Fraser Cain779,548Super Science Circle - May 2013 EditionNeed more science in your Google+? Well, here's all the science you can handle! Enjoy my latest, heavily curated edition of the Super Science Circle.Please share this circle... for Science!For the uninitiated, I maintain a circle of 450+ people who are active on Google+ and regularly post on Google+. In this circle you'll find scientists, journalists, astronauts, educators, and science enthusiasts. By importing this circle into your own circles, you'll immediately gain a vibrant and fascinating feed of amazing science stories.I recognize that it might be too much science, so I suggest you create a brand new temporary circle and evaluate the people in the circle. Only transfer the keepers to your permanent circles. Then, when I update the circle next month, rinse and repeat.Are you active on G+ and regularly post about science? +mention me and I'll check out your profile.Remember, please share this post2013-05-22 19:26:51456348390CC G+

FOR SCIENCE!I have personally reviewed each and every person on this list, to make sure that they:1. Are active and engaged on Google+2. Regularly post science-related stories on Google+In this list you'll find scientists, journalists, researchers, professors, astronauts and general science enthusiasts. Not everyone in this list is going to be to your personal liking.

Then move people over one by one into more permanent locations in your circles.I'm always looking for more people to add to the list, so if you know people who meet my criteria, feel free to nominate them.Again, please share the circle.

Fraser Cain759,117The Return of the Super Science CircleOkay, I'll admit, I made a mistake in retiring the Super Science Circle. I wasn't wrong; Communities are still the future and the best way to make friends here on Google+. But I realized that the Super Science Circle is simple and efficient way to get new people to see that Google+ isn't a ghost town.PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... FOR SCIENCE!When I was attending +ScienceOnline 2013, I must have helped dozens of people join Google+, and the first thing I had them do was import this circle. It's an invaluable tool for getting new people up to speed.So, I just did a complete refresh on the circle. I examined every single member and judged them according to my two-part criteria:1. Active in the last 30 days or so.2. Regularly post on scientific topics.If you know anyone who might make a good candidate for this circle, please let me know.As always, import this circle into a new, temporary circle, and then you can refresh it when I share a new version.DON'T FORGET TO SHARE THIS POST2013-03-19 22:39:3139967163160CC G+

Fraser Cain694,882The 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 02:59:31420544084CC G+

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 17:29:545015211CC G+
Paul Christen0To 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 13:15:584135110CC G+

Meilani MacDonald6,228Public Speakers and ToastmastersRecently, +Kate Manser  shared her circle of Public Speakers.  I added my small circle of Toastmasters, and promised to share the results, and here they are!If anyone would like to have the Toastmasters separated out, send me a request and I'll be happy to share my TM circle.  It only has 12 people in it I think.  Anyone who is in this public speaking circle, if you are also a Toastmaster and would like to be included in my Toastmaster circle, please leave a comment below. I would like to grow the Toastmasters circle, connect with more of you and perhaps integrate Hangouts into our toastmaster activities.  For example, if you need a couple more speeches to get that coveted designation, and would like to try a different venue, how about doing it via a Hangout!  Or if you want to practice a speech and get feedback from other Toastmasters we can hold a speech giving and evaluating hangout.  Sounds like fun doesn't it!2012-09-24 22:20:50169604CC G+

The current crop of smart watches are all making the same mistake. Like this (entirely fictitious) smart watch from the early 80's the graced the cover of Byte magazine, manufacturers today are taking todays dominant computing paradigm—the smart phone—and shrinking it down to fit on your wrist.

That's just as wrong from a UX perspective as taking a early 80's computer terminal and shrinking it down to fit on your wrist. Neither interface survives intact, admittedly the smart phone does better, but still not good enough.

The first breakthrough smart watch product—if there is every such a thing—will be like the iPhone. It'll be a total departure from the current interface paradigm, and that's what'll make it a success.

I interview +Laura Kassovic about the new #MetaWear  board for +MAKE Magazine. We talk about their +Kickstarter and the unusual philosophy behind the board—it's a micro-controller board which is aimed squarely at app developers rather than people that play with micro-controller boards.

I'm sitting looking at the new +Raspberry Pi compute module wondering whether I should do a +Kickstarter to build a 1U blade server for them. Looks like they take around 200mA a board, should be entirely doable to cram 50 or more (100? which is the minimum order quantity) of them into a 1U enclosure. The complicated bit would be the networking…

Today's release—code named "Pecan Waffle"—includes initial support for voice control of +The Thing System steward.

To show off the feature we've gone ahead and modified the example d3 client to allow the automatic generation of configuration files for Tasker, on Android, and Vocalia, on iOS. You can now generate configuration customised to support your things, directly from the d3 client.

If you’ve used Tasker or Vocalia before you might be able to guess how to take the configuration files and put them to use. For those that haven’t we’re hoping to get full documentation, including a walk through video, to you later in the week.

You can access the new voice configuration screen using the microphone icon directly underneath the settings cogwheel in the main d3 interface.

Enjoy!

An insightful post by +Rachel Andrew about the widening gulf between the great and the good—the "thought leaders" of our industry—and those working day-to-day in the trenches.

As someone that spends a lot of time on the road, and talking at conferences, I have to admit Rachel has probably pegged this one. A lot of the stuff we talk about amongst ourselves takes years—if it ever does—to filter down, and I'm often surprised by a seemingly sudden flare up of interest around a piece of technology that I view as being "over" and not very interesting any more. That technology which I looked at, talked about, and have now long since discarded has only just gone mainstream…

If you backed #Neurio—the smart home energy monitor—on #Kickstarter, you might want to take a look at their latest poll. They're trying to decide which 3rd party technologies to integrate, and +The Thing System is on the list.

Vote early, and vote often!

Really impressed by the design of the new #Motorola #SmartWatch, http://www.technologyreview.com/view/525656/motorolas-smart-watch-looks-pretty-sweet/. It's the first #SmartWatch  that actually looks like a watch.

What I find really startling however is the similarity between the new #Moto360  and the recent concept designs from Gábor Balogh, http://www.theverge.com/2014/3/7/5477768/gabor-balogh-circular-smartwatch-concept.

Really pleased to announce the February release of +The Thing System, which for logistical reasons actually went live yesterday—the 1st of March—and is tagged in +GitHub  as release 1.5 and code-named "Ground Hog."

This is another big update, and this month we're concentrating on thing support. Notable additions include support for the Lockitron (smart lock), Notify My Android ("Res ipsa loquitur"), Chipolo and dweet.io (which is ridiculously simple data sharing for the Internet of Things). However there are also numerous other enhancements and bug fixes, a lot of them based on feedback from all of you (thanks for that!).

Implementation of support for Automatic (smart vehicle) and LIFX (smart bulb) didn’t make it into this release. We’re expect that to be finished up in next couple of weeks, so keep an eye on our GitHub repository if that’s toimportant ... more »

Facial recognition for +Google Glass. I'm actually pretty surprised about how long it's taken for someone to come up with this… 

Despite +Google saying that they won't allow it in the  Play Store, "…won’t add facial recognition features to our products without having strong privacy protections in place. With that in mind, we won’t be approving any facial recognition #Glassware at this time." Now the #GDK  is out in the open it was only a matter of time.
