Luis V.60,843The other day I shared my circle of Interactors that get major credit for my enjoyment of G+. Now, I neglected to add my circle of Pop Culture Peeps that keep me informed about almost everything pop culture from comics to television to movies and more. They also get major credit for my being entertained and informed here. This is a shout-out to you guise and well deserved. Thanks!2014-04-29 04:10:1915225267

Fraser Cain798,034Super Science Circle, July 2013 EditionNeed more science in your streams? Want to convince a friend that Google+ is a thriving place of science and rational thinking? Then import my Super Science Circle and be amazed at the awesomeness.PLEASE RESHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!Every single person in this circle is active on Google+ and regularly contributes high quality posts about science. You've got my personal guarantee.As always, I recommend you import this group into a temporary circle and look for people who match your interests. Then pull them over into more permanent locations in your circles. Or just wait for me to give you an update next month.If you want to be included in this circle, just make a post in the comments and I'll check out your profile.I'm looking for people who:1. Are active on Google+ (but not too active)2. Regularly post about science3. Provide context and additional information, and not just bare links or annoying memes.2013-07-16 18:35:56415255987
Mz Maau10,204I rarely share circles, and I regret to inform, this is not the promised #CircleDirk , rather, it's a circle I've been semi-maintaining since last spring, when it was created for +Pierce Arner to jump-start his Plus experience.Today, I'm resharing the current version on behalf of +Søren Dalsgaard Brath, who, like Pierce, is looking for new content for his stream.I figure he and I probably have a chunk of overlap, so I've added a few extras he might not yet know about.Some notes about the curation of this circle:I've tried to set aside those who have not posted recently, and I've tried to only include those who post publicly, or to extended circles.  I may have missed a few, and if you're in this circle and would like to be permanently removed, please let me know.This is not the final version, as I'm not sure such a thing is possible.This circle DOES come with a warning:You will, most likely, NOT enjoy everyone in this circle.  I, like many, have eclectic tastes, and I'm still a bit gun-shy after seeing some of the explosions from last year's crossing of the streams, so PLEASE, edit this circle to your liking with that in mind.If I ping you, you're in the circle.  There is no expectation or requirement to add this circle, it's merely a courtesy ping.  Again, if you would like to be removed from any future circle shares, please let me know.And yes, I promise, I'm still working on the #CircleDirk .Also note:  This is NOT an indication of who I like best, though some are included in this circle.  It is simply meant to be a sample of the diversity I follow.#PinkAndFluffyPersonsOfQuestionableRepute2013-06-22 16:38:09164143576
Paul Christen113If you want to be TOTALLY freaked out, follow this science circle. Its not mine, it was shared by (I think) +Fraser Cain .Man, a  day does not go by that I'm not amazed by the advances in science and technology.2013-06-11 13:54:194095310
Richard Green14,653My previous Engagers circle has filled up, so I've started it again from scratch.  Here is a circle of people who have engaged with one of my posts (since the last share of the circle) in the form of +1s, comments and public reshares.As usual, there are some "guest" profiles in my circle.  This time I have included 83 extra people from one of my general interest circles.  These 83 extra people are in the circle because of the quality of their streams and profiles.I'd like to withdraw my earlier enthusiasm for the new circling interface.  Under the old system, it was possible to get a list of up to 100 people who plus-oned your post, and up to 100 people who reshared it. But under the new system, if a total of more than 50 people engage with your post, it seems to be impossible to get Google to give you a complete list of engagers.  The upshot is that this circle might be missing some people; apologies if this is the case.Thanks for reading my posts!2013-05-26 04:30:25290822583

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 19:26:51456348088

Richard Green11,662It's time for my approximately-weekly circle share.  This one is based on my earlier Thankers circle, which contained people and pages who had thanked others for sharing a circle that happened to have me in it.  (It's a simple idea, but hard to express concisely.)Since then, according to circlecount.com, I've been included in 86 public circles, not counting reshares.  This is great, but it does mean that I can't keep adding to the Thankers circle in the same way, because it is too much work to check the comments on 86 different circles! However, the circle below does include (a) the original authors of those 86 circles and (b) everyone who commented on the original post of one of my recent circle shares.  I've also included 80 extra people in the circle because they look interesting and I probably haven't shared them in a circle before.2013-05-05 02:58:01338852974
Fraser Cain770,050Super Science Circle - April 2013 EditionIt's time for another sharing of my Super Science Circle. This is a collection of 400+ active people on Google+ who often post about science. If anyone tells you G+ is a ghost town (not that anyone does any more), get them to import this circle. PLEASE SHARE THIS CIRCLE... 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. So what you'll want to do is import the list into a temporary circle. 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 22:39:3139967163160

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 02:59:31420544084

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 13:15:584135110

Elizabeth Jane0This was my first circle, called Circle of Awesomeness - it has some interesting people in it.

It includes science fiction and science and also artwork-humour. If you want to join it you should share it publicly and add it to your circles, including yourself when you add it.Here are the hashtags I found copied with it on +martin shervington's page.

"Obama has come under some criticism from Republicans in Congress in recent days for the failure to bring Snowden back to the U.S."

That's how screwed up the US system is: when Obama doesn't actively do something wrong, like seek disproportionate and inappropriate responses to whistle-blowing, he is criticized for it by his opponents.

If I thought that the Obamas and the Paul Ryans [1] of the world wanted Snowden for the selling of secrets and not for leaking them to journalists, maybe I'd think a bit differently on this issue. As it is, though, it's hard for me to see this as anything other than punishing someone for exposing a critical piece of the completely unethical surveillance state that has been built up around us.

BTW, this also gets at why I'm not so happy with Greenwald as of late, either: the only electorally viable opposition that Obama has wants him to be more proactive in punishing whistleblowers, not less. Voting for and even electorally supporting Obama isn't the same as ignoring this travesty, not is it condoning what Obama has done against whistleblowers in the past. Rather, it's how some people are attempting to make a few things better in a deeply fucked-up system.

So, I'm loving GitHub. I used it to redo my personal website (www.cgranade.com), as I find plaintext editing and `git commit -a -m $MESSAGE; git push` much easier than working with Google Sites. Jekyll's a really nice engine for simple, clean, static sites.

I have been staying off G+ for quite some time, due to the preponderance of truly hateful trolls that have decided to infest my feed. There's a lot of good people on here, but the mental effort that it takes to respond to, or even to ignore, the sheer litany of misogynistic, racist and otherwise hateful bullshit that people post has been a bit more than I've felt up to expending.

That said, I do feel that the Zimmerman aquittal demands that I break silence here, that I say a few words. First and foremost, however, if you feel like celebrating in any way that a self-admitted murderer got away without justice being served, I want absolutely nothing more to do with you.

I simply do not have space in my life to entertain people that celebrate murder, much less racially-motivated murder. Second, this is my post, in my feed, and I decide what I will and will not give my space to— if you attempt to turn my feed in any way into a of this aquittal, you will be blocked. Period. If you whine about this being an infringement of "free speech," thus demonstrating a wanton misunderstanding of the concept of free speech, you will also be blocked. I simply don't have the time to waste on people that would pervert fundamental freedoms in such a way.

As for the aquittal itself, it feels like a cop-out to start from the assumption that the Zimmerman acquittal was legal, but that the laws are bad (in particular, Stand Your Ground). SYG is a terrible law, but the way juries seem to work there, it only gets you acquitted if you're white: the black woman in Florida that fired a warning shot in a domestic abuse situation got 20 years. (If you agree that this is a travesty of justice, maybe you should sign this petition for her pardon: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/pardon-marissa-alexander/ClsrnjQs.)

SYG is definitely a problem, and should be repealed in every state it has been enacted in, but racist juries, lawyers and judges are also a problem. To assume that the acquittal was perfectly legal shuts out the possibility of a racial component, but that was quite obviously at play here.___

Check out the update. Machine learning algorithms have ethical and social consequences, and it's important to respond quickly and appropriately when such consequences are discovered or pointed out.

Changing my gender to male on Google+ improved my What's Hot experience Google+ has updated how they distribute content to users through Explore

Earlier today, +Kimberly Chapman told me about a little experiment she'd done. She'd opened a tab on her browser and directed it to plus.google.com/explore, a stream that enables you to see the hottest content on Google+. In another tab, Chapman changed her gender on her Google+ profile from female to male, and then loaded the Explore page into another tab.

The difference was astonishing. "As a girl, I get stupid warm-fuzzy meaningless shit," Chapman writes on a post (http://goo.gl/ZDBxT). "As a guy, I get nerdy stuff. This is not okay. I get that [What's Hot] algorithms are based on what people click, like, share, comment on, etc. Fine. But I challenge anyone to give me one good reason why there should be such a drastic difference in less than ten seconds by simply changing my gender, other than institutionalized sexism about what girls and guys apparently like."

I tried the experiment myself just a moment ago. Below are ten posts that graced my screen, organized into pairs. I have paired them based on their placement on my stream and no other factors. The example image shown below, for instance, shows a post with a quote and one with a bar graph -- the quote was the fifth post on my Explore stream when I was female and the bar graph was the fifth post on my Explore stream when I was male.

Note that I have not changed anything other than my profile. And despite my extensive interaction with the social network, when I'm female, gadgets might as well not exist. When I was male, I saw two posts referencing #io13 , but there was no mention of the event when I was female. In fact, the closest thing to tech news I got as a female was an article about how to become an influencer on Pinterest. Needless to say, this article didn't show up when I was male.

Neither did the nausea-inducing feel-good quotes on pictures. 

+Yonatan Zunger, Chief Architect of Google+, responded to the issue, saying: "What's Hot is based both on properties inherent to the post -- how people have reacted to it when they saw it, +1's, reshares, and so on -- and on properties of the viewer, especially profile info. Gender is one of those signals, as are quite a few other things. From what I can tell, gender is having a relatively large effect on the result set, because our models (based on people's actual responses to seeing these things) seem to show a pretty sharp gender difference in response."

He agreed the model is too gender sensitive, adding that a team is currently working on content recommendations that better reflect individual user preferences. He assures users that "there was no human editing to say that women like X and men like Y."

UPDATE: At 13:08 Pacific, Zunger commented on this post saying that   further discussion with the What's Hot team has revealed that the system that populates Explore is using an old-generation algorithm, which is known to have been very gender sensitive.

"The system that populates the actual What's Hot posts you see in your [Home] stream is the more modernized system, with a lot more subtlety in its model, and it does not have the same level of gender sensitivity," Zunger added. "It's still aware of it, but it's a small feature, not a big one."

Google+ plans to upgrade Explore to the new algorithm. Thank you, Google+ team for being responsive about this issue. We look forward to seeing how this algorithm continues to evolve to serve us more and more of the content each of us wants.___Check out the update.

Over the last year I've worked with some awesome folks (+Kester Tong  +Mark Sandler, +Corinna Cortes , +Matthew Turk,  +Gideon Mann  +Arnaud Sahuguet, +Adam Berenzweig) to understand how people collaborate on data analysis and to build better tools to support them. Yesterday, with the help of +Fernando Perez and +Wes McKinney we revealed this work at PyCon APAC.

We've created an interactive, collaborative analytics tool by integrating Google Docs, Chrome, and IPython. You can open a notebook from Drive. You can share notebooks like you would share a Google Doc. You can comment and edit collaboratively, in realtime. There is zero setup, because all the computation happens in Chrome. You can even quickly and easily package your analytics pipeline into a GUI for folks that don't want to program. In effect, you can go from zero to analytics with little impedance.

What's even better is that you can build on our work. It will all be open source on top of public Google APIs. We'll have a larger Google Research blog post about this work when we release the code and the Chrome application.___

I'm a bit confused about Babel (that is, new Hangouts) and XMPP. From poking around a bit with Empathy, connecting to talk.google.com via XMPP, messages posted to and received from Babel still seem to show up via XMPP, suggesting that interop may still be a thing. On the other hand, I can no longer see S2S XMPP contacts via G+, while I can still see them on Gmail.

If Google allows XMPP to continue being a protocol for accessing Babel, then I think that's a fine path forward. If, however, they disable S2S features, that's a real shame.

Fascinating. I'm looking forward to seeing more high quality gaming on Android, especially if it means that we'll see better input mechanisms than touchscreens becoming more prevalant.

Fascinating. I love the use of IPython to present the results, too!

(BTW, I am more amused than I should be at the name of the function increment_gender.)

This is really neat analysis of what words are associated with men versus women in a week's worth of New York Times articles. It includes a step-by-step explanation of how the analysis was done in Python, along with relevant code snippets.___Fascinating. I love the use of IPython to present the results, too!
