Danial Hallock10,323No Name NeededIt's getting close to the Holiday Season, and the whole point of this particular part of the season is to "give thanks" to the people (or, in America, things) that have positively impacted your life.  For me, these are those people.You all should remember my initial circle The Three Hundred (http://goo.gl/kqE8h) which was well received at 251 +1s and 48 reshares.  This circle was my first round of hyper-vetting individuals for circling, based on a lot of criteria that was centered around high quality content and a high level of engagement.  I think I combed through about 2,300 profiles on a one-by-one basis before arriving at the final product.That circle then morphed into the The Collaborative Circle (http://goo.gl/Ex9ai) which was less publicized, but still racked in 90 +1s and 13 reshares.  This circle was based on the premise that "If four people from The Three Hundred enjoy person X, then I should also enjoy them."  Well, the combination of these circles lead to an interesting scenario in which I was able to locate all stars through a combination of overlap and relevance (via Google algorithms).  Out popped these twenty five individuals, and I could not be happier with the results.  These are twenty-five individuals in which I am subscribed, their posts are always enjoyable as well as insightful, and the notification stream keeps me engaged throughout the day.Whether you're looking at the tech news from +Mike Elgan, the social and scientific commentary of +Yonatan Zunger, or the general internet awesomeness that is the enigma of +Sarah Rios, you're not going to be disappointed.I normally only notify people that are contained within a circle, but these people are too awesome not to be guilty of a little plus-spam;  feel free to request a removal from the notified (all) circles.(Link to this post: http://goo.gl/AlsXG5) #nonameneeded   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #sharedcircle  2013-11-13 23:53:242639671CC G+

Danial Hallock6,447The Power of FiveFor the next five months, I will be taking the last five circles shared by five individuals and comparing them against one another for people who appear multiple times.  After all, we all have circles that we routinely share because we think the people in them are awesome, so if we all end up sharing the same people, then we all agree that they're awesome, right? This month, I took the following people and put their last five created and shared (not transitive shares) circles into one circle per person (e.g all five of +martin shervington's circle went into one circle).  I then hovered over each and every one of the individuals in those circles and my own (300: http://goo.gl/kqE8h) and for every person that appeared in 3 or more (50% or more) of the circles, I added them to this collaborative circle.This month is:+martin shervington+Armando Lioss +Cesare Riccardo +Carter Gibson +Kurt Smith These five sponsors provided about 19 circles and 1,400 people; and the resulting 58 people were endorsed by at least fifty percent of the sponsors.Next month, I'll add to this circle the collaborative efforts of:+Kate Savage +Euro Maestro +Mike Elgan +Dede Craig King +Stephanie Van Pelt  #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #thepoweroffive   #collaborativecircle  2013-05-02 16:19:355916110CC G+
Danial Hallock6,447The Bible in 365This is the only time that this circle will be shared publicly, because this project will take place through a community setting.  I'll be working on setting up the community here in the next few weeks and invites/meta-updates will be sent directly to this circle.The reason I'm sharing this circle is (a) I like these people and (b) this is a last-call for inclusion on this project.  If you would like to join this project (which is detailed here:  http://goo.gl/EAFFD) then please post below and I will add you to this circle.  If I've added you to this circle in error, then please post below and I will remove you from it.If you're just wanting to read, and not participate, then don't worry.  I will be posting content to the community and sharing it through my stream via Extended Circles. These shares will be locked and disabled so I don't have to manage conversations in multiple places. Inclusion in this circle just gets you an invite to the community and you can determine your level of participation from there.I'm pretty excited about this, and I hope you are too. #bible365   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring  2013-05-02 14:29:5936605CC G+
Danial Hallock6,197The Three Hundred"Completed" CopyAs most of you probably know by now, I have been working on a #circlemanagement  project for quite some time now, in which I sought to increase the vetting process that occurs when I add people to my circles.  As most of you also know, I've been absolutely swamped and have barely had time to share content (let alone post my own or curate circles), so it's taken me a while to get here.However, after only six months to the day (lucky coincidence) I've managed to finish what I would consider a mostly-complete copy of this circle.  You can see the vetting process and the history of it here (http://goo.gl/kqE8h), and as always I encourage you to add and share this circle as you see fit!If you're notified, you're in it!  If you do not wish to be included in any future circle shares, please let me know via private message. #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #engagers  2013-04-20 13:17:463019914101CC G+

Pam Adger22,892This circle represents 50 of the people I would love to hang out with one on one for a day or seven. I don’t believe in huge circle shares and this circle is twice the size of most I share but I just couldn't make it smaller. I did leave out some people who never post publicly because you wouldn't benefit from circling them. I am amazed that I had to limit this to 50. 2012-12-31 18:28:305034026CC G+

Carter Gibson628,961The Lifeblood of my Google+ ExperienceThe people in this circle (and I'm sure I've forgotten some of you!) are some of the most amazing people I've ever interacted with, online or off or both! I could not recommend this circle more highly. They're artists, bloggers, business owners, and the list goes on and on. Something they all share is that they are amazing people who I would do a favor for in a heartbeat. If you want to surround yourself with good people, this is an excellent circle to add. So, go on and circle up :)2012-11-30 21:16:131491251997CC G+
Dave Tozier0+Danial Hallock originally shared this post:The Three HundredRevised CopyIt's been about a month since my last share of #thethreehundred  so I wanted to share the revised copy of the circle; and true to my word, there have been a lot of revisions in the last month.For example, I've gone through each and every one of the 200 some odd recommendations and circle shares that came about from the last circle share.  As a result, of the original 297 that were shared a little under a month ago (http://goo.gl/xqGb4), I removed approximately 137 300ers and added 129 new members.  You can expect this circle to continue to change, but I think the triple digit adjustments are mostly done.  For those of you just joining us, this is a continuation of a project where I've been changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream?  Remember: #sharingiscaring  (Link to this post: http://goo.gl/cHwht)2012-11-20 17:22:28295000CC G+

Logan Cate0My most relevant G+ circle. Inspired by +Carter Gibson, this is a circle of the people I love interacting with. You'll find all sorts in here, from tech geeks to movie lovers to photographers to the "just plain awesome" people I've found here on G+. With one or two exceptions, I don't think I've met any of these people. But I'd gladly do so, any time, any place. And really, I'm hoping to. That's how cool these folks are. If your stream needs any spicing up, or you just want to check that you're following all the right people, grab this circle. ;)2012-07-23 23:27:039914213CC G+

Danial Hallock (Kysimir)0Tell Me SomethingMy final circle share for hopefully a long time (they're exhausting)!  This is my engager's circle, and as you can see, unlike most "top engagers" circles, it contains significantly less than five hundred people.  Part of that is because, in large part, the people in my No Name Needed circle (http://goo.gl/P69EF) are my top engagers.  I'm also fairly new to Google Plus, so I'm still locating all of the superb engagers (feel free to recommend people below).However, these posters are all individuals that I have interacted with on some level and we've either interacted enough or I've seen them interact with others enough to know that they are, beyond a doubt, "superb engagers" who enjoy commenting on your posts or replying to your thoughts as much as they do creating their own content.Enjoy! #circleshare   #engagers   #engagement   #sharingiscaring  2012-06-23 14:04:06197010CC G+

Kevin Medeiros3,101Yeah yeah, this is a huge circle to share. These guys and girls are a bunch of geeks. Geeks of what type you might ask? Well, of all sorts..you'll just have to find out. I've gone through and weeded out some of the inactive users myself in order to stay under the 500 person limit. These guys make up a big portion of my stream and never fail to keep me informed about awesome shit.You may also be asking why I didn't sort them out into sub-geek categories? The answer to that is because I'm not your damn secretary :-)Just check'em out :)2012-05-26 19:20:2947711714CC G+

After several years of running Linux, +Lynea Tomlinson felt that she was ready to take the plunge into the +Arch Linux world.  It took a bit of finagling to get UEFI "Secure Boot" turned off "for real", but we managed it.

Now I just need to convert her to Vim ;P

After several years of running Linux, +Lynea Tomlinson felt that she was ready to take the plunge into the +Arch Linux world.  It took a bit of finagling to get UEFI "Secure Boot" turned off "for real", but we managed it.

Now I just need to convert her to Vim ;P

[Helping the cause]

In an effort to help out with the server load that +Ikey Doherty has been trying to manage, I've created an FTP server on my domain that will feature ISO releases of Evolve OS.

For now, the process is manual as Ikey is locking down the release schedule and also working on rsync stuffs, so the FTP server will be a bit behind his master server.

You can access the server via anonymous FTP here:

ftp://dev.brianctomlinson.com/isos/evolve-os/

A package repository will be setup sometime this week or next.  I'll post here when it's available for use.

[Sure, now I get a OnePlue invite...]

When the OnePlus One was first announced, I thought it would be my next phone.  Then, they pulled their invite stunt and I got impatient, instead purchasing an LG G3.  I'm very happy with my decision to get the G3 and have no need for the OnePlus One.  If you want the invite link, let me know and we'll talk.


So here's the deal:

If you can say something funny using a programming language (and what you "say" executes successfully without errors) then I'll email you the invite link this evening (my timezone [GMT+2:00]) after I've reviewed the submissions.  Your code submission should be in the form of a GitHub Gist, just paste the link in the comments below and I'll review it.

Good luck!

EDIT: Congratulations to +Andy Lin for winning the invite!He i... more »

[LG G Watch: The Work Day]


As many of you know, yesterday I received my LG G Watch and despite 3 (minor) negative points, fell in love with it and its possibilities within a few hours.  But that was "sit at home and peel off the plastic" time, the time at which I carefully remove all "protective" plastics, perform initial setup, and start toying with devices.  Today I had the benefit of being able to go through a fairly typical work day, with one minor exception, I turned off Pushbullet notifications on my laptop so as to be forced to rely on the watch for notices and alerts.

Typically, I start my day reading emails and catching up on social media via my phone, then talking to my wife before heading out to wait for the bus going into Stavanger Sentrum.  This didn't change much, except that instead of pulling out my phone to absorb and thendi... more »

[Initial thoughts on the LG G Watch]

I received my LG G Watch today after having ordered it this weekend and in just the few hours that I've spent with it, I'm in love!

Some things to note:

1. It's not nearly as big as you think: At the risk of sounding immature, "I've had bigger."  So far as build goes, my wrists are pretty average.  This watch doesn't feel at all cumbersome and is much lighter than previous watches I've owned.

2. The screen provides plenty of real-estate: Call it the foresight of the Google devs that worked on Android Wear or the planning in LG's hardware department or both, but I don't find myself having a difficult time reading the notifications or interacting with events on the screen.  Touch events are registered just where I expect them to be registered and nothing looks cluttered.... more »

It's been how long since they figured this out and yet, Outlook still has this problem of sending J's for anyone not using the WingDings font (which is pretty much everyone, save for those that are forced into it).

Obviously a standard needs to be created for such things.  Oh, wait, there is already a collection of RFC's that deal with all issues Internet Messaging: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2046, http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2822, http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2048, and http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2049

Here are some more images that I took at Utstein Kloster earlier today.  In my opinion, these are the best ones :)

I really like the camera on the LG G3.  To me, the pictures appear to be more "crisp" in their detail and light is handled more to my taste.

I just watched this documentary about Aaron Swartz and am very very impressed. It shows the positive impact a young great mind can have and how justice departments and lawmakers are struggling to differentiate between tech being harmful and tech improving people's lives. Highly recommended to watch!
(tip to actually watch it: save it in YouTube's "watch later", and then sit back and cast it to a TV when you have time for the full thing)

With over 70 articles to choose from, you know you want to buy something - come on...

Honestly what a store, choose any of my fantastic shots, or, see something but it is 'close' - then ask for a custom shot at a negotiated price differential - you name it... most of these shots can be changed - or have others that are close in nature and can be replicated.

[Our tank is complete]

We've wanted an aquarium for a while and +Lynea Tomlinson asked me for one for her birthday.  We started with a small, 15 liter BiOrb and a red Platy and have since moved up to a 128 liter aquarium that is home to:

1. 1 Red Platy
2. 1 Black Moor Goldfish
3. 1 Fantail (Calico) Goldfish
4. 1 Zebra Danio
5. 1 Sailfin Plecostomus
6. 13 Endler's (Red Flame/Hybrid K) Livebearers
7. An assortment of freshwater plants.

Most of the fish came with the larger tank (thanks to a Finn.no member who was looking to get rid of the tank, fish, plants, rocks, and filter).  The Red Platy and the two goldfish were purchased by us before we got the larger tank.  The Endler's fish were a bit of a surprise, someone had babies right before my wife picked up the aquarium and if I'm not mistaken, we've got moreinc... more »

[LG G3 Notes: Battery Life]

I haven't charged my phone in almost 24 hours and it's got more than 50% battery.  Since yesterday, I've been using it to check Google+ and reply to notifications, play content from Netflix onto my Chromecast, control the volume on my TV, check email, and send messages to my wife (she's out hiking right now).  This is how I define "light" usage.  When it does finally die (phone shut-off due to no power), I'll recharge it and go through my more typical day's usage and post up some screenshots.  Then, for my final round of battery testing, I'll spend a day playing Ingress to see how it performs.

I'm really impressed with this phone so far!

[LG G3 Notes on battery life]

Charged to 100%, put on some headphones, took a nap for about 3 hours, checked battery life. Only dropped 4% in 3 hours with the screen off? This thing officially beats my S4 on the "day 1 music test" for battery life.

[Hooray for new phones!]

Just picked up my LG G3 (32GB) and am thoroughly enjoying it so far.  It's close enough to the stock Google experience, yet supplemented so tastefully by LG that I'm not feeling nearly as strong an urge to root it as I have with my past phones.

The most striking feature so far is that, coming from a Samsung Galaxy S4, the G3 doesn't "feel" bigger than my S4 even though I know I have half an inch of extra screen real-estate as well as the fact that it doesn't feel like I'm going to break it with one-handed operation (I have big hands).

My wife got one as well to replace her Sony Xperia Z1, so the kids are happy because they finally have proper cell phone service as well as some nice upgrades from their old Verizon Galaxy Nexus phones (they were using WiFi only).

Anywho, hopefully the screenshots are... more »

[Get this game!]

Seriously, I've been playing it for 6 hours over the last couple of days thanks to recommendations from two friends, +Justin Brown and +Jessi Mon'e.

Let's put it this way, we've all wanted to be starship captains of some sort; Mal, Jean-Luc Picard, Han Solo, etc.  This game can give you that dream, sort of.  Imagine a game where from the get-go, you could be blown up in an instant.  Either the enemy is too well equipped or solar flares, asteroids, ion bursts, etc, get you.  Now, imagine that the game gets progressively harder with each new sector.  Got that? Now imagine going up against a flagship of the enemy and realizing your super-awesomesauce upgrades for your ship were poor choices, you should have bumped up your shields, or amassed a larger crew for that boarding assault.  The next time you try to complete the mission (from thestart!... more »

[Hooray for games :)]

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP finds its way easily into my list of favorite games.  I bought this as part of a Humble Bundle a couple of years ago and never played it due to distractions.  Now that I'm on vacation, I decided to take some time out to sit down and play some of the games I have in my +Steam library but haven't actually played, or simply to play some games that I miss playing.

The graphics are simple, but beautiful and the soundtrack is awesome.  I was telling my good friend, +Samuel Nelson, via Steam that it's a very calming soundtrack, even when it ramps up to warn you of impending danger.

If you like beautiful games with very relaxed gameplay that focus more on ambiance and storytelling than action and tropes, give this one a shot.

[Fjord Tour: Lysefjord to Preikestolen]

For my first official day on vacation, we took a fjord tour to Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock).  Here are some of the best pictures that I managed to take.

What's amazing to me is that I live and work so close to all of this beauty.  The tour boat picked us up near my office and within a very short period of time, we were already seeing some amazing things.  This trip has made me realize that I'd like to get a boat of my own sooner rather than later :)

[Laziness to not-so-awesomeness]

Because I felt like looking up my +reddit Cake Day and didn't feel like using the browser to get it, I ended up writing a little (two function) library.

My laziness (if you can call that laziness) ended up providing my IRC bot with a new feature.  Now, users in my IRC channel can search for their Cake Day with a simple command:

!cakeday $USER
>> Reddit Cake Day for $USER is: $DATE

#FatherhoodFriday

I'm seeing so many men tiptoe around or avoid the topics around the #yesallwomen movement and I thought that something needed to be said. I've seen women say that men should only be listening and not speaking. Well, they're half right, we should be listening twice as much as we speak, but we absolutely should be speaking on it and I have something to say to a specific group of people, fathers and daughters.

Here goes...   Dads, #yesallwomen who are your daughters not only deserve to have your opinion on all of this, they need it. Don't ever let anyone shame or guilt you into thinking you have nothing to say!
