Alex Grossman56,667G+ Engagers CircleIt's been a while since I shared a circle, so here's a small circle of people I recommend following. They are great to engage with, full of energy and opinions and fun, with very little anger, disrespect, or poor manners. Hope you enjoy all of them as much as I do. They certainly make my time in G+ lots of fun. :)2013-08-22 03:31:187510711

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130

Dave Tozier0+Danial Hallock originally shared this post:The Three HundredRevised CopyIt's been about a month since my last share of #thethreehundred  so I wanted to share the revised copy of the circle; and true to my word, there have been a lot of revisions in the last month.For example, I've gone through each and every one of the 200 some odd recommendations and circle shares that came about from the last circle share.  As a result, of the original 297 that were shared a little under a month ago (http://goo.gl/xqGb4), I removed approximately 137 300ers and added 129 new members.  You can expect this circle to continue to change, but I think the triple digit adjustments are mostly done.  For those of you just joining us, this is a continuation of a project where I've been changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream?  Remember: #sharingiscaring  (Link to this post: http://goo.gl/cHwht)2012-11-20 17:22:28295000

Danial Hallock4,130The Three HundredRough DraftA few weeks ago I posted a rather lengthy post about how I was changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).  This is the first rough draft of that circle, minus a few ninjas that prefer not to be shared out.  As such, the landscape of this circle will change drastically over the next few months; but I wanted to give the people who are following this circle a glimpse of what to expect.  As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream? :D #thethreehundred   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring  2012-10-22 15:52:142971191078
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
Alex Grossman27,364It's TGIF so hope you have a great day. Here's a Circle I thought I'd share today for Follow Friday - Movie Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about movies, all kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, engaging with others, sharing and exchanging comments, please let me know and I can try and add you to this Circle (notification limits permitting).

Connie Willis turns down the Hugo MC position after Vox Day threatens to ensure nobody ever wins again.

❝ “You may have been able to cheat your way onto the ballot. (And don’t talk to me about how this isn’t against the rules–doing anything except nominating the works you personally liked best is cheating in my book.) You may even be able to bully and intimidate people into voting for you. But you can’t make me hand you the Hugo and say “Congratulations,” just as if you’d actually won it. And you can’t make me appear onstage and tell jokes and act like this year’s Hugo ceremony is business as usual and what you’ve done is okay. I’m not going to help you get away with this. I love the Hugo Awards too much.”

Connie Willis ❞

You too can turn a roach into a cyborg. That's disturbing. In quite a few ways.

RoboRoach

You can now make your own cyborg roach for just $100.   Just buy this kit developed by the company Backyard Brains:

Are you a teacher or parent that wants to teach a student about advanced neurotechnologies? You are in luck! After 3 long years of R&D, the RoboRoach is now ready for its grand release! We are excited to announce the world's first commercially available cyborg! With our RoboRoach you can briefly wirelessly control the left/right movement of a cockroach by microstimulation of the antenna nerves. The RoboRoach is a great way to learn about neural microstimulation, learning, and electronics!

We are recently ran a successfully-funded kickstarter campaign to fund the release of our new RoboRoach! The hardware and firmware development are complete and we are now shipping!

Product Details

The RoboRoach "backpack" weighs 4.4 grams with the battery, and each battery will last over a month! Following a brief surgery you perform on the cockroach to attach the silver electrodes to the antenna, you can attach the backpack to the roach and control its movement for a few minutes before the cockroach adapts. When you return the cockroach to its cage for ~20 minutes, he "forgets" and the stimulation works again. Once you receive your RoboRoach in the mail, follow our online surgery instructions and videos and you will soon be on your way to becoming an expert in neural interfaces. After about 2-7 days, the stimulation stops working altogether, so you can clip the wires and retire the cockroach to your breeder colony to spend the rest of its days making more cockroaches for you and eating your lettuce.

Technical Specs

1x Free iOS or Android 4.3+ application for remote control
1x Bluetooth Roboroach backpack control unit
1x 1632 RoboRoach Battery
3x Electrode Sets (to implant 3 Roaches)

View our RoboRoach Ethics Statement

Backyard Brains has developed ethical guidelines for all our products. You can read more in our statement regarding our use of insect for experiments at:

http://ethics.backyardbrains.com

I feel ethical qualms about taking away the autonomy of an animal this way, and their ethics statement doesn't really address that.  This is the closest they come:

Criticism: Modifying a living creature to make a toy is wrong.

The RoboRoach circuit is not a toy. This new bluetooth version is a powerful low-cost tool for studying neural circuits, allowing for students to make discoveries. High school students in New York, for example, have discovered random stimulation causes much slower adaptation times. We have scientist and high school educator colleagues who are mentoring students in novel behavioral experiments using the RoboRoach circuit. Some highlights will be posted on our website soon.

By focusing on the question of whether the RoboRoach is a "toy", they dodge the harder question of when it's okay to override the nervous system of an animal and make it do what you want.  Perhaps feeling a bit nervous about this, some of the cyborg roach developers say they want to use it as a "rescue robot" that can crawl around and hear people trapped under collapsed buildings.  I think most people would say this is okay, at least if it actually works.

If you want more details on how to actually build a RoboRoach, go here:

I'm curious about people's thoughts on this trade agreement. My liberal circles have been railing against it for a very long time as giving corporations too much power over governments. My thought was that this was a cross-aisle issue, so I was rather surprised when Congress agreed to give Obama fast track negotiation power on it.

The Cleveland transit cop who attacked a woman after she pulled out her phone to record his unprofessionalism last month, slamming her to the ground before pulling out a knife and cutting her purse strap, forcing her pants and underwear down as he planted her face into the ground, then throwing her in jail overnight, was informed by his chief he had violated several departmental policies.

This is not enough. The officer should be brought up on assault charges.

❝ Liss-Riordan has filed lawsuits against Uber, Lyft, Homejoy, Postmates, and Try Caviar—five of the largest on-demand start-ups in the world.

But as Liss-Riordan looked more closely at Uber’s business model, she realized there was a much larger legal problem looming: namely, the company was built on the backs of so-called “1099 employees”—drivers who formed the base of Uber’s operations, but whose income was counted as 1099 freelancer income for tax purposes. Uber claimed these drivers were fully independent and had control over their own work schedules — even making a point of calling them “driver-partners” instead of simply “drivers” — but the company also gave them strict guidelines for participation which made them look like employees according to the IRS’s 20-prong test. Uber screened and trained its drivers, and drivers could get deactivated by Uber for having their rating dip below what local managers set as a cut-off, for not accepting a certain percentage of trip requests, or for customer complaints. In one case, says Liss-Riordan, a driver was fired for “not showing respect” to Uber staff.

Liss-Riordan smelled blood. She realized that if Uber’s drivers were reclassified as normal W-2 employees, rather than 1099 independent contractors, Uber would be required to pay payroll taxes for them, and provide them with benefits like workers’ compensation insurance and unemployment. In some states, such as California, Uber would also be required to reimburse drivers for the costs of the job, including gas, wear-and-tear on their cars, and car insurance. If Uber had indeed misclassified its drivers, the company’s entire business model was built on a legal mistake. ❞

"40 as of a couple of days ago."

"I was just counting the project I'm currently working on."
"Maybe 80."

If Looks Could Kill (Election 2016 Edition)

Because this is a direct corollary to why the number of male actors in the 50s and 60s and 70s with significant roles in any given year dwarfs the number of female actors of that same age. It's directly related to why Fox News (not the only example, but a noteworthy one) has a wide array of guys -- tall, short, skinny, fat, young, old, handsome, ugly -- but their female talking heads look like a cloning accident at the Barbie factory.

Did anyone comment on Ronald Reagan's looks?  How about George H W Bush?  Or his son? Or, heck, his other son. People might make fun of John Boehner's orange complexion, or Mitch McConnell's turtle-like qualities, or Harry Reid's serious wizendtude, but nobody honestly goes on at end to suggest that they're so ugly that they couldn't possibly win an election and, y'know, you wouldn't want them to because they're so ugly.

Hillary Clinton, though?  Michael Savage may be the most blunt, but the same comments have been bandied about her in non-stop quips since she announced.

The only person I can think of who has gotten even close to the level of name-calling over appearance in this context is Chris Christie, who's the target of waaaaaay too many fat jokes for anyone in America to be comfortable over -- and at the very least one can make a lame suggestion that there are potential health issues as to his weight in the context of his being president as a reason not to vote for him because he's so fat.

Savage makes it very clear that, with very few exceptions, men are treated very differently in their appearance as they age from how women are treated. For men, they become distinguished and show their experience in life and so earn respect as seniors. Women just get ugly and should get the hell of that TV screen.  

(One might ask whether anyone want to look at this mug for eight years, either: http://www.ksgf.com/shows/145820455.html . Maybe that's why Savage is on the radio, not television.)

Here's hoping that this constant barrage of ugliness commentary against Clinton will backfire, big time.___

Evidence of Pre-Columbus Trade Found in Alaska House

It's hard to find plain words that convey just how bad the security of this machine is. It's even harder to fathom so many critical defects resided in a line of machines that has played a crucial role in the US' democratic system for so many years. Jeremy Epstein, a security expert specializing in e-voting, summarized the threat brilliantly in a post published Wednesday morning to the Freedom to Tinker blog. He wrote:
 
As one of my colleagues taught me, BLUF—Bottom Line Up Front. If an election was held using the AVS WinVote, and it wasn’t hacked, it was only because no one tried. The vulnerabilities were so severe, and so trivial to exploit, that anyone with even a modicum of training could have succeeded. They didn’t need to be in the polling place—within a few hundred feet (e.g., in the parking lot) is easy, and within a half mile with a rudimentary antenna built using a Pringles can. Further, there are no logs or other records that would indicate if such a thing ever happened, so if an election was hacked any time in the past, we will never know. ❞___

Connie Willis turns down the Hugo MC position after Vox Day threatens to ensure nobody ever wins again.

❝ “You may have been able to cheat your way onto the ballot. (And don’t talk to me about how this isn’t against the rules–doing anything except nominating the works you personally liked best is cheating in my book.) You may even be able to bully and intimidate people into voting for you. But you can’t make me hand you the Hugo and say “Congratulations,” just as if you’d actually won it. And you can’t make me appear onstage and tell jokes and act like this year’s Hugo ceremony is business as usual and what you’ve done is okay. I’m not going to help you get away with this. I love the Hugo Awards too much.”

Jill Sobule with her awesome singalong response to people who want to "take America back".

From the singer/songwriter of the original "I Kissed a Girl". If you get a chance to see her in concert, do. She's a lot of fun, and having the whole audience sing this song is a blast.

Protecting infrastructure secrets with Keywhiz

How do you keep track of all the passwords, TLS certificates, and other key pieces of security infrastructure in a distributed system with lots of different servers with different security requirements? This is an interesting piece of (openly available) software from Square for managing this using a simple (from the client perspective) virtual Unix file system service.
