Robert Best2,685Google+ Relevance CircleWhat people of "relevance" do we have in common? Care to share?This big shared circle contains my most "relevant" circles according to G+. It also only contains people/profiles who post publicly (Either occasionally or prolifically).Do you recognize others in the list? (I think the probability is high)As far as I know, the visual beside the "Add people" button below shows you the 8 people from this circle who are most "relevant" to you. Also, if you click that add people button, the list inside is ordered by "relevance".Some people in this circle I know very well... others I haven't met at all (Besides interfacing with what they share publicly on G+) I'm curious, what circles do we share of high relevance? Give a few people shout outs! Let's have a random chat.You were likely notified of this post... I normally don't share to any of my specific circles, so as to avoid sending out unwanted notifications... But since I have you and your attention here... HELLO! Have we talked before? Why do you think I have you circled? What's of relevance for you? (Besides people on G+) If we do know each other... Have we been in touch lately? If not, let's please catch up!2015-03-03 01:03:39455111

Please don't be upset if you were left out or if there are mistakes. It takes a lot of work to compile this and I will publish a new list and circle with corrections.Also please note that precise rankings are meaningless due to the standard error of measurement involved in Klout scores. Many thanks to +CircleCount for making this job considerably easier.I also want to thank +Amanda Blain for all her suggestions over the various months on how to improve this list.As always, I welcome your suggestions and corrections.Please let me know of any corrections for the final list to be published before the end of the year.If I missed you, please let me know. Upcoming circle – please let me know if you want to be included.Active on Google plus and Twitter – provide your twitter id   Social Media MadnessThere are other social networks out there besides Google plus.  While Google Plus is certainly my favourite, there are uses for the other ones.Include your twitter id in the comments to be included in a future circle of twitter users on Google plus.Tweet me @euromaestro to be included on a twitter list of Google plus users. Follow me on :twitter :  https://twitter.com/euromaestrofacebook : 2012-12-16 23:54:20209641039

Jason Wells13,970Top 100 Unverified (v1)on the cuspI've always been a little intrigued by the concept of a "verified user." Ostensibly to ensure the true identity of the person behind a profile, it also serves as a validation of notability, social success or even celebrity. At this point in time, almost 6900 Google+ users have the checkmark. And while Google verifies users according to their own criteria, everyone above a certain number of followers is verified. As it happens, right now that certain number is about 588,000.This is I believe a unique list: the top 100 people, ranked by follower count, that are at or below that line. In other words, the people who are just about to get on Google's verification radar. So it ranges from +Maria Popova, with roughly 588k followers, to +Matt Steiner, with about 39k.It's an interesting group of people, predominantly photographers or other visual artists. Some of them are quite good. There's a broad swathe of nationalities represented. Interestingly, most of them are people I haven't seen on G+ before, although there are a few familiar faces. What unites them all is that they're all very close to earning their checkmarks.As they get verified, people will fall out of this circle, so I expect to change often. So I'll reshare this circle periodically with the refreshed top 100 unchecked folks. I encourage you to reshare it too.(Props to +Chris Macidis, my technical collaborator.)2012-07-16 14:58:18100515
Kyle Beck66So, 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 00:28:364881003
Kimberly Iudakova24,679This is my first shared circle on Google+ I have been on here for almost a year at the end of June and wanted to give it a whirl.. I was inspired by Thomas Hawk and thought I would give it a try.. Now what you will find in here is a mixing pot of fun people depending on what you like..so dig around pick a few or bag the whole circle at once. *CAUTION* *ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK*  *>;)~*2012-06-13 07:22:1149810418
Euro Maestro20,504The Who's Who for Google+ - The top 500 Gplussers in the World - UpdatedHere’s the updated and corrected Euro Maestro 500 list for April For an explanation of how the list was put together, see the original post.https://plus.google.com/107040353898400532534/posts/JtmZFHiJf2xYou can find the complete list on circlecount.com, one of my favorite sites.What’s new :1. Klout scores are updated and reflect the score as of Friday 27 April2. A few people were accidentally left out of the first circle including +Liz ℚuilty +Michael Q Todd +Pam Adger and +Aaron Wood – apologies to all3. Expanded list4. Change from previous score (12 April)I will update this list weekly and publish it once a month. This is the list for April and any other changes I will incorporate in the list for May. Your suggestions as always are most welcome. If you want the weekly list, just let me know. Many thanks to +Amanda Blain for pointing out some corrections. The circle includes everyone with a Klout score higher than 75 plus selected other users from this list that offer great content or honest intelligent discussion to bring it up to a round 200. Excluded from the circle are those that have not posted recently on Google+. I have left room in the circle for the people that may have been missed in this second draft. At the bottom, you will find those who have more than 50 000 followers and an unknown klout score.

Scott Ayres6,421Saw +Robert Scoble share this circle earlier. Full of bloggers, tech oriented people and etc. All are great Gplusers and will add a ton of value to your stream.2012-04-11 20:35:35500011
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 16:01:035005137103
Angelocracy Xue2,184News Circle- news companies and journalists,reporters.tech,business, entertainment and other news. +NTD Television should also be in this circle.I shared a circle last Sunday. I was going to do one this Sunday but I forgot about it. I will try to post a new circle or updated circle every Sunday.Next I want to do a circle of bloggers. So if you are a blogger let me know. Also if you want to be added to this news circle or know someone who should be let me know. #sharedcircles #publiccircles #circlesundays +Shared Circles on G+ +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Public Circles +CircleCount +Angelocracy News and Politics2012-03-12 12:09:39341072
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 15:46:5631329719
Robert Scoble700,661Yes, it's a ghost town of TECH INDUSTRY JOURNALISTS AND BLOGGERS. Pay no attention to anyone from the Wall Street Journal who snuck onto this circle. Yes, this is 500 people, but they are almost all active.2012-02-28 03:05:115004934100
Lambert Schlumpf874Circle Shareee!The Interactive CircleI modified a bit the circle shared by +Max Huijgen yesterday afternoon (GMT): few people have been removed because their posts attract thousands of comments and you wouldn't get replies anyway. Plus, I am sure you have already in your circles people like +Trey Ratcliff, +Tom Anderson or +Mike Elgan.I added instead few others who I reckon are more interactive, In the meaning that if you post a direct comment to the author you are very likely going to receive a reply, which is always nice: They are people like +Christy Ramsey, +Paul van de Loo, +Clare Cosgrove, +Yvan Da Silva and others. Some of them are not very famous, but oh, well... they interact!

Max Huijgen13,212Out of the box into a circle: change your G+ world!The pegs and the holes, the ones who think different, the people who will change your G+ worldA careful selection on relevance, great posts, contributions to debate, original thought and stunning images. If you follow this circle of 200, G+ will never be boring and you are in for a stream of thoughts and beauty.The familiar faces show up, but it contains a large number of hidden gems if you dig deeper.As a circle needs a name: "Think different: the interaction circle" will do very well.Update: The most interesting part is that the circle is part of some experiments: one of them is the daily update. A way to ´subscribe´ to a circle by reading all the post at your leisure. Every day you will see the complete collection on this url:http://publiccircles.appspot.com/dailyplus/z12luh3hjsngtd04y04cetehsvf0x3nbtmc0kOn a dull Saturday this circle managed to create 780 posts and generate 7093 comments, 4842 reshares and 16074 +1's. Check it on a week day and that page will be living proof that G+ is not dead at all. This circle alone generates more posts and comments than you can possibly read on a day. Oh yes, that´s why it´s called the interaction circle ;)2012-02-24 22:38:5920015310285

"The power of social media to effect change remains limited in a society lacking political rights. A few officials have been fired after being caught on video behaving badly, but the country is still ruled by an absolute monarch, the 79-year-old King Salman. And powerful clerics run the justice system and oppose social change."

Not quite "freedom," then, on smartphones and social, but some space for free expression.

Hypothesis: If you organize a platform and publishing strategy around producing high-quality longform writing, you'll likely end up with visitors spending a lot of time reading, or passively consuming those pieces. If you're interested in encouraging more people to sign up, sign in and be actively engaged, the strategy is more likely to focus upon more publishing shorter, more interactive "content." http://www.buzzfeed.com/charliewarzel/whats-going-on-at-medium

Even if we're living in an increasingly on-demand world, you still have to be able to pay to play. On Thursday, New York Times columnist Farhad Manjoo questioned whether a new crop of startups providing on-demand services are ever going to make their products affordable enough to appeal to consumers outside of the top tax bracket. It's a worthy question, but in poking the tech industry for narrowly targeting the rich, Manjoo sets up a straw man.

Even if we're living in an increasingly on-demand world, you still have to be able to pay to play. On Thursday, New York Times columnist Farhad Manjoo questioned whether a new crop of startups providing on-demand services are ever going to make their products affordable enough to appeal to consumers outside of the top tax bracket. It's a worthy question, but in poking the tech industry for narrowly targeting the rich, Manjoo sets up a straw man. 
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/05/21/on-demand-startups_n_7354834.html

I have little doubt that many consumer-facing startups that have come out of the ferment in Silicon Valley over the last couple of years are "lifestyle apps." They're building apps that connects users to services, many of which closely resembles what a secretary, personal assistant, personal or maid might do. 

That trend has caused some commentators to refer dismissively to the category as "laundry apps." Those sorts of things are handy for people who want, need or most importantly can exchange their disposable income for time. Wealthy engineers or software executives can do that, along with other upper middle class folks, but many other citizens may not be able to do so on a regular basis. 

As I argue in my post, though, I don't think they're representative of the tech industry as a whole: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/05/21/on-demand-startups_n_7354834.html

Startups targeted at collaborative consumption of objects or services are positioned differently. Zipcar's model, for instance, lets people use cars when they need to do so, instead of owning them outright. 

There are at least two other relevant questions Manjoo did not explore in the column, from how cities should regulate these new markets for labor — who's liable if an on-demand worker hurts someone or damages property — and whether the such provide sufficient income for workers displaced from other industries. If wages for people working in a growing "on-demand" services economy remain stagnant, MIT research professorAndrew McAfee recommends</a> considering "negative income tax," a system in which the citizens of a country receive a supplemental payment if their income in a given pay period dips below a certain amount. http://blogs.ft.com/andrew-mcafee/2015/04/07/2223/

I doubt, however, that the current Congress is likely to have much appetite for that kind of tax reform any time soon.___

There's an inherent tension between being an "open platform" while also attempting to host and create programming specifically for young children.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/05/19/youtube-kids-app_n_7313542.html

No one I spoke to who is involved in the FTC complaint wants content on YouTube to be censored. Rather, they want an app that would never enable very young children to access violent or disturbing videos. The idea behind YouTube for Kids, where children stay within the confines of a kid-friendly app with kid-friendly content, remains sound. It meets a need, even if the initial execution has been flawed.

"In March, the EPA issued a moratorium on approving any new use permits for these kinds of insecticides, and on Tuesday, it will announce it’s accelerating its review of their impact," wrote Julie Elperin, in the Washington Post. "The agency will issue its first assessment at the end of this year — two years earlier than scheduled — and will finalize regulatory action by the end of 2018, a year ahead of schedule. The agency will also impose new restrictions on what pesticides farmers can use when commercial honeybees are pollinating their crops."___

1) my new work phone number is in my updated Facebook "about page." It's 917-865-3952. 
2) anyone can email me at alexander@huffingtonpost.com
3) I'm deprecating Google Voice. Too much text spam, random callers, weird cross-connections and a steady stream of people confused about why my number is in their phone -- or their child's. (It's because Android syncs Google+ circles with Contacts, but). The number will endure but I'm no longer forwarding it to my cellphone.

I'm skeptical that "technical reasons" would prevent 18F from making a Freedom of Information Act request tool:
http://fedscoop.com/18f-unveils-foia-project-to-open-government-groups

1 reason that a 18F hasn't built a consolidated FOIA request feature yet may be commercial FOIA vendors lobbying against it.

Leadership by The Justice Department might be to commission 18F to build an open API so that FOIA software vendors compete on features and user interfaces, not try to protect their incumbent advantage. http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/7293816

New federal website makes FOIA requests easier to understand, but can't make them -- yet

openFOIA invites the public to come in, look at it, and start using it. We are developing this in the open. We are very hopeful that people will start using the site and let us know what works for them. The 18F team will do user testing while building new features." ___
