Chill Ideaz Jay Beek Rocksuperstar0Here's the latest update of my Engagers circle. The last version of this circle was close to full, so I started it again from scratch. This circle includes people who have recently engaged with one of my posts in the form of +1s, comments and public reshares.I might have missed some people because of limitations of the Google+ interface. Fortunately, the next release of +Circloscope on June 28 is likely to include new features that make circles like this one much easier to create.I've included 100 guest members in this circle, taken from my Favourites circle, which I haven't shared in a while.Like my previous circle share, this is a Showcase circle! What this means is that everyone is invited to leave a comment on (the original post of) this circle share containing a link to one of your own posts. Ideally, this should be something that you posted recently and that you are particularly pleased with. (Don't post spam though; I will delete it.)2013-11-24 00:22:24405014

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

Richard Green12,571Here's an updated circle of people who have either +1ed, reshared, or commented on one of my posts recently.  This includes indirect public reshares, but only +1s and comments on the original posts.Since the circle is nearly full, I only included new people if they engaged with one of my non-circle-share posts.  Also, I excluded posts with over 100 +1s, for two reasons:(a) hot posts attract low-quality comments, including spam comments, and(b) as far as I can tell, Google won't give you a full list of people who plus-oned your post if there are more than 100 of them; the same goes for reshares.Thanks for reading my posts!2013-05-13 21:33:26483692583

Richard Green10,142Yes: I've made it to 10,000 followers!  To celebrate, here's a once-only share of a circle I'm calling the Surprisingly Successful Mashup Circle.  It contains:1. the most recent share of my Thankers circle (people who thank other people for including them in a circle that happens to contain me as well);2. the most recent share of my Engagers circle (people who +1, reshare and comment on my posts);3. my Plus Ten circle, which was a great idea that didn't work (people who post things with more than 10 plus-ones);4. the people and pages mentioned below.I'd like to thank the following:+Science on Google+: A Public Database for giving me most of my first 1,200 followers;+Full Circle, +JUSTIN MATTHEW, +Cesare Riccardo, +Trever McGhee, +Ludovic Moreeuw and +Euro Maestro for repeatedly sharing me in their high-impact circles; and+Shaker Cherukuri for implanting the idea in my head, inception-style, that having 10,000 followers would somehow be a cool idea.  (I think there should be a verb "inceive", meaning "to put an idea into someone's head, like in the film Inception.")Caution: having lots of followers doesn't mean that people will read your posts.  But it certainly helps!And here's the circle.2013-04-25 00:39:34498823590

The original Point Break is one of the reasons I decided to take on surfing, so I kinda have to watch this remake. I wish it focused more on the sport of Kings and less on this gimmicky inventions. But, hey, if it's not over the top, it's not Hollywood.

These are some serious kites.

A few weeks ago, we gave you a sneak peek of our 600kW energy kite as we moved it out into the world. Now we’re ready to test it, starting this month here in Northern California. 

We’ve already tested the 600kW energy kite’s subsystems over the past few months, and this will be the first time we see how everything works together. While we can’t wait to see our new energy kite fully in action, we’re going to start off slowly by testing things incrementally. We need to get to know our energy kite first, and have it complete individual tasks successfully before giving it more advanced tasks. This means repeatedly performing functions as basic as powering the kite’s motors on and off, or getting the kite to hover with shorter tethers before we use a full-length tether. By testing close to our Alameda headquarters, our team will be able to quickly solve any issues that come up. Our engineers and scientists may even end up rapidly redesigning and rebuilding components as needed to ensure we have the best energy kite possible before we head off to Hawaii for our pilot project.

Check out these photos of our team completing final tests of our subsystems while putting the finishing touches on our 600kW energy kite.___These are some serious kites.

"Google now has a significantly lower cost in standard compute instances"...without any commitments, prepayments, or restrictions. And RightScale's analysis excludes the additional 14%* savings you get from per-minute billing and never having to exactly guess right which machine type or region you'll need.

"14% extra, really?", you might ask.  14% is an estimate, of course, and YMMV -- see http://cloud.google.com/pricing for more, including a TCO calculator where you can check our math and plug in your own assumptions. But it's not a contrived number: consider this simple example: suppose you're running some hadoop jobs that on average take 2 hours.  On GCP you pay for exactly the minutes you use.  AWS will round up to the next hour, so on average you'll overpay for 30 minutes, which is a +25% surcharge on the advertised VM rate.

Rocket-triggered lightning event

Because thunder and lightning are unpredictable, the phenomena are best studied using triggered events. The technique involves launching a small rocket trailing a grounded copper wire into thunderclouds. The copper wire provides a conductive channel and creates a predictable path for lightning, allowing scientists to precisely focus their instruments and perform repeatable experiments close to the discharge channel. Using SwRI internal research funding, Dr. Maher Dayeh led a proof-of-concept experiment to image the acoustic signature of thunder. SwRI conducted experiments at the International Center for Lightning Research and Testing at the University of Florida, Gainesville, taking advantage of the state’s claim to the most lightning strikes per year in the U.S.

To map the acoustic signatures of thunder, Dr. Maher Dayeh and his team set up an array of of fifteen microphones, a meter apart, spiraling outwards from the site of the triggered lightning strikes. Using a few different processing techniques and a focus on higher sound frequencies, Dayeh eventually uncovered a distinct thunder signature.

This is easily the most adorable surfing video ever made. So good that even non-surfers will surely enjoy. It captures all cliches you'll find in surfing videos (driving through the desert for waves, out of focus vegetation in the foreground, playful music) and features Playmobil figurines (which, during my childhood, occupied the place that today belongs to Lego toys in the minds of children). Highly recommended.

Remember those crappy netbook keyboards and displays? What most don't know is that, until recently, the "Wintel" duo did not allow OEMs to build and sell decent sub-$500 "netbooks" so not to hurt sales of higher-margin "full laptops". Disrupting that situation was one of ChromeOS original goals.

One of Project Loon’s earliest Eureka moments was the idea that we could provide continuous Internet connection not by keeping balloons stationary over a given location (which would require lots and lots of energy to work against the wind) but by coordinating a fleet of balloons to work with the wind, such that when one balloon leaves a location another moves into its place to continue providing connectivity. In theory, this means that any individual balloon would provide connection in one place and then, days later, provide connection at another location at the opposite end of the world. In our latest long distance LTE test this is exactly what we achieved!

In theory, this means that any individual balloon would provide connection in one place and then, days later, provide connection at another location at the opposite end of the world. In our latest long distance LTE test this is exactly what we achieved!

Launched from New Zealand, our globe-connecting balloon made the first leg its journey travelling 9000 km over the Pacific Ocean. Approaching our test location in Chile at a speed of 80 km/h, a command was sent for the balloon to rise into a wind pattern that slowed it down to a quarter of its speed, allowing it to drift overhead members of the Loon operations team who were able to connect to the balloon via smartphones on our test-partner mobile network. 

Hanging around for half an hour to complete the connection testing, the balloon was then sent off on the winds over the South Atlantic ocean towards its next test location, over 10,000 km away in Australia! Our balloon completed this second leg of the journey in just 8 days, travelling over 1000 km per day and reaching a top speed of 140 km/h while whizzing over the ocean south of Africa. Once at the east coast of Australia the Loon Mission Control team implemented a series of altitude maneuvers to catch different winds and reverse the balloon path, lining it up to directly overfly our test location. Having travelled over 20,000 km around the world the balloon flew overhead at a ground distance of less than 500 meters away from our target (well within the 40,000 meter radius required for connection) to provide over 2 hours of Internet connection. That level of precision is like hitting a hole-in-one in golf from over 4 km away!

Tests like this give us real insight into how Project Loon can work at scale. With more balloons in the stratosphere and more Telco partners around the world capable of supporting Loon internet traffic, our ability to provide continuous connection in rural and remote areas will only increase. ___

A constant goal in Google's product development is shortening the time to task completion (even at the cost of fewer ad prints). This is one of those cases.

How could you make Chrome omnibox more powerful? One way the chromium team is experimenting with is Answers in Suggest. By enabling the eponymous flag at chrome://flags/#answers-in-suggest, responses to certain types of queries will appear directly in the Omnibox suggestion list.

Try it out with a weather query for instance in Chrome Canary and notice the inline picture weather in the results. You can also play with "1+1", "what is the answer to life the universe and everything", "1ml in oz", etc.
