I love the 1984 and Matrix references in this video. The animators at Taiwan’s New Media Animation, have once again produced a delicious roast of the news of the day.
By the process described in detail in the Mashable tech blog, I have already started trying out the timeline. It seems perfect for uploading ancient pictures taken in the 70s and 80s, and putting them in context.
But, it seems that it will be a lot of work to get my timeline looking decent. I think most people won’t bother, and might stampede away. This doesn’t necessarily mean G+ will easily acquire the defectors. They will probably be averse to social networking, and no more likely to trust scary Google than scarier Mark Zuckerberg.
