matthew rappaport147,898499 +Google+ ers that are RELEVANT to me according to the PLUSarithmThis MEGA +Shared Circles on G+ is literally the 1st 499 names that are listed when RELEVANCE is selected and 'Your Circles' is clicked under https://plus.google.com/circles (very close to it!)There are 15 that I didn't include in the circle but made the cut that are celebs or pages that I will list below as I wanted to share more users overall in this #sharedcircle  which is almost entirely full of WIN.It is interesting that the first couple of rows are a mix of people I spent more time with in the beginning and with people I spend more time with now (which has interlap!) and of course how does one define 'spent time with' when talking about a social network place but the stream, hangouts, gtalk, +H.I.R.L., etc. The algorithm is not there yet to take note of all the data let alone measuring offline interaction but I tend to +mention people (a page in the Top 499, left out of this circle) a few people now and again, it seems the more you do that with a person or page, the more relevant they are to you in this list. I wonder if that data showing how many times you tagged someone and them you will be available in the future and if so, everyone can expect that number to be high for most from me!I do find it curious that +G+ Interviews which is a page started by +Peter G McDermott that I was helping with takes up my number 3 spot when I haven't tagged it in so long or done much with it in a bit nor felt I ever interacted with it to any level compared with those surrounding it. It's not a perfect system for sure and we all might have ones that slip through the crack that make us go, "Why is this person more relevant or WHO is this person?!"I am the +1 in this circle but everyone else is the +1000 zombies that +byron rempel will turn UNDEAD  +1000 that rocks the PLUS. I can vouchfor almost all the content being interesting, all the people though, that might be another ... WOAH :)~+Having said that, I will produce the next 500 Relevance Ci2013-01-04 19:14:28499403744CC G+
Christina Trapolino54,573#CircleSunday  November 18, 2012It's been several months since I last shared this Circle with you guys, but I'm really glad to be starting it up again.  I have been taking your suggestions into consideration, but this week I'm sharing three people with you who have been on my radar for some time:---+Isabelle Fortin is someone I found through a neat hashtag event called #MovieMashupTuesday .  The idea...well, you can find it by clicking on the hashtag.  Some of the images they come up with make me laugh out loud... IRL.  ;)  Isabelle's stream is also just plain interesting -- she is a self-confessed foodie (and so am I), and one of the few people whose Instagram posts don't annoy me.  I'm certain she'll add some quirky fun to your streams.I've been following +Ralph Roberts for quite some time -- he worked with NASA on the Apollo program (*dreamy sigh*), so you can take posts with titles such as "Does chocolate make you clever?" very seriously in his stream.  Furthermore, ever since I got an iPad, I've found Ralph's posts to consistently liven up my feeds with beautiful images.  If you're from Austin and you know who John Aielli is, you might understand why I freakin' love Ralph Roberts.Last but not least is +Chris Hoeller, who has been in my Circles for a very long time.  His posts are sometimes a lot like reading a Twitter feed -- short and funny -- but he also makes incredibly thought-provoking posts about technology and social media.  I suspect that if you enjoy my posts on the subject of communication, you'll like Chris a lot.---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday   feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!2012-11-19 03:11:2212014227CC G+

Andreas Schou3,113It's been a while since I shared this circle. But this is the circle I have turned up to full-blast. In any case, if you're just joining us: my feed is generally more esoteric than the circle which probably sent you here. While I'm interested in politics, I normally don't have a lot to say about the horse race. Most of what you'll get here will be policy, plus economics, law, history, neuroscience, medicine, and large block quotes from late 18th-century documents. I'm also read by a lot of people who disagree with me. I'd describe my general political outlook as 'pragmatic left-libertarian.' But if you encounter someone you disagree with, or disagree with me, then (a) don't feed the trolls, and (b) practice bad-faith good-faith. Pretend you're responding to the most reasonable interpretation of the post you just read. I'll do the same for you, and will expect everyone else in the crowd to do the same.In any case, hi. Who are you and what brought you here?2012-07-17 15:58:5559501CC G+
Christina Trapolino48,549July 15, 2012 #CircleSunday  It has been storming for almost a whole week in Austin!  Those of us who remember the wicked drought from last year (I wasn't a resident then, but a visitor several times) are grateful beyond words for the lower temperatures and the higher water levels in the lakes.  I am especially grateful for the storms because I can actually get more than 4 hours of sleep when it's raining.Stormy Sundays are probably the best thing ever (apart from brunch), and I've spent most of today browsing G+ and adding new folks to my 'potential Circle Sunday' list.  Here are the pleeps I've chosen for this week:---+Lil Peck has a slight obsession with horses.  I don't share that obsession (although I do like horses, and spent many summers as a little girl learning to ride them), but Lil Peck's Stream is just so dang interesting that I read it obsessively, anyway.  My favorite content of hers is tech-related -- especially when it's Google+ related.  Her latest post is an example of this (it's about how to make sure your Stream is drama-free): http://bit.ly/NvrXZV+Rachelle Doorley is an arts educator.  She also publishes something called Tinkerlab, which is actually pretty fascinating even if you're not a DIYer.  Speaking of DIY, my favorite part of Rachelle's profile is her suggestion of which Circles to add her to.  She lists DIY twice!  Whether it's intentional or not, I got a chuckle out of it because that's actually a fair analysis of her content: it's a lot of DIY/crafts stuff.  That said, I keep her in my "awesome A-list" Circle because her posts are fresh and unique.  Check out her latest post here: http://bit.ly/NJMquE+Jonathan Abbey is a testament to the power of the Nearby Stream.  By that, I mean that I found him through the first version of the mobile app for G+ -- he was posting from near my location, and I added him on a whim.  Several months later, and he's still on my read list!  He posts a lot of political stuff (fair warning if you like Romney -- Johnathan's Stream is unforgiving), but he's not preachy.  Talk about a rare find.  Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/NqjhFk---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday   feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!2012-07-16 01:21:3911718125CC G+
Christina Trapolino47,824July 1, 2012 #CircleSunday In a few days, it'll be my one year anniversary on Google+, but the platform itself celebrated its birthday this past week.  As a result, lots of people posted fantastic stories about their time here (check the #MyFirstPost  hashtag to peruse the Stream of posts), and I made a lot of new friends.  All three of my Circle Sunday recommendations below are a direct result of that.  I hope they bring something fresh to your Streams, as they have mine.  :)---+Mark Bruce is a regular #ScienceSunday  contributor who came to me via a shared Circle this past week.  If you're looking to beef up your science Circles, you can file Mark under awesome.  He hails from Adelaide in South Australia, which is where I went to some university a few years back.  It's a great, albeit quiet little town full of smart folks like Mark, IIRC.  Extra cool points awarded due to his self-proclaimed enthusiasm for transhumanism.  Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/LJ9YLLI have never recommended a Page in my Circle Sundays, but that's changing this week.  I stumbled across a Googler's new yoga page -- +Quantum Yoga -- during my Stream surfing this week and fell in love.  I want to get into yoga, but I've had some trouble making time for it.  +Brandon Seils' Page is helping me to increase my interest in the practice by highlighting its geeky side.  Maybe my next step will be to find a good yoga Hangout!  Check out the Page's latest post here: http://bit.ly/MNqKNf+Ivan Yudhi is more proof that commenting thoughtfully will get you noticed and Circled by people with common interests.  I found Ivan while hopping around several I/O conversations.  He posts a lot about sports as well as different smartphones and their creators (and other tech, in general).  His profile indicates he's into photography, and while I don't see a lot of his photos in his Stream, I'm hoping he'll take some pictures soon and share them!  Check out Ivan's latest post here: http://bit.ly/LYLBek---That's it for this week!

Christina Trapolino47,287June 17, 2012 #CircleSunday Hello again, Google+!This month has been tremendous for me -- as I continue to search for cultural clues that prove my hypothesis that society is evolving its use of social media, I've learned a great deal about the relationship between brands and bloggers (or, as I like to call them, citizen journalists).  More on this later in the week, when I share my takeaways from the Blog Her Food '12 conference in Seattle.For today, I'm very pleased to share these fine folks with y'all for Circle Sunday!---First up is +John Maguire, who is a clinical researcher at the University of Kansas. John livens up my Stream with fantastic posts about all sorts of topics (seriously, they range from sports to outer space), but my favorite thing about him comes from his profile: "Being green is [sic] doesn't have to reflect one's political status, rather learning how [to] better our way of living and sustaining a better place to live for future generations." Hear, hear! Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/MzMHzrI have well over 500 photographers in my Circles, and they are all super talented.  They certainly remind me that my Instagram account is strictly amateur.  Many of them have enormous followings, but some have been less exposed than others.  Case in point?  +Rainer Steinke is a street photographer whose taste and style are, in my opinion, spectacular. This is my favorite of his recent posts: http://bit.ly/MXbUkM+Kyle Sullivan is an exobiology major (bonus nerd points) whose posts are endlessly interesting.  I like Kyle's Stream so much because he mixes NASA information with a quirky sense of humor (he initially caught my attention when I saw some re-shares of his #AwayTeamPorn posts -- y'all know how I feel about Star Trek).  Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/M5sdws---That's it for this week!

Christina Trapolino46,899June 3, 2012 #CircleSunday  Hello again, Google+!  I've been a very busy girl for the past couple of weeks, but I've still been surfing my Streams and looking out for great people to feature for Circle Sunday.  Today, I'd like to share the latest three additions to my #CircleSunday  Circle:---+David Garcia has been in my Circles for a long time, and I've been meaning to feature him for much of that time.  His posts are uplifting and his message is something we can all relate to from time to time.  David has a blog called, "Keep it up, David!" and it's about his battle with losing weight.  He's doing a great job, which is nice to see, but what makes his approach really special is that he doesn't focus on weight all the time.  Rather, he chooses to highlight great things to eat for their taste and nutritional value, which makes his content engaging for anyone -- trying to lose weight or not.  Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/LrbDGU+Gunther Cox only has about 1,100 followers and I have no idea why he doesn't have way more than that, so I'm hoping this feature will help spread his content to a larger audience.  Gunther posts about what is probably the coolest thing ever -- robots.  He makes them and posts about them!  Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/Le1mBLI'd like to let +Jonathan Chalker's profile speak for itself (boy, I love when people really take the time to fill that sucker out): "I am a proud first generation G+ user. In G+ I write articles about science, technology, music, design (web and product), philosophy, media, and customer service in the digital world. I also follow quite a few people, read most of their posts, and actively comment (yay, me)."  He really is an interesting guy to follow! Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/KZtWV6---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday   feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!2012-06-04 00:43:5110912025CC G+

Andreas Schou2,568Apparently thanks to my inclusion in +Mike Shaw's shared circle, my follower count seems to have increased precipitously today. When that happens, it seems like the thing to do is an introductions thread. Let me start by explaining precisely what you've added: My feed is fairly wide-ranging. While I'm interested in horserace politics, I normally don't have a lot to say about it. You're likely to hear more about policy, which is the majority of what you'll get, plus some science, some economics, some law, some history, and some large block quotes from late 18th-century documents. Ideologically, I'm a pragmatic left-libertarian. If that's sort of the stuff you'd like, this post contains a second circle with more of the same.I'm also read by a lot of people who disagree with me, some of whom I've included in this small but active circle. Some I disagree with a little bit, and some vituperatively. don't have anyone in my comments whom I'd consider a troll. Two tips: (a) if I do end up with a troll, don't feed him, and (b) if you think someone's not writing something in good faith, practice bad-faith good-faith. When you post, pretend you're responding to the most reasonable interpretation of the post you just read. If you're up for that, great. Glad to have you. Hi. So, who are you?2012-04-17 15:20:4882204CC G+
Louis Gray115,286Shared Circle: Engaging Women On Google+Last night +Daria Musk highlighted the top 50 women on Google+ who bring great content to her stream. As you can imagine, all users of Google+ bring unique value, but what I've found from having a circle dedicated to some of the great women on Google+, even as that circle has grown to hundreds, is incredible diversity and discovery of new interests.That's not to say men are boring... but... I digress. Here is my updated circle of great ladies on Google+. Add as many or as few as you like, and be prepared for some fantastic content and smart people.2012-04-13 17:44:35382272152CC G+
Christina Trapolino44,279April 8, 2012 #CircleSunday First of all, happy Easter (or Zombie Jesus Day, depending on your preference), everybody! Yesterday was my birthday, so I drove to Dallas to see some friends and am currently in recovery mode after having a large amount of celebratory champagne (shhh, please pass the Advil). Regardless, I'm happy to share three of my newest Circle Sunday recommendations with you all!---+Bud Gibson is a business professor who specializes in technology and online marketing. His Stream, however, is mostly filled with rather pretty photographs and interesting notes about social platforms. Check out one of his latest photographs here: http://bit.ly/Hq1v3J.+Melissa Bryan is a self-labeled "geeky gamer girl," and as a former gamer myself, I find her Stream to often feel like a kindred's. She's got a great sense of humor and her posts will add a nice dash of comedy to your Stream. Check out her latest, Easter-themed post here: http://bit.ly/Hq3iWt (it makes me giggle).I've been paying more attention to my Photography Circles lately, and +Jacob Dix has been posting some of the more unique photos I've seen in the past couple of weeks. He often posts photos with a #MobileOnly tag, which is not something I was previously familiar with. The effects, however, are really more interesting than I would have thought (obviously, I know nothing about photography!). Here is my favorite recent photo of his: http://bit.ly/IcQPRU.---That's it for this week!

Christina Trapolino43,425March 25 - #CircleSunday I hope y'all had wonderful weekends. I spent mine with the Italian side of my family. We celebrated a very early Easter and ate plenty of Italian food, so I'm pretty worn out. Luckily, I've had most of today to rest. And it being Sunday means that it's time for me to share my picks for you to add to your Circles this week!---+Jason Salas is someone I've been following since my first week on Google+. He's a very sharp guy who posts at the most ridiculous times possible (well, for me -- but I live in Texas and he lives in Guam!) but always has something funny, fascinating, or insightful to say. The content he curates is usually of interest to me, but I think my favorite thing about him is that he's a Bob's Burgers fan. It takes a special kind of humor to like Bob's Burgers, and Mr. Salas shares it with me. Maybe you're into quirky comedy, too? You'll like Jason, then. Check out one of his latest posts here: http://bit.ly/GRgLGF.+Lizzy Miles caught my attention by making clever comments on some interesting discussions and I added her to my Probation Circle (if you don't know what that is, jog your memory here: http://bit.ly/uJNTzm). She's got a very interesting Stream full of well-curated content and a really robust profile, although I especially agree with this part: "Lizzy Miles changes her mind frequently about her career identity, but has always held true to her enthusiasm for written and oral storytelling." For a sample of what Lizzy has to offer, check out one of her latest posts here: http://bit.ly/H2YO75.+Jadey A-S Wilson has been in my Circles for a long time, and her posts have always been a welcome part of my Stream, even though she clearly refuses to fill out her profile (or make it public, I'm not sure which is the issue). ;) Her thoughts and commentary are usually a departure from the norm, which is what makes her a permanent resident in my "Recommended" Circle, which is publicly visible on my profile. Check out her latest post here: http://bit.ly/GRO4Ul.---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!2012-03-26 04:34:24858118CC G+
Jimmy James1,980Ok... Here is what I consider to be a valuable circle indeed. My first shared circle, so why not start with the Best ....Ladies . If you know the G+ Men to Women ratio.... you know there are too few ladies out here so far. Add this circle to balance your stream a bit. There are some very interesting people in here. I left it at 400 to start in case I miss any ladies who want to be added. If I missed you and you would like to be in this circle... let me know. ....this circle includes 1 really cool guy.... the guy all these fantastic Ladies have in common2012-03-16 18:31:504001457CC G+
Andrea Memenas4,752It stinks that I can't share this entire circle (it's up to 605 and G+ only allows you to share up to 500) with you, but 500 smart chicks is better than none. Happy International Women's Day! Please circle these kick-ass females!2012-03-08 23:09:13500405CC G+
Louis Gray104,456International Women's Day: A Circle of Top Women on G+Today is International Women's Day http://www.internationalwomensday.com/.In honor of the day, here's a list of some of the most active G+'ers and tech savvy women I interact with on the network. I called this the "Women in Tech" circle when I first created it a few months back, and visiting this circle is a regular stop for me to see diverse updates and interests. I recommend adding this as its own circle and setting the volume slider to what makes sense for you. Over time, I bet a bunch of these people will be some of your favorites in your circles.2012-03-08 22:22:39229251835CC G+
Liz Krane8,299In honor of International Women's Day, I'm sharing my circle of sciencey/techy/geeky women who are also active G+ users. :) Some are scientists, programmers, engineers, science writers, math lovers, lovable geeks and nerds... and all of them will contribute some great posts to your stream.I first shared this circle to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day, and it has grown a bit, but I know it's missing a lot of people! So please shout out who else I should add!2012-03-08 17:22:41138171131CC G+

Jaana Nyström27,889#circlesharing #circlesunday My Google employees CircleHave you noticed that there is another circle sharing possibility: When you look at a certain circle's stream, there is a green button on the right saying Share this circle.That's what I'm testing right now.

Chris Hoyt1,112Circle Back to GoogleLooking for people who work at Google? Here's a great circle that's a strong addition to any search you've already performed on Google Plus and that I'd include with any other search for Googlers that you've already conducted.What's interesting to me (and that I'm getting around to pointing out) is that whether you're just looking to expand your network as a member of Google+ or actively #recruiting and #sourcing online, I believe that you'll find infinite value from the proper care and feeding of Google Plus circles. In fact, if done correctly (and maintained) it's a fantastic way to filter your Google Plus stream and check the pulse of any company, organization or interest group.In the event you missed it, I did an article back in August that mentioned my interest in Circles and how I'd be exploring the management of them. (http://www.recruiterguy.net/recruiting-management-circles) So far, I've not been disappointed in the ability to really hone in on an area of interest by filtering my streams based on these circles and simply watching the conversation flow. Of course, being able to quickly see all of the updates from a particular company or interest group is just the start. The more proficient we get with our filtering, the easier it is to get the latest from fun entrepreneurs, CEO's, diversity interest groups, active and passive jobseekers and more - these are just a few of my own circles, mind you. You have the ability to filter by profession, seniority, geography, language, etc.The possibilities are endless!I'd love to hear how you, or others, are using circles to manage the information stream you've found in G+ so far.2012-01-04 20:07:36348211CC G+
Christina Trapolino32,823And now...the first #CircleSunday of 2012I'm thrilled that my first post of 2012 is a shared Circle filled with wonderfully talented and interesting people -- it seems in line with one of my resolutions for this year, which is to promote the good work of others in any way I can. Other resolutions and reflections will come later, but for now...I'm really happy to present the following three people for your Circling consideration.---+Mitch Wagner always has an interesting article to share, but it's his personal opinions and musings that I really watch out for and pay attention to. He's been a really fun and often thought provoking addition to my Circles and I'm sure he will be for you, also. Read his post about how he read before the Internet here: http://bit.ly/vu4G8w.+Richard Stephenson is someone I've followed for many weeks on Google+. He always has something interesting to post, and there is a wide variety of topics and forms of media in his Stream. You'll find everything from personal stories to shares about cars that recognize the shape of your backside (yeah, I was a little weirded out by that, too). Check out his share of Woody Guthrie's New Years Resolutions here: http://bit.ly/uwxGIm+Kristen Marhaver is a postdoctoral researcher and a coral biologist. I have had her in my Circles for a long time, and I'm always eager to see what she has to share. Unfortunately, she doesn't share as often as others...but her work is so interesting that I'm hoping this gentle nudge will persuade her to share more of her stunning photography and fascinating tidbits with us on Google+. Check out her latest post here: http://bit.ly/vCnSaX---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino(make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique).Happy New Year, Plussers! <32012-01-02 03:17:46668213CC G+

Christina Trapolino25,955#CircleSunday is here!I think this is the first Sunday I've been at home to post a Circle Sunday in over a month, and nothing is slowing down. Soon, I'll be moving to #Austin, TX, where I'll be starting a new job and a new chapter in life. There are only 24 hours in a day, but lately I find myself wishing there were more hours, or that sleep was less necessary. It isn't, by the way. Sleep as much as you can.Still, #CircleSunday is an excuse for me to drown out the noise all around me, to slow down and really appreciate the things that go on in my Streams. This week, I want to introduce you to three people who have been particularly interesting for me. I hope they will inspire you, too.---How do you feel about fine art? If you're like me, you wish you knew more about it and that you had time to be exposed to more of it. If that sounds right, you'll really like +Portrait Artist Enzie Shahmiri. She shares fine art from all over, and she even labels her posts so that you know who the artist is and how it was painted. She's also an artist herself, of course, and her own art is often very impressive, although I suspect it would be more impressive in person. Enzie really makes my Stream feel a little more classy, by the way. See if she doesn't add a bit of the finer side to yours! Check out her latest share here: http://bit.ly/vUi5Kk+Timothy Lake describes himself as a "common sense existentialist with authority issues," which is enough to entice on its own, but his posts really follow through. He often shares things that I wouldn't have likely seen otherwise, like this awesome #TEDTalk on how to spot liars (http://bit.ly/t6qgzi), but his own content is always very interesting, too. Timothy likes to examine the world around him and when he writes, it's obvious that his feelings are sincere and his observations are completely authentic, which makes the text engaging. He also has a really quirky sense of humor. See for yourself!+Mikael sh is Swedish, devilishly handsome, and has a reasonable following already (over 7,000!) -- but his posts are just so interesting that I think anyone who hasn't stumbled across him yet should have a look. The post I'm linking is tagged as #SentimentalSunday (http://bit.ly/tsmSrk), but Mikael openly admits that his share isn't even personally sentimental to him. I like that he participates honestly. He's a mixed bag -- you'll find posts about everything from science to martial arts in his Stream, so he's tough to categorize. But like others who fit that bill, I think it's a plus!---That's it for this week! Please feel free to suggest folks for a #CircleSunday feature. Please note, however, that the "Send a message" link in my profile is not the best way to go about doing so. I know at least three people sent me recommendations that way this past week and I just couldn't find the posts again after seeing them once, so please use the "Send an email" link or tweet at me if that strikes your fancy (@cmtrapolino). That way I won't have to dig for the recommendation later!H2011-11-14 00:08:064929620CC G+

Christina Trapolino22,130October 23: #CircleSundayEvery Sunday, I like to share three new Plussers with you all who make my Streams more fun to read. This is my favorite thing to do on Google+ because it's an exercise in discovery. I have a lot of people in my "potential Circle Sunday" Stream, and it's always difficult to choose just three per week. This week was no exception, but I managed to narrow it down.Enjoy!---+Terrence Lui is one of the most interesting people I've added to my Circles recently. He writes about a whole variety of topics, from marathon running to tech business analysis. His posts are always carefully thought out and his level of interaction on them is impressive. His latest post is titled "Strange Running Injuries" -- and it made me cringe while laughing. A good combination, I think! Check it out here: http://bit.ly/p0Wm0S+Anthony Fox writes a serial fantasy/comedy on Google+ called Quest for the Hobo King. It's pretty funny, and a really neat idea. I like that with every installment comes a cute book cover -- complete with Google+ reviews! Anthony also regularly shares Circles of different MBTI personality types. I haven't tried adding the Circles yet, myself, but I wonder if you'd notice different types of posts in each one. I look forward to Anthony's analysis when he's completed all 16 Circles. For the latest installment of Quest for the Hobo King, click here: http://bit.ly/pMzPZM+Craig Newman has been in my Circles almost since the very beginning of my time on Google+. A writer for the Chicago Sun-Times as well as a journalism professor, Craig was part of that first wave of journalists who came to Google+ while invitations were still necessary, and he always has an interesting article or story to share. He's also very engaged with the community on Google+. I've run into Craig's comments on lots of different posts, and they're always well structured and insightful. If you're looking for a great conversation, posts he's commenting on are a great place to start. For those of you who have been with me since the first few Circle Sundays, you'll know that sometimes I share people whose content I wish was shared more on Google+ itself. Craig has been here a long time, but I want to see more of his thoughts and I think the boost in engagement will help with that.---That's it for this Sunday! As always, please feel free to send me your recommendations for #CircleSunday via the "Send an email" link on my profile. I love hearing from y'all.Happy Plussing!Christina Trapolino shared a circle with you.2011-10-24 00:33:234020733CC G+

There are only a few pieces of advice about parenting that I've seen backed up with peer-reviewed data: (1) talk as much as you can manage with your infants and toddlers, (2) vaccinate (barring exceptional health circumstances), and (3) spin your baby around vigorously on a swivel chair.

One study offers particularly provocative evidence of the benefits of vestibular stimulation. These researchers exposed babies, who ranged in age from three to thirteen months, to sixteen sessions of chair spinning: Four times a week for four weeks, the infants were seated on a researcher’s lap and spun around ten times in a swivel chair, each spin followed by an abrupt stop. To maximize stimulation of each of the three semicircular canals, the spinning included one or two rotations in each direction with the babies held in each of three positions: sitting, with the head tilted forward about 30 degrees, ands... more »

Oh, this is a beautiful attack.  Because web security is based around permission instead of authority [1], web pages are (with few exceptions) only allowed to ask for content from the same domain that the web page was served from.  

Sometimes, though, you'd like to get some data from someone else's website (say, search results from Google) and do something with it.  Nowadays, the answer is CORS [2], but for years, the only way was JSONP.  You'd put a script tag in your web page like
 <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/services/search/web?v=1.0&q=kittens&callback=myJsonpFunction">
and Google would reply with
 myJsonpFunction({ ... })
where I've left out the search results.  Note that by design, the provider of the data echoes back whatever method you put at the end of the URL.

This itself causes a problem: ifyou echo... more »

An excellent demonstration that capitalism is an optimisation strategy, not an ethical system. Setting the rules of the game, the box within which the economic system functions, is separate from how you choose whether to have a planned economy, capitalism, potlatch, or anarcho-syndicalism.

NB An excellent point that +Erika Rice Scherpelz pulled out: demand for social services is directly driven by how much workers have (or don't). Less pay-> more demand. More pay-> less demand. We have quite a bit of data supporting this, in fact.

Planet Money had an interesting piece about "a world without banks", one in which people engage in p2p lending. This already exists in a semi-organized form called "lending clubs", where you can either give parameters for loans you'd like to automatically underwrite (e.g. for people with good credit scores) or pore over volumes of data about an applicant to decide whether they seem trustworthy. There are advantages to this system, the largest being that banks aren't tempted to make a trip to Vegas with the savings accounts[1].

I have two worries:

1. At any economic downturn, the crowd from which loans are sourced will get freaked out and sit on their collective hands/money. Instant liquidity crunch. Hello depression!

2. Fair lending[2]. Access to credit is a huge advantage for business creation, financial health, and home ownership. We have not,... more »

I keep getting the impression the web is impossible to use.

Today, I was printing something at the airport, and this lady came with her iPad trying to print something.

The way it works is you go to http://faxzero.com and fax your file to the fax machine. Easy. Or so you would think.

She actually typed http://faxzero.com in the URL then clicked on the first result (from Bing) which happened to be an http://about.com site iframing http://faxzero.com. Not the site itself.

She tried a couple times but failed. The site said "missing required fields".

She tried a couple times in front of me (and.. It worked for me!). So I was as confused as her.

Then.. I realized. It was an iframe and she was using an iPad. Safari third party cookies! It wasn't liking the CAPTCHA since faxzero didn't have a session cookie because Safari stripped... more »

The CIA may not confirm nor deny their first tweet, but we do know where that ubiquitous phrase came from: the Glomar Explorer and its huge,nuclear-wessel grabbing claw.

How a sunken nuclear submarine, a crazy billionaire, and a mechanical claw gave birth to a phrase that has hounded journalists and lawyers for 40 years and embodies the tension between the public’s desire for transparency and the government’s need to keep secrets.

Californians! I have an excellent reason for you to vote: Orly Taitz. She wishes to use the Attorney General's office to nullify things she doesn't like, e.g. a) the NSA, b) the ACA, c) the EPA. She also wants to prosecute people because she thinks President Obama is an illegal immigrant of some stripe, then move on to seek legitimacy of voters and candidates.

I bet you have strong feelings about whether she should be elected or not. Please go write them on a ballot.

Here's what she'd like to tell you about herself:
Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. is both a licensed attorney and a licensed doctor in CA, a businesswoman, a wife of 27 years, and a mother of 3 sons.

What is the statue of limitations on the "displacement" of persons? Their lifetimes? If so short, then a country can push out a persecuted minority for a generation, then wash their hands of the whole debacle. Indefinitely? The claims of the displaced, in that case, would cover the Earth.

There is a small religious group in Pennsylvania who claim to have been completely displaced longer than the USA has existed. The implied claim on Silesia is rather shocking to me at this remove.

By the time he died in 1561, Schwenckfeld had gathered about him a small group of devotees who met secretly in each other’s homes. They carried with them the brand of heretic, and for the next hundred and fifty years faced nearly constant persecution. They were imprisoned, fined, forced into periodic exile, sent to Vienna as galley slaves, or pressed into military service against the Turks. Womenw... more »

A deliciously schadenfreude-tastic telling of the legal takedown of some hilariously inept copyright trolls/fraudsters, Prenda Law. They had a "business plan" based on: a) buying worthless porn films, b) putting them on the internet, and c) suing people for downloading them. What they evidently didn't realize at the time was that they were also letting themselves in for secret part (d): lie about this, then get sued into oblivion and disbarred after multiple federal judges get very angry in rather entertaining fashion.

It's long, but the facepalm per word ratio is exceptionally high, so stick with it.

This may be the first useful-looking bike gear KickStarter project that I've seen. They're a little doohickey that clips into your clipless pedals to make them into temporary platform pedals.

PS Don't judge me for my love of clipless pedals. It is a pure love and will have nothing to do with the abomination which is half-platform and half-clipless pedals; I don't want to fumble with my pedals going up a hill or with a baby on the back.

Wubgubgub evidently means "welcome to the Google+ offices" in Snowy Egret.

Don't stand underneath them, though. They're not as friendly as the rest of the team.

The worst suggestion for a host gift I've ever seen: Magnolia tree.
Tree-mendous token. At nearly four feet, it's an impressive offering. It gets planted, yields white blooms, and grows up to 50 feet tall.

Please don't take this as a suggestion to bring a puppy instead. Anyone seen anything worse?

Well, what is a womb?
Well, a womb is a room.
A womb is a room
Where a kid will be soon.

But the kid must be small
If there's one there at all
Just the size of a bean
Or the size of a ball.

Dear LazyPlus, what is a fun simple dicefest game?

I have a small child who really, really likes Abandon Ship (played without scoring) because it's a dice fest. I thought something like Zombie Dice might be another fun option, but boardgamegeek is failing me on a search for dicefest games.

There are only a few pieces of advice about parenting that I've seen backed up with peer-reviewed data: (1) talk as much as you can manage with your infants and toddlers, (2) vaccinate (barring exceptional health circumstances), and (3) spin your baby around vigorously on a swivel chair.

One study offers particularly provocative evidence of the benefits of vestibular stimulation. These researchers exposed babies, who ranged in age from three to thirteen months, to sixteen sessions of chair spinning: Four times a week for four weeks, the infants were seated on a researcher’s lap and spun around ten times in a swivel chair, each spin followed by an abrupt stop. To maximize stimulation of each of the three semicircular canals, the spinning included one or two rotations in each direction with the babies held in each of three positions: sitting, with the head tilted forward about 30 degrees, ands... more »

A deeply moving documentary about women and the way our society has changed:

MAKERS: Women Who Make America tells the remarkable story of the most sweeping social revolution in American history, as women have asserted their rights to a full and fair share of political power, economic opportunity, and personal autonomy. It’s a revolution that has unfolded in public and private, in courts and Congress, in the boardroom and the bedroom, changing not only what the world expects from women, but what women expect from themselves. MAKERS brings this story to life with priceless archival treasures and poignant, often funny interviews with those who led the fight, those who opposed it, and those first generations to benefit from its success.

I'm nearly shocked that medieval people managed to reproduce at all, frankly. I'd be more shocked if I believed that people managed to follow all these rules.

Level 3 writes: "Not only are packets being dropped, but all those not being dropped are also subject to delay. ... They are deliberately harming the service they deliver to their paying customers ... Five of those congested peers are in the United States and one is in Europe. There are none in any other part of the world. All six are large Broadband consumer networks with a dominant or exclusive market share in their local market. In countries or markets where consumers have multiple Broadband choices (like the UK) there are no congested peers ... Shouldn't a broadband consumer network with near monopoly control over their customers be expected, if not obligated, to deliver a better experience than this?"

Hawaiians really got to the root of what it means to be a monarchy: not only do they praise their current leader, but encourage the creation of the next generation of leaders in (often very funny -- see link) song and dance. This is a hula with a plea for continuity and, ultimately, for survival in the face of the disease brought by sailors and cultural change brought by missionaries.

Soon after the birth of a child, the people gathered to name it. Two names were selected for each child, a regular name and a pet name for his sex organs. These parts were not considered ugly or disgusting to the Hawaiians, who loved them as the life-giving power. Consequently they were given a pet name, and then the people composed a song or chant in honor of that name and, of course, a dance to go with it.

Dear Recruiters of the World,

If you are going to claim that someone is a perfect match for whatever it is that you're looking for, that claim is far more credible if you: a) are reasonably specific and b) show any kind of understanding of your target's skills.

Sincerely,
Someone who isn't looking for a job anyway but who is far more impressed by someone who at least understands that I'm a security and privacy sort, even if you don't happen to know the rather more rare job that I actually do

Let's pause and consider that there is more than one way to avoid recidivism. At stake: our common humanity.

Best. Analogy. Ever.
 
There's a useful analogy to the phone company that I've written about here before: you pay for your phone service every month. The pizza place on the corner also pays for its phone service every month. When you want to order a pizza from Joe's Corner Pizzeria, you call their number. If their phone isn't engaged, it rings and you get to place your order. If they get more orders than they can handle on one line, they buy a second line, a third, even 10 lines to take their orders. Provided one of those lines is free, your call goes through to someone when you ring.
 
But what if your phone company decided that the way to bring in higher profits was to go around to all the pizza places and shake them down for "premium" access to "their" customers? If Joe's Corner Pizzeria turned them down, your call to Joe's mightg... more »
