I started a new Google account today. I now have two accounts, one for my aviation adventures and the other for everyday use. There has been a healthy refresh of Google apps since I last had an everyday account; Google+ is especially enjoyable to use now. I’ve started following a few familiar faces there and have dipped my toes in some other communities of interest: politics, various aspects of technology, wet shaving, etc.

The restart of Google is part of my new approach of 2016, using the best tools for the task. It’s a small improvement but one that I think will give me a better peace of mind.
