Google+ circles

OK, as far as I could find so far the major, if not the only, advantage Google+ have against Facebook is their circles concept. But I'm still a little confused what would be the right way to use them. The circles are great, I agree, they prop your networking up into multidimensional space.

Amazon Web Services

I know that to have your own personal blog is cool, but to have it on your own web host is double cool. That's true.
