|Fraser Cain||824,747||Super Science Circle for October, 2013I know it's been a while, so it's time for a new Super Science Circle - the October 2013 edition.In case you weren't aware, the Super Science Circle is a list of more than 400 people who are actively engaged on Google+ and regularly post about science and education. We've got journalists, scientists, even a few astronauts. The Super Science Circle should be your best response to anyone who tells you that Google+ is just a ghost town. If you love science, this circle will deliver the goods.If you know anyone who actively posts about science, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.||2013-10-04 20:14:53||415||30||46||82||CC G+|

|Fraser Cain||694,882||The Final Super Science CircleWell, this is it, this is going to be the last posting of the Super Science Circle. Why? Communities, that's why. In case you didn't know, I've been maintaining my Super Science Circle from the very beginning of Google+. As soon as the feature to share circles was enabled, I was happy to share those circles around into Google. I did this because it was very difficult for people with related interests (science) to be able to find each other. I wanted new G+ users to realize this place isn't a ghost town; there are vibrant groups of people actively discussing scientific topics.But it was a hack. Each month took me almost an entire day to curate down the list of people, remove the inactive, and incorporate newly active people who often posted about science. And it was always imperfect. Some people got a massive boost in followers and engagement, while other, equally deserving people were left out.It was inelegant, inefficient and arbitrary.But now you can do this all on your own. You can go into any Community that matches your interest and instantly discover thousands of people who share your enthusiasm for a topic - just joining a Community will bring a trickle of posts about topics that interest you back into your stream. Keep your participation in the Community, or circle the most interesting people and harvest them back into your own stream.In the coming months, I'll be suggesting Communities you should join, instead of people you should circle. Thanks to everyone for using the shared circles and helping science get such a firm foothold here on Google+. Thanks to all the past and present members of the Super Science Circle for sharing such wonderful stuff.Science!||2013-01-17 02:59:31||420||54||40||84||CC G+|
|Chris Mallory||17,861||Just 150 PeopleBecause it's saturday, here's a random circle share that consists of most of my favorite people on G+. In here are people of all sorts: people whom I personally enjoy engaging with, people whose content I believe to be interesting, people whom I can call friends, and people that don't know that I exist but make interesting posts anyway. It is certain that I've probably accidentally excluded some people - if so, my apologies! I've also purposefully excluded a handful of people such as real life friends, as well as +Miss M since she doesn't like being in my circles.

|Peter Smalley (Merkabah)||10,068||#sharedpubliccircles #science It's been a while since I shared a circle. Let's fix that, shall we? Here is my Circle of Science. Here you will find people who are practicing scientists, science writers, and science enthusiasts - and sometimes all three at once. There are biologists, chemists, physicists, microbiologists, food safety scientists, mathematicians, neurologists, astronomers and many other disciplines represented here. But regardless of their specialties they are intelligent, interested, and interesting.I won't call this a curated circle per se, but I can personally speak to quality of many of these individuals. Many of them are true gems.FOR SCIENCE!||2012-11-26 17:29:54||501||5||2||11||CC G+|
|Paul Christen||0||To the person that originally shared this circle with me (I forgot who...)Thank you.I am getting really tired of the glorification of stupid and the vilification of intelligence. I am afraid that its a systemic problem and frankly, I see no end in sight. Its similar to American politics in many ways."Well sure, professional athletes shouldn't rape women, but the dood can throw a football!" "Well, yeah, he ran a dog fighting ring, but let him play football and be a role model to children anyway."We had a President, that was re-elected, that on any scale was a buffoon at best.The list goes on, and lets not forget the other side of the proverbial coin, how often have we heard politicians talk about the "elite smart people"?Watch an episode or two of "Big Bang Theory". REALLY funny show, I refuse to watch it. I saw two episodes and both portrayed intelligence as negative.I heard an adult say (and I shit you not) "Kids don't need to learn what the mathematical median is, its useless knowledge, average is good enough." I tried to explain how it differs from average and how knowing the average and the median can help get a better view of the data (no point in going too deep) and got "nope, not needed".Whatever, I'm ranting and off the rails here.Do what you need to do to keep YOUR intelligence up and those around you, for the love of Xenu, fight the good fight. Following this circle might help.||2012-11-07 13:15:58||413||5||1||10||CC G+|

|Chris Mallory||16,845||G+ Survivor Follow-up: One Week LaterAKA, the circle share that is sure to piss everybody offOne week ago yesterday I thought up the idea of "G+ Survivor" - a "game" in which I put all my followers - all 1350 of them - into one circle, and then removed them one by one based on their content (OP: http://goo.gl/wXEiG). The goal was to help me discover new people I had buried in my circles that posted interesting, engaging content. At first it was easy, but as time went on it got considerably harder to eliminate people. Over the past week I've reviewed the posts of over a thousand people, and have come up with, somehow, the top hundred.Before getting into the circle itself, I must say that I learned more about myself in this process than I did about the people in my stream. I learned just what kind of content I found interesting. People that know me know that I am a lover of insects and insect photos, but I eliminated tons of people that post exclusively insect photos and few remain in this circle. Why? Because a photo alone is not engaging. Tell me something about the subject, propose a question, teach me something, share an opinion, get people thinking - these were the things that engaged me the most. Of the hundred people remaining, less than half of them are photographers.It also needs to be said that just because you are not in this circle it does not mean that I don't find your content interesting. Conversely, just because you are in this circle it doesn't mean that your content is interesting. I'm rather surprised, actually, some of the people that made it into this circle while others did not.Another reason you may not be in this circle is if you had any major period of inactivity over the past week. Every night I removed about 30 people simply from inactivity - it doesn't mean that your content was not interesting, just that I wish that you posted more of it.As an aside - if I were playing along, I would have eliminated myself ages ago. I know how (un)interesting I am ;) So I am (obviously) not in this circle.So, for the circle itself! 54 men and 46 women remain in the game. Photography and science are major themes of the remaining members, though neither of those genres holds a majority and there are a handful of remaining players who are involved in neither. Some of you may have remember two weeks ago I posted a circle containing "40 interesting people" (http://goo.gl/xHLwy) - but interestingly, only 20 of those people still remain in this contest. Additionally, I don't even know most of the people in this circle, and 20 people still in the game don't even have me in their circles. It is VERY possible that the winner of this game will have no idea who I am.So, enjoy. 100 interesting people. The game will keep going until 1 remains. Now's the time to bet on a winner ;)||2012-10-02 04:23:39||100||45||0||8||CC G+|

The Passion Trap
The first email I ever sent was to Stephen Hawking. I sent the email in the spring of 1998 when I was 16 years old from a computer at my high school (because I didn't have internet at home) using a friend's AOL account. I had just finished reading Hawking's...

Big data: What's it good for?

Nerd Nite East Bay is back from our short hibernation for our first show of 2014! We'll announce a new field trip opportunity at this show, which features three great talks. First, Nerd Nite San Francisco alum Bradley Voytek will guide you through how scientists properly (and, sometimes, improperly) leverage and present some of the vast amounts of data available. Then Chabot's Benjamin Burress will point us to where we might expect to find life off this planet. Finally, KQED's Lisa Aliferis will tell you what you need to know about Obamacare.
DJ Ion the Prize spins the tunes.
Rick and Rebecca will try to make sure you can register in advance...unlike. um. you know.
Doors at 7 pm, show at 8

Neuroscience thrives as a scientific melting pot with scientists joining from a huge diversity of fields: from physics to cell biology to philosophy; just as genetic diversity aids species survival and cultural diversity spurs innovation so too do the strides in neuroscience benefit from this.

But to say that finding the structure of a specific GPCR (CRF1), which is implicated in depression and anxiety, is "discovering the depression molecule" is like saying that, because some helicopters land on some skyscrapers, reconstructing a skyscraper's architecture tells you how helicopters fly.
