Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432633258CC G+

Jean-Marc Luna35,467Learning with friendsCircle of thanksIt is time for me to apply for my small business all what I've learned here in recent months.By sharing this circle, I want to thank those with whom I have gained a better knowledge of best practices of the Internet and information, particularly about G+ which represents now (and tomorrow) an enormous part of the Web dynamics.I named this circle "Learning with friends" because it sums up for me a big part of that is Google+.1- Learning, because these people have given me valuable assistance by sharing their knowledge and their information and they have convinced me by their active presence of the importance of spending time on G+, of learn more and always consider the long term.2- Friends, because they do it with generosity, not against party, in a spirit of exchange and mutual enrichment, as friends do.The common vector is that I always read their posts carefully.I communicate regularly with some, I just "plus" with others (often because my bad english keeps me better participate) to mark my interest and I discovered regularly (often in comments) new people who all publish / share high quality stuff.Thank you +martin shervington, +Denis Labelle, +Dustin W.

Stephan Hovnanian27,240Conversation Hosts on Google+Circle number 2 that I talked about in my latest ebook on managing your Google+ circles (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IU1JXUY) is a way for newer users to include activity in their stream that consistently has value and discussion. In other words, these people continually debunk the ghost-town myth, and are very welcoming to newcomers on the platform. I'm sending my audience your way. Take good care of them.Pick up a copy of Google+ Pro Tips: Managing your Google+ Circles now: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IU1JXUY (you do not need a Kindle device to read kindle ebooks, just a free reader app available on iOS, Android, and desktop).  #googleplus   #stephanhovprotip   #stephanhovnanian  2014-03-06 22:55:17347417CC G+

Spread the love! Missed last week's share?

Markos Giannopoulos13,655Engagers VI: Christmas edition // It's a festive season so my monthly "round-up & thank you" circle is on the right mood!First some stats on people who engaged me (gathered via +Circloscope) and on my posts (tracked by +CircleCount):September: 620 plussers, 93 commentators and 86 sharers on 32 posts for a total of 745 +1s, 74 re-shares and 117 comments October: 395 plussers, 33 commentators and 39 sharers on 43 posts for a total of 1057 +1s, 80 re-shares and 165 comments November: 616 plussers, 114 commentators and 176 sharers on 32 posts for a total of 1109 +1s, 234 re-shares and 227 commentsA great month fuelled by two posts: 6+1 WordPress initial-setup plugins  (http://bit.ly/1bKXVgX 359 +1s, 59 comments, 183 re-shares) and Ode à Eiffel (http://bit.ly/1heptNZ 46 +1s, 4 comments, 5 re-shares). If I wanted to get "analytical" about it, it was two posts with some decent value (helpful list of plugins in one case on a every-day issue for a WordPress developer and an album of 18 original photos of night Paris on the other) :) So on to the circle: the formula for this month is - Plussers who are on over 3 engagers circles (so basically who have engaged with me in previous months as well this one)  - Sharers and commentators - A few kind highly-engaging people who have shared original circles including me. - People with over 300 in G+'s "relevance score" (as reported by +Circloscope), e.g. the people Google considers that I interact more and post similar content to mine (or of my interest)All in all, this came to a healthy group of 340 content creators and real engagers interested in technology and photography. Feel free to add them! As usual, stats and circle creation for this post were only made possible thanks to +CircleCount and +Circloscope. #engagers   #circleshare #circlesharing   #circleversary #milestone #googleplus #circleoftheday #circleplus #public #publiccircles 2013-12-16 17:49:57340441177CC G+

There are three stories and only three stories. 

I kid. But actually, if you look at most of the blockbuster movies, especially those from Disney, these lines will feel fairly familiar to you. This is Vonnegut's take, and I highly encourage you to follow the link and watch the four minute video of him explaining these three lines. It's excellent delivery and very funny. 

Personally, I like the Hero's Journey, as outlined by Joseph Campbell, but you can see that there are a lot of similarities:

In this piece, +Kevin von Duuglas-Ittu asks some important questions about the simplification of Google services. He builds on the "user behavior modification" idea that +Mark Traphagen touched on a few weeks ago. 

This dimension of behavior modification is immense, and even profound, given the promise of what the Internet hoped to be, a vast library of human knowledge, an infinite sedimented record of facts, activity and thought. What made Google Google was that it was a tool that we could use to navigate a very large, incredible and sometimes stormy sea. Part of what Google has been doing though, is shrinking that sea, and also encouraging us to maybe sail much closer to our harbor where waters are much more manageable and pacific.

Employees at companies with a strong sense of purpose are more likely to believe their firms are doing well across a wide variety of measure than employees in firms without that sense of purpose. Those measures include: financial performance, competitiveness, values and beliefs, customer satisfaction and employee satisfaction.

Map Your Desired Super Powers

If your interests lie in the cross-section of super powers and infographics, you will absolutely love this one. 

Powers of the body? Well, under "body manipulation", there's invisibility (Invisible Woman), and body growth (Ant-Man, Goliath). And under "transmute body", there's sand (Sandman), diamond (Emma Frost).

But there's also "Object Manipulation", "Mastery", "Force Control" and ... well, you get the idea. 

OK. Geek out. (It's ok). What are your top three?

What is a Regenerative Business?

One of the first steps to building regenerative business is rejecting the idea that your business is just a piece of property. Regenerative businesses prioritize people, then they prioritize mission, and then they prioritize maximizing returns for shareholders. 

Sound radical? Well, apparently, even someone like "Neutron Jack" didn't think so: 

“On the face of it, shareholder value is the dumbest idea in the world. Shareholder value is a result, not a strategy… your main constituencies are your employees, your customers and your products.”
– Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric

The Matrix gets a step closer with the latest update to Android's camera app. It now allows for this kind of "bokeh" blur effect, something you could only get with a SLR camera in the past. It's a pretty nifty trick. You snap the pic and then shift the camera up ever so slightly. The software then handles the blur between foreground and background. 

Uh, Apple, you might want to take note on this one. Pretty cool trick.

The maker of Roomba says its robots may someday recognize everything in your house. Put enough sensors on them and combine that with cloud access to boost their intelligence and we could have some pretty smart household robots.

Laundry is a key chore people want to hand off to robots, but don't hold your breath.

Purpose Drives Profits And Confidence

The Shared Interest Graph

Much of what we do here on Google+ is share interests with one another. We do it through communities. We do it through circling people with similar passions. We do it through commenting and learning together. 

I wrote this article last June to provide people with an overview of what the interest graph is, how it's being used by companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon, and explore this notion of a "shared interest graph" - which is essentially the intersection between our social graph and our interest graph. I figured that enough time has gone by that it's probably worth sharing it again.

Which smile is genuine, and which is social?

"Whenever we smile, there are 2 potential muscles we activate. The first one is the zygomaticus major and it controls the corners of your mouth. Whenever this muscle only is activated, it’s not actually a genuine smile. Scientists call this also the “social” smile. The second muscle, known to show sincerity is the obicularis occuli and it encircles our eye socket."

Here's a great piece on the science of smiling:

Turns out, smiling is good for you. But I guess most of us already knew that.

Seventy percent of workers are not engaged in their work

Yikes. I've seen these number before, but every time I see them, I am astounded.  Gallup breaks the numbers out as follows: 

THREE CATEGORIES OF WORKER ENGAGEMENT:

Engaged (30% of the U.S. population): Deeply committed to the success of their organization and emotionally connected to its mission and goals. Routinely willing to put forth discretionary effort.

Disengaged (52% of the U.S. population): Less emotionally connected to their work and less compelled to put forth extra effort. They show up for work but generally do only the minimum required.

Actively Disengaged (18% of the U.S. population): Actively against what the organization, and their boss, is trying to get done.

Amazon’s Dash WiFi ‘Shopping Wand’ is Death Blow to Zombie Retail [Video]

Going to the grocery store is one of my least favorite things to do. This Dash shopping wand from Amazon that links up with the Amazon Fresh service looks like it's for me.

 It's interesting to think about how Dash may be used outside the home too, as this article speculates. Will you take it with you in case you come across something you like at a store? Will we start to see stores banning "shopping wands" on their property altogether? Or, is there a way for retailers to compete in a smarter way?

Bridging Online and Real-World Engagement

Back when I used to run a mission-driven engagement consulting shop, I developed a framework to help our clients more effectively engage their constituents. Our clients were mostly nonprofit organizations, though I now see that the model could be useful for a much broader range of mission-driven business and social enterprises. 

One of the key goals for this framework was to bridge technology assisted, online communications aimed at increasing reach with the more personal and face-to-face kinds of engagement that most often result in real world impact. 

For this reason, this framework isn't based on transactional thinking. It comes more out of a community organizing model, where the upper levels are more about developing people and their ownership and leadership of the mission. My work on this model helped me eventuallyt... more »

Resonance

Everything has a natural resonant frequency and some things have more than one. The physical characteristics of objects determine their own particular frequencies.

Everything vibrates, from large to small - even tiny. Atoms vibrate and that's what gives them mass.

Think of a tuning fork - tap it and it resonates, vibrates at a set frequency to create a specific note.

Think of running a wet finger around the rim of a glass, making it sing as you move at just the right rate to trigger its natural resonance.

Think of an opera singer breaking that glass with just their voice, hitting just the right note with sufficient, sustained intensity so as to cause the glass to vibrate itself to pieces.

It is easy to get something to vibrate at its resonant frequency and hard, if not almost impossible, to get it to vibrate at others.... more »

As the reality of what the JOBS Act crowd funding opportunity becomes increasingly convoluted with the high cost of legal compliance, the momentum for crowd funding may well be moving to the state level.

State-based crowd funding would be limited to in-state investors. And you know what? I think that could be a really good thing, as it is likely to slow down the money a bit and better connect it to the long-term interests of the business and the stakeholders it serves.

On Money and Politics

It strikes me that the core of this issue of campaign finance reform is the separation of our political and our economic spheres. These spheres operate on fundamentally different, and conflicting, sets of assumptions... values really, that are quite different on each respective realm.

Our economic realm values efficiency and entrepreneurial freedom. We rely on the power of the market to help us with these goals, and we tend not to condone things that get in the way of them.

Our political realm is driven by a different set of values, among them, liberty and equality.

In the political realm, we honor the fundamental belief that we are all equal in a political sense, that each of us has an equal vote.

In the economic realm, that kind of egalitarianism smacks of socialism or communism, and we here in the United States have a... more »

Quotes of the Week: April 2, 2014

One of the problems about the new views is that it fails to recognize all the great contributions people make to this community by commenting. So, in celebration of those "unsung heroes" (to quote +Bruce Marko), here is a compendium of some classic quotes that people shared with me on some of my posts this week. I hope to keep this up over time and gradually expand it to great comments I see elsewhere.

I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge +John Kellden, who practices a slightly different form of this acknowledgement in his excellent compendium posts.

BREAKING: The Supreme Court has handed down its #McCutcheon v. FEC decision, deciding to strike down aggregate limits on direct political contributions by claiming they are unconstitutional based on the First Amendment.

It’s another major blow to America’s campaign finance system.

Thanks to the high court, wealthy donors can now pour millions more into federal elections - the decision effectively ties a big bow around Congress and delivers it to the 1%.

For all you Ken Wilber fans out there - here's +martin shervington doing some riffing on how the "four quadrants" applies to dealing with change here on Google+. 

What I like about this piece, and the four quadrants approach in general, is that it looks holistically at how change happens. It's not just the technology. It's not just the individual (thinking and behavior). It's not just the culture. It's the interactions between all four.

I think we need to be careful about what we mean by "artificial." 

The "artificial" in "artificial intelligence" does not somehow mean fake or separate from reality. It is an extension of reality.

Google and User Behavior Modification

This piece by +Mark Traphagen is the best overview of the new views metric on Google+ that I've seen. I've personally gotten a little too sucked into this issue over the past two days, so this will be my last post on the topic. Actually, I'm trying to use this hot topic to point out a couple of other interesting ideas.

The first, yesterday, was about "network opportunity" - which is essentially the argument that it's really important that we keep this, and other social networks, open and easy for new people to join and have success with - it matters in the big picture: 

In this case today, I want to focus on what Mark calls "Google and User Behavior Modification." It's the idea that we users provide the fuel that drives this network (as well as search) and Google uses various algorithmsan... more »

Google's stock will split as of Thursday. What's interesting is that the new shares will be under a new ticker symbol and will be non-voting class shares. Why? Because the founders want to ensure they aren't hijacked by bandits like Carl Icahn and his ilk. They really want to retain their ability to keep the company focused on long-term strategies and not driven by quarterly profits and shareholder returns. 

Can't say I blame them, and even though it may not sound like it, I think it's actually a really good thing.

Ensuring Opportunity in Our Networks

Yesterday, Google rolled out the new "views" metric that allows us to see the total number of views of people's (and page's) posts, images and video's here on Google+. And yesterday, I wrote a post that explored what I'm calling the V2F ratio, which is total views of our content divided by the total number of people/pages following us.

Today, I want to talk about why I think a number like this matters. 

The V2F ratio has some problems (see below), but the one thing I like about this metric is that it could help a new person just starting out on Google+ to gain a little more visibility.

The Views Rankings
After a looong night

We will start with some simply lists:
Profiles ordered by Views
http://www.circlecount.com/profilesviews/

Pages ordered by Views
http://www.circlecount.com/pagesviews/

The lists are update in realtime and as we check the profiles/pages. Right now there are only 3,929 profiles/pages in our index with a view count, but the script is running... 3 minutes now ;)

We will have to see tomorrow which other metrics can be created out of this view number (at first we want to get sure it's not an April Fool's Joke ;) ).

The New View-to-Follower (V2F) Ratio on Google+

With the rollout of the new "views" count on Google+ (see this short explanation by +Jaana Nyström: http://goo.gl/XuWMa0), Google is now giving us visibility on the sum of your profile, post and photo views since October 2012.

One of the first questions people are now asking is what to make of the "view-to-follower" ("V2F" for short) ratio that is now possible to calculate. I'm guessing it won't be long before +CircleCount incorporates this into its excellent data slices, and that as a result, this ratio will become quite visibly associated with each of our profiles and pages. 

So, what does it mean?

My V2F ratio is 118, which is to say that I have 118 views for every follower. I've taken the liberty of pulling up a decidedly un_scientific sampling ofpeo... more »

Thinking a little differently about value creation...

"Every time a child hugs a teddy bear as she nods off to sleep at night, value and meaning are created. That value isn’t captured in the books of the teddy bear manufacturer, designer or retailer, but it is there, quietly accruing in thousands of little beds throughout the world, invisible to the calculations of the economist."

Google+ Hangouts for Business

I spent much of the last year researching, writing, re-writing and then, as the platform functionality changed, writing again, a book on Google+ Hangouts for Business. 

What's interesting is that I came across, just yesterday, a WSJ piece on videoconferencing (http://goo.gl/jDr9Q6) where it's cited that the activity looks set to increase by 47% in the near future and it is causing no end of disruption as trust, authenticity and authority are again challenged. 

Hangouts On Air are a disruptive technology. They're also the quickest way to build brand equity, establish trust and authority in your field of expertise. Like everything else we do in a social media setting, they need a certain amount of learning in order to produce results.

Cold Masks: Why the Heck Not?

I have a cold. It'd be way more considerate for me to wear a surgical mask when I go out in public, just like they do in Japan. Studies seem to show that it helps prevent the spread of colds and flus:

A 2008 study published in the International Journal of Infectious Disease concluded that when used correctly, masks are highly effective in preventing the spread of infections. Family members of children with flu-like illnesses who used the masks properly were 80 percent less likely to be diagnosed with the illness. The difference between types of masks used was insignificant (MacIntyre, 2008).
Another study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine reported similar results. Researchers looked at 400 people who had the flu. They found that family members cut their risk of getting the flu by 70 percent when they washed their hands often and... more »

A Deeper Look at Superhero Struggles

Warning - some fairly deep secrets: Spider-man sexually abused as a kid, Hulk (aka Bruce Banner) physically abused too, and Prof X was madly in love with Jean

Growing up, I was a fan of Marvel comics. They resonated with me on a deep level, as they clearly have with many others. One of my favorite lenses on comics is that they are the modern-day equivalents of what Joseph Campbell calls, the Hero's Journey.  

One of the core elements of the Hero's Journey are tests and enemies along the way. We're used thinking of those enemies as villains like Loki and Dr. Octopus, but some sometimes those challenges are much deeper and originate even before the original "call to adventure" of the hero's "origin story."

One of the things I appreciated about Marvel (I didn't read DC, so I... more »

Coaching for the Socially Awkward?

MIT researchers have developed a software to help people who are "socially awkward" improve their people skills.

One implication I have heard discussed is that this may benefits people with high-functioning Asperger's as there is a feedback given and the participant can practice with a computer, in a "safe" environment.

It certainly seems to be a very innovative idea, and the before and after of the young biology student is quite convincing.

A New Story for a New Economy
by David Korten

http://www.yesmagazine.org/pdf/kortennewstory.pdf

In this piece, David Korten makes the case for valuing life over money as the underlying principle around which we organize our economy and our society. To do this, he taps the power of story.

A growing number of people and groups now recognize the need for a New Story that draws from many sources of human understanding, brings together the insights of both religion and science, and addresses the distinctive needs and realities of our time. Through their individual and collective efforts a New Story is emerging. It has yet to acquire a generally accepted name. For the moment, let's call it the Living Universe story..."

More Investment in Artificial Intelligence

Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk have just invested in Artificial Intelligence firm, Vicarious, which is seeking to re-create the human mind's 

Vicarious has an ambitious goal: Replicating the neocortex, the part of the brain that sees, controls the body, understands language and does math. Translate the neocortex into computer code and “you have a computer that thinks like a person,” says Vicarious co-founder Scott Phoenix. “Except it doesn’t have to eat or sleep.”

This is a personal investment by Mark Zuckerberg, not a Facebook investment, but the article goes on to speculate about how something like this might be used by Facebook: 

Facebook, for instance, wants to turn the massive amounts of information shared by its users into a database of wisdom. Ask Facebook a question, and, if all goesto plan, it... more »

Are Organizations Alive?

With each passing year, organizations act more and more like living entities thanks to the evolution of technology.

The notion that organizations might be a form of life is a radical perspective. It is useful as metaphor, but through this and future articles, I hope to persuade you that an “organization as life” perspective is more than just metaphor.

These are the opening lines from the first in a new line of articles, exploring the future of technology, organizations and humanity. I shared this in a post a week and a half ago, and in return received some of the richest commentary and thinking I've yet experienced here on Google+.

Will Twitter kill the '@' symbol to simplify the service?

Lots of people have complained about "on-boarding" here on Google+, which is to say, how easy it is to get some easy, early success when you just start using the service. Well, it seems that Twitter is struggling with these same problems, and is now running experiments to simplify the service. Note that, according to one estimate, as many as a billion users have tried the service and then stopped using it.

And despite lots of talk about the service becoming popular with teens, it only grew by a million users last quarter in the U.S.

A short, new piece from me on making room for wisdom in our worship of data, information and knowledge. Wisdom is not just one more step in that chain. It's something different, and something we need to desperately understand to ensure we're building organizations and technologies that are infused with it for our future.

Large Images for Link Shares
Who else is having trouble getting these new large images to show up when posting links from your site? 

I have done everything in this (very thorough) article: 
* Using a large image
* Ensuring the article is marked up as an article (using OpenGraph)
* Ensuring the desired image is marked up (again, using OpenGraph)
* I have a Google+ page validated for my site

And still no large images from sharing articles on my site. Anyone have any advice, or thoughts?
