Some excellent posts on Google+ from +Eli Fennell and +Christian Schlobach are very insightful and in itself a nice showcase of a “Long conversation” on Google+. Even including the different approaches of referencing and sharing!

Funny enough, this conversation immediately reminded me of Sherry Turkle. I read her books “The Second Self” (1984) and “Life on the Screen” (1995) when they got published decades ago.

Just discovered her newest book “Alone Together” (2011) which is about … social networks.

I do not see her on Google+ – yet?! I would much more like to circle her than+George Takei 😉
