Dallas McMillan7,412Circle from the land downunder - Australia's top 200 PlussersWho are Australia's most followed people on Google Plus?I've put together this circle of Australia's top 200 profiles (by follower numbers - not engagement - some aren't particularly active) on Google Plus.It's pretty interesting to see the types of profiles which make the cut.Here is my quick overview:By far the most dominant characteristic of the top 200 are photographers - professional and amateur.The other notable individuals are a couple of cricketers in the top 10, a smattering of celebrity chefs, musicians, writers, artists, models and other celebrities.There are also fair numbers of Google employees, IT workers, social media and marketing types as well as a decent number of scientists and mathematicians. The only politician I noticed was Malcolm Turnbull - the Prime Minister and Leader of the opposition are conspicuous by their absence.I got the list from +CircleCount http://www.circlecount.com/au/profileslist/ and I've made a few tweaks - removing a couple of profiles that were inactive or had moved away from Australia. There were a number of others which probably don't belong as they now work in the USA or elsewhere.  #australia   #australianphotographers   #circleshare  I've notified members of the circle - let me know if you don't want to be listed.2013-08-04 14:24:522009213

Vago Damitio8,732Another Tech CircleI am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better!This is another Tech Circle.

Paul Snedden7,059Advance Australia Share - The CircleWOW! What an absolutely overwhelming response I received to my request for your favourite Australians (http://goo.gl/mFLe1). You certainly did deliver.The circle contains a bunch of people who I was already following, but a wealth of freshly undiscovered goodness for me as well. In total, 436 Awesome Aussies waiting to fill your stream with all sorts of goodness. It's got photogs, geeks, writers, a kiwi (ANZACs all the way), expat Aussies living abroad and a couple of long-term Aussie residents who won't admit to being Australian :)I'd like to make special mention to the following people for making this circle possible.The Resharers+Mz Maau  +Giuseppe Basile +Starway Paul +JPG Photo Gallery  +Daryl Hunt +Jim Munro +Brad Chasenore +Annie Yim +Rose T +Rob E +James Fridley +Gerardine Rudolphy +Christopher Prins +Charles Strebor +Peter Lake and +Australia Great The Contributors+2012-12-31 22:36:03436692946

Meilani MacDonald2,935Small Business circle 2 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #2 of the 2. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #entrepreneur #sharedcircles +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you2012-05-28 18:24:39330211318
Rob Gordon22,157Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business OwnersUPDATED SHARED CIRCLE: Part 2 of 2: M through Z (by last name).This is the most recent update to the popular "entrepreneurs" circle that posted a few months ago. As you can see, it has gotten bigger than 500 people so I have had to split it alphabetically into two parts. These two circles includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy. This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own business or venture. There are more than 800 people here, but this has been reviewed extensively since it was last published -lots of fantastic new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of really awesome business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset. This is a really diverse group and includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures and are wildly successful, others are just getting started and haven't made it yet. As can be expected, it is a little tech heavy, but represents most industries and many different types of business. There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in small business issues and always seem welcome to help entrepreneurial efforts. The people in these circles post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you check this out. I do want to add the disclamer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and this is just a tiny fraction of them - the ones I have curated. It seems that about two seconds after I publish this I always remember someone I should have included so just me know if you think you should be here. I republish this periodically and generally add everyone who comments on the post. As with all circles of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either update your existing circle, pick and choose the ones you like or use these as a trial circles - whatever works for you. I'm not even sure Google will let you add all this many names at once so you may have to come back if you want to add all of them. The technology for this is not perfect, but I am trying to do my part to help build a highly interconnected community of entrepreneurs here on Google+. I hope you find the people in this circle interesting.RobReshares welcome and appreciatedIMPORTANT: You don't want to follow people based on where their last name fits in the alphabit do you? Make sure you also take a look at the first part of this list:LINK TO PART I (A-L):http://goo.gl/VLoYH#smallbusiness#business#entrepreneurs #startup#sharedcircles2012-04-18 18:51:01373873560

Joelyn Wright1,371With just one comment... turned into an overnight sensation. Unfortunately, I never showed up to the party but that made the thread more interesting. Others (other than myself) interacted with each other and had fun. There were positive, negative, and sarcastic comments but makes the post fun. As for me being gone... I posted that comment and then went to bed thinking nothing of it. Opening my computer today with over 90+ notifications shocked me and didn't know how to respond. I just want to say thank you for interacting with me and will do my best to interact with the almost 200+ others that commented. By the way... here is the circle that EVERYONE commented on that thread. Again... thank you :)2012-03-28 03:16:1918846134

Rob Gordon18,830Entrepreneurs, Self Employed & Small Business. This is the latest update to my shared circle for "entrepreneurs" which includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy. This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own small business or venture. Lots of time has been spent organizing this since it was first published - many new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of interesting business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset. I do want to add the disclamer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and these are just the ones I have curated. This still probably doesn't even include everyone in my own circles who are entrepreneurs or self employed so let me know if you want to be included. I republish this about once per month. This is a really diverse group of people that includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures, some have startups that are just getting going and some are wildly successful. There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in entrepreneurial and small business issues. The professionals in this circle post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you at least take a look. As with any circle of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either pick and choose the ones you like or use it as a trial circle - whatever method works for you. I also recently learned that you can save circles to your Google contacts so you can save this information there even if you don't want to use this toward your 5000 limit. I hope you find the people in this circle interesting. I certainly do. RobReshares welcome and appreciated#sharedcircles#smallbusiness #entrepreneurs #startup2012-03-13 20:32:12500663852
Sir John Hardy17,427There have been a few circles shared about lately. None, however, is as good as this one. Each person in this circle has been crash tested in a laboratory, simmered in a social incubator and boiled in the crucible of interaction. All have come up with a pH reading of 4 or higher.2012-03-11 14:36:3337538720

Mitchel Rodwell0+Duncan Hayes , +Hanii Leigh this is a big circle, which I call "Political". You'll find people with strong political views here, as well as political news and people who care about politics. I'd advise you add one or the other out of this and my other circle, "Intellectual" because they're both pretty big and I don't want to give you guys too much before you're ready :)2012-01-23 13:48:07366405
Rob Gordon13,043Entrepreneurs & Freelancers. This is my circle for self described Entrepreneurs and Freelancers - which includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy. As I said before, I don't want to pretend that this list is definitive or even close to being complete. There are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and there are many circles of entrepreneurs that have already been shared - these are just the ones I have curated in my own circle. This probably doesn't even include everyone in my own circles who are entrepreneurs or self employed as it is almost impossible to go through everyone's profile. Just let me know if I have inadvertently left you out - I will be posting this in the circles database sometime soon. Feel free to reshare, but as with any shared circle, I do recommend some discretion in adding a circle of this size to your stream. This one might be a little different in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrety entrepreneurs" that are common in other shared circles here- though there are a few. For the most part hese are real small business owners or people or with an entrepreneural mindset, and there are lots of smart people here. #entrepreneur #smallbusiness2012-01-06 22:47:1539942514

Kathryn Crosby19When I returned to G+ for about the third time and tried to actually give it a chance, I found the most frustrating issue was that there are so few active Australians that there are often long dead times while the rest of the world is asleep. Like me, many of the Australians in this circle posted a couple of things in July/August/September, but because no one else seemed to be posting anything they moved away. None the less, having got near enough to 500 Aussies, I figured I should share the circle and add it to the database. Perhaps with a heap of Australian circling going on it will wake things up a bit. I have tried to cull out the wannabe Australians and the completely inactive, but there may have been a few missed out. If I have missed you please feel free to post in the comments and I'll start work on a second Australians circle.2011-11-02 08:55:134993058

Thoughts??

A blockchain company isn't like any company you know.

It's not run organically (it doesn't have faux person-hood).  It doesn't have CEO, COO or effing board of directors.  It doesn't go to a fund or a bank for funding.  It never floats an issue on Wall Street.  Blockchain companies don't need all of that legal cruft and the parasitic overhead that comes with it.

The entire company is simply open source software.  It's built to provide a function and divide up the rewards of providing that function to the participants.  

A company like this runs as software, in the same way bitcoin is run: decentralized.  That means the company doesn't pivot, reorganize, or recapitalize.  It either provides a useful function it gets paid to do, or it doesn't.  If it doesn't work, it is replaced by a new company that doesit bette... more »

A blockchain company doesn't have shares of stock.  Everything that it earns is paid to the people in possession of the companies coin on a pro rata basis (using the blockchain currency of choice).  Ownership is simply a call on this revenue, and all it is paid out in real time.

Earning a blockchain company's coin is done by the company's participants.  You can earn coin doing everything from providing cloud services to doing the same types of stuff you already do online (writing, rating, and curating).  There are ways to measure all of this and connect these activities to revenue.

Investment, to the extent it is needed to launch a venture is crowdsourced, usually by prepurchasing goods and services to be delivered in the future.

A blockchain company doesn't need Silicon Valley, Wall Street or Washington.  

It just needs to be open, decentralized, and useful enough to suck value out of the old economy. ___

A sad day for Australia.

Former prime minister Gough Whitlam has died.

His children Antony, Nicholas and Stephen Whitlam and Catherine Dovey issued a statement on Tuesday morning. 

"Our father, Gough Whitlam, has died this morning at the age of 98," the statement said. "A loving and generous father, he was a source of inspiration to us and our families and for millions of Australians."

There will be a private cremation and a public memorial service.

I'm trying to sort this out for a little community organisation. No money, no servers to install things on, got a custom domain and need to be able to send from and receive on at least one email address. Once upon a time I would have used Google Apps for this, but there doesn't seem to be a free option.

         What is more infectious Google Glass or ebola?
Scientists have treated a man they believe to be the first patient with internet addiction disorder brought on by overuse of Google Glass.
The man had been using the technology for around 18 hours a day – removing it only to sleep and wash – and complained of feeling irritable and argumentative without the device. In the two months since he bought the device, he had also begun experiencing his dreams as if viewed through the device’s small grey window.

Google announced its Sheets spreadsheet application in Google Drive can now fill in missing table values using machine learning. Wait, what? How can it do that?

Currently downloading Eclipse for my clean install of Ubuntu 14.04 . I think I was on Indigo before, so jumping forward three versions.

I'm an IDE guy, have been ever since I got Borland C++ in the very early 90s (maybe late 80s?). I've been using an increasingly old and broken Eclipse install for everything, but now I'm looking at the following:

- Eclipse + pydev for python
- Android Studio for android development
- Chome dev tools for html/javascript/css

I'd really like to dump all that stuff and code in a cloud IDE, particularly for Python on AppEngine, but having seriously tried it recently (the backend of http://jodieoregansinginggarden.com/ was built that way), I don't think it's ready for primetime. Give it another couple of years.

Great analysis by Cenk Uygur of the recent Sam Harris + Bill Maher vs Ben Affleck confrontation over Islam.

Now there's no question about the idiocy of religion to my mind. I see the world made up of atheists, people who are pretending they're not atheists (including many formally religious folk) and dangerously deluded people.

But I really wonder about Sam Harris. Like Christopher Hitchens, he seems to be a real war hawk, and is possibly quite cynically dressing it up in this "all Muslims are bad" rhetoric.

My suspicion is that he represents a subset of US atheists who, beside being atheists are otherwise pure conservatives and resent being left "outside the tent" because of their atheism. So this kind of behavior is calculated to say "Look, I'm a Very Serious Person, see?".

I've been a supporter of the new atheist movement in the past, since they tend to share my goal of church state separation and a reduction in the automatic political influence and perks enjoyed by the more powerful churches.

I've even had arguments with people in the past where I have tended to defend the movement (with good people like +Mila Lewis).

However listening to this discussion I believe I'm going to have to finally change my stance on these guys.  Sam Harris' argument in this piece is such a blatant simplification of the geopolitical forces that lead to the situation in the middle east I'm starting to think (intelligent as he is) that he is acting simply on right wing ideology at least on these issues.  Bill Maher on the other hand is simply being bigoted.  He hasn't had any credibility since his anti-vax rant a while back, and only resorts to science and logic when its on his team.

In fact I'll go as far as to say I think they have become part of the problem, because they have chosen the path of simplistic ideological dichotomy, legitimizing the position of fundamentalists and forcing people to take sides.

All religions have issues with fundamentalism, but they don't become a problem until you introduce poverty, repression, geopolitical instability and a great many people with not much to lose.  Its a symptom of the problem, not the root of it.___Great analysis by Cenk Uygur of the recent Sam Harris + Bill Maher vs Ben Affleck confrontation over Islam.

Crazy story.

"As the parachute opened, he felt the familiar tug upwards. Except instead of a slow descent, he experienced a rapid ascent. The powerful updraft filled his parachute like a sail and rocketed him vertically thousands of feet at a velocity of nearly 100 mph. During his ascent, he could see hail stones forming around him. The lightning was described by him as “blue blades several feet thick” and incredibly close. The thunder was so loud, he could feel it resonating in his chest cavity and remembered this more so than how loud it was. At one point, the lightning lit up his parachute leading him to believe he had died. The rain would pelt him from all directions, and at times was so intense, he had to hold his breath for fear of drowning. But this was only half the agony — the other half being the downdrafts."

"Once the updraft exhausted itself, the associated downdraft would ensue. It was during this phase of his journey that he truly thought he would die. His parachute would collapse around him, much like a wet blanket, and plunge him into a rapid free fall towards earth. The odds of his parachute re-inflating correctly were slim, but not only did it do so once, it did numerous times through a multitude of updraft and downdraft cycles."

"What seemed like an eternity later, Colonel Rankin noticed the violent updraft and downdraft cycles were becoming less intense and the rain was consistently falling from above instead of pelting him from every direction. He was also starting to regain sensation in his frozen limbs, indicating the temperature was starting to warm. A few moments later, he descended from beneath the thunderstorm and found himself above the flat uninhabited expanse of North Carolina. However, the thunderstorm wasn’t quite finished and with one last dying breath, a gust of wind blew Colonel Rankin into a tree and thicket of bushes were his parachute became ensnared. Upon looking at his watch, approximately 40 minutes had passed since he first ejected from his F-8 Crusader."___Crazy story.
