Google Plus Welcomes Minors, Still Has Issues to Resolve

At the end of January, Google's social network Google Plus quietly opened the doors to minors ages 13 and over.

But this is soooooo kewl, I think it'll be a while.Here's a bit of context: Nosh.me is a suggestive namea mobile web app to locate restaurants. And being a bunch of hard core geeks, they put together a wicked kewl 404 page. What makes it the best? It's a mini movie. Nay. It's a mini action movie. A missing page, a special ops team, guns.

Seven years ago someone mentioned 'weblogs' and I winced. Why would someone want to go and put their journaling thoughts online for all to see? Good god, what madness is taking over society?

Immunization Schedules Meet the Web - A Great Marriage of Health and Technology

Do you have children going to school in the fall and the schools have requested vaccination records?  I hear you sigh, if yes, and wondering where all those darn yellow cards are filed. If your filing is like mine, hopefully not, it may take you hours to find all the information for the school.  It may even take days if you have moved and switched physicians as often as I.  ...more
