Be a strong contributor and participant on the Google+ platform. That's it, that's all. Just be a great google+ netizen.You don't have to be rich, famous or pretty LOL. I built this circle and stream to help Nooglers meet new people, learn new things, hear different perspectives, encounter someone you may never have had the courage to speak to live in person. Trust me, just reach out and comment on a post of someone you appreciate, You'll be amazed how happy people are to engage with you, once you've had the courage to reach out, so like Nike says, JUST DO IT! Please see some of my favorite posts from the last week below. 1.

Gideon Rosenblatt23,489Social Media FolksIt's been a long time since I shared a circle, and particularly since I shared this one. I'm just curious to see what happens these days when you share a circle. This one is made up of people involved in social media. Most of the circling I did for this was in the first half of 2012, so it will tend to be people who've been here for a while. 2013-01-30 15:55:0823211421CC G+

AJ Durling0This 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+

Kyle Beck0So, 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+

Alister Macintyre7,115Some people appear to be well informed on many topics, and like to share what they have figured out.  Here is a circle of prolific writers about tech topics.  You might want to put some of them in separate circles, to avoid being washed away in combination streams into a roaring torrent of information.2012-06-09 23:29:01244010CC G+

Gideon Rosenblatt13,064Updated Social Media / Social Networks CircleThis circle is made up of people who spend a significant portion of their week working on social media and social networks - as part of their job - either consulting on it or writing about it. This is an update of a circle I shared in March, adding 30+ people and removing a few. This circle is fairly large, so it's aimed at people who are interested in following social media and are just ramping up here on Google+. Here's what I can tell you about this circle:* It has a bunch of really good people in it; lots of intelligence on the topic of social media. * It's 90% people actually working on social media, but there was a week or two that I temporarily opened it up to also include people who were just interested in social media. I then tightened the criteria back up, but didn't go back and try to pull out those folks who were just interested in it. It's by far the minority of people in this circle though. Most are actually working with social media as part of their job. * Sharing this circle may end up causing me a lot of headaches with some people wondering why they weren't included. Again - the filter here is "people working in social media." So please keep that in mind, and accept my apologies in advance if I neglected to tag you properly for inclusion in this circle. I'll be sharing it again in the future, so feel free to let me know (nicely please). Also, let me know if I'm missing key folks besides yourself. Thank you. OK. That's it. Enjoy this group. I do. #socialmedia #socialnetworks2012-05-17 01:46:21220262234CC G+
Louis Gray115,286Shared Circle: Engaging Women On Google+Last night +Daria Musk highlighted the top 50 women on Google+ who bring great content to her stream. As you can imagine, all users of Google+ bring unique value, but what I've found from having a circle dedicated to some of the great women on Google+, even as that circle has grown to hundreds, is incredible diversity and discovery of new interests.That's not to say men are boring... but... I digress. Here is my updated circle of great ladies on Google+. Add as many or as few as you like, and be prepared for some fantastic content and smart people.2012-04-13 17:44:35382272254CC G+

Robert Scoble1,146,151Here are 500 of my favorite Tech Journalists, bloggers, and pundits. I'm sharing this since I am seeing lots of new people coming over and I'm sure they are looking for some great people to circle here. Unfortunately I can't share everyone that I have in this circle (I have 575 in this circle on my screen, but Google+ only lets me share 500 with you). Lots of interesting tech bloggers and journalists here. Hope you enjoy. This is the circle that starts my morning every day.Speaking of Tech News, I'm off to +VMware. They are announcing new Cloud Foundry stuff this morning. So, you'll probably see some tech news from the folks in this circle.2012-04-11 16:01:035005737106CC G+

Gabriel Fitzpatrick3,746Writers CircleA couple people have asked me to share a circle of writers because there apparently aren't enough of those. This is the first full one, and contains most of the writers whose posts and content I've found interesting and engaging (or at very least who haven't been so insufferable as to warrant an uncircling ^.^) If you aren't here, you may very well be in the second one. Don't jump to any conclusions :)2012-03-26 22:19:06499983CC G+

If you know the G+ Men to Women ratio.... you know there are too few ladies out here so far. Add this circle to balance your stream a bit. There are some very interesting people in here. I left it at 400 to start in case I miss any ladies who want to be added. If I missed you and you would like to be in this circle... let me know. ....this circle includes 1 really cool guy.... the guy all these fantastic Ladies have in common2012-03-16 18:31:504001457CC G+

We need to talk: 26 awkward questions to ask news organizations about the move to digital

Great questions! Though this would require a bigger understanding of "digital" than most journalists I see possess. And with that I mean to even understand the questions deep enough in regards to analytics, tests and monetezation thinking ...

Can't read, won't buy

"56.2 percent of consumers say that the ability to obtain information in their own language is more important than price."
I would be interested if they really asked for the difference between "can read comfortably" or just "in my language". Nowadays it is about the languages you comfortably read - and even if you speak the language kinda fluently, it may be a barrier.

At the Edge of NGC 2174
Image Credit: +NASA, +European Space Agency, ESA, Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)

This fantastic skyscape lies near the edge of NGC 2174 a star forming region about 6,400 light-years away in the nebula-rich constellation of Orion. It follows mountainous clouds of gas and dust carved by winds and radiation from the region's newborn stars, now found scattered in open star clusters embedded around the center of NGC 2174, off the top of the frame. Though star formation continues within these dusty cosmic clouds they will likely be dispersed by the energetic newborn stars within a few million years. Recorded at infrared wavelengths by the Hubble Space Telescope, the interstellar scene spans about 6 light-years. The image celebrates the upcoming 24th anniversary of Hubble's launch onboard the space shuttle... more »

Meet Cortana, Microsoft's new take on competition

I think the triggers, access to backend information on the user and especially the third party access / integration will be major features of this release.  And one should not dismiss the relevance of mobile through computer to living room connection Microsoft already can make use of. 

_Microsoft has seen what Apple and Google have done, wrapping some of the best ideas from Siri and Google Now into one attractive, easy-to-use interface — but now, the real trick will be to leverage Xbox, Windows, and Microsoft’s other products to get Cortana everywhere.  ... _
The company has an always-on microphone in millions of houses through Kinect, hundreds of millions of computers running Windows, and a healthy new attitude toward iOS. For now, Cortana lives in your pocket, but her voice might soon be everywhere.

Microsoft's announcement is so much more than just Office for ipad ...

Despite all "oh my god, it is office for ipad!!" there actually was more to the webcast than just that. I am still astonished how few reports are there for this part of the messaging, and how many 'just' went for the office part. 

The suite has three key elements:

Identity and access management delivered by Azure Active Directory Premium
Mobile Device Management and Mobile Application Management delivered by Windows Intune
Data protection delivered by Azure AD Rights Management Services

People seem to forget that Microsoft also has a strong hold in the gaming side of things plus a lot of non company people using office 365 Home. Which, in case you don't remember, comes with house hold licencing and login.

Iteration with Hip Hop - turntable stlye

Fail fast, fail often. Find a technics turntable. Experiment with silk, polyester, then felt ... Go change the world of hiphop. 

I was just pulling the record out of the jacket. It had crayon marks all over it! ...  And after I figured out the turntable, I would mark the record with a grease pencil or a crayon, where the break lived, and all the intersecting points. So when I wanted to repeat a break all I had to do is just watch how many times the intersecting line passed the tone arm.

»My quest to learn the Dvorak keyboard layout, part 1«

Given the speed I have in both english and german in typing on a querty keyboard and reading this article - I am not going anywhere near a Dvorak keyboard. ;))

It is bonkers how much work this is. I just took 40 minutes to type 300 words and ran out of patience about 250 words ago. Getting a letter wrong makes me want to throw a chair. The S key being on the other side of the keyboard, under a pinky… I mean.

See the joy on their faces when they understand what Kuo is telling them.

We are getting there: ER doctors use Google Glass and QR codes to identify patients

We are slowly getting to the point of where this tech can be really helpful. Not everybody is an ER doctor, but once you think beyond "oh glassholes!!" and "oh cute video of my kid" this is where I get excited about these things: To help in every day life.

Sure, things like battery life and connectivity are still a big problem, but next time you look at that personal computer in your pocket, try to remember where those things started ...

"When a clinician walks into an emergency department room, he or she looks at [a] bar code (a QR or Quick Response code) placed on the wall.

Science fiction to science facts?
I enjoyed the presentation of science fiction to facts  (and it makes me want to pull out books and films), but was  missing the aspect of inspiration: Maybe they are right so often because they inspired people to make it happen. Given that we can invent anything we set our mind to, maybe inventing something which somebody else already has thought out and showed us is easier, both to develop and get funding?

Anybody I know watching certain movies says "I want that. When can I get that??!!" - and if people would set up kickstarter and alike to even get closer to that idea, we would do it - thus making it more likely that this specific vision comes alive.

I love how we can see more and more of these interesting solutions to major problems and how the advancement of tech allows scientist to tackle bigger but also previously not doable research!

Imagine you’re on the edge of the Sahara Desert, trying to research the problem of desertification--the spread of new deserts onto farmland and into communities. You need data, but you’re facing thousands of miles of sand and rocks and temperatures that regularly reach 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Here’s one solution for gathering information: A tumbleweed-shaped robot that can travel for years using only wind power.

Novel idea - put the activity tracker on your ankle ... Kickstarter campaign for a less noticeable, less clunky gadget. ;)  Even more, this one also comes as waterproof and set up for real time data - from the look of the kickstarter campaign I can see a glass app coming next! . 

»Yes, the market for fitness trackers is a crowded one. Flyfit stands out from the pack as a device worn on the ankle, and unlike all the wristband trackers, it has the ability to measure leg movement. Furthermore Flyfit provides wireless synching to your smartphone with Bluetooth technology, so you can benefit from the knowledge of real-time data..«

Motivation is key: How Olympians Stay Motivated
“A lot of times before you physically give out, you give out mentally”

Interesting read and lots to gain from, also going along the lines of "consistency and work beats talent": 
With schedules like that, some of the most successful athletes aren’t necessarily the strongest or fastest, but simply the ones who are best at staying motivated.

“A lot of times before you physically give out, you give out mentally,”
said Thomas Hong, a high-school student and speed skater who placed 11th at the Olympic trials this year. “You know you're going to be sore for a while, you know how bad it's going to hurt you.”

Need more key combos'? There is a kickstarter for you: Shortcut-S

It may be easier for beginners, but for heavy users, it is not about memorizing any more but muscle memory ... then again, this is apple land, so maybe a special keyboard is more useful ;) 

SHORTCUT-S, for easier graphics and video editing, wondering how well this will work with stylus or bigger fingers? :)  And a thin keyboard may be not providing relevant haptical feedback? 

[I just replaced a new keyboard with another because I did not pay attention to the size of the function keys - the keys per se where great but the function keys not of normal size - the missing haptical response made me order another one right away.]

I hope this also means that more intelligent ad forms are coming to youtube - I will not sit through a 2:30 film as an advertisement if I want to watch a movie. There must be more in life than preroll and pop up ads.

The move is a sign that Google is focusing sharply on advertising at YouTube. Ms. Wojcicki has overseen Google’s outrageously profitable advertising, including successful new ad types for shopping and mobile.

Microsoft going local data, Injects $15M Into Foursquare

Uih - this is getting interesting ... esp. on their mobile advances with Windows Phone .... but also anything search with bing and by extension of this of course for Facebook and mobile data ....

On the commercial side, Microsoft inked a multi-year data-licensing agreement with Foursquare. As Fast Company outlined in our recent profile of the startup, Foursquare’s dataset is one of its most valuable (and often misunderstood) assets, powering a range of location services on popular apps, including Uber, Instagram, and Pinterest. These services tap into Foursquare’s free API to enable their users to tag locations, whether that means pegging an Instagram photo to a restaurant or helping an Uber driver find the exact spot for a pickup.

Rob Delany's text puts it front and center - every of such occasions is a wakeup call that your personal enemy has taken another success with somebody else and you better figure out how. 

So when someone ODs or kills themselves or crashes a car and dies due to their alcohol/drug use, I don’t say “C’est la vie…,” I say “Fuck that shit,” and I circle the wagons with my other survivor friends and we go over the battle plans a FIVE-HUNDREDTH time, figure out where our dead friend that we love and mourn deviated, and we prepare to greet the coming day in a manner that will give something other than our addictions a fair shot at killing us.

Transit Data is a good start but only part of the equation

Good points in the article about the combination of mobile / my daily life - even looking at it from a European "we actually do have working public transport" point of view. ;)

Yet Transit is only one part of the equation and needs to be put in context with the rest of it. Life got so much better when Google Now started having Berlin (and other cities) transit data. Recently I flew to Munich and the night before it automatically displayed me my temperature in Munich, my boarding pass, terminal and flight infos, and the info for the other flight from colleagues I searched for on my desktop. 

Once in Munich it displayed the information for the most likely travel, plus other information I needed. it also pinged me when I needed to get going back and once back in Berin I got updated data on this too -... more »
