Chris Chabot140,726Dave Powell from shoottokyo.com is in town and organizing a photowalk Sunday the 14th.

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

Discover posts that your friends have +1’d

Many of the best photos, articles and videos we find online are the ones recommended by friends. So we're making it easier to discover these recommendations in your Google+ stream. Starting today:

- We'll occasionally highlight posts that were +1'd by people in your circles
- And if you +1 a post, we may highlight it to your friends as well

Circles help you control who can see your activity, as well as what appears in your main stream. So with today’s launch:

- You can visit your settings to decide who, if anyone, might see your +1s highlighted in the stream: http://goo.gl/CtZXk
- In all cases: friends will only see +1s and posts they already had permission to see, we’re just calling extra attention to them
- And of course: if you’re seeing too much activity from a given circle,you can... more »

For the data geeks out there .. -- in plain sight now is Google's competitive advantage .. -- we pay less for more performance.

Now the decade of work we put into NoSQL is available to everyone using GCP.  One way it shows that we've been working on this longer than anyone else: 99% read latency is 6ms vs ~300ms for other systems.___For the data geeks out there .. -- in plain sight now is Google's competitive advantage .. -- we pay less for more performance.

Right about now everyone is going to start looking back at 2013, I just realized that I only posted about 40 images to G+ on 2013, down from about 250+ in 2012. So sorry everyone, I think it was a case of social-burnout.

Here is to hoping for a more photo-productive 2014.

Where the rubber met the road
San Francisco, CA. 2013.

I'm a liberal, I say I support organized labor, their right to do collective bargaining, to strike, etc.

Last week a strike against Unity Health started across my house at St. Mary's Hospital. The strikers are using noise tactics to get noticed (whistles, horns, sirens), and it went on for about 24 hours (even through the night).

I was fairly tired of the noise, and the nuisance -- but then I remembered that my inconvenience is the least I could do to support union labor in America. --

Good luck Local 39.

I already knew that there was no shame in Washington ... -- but If i behaved this way at work, I'd get fired in no-time .. 

My review would read: Accomplished nothing, stood in the way of others, caused harm to the company.

Why some parts of America support this behavior is beyond me. --

I already knew that there was no shame in Washington ... -- but If i behaved this way at work, I'd get fired in no-time ..

Old Friends
San Francisco, CA. 2013.

Just so everyone won't forget that I can take a picture or two once in a while. -- I admit it, I've gone AWOL, haven't posted a photo in months, call it a mix of social burnout, not wanting to touch a computer outside of work, and getting ready for the upcoming baby.

So whats new in G+? --

Perspective'
Sequoia National Park, CA. 2013.

Its easy to loose perspective, spend too much time doing one thing, and you'll forget why the other things are so important. I guess the moments when you carefully give each part of your life its due, its called balance.

Like a lot of you I spend most of my time at work, or thinking about work. Then I get to spend some time with family and friends, and I'm reminded of what I really appreciate.

Gotta run .. late for work again.

Sequoia National Forest, CA. 2013.

We sat at the big round table, 4 couples in our 30's trying our hardest to beat the table full of blue haired ladies in their 80's.  We were no match for their years of experience with the game.

Clean Slate
Kauai, HI. 2013.

Poipu Beach in Kauai at Sunrise.  -- About the best thing I've done for my photography lately was take several months off from shooting / processing.  Now that I'm back at working on images, it feels fresh and easy.

I'm about to get on an airplane to visit the Google NYC office, going to be there until thursday, hoping to get at least 1 iconic skyline image, anyone have any suggestions on where to shoot the NY skyline from?

+Mike Elgan gets social media .. and gets G+ .. 

How Google+ can transform your career.

Google+ can make you better at whatever you do for a living, if you do it right. 

I’m going to tell you exactly how to get started with a method of engagement that works well only on Google+, and will tap you directly into every conversation on Google+ related to your business (or interests).

Fasten your seatbelt, because you're about to become a knowledgeable and influential expert using a simple Google+ technique I call "Persistent Engagement":

American Heroes
San Francisco, CA. 2012.

This was going to be a really long post about who I think are today's american heroes. -- I had a really long post about my own path as an immigrant in this country.  But maybe thats just going to have to wait for another time.

I'll just say that today, I have a lot more hope that I did years ago.  Marriage equality has really turned the corner recently, and even if immigration reform does not happen now, the changing demographics gives me hope that its now a matter of time before it does.

About this photo: Shot at the Fleishacker Pool in San Francisco before its recent demise, I was captivated by the scene. Heavy processing with photoshop, lightroom and On-One perfect effects.

Between a rock and a hard place
Death Valley, CA. 2011.

I broke my promise of not checking G+ during a major update, and spent the last day helping users with the new +1 posts features.

For most users plus posts will be a source of new people to follow, and a way to get their content out to more people, photographers specially will benefit quite nicely, since photos get plus oned alot.

Hi folks! -- I'm so happy to be able to share this announcement today.

Discover posts that your friends have +1’d

Many of the best photos, articles and videos we find online are the ones recommended by friends. So we're making it easier to discover these recommendations in your Google+ stream. Starting today:

- We'll occasionally highlight posts that were +1'd by people in your circles
- And if you +1 a post, we may highlight it to your friends as well

Circles help you control who can see your activity, as well as what appears in your main stream. So with today’s launch:

- You can visit your settings to decide who, if anyone, might see your +1s highlighted in the stream: http://goo.gl/CtZXk
- In all cases: friends will only see +1s and posts they already had permission to see, we’re just calling extra attention to them
- And of course: if you’re seeing too much activity from a given circle, you can always turn down its volume, or exclude it from Home entirely: http://goo.gl/EFLOy

We're rolling out this feature over the next few days, so look for the new “+1’d this" header, and let us know what you think!

I dont understand why congress is complaining that companies take full advantage of the law.

Wasn't it congress that passed the same laws that Apple is living by, wasn't it congress that made it legal for apple to move money off-shore to avoid paying taxes?

The whole thing just reeks of political theater, big corporations lobby congress for favorable tax laws, then take full advantage of them, and then congress slaps them on the wrist and appears to be outraged, then next election, the same congress will be taking money from the same corporations to pass more favorable legislation for big business.

A real fix would take political courage, an overhaul of the tax system would mean upsetting the same people that are giving politicians money to run their campaigns, I just don't see that happening.
