I would really be grateful for a direct invite.

OK, I joined and added Max to my mudcat circle. Now what? How do I fine other mudcatters? I joined for the paltalk-like possibilities. I have not joined other social network sites (except mudcat).

Google+ differs from other social networks (for now) by decentralizing the connection to others. Circles are only meaningful and accessible by the individual. Putting me in your circle didn't create or define any connection to you for me but it did notify me, which gave me the choice to choose how to connect with you, that is which circle to put you in.

I have insight into G+ and indeed its just another social network right now. However, the next evolution of a social web is for them to allow folks like me to customize, compartmentalize, repurpose and implement their powerful infrastructure to use inside this site to handle the heavy technology, programming, liability, legality, ethics that go along with MEMBERSHIP and the heavy bandwidth stuff we want with audio and video.

Privacy, personal identity and property, freedom of expression, safety and security are volatile topics AND actually very dangerous personal and political issues at this day and age of the development of technology and society, and it is my opinion that its going to get much worse. This is threatening to our autonomy cuz Mom and Pop shops like us can't keep up anymore, and folks like Microsoft make sure of it with bully fear mongering and technical standards manipulation, a la the IE 8 warns that mudcat.org is a dangerous dangerous site (for a different reason that it actually is). Anyway, its a suck hole that this here folky aint got the time for. I'm going to need to partner with the least threatening giant.

So, this is just to take advantage in some nice video sharing that I've been enjoying and feeling inspired by, you don't have to use the other features or engage in anything over there. I'll make a resource right here on mudcat to find each other and connect. And I do believe that the account you create their will have some long term utility here.

Come on in, Garg, the water's fine. . .

Any of you can also PM me to get my particulars on Google+. I have invites to send if you send me an email address (you need a Google profile to use it and that comes with gmail, for all intents and purposes). I've been able to get a couple of folks set up there this week.

It takes a while of clicking on stuff to get the hang of things, but it is an interesting promising social site. More refined than FB, and with Google behind it, it shows a lot of potential for Generation 2 of Mudcat. If you are curious about Generation XIV of Mudcat, look up the Mudcat Enterprise fiction thread, an awesome tale of far away places.

Spoke with Sir max on there last night. Site has potential.
If you don't have your mike or camera connected, you can still download the app, and chat in words, like other places. There's a screen at the side of the pics.

Thanks for the heads-up Max - I'm following this thread and will see what I can do about joining as soon as I have the headspace to take it on board. I think this project is something that will grow gradually, and folks will come to it in their own time. I'm certainly interested, and grateful to you for bringing it up.

Wot, dangerous? Little old us????

Sounds like fun. I have to admit that Facebook and Twitter have me more, because I have them in my browser at all times. Though I doubt heavily that Google won't do a browser extension for Chrome...

Here be me, it sounds like singarounds would be fun.

Sorry, Susan. I'm not set up for joining online sings, as much fun as it might be.

I also don't know what a huddle is and how to respond to an invitation for one.

I'm interested but will follow up after I've got the technology in place--I need some sort of camera and a better mike. Given that I'm no techie, that sort of thing depends on my sweetheart's available time & energy. (And then, once there's a camera I'll need to tidy up the mess behind me, and comb my hair, and...)
