Thoughts on Google+

Thanks to Risus Monkey, I was able to get an invite to use Google+ which is Google's new social networking site currently in beta.  After using it for a few days now, I must say I'm impressed with the service.  It works sort of like a combination of facebook and twitter, and with the circles feature allows you to easily control what you share and with whom.

Thus far, I've found a ton of OSR bloggers on there and have added them to my D&D circle.  Of particular interest is the ability to video chat with multiple people at the same time, which is great for groups looking to do some gaming, but are separated by time zones and long distances.  I'm anxious to use this feature, but I'm going to have to get myself a webcam. 

If you're interested in joining, I can send out invites.  Just leave me a comment with your email addy, or shoot me an email at robertchandler AT gmail DOT com, and I'll be happy to send you one. 

If you're already on Google+ and would like to add me to your circles, my profile can be found at http://gplus.to/rwchandler
