Google+ versus Hangouts
It's been fascinating watching Ingress players shift from in-game chat to Google+ and then move to Hangouts. Like Facebook, it's not easy in Google+ to know and limit who can view your information.

Re: Next stop for Vic Gundotra?
He didn't announce any plans. I expect he could go pretty much anywhere. If I were in his shoes, I'd be looking to land at Amazon.

Next stop for Vic Gundotra?
I take it he gave no indication of where he is going next? Certainly a highly competent leader many organizations might covet ... or will he start something new?
