Hello. My Name Is...

Introduce yourself, and tell us one of three things about you (or all):

1. Your most twisted hobby.
2. The strangest night of your life.
3. Five people (living or dead) you'd love to have a long dinner with.

This is in honor of our queen +Christine DeGraff who always gets people 'a talkin'! (reminds me of, well, me a while back. See her post at: https://plus.google.com/117778937939543425499/posts/FdPG9x6e8GR)

Did anyone else ever master Skeeball? (I called it Skeetball). I don't know when my habit started, but it's always been there for me. When I could still see, I nailed this game. So many tickets, so many tchotchke prizes. ha! Memories!

'Canvas Fingerprinting' means wiping your cookies and blocking ads is no longer enough.

[It] works by instructing the visitor’s Web browser to draw a hidden image. Because each computer draws the image slightly differently, the images can be used to assign each user’s device a number that uniquely identifies it.

But fingerprints are unusually hard to block: They can’t be prevented by using standard Web browser privacy settings or using anti-tracking tools such as AdBlock Plus.

The researchers found canvas fingerprinting computer code, primarily written by a company called AddThis, on 5 percent of the top 100,000 websites.

3 TED Talks That Uncover the Secrets of Storytelling

After viewing over 25 TED talks listed as having something to do with the topic of “storytelling,” I began to see a through-line. There was a theme that appeared around the ideas of wonder, mystery, possibility, connection, and engagement.

Read on to see how  +Julie Neumark narrows it down to three talks by three different individuals who seem to be well aware of the recipe to the #SecretSauce.

Tentacle Wine Bottle Stopper

The Tentacle Wine Bottle Stopper is a creepy handmade bottle stopper with a traditional stainless steel and rubber tip to seal the bottle and on top is a monstrous sucker-covered tentacle seemingly reaching out from the bottle's murky Merlot depths.

*On ‪#‎JayToday‬ Will Google Ruin Its Social Network By Allowing Fake Names? http://bit.ly/1rHojzU*

#GooglePlus has announced that it will allow aliases and pseudonyms, removing the requirement that users sign up for the service with their real names.

This is a dangerous game for #Google as it has the potential of making the service into a Myspace-esque trap of fake identities and inauthentic personalities. Does this switch mark the beginning of the end for Google Plus?

Today's +Sprout Social shout out goes to +martin shervington (http://twitter.com/martinsherv), who runs a company called Plus Your Business (http://www.plusyourbusiness.com/). Martin is a Google Plus expert (and a great guy!) who has helped Jay and many other businesses boost their strategies on G+.
