Max Huijgen46,779The 100 most relevant people on G+ you really should check out. It´s impossible to select the people which contributes most to my experience on G+ so I´ll let Google do the dirty work.These 98 people (and 2 pages I helped founding) are the most relevant ones according to Google´s circle sort so they deserve a spot in the Friday sun.  If you´re not in it, be assured I really enjoy your posts and/or comments. I meet a lot of great people here, but this self imposed limit to 100 is just to make it easier for others to circle the whole bunch and check them out.2013-06-21 19:32:111001221459CC G+

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.)2013-06-18 14:06:1838425937CC G+

Gideon Rosenblatt28,713Gideon Rosenblatt's Top 100These are the folks Google tells me are my most relevant people (slightly modified to remove people who are relevant, but not active here on Google+).Looking through this list, I can tell you that these are great people full of interesting ideas and engagement. I'm not in the circle here, so I can objectively say that this group is a worthy addition to your circles. Enjoy this group of people - I know I do. They enrich my experience here. Without them, I probably wouldn't still be here today. P.S. - If you got a notification, that means you're in the circle. 2013-06-11 20:53:39100662467CC G+

These are all folks who always have something interesting to say and actively post and engage.It is this kind of thing that makes Google+ so great compared to other social networks.... It's an expansive world where you're constantly meeting new and interesting people, interacting with them on a very real level, and actually getting to know new folks in a way that you just can't in 140 character snippets :) 2013-05-17 20:18:402919016CC G+

Lee Smallwood22,777Outstanding Contribution to G+ CircleActions [sometimes] speak louder than words - spoken or otherwise...Which is why I want to share this circle in particular. It contains people that go beyond the norm and their contributions to G+ are second to none.There maybe some familiar faces contained within it and some not so well known... However, together they create an entertaining and thought provoking content stream that I can't do without on a daily basis.Seriously consider adding them to your circles :) #circleshare  2013-05-10 10:51:3613625219CC G+

Johnny Johnsen5,985#F1Johnny  Circle :I have had some Formula 1 circles this season.Some from them from the one and only +Jens Graikowski  , some from others and some i have made myself.The things that matters for me is that the person in this circle is above average interested in Formula 1. If you do not get many (sometimes to much) post about Formula 1, you are probably in my "Motorsport " circle or or another one :)I want the person in this circle to feel that he or she belong there.If you want to be there but isn`t. Notify me !If you are in there and think this is to much Johnny !!!!! Notify me !  :-)Now Googla is on fire with "Communities" and this is great news for usFormula 1 fans. Now we can move in to the #F1 #Communities and just chat about Formula 1 all winter :-)Here are the links to the one i`m in :  http://bit.ly/VEMMJhhttp://bit.ly/TRWt1PI will also post and share my Formula 1 circle and my Motorsport circle.I hope that Formula 1 2013 season will be THE season for F1 followers on Google Plus. I think communities and the fact that it is so many more members here at the start of the season will make this to a great team.Google Plus will crush FB and be a good addition to Twitter in 2013 season :-)98,5 days left to the start ;)PS: If there is a lot of spelling mistakes, the reason is that Google Translate is not at work today :-)Have a great wintertime, and a fantastic Christmas.Johnny2012-12-08 17:42:33302805CC G+

Jens „Google Plus Yoda“ Graikowski10,635Last share of the F1 circle (Part one) ...As I have completely changed my circle system and am working exclusively with my "Interaction Ladder" (http://bit.ly/VfSrjs) for incoming and my "Targeted Circles" (http://bit.ly/XSXBoR) for outgoing traffic I have decided to delete even my last themed circle, the #FormulaOne  circle.I believe that creating a #Formula1  community via a circle is impractical and cumbersome. A #GooglePlusPage  is better suited for this endeavour, so if you want to be part of a large #F1 community I recommend you try some of the pages around, like +F1 Circle (the page that belongs to this circle) or +Formula 1 Fans. I will share this circle in two parts (One of the reason that it is cumbersome. You can't share circles larger than 500) so it doesn't get lost for those who are still interested in it. I will delete it from my circles afterwards.This is part one with F1 aficionados from A to L. The M to Z part will follow in a second.Don't get me wrong! I'll keep on posting about the F1 and I'll do so publicly. You can still all read my Formula 1 posts. If you'd like to be notified of them I'll gladly add you to my Formula 1 targeted circle. Just +1 the first comment underneath this post!I hope we'll all enjoy the last race of the season 2012 and am looking forward to see you all again in 2013.And now go and share this circle all over the place, will ya!Greez,+Jens Graikowski ***************************************************************** #jgformula12012-11-22 23:02:21367418CC G+

Jens „Google Plus Yoda“ Graikowski9,124Amazing Interactors ...I haven't shared a circle for ages. That is mainly, because I got rid of all of my interest circles apart from the Formula One circle. I have one circle though that is really worth sharing. My Regular Interactors circle. In there are those few guys who interact with my posts all the time. They are witty, engaging, intelligent, honest folk who are an enrichment to any circle. Of course, I can't promise that they'll interact with you as much as they do with me (that will depend mainly on what you post), but chances are good.Add those few guys to your circles for a better #GooglePlus  experience and share the post so everybody can benefit from those top engagers!Btw, if you want to know, how I put together my shared circles, read this: http://bit.ly/NyIETUGreez,+Jens Graikowski.******************************************************************* #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #pleasesharethispost   #sharethis  +Shared Circles on G+ +Shared Circles (Обмен кругами) 2012-10-26 23:07:274121323CC G+

Welp, my Pressy finally came yesterday -- I had almost forgotten about it. Unfortunately I left the android smartphone world 3 months ago. OK, but I'll just use it with my Nexus 7!

Have to say, it's a huge disappointment. It just doesn't seem to work. I looked at the Pressy app reviews and it seems like there are big problems.

Has anyone received one, and does it work for you?

We are much further away from true self-driving cars than people want to believe. I'd bet that most of the technologies will be adopted as driver aids, however, I don't think we'll see autonomous cars roaming our streets any time soon.

Our concept of "privacy" combines three things: first is secrecy, or our ability to keep the content of our messages known only to those we intend to receive them. Second is anonymity, or secrecy about who is sending and receiving messages, where the content of the messages may not be secret at all. It is very important that anonymity is an interest we can have both in our publishing and in our reading. Third is autonomy, or our ability to make our own life decisions free from any force that has violated our secrecy or our anonymity. These three – secrecy, anonymity and autonomy – are the principal components of a mixture we call "privacy".

Without secrecy, democratic self-government is impossible. Without secrecy, people may not discuss public affairs with those they choose, excluding those with whom they do not wish to converse.

Our concept of "privacy" combines three things: first is secrecy, or our ability to keep the content of our messages known only to those we intend to receive them. Second is anonymity, or secrecy about who is sending and receiving messages, where the content of the messages may not be secret at all.

Third is autonomy, or our ability to make our own life decisions free from any force that has violated our secrecy or our anonymity. These three – secrecy, anonymity and autonomy – are the principal components of a mixture we call "privacy".

Without secrecy, democratic self-government is impossible. Without secrecy, people may not discuss public affairs with those they choose, excluding those with whom they do not wish to converse.

Anonymity is necessary for the conduct of democratic politics. Not only must we be able to choose with whom we discuss politics, we must also be able to protect ourselves against retaliation for our expressions of political ideas. Autonomy is vitiated by the wholesale invasion of secrecy and privacy. Free decision-making is impossible in a society where every move is monitored, as a moment's consideration of the state of North Korea will show, as would any conversation with those who lived through 20th-century totalitarianisms, or any historical study of the daily realities of American chattel slavery before our civil war.

In other words, privacy is a requirement of democratic self-government. The effort to fasten the procedures of pervasive surveillance on human society is the antithesis of liberty. This is the conversation that all the "don't listen to my mobile phone!" misdirection has not been about. If it were up to national governments, the conversation would remain at this phoney level forever.

I think this is a great read, from Eben Moglen. (via Bruce Schneier's twitter feed)___

SPOILERS
So Star Trek: Into Darkness is now on Netflix streaming. I watched it the other night. I hate to say it but I came away with a really bad feeling. It wasn't Star Trek, it was a super-hero-monster-explosion-porn movie.

A giant starship plowing into San Francisco, leveling skyscrapers and presumably killing 10s of thousands of people on screen is not what Star Trek means to me. Yes, I know there have been other cataclysmic events depicted in Star Trek over the years, but never with the loving buildings-crashing-down detail that seems to be de rigueur post-9/11.

Wrath of Khan was so much better than this remake.</rant>

Using WP with Exchange (work email) is so easy -- hooray for usability. Integration with Windows does not feel intrusive or forced; the things that persist across the devices just make sense.

I know I won't convert anyone, but I am not regretting the move from Android at all. Looking forward to the MS/Nokia collaboration -- I think they could do some really interesting things, esp. with Nokia's GPS/mapping expertise.

Happy to answer any questions...___

So much hatred based on the idea that homosexuality is a "choice." And at the same time, everyone can look inside their own mind and know for a fact that they didn't "choose" their sexual orientation. It's mind boggling.

Let's see, what other completely unnecessary and insipid "innovations" can we propose? How about this:

Anheuser-Busch set to begin offering beer 'by the glass.' Special packaging is being developed and custom refrigeration units will be of course required for every establishment that wishes to compete in this market.

A "glass" of beer will cost slightly more than a bottle or draft, but A-B feels that customers demanding a "quick and ready" brew will happily pay a premium.  Beer served 'by the glass' will be made with recipes in line with the bland beer already favored by many Americans.___Wow, you can't make this stuff up.

Hide your kids, hide your wife, the war for women is a-comin'!!

I'm not sure I could come up with a worse metaphor and more mangled logical construction than this nonsense from Huckabee. Even if we grant that he's using rhetoric and not actually saying these things himself, what is the message he thinks Republicans can deliver with this great imagery? 

"Hey, women, by mandating that the insurance you buy provides reproductive health coverage, the government is calling you a slut. Just say no to insurance, because proper women pay out of pocket for their birth control!"

Wow, that is totally inspiring.

"Because the fact is, the Republicans don’t have a war on women. They have a war for women."

Mark, I'm hungry. Should I eat the BBQ chips that are kinda stale but sitting right next to me, or go all the way downstairs and make some chicken nuggets?

This is an intensely personal question I've often thought about asking you.
 
You are going to be immortal, man. Long after all of us are dead, the image of you as Luke Skywalker will be like Superman, or Harry Potter, or Gandalf, or Jesus. Even if the films are remade, your depiction of Luke will always be a spectre over whomever is playing him.
 
Are you humbled by this? Terrified? Typecast? Would you rather be known as a fictional character or the person portraying him?
 
[–]RealMarkHamillMark Hamill[S] 1319 points 2 hours ago
Great question. Well, I'm all those things. I'm certainly humbled. But's hard to really wrap one's head around. I didn't get into this business to be famous, I got in because I really like communicating. I wasn't even sure I was going to be an actor. So I look at that as Luke, not really as me. Luke is immortal and I'm just an actor who got the honor to play him.
 
You just have to just stay focused on what challenges you and what inspires you. And that's why I went to Broadway because I thought I'd get to explore new things. I'm not really somehow who goes back and re-watches old stuff I've done. I haven't seen any of the films since they were in the theater - originals or prequels. I thought the prequels are amazing by the way. If we were a garage band, they were a philharmonic. As George said, Star Wars is the most expensive small low movie ever made. Sorry, I think I got off on a tangent on this question.___

Browsing Google+ in IE11 on Win8.1 whenever I click a link I get a blank tab. I have to right-click and choose "Open in new tab". Anyone else see this? Is it a bug?

Welp.... b'bye LogMeIn. I can't say I didn't see this day coming, though it's been years in the making. However, I'm not paying $100/year for it. I'd rather just pay the one-time upcharge for WinPro, which has RDP access.

I have the top comment on this story, which I actually wrote first on Google+.

My biggest questions on all of the spying stuff are: where do people honestly think this is all heading?  Do we think that "American" technology and spying is going to "win?" What does that "win" look like -- what does it mean? Are we building a future, or is it just happening to us?

My deeply cynical takeaway from the Snowden revelations is that they tell us that technology may ultimately undo humanity. And that it may be out of our control.

I believe that whatever our government and the NSA is doing -- PRISM, Boundless Informant, etc. -- they are doing simply because they can; because the technology exists. It has nothing to do with the need or the threat, and everything to do with the capability. And although some of us "assumed" things like PRISMexi... more »

I believe that whatever our government and the NSA is doing -- PRISM, Boundless Informant, etc. -- they are doing simply because they can; because the technology exists. It has nothing to do with the need or the threat, and everything to do with the capability. And although some of us "assumed" things like PRISM existed, to have it confirmed brings new questions.

Where would they stop? When would they stop? What are the bounds? What is off limits? I believe that if the technology existed to silently extract our very thoughts and store them in a database forever, you could bet the NSA would be doing it. For every way we connect humans together using technology, the NSA will be there to observe it, record it and analyze it.

How much human creativity and energy has been spent to bring us to this point? You could say almost the entire capability of human ingenuity, invention, and achievement is represented in the construction of the internet, and all the technologies that "power" it. Was it all for nothing? It was supposed to "free" us, but has it really? Can it ever?

Debating whether Snowden is a hero or traitor is pointless now. What we should be asking ourselves is this: do we have control of our technology or not? If so, is this really what we want to do with it? And if not, where are we heading?___

Let's see, what other completely unnecessary and insipid "innovations" can we propose? How about this:

Anheuser-Busch set to begin offering beer 'by the glass.' Special packaging is being developed and custom refrigeration units will be of course required for every establishment that wishes to compete in this market.

A "glass" of beer will cost slightly more than a bottle or draft, but A-B feels that customers demanding a "quick and ready" brew will happily pay a premium.  Beer served 'by the glass' will be made with recipes in line with the bland beer already favored by many Americans.

Clearly we need to start arming movie theater ushers.

I think there is basically no hope for humanity at this point.

Sigh... well, the NYTimes seems to have picked up UI cues from Google+ for its redesign. We get the morphing top menu (with dropshadow!), the expanding home button, and -- in the comments section -- nested scroll bars. Oh, and it's buggy. Thanks a million Google.

Interesting article. I've always thought us '2nd-halfers' had a unique cultural perspective, as we were kids in the 60s, teenagers in the 70s, and adults in the 80s.

If you're an American child of the 1960s, I think you may recognize most of the images in my Pinterest board.
