help send Chris off in style.  All skill levels welcome. It's $15 to enter Decom.  More details on the event here:  http://goo.gl/XkJlgnIt's the Chris Chabot Farewell Decompression Photowalk!!!!2013-10-13 23:30:00125

Thomas Hawk7,791,806The one and only @111863388502434056486 Guru @103519655975029093996 is coming to town and we are going to celebrate in style.  Join us on Thursday, October 11th for a special dinner / photowalk.   We are going to start the evening off at 5:30pm at Henry Hunan's on Sansome Street in San Francisco (note there are several Henry Hunan's, this is the one on Sansome in North Beach).  We'll enjoy some of San Francisco's best chinese food and then head up to go shoot the tallest building in SF, the Transamerica Building at sunset/dusk.  We'll shoot the building from the Montgomery Street overlook -- one of the best locations to shoot This iconic William Pereira spire from.   Afterwards we'll float around North Beach shooting more of the historic architecture and night life before ending up the night at Specs' Twelve Adler Museum for a few later evening adult beverages.   Specs' is a throwback to old school San Francisco that the SF Weekly describes as "one of the few bars left where you can ask for a martini and get a cold glass of gin and a little vermouth without having to answer a bunch of damn fool questions." Rumor has it the smoothest dude alive @101651096660571767183 will also be joining us from NYC and @105873814765821560444 will be up from Los Angeles.   What a great night for photography this will be.  Come on out for a great G+ Photography evening!A San Francisco Dinner/Photowalk with Gordon Laing2012-10-11 17:30:00131  
Drink And Click™ SF537Allright, not only is this the September #DrinkAndClickSF event, but it is also the "Birthday Hangover" party for @105502659434999281505 @103914809547503560483 and Myself (@106719979779567208605) who all share the most holy of birthdays, September 19th.  What makes a #DrinkAndClick successful? Well of course, the photographers and friends who attend. But BESIDES that, it is great bars, great pub grub, and crazy street characters. @107625658878407076244 identified the perfect location for that this month. The home of the Grateful Dead, and some of the most colorful characters this city has to offer, Haight Street! So we will be meeting at the legendary Kezar Pub between 5:00PM and 6:30PM. http://plus.google.com/106808013026678003045 From there we will walk right across the street for some Golden Hour photos in Golden Gate park. I can almost guarantee a hacky sack game will be happening.  About 7:00PM, we will begin our walk up the legendary Haight Street, stopping at 2 pubs (to be named later), and aiming to end up at Buena Vista Park at 9:00 PM. Make sure to bring your tripods, as on a clear night, you can get some amazing photos of the Golden Gate Bridge and Downtown San Francisco.  From there, it is a free for all of drinking and clicking. We are having #DrinkAndClick chapter wide challenges this month! Please attend this event to be included in the challenges.  https://plus.google.com/events/ccqtjh576u9vfapvhs5b5ulaim4  Hope to see you there!Drink And Click SF - September2012-09-20 17:00:00133

My take on the Mashable Google+ story.

Mashable has the top story out on Techmeme right now and it's about Google+ http://goo.gl/5lvJRM It paints a pretty negative picture of Google+ as a failure of epic proportions for Google.
I joined Google+ on the very first day it opened to the public. I may have missed a few days here or there, but I think I have posted every single day since it launched over 4 years ago. I've been very active on the site and truly believe that it could have been something great.
I think it's pretty obvious to everyone involved now though that Google has completely given up on Google+. Here are some of my observations on 4 years of Google+ -- they are not all related and this is more of a rambling list than anything from someone who probably spent thousands of hours using the product.

My take on the Mashable Google+ story.

Mashable has the top story out on Techmeme right now and it's about Google+ http://goo.gl/5lvJRM It paints a pretty negative picture of Google+ as a failure of epic proportions for Google.

I think it's pretty obvious to everyone involved now though that Google has completely given up on Google+. Here are some of my observations on 4 years of Google+ -- they are not all related and this is more of a rambling list than anything from someone who probably spent thousands of hours using the product.
1. Either you are all in or you aren't. You don't spend $100 million, $200 million, $300 million on something and then quit. I believe that when Google launched Google+, they were all in. All in means using every possible advantage and resource to compete with Facebook. Facebook's market cap is $264 billion. So unless Google spent at least double that, they were not all in with social in my book.
In the early days it felt like Google was all in. The company promoted Google+ like nothing they'd ever promoted. Bonuses were tied to it, they were leveraging their other successful products to promote it (Search, Gmail, Youtube, hell, even the Google homepage itself) -- but somewhere along the way they changed their mind and they were not all in. They gave up. They quit. If they were in for $1 billion they should have been in for $5 billion or $50 billion.
2. When Vic Gundotra left Google, that was it for Google+. Despite all the lip service about Google still caring about Google+, from that day forward Google had quit and were just salvaging what remaining value that they could get from the property. Vic carried the clout of Senior Management as Google and had a personal passion and conviction for Google+ like nothing I'd ever seen. Vic was publicly listed as Senior Management by Google on their management team page. https://goo.gl/ylL3DV Not only was Vic Senior Management, he was part of the "L Team" the very top Google Senior executives that worked with Google CEO Larry Page. http://goo.gl/ptZSB
I have no idea why Vic left Google. Was it Vic's doing because Google promised to be all in with social and then quit? Was it's Google's first step to begin downsizing Google+? One thing that was clear to me, Vic was all in with Google+. He was a passionate leader, promoter and defender of the product inside and outside of Google. I got to know Vic a little bit during Google+ and consider him a friend. We are now even Facebook friends here too. smile emoticon I think the world of Vic. Facebook should hire him.
Maybe someday before I die he and I can have a drink and I'll hear Vic's perspective -- maybe not though too, I'd suspect much of Vic's experience at Google+ is contractually undisclosable at this point.
One of Google's most senior executives who was one of the most passionate leaders for a product was replaced by who? Dave Besbris? Nothing against Dave at all, but if Google+ was going to have to fight to defend itself inside of Google it needed someone of Vic's caliber. Dave was not the visionary that Vic was -- he had no vision, no power, no access to the executive leadership.
3. By giving up on Google+ Google has likely permanently killed itself with social. Not only did they waste however many millions by not finishing what they started, but they already had a shaky reputation as a company that abandons products (and by extension hangs users who commit time and energy into their products out to dry). Wave, Buzz, Reader, Orkut, Picasa, and now the grandaddy of them all Google+. It was going to be hard enough to compete with Facebook as it was. By quitting early, Google lost what little goodwill they might have to seed something in the future. Who will ever take Google serious with social again?
4. Google is going to pivot now according to Bradley Horowitz. Their first pivot is with photos. I love all things photography on the web, but I think Google Photos has so many problems. I don't even know where to begin at this point. The first thing you need to be able to do with any photos product is effectively upload photos to the web. Google Photos has a bug right now that probably won't be fixed for several weeks that will not let you upload RAW files to the web. These problems should have been worked out before launch in my opinion, not now later. Google Photos doesn't recognize the EXIF keyword data with your photos which makes it far less effective in search -- something that Yahoo's Flickr has been able to do for a decade. Google Photos downsizes your photos while their competitor Flickr gives every single user a full terabyte of high res photos.
5. Another sign that Google was dead that came right about the time Vic left was the employee response to the product. As a top user I engaged with tons of Googlers almost on a daily basis when they were promoting the product. I saw their passion with Vic. They used Google+. They promoted Google+. They held photowalks with Google+. They were excited and engaged about the product. You could tell Google+ had died when you saw the Google employees themselves stop using it, stop promoting it, stop caring about it. It was like night and day, black and white. All of a sudden an army of Googlers who were using the product just switched off and went radio silent almost over night.
In the second half of 2011 when Google+ opened, Larry Page posted 48 public posts on Google+. In the first 7 months of this year, he has posted 3. If this is not the clearest signal of what Google Senior Management thinks of Google+ I don't know what is. Google's other cofounder, Sergey Brin has not posted publicaly in almost a year. What message does that send to people inside Google and outside of Google?
In the early days of Google+ I interacted with dozens of Google employees. Very few of those same people use Google+ any more today.
Maybe Google never had a chance anyways and they recognized this and cut their losses, but I really believed that they did have a chance and should have doubled down even when things got tough. It's still a good product. I will still post photos there every day most likely, but without the commitment from Google it will never be a truly meaningful social product. I felt like I got a good few years out of G+ social, sort of like I got a good year out of FriendFeed with social as well. Times and seasons for everything I guess. Google+ was a lot of fun for a little bit there though wasn't it?
Whatever the case, it is official. Facebook has won social. There will still be room for other minor social networks. Ello and Flickr are two examples that I personally think the world of, but big picture social? Yeah, Facebook wins -- and now they most likely get to reap the rewards of monetizing the world's most powerful social network for years to come, and maybe even the world's most powerful search engine too, when they eventually get around to launching that down the road. And now Robert Scoble gets to tell everyone I told you so. wink emoticon

Google Photos' uploader seriously needs some work.  

I was optimistic about the potential of Google Photos but lately the uploader is becoming completely worthless.

For the first few weeks it seemed to work ok.  Just point the desktop uploader at your folders and it began the upload process.  It would get several thousand photos a day and upload them to my Google Photos count.

I've been uploading non-stop since the service launched 24/7 and thus far it's uploaded about 164,000 photos.  Despite the fact that I've got hundreds of thousands of photos still to go though, the upload process has now grown to an absolute crawl.  Yesterday it only uploaded 26.  At this rate, Google photos will not be able to upload my entire library before I die.

Google Photos' uploader seriously needs some work.  

I was optimistic about the potential of Google Photos but lately the uploader is becoming completely worthless.

For the first few weeks it seemed to work ok.  Just point the desktop uploader at your folders and it began the upload process.  It would get several thousand photos a day and upload them to my Google Photos count.

I've been uploading non-stop since the service launched 24/7 and thus far it's uploaded about 164,000 photos.  Despite the fact that I've got hundreds of thousands of photos still to go though, the upload process has now grown to an absolute crawl.  Yesterday it only uploaded 26.  At this rate, Google photos will not be able to upload my entire library before I die.

While I've been told over and over and over again that this product is not for me and that it's only for the average person who only shoots on a mobile phone, I guess I'm still disappointed because I had an outside hope that the service would actually work for me.

The thing is that there is definitely activity going on with the uploader.  It is reminding me about every 2 minutes of all the photos that it cannot upload for me.  At first these just felt like larger photos, panorama dng files made with lightroom and things that were obviously larger files, now it seems to just be rejecting anything RAW though (or at least I'm assuming that is what is happening).

I've got the fastest residential bandwidth connection that I can purchase right now through Comcast so I'm pretty sure it's not a bandwidth problem.  Also my photos make it to Flickr daily just fine.

I do wonder if maybe it's a throttling thing.  Maybe Google doesn't want people to put more than 100,000 photos on the site and so they purposely throttle uploads at a certainly level? 

Anyways, thus far Google Photos has largely been a disappointing and frustrating experience despite the promise and potential I felt it held.  Maybe it will eventually get better though.___
