Susanne Ramharter3,133Fridays are for sharing circlesto the new people who have put me in their circles: many thanks! Some of you I have already had contact with, to the rest, I would like to reciprocate with this circle. It is hand-picked, and contains people who are funny, intelligent, knowledgeable, and engaged.You will find information about social media, google+, as well as cognitive science, books, travel and art, some agitation against encroaching on civil liberties (SOPA, ACTA, censorship - mostly from me ;-) inspirational as well as snarky things, and yes, the occasional cat. But everyone here is friendly and has great things to contribute, so feel free to share the circle if you like.Have fun!2012-03-09 15:46:5631329919CC G+
Susanne Ramharter2,244To the many people who have circled me lately, thank you! Some of you are new to Google+ and looking for interesting people and conversations.My view is that being social is fun, enjoying good photographs is fun, snark is lots of fun.But sometimes I feel the need for a special kind of substance, people who consistantly provide intelligent posts and engagement. That is when I go to this circle.Warning: these are not necessarily the "cool kids" with gazillions of readers. But they regularly provide intelligent, thoughtful and often fun discussions.So if that is what you want, engage!Feel free to share, also, if you know of anyone I could/should add to this circle, please comment, otherwise, enjoy.2012-02-24 20:56:23119314CC G+

“When you think about it, wire walking is very close to what religion is. ... To know, before you take your first step on a wire, that you are going to do the last one—this is a kind of faith.” On the 40th anniversary of Philippe Petit’s World Trade Center wire walk, read Calvin Tomkins’s 1999 piece on the artist.

“When you think about it, wire walking is very close to what religion is. ...
