Vago Damitio8,732Super Technology CircleI 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!This is a circle of super technology people.

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 : http://www.facebook.com/euro.maestro2012-12-16 23:54:20209641136CC G+

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 14:58:18100515CC G+
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 00:28:364881003CC G+
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 07:22:1149810418CC G+
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. Many thanks to +CircleCount and +Klout for all the assistance and a great service. ======================================================The Top 500 by Klout score 1 Lady Gaga 94 2 Kim Kardashian 91 13 Selena Gomez 90 4 Pete Cashmore 89 -14 Demi Lovato 89 7 Snoop Dogg 88 67 Cristiano Ronaldo 88 29 Trey Ratcliff 87 -110 Guy Kawasaki 86 110 Mark Hoppus 86 1010 Nicholas Kristof 86 13 Thomas Hawk 85 13 Ivete Sangalo 85 15 LeBron James 84 -215 François Hollande 84 317 deadmau5 83 -117 Chris Pirillo 83 17 David GUETTA 83 17 Mike Elgan 83 21 Felicia Day 82 -121 Tom Anderson 82 221 Paris Hilton 82 21 Victoria Justice 82 -121 Robert Scoble 82 -121 50 Cent 82 121 Chris Hardwick 82 121 Greyson Chance 82 221 Joe Penna 82 -430 Britney Spears 81 30 Dalai Lama 81 130 Soulja Boy 81 30 Amanda Blain 81 130 Deepak Chopra 81 130 Michael Q Todd 81 new32012-04-28 15:54:02200451038CC 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 16:01:035005737104CC G+

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 15:46:5631329919CC G+
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 03:05:115005538103CC G+
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! Here the original post, via +Max Huijgen Out of the box into a circle: change your G+ world!http://j.mp/z4s0ZH2012-02-26 09:21:182021508CC G+

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.

Gregory Esau87An enhanced version of my previously shared circle of "World Intelligence" . If there is anybody else that you feel should be on here... maybe even you!!...please let me know. This is what I call my "World Intelligence" Circle. The purpose of this circle is that collectively, they give us a enhanced understanding of the world...and this included our Google Plus World!!...we live in.Our collective goal is to build on this circle, to constantly improve the diversity of views, and depth of knowledge, so we can 'crowd source' better ways to both understand the world in which we operate, but in turn lead in this world, to make it a better place for all of us. This Circle falls roughly into six categories:1) Economics and Economic Systems2) The Internet and Social Technologies3) Politics and Global Politics4) Science and Technology5) Religions and Spirituality6) Environment and Ecological Systems. These all inter-relate in one way or another, and it has long been my view, to understand our world, we need to constantly learn, and collaboratively share our knowledge around these 'systems'. None of us individually can 'know' or 'understand' the world, but as a collaborative enterprise, we can develop better knowledge for better leadership.2011-12-11 00:07:392394212CC G+

Why movement politics are key complement to online activism in Washington

There's a much deeper backstory to why Internet activism worked this past week: the people behind the e-petition to make unlocking cellphones legal again didn't stop with a response from the White House. After making a lot of noise online, activists engaged Congress over a year and a half, visiting Capitol Hill, sitting in on phone calls and hearings, and being involved in the democratic process that led to this positive change.
http://e-pluribusunum.com/2014/07/25/congress-passes-bill-unlocking-cellphones-legal-whitehouse-epetitions/

When the U.S. House of Representatives passed S.517 today, voting to send the "Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act" that the U.S. Senate passed unanimously last week, the legislative branch completed an unprecedented democratic process: a bill that had in its genesis in a White House e-petition signed by more than 100,000 consumers was sent back to the White House for the President's signature. 
http://e-pluribusunum.com/2014/07/25/congress-passes-bill-unlocking-cellphones-legal-whitehouse-epetitions/
If signed into law, the bill would 1) make it legal for consumers to unlock their cellphones in January 2015, reversing a controversial decision made by the Librarian of Congress in 2013 by reinstating a 2010 rulemaking and 2) direct the Librarian to consider if other mobile devices, like tablets, should also be eligible to be unlocked.

AP: $300 million spent on a Social Security government IT fiasco, with no working system: http://bigstory.ap.org/article/social-security-spent-300m-it-boondoggle Primary contractor: Lockheed Martin.

Important note: this system is for filing disability claims. Getting digital government wrong hurts the poor.

I'll say again what I did last fall: "The sad truth is that unless we reform how government buys, builds, and maintains information technology, we will continue to get more Healthcare.govs. They'll be built at regulatory agencies, scientific agencies, or places like HUD or the Department of Education or nameless federal agencies that most people don't know exist, along with higher-profile ailing IT projects at the Department of State. Federal IT may be too big to succeed."... more »

Follow up on DC's open data order from +Joshua Tauberer,  who writes with considerable passion on this issue: "There is a strong American tradition — or at least a core American value — that the government does not get in the way of the dissemination of ideas. We don’t always live up to that ideal, but we strive for it. Access to information about the government that comes with restrictions on what we can say when we use it (e.g. attribution & explanation), a waiver of rights or a commitment to indemnify, etc. are all an anathema to accountability and transparency and respect for the public."

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau proposed a new policy to allow consumers to share stories of woes with financial companies:  http://e-pluribusunum.com/2014/07/16/cfpb-proposes-new-policy-to-allow-consumers-to-share-stories-of-woes-with-financial-companies/

While it may not be apparent at first glance, the collection and publication of these complaints would have an important, tacit effect upon the market for financial services. By collecting, structuring and releasing consumer complaints as data, the CFPB could add crucial business intelligence into the marketplace for these services. 

This isn’t a novel model: the Consumer Product Safety Commission already discloses a public complaint database at SaferProducts.gov, enabling merchants and services like Consumer Products to give people crucial information about their purchases. The SEC and FINRA would be well-advisedto ... more »

Efforts to experiment, measure and test the effectiveness of government programs and policies will benefit the public, regardless of ideology. We need to know what works, and what doesn't, and fund research that gathers evidence about it. Unfortunately, far too much public policy has been stymied because of effective lobbying to prevent studies, much less experiments, and toxic political polarization has made "failure" of any kind anathema to politicians, despite the long history of American inventors, scientists and engineers failing time and and time again before finding out what works. "Scientism" is a risk here, but measuring the success of taxpayer-funded programs should appeal to both people who believe in government and those who would shrink it.
