Tom Rolfson2,700My first general recommendation of people to circle. If this circle doesn't fill your stream with good stuff... nothing will!In this circle you'll find a great all-around group of musicians, photographers, TV/movie stars, Googlers, journalists, web development specialists, healthcare professionals and lots of us other "everyday people". I recommend adding the circle, follow their posts and sort as you will. I know I've missed some of the thousands of great people I follow for inclusion and will update the list periodically. If you'd like to be on my recommended user list I look for these things: Public postings, profile info, respectful interaction with others. If this fits you, please drop me a note public or private. *If I'm following you and have forgotten you here, please forgive me. I have many people in unique circles and may have missed searching a couple.Tom Rolfson shared a circle with you.2011-10-12 23:10:37334502127CC G+

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BarCampMilwaukee 8
Milwaukee, WI
 
For the eighth consecutive year, BarCampMilwaukee is returning to Bucketworks the first weekend in October.  Bucketworks will host the event at its current Grand Avenue location.  Doors open at 9:00 AM, Saturday October 5th.
 
A BarCamp is a wholly unique event that provides a free, open-environment forum where the participants are in charge of what happens. It is an interactive conversation where professionals and curious alike come to learn, teach, and imagine. This revolutionary “unconference” allows participants to float from one session to another, and encourages the development of interesting ideas and spontaneous discussion. Since the first BarCamp in the US eight years ago, hundreds of BarCamps have been organized throughout the world.

Could this be an opportunity for #GooglePlus to capitalize? Younger crowds - like teens - enjoy being able to make social networks their own, with an environment that lets them explore on their own terms.

I would say that G+ - compared to Facebook - is more ripe with innovation and idea-sharing which truly allows its users to break away from the social minutia that keeps people from achieving strides in personal growth.

Sometimes, having smaller circles to interact with others allows us to focus our thoughts and ideas, as well as provide them better context for the benefit of others who would best appreciate them.

It might be kind of a big leap from Snapchat, Vine and Instagram, but could G+ lure in younger users who think Facebook is "trying too hard"? Do you think the writing might be appearing on the wall for Zuck's platform? Share your thoughts.

I read an article on Lifehacker not too long ago - one I'm sure you may have read - about using Dropbox to host a website. Have any of you guys tried that and, if so, how did it turn out?
I ask because I was thinking of doing something similar for a few low-traffic personal sites and wanted to see if there were any kind of restrictions on doing such a thing, as opposed to paying for Rackspace...

Seriously... geeked... out. Seeing an open-source variation of the media center GUI such as this enter the arena as the integrated television starts to reach critical mass. I know there's also Boxee, but they're rumored to be dedicating its production solely to the set-top boxes after the upcoming release.
Imagine being able to customize the interface and add unique features, among other things...

Great Article on the History of Movie Industry Lobbying

• 1920’s – the record business complained about radio. The argument wasbecause radio is free, you can’t compete with free. No one was ever going to buy music again.

• 1940’s – movie studios had to divest their distribution channel – they owned over 50% of the movie theaters in the U.S. “It’s all over,” complained the studios. In fact, the number of screens went from 17,000 in 1948 to 38,000 today.

• 1950’s – broadcast television was free; the threat was cable television. Studios argued that their free TV content couldn’t compete with paid.

• 1970’s – Video Cassette Recorders (VCR’s) were going to be the end of the movie business. The movie businesses and its lobbying arm MPAA fought itwith “end of the world” hyperbole. The reality? After the VCR was introduced,studio revenues took off like a rocket. W... more »

After the VCR was introduced, studio revenues took off like a rocket. With a new channel of distribution, home movie rentals surpassed movie theater tickets.

• 1998 – the MPAA got congress to pass the Digital Millennium Copyright Act(DMCA), making it illegal for you to make a digital copy of a DVD that you actually purchased.

• 2000 – Digital Video Recorders (DVR) like TiVo allowing consumer to skip commercials was going to be the end of the TV business. DVR’s reignite interest in TV.

• 2006 - broadcasters sued Cablevision (and lost) to prevent the launch of a cloud-based DVR to its customers.

Today it’s the Internet that’s going to put the studios out of business. Sound familiar?

Okay, I hope this isn't a dumb question... When you see a circle share post and it says "[Name] shared a circle with you", does that mean you're part of the circle being shared or that it's merely being shared?

We've all been there- including myself. There are times when I flat out freeze in Hangouts (or my browser does :P). I do my best to get over what insecurities I'm dealing with that day and stay in the conversation, though, and I've had a lot of fun. If you're going to make the most of your G+ experience, take the leap and get in some Hangouts. It will prove to be a game-changer in your social media life.

*Hangout Lurking - Just Say NO*

Have you tried a hangout yet? They are a fabulous way to take this social media G+ experience to the next level and create some real life friendships with amazing people from all over the world. Check out some of the things I've seen in hangouts! --> https://plus.google.com/107982618909749811163/posts/9UnybDGq6NH

The ONLY thing that most people in the hangout community will ask is - Please communicate in some way

There is a text based chat, voice chat and a web cam option. If you've never video chatted before jumping right into all 3 can be a bit much with strangers. Especially if you are shy. We understand. We were all there at some point too.

But typing hi in the chat is a great place to start. Even typing or speaking a simple.. "Hi, new to hangouts a bit nervous about the camera/voice part... hope thats ok"

I 1000% bet the hangout will be warm and welcoming and understanding... Promise.

Simply joining, saying nothing, being black screened and watching other people who ARE taking the risk to be open and sharing - is strange. The people in the hangout are not a TV show to be watched, but real people - sharing life and themselves. Participate in SOME level or you are being as rude as ignoring someone who is directly speaking to you in "real life". I hope everyone can see the difference here.... right? You can do it! Try a hangout when you see one... I promise you will be glad you did.

Have you joined a hangout? Are you too nervous? Does the idea of camera chat terrify you? Were you a shy person who has since found great friends? Tell us!___We've all been there- including myself. There are times when I flat out freeze in Hangouts (or my browser does :P). I do my best to get over what insecurities I'm dealing with that day and stay in the conversation, though, and I've had a lot of fun.

This really ups the ante for other browsers, doesn't it?

Google Chrome Remote Desktop Beta

Do you use Google Chrome? Have you ever wanted to remotely help someone that's having a computer problem? This link is something you should totally get. Thanks +Chee Chew for bringing it up! (look in the expanded section for the link)

Jumped into a +Chee Chew hangout, where the topic went to a little bit of troubleshooting why a specific camera didn't work. I went to fire up my GotoAssist session, when Chee mentioned this App for Google Chrome that allows you to do some remote settings.

Chrome Remote Desktop Beta Link
http://bit.ly/y478BD

Basically, you click on an authorize access button and it gives you a code.. The other person fires up their Chrome browser and enters their code. Bam! You can setup remote access!

Cool part - the code is a one time use, so people cant just jump into the computers willy nilly. Not only am I going straight to GotoAssist and stopping the service, i'm excited for this to get a wider implementation. Imagine holding a Photoshop class on a Hangout, then being able to look at the students computer.. point out something.. That be cool!___This really ups the ante for other browsers, doesn't it?
