Alex Grossman27,422Last time I shared a relevancy circle was back in July. From then until now (October 19), it's only changed by 7 people, and most but not all of that was near the end of the list. So, it's remarkably consistent.These 99 users are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself, so a total of 100). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is definitely more accurate now than last time. Does the algorithm get better over time due to more data? I still suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd still be curious and interested to learn more about it.Anyway, these people are relevant to me and truly help me enjoy my time sharing, talking, discussing, and hanging out on G+. So, thank you to all of you :)TGIF and have a great start to the weekend!P.S. - Typical inconsistent G+ - I could share the Movie Lovers Circle earlier today with about 130 people being notified. However, by mid-morning I couldn't notify the 99 people in this Circle. Now, I can again. But it appears that instead of setting a limit on the number of people in a circle, maybe they've set a limit on the number of people you could notify in a set period of time? Very strange. If anybody has any clue as to why this is, please let me know.2012-10-20 03:24:2710023124CC G+
AJ Durling294This is a bonus circle, and is actually pretty much where I started when I was creating my first circles - Top 500 PlussersIt is the people with the highest number of users - and is actually now only 308 people. When I first collected the Top 500 Plussers on Google+, I spend a lot of time weeding out the people whose posts in which I didn't particularly have an interest (e.g. almost all of the photographers - nothing against people who post photos to G+, it's just me: this is Google+, not Flickr; people who only ever promote themselves - so quite a lot of the pop musicians). The list that is left are people who, I think, actually contribute to the stream. You may find some surprising choices (Dolly Parton?! Actually, yes!). But I hope you enjoy it.I've kept the name Top 500 even though it is a lot fewer than 500. I like the irony... #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #celebrity   #topcircles  2012-10-19 15:06:56307302CC G+

Alexander Becker10,021As part of a pattern-analyzing experiment, and to examine the origins of "relevance," I am sharing my Top 99 circleSome observations —Robert Scoble is in my top 99, for no apparent reasons other than I circled him. "Relevance" does seem to come for people or pages I never interacted with apart from leaving the occasional +1. Also, mentioning someone repeatedly seems to increase relevance, for me, e.g. +Project Glass . Interestingly, mentioning without even having visited the Project Glass page is enough to make it relevant for me. While this makes sense, since I've written about it repeatedly, I can see a strong vector to game relevance this way.+Moritz Tolxdorff  and +Amanda Blain  deserve the credit for this endeavour —Want to create your own?► Click circles on the tab on the right► Make sure relevance is selected (default)► Select the top 99 users. (Drag a box around them)► Drag the whole group to "drop here to create new circle"► The new circle will open up. Make sure its 99 and adjust it if needed► Share it and use the hashtag #top99  and #sharedcircles   #top99   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  +Shared Circles on G+    +Nothing but Circles   +Public Circles   +CircleCount  +Full Circle If you got notified you are one of the 99 :-)2012-07-26 08:30:569934029CC G+

Kyle Beck66So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+

So the FCC's boss, Tom Wheeler, a former cable and mobile industry henchman, is moving to end pretty much all semblance of Net Neutrality. The betrayal isn't Wheeler's; it's Obama's, whose promises to support an open Internet were -- like so many others -- empty if not outright lies.

The greed of Big (and Little) Pharma knows no bounds. Now they're jacking up the prices of generic drugs to astronomical heights -- screwing the public once again.

The NSA defines "foreign" as pretty much anyone it likes, as the Washington Post's latest Snowden bombshell explains.

Oh, and no shock at all, the government has been lying through its teeth about all this.

Ubuntu gurus, a question:

I have a new laptop, preloaded with Windows 7, and want to install Ubuntu next to it. I've shrunk the Win7 partition using GParted.

My question is whether I can encrypt the Linux partition and still be able to install the OS in the encrypted volume, getting the equivalent of full-disk encryption. Is there a way to do this?

What Larry Lessig and his team are doing is one of the most important initiatives in recent American history: They're trying to force some reform in a political system where money equals access and speech -- where, let's be clear, money buys the law.

They've passed a vital financial milestone. Now, as they note, comes the hard work.

The news media rely on advocates to do a lot of the reporting that ends up being part of journalism. Here's an example to come: The ACLU in Massachusetts has been investigating an egregious situation -- SWAT teams have been "semi-privatized" and are hiding their records from public inspection. This is beyond outrageous, and the ACLU has filed suit to get what should obviously be public records.

Look for news coverage when/if they pry loose the information. Too bad, in this case, that news organizations couldn't be bothered to do the work themselves.

What will you miss when you quit Facebook?

(I'm linking to this from both Facebook and Twitter, so if you accuse me of pushing Facebook here I'll look at you strange).

+Chuq Von Rospach says in a few days he'll be leaving Facebook in a post on Facebook. Of course you have to be on Facebook to read this post: https://www.facebook.com/chuqui/posts/10152117353196881

I almost want to argue with him and get him not to leave, but I really won't lose that much. I'll still have him on Google+ and on Twitter, so I won't miss his bird photos anyway.

Instead, it made me think about what you WILL miss when you leave Facebook. So, let's go at it.

Yes, you're Facebook's lab rat, and you helped make it happen. But it's more complicated than that -- and it all comes back to who controls our communications (increasingly not us), as I say at Talking Points Memo.

The re-centralization of our communications and commerce isn't just a net neutrality issue. It should also worry us that the payment systems, which are nearly unaccountable, act in capricious and political ways -- and we have little or no recourse.

The ScotusBlog is the first place I -- and countless others -- turn to for what's happening in the Supreme Court. The troglodytes who issue the court's press credentials are traditional media people (members of the Senate accreditation committee).

You've guessed it. they've denied ScotusBlog credentials to cover the court. In the proces they embarrassing the entire journalism craft.

I have a Logitech "Anywhere MX" mouse that has developed an annoying problem -- double click on single button press. This is apparently a well-known flaw in the mouse that tends to appear after a while. The supposed fix is to take out the batteries and click/hold the buttons, but the problem reappears quickly.

So I'm looking for a new mouse from another vendor. What do folks recommend? (Feel free to repost this.)

Well, Amazon's "Fire Phone" is easily the ultimate (so far) spy-on-the-customer device I've seen. The mobile industry is in a race to see who can persuade us to adopt the most invasive technology. I'm leaning more and more toward drastic countermeasures, which won't fully protect my privacy but will help.

Good to hear that some serious security folks may resurrect TrueCrypt. But they need help. -- from users' contributions and especially from charitable foundations that care about security and privacy.

I contributed to TrueCrypt a while back, when I was doing research for a new book and discovered it was the only cross-platform application for this kind of security. I'll contribute again if asked.

So the FCC's boss, Tom Wheeler, a former cable and mobile industry henchman, is moving to end pretty much all semblance of Net Neutrality. The betrayal isn't Wheeler's; it's Obama's, whose promises to support an open Internet were -- like so many others -- empty if not outright lies.
