Rob Möhlmann1,745Vanavond speelt Nederland om 18:00 uur zijn laatste groepswedstrijd tegen Chili. Vanaf 17:30 uur start ik een openbare hangout *(geen on air)* waar iedereen kan binnenvallen om mee te kletsen. *Let op!* Er is slechts plaats voor 10 mensen tegelijk dus als je niet binnenkomt is de hangout *VOL!* Probeer het dan later nog een keer omdat er gedurende de hangout mensen zullen komen en gaan. Om mee te doen is het belangrijk dat je dit evenement accepteert. *Om half zes verschijnt er automatisch een BLAUWE knop "DEELNEMEN" in dit evenement. Klik en je bent binnen!* Ik zal regelmatig screenshots maken en die delen in dit evenement. Ook zal ik laten weten wanneer er ruimte vrij komt. Voel je vrij om dit evenement te delen met je kringen. Immers, hoe meer zielen hoe meer vreugd!! *ZEGT HET VOORT! ZEGT HET VOORT! ZEGT HET VOORT!*LIVE WK HANGOUT2014-06-23 17:30:0010  
Claartje de Ridder3,672JA! Een nieuwjaarsborrel kunnen we het inmiddels niet meer noemen, maar tijd om elkaar weer te ontmoeten is het wat ons betreft zeker! We kunnen wederom terecht in Stairway to Heaven, en wel op donderdag 3 april vanaf 17.30 uur. *Hangout On Air* Ook dit keer is ie er weer, de HOA. Is er iemand die niet aanwezig kan zijn op de borrel, maar dit op afstand wil regelen en hosten, meld je dan bij +brendan thesingh . Brendan zorgt voor een beamer in Stairways. Wil je een donatie doen, je bedrijf promoten middels een x-bedrag in retour voor een eervolle vermelding, of zonder reden een rondje willen geven? Dan ben je meer dan welkom dit bij ons te melden, en kunnen we de opties bespreken. En je kunt natuurljk ook ter plekke beslissen een rondje te geven. Het wordt natuurlijk weer een hele leuke avond, zorg dat je er bij bent en meld je vast aan! We zijn ruim op tijd, heb je al iets staan die dag of de dag erna, moet je nog een oppas regelen? Dan heb je alle gelegenheid dit te doen! +Brendan Thesingh  zal de uitreiking van de Plusser van het jaar-verkiezing op zich nemen. *Hapjes/drankjes* Het is niet nieuw en velen van jullie weten het al: Er is helaas géén budget voor deze borrel. Je neemt, net als vorige keer, je eigen drankjes en hapjes af. *Vooraf eten:* Dit kan bij Stairways, je kunt er een prima burger of salade bestellen. Wil je vooraf een hapje eten, laat mij (+claartje de Ridder) dit dan even weten, icm met beschikbare capaciteit in Stairways. Ook hier geldt dat je direct moet betalen. Nb. Je kunt uiteraard ook prima de stad Utrecht in om ergens een hapje te eten.  *Missen we iemand?* Jij krijgt deze uitnodiging via Events. Mis jij iemand? Zet dit event dan door naar die persoon! we willen je ook te vragen dit event te delen met jouw (Nederlandse?) kringen.  Ten slotte we willen je vragen dit event zoveel mogelijk te delen via de andere platforms! *Organisatie:* +Claartje de Ridder en +Brendan Thesingh Google+ borrel NL2014-04-03 17:30:0039

Rob Möhlmann1,745*UITNODIGING* Op 1 september 2013 bereik ik de helft van 100, oftewel mijn 50ste levensjaar. Zelf kan ik het nog nauwelijks bevatten, maar het is heus waar.  Voor al mijn Google+ vrienden start ik op de avond van het feest een *LIVE* hangout on air waar iedereen die het leuk even binnen kan wippen. Ik plaats de camera op een strategische plek zodat je een leuk beeld krijgt van het feest. De bedoeling is dat mijn gasten die op mijn feestje zijn af en toe voor de camera verschijnen en even gedag zeggen. Om 00:00 doen we een proost!Rob meets Abraham2013-08-31 20:30:0015  
Google Plus World2,312Beste mensen, Een verjaardag laat je niet ongemerkt voorbij gaan: *27 juni bestaat Google+ alweer 2 jaar en dat willen we met z'n allen vieren.* Het verjaarsfeest zal, net als vorige keer, plaatsvinden in Utrecht, bij Stairways to Heaven aan de Mariaplaats. Gezien het feit dat de 27e op een donderdag is, en sommige mensen op vrijdag nog moeten werken of van verder komen, willen we rond 18.30 uur beginnen. *Hapjes en drankjes zijn wederom voor je eigen rekening.* Mocht je een rondje willen geven, dan ben je bij dezen natuurlijk van harte uitgenodigd dat vooral te doen! _Mensen die graag een donatie willen doen in de vorm van een verjaardagstaart of iets anders, laat het ons ook weten!_ Uiteraard zal er ook weer een Hangout gestart worden. Meer informatie omtrent deze Hangout wordt later bekend gemaakt.  Mocht je tijdens de verjaardag of ervoor nog een hapje willen eten, dan kan dat prima in Stairways. We hopen jullie allemaal te zien op 27 juni! +Arvid Bux en +Claartje de Ridder  _PS voor de mensen die goed opletten, eigenlijk is Google+ op 28 juni jarig. Maar omdat de vrijdag bij veel locaties niet mogelijk is, hebben we gekozen voor 27 juni!_Google+ wordt 2!!2013-06-27 18:30:0080  
Bastiaan Vinke4,172Let op: Dit is de 'wij vieren de zomer' bijeenkomst alleen nu openbaar. Graag opnieuw aanmelden dat je aanwezig bent. Altijd al aanwezig willen zijn op zo'n geweldige G+ borrel maar was de afstand een probleem? @103511435932730435338  heeft daar een geweldige oplossing voor; regioborrels. De eerste gaat plaatsvinden In het wondermooie Apeldoorn op een hopelijk zonnige zaterdagmiddag! We hebben een goede locatie gevonden in de Irish Pub Finnegan's (zie onderstaande link) in het centrum van Apeldoorn. We kunnen daar gebruik maken van gratis wifi en @101387092275812938679  zal zoals inmiddels gebruikelijk is weer een mega Hangout on Air hosten. Hapjes en drankjes zijn op eigen kosten. Kom lekker een dagje naar Apeldoorn en ontmoet je G+ vrienden.  Ik hoop jullie daar te zien. Tot dan!Google+ borrel in de zomer2013-06-15 14:00:0010

Klik dan op *ja*. *Deel je dag met de Koning* Wat doe jij op deze bijzondere dag? Deel hier wat je plannen zijn en plaats foto's gedurende de dag.

Google Plus World2,312Weten jullie het nog, de G+-verjaarsborrel afgelopen juni? Wij wel, nieuwe mensen, nieuwe dingen, dat vergeet je niet snel. Daarom nu de G+nieuwjaarsborrel oftewel *HIRL (Hangout In Real Life)*. Een gelegenheid waar we elkaar weer eens kunnen ontmoeten, drankjes doen, (die je overigens zelf betaalt), waar we een Hangout On Air willen realiseren voor de mensen die er niet fysiek bij kunnen zijn, en, waar we het vooral gewoon gezellig gaan hebben *Wat missen we nog?* Een beamer met (klein) projectiescherm om de HOA op te tonen. Heb jij er een? Ken jij iemand die er een ter beschikking wil stellen voor deze gelegenheid? Dan maken wij daar graag gebruik van! *Wie missen we nog?* Jij krijgt deze uitnodiging via Events. Mis jij iemand? Zet dit event dan door naar die persoon! *Nota Bene* We schreven het hierboven al, dus wellicht ten overvloede: Er is helaas géén budget voor deze borrel. Je neemt, net als vorige keer, je eigen drankjes en hapjes af. Wil je een donatie doen, je bedrijf promoten middels een x-bedrag in retour voor een eervolle vermelding, of zonder reden een rondje willen geven?

We zijn ruim op tijd, heb je al iets staan die dag, dan heb je alle gelegenheid dit te verzetten;) Organisatie wordt ditmaal gedaan door: @112452015636682633634 en @112433233162542061134 2013, en dat moet gevierd worden.

Today twitter.com/brilliantmaps is not so brilliant. In http://brilliantmaps.com/population-latitude/ they write rather surprising and counterintuitive fact, Europe’s population is not only relatively further north than America’s, but even further north than Canada’s!

Well yes, hardly any US cities are more north than where Canada starts. And the list below with the top 5 cities of each continent has cold cold Moscow farthest north and the rest is criss cross. Woopie!

I've been making a Dogs collection here: https://plus.google.com/collection/sYZpY . Now why is this post in the Lifehacking tips, I hear you thinking? Because I discovered Google is already using picture recognition in its G+ search! There are at least two posts my Dogs collection that had come up when I had searched for
Voute dogs
and yet in the whole post it doesn't have the word dog or dogs (nor a referral to a dog race) other than the picture that I had shot myself as an illustration. Cool huh?

My two eldest children are getting their first programming experience in Scratch Jr. And loving it #proudnerdfather
I never got to introduce them to programming. They learned about it from a friend. I believe that children should find out stuff themselves. And if that's programming then I'm over the moon. They even know from that friend that real Scratch exists too. And some day they'll find out about C++, Java and OCaml

Mijn ouders zijn gewoon Nederlands (reprint met updates onderaan)
Ik denk vaak aan die legendarische Idols aflevering uit 2003 denken waar Mark van Eijk het lied Alane van Wes zingt. (zie clip hieronder) Mark heeft ongelooflijk ritmegevoel en doet een dansje dat echt heel grappig is.

Het gesprek daarna is nog grappiger:
Henkjan: Kun je een beetje Afrikaans?
Mark: Nee, mijn ouders zijn gewoon Nederlands. Mijn ouders zijn ook geen neger of zo.
Henkjan: Dat zie je dus bij jou gewoon niet, he?

En nog meer moois in het gesprek. Afspelen dus. 2 minuten.

Ook wel heel mooi was dat we in de dealingroom van mijn toenmalige werk regelmatig dat filmpje draaiden en ons gek lachten. Toen mijn collega +Tobias Hekster​​ voor het bedrijf naar Chicago vertrok, hebben we Mark uitgenodigd om zijn act te doen. Mark wilde dat wel maar, zei hij,hij... more »

Ook wel heel mooi was dat we in de dealingroom van mijn toenmalige werk regelmatig dat filmpje draaiden en ons gek lachten. Toen mijn collega +Tobias Hekster​​ voor het bedrijf naar Chicago vertrok, hebben we Mark uitgenodigd om zijn act te doen. Mark wilde dat wel maar, zei hij, hij was eigenlijk striptekenaar. Of hij ook een tekening mocht aanbieden. Dat was goed.
Op die dag hebben we Mark door een chauffeur op laten halen, hield ik een verhaaltje terwijl ik het begin van de clip draaide en zei ik dat het natuurlijk veel mooier was als Mark er echt was. En daar kwam hij, in levenden lijve, klom op de bar en deed zijn act. De mensen wisten niet waar ze moesten kijken van het lachen en proestten het uit.
Daarna bood Mark zijn tekening aan. Het was een briljante prent waarin collega Tobias met zijn vrouw uit het vliegtuig kwam. Zijn vrouw zegt: Tobias, weet je zeker dat we hier goed zijn? Om hen heen dansen en zingen allemaal donkere figuurtjes in Afrikaans ornaat die Alane van Wes zingen.

Update: Er is nog een andere clip van Mark bij Idols. Deze is met Kedeng kedeng https://youtu.be/mTnq0pp7Y94

Every Tuesday I get my weekly Fitbit update. My number one reason that I have my Fitbit is to track sleep https://www.fitbit.com/user/3GCS4S/sleep . (Number 2 reason is Claled ID. Long live the silent call showing who calls vibrating on your wrist) Look at my progress! Last week I slept the most of the past three weeks. On average I roll over 5 times a night (once per hour) and... I set a new record in average number of minutes to fall asleep: now it's 1 minute, coming from 3 and 4 minutes! Am I a champ in that area? How much are you guys?

We'd stay there for one year. In June 2010 we moved to 9th floor, 77 Connaught Road, Central https://www.google.com.hk/maps/@22.285936,114.155532,3a,56.7y,239.88h,101.87t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sKZy6AciRIMb49NwgrOlErw!2e0!5s20110201T000000!7i13312!8i6656 the corner office. 9th is the first floor above the mirroring windows. Yes, if you count it's the 8th floor but Chinese tradition leaves out the 4th floor, because it's an unlucky number. 9 means long time. And 8 means wealth. Both are good 

Update on how the co-founders met:
+Bob Collin was still a student at university when he joined IMC as an evening trader. His famous quote was: Tom, I just bought this stock and now it's much higher. Is it ok if I sell now? We paraphresed that in the office to: Scalpen, mag dat?/Buy low, sell high, is that ok?
I thought Bob was smart, and asked him to join me to Hong Kong. When I left IMC he left too, not much later. He's our co-founder and Head of Trading since.
+Chun Wing Man I met in September 2007, two months after I arrived in Hong Kong. Wing wanted to show his future trading system that he had designed in his free time. I saw on his resume that he was three months youger than I was and I wanted to get to know a Chinese of the same age with a similar career. We met over lunch and even though IMC never worked out for him we stayed in contact. When I left IMC he quit his job (at Lehmann, just a few months before they went belly up!) and he started his future trading strategy full time. When my non-compete was finished, I asked Wing to become our Head of IT and he accepted. I don't know any other person who is knowledgeable of hardware and software on the one hand and even worked trading systems on the other hand. Great alround guy. ___

It's the shirt that the AC/DC crew wore during the Highway to Hell tour in 1979. I saw Bon back then. Listen: youtube.com/watch?v=rb8CBs5OTnA - Lex Harding announced AC/DC. It has only sound but Highway to Hell, The Jack en Whole Lotta Rosie. Sooooo good. Also great to hear Bon talk. Here's a video of that concert.

Why? Well in the description is why: So you know that what you're looking at is, in fact, a top result. We have no idea why Google didn't think to do this themselves, it seems pretty obvious to highlight the top results. I guess they couldn't be bothered. So we did it for them.

Screen 1b: "Search". When I hit the home button again (efficient) I pull up Google search with the right outlined (efficient) SwiftKey (efficient) keyboard already open (efficient) #nova
Screen 2: "The Chat Room". If I swipe right I get into "The Chat Room." This contains (clockwise, starting top right) the most recent chats of hangouts of three accounts, unread mail notification (306 G+ notifications. Terrible!), unread Whatsapps. Also a calendar widget
Screen 3:"News". If I swipe left, I see at the top my full stream twitter news twitter.com/voutenews and at the bottom my "don't wanna miss these tweets" slow stream twitter.com/tesdrun
Screen 4: "Overflow". If I swipe one more time from 2. or 3. I get an overflow news/chat screen with (counterclockwise starting top left) Google Now, Newsstand, SMS and Unread Spam(!)

And that's it! If you're on iPhone then this should be enough reason to switch to Android ___
