Isn’t it some kind of holiday today? Happy Independence Day to our friends down south.

So Google+ was released last week and the internet was ablaze with information about it. Ironic, since there isn’t really that much to say about it… Perhaps more interesting (or just as interesting) was the fact that the ICANN decision on TLDs includes allowing any company to register their TLD. Of course, it will cost $180,000 just to apply.  Not to mention some of the search engine issues with corporate TLD’s and relevance to users.

Anyways, this week we have Forrester’s views on Google+, problems with linkwheels, good metrics, and what we can learn about UX from videogames.
