Kyle Beck0So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+
Hanni Parker5,145British Circle but also a great Starter Circle to give your stream a boost.(Please re-share as you see fit) +see instructions below if reqd!)Or rather the #english #welsh #scottish and #northern #irish circle, with a few adopted and expats to boot.I decided in the end to make a sub 100 circle, to make it easier to add/notify/curate etc, so if you are not here, please do not be offended, comment below and I shall edit the post to give you an honorary mention ;)There are people from all walks of life there, #business people, #journalists , #entrepreneurs , a few #photographers (not too many), a couple of TV people namely +Robert Llewellyn and +Rory Cellan-Jones who actually use G+ to its potential, post lots of interesting things and interact with their followers. There are #funny people, #science people, and "Jack of all trades" people like myself. #christians and #atheist and some #couldnotgiveadamns too. I feel it gives a good mixed bag, as that is what the UK is :)You may also like to check out:Men ...................................................

Make a new circle, call it British, or Hannah's recommended or something, then browse that stream at your leisure, you will soon find people on your wavelength, that you can then drag over to your relevant circles. If someone annoys you, you can simply uncircle them, and carry on.

So the day has finally come, today is my 30th BIRTHDAY! To celebrate, I've made a montage of my favourite images from what was the best decade of my life. You can see me thin, fat, thin again, hairy, smooth and how I am now (which I think is the best). You'll find me in drag, with my family, friends, celebrities, Channel 4 colleagues, two Prime Ministers, at least one porn star and I even ride a 10 foot gyrating penis :) Wow! I hope the next decade will be so eventful! (It's set to my favourite song from the year I turned 20)

After six amazing years as the Technology Correspondent for Channel 4 News, I've decided to leave to found a new start-up with +Alex Halliday and a co-founding team from around the world. It's going to disrupt an industry that has basically been left behind by technology and the social revolution so it's not another social network, photo sharing app, social commerce, daily deals, music or video service, there are lots of these already. What we're building will really change an industry for the better, cause a lot of disintermediation and save consumers and small businesses a lot of money. 

It's very exciting and I can't wait! P.S. It means I'm going to be living in London and New York, so USA watch-out!
