The Google+ Project – Free Invites

Google has unveiled its new social networking tool Google Plus (Google+) to beat its close rival Facebook. With the Google+ project, the search engine giant is planning to grab the search engine market, which is controlled by Facebook with nearly 700 million users.

Even Though the Google Plus project is in limited field trial, quite a number of users have been able to experience the features of the new Google+ social network. In our search over the Internet, we have noticed mixed reviews from various technology blogs and website editors who tested the Google+ platform. Some of them gave 100 percent marks for Google+, meanwhile some others reported it as a “complicated” platform.

As of today, Google seems to have stopped honouring any new invites to test the Google+ platform but for those that are still keen on testing the platform, all hope is not lost.

Anyone interested in giving this new facebook “killer” a spin should post a comment in the comment section with a GMail email address. Emphasis on Gmail email address. You will receive two mails, one from Google+ and another from Wale Falade (Google+). In the mail from Wale Falade (Google+), click on “View or comment on Wale Falade’s post”, then go with the flow, you will eventually find yourself in the Google+ project page.

PS: Do not know how long Google will continue honouring these invites, so jump on board as quickly as you can!

Calling For Guest Contributions

Running a blog site like the Diary of a Geek is by no means an easy task, especially if you wish to keep churning out quality articles that will positively impact on Nigerians as a whole, locally or in diaspora.

Thanks to the efforts of  Wale Falade and Eyebeekay (Chief Guest Contributor), we have been able to keep the flag flying this far.

In a bid to keep our ratings up, we are inviting write-ups from everyone on any subject but preferably, write-ups with technological inclination. Emphasis would be on topics that are informative or inspirational.

Unfortunately, such contributions would not be compensated financially. However, in conjunction with arthurwales.com, we would be rewarding a total of 12 approved articles from each contributor with ONE YEAR FREE SUBSCRIPTION to a domain name and our Personal Web Hosting Package (50GB Disk Space & 150GB Bandwidth). All 12 articles are expected to be submitted within a year but the reward would be given after the 6th article has been submitted.

Contributors are expected to cite their references, if any, to articles submitted.

Good Morning, Nigeria! Good Morning, World!

My name is Wale Falade, a Nigerian and a confirmed geek. This blog site is intended as a meeting place for interactive discussions of all things under the sun but with a strong bias towards Tech stuffs, Nigerian style.

It’s 3:30pm GMT here in Nigeria but i can’t think of a better theme for this post. It’s a new dawn for blogging in Nigeria so what better title can i give other than ” Good Morning, Nigeria! Good Morning, World!”
