Gustavo Franco1,547I've started an experiment with my Google+ account disabling this circle (Googlers and Xooglers) from showing up on my home stream.

matthew rappaport147,898499 +Google+ ers that are RELEVANT to me according to the PLUSarithmThis MEGA +Shared Circles on G+ is literally the 1st 499 names that are listed when RELEVANCE is selected and 'Your Circles' is clicked under https://plus.google.com/circles (very close to it!)There are 15 that I didn't include in the circle but made the cut that are celebs or pages that I will list below as I wanted to share more users overall in this #sharedcircle  which is almost entirely full of WIN.It is interesting that the first couple of rows are a mix of people I spent more time with in the beginning and with people I spend more time with now (which has interlap!) and of course how does one define 'spent time with' when talking about a social network place but the stream, hangouts, gtalk, +H.I.R.L., etc. The algorithm is not there yet to take note of all the data let alone measuring offline interaction but I tend to +mention people (a page in the Top 499, left out of this circle) a few people now and again, it seems the more you do that with a person or page, the more relevant they are to you in this list. I wonder if that data showing how many times you tagged someone and them you will be available in the future and if so, everyone can expect that number to be high for most from me!I do find it curious that +G+ Interviews which is a page started by +Peter G McDermott that I was helping with takes up my number 3 spot when I haven't tagged it in so long or done much with it in a bit nor felt I ever interacted with it to any level compared with those surrounding it. It's not a perfect system for sure and we all might have ones that slip through the crack that make us go, "Why is this person more relevant or WHO is this person?!"I am the +1 in this circle but everyone else is the +1000 zombies that +byron rempel will turn UNDEAD  +1000 that rocks the PLUS. I can vouchfor almost all the content being interesting, all the people though, that might be another ...

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+

Chris Lion6,744Hey folks,this is my RANDOM-CIRCLE.or my GIVE IT A CHANCE - Circle!!! ;)it includes a random selection of people and i don't know what they'll post, and i don't even know why it includes exactly 442 people, but i believe that every Google+ User deserves to be circled. Maybe there are some of the most interesting people among them, maybe some of the new Google+ Stars are in this circle, i don't know. All i know is, that i gave them a chance, i circled them and you should probably do the same. Give this circle a chance. Maybe you'll find a new friend or another interesting person you could work or collaborate with.

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 17:44:35382272152CC G+

Domingo Rogers494Welcome to Thursday - Today I wanted to share a circle I've been growing slowly ever since I got started with Google+ as a 1st Generation Adopter. I've aptly titled this circle Googlers. It mostly has those that are of course employees that work at Google, but also includes the pages of some Google products. Some share more information than others, but all are worth while to include in your circles.Do you have any other Googlers that you would recommend for this Circle?2012-03-29 13:20:1470000CC G+
Jimmy James1,980Ok... Here is what I consider to be a valuable circle indeed. My first shared circle, so why not start with the Best ....Ladies . 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+

I called this the "Women in Tech" circle when I first created it a few months back, and visiting this circle is a regular stop for me to see diverse updates and interests. I recommend adding this as its own circle and setting the volume slider to what makes sense for you. Over time, I bet a bunch of these people will be some of your favorites in your circles.2012-03-08 22:22:39229251835CC G+

A couple of weeks ago some tree trimming occurred at Benjamin Staffin's place and while it did seriously open up his gorgeous view of the city, it left his back yard a mess - buried in several feet of branches.

Starting a couple days ago, I've had a craving to cut up all the branches and start gardening his yard, so I went out Friday and bought some garden gloves and and a pair of sheers. This morning, rising at the ludicrous hour of 6:30 AM (I didn't fall asleep till 3:30 - I've been having trouble sleeping lately), I started snipping apart the branches, and built up quite a pile by the time I quit an hour later. This was a huge victory for me, because I have no memory of having that much physical endurance in the last year - I appear to actually be on the mend!

Want to see some magical data? When I was little, May Day (May 1) had a standard protocol: { 1 } Make May Baskets in school. { 2 } Go home. { 3 } Leave a May Basket on a neighbor's door step. { 4 } Ring door bell. { 5 } Run. (Fast. You're not supposed to get caught - no, really).

When I describe this to people who are from outside of Iowa, usually they just look at me weird. But where might they not look at me askance? Turns out search traffic for [ may baskets ] hints that May Day interest seems to be pretty binary - people are either into the May Day-ness or not. Capital of the May Basket? Omaha, Nebraska.

Also, hilariously, the Top 5 Search Queries that correlate with [ may baskets ] are:

1) may basket
2) breakfast pizza recipe
3) renewable fuels
4) breakfast pizza
5) maytag refrigerators

The [ renewable fuels ] and [ maytag... more »

My manager showed up in our weekly 1:1 with this mash-up of hardware. Oh the dangers of getting the first Retina displays, only to be thrown back to the end of the queue when you need a replacement. :-(

He did though point out it in some ways highlights how thought through Apple's designs are, that they don't feel that awkward when thrown together field-medicine style.

Knock out your lobsters/crabs with clove oil before you boil them - they'll taste better!

I really love lobster - I can still vividly remember the first time I had it when I was nine or ten years old - but the idea of listening to one thrash around in a pot of boiling water sounds like l'suck, and I feel guilty about it. 

This guy went through and methodically explored different ways of knocking out lobsters before you cook them (it makes them taste better!), and came to the conclusion that anesthetizing them with clove oil (via Whole Foods) works amazingly for lobsters and crabs.

For the last 2.5 years, my best friend +Molly Trombley-McCann and her husband +Ransom Byers and I have been renovating a pair of houses in West Oakland near the West Oakland BART stop (it's San Francisco's Brooklyn). Our original purchase was of two houses on one piece of land, and the renovation of the front house has been dramatic to say the least. We ripped the entire house down to the studs, raised up the whole thing and poured a new foundation, and only in the last few months has the building started to look like a place we could live in. Here are some pictures from the freshly painted upper floor. The orange room is our future dining/living room, the blue room the kitchen, and the yellow room the upstairs bathroom. All of the rooms will be less colorful after either the wainscoting (dinning/bathrooms) or cabinets goes in (kitchen), all or which is white, but I love the colors even now with2x... more »

San Franfrazzled: Once-in-a-lifetime picture of lightning striking iconic bridge

"They say that lightning never strikes twice, but this amazing photo proves otherwise.

An incredible eight bolts struck the Bay Bridge in San Francisco last night which was captured in this incredible shot by photographer +Phil McGrew who took the photo through the rain-soaked window of his apartment."

TL;DR: No one shows up in the emergency room smelling of rotting flesh in Canada because they're poor.

We have a new product manager on the G+ team, and yesterday he and I had tea for the first time as part of his greater "getting to know the team" tour. I laughed so hard when he described himself as a "secret Canadian", he sounded totally U.S.of A. but apparently he's just covered in loonies and cooties and such.

For years, I always joked with people in California that I'm from "Southern Canada", because I grew up in Iowa. When I was in high school, it really did feel like we were southern Canada - we cared for the poor, the young, and the old better than almost anyone in the country - our immediate neighbors (Minnesota and Wisconsin) excluded - living up to the social contract Canada has with its citizens. We believed in dignity and we... more »

Last weekend, +Benjamin Staffin and I watched Lawrence of Arabia, one of my favorite movies. Next weekend, I would love to watch a movie suggested by the G+ community! I'm more than happy to organize a G+ movie watching club... my game plan is:

* Suggest two movies you love at: http://bit.ly/xKvQbC

* I'll pick a bunch of movies and lay out a calendar, then...

* Watch whatever movies you want to watch... I'll bias towards movies you can legitly acquire, though I won't judge you if you torrent...

* and if you want to discuss the movie... either join in a live-hangout discussing the movie, watch a broadcast hangout, or watch a recording of a broadcast hangout! (Not to mention, you also could post or leave a comment You ware welcome!.)

I'll probably end up doing some data visualization on folks' submissions, cause I can't help... more »

Where is our Nirvana? Where is our Kurt Cobain? When I turned 27, I didn't have any grand ambitions. The only goal I set was basic: just survive the year. It seemed a reasonable goal considering all the people who I looked up to who hadn't (Wikipedia: 27 Club). This week I realized, wait. If the Kurt of my generation should be dead, shouldn't he (or she) have made three albums by now? Did I miss Nirvana?

I wrote an email yesterday. Completed it. Then didn't send it. I had second thoughts. If I get performance anxiety when I'm writing email, how the hell can anyone suck hard enough long enough to later become Nirvana? You have to be really bad for remarkably long to become a good musician. I know. I was a horrible bassist for too long. Think Gladwell's Outliers here, The Beatles had actually been on stage an amazing number of hours before they ever hit America.

I am super fond of imgur.com's UI. It asks you to "write a caption" which people can then moderate up and down. I'm 95% certain that brillance correlates with sheer volume of entries created, then filtered by an editor (or editing framework in this case). The bar for a "caption" is really low in the minds of most people, so way more people participate. Combined with the theory above --> destined for greatness.

Favorite / Most Hated Quote? (vote in comments) "You'll worry less about what people think about you when you realize how seldom they do." - David Foster Wallace

When I was little, my mom would remind me when I was stressed, "you'd worry less about what others think of you if you realized how infrequently they actually do". I'm a pretty neurotic person, and this has always been a deeply comforting refrain - I've repeated it to myself many many a time in my life. It makes me radically less neurotic to believe that no notices me and I am no different than anyone else.

Thus it was a shock to me tonight when I said that to my partner and he said, "I have always hated that quote. I hate the thought that when I'm not around, I don't exist. It makes me neurotic."

Right now, the top issue I focus on every day is... more »

Starting Conversations from Search Results
#googleplusupdate #search

Today we're introducing a new feature that lets you share directly from Google+ search results, and contribute to a topical Google+ stream. For example, if you search for basketball and then want to make a post about how your favorite team or player is doing, you can share right from the search results.

Just look for the sharebox after searching on Google+, and you'll see an opportunity to "join the discussion" about whatever you've searched for.

When you post from the search results page, it automatically includes a link back to the original search stream. This way others can join the active conversation as it unfolds.

What would your work day be like with no email? Last summer, I read about Thierry Breton's declaration that Atos (Europe's largest IT services firm) is going to stop using email internally, and it totally ruined my ability to engage with my email because I couldn't rationalize it any more.

Atos found there employees received 100+ internal emails a day, spent 15-20 hours per week triaging them (often at home), and in the end, only about 10-15% were valuable. WOW. Talk about wasting people's lives. Well, as soon as I learned this, it became very difficult for me to force myself to read my email as diligently as I had for years - I get a true flood of it and it takes hours a day to truly keep up with.

It's been a really liberating last few months since I stopped using email in the traditional way. People generally IM me now if they really need to get a... more »

In light of the recent sinking cruise liner, this article from the Economist I ran across in the Dr.'s waiting room yesterday seemed oddly apropos... it's from back in December, but it's about the incredibly mundane (and critical) hurdles sea steading is trying to overcome. Turns out it's hard to be truly independent in an interconnected world (or around salt water).

What's your favorite mind hack to expose kids to? A more positive follow up on earlier... :-) I'm a big proponent of hacking one's mind, and one of the most exciting things I ever read was this passage on the power of teaching kids that their minds can grow. It's kinda amazing.

" Life Sciences is a health-science magnet school with high aspirations but 700 students whose main attributes are being predominantly minority and low achieving. Blackwell split her kids into two groups for an eight-session workshop. The control group was taught study skills, and the others got study skills and a special module on how intelligence is not innate. These students took turns reading aloud an essay on how the brain grows new neurons when challenged. They saw slides of the brain and acted out skits. “Even as I was teaching these ideas,” Blackwell noted, “I would hearthe s... more »

This seems like a shocking statistic to me, not because of the numbers, because I would have assumed some Palo High/Gunn student (or their parent) would have organized a club to address it. (I'd even be happy to mentor it).

" The parents point to startling statistics: In the Palo Alto and Gunn high schools' 2011 class of seniors, only 15 percent of African-Americans and 40 percent of Latinos completed the prerequisites for the University of California and California State University with a C or better. That compares with 79.5 percent districtwide meeting those so-called A-G requirements.*"*

+Mike Spinak and +Barry Blanchard were inspired by the popular #BirdPoker game which the dashing +Phil Armishaw and the lovely +Lee Daniels started several months ago. Barry and Mike decided to start a landscape photography version of the game.


Wiki says:
”A panorama (formed from Greek πᾶν "all" + ὅραμα "sight") is any wide-angle view or representation of a physical space, whether in painting, drawing, photography, film/video, or a three-dimensional model.”

But we’re not Wiki - so any landscape photo is game-worthy.

One of the dangers of rarely going to stores is that when you wander into a brick and motor Bed, Bath, and Beyond, you end up being way too entertained by what they sell. Here are the " 'n"/"and"/"-n-" products we found within a 15 foot radius of each other... I'm actually kinda puzzled by some of the contractions. Does "Bash'n Chop" mean "Bashing Chop"? I'm actually kinda scared how you might use one now...

Sonic Hit & Run - Howard Hello - My Friend
I stumbled across his song last night while Ben was playing music and had a really fantastic moment of profoundness/sudden awareness during it. You can listen here on Youtube: Howard Hello - My Friend/The Parasite

After re-listening several times and reproducing what I felt, I think the experience I had is actually a result of the song lulling the listener into not paying attention ((( INTENTIONALLY ))) then jars your attention around minute 1:50 (think of it as the sonic equivalent of scanning your stream and then encountering that block of capslock. In reality, if you're listening to this song in a YouTube playlist or as MP3s in a lager playlist (which I encourage strongly - support our artists!), the bridge of more intense chords don't actually distract you enough to break you off from whatever your primary attention is... more »

How was this ever a good idea? (A commenter reminds me it could be steamed cleaned...)

I'm researching sunken bathtubs (if you have inspiring tubs, send them along!), and I came across this bathtub from a June 1975 issue of Popular Mechanics. Apparently you can create the sunk tub effect by wrapping your tub in shag carpet. Amazing! Check out the last photo in the album - it's the original inspiration photo.
