Ian Archibald16,093Circle of Google PlussersSo, I often get asked Who should I circle?  I say whomever strikes your interest. Find topics of interest and connect with those people who share that interest.I would very much like to share with you "my" circle of Plussers of whom I LOVE to engage with.  There are people in science, sports, networking, technology, comics, art and medicine found inside, and likely some others as well.  I've been spending the last couple years curating this list.I hope that you will connect with some of these folks!Have a great weekend everyone!2014-02-15 01:16:53326182224CC G+
Amanda Blain3,822,089*IAmGeek Circle Of Amazing - Add These Geeks to Your Stream*Wow! A targeted active and engaged circle of Geeks here on G+. Each and every single one of these fine people shared a post about Whatever it is they are geeky about with the hashtag #IAmGeek . I read and commented on posts about space, zombies, video games, people growing up as geeks, sci fi books,  Mobile phones, neuroscience, Dr Who, Anime, and lots more.  (check out the links to the posts here -https://plus.google.com/u/0/107982618909749811163/posts/hb5jfJS3Gmo)The #IAmGeek  Hashtag trended for most of yesterday. Several people including one post from someone brand new to G+ (less than 100 followers) hit the what's hot list(https://plus.google.com/u/0/107348276687585876026/posts/EuAeicWFVaW), and there were TONS of interactions from the people in this circle, commenting on others posts who used the hashtag.... Awesome!A great experiment and success if you ask me. Proof Circle shares still matter if you spend some time on it. So if you want some more geek in your stream.. why not add this circle up?  If your in the circle, why not share it to reach more geek fans( and why not share another #IAmGeek  post today or later this week :) ) And if i managed to miss you some how.. my apologizes.. There was a lot of stuff happening at once and errors are made. I promise I don't hate you :)#sharedcircle #IAmGeek #geek #circleshare2014-02-13 21:23:031327659146CC G+

Project Tango and SPHERES:  Autonomous navigation aboard the International Space Station

MIT Space Systems Laboratory’s Synchronized Position Hold Engage and Reorient Experimental Satellites (SPHERES) project is a robotic platform consisting of three small satellites designed operate in micro-gravity environments, that can control their relative positions and orientations.

Here's Erc S Yuan, the founder of Zoom..
quote Eric S. Yuan knows about the challenges befalling those who can't communicate face-to-face. The founder and CEO of Zoom Video Communications recalls that when he and his wife attended schools 1,000 miles apart meeting via train was impractical. Pursuing a vision of making video conferencing mainstream, he believes the commonality among successful companies is the ability to execute on the vision and strategy and discusses the two critical elements to succeed: focus and the courage to try, and if you fail to try again. That's the path he's taking as he aims to build the best service in a highly competitive market. And he has forged a similar path previously: Arriving in San Francisco one blue-sky day as Netscape, Yahoo! and other emerging companies were generating excitement over the potential of the Internet, he thought the Bay Area was the... more »

Lens Blur in the new Google Camera app
Posted by Carlos Hernández, Software Engineer

One of the biggest advantages of SLR cameras (http://goo.gl/XeAhti) over camera phones is the ability to achieve shallow depth of field effects (also known as bokeh, http://goo.gl/xHR774), which makes the object of interest "pop" by bringing the foreground into focus and de-emphasizing the background. 

Achieving this optical effect has traditionally required a big lens and aperture, and therefore hasn’t been possible using the camera on your mobile phone or tablet. That all changes with Lens Blur, a new mode in the Google Camera app (http://goo.gl/UpMubk). 

Lens Blur  replaces the need for a large optical system with computer vision algorithms and optimization techniques that are run entirely on the mobile device, simulating a larger lens and aperture in order tocreat... more »

Have you ever used Chrome Remote Desktop to remotely access your computer from a different laptop or computer? Today that same functionality is coming to +Android phones & tablets with the Chrome Remote Desktop App for Android. Simply launch the app, select which computer you’d like to access, and start using it as if you were sitting in front of it. 

You can start setting up a computer for remote access by installing the Chrome Remote Desktop app from the Chrome Web Store: http://goo.gl/V9bJ9. And if you’d like to learn more about how to use Chrome Remote Desktop, you can check out these tips: http://goo.gl/7T58lk.

This is a huge topic that's close to my heart. I count myself as privileged to be able to know and use digital. Many are not - it's those people I wish to help. The screaming silence that's the web, means you can do it in quiet corners - no one will see or hear you. And that means many people are alone. I also accept the irony of posting like this to a choir that's converted - that simply means you join in and help those who are in need of assistance ..

+Journalism.co.uk As someone who is doing work on digital literacy, I not sure where to begin with this post. It seems Google is not the Elephant in the room, it's a Godzilla. I've listened to the podcast which mentions twitter, facebook, linkedin, tweetdeck, flickr, buzzfeed, skype, photoshop, iphone, instagram, vine and eventually youtube.

Reference is made to online, picture sourcing, digging for news, viral and finding you.
So what's being left out? 90% of the UK use Google to Search (5.93% Bing) and therefore even associated Google service is a pretty big deal. These may include Maps, Android, Chrome and Google+.
There are over a 100 Google services appropriate to journalists. So why are they going unsaid in this post? If what you and your guests say, then perhaps everyone searches for stories in some other method than with Google (or Bing)?
