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 14:24:522009213CC G+

Dominic Meagher0The China Circle - Since Google+ seems to have welcomed a whole bunch of new people from China, I thought I'd share my China circle. This is circle of people that seem to have an interest in China. I shared it once before, and this is the updated version. Later I'm going to try to work on a more selective version - I'll try to get it down to less than 100 people. But for now, this is it.If you want to be added or removed from it, please let me know in comments.2012-03-03 03:15:25449004CC G+

Dan Leveille23,227Google+ Users the Community Couldn't Live WithoutA Community-Curated CircleWith suggestions from hundreds of people, these are the Google+ users who the Google+ community "couldn't live without." Their content, personality, and overall presence on Google+ provides irreplaceable value to other members of the community.Two days ago, I asked the question: "Who are 3 Google+ users you couldn't live without?" After hundreds of comments came in, here's the Circle that everyone created!Original post: goo.gl/P4D8HFull details: Every [valid] suggestion was added to this Circle. Suggestions made on reshares of the original post were included unless the post was not share publicly. When people suggested more than three members, I chose the first three who were not already included in the Circle. Self-nominations were not included unless another user recommended that person. Pages were not included unless they represented a single person (for example, celebrities). I may do a Page version soon!#circleshare #circles #publiccircles2012-02-26 01:19:07305565373CC G+

Lisa Bimmerz7,038Per request, I am sharing my Galaxy Nexus circle again...It has grown some, since I shared this circle last week. If you ARE in this circle, please add this updated one to your existing Galaxy Nexus circle, and then please share it publicly. The more the merrier - right?! =o)If you have a Galaxy Nexus or are planning to get one, and would like to be included in this circle, simply add this circle name it Galaxy Nexus (or whatever you want), then add yourself to it, and then share it publicly.Please note; if you are not adding people back from this circle and you are in it, then it kind of defeats the point of having a Galaxy Nexus circle. Since Google has removed incoming streams, we will not see your postings shared with us, unless we have mutually added one another to circles.2012-02-04 02:34:323823206CC G+
Kathryn Crosby0When 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 08:55:134993169CC G+

What's the origin of "full dance card"? My intuition is that it's based on some American practice at formal high-school dances, or something like that?

Chinese xenophobia down under

Australia is in negotiations with China concerning a free trade agreement. Australia desperately needs capital to build infrastructure but there's two major problems. Firstly, Australia needs to get over the fact that the money would come from state-owned companies (and that's happening). Secondly, and more seriously, China wants to ship in workers to get the work done, no doubt motivated by Australia's infamously small and expensive labour base.

There is a strong case for shipping in Chinese workers for projects. In Africa there's ports, roads and rail-lines built in this way. That said, it's hard to see any political reality where it would be possible to have different labour rules for Chinese workers vs. Australian workers. Instead about the best the government can do is offer so-called 457 visas for skilled jobs which... more »

Fecking Australia Post

Just what is it with leaving cards for packages without even trying the front door? I've been reading academic papers all day in an alcove right next to my front door so I have full visibility of the path to the door. The missus just found a postie card, stealth popped in the post box.

Maybe they don't even have it with them and they're just delivering cards?

Stange conversation with an eBay seller

I bought a bunch of 'Arduino' header strips on eBay but I failed to note that the description said 2mm instead of 2.54mm, because I used Arduino as my main search point. 2mm headers turn up which clearly don't fit and aren't much use for anything. Standard PCB hole pitch, proto/veroboards etc are 2.54mm.

So I get in contact with the seller and admit that the error is partially mine but it was not helped by him calling them Arduino headers.

I get belligerent reply. He's personally used 2mm with Arduino in some unspecified way, while also pointing me to his correct 2.54mm listing. 

Give it was just a few bucks it's a cautionary tale. Again if I'd just have bought from someone in China they would have apologised and sent the correct ones. At the same time I need to pay more attention to... more »

I've dumped AVR and moved to the #Teensy 3.1 for my hacker projects. I thought I'd briefly post about why. A combination of me not being a great coder and my projects tending towards the complicated end of the spectrum means that I've run into the severe limitations of the 8-bit MCUs in Arduinos. Mostly RAM, then speed.

That said, I like the Arduino IDE in so far as it's just C. I paste it into the window and hit upload and it just works. There have been various boards out there which have tried to cash in on the Arduino popularity but implementing more modern MCUs. ChipKit was the first I came across. I tried this out but almost nothing in the way of code I wanted to run actually ran on the board.

Then I stumbled across the Teensy 3.1. This is in a long line of Arduino-nano-a-likes. The first ones were AVRs but since 3.0 it's been an ARM Cortex M4 based. The 3.1 is... more »

One interesting idea that's often explored in Sci-Fi literature is the notion that some agency or nation-state will leap ahead in bio technology because they aren't shackled by the same moral constraints and oversight. That day is clearly here, for better or worse.

This is powerful stuff. Former US defence secretary Robert Gates issues a colossal slapdown on Washington, having served under two presidents from both sides of politics. The essay is an except from a book. I think it'd be riveting reading but I'm not really sure I can stomach to hear more about the "single-minded parochial self-interest" of Congress.

Turing finally obtains a pardon. It took a royal pardon since the British government was too spineless to do it back in 2011. The argument, at the time, was that Turing was 'rightly' convicted of homosexuality laws given that was the law at the time. Obviously those laws were fucking stupid, and as meaningful as a posthumous pardon is anyway, it's entirely reasonable to issue a pardon based on the fact that society is just a little bit more enlightened than the 1950s.

I got an iPad Air. It wasn't an obvious choice for an old android head like me. Nevertheless it's one of the finest pieces of technology I've ever seen. Ironic that it comes at a time when android also hit its stride with the Nexus 5. Something that feels in a similar class. Of course I fully expect the usual howls of indignation that I abandoned android in my choice of a tablet. So why did I do it?

A few reasons but the show stopper was software. Apps basically. I'll get onto that later. The hardware too ticks a number of boxes. Firstly, it's faster than anything else on the market with perhaps some otherwise undesirable devices like the Kindle Fire coming close with Snapdragon 800 chips. Then there's the aspect ratio, none of that ridiculously wide/tall nonsense that seems to plague android and windows tablets. Weight too is critical of course.

Woo hoo!!!

Following on from my recent graduation (thanks for all the 'grats!). I've had a couple of  extra bits of good news. I've been accepted into the PhD programme having pitched a rather funky blue sky research proposal that was by no means guaranteed. Additionally, I landed an Australian Postgraduate Award scholarship as well. Which means I go from racking up debt for my studies to being paid instead. This is basically everything I've been working towards and has been all-consuming. I've needed to pull out top marks to make it happen and I did that.

This has set me up for a pretty great Christmas and New Year! I hope things are going well for everyone else too. I'm really quite excited about 2014 and beyond.

"During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die. "

Nelson Mandela, spoken at the conclusion of a speech lasting four hours at the Rivonia Trial. Convicted along with seven other ANC members, he would spend nearly 28 years in prison. At the time of giving this speech, the death penalty was almost assured.

Very sad to hear of Nelson Mandela's passing today, at the age of 95. His influence on this house is substantial given that I'm married to a white South African that grew up in critical period of the nation's renewal. Given the treatment he suffered, Mandela's restraint is always a source of inspiration. His much needed restraint in ushering in the peaceful replacement of white minority rule, cements his place in history as the world's great statesman, to my mind. Resolutely promoting reconciliation delivered the best outcome for his country. In such a way South Africa largely sidestepped the disaster that has befallen many other countries, past and present. 

Rest peacefully Madiba.

This is fucking amazing! A Nigerian cook who was aboard a tug that sank was found by divers three days later. He'd been hanging out in an air pocket. The tug sank in 30 metres of water. So that's survivable although the guy needed a decompression chamber. What I can't figure out is how he survived given the cold. He was only wearing a pair of shorts. Three days... Some people are made of hardy stuff!

Go to Google News and Google Alan Rusbridger. This is the editor of the Guardian who has just appeared before the British home affairs select committee to answer questions relating to the publishing of the stories from the Warren Snowden cache. Rusbridger delivered a magnificent performance, a thorough drubbing of the inept nonsense coming from the British conservatives. No media agency seems to be reporting it despite gems like the right honorable tosspot Keith Vaz asking Rusbridger "Do you love your country?". This is the UK, not the US. You could almost hear the sharp intake of breath from the collective attendees of the session. Did he really just ask that? This is a Labour MP!

Back to the non reporting of this appearance (the video is great viewing), the wider media seem to believe that since this is the Guardian on the stand, as it were, publicising it would be somehow giving a... more »

Someone just asked to borrow my phone. They had to ask me how to do it. It took me minutes to figure out how. The phone icon isn't even on my home screen. Why would it be? You use the contacts app right?

The same process was repeated with SMS. In this case it really is hard work. Google's bundling of SMS into hangouts is a total mess.

Pretty funny though. Erm yes I've worked out how to make a call on my own phone now, here you go.

Agencies. Another facet of modern civilisation that fails to add value to our species in any appreciable way. This plea from an artist direct to Spike Lee is sobering indeed. "Only a designer" indeed. A man with talent and integrity, one could see how that would rankle an ad agency.

Aussie author Gary Disher was just on Radio National's Books and Arts being interviewed about his crime novel Bitter Wash Road. The essential plot line: Detective is demoted to constable and shipped out to a one-copper station in rural South Australia because his city posting was found to be corrupt and this 'washed off' on him somehow, while of course he was completely innocent.

There's a hit and run killing. No really. Of a teenage girl. Yep. The local racist, sexist, incompetent coppers fail to spot that this is a murder, intertwined as it is with nefarious goings on in the town. 

So basically it's exactly the same as every other recent crime drama. Just teleported into an Australian context. The author was claiming that this represents some greater sociological commentary rather than the blatant rip off of the current Scandinavian crime drama vogue. more »

Good 'ol Snowden eh? This time he's rumbled Australia spying on Indonesia. As all your rent-a-comment talking heads on the news channels are saying, it's not like nations don't expect activity like this.

That said, the slides are interesting. The clear implication is that 3G has been bust wide open and Australia has been systematically monitoring the calls of scores of Indonesian government honchos. It's doubtful Indonesia thought this was even possible, otherwise they would have used more secure means.

Of course with Australia being one of the 'five eyes', it's very likely that proprietary goodies in telecoms equipment played a part, thanks to those companies being based in nations where they can be compelled to hand over source, insert backdoors and all that jazz.

I think this concept has legs. Cute demo where the table turns over his ringing phone and brings it over so it can be picked up.

I feel that the human race cannot progress beyond our current state of development until such time as we obtain the technology to create a reliable fucking stapler.

John Carmack's latest Twitter update made me laugh:

"Just had a hypothetical worry about an aggressively lazy buffer allocation behavior."

I think we need some new meme based on the first-world problems meme but narrowed to super-geeky worries.

Ross Nobel: Of all the moons of Saturn which one is more likely to be the home of the Ewoks?
Brian Cox: Titan's atmosphere thicker than that of Earth's. So you'd need to be quite furry. 

Bless QI.

Calm down Australia, hot days happens decades ago, bushfires have no connection to climate change, says the new climate minister Greg Hunt. He looked it up on Wikipedia. You can't make this shit up.

Heh, so Labor elects Bill Shorten as the new leader. One of the treacherous fucks responsible for the omnicluster of the last two leaders. Marvellous.

Doing my tax. They ask what my job title is. I'm a full time student but I I have a couple of research gigs on the side. My actual title for those is research assistant even though it covers research, web dev, bit of teaching etc.

The ATO has a massive drop down menu for possible job titles. No researcher or research assistant. The closest being research nurse, which I quite like but clearly they mean in the medical sense. Given you can't be a researcher have a look at some of the jobs on the list:

Brothel keeper
Rag cutter
Bar useful or busser
Bingo caller
Bread Carter
Bungy Jump Master
Cattery Operator
Circus Performer
Egg grader
Poker machine servicer
Powder monkey
Sandwich Hand
Scientist (?!)
Special effects person
TAB clerk
Variety artist
Wall tiler... more »

This invite bullshit is out of control. My missus just asked me about a supposed interview I have this morning. An entry turned up on my Gcal because of some spam invite from someone I've never heard of, which as she saw because I've shared my calendar with her...

For the love of the flying spaghetti monster, there must be a way to kill this shit? I would be totally up for nuking Google events in entirety.

How is it that people who aren't in your circles can invite you to events? There must be a way of switching this off?
