  1. On social networking; I’ve spent more that the last decade in Yahoo! Groups and to me, that’s what google+ seems to be. Brilliant for separating you interests to specific groups. However, my network of friends and family lives on facebook and I use Twitter for mainly a read-only network for instant news and even my twitter account is separated into topical groups just saying. My wordpress blog is there so I don’t use facebook as a personal soapbox (as much). Therefore, I don’t necessarily want these services to merge or try to imitate each other. With all that said, what the Hell am I going to do when my iTools space goes away in June?!?!?!

    Thanks guys!
