Vago Damitio8,732Creative Circle #5 of 11 or was it #4 Crap.Creative Circle 1 of 11I 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! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-12 23:35:21143000CC G+

Harshit Gupta0Hey all, try this long ago +Robert Scoble shared circle of techies....it's what can get you started here on g+2012-07-11 14:48:57243112CC G+
Kyle Beck0So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+

Robert Scoble1,146,151Here are 500 of my favorite Tech Journalists, bloggers, and pundits. I'm sharing this since I am seeing lots of new people coming over and I'm sure they are looking for some great people to circle here. Unfortunately I can't share everyone that I have in this circle (I have 575 in this circle on my screen, but Google+ only lets me share 500 with you). Lots of interesting tech bloggers and journalists here. Hope you enjoy. This is the circle that starts my morning every day.Speaking of Tech News, I'm off to +VMware. They are announcing new Cloud Foundry stuff this morning. So, you'll probably see some tech news from the folks in this circle.2012-04-11 16:01:035005737106CC G+

Snowfall in the Garden of Good and Evil?

Google's slow descent into "be evil to the competition whenever possible" continues. By forcing all searches into https, it has broken the passage of search terms to websites. This removes data useful in site management (what are my users looking for?) and -- significantly -- breaks competitive behavioral ad targeting systems that infer interests from search terms. And by changing the way Gmail processes embedded images, it has broken email marketing metrics. Then there's the abandonment of FOAF in favor of Google+ profiles on search results. I'm still an enthusiastic user of Google products, but this picture is looking more and more like the New Boss is same as the Old Boss.

It's been awhile since I did any #Drupal development -- the last site I launched was in March of last year. Today I downloaded D8-alpha7 and took a look. Nice!

The core now includes not just a rich text editor (CKEditor) but in-line "quick" editing, even on summary views. And the Views module is now in core, too. The default theme is mobile-friendly HTML5.  

Under the hood: a configuration management system for migrating not just a complete image from dev to prod, but individual component configurations as well. If you've ever managed a large site, you know how huge this is.

A month or so ago, I upgraded from an aging Macbook running Linux to a shiny new Macbook Air. Since #ubuntu  is not yet stable on this platform I've had to struggle with a boatload of Mac OSX annoyances, including its bumbled support for working with multiple monitors. This Ars review says that's fixed, so I'm downloading now. Fingers crossed.

Every year, we raise money to buy Christmas gifts for children of needy families. Last year we used Google Checkout, which is no longer supported, replaced by Google Wallet. When I went to Google Wallet and tried searching for "nonprofit" I got this. Guess I should be looking to Paypal for a solution.

One of the Big Lies of the business world is "for the best consumer experience." We need a universal translator that converts it into "bark bark bark bark bark." I thought I'd lean back and watch Comcast Xfinity video by plugging my Android 4.2 tablet into my flat-screen TV, but NO VIDEO FOR YOU. So, maybe Amazon, then? Jeff Bezos,  new owner of the Washington Post, says his plan for a "new golden era" is "put the customer first." Well, this customer went looking for an Android app for Amazon Video. Result? NO VIDEO FOR YOU. Ok, what about Netflix? Success. Finally. One out of three.

Visiting Wimm's headquarters (makers of fine geeky watches and wearable computing platform)

Wimm makes a new wearable computing platform.

Why would ANYONE in Silicon Valley want to try to build a new watch when the business challenges are so deep? I get an answer. They see a paradigm shift coming for wearable computing.

Its first product is a watch, which they are selling to developers so they can build micro apps for its small screen. I have one and it's quite compelling and here I sit down with some of its executives to get a closer look. Learn more at http://www.wimm.com/

Remember the media hysteria over the lawsuit accusing Paula Deen of racism? It's ended in the case being dismissed by the judge -- but he's retaining jurisdiction and seems to be considering disciplinary action against the plaintiff's attorney. This was not journalism's finest hour. Coverage was typified by a shrill and snarky tone,  a rush to condemn, a lack of interest in any real evidence, and a disturbing prejudice against the South in general.

Wish I'd known these things existed before I sunk $3,000 in a Saab that still doesn't have working a/c or heat! Knowledge is power. My Isuzu Trooper's "check engine" light was on. Rather than taking it to a shop, I bought a $14 Bluetooth module that plugs into the car's computer network and downloaded a free  #android  app. As I suspected and hoped, the "problem" was quickly diagnosed as "P0440 - Evaporative Emission System," which means I didn't close the fuel filler cap properly, and not something serious. Aren't standards great? This kept me from going to a repair shop that has a habit of finding, shall we say, revenue opportunities. The tablet is my $129 +Hisense USA Sero 7 Pro.

Is there an email client for #ubuntu   #linux  that works like the #android  mail client and syncs Outlook Web Access calendar, mail and contacts using webdav? I really like the way Android 4.2 "just works" with our antique steam-powered Microsoft corporate stuff. I don't have any trouble getting mail using IMAP and Thunderbird, but proper calendar support has eluded me for years.

It's nice to discover something in my hardware collection that isn't obsolete. My iGo Stowaway Bluetooth folding keyboard, bought many years ago for a Nokia tablet in the pre-iPad era, works nicely with my new Hisense Android 4.2 tablet. Hurray for standards! #android   #hisense   #igo

Are you using Google's data compression proxy? This makes mobile Chrome behave pretty much like Amazon's Silk browser. It also means every non-encrypted request goes through Google, and I'm not clear about what that implies in terms of privacy.

"Designing and building any high-usability application involves substantial work, and tablet apps entail a few additional issues, including the need to modify the user interface for different tablet models. This, combined with the popularity and ease of using websites on tablets, begs the question of why companies would have a tablet app in the first place. In fact, we advise most companies to stick to their website and invest the resources in improving web usability, which still suffers badly in most companies."

Members of the liber-kook Cult of Selfishness will not understand this, but it's important. Millions of lives saved.

If "share this" buttons were linked to a mandatory Snopes.com search, the world would be a better place.

Why do people keep whining about "original sin" of "giving away" news? Newspapers, in the United States at least, never really made a profit on selling news to consumers, and no amount of "make them pay" arrogance would have "saved" a thing. The erosion of paid circulation of printed newspapers pales in comparison to the devastation of advertising revenues (and has been caused in part by the loss of advertising-as-content).

The Internet has changed the underlying economics and mechanics of marketing consumer products and services. Printed newspapers used to play a key role in that process (we called it "advertising.") Today that role is radically reduced by an explosion of options. The rise of competitive options wasn't caused by newspaper executives making poor choices or ignoring change. The weather changed. Get over it.

Sane review. After a couple of years of overshooting (and overpricing), Google seems to have learned the "disruptive innovation" model.

No surprises here, but it's interesting to watch popular culture become aware of Microsoft's death spiral. It's not just the Surface RT debacle, it's also the $32 billion drop in stock valuation in one day.

Here's a tip to make your web browsing faster: Edit your hosts file and map b.scorecardresearch.com to Scorecard Research isn't just a data spy, it's an astoundingly inept data spy, incapable of reliably delivering the Javascript it injects into ad networks. Next time your Chrome browser is hanging while visiting a website, check the lower left corner and lay the blame where it belongs.

This is me trying to shoot a picture with an iPhone in my right hand while continuing a phone conversation on an Android in my left. Every time I try a one-handed shot with the iPhone I do the same thing: accidentally hit the toggle between front and rear-facing cameras.

Google Music, still broken in Chrome. Does Google care? Do I need to use Firefox instead?  #ubuntu   #google   #googlemusic

Wish I could just migrate my Google Music collection to Amazon, whose player actually works, whose apps are available on all my platforms. I have some good music essentially beached on Google's desert island.

I'd love to use Google's voice-powered search on my Acer 1410 laptop, but one of the recent Ubuntu updates has broken my microphone connection. Again.  Audacity has no problem getting microphone data, but PulseAudio is a big fail.

Is there a Chrome extension that disables this silly multicolumn display?

No, Google, it's not "simpler."

This is happening at "old media" companies across the country: creation of autonomous digital marketing units that sell SEO, SEM, business websites and network-delivered behavioral ad targeting, independently of the "old media" sales force and often in competition with it. I think there are something like 250 digital products in the portfolio. Life in newsrooms has become a lot more complicated in the last decade with reporters shooting video and filing from the field with smartphones and continuous updating and social media and databases and so on, but that's nothing compared with the complexity of life on the sales side. This is happening at companies that are serious about adapting to the new digital realities.

The "paywall" debate suffers from 20th-century mass-media assumptions.

New revenue sources are creating a brighter, more complex outlook for the newspaper industry. I know our revenue folks are highly focused on local digital marketing services, which previously weren't even being counted.

This gives me an idea. We could fix the deficit overnight by passing a crackpot tax.
