I'm on Google+. I can send out invites. If you want an invite to Google+, send me a PM with your email address.

That is all.

It would be nice to have enough friends from TDC to justify creating a Click circle on Google+
Who here all has a Google+ account?

This would be a good joke if I didn't enjoy Google+ much more than Wave. Also if Wave wasn't available to everyone. Also, if Wave was already down. Yeah, it'd probably be funnier if Wave was already down.

I am one of the few people left not seeing the need of a 3rd party to keep in touch with my friends? Perhaps I am just quaintly old fashioned.

A phone service provider is a third party, is it not? Can't always get together with a person in person, especially when you don't live anywhere near each other.

Yes, but to the best of my knowledge a phone/email does not disclose my information to anyone else bar the intended recipients.

Google Plus does not disclose your information to anyone else bar the intended recipients.

For a change.

How is it that those Winkle twins are able to sue the facebook guy for a shedload of money, for supposedly stealing their idea, and yet it's totally okay for google to make such a blatant ripoff of facebook?
I'm a little confused by that.

Nah. Wave was interesting, but it had a lot of issues. In implementation, speed AND the invite system. But technology developed for Wave at least made it into other Google services, like their collaborative document editing, which is now a part of Docs.

Facebook was an idea, which actually can't just be patented as-is. It's the specific implementation of such an idea that is patentable. The patentable part of Facebook is their algorithms - how they "calculate" and manage the whole contact relations thing, stuff like that. According to Wikipedia, 'a [software] claim is patentable if it contains "a mathematical formula [and] implements or applies the formula in a structure or process which, when considered as a whole, is performing a function which the patent laws were designed to protect".'

Thus, if Google Plus works very differently in the background from Facebook, it's likely not infringing any patents. The fact that they're putting Circles central to the system already shows their algorithm is sufficiently different. In the end, it's an alternative implementation to a similar idea.

Besides, I'm more surprised at Fortresscraft versus Minecraft. Now THAT would be a straight rip-off.


I still may have G+ invites left, by the way. I honestly can't tell, though.

Minecraft itself is not a wholly original idea. See dwarf fortress, infiniminer, and all the games similar in style that minecraft actually draws its inspiration from.

Not to mention that minecraft generally welcomes the competitors that are "ripping" them off. i remember when terraria was first released, notch tweeting about how great of a game it was, and that he needed to get back to work instead of playing it so much.

i had not heard of fortress craft until just now, and everything i read kept referencing minecraft, and to which one was better. Thats free publicity for minecraft.

It's crazy how much money minecraft brings in on a day-to-day basis, even after all this time its been out. I love minecraft, but keeping up with the numbers is almost more fascinating than the game itself.

As for google+ ripping off facebook, thats a shot in the dark guys. If you were ON google+ you'd see that its VASTLY different than facebook. Not to mention, that social networking is not the sole property of any company. now if google made a social networking site and called it bookface, then they'd get the bejeesus sued out of them, just from the name alone.

if i write something on my google+ wall (thats a stream, right?) and Internet Person and Real Life Person BOTH reply (yet they aren't friends and arent in the same groups) can they still see that they both replied to it. see the reply of the other person?

I'm pretty sure you're going to have to double post. If you share something with two different circles, both circles comment in the same place.

I'm pretty sure if you're on Google+ you have invites until it stops saying "Invite soandso to Google+" when you add someone to a circle or double click their name in your circle-making chamber
