Jo Lane4,052Did you not mark your calendars? Shame, shame. Last year +Scott Cramer dared me to sit under my desk at work and share a picture; I did, he reshared and viral chaos ensued ;P It was so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event, so get under your desk (or kitchen table or coffee table), take a pic and post it on G+ with the ridiculously long hashtag #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay ! And, mind your noggin. Last year some companies even got their whole office involved; along with kids and pets - sitting under your desk is for everyone ;P It's Friday. You aren't really working anyway.

Jacob Dix37,043For some time now I have been doing a project, an experiment, an exploration, a study in light. My object has been the sky, through the limited vantage point of my kitchen window and my backyard. The result, so far, is this album called *Sky*: http://goo.gl/phGuR Forget about that for right now. Show everyone your own sky! The best, the worst.

and this, kids, is exactly why I won't answer to this title.

which is a shame, really, because it could have been so handy. because yes, there are plenty of situations where you want to address a woman formally and you don't know her marital status, so it's awkward. but since the title was appropriated by the feminist movement, it's no longer a politically/ideologically neutral term.

I still respect the choice of those of my female friends who prefer to be addressed as Ms and that's how I address them. But if someone addresses me as Ms, they get corrected. Because no, not all women are feminists.

here it is, my new travel mug

(though the colour isn't precisely right - at least not on my monitor.)

so, name ideas? it needs to be a boy's name, because in Hebrew mugs are masculine nouns and that's the way I roll.

oh wow, this is totally hilarious...

some of my favourite moments:
Christmas instead of crispness
the battering lasting all day
and that bit where the guy's talking about how they "wanted to take all the..." (I don't remember what now) and the subtitle reads "we wanted to take over" - kind of interesting when that's shown under the Apple logo...

hilarious video is hilarious.

really, Met Office, really?

you can't even forecast in the afternoon that it's going to come bucketing down in the evening?

I checked before going out to the supermarket. I could have taken my raincoat with me. The one with the hood. The one that would have kept me dry when getting the shopping to the car. I could have.

Oh yes, the commentary hashtag is so much fun - trouble is on Twitter you have to be so frugal, can't do the crazy hashtag parties that I indulge in here on the plus.

Which is why I was rather astonished to see examples of people wasting precious Twitter characters on typing the full word "hashtag"!

Also: I know I live under a rock but seriously, people say "hashtag" now as a kind of imitation of internetspeak? wow.

Introducing Google+ Collections on iOS

Google+ users on Android and the web are using Collections to connect with others around shared interests ranging from Homebrewing https://goo.gl/llrjAO, Climbing Junkie Photos https://goo.gl/Jeaaqr to Magical, Mystical Mountains https://goo.gl/OCM4mm and Marine Life https://goo.gl/4ISRZz. Today, we’re excited to announce Collections on iOS.

Create a Collection about something you’re interested in; make as many as you’d like;  and don’t worry about over sharing since people can follow just the Collections they like. 

Google+ users who have already created Collections asked us for the ability to customize who can see their Collections and if they could add taglines to describe them. We recently announced these features on Android and the web; today they are also available on iOS. To better explore the wide range of Collections https://goo.gl/437uWV already created, we announced last week that you can search for Collections on Google+ on Android as well. 

Thanks to everyone for these ideas. Please keep the feedback coming - we’re listening. Have questions about Collections?  Check out our Help Center http://goo.gl/zyIVMH or join this community for Help, Tips & Tricks: http://goo.gl/meRk8j.

To get Collections in your Google+ iOS app, download it here: https://goo.gl/0aYo0Y.

We can’t wait to see what Collections you create!___I know at least one person who will be pleased about this!

good news, +Brian Holt Hawthorne!

oh where oh where has meirav gone?

I've been to watch a duck race!

what's a duck race, you wonder?

basically, they chuck a whole load of rubber ducks into the river, each with a number on it, and people watch to see which number gets to the end first. very silly, very fun :)

here’s a picture of the multitude of ducks in action.

(no, I don't live near a river. this was in a town called Arundel, which does have a river, and apparently it's a regular annual event - we think we might go again!)

#31momentsinAugust day 31: something from your past

I've moved around so much over the years, there's not many objects I've kept from my past - but this old Tanach stayed on a shelf at my mum's over the years, and at some stage I retrieved it from there and took it home.

Tanach is the Hebrew term for what English speakers normally refer to as the Old Testament - otherwise known as the Hebrew Bible. I was given this one in 1975, when I finished primary school. it was something all the kids were given as a leaving present from the local council and I have the dedication with my name on it inside.

Back then, it meant nothing to me - which explains why it stayed on a shelf at my mum's for... ooh, over two decades for sure... I grew up secular, with strong atheistic and anti-religious influences (including my dad), and didn't know people who took... more »

#31momentsinAugust day 31: something from your past

I've moved around so much over the years, there's not many objects I've kept from my past - but this old Tanach stayed on a shelf at my mum's over the years, and at some stage I retrieved it from there and took it home.

Tanach is the Hebrew term for what English speakers normally refer to as the Old Testament - otherwise known as the Hebrew Bible. I was given this one in 1975, when I finished primary school. it was something all the kids were given as a leaving present from the local council and I have the dedication with my name on it inside.

Back then, it meant nothing to me - which explains why it stayed on a shelf at my mum's for... ooh, over two decades for sure... I grew up secular, with strong atheistic and anti-religious influences (including my dad), and didn't know people who took the Bible seriously - not even the people who gave us Bible lessons at school. for all of us - teachers and kids alike - it was just something we studied as part of our national heritage, not a source of truth.

Fast forward to today - as someone who knows and loves God, I love his written word, the Bible, and I'm thankful that I live in a time and place where it's so easy to get a copy and read it! and thankful also that I know Hebrew, so I can read at least that part of the Bible in its original language (though I'm not fluent at biblical Hebrew, so I find it very helpful to read translations into English as well).

And of course these days, as a believer in Jesus, I read the complete Bible - not just the first part. Though Jesus is in there right from the beginning. (If you want to know what I mean by that, you're welcome to read what I blogged about it:

played Battleships with husband after supper. result: one all.

much hilarity, especially as we invited a few of our cuddly toys to join in as moral support.

yes, it's that article I shared the other day, but interesting thoughts on +M Sinclair Stevens's post, and an interesting discussion. so hop over there and see!

UX: Ballpoint Pens  
Another article from The Atlantic musing on how so-called advances in technology killed a user experience: this time it's how cheap ballpoint pens made writing by hand so uncomfortable that people were more than ready to abandon it completely for keyboards.

However, there are still plenty of good reasons for writing by hand. Aside from the pure pleasure of it, studies have shown that one remembers more if one takes notes by hand. Many people, including myself, feel that we can't think unless we are physically writing.

Tools shape content. How we do something affects what we produce. Every tool, no matter how helpful, imposes constraints on our designs and our work habits. Just because something is new doesn't mean it's better...or it may be better at some things but at the cost of others.

#31momentsinAugust day 30: favourite book

my top favourite book by my top favourite author :)

(this particular one was a present from my husband for my 50th birthday. he knew I was wanting to upgrade to the NASB - a much better translation than the one I'd been using - and I'd been looking at different ones online and dithering for ages, so he asked if I wanted him to get it for me as a birthday present as it was a special birthday. this forced me into actually choosing already...)

ohai, plusverse. here's Barry the Yellow Barvaz* with a friend.


I totally blame +PicMonkey for this:

(ok, I kind of resized one because total mirror effect felt all wrong for Barry.)

* Barvaz is the Hebrew word for duck. Hence Barry.

and this, kids, is exactly why I won't answer to this title.

which is a shame, really, because it could have been so handy. because yes, there are plenty of situations where you want to address a woman formally and you don't know her marital status, so it's awkward. but since the title was appropriated by the feminist movement, it's no longer a politically/ideologically neutral term.

I still respect the choice of those of my female friends who prefer to be addressed as Ms and that's how I address them. But if someone addresses me as Ms, they get corrected. Because no, not all women are feminists.

Yes!!! exactly. exactly that.

If you force your language into the straitjacket of all those made-up rules, you end up sounding horribly stilted, thus making people twitch for all the wrong reasons. As you're bound to annoy some people, why not annoy the ones who are misguided?

Interesting review of an interesting book (paywalled though. sorry) which got me thinking.

"most of us struggle to accept capitalism, let alone admire it" - and why? because of this sense of unease with greed as motivation. but as the reviewer points out, it's not always greed - it can be totally acceptable and reasonable self-interest, not selfish greed but the attempt to provide yourself and your family with what you actually need.

sure, some people are very greedy. but as the author points out, riffing off what Churchill said about democracy, "[capitalism] is the worst form of economic management, except for all those other forms that have been tried."
