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

Alex Grossman27,422Last time I shared a relevancy circle was back in July. From then until now (October 19), it's only changed by 7 people, and most but not all of that was near the end of the list. So, it's remarkably consistent.These 99 users are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself, so a total of 100). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is definitely more accurate now than last time. Does the algorithm get better over time due to more data? I still suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd still be curious and interested to learn more about it.Anyway, these people are relevant to me and truly help me enjoy my time sharing, talking, discussing, and hanging out on G+. So, thank you to all of you :)TGIF and have a great start to the weekend!P.S. - Typical inconsistent G+ - I could share the Movie Lovers Circle earlier today with about 130 people being notified. However, by mid-morning I couldn't notify the 99 people in this Circle. Now, I can again. But it appears that instead of setting a limit on the number of people in a circle, maybe they've set a limit on the number of people you could notify in a set period of time? Very strange. If anybody has any clue as to why this is, please let me know.2012-10-20 03:24:2710023124
AJ Durling294This is a bonus circle, and is actually pretty much where I started when I was creating my first circles - Top 500 PlussersIt is the people with the highest number of users - and is actually now only 308 people. When I first collected the Top 500 Plussers on Google+, I spend a lot of time weeding out the people whose posts in which I didn't particularly have an interest (e.g. almost all of the photographers - nothing against people who post photos to G+, it's just me: this is Google+, not Flickr; people who only ever promote themselves - so quite a lot of the pop musicians). The list that is left are people who, I think, actually contribute to the stream. You may find some surprising choices (Dolly Parton?! Actually, yes!). But I hope you enjoy it.I've kept the name Top 500 even though it is a lot fewer than 500. I like the irony... #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #celebrity   #topcircles  2012-10-19 15:06:56307302

If the FCC lets Big Entertainment get special treatment from ISPs, the net neutrality rules are just about meaningless.

Looking for router suggestions

A firmware update to my ASUS RT-N66U just bricked the thing -- it's totally borked, and not (as the ASUS website suggests) in "recovery" mode.

So I'm looking for a suggestion of a router from a company that a) takes security seriously; and b) offers quality. I may end up buying something and reflashing it myself. But I need to get back online fairly quickly.

Linux gurus:

I'm puzzled by something that's occurred with my email. I installed GNUPG 2 after Thunderbird warned me that it was no longer going to support GNUPG 1, and since then I've had weird issues -- namely that saving to drafts no longer works, and I get a weird error message: "INV_RECP 10 0xFAB623CD".

If anyone has the slightest idea what this means, I'd be grateful for tips.

(Also, is it possible to uninstall the earlier GNUPG?)

The explosion of "top level domains" -- TLDs -- has led to a totally outrageous but equally predictable result: honorable brands feel obliged, in some cases, to buy expensive domains just to protect themselves from trolls, squatters and malefactors.

Here's a perfect example.

ICANN, which made this happen, is raking in cash along with the operators who are selling domains no one needs.

Well, so much for the 3.16 kernel in Ubuntu 14.04.2. After a couple of mostly trouble-free days I had my first hard freeze -- so I guess it's somewhat more stable on my ThinkPad T440s than Ubuntu 14.10 was (a horror show) but still not what I need.

Have deleted it and reverted back to the 3.13 kernel, with some regret, since I still have to use my wi-fi dongle (the Realtek radio doesn't get supported before 3.16).

Even one freeze a week is too much of a hassle for me, since these things always happen at times that cause me to lose work in progress.

With trepidation, just installed the 3.16 kernel in Ubuntu 14.04.2. I prefer 3.16 because it supports the wi-fi card inside my T440s, which earlier kernels didn't support (I've been using a wi-fi USB dongle in the meantime).

The 3.16 kernel was in 14.10, which was horrible on my machine -- frequent freezes and crashes. So I rolled it back to 14.04 and resumed using the dongle, and haven't had a system crash since.

Hoping I get the best of both worlds now...and my plan is to stay with LTS versions generally.

Looking for camcorder advice

Buying a new camcorder:. HD (720 ok but prefer 1080) obviously. Also vital: needs to be as small as possible; mic input, headphone jack. Strongly prefer optical zoom. Idealy also with optical stabilization and good pictures in lower light.

Ideas?

UPDATE: I've pretty much decided on this: Canon VIXIA HF R600, as the best combination of features and price.

As Apple insiders go more and more public about how much they hated Walter Isaacson's book about Steve Jobs because (they think) it wasn't positive enough -- it was a love letter, in my opinion, though not a great book -- a new film is showing Jobs' less-attractive side more clearly.

I'm thinking about doing a book myself, from a skeptic's point of view. I recognize Jobs' brilliance and drive. But this is also a guy who, among many other not-so-admirable things, led a conspiracy against his (and other tech companies') best people, in which companies agreed not to poach each others' employees.

What I won't have is the hours and hours of interviews that Isaacson and others got with Jobs. Apple made it clear to me in the 1990s that I would get an interview with the boss approximately one month after hell froze over. I can only speculate about why, but... more »

That was pretty good prediction in 1926. Tesla saw it coming.

"When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is, all things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole.  We shall be able to communicate with one another instantly, irrespective of distance.  Not only this, but through television and telephony we shall see and hear one another as perfectly as though we were face to face, despite intervening distances of thousands of miles; and the instruments through which we shall be able to do his will be amazingly simple compared with our present telephone.  A man will be able to carry one in his vest pocket."

Hi, folks! I've launched a modest Kickstarter with two goals: the first, which is what's being funded, is to make a huge ebook of all the stories we commissioned in The Magazine: for curious people: about 300 stories comprising over 500,000 words!

The secondary goal is to use any funds over our production needs to start commissioning new work for a publication tentatively titled Old & New. It'll be about vintage technology (farm, home, videogames, pinball, etc.) — anything that isn't commercially manufactured at scale anymore, but people preserve and extend. It'll be about the tech and people who love it.

Old & New will start small with a blog and podcast, and I'm planning to start commissioning short non-fiction work, too, and then ramp up into a monthly electronic issue schedule with quarterly print editions and a yearly book.
