my Google+

About: seth russell - google+

  OMG ... i finally got a perminant short catchy URL  for my Google profile ...

It is google.com/+SethRussell

This kind of thing apparently requires one to have a cellurlar phone that can recieve a sms message.

Incidentally it might be interesting to compare this URL to my facebook one ...
... which is facebook.com/russell.seth

The latter, should you not be signed on to the facebook and be my friend, yields just my picture and the oppurtunity to join facebook.  The former yields all of my public posts.   I obviously prefer the G+ url ... and that they let me use my name with no wigging around.

And, strangely enough, my twitter URL is substantually the same
... twitter.com/SethRussell  ... er, even better ... but then there is not all that much content there. 

Now when i can be identified just as SethRussell ... er then i will have arrived ... which unfrotunately  is not sufficiently unique ... however #toothlessfoodie , me thinks is quite unique enough.  But, of course i must stake out that niche in the universe ... .


Here is my Google+ profile.  I'm just playing with this to see what it adds to the mix.

It's not just about Google vs Facebook

Much attention has focused on Google+ as a Facebook competitor, but to view the system solely within that context is short-sighted. The consequences of the launch of Google+ are wider-reaching, more exciting and undoubtedly more controversial.

Google+ is the rapidly growing seed of a web-wide social backbone, and the catalyst for the ultimate uniting of the social graph. All it will take on Google's part is a step of openness to bring about such a commoditization of the social layer. This would not only be egalitarian, but would also be the most effective competitive measure against Facebook.

As web search connects people to documents across the web, the social backbone connects people to each other directly, across the full span of web-wide activity. (For the avoidance of doubt, I take "web" to include networked phone and tablet applications, even if the web use is invisible to the user.)

Search removed the need to remember domain names and URLs. It's a superior way to locate content. The social backbone will relieve our need to manage email addresses and save us laborious "friending" and permission-granting activity " in addition to providing other common services such as notification and sharing.
... anyway i'm starting to use it more and more.

How different is it from facebook?
I don't know yet.  The big thing is the ability to make multiple circles, where perhaps (not sure of this yet) your friends don't know how you have calssified them.  For example i could put you into a circle of ass holes, but not disclose to you that i think you an ass hole.

I started to join, but then they seemed to want to have free access to all my pictures at which point I stopped.  Will try again when I delve into it some more.

they asked me whether i wanted to share my picassa album or not ... i opted to share it.  on your picassa album you can mark each album shareable or not ... so i don't think you would be disclosing any info that you have not already made available to the entire world anyway.
