Dylan Cuffy0#WhatLiesAground Well...you've been waiting for days, so I'll give it to you now.Welcome to the final edition of what I now dub the Fab 500! Time to say hello (and happy Easter) to this bunch of fine folks. Eleven here, not the usual ten, because someone's account went bye-bye without a word:• +Louie Baur, +Empire Avenue stalwart; ask for him whenever you want aerial views of your car dealership• +Alexander Moschella, a furry who also thrives on +Fiverr• +Juan Reyes (poet hailing from Texas; not that +Juan Reyes, our last milestone man. Thanks, +A Long!)• +Karen Woodward (yet another lit geek; thanks, +Sarah Brown!)• +Philippe TREBAUL (circled through an Empire mission)• +Domenico Mallimo (who had another milestone of his own—15,000 followers—the other day)• +Chris Voss (who recently gave FB users a compelling reason to switch to G+ or elsewhere)• +Kenneth Burchett (follower #10,000 of mine; also, a spot in my Marigot Magic dedication)• +Ray Hamlet (Dominica's second-best on G+)• +Angie Person (another Caribbean user, this time from Aruba; thanks, 2014-04-20 21:55:195000010CC G+

Shivakant Tripathi1,650Here is my 1st circle of engaging plussers. This is the only circle that I share publicly and it's made up of the awesome people who I follow and interact with regularly. If you received a notification then you are in it! I curate the be-jesus out of this circle and you don't get in just by doing the plus, comment, share  thing on this post. I make this circle up based on interactions on all of my other posts.Sharing, commenting, plussing is all encouraged and appreciated BUT re-share for your own reasons. Sharing won't get you in, not sharing will not get you tossed out. Again - not that kind of circle.There is plenty of room, Circle will be revised. #engagerscircle   #engagersshowcasecircle   #circleshare  2014-04-16 21:05:12198001CC G+

Chinavasion Electronics7,742Top Engagers interested in Tech and Gadgets 14 04 07If you received a notification, it means that you're included in this Circle. We believe in creating targeted circles, therefore we have analyzed our recent posts carefully and picked the people who reshared or commented on posts related to electronic gadgets and interesting / new technologies. We build circles every time from scratch. We focus on quality.This circle consist of people who like technology and of several highly influential people on Google Plus from which you can learn a lot about this awesome social network. One of them is +Richard Green who gave us this idea to promote other people's quality content. So, you are invited to leave a comment (on the original post) with a link to one of your own posts, which ideally should be one of your best recent posts. We will pick top 10 and embed the links in our next circle share.As always, reshares of this circle are appreciated, and we look forward to seeing everyone's links. Thanks for reading our posts! #techcircle   #sharingcircles   #electronics_circle #chinavasion_circle #techpeople #googleplusengagers2014-04-07 22:43:4520513746CC G+

Ian Archibald19,730People I Learn FromWe all have people we like to learn from, who we might look up to to act as a mentor and people we connect with.  This share is people who meet these criteria for me.I haven't crafted any circle shares of late, and those who remember the shares that I created during Christmas took a lot of effort - sorting through 100's of posts, locating the top people/posts/engagement, etc.  The last significant one I did took me over 7 hours to produce.  I really enjoy creating them, but alas I don't have that much time.Who's in this circle?A lot of people you likely know and may already have circled. There are educators, scientists, speakers, developers, SEO Experts and just plain awesome people.I know many people like to add rules to their circle shares. Personally, I don't. There are many reasons for this, but let's just say, I don't like spam and the countless BS Community requests that surely follow. In short, don't blindly add people just for the sake of doing so.How Can I Get Into This Circle?I don't add people blindly.  Each person in this list has been vetted. If there needs to be some rules to end up here...• Be active - No activity = no circle.• Create Quality Content - I want to hear what you have to say• Be Original - Be Awesome• Engage with people. If you're not being seen, who will find you?Hope you all have a great week!2014-03-31 01:02:36186182223CC G+

Plus the Circle if you are in! (and share it; this won't cost you anything)2. Plus and share it if you are not in the circle (I will include you).3.

Ian Archibald16,093Circle of Google PlussersSo, I often get asked Who should I circle?  I say whomever strikes your interest. Find topics of interest and connect with those people who share that interest.I would very much like to share with you "my" circle of Plussers of whom I LOVE to engage with.  There are people in science, sports, networking, technology, comics, art and medicine found inside, and likely some others as well.  I've been spending the last couple years curating this list.I hope that you will connect with some of these folks!Have a great weekend everyone!2014-02-15 01:16:53326182224CC G+
Ian Archibald16,093G+ Circle of AwesomeI've been slacking lately when it comes to circle sharing.  My "Circle of Major Sharers" takes a long time to produce (7+ hours).  With recent events at my RL work, I am left with little time.So, here's my top circle. The people in this list are the people I look for when I log on. You will see a lot of familiar names, and perhaps a couple you may not.If you're interested in learning about Google (in general), the internet, technology, science and more, why not add this little circle to your own.Sharing is AWESOME2014-02-15 00:28:0952224CC G+

How to make and use Moroccan preserved lemons.

If you like Moroccan food, chances are you've had Moroccan preserved lemon. It is a key ingredient in Moroccan cuisine. But if you've never made any food seasoned with Moroccan preserved lemon then you're missing out in the joy of eating this delightful treat.

Ian Walker made his own preserved lemons and asked me for suggestions on using them (this post is inspired by his question).

Moroccan preserved lemons are delicious when they’ve been preserved well and can enhance almost any dish they’re added to. You can even eat it plain -- cut a small piece and have a taste. The skin or zest including the pith is actually the best part. Unlike fresh lemons, preserved lemons are mildly tangy, a little salty and not really bitter. They have a hint of sweetness. 

You can find Moroccan preserved lemons atspec... more »

Samsung is preparing for a 'post-Google era.'

Samsung Medial Solution Center President Hong Won-pyo told reporters today that Samsung is rapidly developing its Tizen operating system as an alternative to Android in preparation for a "post-Google era."

He said Samsung will release products that run on Tizen "as early as possible" and is looking for mergers and acquisitions to speed up the process of moving off Android.

The biggest barrier right now, he said, are "poor market conditions" (i.e. that Tizen doesn't have any apps).

Microsoft Mobile Oy is the name of Microsoft's future handset division.

When the acquisition of Nokia's business is complete, the group will remain in Finland and be called Microsoft Mobile Oy, according to leaked documents. The word "Oy" is Finnish that mean something like "LLC." or "Corp."

It's also Yiddish for "ouch," but it's likely Microsoft has the Finnish one in mind.

Something I don't understand about beer.

Every knowledgeable person will tell you that brewing beer involves sterilization, precise temperature control and isolated brewer's yeast. 

These are considered necessary to create beer, and yet my belief or assumption is that for most of the history of beer brewing, these elements weren't present. For most of this history, people didn't even know that bacteria existed or that yeast were microscopic organisms. Yet mediaeval households in Europe, for example, churned out beer like it was no big deal -- all without (I assume) sterilization, thermometers and packets of brewer's yeast. 

Recreations of mediaeval beer I've found online still call for isolated yeast, sterilization and precise temperatures. 

As I understand it, these elements are necessary to remove bacteria from the fermentationpr... more »

Tech News Today 988: The Future of TV is in the Aereo

TV changes forever on Tuesday. But which way will it go?

Watch this debate now: http://twit.tv/tnt/988

The legality of Aereo goes before the Supreme Court Tuesday. If they win the case, an explosion of Aereo-like companies could start streaming live TV online and the network broadcasters could move everything to cable-only. 

If they lose, control remains in the hands of the network broadcasters and Aereo -- and their whole model -- goes out of business immediately. 

Will they win or will they lose? Aereo investor Barry Diller says it's 50-50. +Dwight Silverman says Aereo will win. Ted Johnson (a writer for the Hollywood trade publication +Variety) says they'll lose.

I believe the next big thing in computing is the audio interface. Call it hearable computing. http://goo.gl/y2sKdG

Hearable computing is not a sub-genre of wearable computing, nor mobile computing, nor desktop computing. It’s a thing unto its own. And I believe it will take two forms: First, the always listening, ubiquitous microphone; and second, the always listening user.

I just don't understand the 'we're serving you coffee' argument.

The self-described "anarchists" in San Francisco who are harassing +Kevin Rose and blaming him personally for the cost of living in San Francisco keep complaining that you technology employees are getting rich and "we're serving you guys coffee."

This same line came up with the previous stories about Kevin Rose being harassed by the same group, presumably.

The coffee thing makes zero sense because:

1. Doesn't pretty much everyone drink coffee? Isn't it pretty inexpensive? Why the coffee obsession?

2. Doesn't buying coffee help create jobs? Would the people serving coffee be better off if fewer people bought it?

3. If being a barista is too demeaning, do the protesters think the baristas would be promoted to... more »

It's That Easy or Hard!   #perspectivedeterminesaction  

From thousands of miles away, Silicon Valley can feel like a magic box: normal people enter and out pop billionaires. But the startup ecosystem is much like the Wizard of Oz, where, when you pull back the green curtain, there stands a man.

There’s actually a fairly systematic process behind the formation, growth and financial success of many startups. Which is not to say that it is a fool’s errand to launch a successful startup and grow it into a billion-dollar company, but only to say that it has been done, and there is a worn path and a mature ecosystem surrounding this routine.
