If Google's Management Doesn't Use Google+, Then Why Should You?

If Google's Management Doesn't Use Google+, Then Why Should You? | Machinimania | Scoop.it

It's really surprising to read that kind of article. I do not really see how a project can be taken seriously by the people, if management does not do it. Get your own review about it!

 

One of the most important rules in software is to eat your own dog food. The concept is simple: If you have confidence in your product, you use it.

 

Perhaps somebody should tell that to Google’s senior management, because the people in it are not eating their own dog food when it comes to Google+.

Angela Watercutter:  "Making movies for virtual reality is unlike any previous kind of filmmaking. You can’t “frame” a 360-degree shot. There are no cuts. And, weirdly enough, the characters can know you’re there."

21 Watermelon Sculptures That Are Too Skillfully Crafted to Eat

21 Watermelon Sculptures That Are Too Skillfully Crafted to Eat | Machinimania | Scoop.it
Artists across the globe have utilized watermelons as an unexpected canvas for their imaginative creations. For centuries, fruit carving has been a respected art in Thailand and was used solely for decorating royal tables. Now, this uncommon skill has been adopted by others who see watermelons as more than tasty treats. From geometric sculptures to intricate floral arrangements and impressive animals, these creatives have carved this summer fruit into edible, museum-worthy pieces. We've compiled some of our favorites, which are expertly crafted and too beautiful to munch on.
