It’s been a while since we took a look at the goings-on at Google+. Over the last week or so this are some of the things that have been posted.
- A Fast Company article about our digital memories. It contains an arresting idea from Socrates for speakers: Words were meant to be spoken rather than written down. Leaving them limp on a document is akin to a father abandoning his defenseless children.
- All kinds of stuff for grammarians—two animated sources for grammarians, a sample word of the day from Oxford Dictionaries, and a celebration of Will Strunk. To balance these serious posts, there’s also a clip of Victor Borge demonstrating visual punctuation.
- A periodic review of George Plimpton’s rules for speakers.
There’s more to see there, and the best thing of all to see would be comments and postings from club members. It’s a new Toastmaster year—why not get into the habit of visiting the community regularly?
