Kyle Salewski2,618This is a circle of awesome people to follow on Google+I have created this circle and consists of some awesome people I have come across on Google+. Majority of these people I have either had a Hangout with or interacted with in some way here on Google+. The others that I haven't interacted with yet - I have been interested in your posts in one way or another. These people interact and post a lot of great things. Some people have a million followers and some only have 100, but all in all they create a great community here on Google+ and I encourage you to add this circle whether you are new here or been here since the beginning. Enjoy!If you were notified about this circle you are in it! :) Thanks for being awesome!Mobile link to shared circle: https://plus.google.com/u/0/105937359144973983227/posts/RrpmUJADAz82012-03-24 03:00:2310050336
Meilani MacDonald1,136So you wanna hangout?I love the hangouts feature and am always looking for more resources of where to find good hangouts, especially ones oriented to business networking. Lo and behold, today I found a shared circle called "great people to hangout with." I added them all to the Hangout circle I already had going, and now I'm going to pass it along . I'm sorry to not post the credit where I found the circle I added today, but I could not find it again. If you want engagement, remember just adding people to your circles in hopes they will add you back isn't enough. Those with the most engagement are themselves engaging, posting and replying in comments. So be engaging :)2012-03-23 21:53:31253554

Chris Hoyt1,112Circle Back to GoogleLooking for people who work at Google? Here's a great circle that's a strong addition to any search you've already performed on Google Plus and that I'd include with any other search for Googlers that you've already conducted.What's interesting to me (and that I'm getting around to pointing out) is that whether you're just looking to expand your network as a member of Google+ or actively #recruiting and #sourcing online, I believe that you'll find infinite value from the proper care and feeding of Google Plus circles. In fact, if done correctly (and maintained) it's a fantastic way to filter your Google Plus stream and check the pulse of any company, organization or interest group.In the event you missed it, I did an article back in August that mentioned my interest in Circles and how I'd be exploring the management of them. (http://www.recruiterguy.net/recruiting-management-circles) So far, I've not been disappointed in the ability to really hone in on an area of interest by filtering my streams based on these circles and simply watching the conversation flow. Of course, being able to quickly see all of the updates from a particular company or interest group is just the start. The more proficient we get with our filtering, the easier it is to get the latest from fun entrepreneurs, CEO's, diversity interest groups, active and passive jobseekers and more - these are just a few of my own circles, mind you. You have the ability to filter by profession, seniority, geography, language, etc.The possibilities are endless!I'd love to hear how you, or others, are using circles to manage the information stream you've found in G+ so far.2012-01-04 20:07:36348211
Blake Ethridge439Meet the Google+ Team & Stay UpdatedHere is my shared circle for the G+ team at Google. Highly recommend as a great way not only to stay up to date but seeing real time best practices and tips you can use for your own efforts. As an overall tip for getting the most out of G+ this one is a must and don't be shy to comment and engage in their posts and when they ask for feedback.#GooglePlusTips #GooglePlus #SharedCircle2011-12-28 20:41:0756000

Louis Gray71,017It's been a little while since I shared with you my Googlers circle.

Why doesn't Sony just release the #theinterview  online, for free or at most $.99?  If the terrorists didn't want the film screened, Sony is just doing exactly what they wanted all along and sending the wrong message. They are painting a target on every film and television organization that says 'if you disagree with our content, just hack us to have it suppressed.'

But once the film goes out, it will be viewed by many more people in a far shorter time. #releaseitnow

I'm a designer, and I can directly trace my design career back to a bootlegged copy of Macromedia Studio 4, and shortly thereafter to Macromedia Studio MX that I received in 2002.  At that point in time, I was more interested in Dreamweaver but I soon realized that I needed an image editor to make cool web graphics and buttons.  And so, I started down the path toward design.

I've posted about my love of Fireworks as a tool that I rely on every day to get my job done. It is better than Photoshop for design for so many reasons and I even teach a class at Google to Eng/PM about using it in their workflow (because it is so easy to learn).

But Adobe screwed up.  They never really understood Fireworks and have continued to sit on their hands (from an improvements perspective) until last year then they announced the death of Fireworks. It seems like they were worried that any other tool that had a bitmap editor in it would cannibalize on sales of Photoshop. So sad, but I continue to use it because I haven't found anything better...until today.

Sketch v3 is out today, and I think that with this version, it might be time to switch. This would also mean dumping Windows in favor of a fully Mac based design workflow (which I have resisted).

https://medium.com/p/4b92d8b25f3

It is so nice to have a company that a)actually cares about and understands their users and their workflow, b) releases updates at a rapid pace, and c) doesn't charge a million dollars for it.

Keep up the good work, guys!___

This used to be the ugliest app that I relied on day to day, and now it has become much more beautiful and functional across the board.

I am a big proponent of using secure strong passwords and LastPass allows me to generate them on the fly.  And it supports two factor authentication and mobile apps.

Hardware matters not if the software running on top of it is bad. Are we really back to the days when you buy something from a computer company and spend the first two days uninstalling the crapware? Except on a phone you can't unless you root.

Just got the M43 -> Nikon F mount adapter from Fotodiox. Here is my camera with a classic Nikon F1.8 lens from 20+ years ago. For the price (about $20 on Amazon), if you've got old lenses lying around (and don't mind manual focus and incomplete EXIF data), this is a pretty inexpensive solution.

Sad day for me. Adobe has announced that the product that I learned design on/with is being deprecated (killed). RIP Fireworks.

Why am I sad?
(and just so we are clear, I am not upset about moving to subscription only model)

Fireworks is a piece of software that Adobe inherited when they bought Macromedia (remember that company?) and they never really did much with it. It has been buggy, sluggish, and feature lacking for a long time.

So why do you use it?
Good question. The answer is that Fireworks is the only product that Adobe makes whose sole purpose is screen design. If the design you were working on would be rendered on a screen, Fireworks worked great.

Unlike Photoshop with it's backwards support for vectors and illustrator with is crappy support for bitmaps, Fireworks combined both seamlessly so that they could live together in harmony on the same canvas.  You didn't need to leave the app to do something and come back, you could pretty much design everything in Fireworks.  It was great.

When combined with the way that it handled flows with pages, and the control you have over exporting for the web (32bit PNG's anyone?) I could really tell a story in Fireworks. No other Adobe app really works the way that Fireworks does in this regard.

So what are you going to do now?
I'm not sure. After I get over it (and just so we are clear, there are many many designers at Google and across the web who love Fireworks like I do) because frankly we all knew that this was coming, I need to learn a new workflow.

Maybe I will start to use Photoshop for design. I don't like the way that you select objects/layers in Photoshop, though, and for the type of work that I do, Photoshop's workflow just doesn't make sense. Not to mention that the source files for Photoshop are massive.

Illustrator is an option too, but the way that it handles bitmaps is not great. And I hate the way that color selection works in Illustrator works.

The dark horse here is actually Adobe inDesign (yes, I know that this is a printing and physical page layout tool) because it combines a bunch of great layout features with the best type system of any of Adobe's apps.

Finally, maybe Adobe isn't the right toolset for me anymore. Perhaps they don't get it. I could design in code, but I think i will slow down if I do. Other options include Sketch (Mac only, unfortunately), or half a dozen different other mac photo editors. There are also a few only only apps that could potentially work out for my personal, non-Google projects.

I'll let you know how it goes. I'll probably end up trying a bunch of different options and hopefully find a new workflow that will work.___

The hangouts updates keep coming! 

Call up to five people from inside Hangouts

We recently made it easier to call someone from a Hangout (http://goo.gl/6vMiS), and starting today, you can have up to five telephone participants (instead of just two)! To give it a try, just click "+ Add Telephone" when inviting someone to your Hangout, then dial their number.

Remote Desktop + Hangouts = AWESOME!

This is a great new update. Glad to have been a part of it. Let me know what you think!

Hangouts Remote Desktop: tech support with a personal touch

For those of you who play tech support for friends and family, there’s now a Hangouts app to make things easier -- powered by the same technology behind Chrome Remote Desktop. 

Hangouts Remote Desktop lets you help others by controlling their computer remotely (with their permission, of course). And because you’re both in a Hangout, you can talk with and see each other during the session.

To get started, just start a Hangout and click View More Apps > Add Apps > Hangouts Remote Desktop. 

Let us know what you think, and please keep the feedback coming!

I have really been enjoying watching the videos in this series...

In honor of the release of Get Lucky, today, the first single from Daft Punk's Random Access memories.

The reason I like videos like this, is that they tell the story of creating something, and more often than not, the great "somethings" take so much to make, but we don't have any idea when we watch, the story behind it.  I love to here the stories, and know what it took to make this stuff.

This is a great deal on a AWESOME piece of software.  For the price, I don't know of a better set of plugins. Silver Efex Pro, the black and white processing plugin is worth that price all by itself, and you get so much more.

Try it out, and see how much better your photos can look.

The Nik Collection by Google: photography first, for professionals and more

Here on the Google+ Photos team, we're busy building tools for all kinds of photographers. Today, and for all the professionals out there, we're bundling the complete set of Nik plug-ins as the Nik Collection by Google. We're especially excited about three things:

1) It's more affordable. The entire set of plug-ins for Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture only costs $149 (versus the previous $499).

2) It's really powerful. The Nik Collection by Google gives you tools for everything from noise reduction and HDR imaging to creative effects and image sharpening (and lots more).

3) It's free to try. You can visit niksoftware.com for a 15-day free trial of the Collection.

If you've already purchased one or more Nik plug-ins in the past, then don't worry, we've got you covered. In fact: we're going to upgrade you to the entire Nik Collection by Google for free. Just keep an eye out for emailed instructions in the next few days.

Once you've got a Nik Collection shot that you're excited about, feel free to share it with the Google+ community. Simply tag your public pictures with  #nikcollection , and we'll reshare some favorites from the +Google+ page. We can't wait to see what you'll create!

This is a huge update. I am really excited about this, not only because I have been working on it for a long time, but because of the way that I know you, the community will use this.  People make great make memories all the time in Hangouts, and now you have an easy way to share them.

Introducing the Hangouts Capture app: snap & save moments as they happen

Google+ Hangouts bring people together, and when they do, all sorts of awesome can unfold. Maybe it's reading a bedtime story to your grandkids across the country. Maybe it's taking a cooking class from your kitchen. Or maybe it's answering questions from your constituents. We hear lots of great stories (http://goo.gl/ENWXo).

The challenge, oftentimes, is capturing your favorite moments as they happen, so today we're introducing the new Hangouts Capture app. With it you can take pictures of your Hangouts-in-progress, including a number of features not available in the usual screenshot workarounds:

- Once you’ve opened the Hangouts Capture app, you can snap photos of your Hangout view with a single click
- All photos are saved to a shared album, visible only to other Hangout invitees
- You can view these photos while inside the Hangout, when browsing your photo albums, or by visiting the original Hangout post
- And, importantly, you’ll always know when the app is in use: when you join a Hangout, when someone opens the app, and whenever a picture is taken

The Hangouts Capture app will soon be available worldwide, so look for it the next time you join a Hangout. Together with Effects, YouTube and other apps, we hope you’ll find Hangouts an even better way to make memories together.

Happy to have been a part of this design.  This is a great improvement.

Making it easier to place phone calls from inside Hangouts

Sometimes you want to invite someone to join your Hangout -- but maybe they're not at their computer, or maybe they don't have an internet connection. Either way, you can call their phones from your Hangout (http://goo.gl/khFot). And today we're making this calling experience a little bit better. For example:

- There's now a proper keypad, so you can navigate phone menus as necessary, and end the call with a single click
- If you're the person who placed the call, you'll see information like call duration, and cost per minute

Calls to the US and Canada are free, and international rates are super low (http://goo.gl/FKBYp). These updates are being gradually rolled out today, so try calling someone from your next Hangout (by clicking “+telephone” from the invite screen), and let us know what you think!

This is a really great update for Hangouts! Please share if you know people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Improving accessibility in Hangouts

Accessibility is something we care a lot about on the Hangouts team. The Hangout Captions app, for example, enables live transcription services for the deaf and hard of hearing (http://goo.gl/4RujF). And "Take the Floor" makes it easier for sign language speakers to do a Hangout together (http://goo.gl/chyKS). Today we're rolling out two accessibility improvements in Hangouts - a Sign Language Interpreter app, and a fuller set of keyboard shortcuts. 

1) Using the Sign Language Interpreter app, deaf or hard of hearing users who prefer sign language can invite interpreters to speak and sign for them during a Hangout. They'll always see their interpreter at the top right of the window, and they'll become the focus of the Hangout whenever their interpreter speaks for them. You can install the app using this link: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_?gid=532733437531.

2) Keyboard shortcuts are also available in Hangouts -- great for people who can't or don't want to use a mouse during the video chat. For example: muting your microphone is now as simple as Ctrl+D (PC) or Command+D (Mac), and you can start chatting with Ctrl+B (PC) or Command+B (Mac). To view the full list of keyboard shortcuts just type '?' while in a Hangout, or visit this page: support.google.com/plus/bin/answer.py?answer=2752487.


Both features are rolling out gradually, so let us know what you think once you've taken them for a spin!

#myfirstwheels  a mid 1980s Fisher Price Cozy Coupe. When my brothers and I were done with it, it was pretty much destroyed but we sure had a lot of fun.

I think our favorite game was one person inside, one person on top, and the other person on the back, probably pushing.

Happy to have been a part of this launch. Let us know what you think about it!

More Hangouts love for different bandwidth environments

Today we're excited to launch two new features that improve the Hangouts experience in areas with low and/or unreliable connectivity:

1) Bandwidth slider. At the top right of every hangout is a new slider that lets you adjust your bandwidth preferences in real-time. This makes it easier to keep hangouts going, even in areas with poor connectivity.

2) Audio-only mode. Choose this mode to send and receive audio only, and thus, significantly reduce your bandwidth requirements. Other participants will only see your profile picture, but they'll hear you loud and clear.

Both of these features are coming your way today but they're rolling out separately so you may see one before you see the other. Very soon both features will be available to everyone, so give 'em a try and let us know what you think! Thanks for your patience.

This is yet another article and video that explains a lot of what it means to be a designer at Google.  I am humbled to be a part of this transformation and forward motion.

In just over a year and a half, Google's almost completely turned around its design process, and started creating beautiful apps. Here's the inside story on the new Google way.

My wife, +Erica Johnson, is a good sport. She doesn't understand why I like +Ingress so much, but she let me go out last night (with her and the baby) while I hacked several portals, destroyed 2 Enlightened Portals, and then connect them all so that I could get to level 3. Thanks, dear!

I have been playing far too much +Ingress on my....CAMERA today.

Yup, the Samsung Galaxy Camera (when tethered to my Nexus) plays the game much better than my Galaxy Nexus. I guess 4 cores really does make a difference.

Viva la resistance!

Anyone get one?

Tried to buy a Samsung Galaxy Camera today.  Only available at AT&T stores. EVERY SINGLE STORE in the SF Bay Area is out of stock (how much stock they actually had in the first place is unclear) and I cannot buy it from AT&T online because they require me to get a data plan, which I am not going to do at this time (you don't need a data plan to buy it, there is no subsidy).

I will never understand why retailers make it hard to buy things. I want this thing, let me buy it.

This is a great update!

Google+ Hangouts: nicer to look at, easier to use

Today we're excited to launch some visual and functional updates to Google+ Hangouts on the desktop, including:

1. A sidebar you can show or hide. The most important part of a hangout is the people in the room, so we've consolidated important items (like invites, chat, and apps) into a sidebar that's there when you need it, and tucked away when you don't.

2. Clean, colorful notifications. Alerts now appear in red, actions in blue, and announcements in grey, making it easier to read and respond to notifications while you're inside the hangout.

3. Apps that are easier to find and manage. The sidebar contains your frequently-used apps, as well as other ones active in the hangout. And you can also remove apps from the sidebar at any time.

Enjoy hanging out with today's update, and let us know what you think in the comments! (And don’t worry if you don't see the changes yet -- we're rolling them out in the next day or so.)

This is really amazing!

A first-person taste of flying a drone

I got to try flying team-blacksheep.com's radio-controlled drone with first person video from a heads-up display when I was in Athens for the WPP Stream unconference, and it is truly astonishing what you can experience with one of these things.  Here's their video compilation of footage shot over San Francisco.  You will see things from a totally new perspective.

For example, they fly right by a hawks nest that I've often watched high in a tree behind my daughter's house in Bernal Hill. You see the hawk launch itself out of the nest.  Unbelievable!  But that's just a personal note.  They fly right over traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge, then later in the same video, they fly underneath the span, along the length of it.  

Astonishing stuff.  And that you can do it with a $2000 kit is even more amazing.___This is really amazing!
