The "Google Plusification" of all of Google is proceeding slowly, and it seems likely that eventually Google+ will be a part of every Google property. Google Blogger just added a new Google+ integration that's interesting, that gives you an option to associate a Google+ Page with your blog rather than associating it with your personal Google+ Profile. You'd want to do this to help with better branding of your blog, and to separate your personal Google+ activities from the activities associated with your blog.

We're entering a brave new world, and I just experienced a piece of that world. It's this high tech nirvana thing that will supposedly be all wonderful and gooey. For over 10 years I've been using a "virtual bank" as my primary bank, specifically ING Direct. They offer excellent services and a high interest rate on all accounts. One aspect of this bank is it has no branches, and does not own a network of ATM's. That's more or less okay except for those times when someone does something as quaint as handing me a paper check. Haven't they heard of paypal?
As newspapers and other traditional media outlets continue to lay off reporters and even shut down their printing presses, one of the big questions has been what will fill the gap that is left — where will the journalism come from?
Curious idea - use of crowdfunding systems like Kickstarter to raise funds enabling journalists to cover stories. I suppose the result would be people paying for stories they'd like to be covered.
