Donegal Photowalk 2014219Here is the official Event for the 2014 Donegal Photowalk. The kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am, however,  there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure. Some of us will even be there already on Thursday and Friday. (A good place to find the earlybirds is probably the local bar scene).  Please note that you don't have to confirm a booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome.  If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points soon.  We hope to see you all there. And if someone has good connections to the weather gods, please let them know that we'd prefer the "no rain" option.  Cheers Athena, John & AndyDonegal Photowalk 20142014-09-27 09:00:0029  
Photowalks Hamburg4221. Anreise erfolgt am besten über U-/S-Bahn St. Pauli Landungsbrücken  2. Wir gehen ab 13.00h auf der Nordseite des St. Pauli Elbtunnels, auch bekannt als "Alter Elbtunnel", los - entsprechend treffen wir uns ab ca. 30 Minuten vorher am Haupteingang. *Bitte denkt an ausreichend Getränke/Wasser/Verpflegung etc. - auf dem Weg wird es wenige bis keine Möglichkeiten zum Nachkauf geben.* 3. Wir gehen dann durch den Tunnel auf die Südseite der Elbe mit unverbautem Blick auf die Landungsbrücken und weite Teile der Stadt - die Sonne, sofern nicht bewölkt, liegt dann in unserem Rücken und beleuchtet die Szenerie. 4. Wir bewegen uns dann weiter entlang der Routen auf der Karte zum Hafenmuseum, das einen großen Außenbereich mit Zugang zu Kaianlagen etc. bietet. Da das Museum an der "langen Nacht der Museen" teilnimmt und ab 18.00h Programm sowie "Feurige Grillgerichte und kalte Durstlöscher in der Kaffeeklappe" bietet, könnte das ein netter Abschluss sein. Das reguläre Museumsticket kostet 5,- Euro, mir wurde 3,50 Euro genannt, wir scheinen also eine Gruppe zu sein. 5. Die Rückfahrt erfolgt am besten von der S-Bahn Veddel aus. Sollten sich irgendwelche Planänderungen ergeben, dann geben wir diese im Event bekannt. Das gilt auch für kurzfristige Änderungen aufgrund von Wetter / Unwetter / Schnee / Reaktorkatastrophen, etc.Photowalk Hamburg2014-04-12 12:30:0046

Donegal Photowalk 2014219Here is the official Event for the 2013 UK Seaside Photowalk. The official kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am. Then again, there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure.  Please indicate whether you will be joining us, so we have a rough idea of how many people we can expect. Please note that this is not a confirmed booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome.  If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points in a few weeks.  We hope to see you all there.

Photowalks Hamburg422(english version below) Es freut uns, dass es +Holger Steinmann gelungen ist, uns als Treffpunkt am Samstag wieder das Auditorium im Haus der Photographie, Deichtorhallen zu organisieren :) Wie auch letztes Jahr wird der Eingang seitlich auf der Fleetseite direkt in den Raum führen - wenn man vor dem Haupteingang steht, quasi rechts am Gebäude vorbei. Wir starten dort um 10:30h mit Begrüßung, kurze Vorstellung der Route und ein paar Vorträgen, die wir noch rechtzeitig bekannt geben werden. Gegen etwa 12:00h werden wir dann das obligatorische Gruppenfoto vor dem Haus schießen und dann den ersten Streckenteil angehen. Dieser führt uns über das Chilehaus und den Domplatz/Speersort zur Mönckebergstraße und Spitalerstraße, durch den Hauptbahnhof, am Schauspielhaus und Ohnsorg Theater vorbei über ein kleines Stück St. Georg zum Hotel Atlantic und zur Alster. Dort, am Alsteranleger, *werden wir um 14:21h den Alsterdampfer* auf die andere Seite zur Rabenstraße nehmen.  *Kosten für den Alsterdampfer: € 1,70* Route: http://goo.gl/pLK90G An der Rabenstraße angelangt geht es dann über Alsterpark in Richtung Milchstraße, an St. Johannis vorbei zum Völkerkundemuseum (mit chinesischem Kulturzentrum), über das Uni-Gelände zum Dammtor, dort rein zu Planten un Blomen, um dort, je nach Wetterlage, eine längere Runde zu drehen und den Photowalk langsam zu beenden. Route: http://goo.gl/5t0d5f Die Gesamtlänge beträgt etwa 6 Kilometer.  Für alle, die dann noch Lust haben auf einen gemeinsamen Abendausklang, werden wir dann irgendwo im Karoviertel essen gehen. Je nach Teilnehmeranzahl haben wir dort mehrere Optionen ausgemacht. Für alle eher am „klassischen“ Hamburg interessiert, werden wir uns am Sonntag in der Speicherstadt Kafferösterei  zwischen 10:00h und 11:00h zum Frühstück/Kaffee treffen, um dann gegen 11:30h auf eine durch +Andy Bitterer geführte Tour durch die Speicherstadt und Hafencity zu starten: über Pickhuben und Alter Wandrahm zur meistfotografierten Brücke Hamburgs, Blick auf das Spiegelhaus, über maritimes Museum zum Sandtorpark und über die Marco-Polo-Terrassen zur Elbphilharmonie. Route: http://goo.gl/NfQjCb Die Gesamtlänge: etwa drei Kilometer. Wir freuen uns auf Euch! *ENGLISH VERSION* We‘ll meet up saturday from 10:30h at the „House of Photography“, where we can use the auditorium for some short talks by photographers and some organizational stuff. Group photo outside around 12:00h and then we‘ll move via architectural landmark Chilehaus through the buzzing inner city of Hamburg, crossing the main station and walk down to the Outer Alster lake, which we will cross with the boat at 14:21h (costs: €1.70). Route: http://goo.gl/pLK90G On the other side, we will walk north through the Alsterpark, then through a non destroyed part of old Hamburg, the old Jewish Quarter, the University to a park called „Planten un Blomen“, where, depending on the weather, we will end the walk. Route: http://goo.gl/5t0d5f Overall length is about six kHamburg Photowalk 2013 - International Participants welcome2013-09-14 10:30:0057  
Ingress3,731,966Attention: Hamburg Agents should report to Restaurant Rosenhof, Tiergartenstr. 10 at 11:30AM for check-in and debriefing. Document then upload photos from the field to this public Google+ event album, and use the #Voynich hashtag. *From @108020987035258478791:* Intel suggests the Anomaly is being used by Enlightened Agents to create an XM buffer around @101180225942784917383 to aid her escape from the city. @117792105926525258257 is believed to be organizing this attempt along with a number of Enlightened Agents. Resistance Agents are believed to be organizing themselves to control the Anomaly and disrupt or intercept Campbell. Campbell may be carrying sketches or journal materials related to Shaper Glyphs. She may also be carrying information related to a scientific experiment (the so-called "double blind" informatics study) on the same topic. @108020987035258478791 Operatives have been asked to stand down and to allow +Hank Johnson's exfil plan to proceed uninterrupted (per @108020987035258478791 CEO Ezekiel Calvin). However, NIA, @115880454950193571355 , and/or @107849663787965375687 Operatives may be active. *Measurement Times:* We intend to measure the Anomaly 4 times, during the first five minutes of the hour at 13:00, 14:00, 15:00, and 16:00 Hamburg Local Time (CEST). The exact measurement times are on the following page, encrypted using a One Time Pad, which will be revealed with the results of each measurements. Both within Hamburg and at each Remote Site, a single Cluster of Portals has been identified for each measurement. That is, at 13:00, Cluster 1 in Hamburg and Cluster 1 at each Remote Site will be measured, and so on. *Volatile (Key) Portals:* At each Measurement window, we expect there to be 12 Volatile Portals in Hamburg, and 2 Volatile Portals at each Remote Site. The Volatile Portals are expected to be more valuable to a Faction during this Anomaly. Each Volatile Portal in Hamburg will be connected to one of the Remote Volatile Portals, and in order to claim their value, both Hamburg and Remote Volatile Portals must be owned by the same faction. *Portal Nearest @101180225942784917383:* Because protecting Campbell is the goal, any Portal where she lingers will be extremely important to control and will have added value. To coordinate her protection, she will likely attempt to communicate information about such Portals to her allies throughout the day, most likely using Google+. *Scale of Anomaly:* Due to the scale of the Anomaly, we predict Agents utilizing bicycles will have an advantage. *Values of Portals:* At Measurement time, within the Cluster being measured: Portal Ownership: 1 per Portal Link connected to Portal: 2 per Link Ownership of Portal Nearest Campbell: 15 (Single Portal) Volatile Portal Ownership: 5 per Volatile Portal* Faction must own both Hamburg Volatile Portal and connected Remote Volatile Portal.XM Anomaly: Operation Voynich, Hamburg2013-07-13 11:30:00558

David Bowden37,155Its been awhile....For over three years I collected and shared an exclusive B&W circle. This circle "was" one of the most shared on G+ for awhile. I would share it once a month with everyone as a part of my personal desire to share more quality B&W images and photographers. The requirement for being in this circle was that the photographer shot at least 60% B&W images (I tend to shoot 80%).There are some excellent photographers and friends here. I encourage you to take a look at their work. While I know that bulk circle sharing is a thing of the past or no longer the norm on G+ (which is a shame) I wanted to re-share a collection of truly inspirational people.You wont be disappointed. Re-share if you like their work</david>2014-05-06 23:16:1649012223

Stuart Dyckhoff25,367January EngagersEveryone in this circle has directly engaged with at least one of my posts this past month. This share is my way of saying thank you again for having done so.The only way to get in my monthly engagers circle is to comment on at least one of my posts. A +1 won't do it and it doesn't matter whether I follow you back or not because for at least that month I will follow you if you comment. If you aren't normally in my circles then it's up to you to show me why you ought to remain. That could be by even more regular interaction with me or by sharing your own stuff that makes me want to engage back.Irrespective I do truly appreciate each and every comment folks make as it's this interaction that drives any social media site. Without it, we may as well not be here. Thank you, Diolch, Grazi.2014-01-31 06:53:00811517

Thomas Hawk6,156,0612,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 4 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.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi.  Today's , part 4 of 5, today, represents Mi-Sh.  I'll share the last remaining circle tomorrow.  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 part 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/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6f*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.2013-09-04 15:53:284916083103

Macbook Pro - Yay or Nay?

Thinking about getting a Macbook Pro for photo editing on the road. Currently use an Macbook Air, which is great, but not powerful enough to do any editing in a timely fashion. 

Is anyone using a Macbook Pro for photo editing at the moment and if so, what is your experience and what should I pay attention to in particular? Is it anywhere near a decent "desktop" experience?

Sound off in the comments, too, please.

[edit:] This is a six minute long safety video. I've noticed that those videos tend to get longer and longer. Where "in the olden days" spoken instructions and mimes worked, nowadays airlines try to outinstruct each other.
Not sure this helps in the times of shorter attenti....SQUIRREL!

This. Pretty much.
I don't necessarily agree with every single bit, but overall, this hits home in a lot of its points.

Mountain View, we have a problem

Dear Google, I’m your friend. Really I am. If I weren’t, I wouldn’t take time to tell you there’s a problem. I’m not rage quitting, that’s an easy way out and unworthy of what you’ve built. I’m going to try to make this place better and if not, I’ll find someone, who’ll help me build a better place. That’s not an idle threat, because you know there are smart people with drive out there. Complacency and lack of direction make incumbents vulnerable. 

so let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late (B. Dylan) 

TL;DR
GPlus needs to change and put humans in the middle instead of compartmentalizing us neatly. Suggestions for improvement are also provided. A user group advising and providing feedback would be a good start.  Stop here or proceed at your own peril.


What do you want to be when you grow up?

My friends at Google, we know you have the smartest people, you have the best data, you’re everywhere in tech. Here we are having this discussion on GPlus, an absolutely fantastic site full of potential, but often frustrating to myself and apparently others too. I think I am beginning to understand why.  You don’t know what you want to do with GPlus; you’ve got data instead of people at the heart of the design. 

Just one man’s opinion

Clearly, what I am writing is from a very limited perspective. I lack the data you have. I lack the specialization in this field you have. I am not objective. Thus, this is admittedly only my take on things and I won’t presume to be a speaker for everyone, but I will speak clearly and earnestly with you. I want you to succeed, but if you won’t change in ways that make the experience better here for me, I will go elsewhere, because eventually someone else will offer a better experience if you do nothing. 

No free lunch

This is our implicit bargain.  You been getting my content, tracking me, selling ads using what you know about me. In return, I have been able to use GPlus and other great tools from Google (Search, Drive, Docs, Hangout/Chat, Translate, Scholar, Android, Picnik in the GPlus Photos, etc…) I think we’ve both been more or less content with this deal. I am no longer content though with the experience on GPlus, because it could and should be more.  

What you’ve done well

You’ve given us some very easy to use and powerful features on GPlus. The Hangouts on Air, while something I seldom attend, has been a great way for me to sample some musicians. Events have been great for specific, directed purposes. Hangouts / Chats have been a mixed blessing , but the fact that you offer it as part of the package has been great. You’ve built in a translate function that makes some languages that I don’t speak halfway accessible to me. It lets me follow people with quality posts in different languages. I love the photo quality and tools. Auto awesome, Auto Enhance, the Picnik toolset and the generous space have made sharing photos here easy and fun. Circles are a very good feature that rapidly became my favorite tool for dealing with the stream to ensure I saw what I wanted from people I circled and posted to whom I wanted. Let’s not forget your two-step verification, which gives additional security on the account. Blocking and reporting spam features have been tools that so far, thankfully, I have rarely had to use, but I’m glad they’re there. You deserve special credit for never going down the “Farmville” or “Mafia War” or any of those other games of similar ilk route. That’s definitely a laudable decision to not do something. Sometimes not doing something is just as important as what you do. 

I’m probably forgetting things that have become so second nature that I just take them for granted. That’s a compliment to so many things that are done well here. 


”It depends” Category

Google, you’ve got a lot of things that are a mess. Sometimes they are helpful and sometimes they are mixed blessings at best. I mentioned Hangouts above. One of the people I have followed for a long time on GPlus, who has used hangouts a lot more than I ever have or probably will, told me the other night that her Hangout turned into Chatroulette. If people want Chatroulette they go there. If people want a reasonable discourse a GPlus Hangout ought to be a good alternative. 

Communities  Yes, I get the purpose. I understand why it is good to have private discussion groups or focused forums. Communities have proliferated so much though, that I hardly go to the ones I have anymore. Despite invites I now only add a community once in a blue moon, because I just don’t have time to get to them anymore. I also think they are divisive and detrimental to engagement on GPlus. Oh, some people in communities are passionate and engage frequently and meaningfully within a community, but their voices are sorely missing in the public stream. 

Collections  Again, something I understand. I’ll get around to setting up some. I know that when I post a picture of a spider, even some of my most loyal followers get a shock. Putting spider pictures in a collection could be a good idea to deal with this. They can follow me, but opt out / suppress the spider collection. At least in theory. If someone follows 1000 people will they realistically go to that granular level, esp. over time? After all use of collections will be ongoing and dynamic, so users would have to continually update which collections to turn on or off. I’m sure Google has thought it through. My gut feeling is that collections serve the following purposes: 

1. It’s a Google version of Pinterest (simplistic, but I’m running with that for now) 

2. Google likes to have things categorized. It fits neatly into your most powerful capability: search. You guys can even search scripts and DOMs accurately. If you get people to cleanly categorize pictures and maybe even label them for you, you have another goldmine to make yourselves indispensable with. How could you resist getting users to categorize for you? 

The danger is that it’s going to put keywords and items in the center instead of people. We’re not discovering and interacting with people, we’re searching for and discovering photos associated with keywords. If we don’t know what we don’t know, how will we find something new? Won’t this lead to a progressive encapsulation or a type of filter bubble for our user experience? 

Ok. The intentions behind Collections are good, but I’m keeping an eye on this.


The Bad and sometimes Downright Ugly

November 2013 was a low-water mark for Google Plus. I believe you made an immense mistake that severely damaged the ecosystem. I liken it to an asteroid impact on Earth leaving a distinctive mark in the fossil record. GPlus was for the most part a community of people, who wanted to be on the Plus and who interacted with each other positively (my experience). Then you forced the integration of GPlus and YouTube . I know you’ve heard the complaints before and this is history, but it still echoes here. The YouTube integration marked a time when I started losing people that I enjoyed on here. They either abandoned the place or went to almost exclusively private posts. It is my subjective impression that GPlus went from exuberant adolescent to wary young adult in that period. Let me tell you GPlus that I don’t want my identity on GPlus and my identity on YouTube merged. I want to have a public and a private persona: even if you may know everything I do, I don’t necessarily want every like or dislike to be for public consumption. You overstepped there and you let the barbarians overrun Camelot. They weren’t even interesting barbarians, a better description of the horde would be cretinous trolls.

Hashtags  Please get hashtags under control. I do understand that you need some. Take a look at my attached snapshot evidence hashtaghell. When a post has a title and maybe one or two lines of text and then is followed by two pages of hashtags things are out of control. Do you really think that’s a good idea? Is that really how you want us to reach out to each other? Do you want to take SEO and the “Plus My Post” game to these extremes? 

Circle share abuse  well, you fixed that radically didn’t you? Was there no better way than to completely eliminate it? At what point did you discuss this with your users? I don’t miss circle shares that much and don’t really care. I wasn’t in that game, although I did benefit from shares and apparently was shared some hundreds of times. What bothers me is the lack of discourse with your users. There were legitimate uses for it, but you killed the whole feature. 

What’s Hot fix that too. Yes, you want a “trending” feature, I get it. Curate it How many times will a particular user with only 5000 followers get hundreds or thousands of “+1s” , a handful of comments and never respond to any commenter? Zero engagement, nada, zilch, but every day turn up on “What’s Hot”. Sure, some of those shots are good, but they’re not outclassing everyone else every day. Is that on the level? Maybe it is. Maybe it is the culture and the region. I think you’re being gamed. I damned sure am sick of seeing that. Oh yeah, I can block, but you’re letting it happen. Blocking only pretends it’s not going on. It would be an ostrich tactic.  

Speaking of gaming “What’s Hot”, apparently a couple of hashtags about bees will get you on “What’s Hot and Recommended” even if you don’t have much to say or a very good photo, while other people’s work that I have seen barely gets noticed. That’s a riddle to me too. There are probably other examples, but I think I’ve made the point that something is fishy in Denmark. 

You want users to spend their energy on hashtags and SEO? That’s what you’re going to get. We’re not all in this for money or fame. I understand businesses competing for top page ranks. Let that happen in the Search Engine Wars. Level the playing field on GPlus for normal users. Rigged games turn people off. I don’t think competitive hashtagging is where the majority of users want to wind up. 


Frustration: it’s got to be better than this

Lacking any way to get meaningful statistics inside GPlus, I’ve had to do some reading and use outside tools. Google says there are about 300 million active GPlus users in a month. Stone Temple Consulting did a study of public posts and concluded the number was close to 110 million active users. That’s a lot, but only about 0.5% of Google users. Only 6.7 million have 50 posts or more EVER on GPlus. About 3.5 million have 50 posts in the last 30 days on GPlus. 

Let’s get down to my numbers, because they’re the only ones I can speak directly to. Thanks to 3rd party tools: +CircleCount  and +NOD3x , I have some information I can use.

2171 total public posts from 20110715 to 20150513
2012 posts in statistics 
20.4 +1s per post
0.78 reshares per post
8.2 comments per post

Current numbers based on last 50 posts
20 comments per post
2 reshares per post
55 +1s per post
16992 followers

77 total engages (reshares, comments, +1s)

0.0045 Engaged Spread => 0.45 % interaction based on number of followers
(Reshares + Comments + +1s) /  Followers

0.006 Engaged Depth => .6 %
(reshares*3 + comments*2 + +1s) /  Followers

I can’t say if these are good or bad, but I do feel like I rarely reach someone new in terms of engagement. Mostly, I think, I have a loyal group of regulars (I adore you), with whom I have interaction in comments on my posts or on their posts. If I get past 150 people in a week I’m doing great. That doesn’t seem very good to me considering that I supposedly have almost 17k followers. That’s roughly 0.9% interacting with me. Is that typical? It seems pretty low to me as a layperson, but I do enjoy the interactions with the people I have come to know. I’m happy with the quality so far, but a bit mystified at such a low level of interacting versus the apparent base (17k). 


An eloquent comment by a friend

_ But it wasn't just me who changed. Google+ changed too._ The tone changed and some changes had a profound impact on personal interactions. I saw and still see, people pouring out their hearts and I wonder, do people even still see this? Have we, as in users of social media, become so jaded or is everything happening too fast? Has the neverending stream of information around us dulled our ability to see? (from a friend’s post. Not listing his name to protect him in case things go south on this post. If he wants his name in here, I’ll edit and insert it.) 


Making this place better

Sometimes you have to roll the hard six

I know that I’m opening myself up to be ripped into by lots of people, lectured by others and have still more shake their heads and say “bless his heart”. It’s ok. I don’t want to just criticize. I want changes and have ideas. I’m sure they don’t match everyone’s ideas, but unless people advance ideas on what’s wrong and what needs fixing, you, Google, are going to do what you think best in a vacuum. At least I’m not hearing about you reaching out to people like myself, so it appears to be a vacuum to me.
 

Action Plan

1. You need a user group that’s a real cross-section of your users. Ensure both women and men get to participate. Include power users (bloggers, musicians, artists, tech columnists, authors, etc.), but also regular users. Include people from different regions. Include people using different tools out of your offerings. 

2. give us a meaningful roadmap or vision for GPlus. What are you going to do to make this the best place for people to interact on the web?

3. Put in some “simple” fixes to small, but aggravating problems.

3.1 When a post is reshared and gets plusses, why not have the plusses also automatically added to the original post?

3.2 let people have better view to what happens with their posts. Who is interacting on it (limited number when you click on activity today)? If something takes off, who was the key user in that chain of events?  

3.3 if you won’t give us the tools to understand what is going on then open up the API to CircleCount, Node3x and others. Let them develop add-ons to make our experience better. Open it ALL up to them. 

3.4 Give me a way to check my circles. Who is still active? Who abandoned in 2013? Let me clean out my circles without a tedious search one by one. Sure, I would like people to come back, but if they’ve been gone a year or more, I’d like to see it and make space for people, who will interact with me.

3.5 Take hashtags out of the main post. Put them in another section, i.e. a post has a text section, it has an optional “labels” or “hashtag” section, it has a link/photo/video sharing option.

3.6 Curate “What’s Hot” better. Even better than that, get people on GPlus, who actually find good quality postings and put them in a recommended/curated listing. If you’re doing that today, it isn’t living up to my expectations.

3.7 Why don’t you want to be the place for people to come to discuss topics? Why shouldn’t GPlus, built by some of the brightest people of our era, running on and within one of the most capable global companies, be a place that attracts avante garde and intellectual interaction? You ought to want to make this the place to be on the internet. I’m not asking you to be a Facebook killer. Don’t be Facebook, Pinterest, MySpace or the Matrix. Bring bright minds together. Make it easy and rewarding to mix and mingle. You can dominate this space in a way no one else does.

3.8 If you can’t figure out how to make 3.7 happen then find your top contributors of original content (music, art, photos, blogs, regular posts) and make them an offer as a highlighted contributor. At least figure out something to make it rewarding for them instead of leaving them to be worn down by the parade of spammers and trolls. Make sure there is support for them to handle the engagement volume. Some of you remember Dede King? Someone like Dede would be great. Sure she polarized, but we need spice not oatmeal. 

3.9 The “Discover” feature is lame. Those aren’t people interacting with us. Maybe some are news sources, but I don’t need GPlus for that. Famous people, who don’t interact and don’t do their own comments are boring to me. The only one I’ve run across, who was good at that was Jerry Ryan. Fix it. Rotate people in. Use your own statistics to show people, who really interact and let the cream rise to the top. Use your curators to find quality content, not just names. 


4. Dr. Zaius, get your stinking algorithms off me 

Google, you mean well, but these algorithm changes are killing interactions. We users do notice when engagement drops off. It’s not a ghost town, but sometimes things drop off suddenly for a week or two, usually around new feature introductions. If it were just me then I would look for a reason in my posts or the quality of my work. I’ve had enough people tell me they notice something too, that I don’t think it’s me. It’s you Google. You surprise us and you’re not transparent.
What I think is wrong: you’re doing Big Data and assume like likes like. I’m sure there’s statistics for it. I’m sure it’s more comfortable that way, but some of the more interesting people aren’t like me. I also have Circle Management. I know who I want to see out of the people I already know. Why do you keep changing relevance algorithms and pulling us apart? I feel like the bread pudding in the expanding universe analogy where galaxies are raisins and growing further apart. 

I want control over what I see in my existing circles without your algorithms deciding to give me less of Jane Doe and more of John Smith. I also want to be able to discover people from something like the old “incoming stream”. Right now my main way to discover new people is from interaction with new people, who plus/comment on my posts or a GPlus friend’s posts. I grow slowly, organically and have richer interactions, but I don’t know what I’m missing out there. How can I get new stuff in my stream and avoid a “filter bubble” and slow, but sure stagnation? 


Wrapping Up

Google, I care about GPlus. You’ve let me meet wonderful people from all over the world, who I never would have met any other way. I’ve learned from others and I’ve grown in unexpected ways. It has been a great ride. I think you have more to offer, but I also think you’re complacent, distant from your users and lacking clearly communicated direction. You may have it all internally. I know you have extremely sharp, driven people and wouldn’t rule out anything you want to accomplish. You need to remember users though. GPlus may be a great layer on top of other services, but make it something people also continue enjoying to connect with other people. 

Thank you for the good years! I hope you have more to come, but don’t take it for granted. Others may do it better if you won’t put users back in the center. No one stays on top forever. As users we have to adapt to change. As a provider you need to change and adapt to opportunities and threats too. If you make this a place people love (net promoter scores anyone?) GPlus will master all the changes. 

We need very strong ears to hear ourselves judged frankly, and because there are few who can endure frank criticism without being stung by it, those who venture to criticize us perform a remarkable act of friendship, for to undertake to wound or offend a man for his own good is to have a healthy love for him. (Montaigne)

Thanks for listening. I came as a friend.

Macbook Pro - Yay or Nay?

Thinking about getting a Macbook Pro for photo editing on the road. Currently use an Macbook Air, which is great, but not powerful enough to do any editing in a timely fashion. 

Is anyone using a Macbook Pro for photo editing at the moment and if so, what is your experience and what should I pay attention to in particular? Is it anywhere near a decent "desktop" experience?

Sound off in the comments, too, please.

PSA: Choose your community invites wisely
Hi, 
during the last weeks, the amount of invites to communities has reached new highs - at least for me. I receive about half a dozen a day. Sometimes thrice that. Most of them show me that the person inviting has no idea that they just invited me, i.e. they don't care.

If you invite me to a community and I can't see even remotely why you did it, I will mute you as a result.

Also, if you invite me to marketing groups or to a group called Facebook, I will block you immediately.

Thanks - have a nice day.

Wolgan Valley Full Size Pano

I've played a bit with the panorama function in LR 6 and it works IMO better than its Photoshop sister. Here I took 9 photos I've shot freehand in Australia and combined them to a panorama.

Check it out, it's full size, so if you zoom in, give it a moment to load the more detailed view.

Oh, and in the back you can see why the "Blue Mountains" are called "blue" - the haze from the Eucalyptus causes the light to reflect with a blue-ish tint.

Lightroom 6 - Facial Recognition
I worked with this for a couple of hours now. I let it run through my files and identify images with faces in it - which only took about 16 hours.

And here's the first problem: while it passes on tons of portrait shots (which obviously have no faces in them), it tags images like this one.

I thought to myself "Ok, it needs to be trained" and started to tag and identify people manually.

I did that to roughly a thousand photos in the time frame of a couple of hours and now can safely say that it stays dumb. No increase in recognition of faces, abysmal rate of correct identifications.

Funny enough, it sometimes recognizes people correctly in near black darkness or in totally blurred parts of an image. 

So, what's your experience so far with Lightroom 6.0 Beta?
