Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117

Matthew J Price4,908Here it is again, my Accelerated Thinkers circle.  These futurists, authors, transhumanists, nerds, experts, pages, and all around thought leaders account for the vast majority of the good news I receive from G+.  Whatever I share that I didn't find in my RSS feed came from these ladies and gentlemen.If you followed nothing but these 70 people, you would have a pretty solid idea of what sort of craziness is coming down the pipe.I owe them a great debt for the thoughtfulness of their content curation and the added value of their voices. Thank you!I no longer spend any meaningful amount of time searching for new people to add to this circle.  If you know someone that belongs here please leave a comment nominating them (or yourself) or send me a message.  If you know someone with educated opinions about the future who posts future relevant thoughts and news the majority of the time, that's what this circle is about. #ScienceSunday   #Transhumanism   #Futurism   #AcceleratedChange  2012-10-22 00:32:2970317

The Nakasendo is an old road in Japan that connects Kyoto to Tokyo. It was once a major foot highway, but today small sections retain some of its historical feel. In October I walked along 5 short sections of it, staying at traditional inns along the way. My guide was +Craig Mod who is fluent in Japanese, his ease with the language made the trip possible. And he is a great travel companion (he took the picture of me in the onsen). The Nakasendo is full of history and many artists and poets over the centuries have travelled along it, including Basho, the haiku genius. We met a lot of characters, too, and thoroughly enjoyed the exquisite details that make up this country.

Wikipedia is the defining icon of the digital age. But it does not work the way most people think it does. This article and the book it is based on provides a glimpse into its actual bureaucratic organization.

The other side of Japan is full-tilt modern, and at times, overloaded with color. The Japanese also love uniforms; every role has a uniform. I tried to capture some of the uniforms on the streets and trains, especially the cosplay uniforms in Harajuku, Tokyo. I found maximum color in Japanese shows on TV, in their vending machines, and at a crazy, bonkers, over-the-top show in Tokyo called the Robot Restaurant. Turn up that color dial to 11 !

This is one of the better talks on coming disruptions in the next ten years. Making big broad predictions as Fred Wilson does is very hard to do well. (I know because I try to do this myself.) I really like Fred's framework, which I agree with 100%. His comments at the end are probably the most interesting, because they are not so obvious.  His talk was done almost a year ago, which is even more impressive.

I just returned from my first trip to Vietnam. My wife Giamin and I spent a week there (I spent some extra days) exploring the north of this populous country. There is a lot to see, but be warned that, as usual, these images do not represent the country. My photos are romantic, stereotyped and biased; most of the country is a vast construction site as the Vietnamese modernize. But my mission is to capture the last remnants of fast disappearing traditions, and so with that caveat I present this selection. Enjoy.

Here's a direct link to my Wired article about the coming reality of artificial intelligence, or as I like to call it, artificial smartness. I make the case that AI (AS) will be a cloud service; you'll buy as much IQ as you want. And that since it will be a cloud service, AI will obey network effects, meaning we'll have only 2 or 3 very large AI companies.  More details here:

Portland is so hip, they almost did not invite me. But at the recent XOXO conference in Portland, I talked about the common dilemmas that face creators, and how I have dealt with them in 50 years of making stuff. After a quick recap of my creative journey, I get to a 1,000 true fans, and making new definitions of success. It's different than most talks I do. A little more personal, and a lot more artistic. And, yes, I talk about the Cool Tools book --- which you really should have!

I've been talking about mesh networks for  two decades, and finally one is beginning to develop around smart phones. Besides their use by dissenters, a phone-based mesh network would be useful in the event of the collapse of the cell phone network or internet blackout.

Mesh Networks Resist Centralized Control...

Hong Kong pro-democracy protestors are using bluetooth mesh networks to communicate, bypassing cellular networks and Wi-Fi. That means there is no single point of control; no single point of failure. This is what makes mesh architectures difficult to suppress -- and why they are the future of democratic communications.     #MeshNetworks    #democracy  ___I've been talking about mesh networks for  two decades, and finally one is beginning to develop around smart phones.

The manual of civilization is a unique library, which is housed in a cool salon space. The idea of the library is to have a set of books that one could use as a core rebooting engine. Say you want restart things after a dark age. It could use some "applause" if you also, like me, think it is a good idea.

Computational X is the recipe for much of the future. Take a subject and then computationalize it. One of the most difficult areas to have machines do is pure mathematics. Steven Wolfram outlines a plan whereby he thinks we can computationalize pure math. His proposal is long but readable even to non-mathematicians. His plan is based on his own Mathematica and Woflram Alpha and will work if he open sources it. In any case this is a good read of a grand idea.

Critical part of this report:

In an amazing coincidence, police departments in a handful of U.S. cities have been operating "Stingray" or "Hailstorm" towers, which — you guessed it — conduct surveillance on mobile phone activity. They do that by jamming mobile phone signals, forcing phones to drop down from 4G and 3G network bands to the older, more insecure 2G band.

Seventeen Fake Cell Phone Towers Discovered

Illicit cell towers vary widely in expense and sophistication – but in a nutshell, they're radio-equipped computers.  Whether your phone uses Android or iOS, it also has a second operating system that runs on a part of the phone called a baseband processor.  The baseband processor functions as a communications middleman between the phone’s main O.S. and the cell towers, and it's your phone's baseband processor that these fake cell towers target:___Critical part of this report:

Are those real robots? Nope, but you want them to be. This short clip by Kevin Margo (THOR) is awesome for several reasons. One is that I believe the animation was rendered in real time on a VFX accelerated by NVIDIA's VCA hardware. The other is the fantastic emotion and even morality embedded in the machines,and third is the pitch-perfect simulation.  Enjoy!

Why a "cloudbook" is better than an iPad in schools. Insightful article in the Atalantic. Excerpt:

"And as much as students liked to annotate and read on the iPad, the Chromebook's keyboard was a greater perk — especially since the new Common Core online testing will require a keyboard.

Another important finding came from the technology support department: It was far easier to manage almost 200 Chromebooks than the same number of iPads. Since all the Chromebook files live in an online “cloud,” students could be up and running in seconds on a new device if their machine broke. And apps could be pushed to all of the devices with just a few mouse clicks.

There are 2 reasons this great Quantified Self experiment is so great. One, it shows how important your microbial ecosystem is. Two, it shows how significant DAILY genome sequencing will be.

Ten years ago I co-founded an initiative to find and catalog all the remaining undiscovered species on Earth. One component of that process was an idea of E. O. Wilson to conduct local bio-blitzes, like the one conducted this year in the Gold Gate Recreation Area. A team of biologists will intensely inspect a small area to map all species they find in a day or so. They did not discover any new-to-science species, but did discover  many species they didn't know were local -- a common result of a bioblitz. http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2014/05/07/san-franciscos-parks-scoured-in-wildlife-inventory/

Technoliteracy
I wrote up some essential skills for tomorrow. What am I missing?

• Anything you buy, you must maintain. A purchase is just the beginning.  You can expect to devote as much money/time in maintaining a technology as you did in acquiring and installing it.
• Acquire at the last possible moment. Technologies improve so fast you should postpone getting anything until 5 minutes before you need it. Then accept the fact that anything you buy is already obsolete.
• You will be newbie forever. Get good at the beginner mode: learning new programs, asking dumb questions, making stupid mistakes, soliciting help. 
• Often learning a new tool requires unlearning old ones. The habits of using a land line phone don't work in email or cell phone. The habits of email don't work in twitter. The habits of twitter won't work in what is next. Try to leavethe old h... more »

Technoliteracy
I wrote up some essential skills for tomorrow. What am I missing?

• Anything you buy, you must maintain. A purchase is just the beginning.  You can expect to devote as much money/time in maintaining a technology as you did in acquiring and installing it.
• Acquire at the last possible moment. Technologies improve so fast you should postpone getting anything until 5 minutes before you need it. Then accept the fact that anything you buy is already obsolete.
• You will be newbie forever. Get good at the beginner mode: learning new programs, asking dumb questions, making stupid mistakes, soliciting help. 
• Often learning a new tool requires unlearning old ones. The habits of using a land line phone don't work in email or cell phone. The habits of email don't work in twitter. The habits of twitter won't work in what is next. Try to leave the old habits behind when venturing to new forms.
• Take sabbaticals. Once a week let go of your tools. Once a year take a break from the whole system gracefully. Once in your life step back completely and turn everything off until your soul says to turn it back on. You'll return with renewed enthusiasm and perspective.
• Keep it easy to switch. You will leave the tool you are using today at some time in the near future. How easy will it be to leave? If leaving forces you to leave all your data behind, or to learn a new way of typing, or to surrender four other technologies you were still using, then maybe this is not the best one to start.

• Quality is not always related to price. Sometimes expensive gear is better, sometimes the least expensive is best for you. Most folks don’t ever use the premium features they paid for. And 95% of most tools are abandonded before they wear out. Quality is related to your personal use.
• For every expert opinion that you find online, seek out an equal but opposite expert opinion somewhere else. Don’t rely on  raves only.  If you have not heard any negatives, you have not yet found all the opinions.
• You don’t need to understand the mechanics of a new technology before you start using it.  The best way to understand it is to use it.
• Tools are metaphors that shape how you think. What embedded assumptions does the new tool make? Does it assume right-handedness, or literacy, or a password, or a place to throw it away? Where the defaults are set can reflect a tool's bias. You should ask yourself what does this technology assume?
• What other thing do you give up? This one has taken me a long time to learn. The only way to take up a new technology is to reduce an old one in my life already. Social media, for instance, must come at the expense of something else I was doing -- even if it just daydreaming.
• Every new technology will bite back. The more powerful its gifts, the more powerfully it can be abused. Look for its costs.
• Risks are relative. The risks of a new technology can’t be evaluation alone; they must be compared to the risks of the older technology, or no technology. For instance the risks of a new dental MRI must be compared to the risks of an old x-ray, or to the risks of no x-ray and getting cavities. The costs of the new must be compared to costs of the old. 
• Be suspicious of any technology that requires walls to prevent access. If you can’t fix it, modify it or hack it yourself, that is a  sign.
* Teaching others what you learn (like posting solutions to things you figured out) is the best way to keep learning about a technology yourself.
• The proper response to a stupid technology is not to outlaw it but to make a better one yourself, just as the proper response to a stupid idea is not to outlaw it but to replace it with a better idea.
• Nobody has any idea of what a new invention will really be good for, including its inventors. You can’t evaluate new things by merely thinking about them. To evaluate, try it, then think.
• The second order effects of technology usually only arrive when everyone has one, or it is present everywhere. Drones are cool, but what if everyone has one hovering over their shoulder?
• The older the technology, the more likely it will continue to be useful. It may need to find a more limited new job, but don’t dismiss it. Some of the best new things are old things re-imagined.
• Find the minimum amount of technology that will maximize your options.___
