Google+ Local: Good start but… needs MORE

I am sure Googlers are already working on improvements after this #googleplusupdate , but it is worth noting that even though integration is good, this is not perfect.

1/ Ergonomics?
I have a problem with the search field:
How can this search field change between two sections in G+ when it obviously is on top of these sections, in its very container?
When you click on local, the search field splits into two and you can then search for a place…
Well, that's not very logical and should not be happening: Either this field is in the main area, at the top of the Local section, or search should be adapted for it across the whole G+ experience

2/ Sharing?
I know it might seem strange, but considering the broader "targets" you communicate with on G+, I've always been kind of struggling with the options offered to you, and this is becoming increasingly important with updates such as G+ Local:
Why would I be limited to my circles? Can't automatic groups be generated offering more options than just "public"?
I've always been thinking of a way to address my french-speaking followers without bothering the rest of you guys. I could of course put every French-speaking person I follow in a circle but… more than the inconvenience of doing this one by one, it would only help me target people I circle, not people following me!

Why is this more important with local? Well I know everyone is a global citizen nowadays, but… we should have an option to share with people speaking our language. Nope, I don't write reviews for a restaurant in COURBEVOIE (Paris suburb) in English.
Better even would be a simple option to share with "nearby" users, making a post available to… people within say… 50kms.

I'm sure there are a lot of other improvements but… having lost my smartphone, I have no way of checking the mobile version, which obviously is the most important part of g+ local.

What do you think of the update?

#project52 #2012project52 [22/52 – Self Portrait]

Something terrible happened this week.
I was thinking about the self portrait I had to shoot, setting everything up, when my camera decided to rebel.

It said:
"Why would this be a selfportrait of the PHOTOGRAPHER? Am I not what matters the most?"

I was kind of shocked at first… but then thought to myself the poor little guy (girl?) was not wrong after all, and decided to let it be the star of the week.

I hereby introduce you to my camera, or more precisely my Macro Lens : Tamron 60mm 2,0 Di II macro

#project52 #2012project52 [21/52 – Mostly White]

Whoops, looks like i'm a week late for this week's theme 🙁
It's not excuse but at least it will explain the shot:
I just started a new job last week and… felt like starting from scratch qualified pretty well for this mostly white theme.

So here it is, a notebook, from day 1 at this new job, ready to be scribbled in for quite some time (I hope ;)).

Of course, this is for +Project52-2012 curated by +Giuseppe Basile +Kate Church moderated by +Greg Berdan +LaDonna Pride +Sue Butler
But also for +Monochrome Monday #monochromemonday by +Charles Lupica +Hans Berendsen +Jerry Johnson +Manuel Votta +Steve Barge
Oh… and Week 22's shot is coming tomorrow :).

If you want an easy way to create an online porfolio, check out Touchfolio

It's a free portfolio, provided as a WordPress theme.

The great thing about this theme is that it is responsive, touch compatible and… quite unique in its navigation (on a desktop, left click-and-drag on a photo, right/left to see photos from a project, up/down to switch to another project.)

Simple, free, original, why not give it a shot? 🙂

Via +Smashing Magazine (well, their twitter counterpart as they are not actually active on g+)

Cheap Jerseys china Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and Brothers Karamazov made a considerable impact on me because my capacity to appreciate literature had improved somewhat. Then a new factor started affecting my response to novels. Novels that touched upon events and introduced characters with which I was familiar or with which I could relate attracted me more than others. Cheap Jerseys china

cheap jerseys I had some nerves. I was shaking a little bit going out there the first one I had, the one timers in the Skills Challenge Relay. I didn’t know if I was going to be able to hit the net. Twenty seven year old American actor Brady Corbet makes an auspicious directorial debut with The Childhood of a Leader. Set in the aftermath of the First World War, the film explores the origins of a fascist leader, one modelled somewhat on Mussolini, but given an extra frisson of contemporary significance by Corbet’s decision to make this future megalomaniac an American by birth and parentage. Blond haired and angelic looking, but with an inscrutably baleful disposition reminiscent of Corbet’s own turn as one of the polite teenage sociopaths in Michael Haneke’s US remake of Funny Games, this seven year old child (played by Tom Sweet) is the son of a US diplomat (Liam Cunningham) whose job negotiating the Treaty of Versailles stands in ironic contrast to the divide and conquer mentality we’re left to imagine his son will embrace later in life cheap jerseys.

Not everything ending up in "What's hot" really is

well… interesting.
Some of it is fun, some of it is "exclusive", but I found this one actually interesting.

In a few easy steps, Michael S. Schneider explains how easy it is to count (multiply/divide) when using the binary system.

Easy to follow and… as easy to apply ;).
