Gregg Lantz2,962Tomorrow is a taxing day here in the United States. You get to decide if you want to buy Glass (sorry IRS). If you're not sure and would like to know what others are saying, add this circle.  You'll be able to look at public posts from people that use Glass and people that purchased Glass and put it on the shelf while software was being developed. You'll get both sides of the story. Hopefully this circle will help make the decision process a little easier. Don't forget to post your questions with #askanexplorer  so  people can chime in and help answer your questions. #glassexplorers   #throughglass   #sharedcircles   #circleshare   #wearables   #wearabletech   #glasswaiters  2014-04-14 21:08:59425004CC G+

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321214692CC G+
Paige Keaton57,548In memory of +Dirk Talamasca I am sharing a circle of friends from G+ I have shoved into a circle named. People Worth Keeping. As he was really into getting people connected. This circle is 700 people deep and it only shares 500. I need to split this in 2 and share all of you lovelies.. Dirk was a bad ass. He was what G+ was all about. Enjoyed many hours online during Beta with him. Really sucks when people die on here.   #RIPDIRKTALAMASCA   #shareyourpeople  2014-03-31 01:45:085015234CC G+
Ian Archibald19,730People I Learn FromWe all have people we like to learn from, who we might look up to to act as a mentor and people we connect with.  This share is people who meet these criteria for me.I haven't crafted any circle shares of late, and those who remember the shares that I created during Christmas took a lot of effort - sorting through 100's of posts, locating the top people/posts/engagement, etc.  The last significant one I did took me over 7 hours to produce.  I really enjoy creating them, but alas I don't have that much time.Who's in this circle?A lot of people you likely know and may already have circled. There are educators, scientists, speakers, developers, SEO Experts and just plain awesome people.I know many people like to add rules to their circle shares. Personally, I don't. There are many reasons for this, but let's just say, I don't like spam and the countless BS Community requests that surely follow. In short, don't blindly add people just for the sake of doing so.How Can I Get Into This Circle?I don't add people blindly.  Each person in this list has been vetted. If there needs to be some rules to end up here...• Be active - No activity = no circle.• Create Quality Content - I want to hear what you have to say• Be Original - Be Awesome• Engage with people. If you're not being seen, who will find you?Hope you all have a great week!2014-03-31 01:02:36186182223CC G+

Ralf Skirr14,917The How To Get Started With Shared Circles V2 Circle! Lots of people re-share other people’s shared circle by simply clicking the share button on the circle post. THIS circle is a starting point and a short introduction into creating your OWN shared circles.Just Published - My EPIC Circles Tutorial.5,000 Words. 29,000 Pixels long. Check it out:http://ralfskirr.com/google-plus-circles-tutorial-for-businessFor The Critics: Did you bother to take a look? This is an excellent circle that I've put together over 6 weeks. When you add these people to your circles you'll get an amazing variety of interesting, entertaining, and educational content. From G+ gurus as well as from people with only a few dozen followers but amazing profiles.Back to How-to-get-started...Of course, if you don't feel like creating your own circle, you can simply share the traditional way: 1. Click the share button below and share. 2. Plus one this post. 3. Comment on this post. [Will add you to my upcoming engagers circle.]Quick start steps for creating your own shared circle:Create the new circle1. In the circle below click ‘Add people.’ A popup will open where you can create a new circle.2. Type a new name for your new circle, and click the button ‘Create [name of your circle] circle.’ You will now have a new circle with the 450 people from the circle I created. Google sends you to the circle page in your browser. From there you can share right away:How to share your new circleIf you want to share the 450 people circle without adding more people:1. From the circle page, click the ‘Share circle’ arrow in the round circle icon. A popup opens where you can share.2. Check ‘Include yourself in shared circle.’3. Add a comment.4. Click ‘Share.’If you want to add people to the circle before sharing:Simply visit your circles or your stream and hover over the names from people you like to add and add them to your new circle like you always add people to circles: by checking the box with the circle name.To share the circle after you've added your own people:1. Place your cursor in the top left corner for the Google+ main menu. Click ‘People. ‘2. Click ‘Your circles.  ‘3. Select the circle that you’d like to share. 4. Click the ‘Share circle’ arrow in the round circle icon. A popup opens where you can share.5. Check ‘Include yourself in shared circle.’6. Add a comment.’7. Click ‘Share.’Before you share a circle, you might want to get an idea who is actually in this circle!What's NOT in this circle:No spammers. No offensive content. No inactive people.Who I've added:- I've put a lot of time into finding interesting people. Not all 450, but lots of people who are active posters, posting a variety of topics on g+. - An even smaller [than last time] pinch of 'the usual suspects,' i.e. people active in circle sharing.- A few people who have helped me to grow my following, i.e. who have RECENTLY included me in their shared circles. Including them here is a THANK YOU for their support!AND A SPECIAL SHOUTOUT for the amazing admins of our community BLOGGERS OF GOOGLE PLUS+Julie DeNeen +elizabeth obih-frank 2014-03-04 16:51:4545012590129CC G+

Richi Jennings55,376Sunday Circle Share of Awesome... ~ A big HELLO to all the new Plussers I met over the past week--and a few I reconnected with. (If you see this in email or as a notification, then you are in this circle.)In the main, these folks are engagers, not passive consumers, so do add them if you're looking for interesting conversations here on G+.Also, feel free to share this publicly. Spread the love! Missed last week's share? Go here: plus.google.com/+richijennings/posts/Keq2mELhoGoIf you're using the G+ mobile app, this may not work correctly, because circle sharing doesn't seem to be implemented right :-(#sharedcircles  #publicsharedcircle  #circleshare #sharedpubliccircle   #circlesharing   #circle  #hashtag  2014-02-23 19:56:48141311340CC G+

Ian Archibald16,093Circle of Google PlussersSo, I often get asked Who should I circle?  I say whomever strikes your interest. Find topics of interest and connect with those people who share that interest.I would very much like to share with you "my" circle of Plussers of whom I LOVE to engage with.  There are people in science, sports, networking, technology, comics, art and medicine found inside, and likely some others as well.  I've been spending the last couple years curating this list.I hope that you will connect with some of these folks!Have a great weekend everyone!2014-02-15 01:16:53326182224CC G+

Vũ Phá0So, someone asked me if when would i share a themed circle. I share circles of mixes of different people because i think it brings diversity of the circle.Well people, should i share a themed circle? Well if i would, it would be a different circle though, and it would be less frequent than my other two circles.. (this circle and the snowball one)Well circle Yulia seems kind since she did not remove any people this time, instead she added some!So everyone, this circle obviously contains people. They seem to be pretty normal perhaps.  Hahaha! :-P.Well they engage with people and they have great content in their profiles. Some in here are photographers, philosophers, humorists and everything nice! These guys are not only suggested by me but also suggested by others. So yea, i believe it's a pretty great mix... :-DNote: If ever you want to suggest someone to be included in the future editions of this circle, just tag them in the comments!2014-02-06 16:37:31501537CC G+

We are recording Gillmor Gang early this week.

Since I just talked with David Hall, inventor of +Velodyne LiDAR (the spinning thing on top of a Google self-driving car) I'm sure we'll talk a bit about what I learned.

Also, Facebook and Apple both announced good results today. But who knows what's on +Steve Gillmor's mind?

Anyway, join us now at http://ff.im/1hnb2A or watch the recording on Saturday on TechCrunch.

My final set of Coachella photos. 

Thank you so much to +BorrowLenses.com for lending us a 200 mm F2.0 (which I used in most of these photos) and a 400 mm F2.8 too. 

Extra special thanks to JBL/Harman (they make many of the world's speakers) for bringing me to Coachella and putting us up in a nice hotel room. Plus getting us a photo pass (cameras aren't allowed at Coachella, so if we didn't get a photo pass, we would never be able to make these photos). 

Hope you enjoy. If you like these, check out +Thomas Hawk's photos. He has easily 10x more photos and better quality, too. I did learn some good stuff from him, but it's amazing when you shoot right next to a master photographer and then end up in his hotel room to watch how fast he processes photos (he brought a big Apple monitor down to Palm Desert to enable faster editing).

How much will you suffer for fun and art?

Last night I wormed my way into the front of the Sahara tent at #Coachella   (this is the one that the media has noticed is getting the biggest crowds and taking a lot of attention away from other very-deserving acts) -- my son went to Foster the People, which I watched on YouTube last weekend, for instance, and they are awesome too but once into the front of the Sahara Tent you literally can't leave. It's that packed. My wife would HATE that experience. Her loss.

Almost everyone around me was about 20 years old. What the f**k is a 50-year-old fat dude doing here? I looked around and I couldn't see many other old dudes.

Skrillex. Fatboy Slim. Empire of the Sun. And more.

But what you don't see is the suffering.

Changing passwords is a pain in the behind. But everyone should be doing this because of the Heartbleed security problems that have come to surface the last few days: http://www.techmeme.com/140410/p3#a140410p3

Some things:

1. If you don't have a different password for each site you are doing it wrong! (Particularly for banks, email, and major social networks).
2. If your password isn't at least 12 characters long, you are doing it wrong!
3. If your passwords have ANY dictionary names in them, you are doing it wrong (things that appear in the dictionary).
4. If you aren't using two-factor authentication on EVERY site that offers such (Gmail, Facebook, Twitter all do) then you are doing it wrong.
5. If you aren't using a password manager like Lastpass then you are probably doing it wrong (I let it generate all my passwords now to make sure I get truly... more »

The front row is a responsibility

I've sat in the front row when Steve Jobs is presenting. Same with Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg, and lots of other tech stars. Why do I sit in the front row?

1. Because I have A.D.D. and if I'm in the back row I tend to get bored more easily. 
2. Photos are better when you are up close. 
3. Sometimes you get to meet the folks easier. I shook Steve Jobs' hand after he launched the iMac and was able to sneak past his PR staff and say thank you.

But when it comes to concerts there's another responsibility: to have fun. If you aren't going to have fun, sit somewhere else because generally performers can only see the people in the first row or two (I know I can't when I'm on stage because of the bright lights in your eyes) and performers ALWAYS respond better if the people in the front rows are havingf... more »

Dance of the drones.

With +Eddie Codel (he did the quadcopter video of Burning Man last year) we played around with his 3DRobotics Iris quadcopter. You see him flying his here. I'm shooting with my DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus, just announced.

All the details on that are here along with a bunch of other videos: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+Scobleizer/posts/NaUfuqNy1QV

Sorry, no audio here. This is straight off of the camera and I uploaded without doing any processing. It's more than 10 minutes long, and shows my neighborhood. 

Some things that I've learned are different between the 3DRobotics and the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus:

1. you can take a P2V+ out of the box and fly with fpv and telemetry on your phone, take pictures and video during the same flights, change exposure, and then copy a picture to your phone over WiFi for real timepo... more »

A second, unedited, no-audio video is up here: http://youtu.be/tzlHRlCcfOY This one shows a full flight and also shows +Eddie Codel's quadcopter, which is a 3DRobotics Iris model with a GoPro and a 2-axis gimbal.

The drone age has started: This is the coolest thing I've EVER gotten.

Introducing the DJI Phanton 2 Vision Plus. Here is DJI's intro video. My own video with +Eric Cheng, director of photography at DJI, is up at https://plus.google.com/+Scobleizer/posts/NaUfuqNy1QV (along with a first video I did).

What is this? A drone with a video camera built in (also does stills). Does 1080p HD video with a built in steady cam.

Wow. So easy to fly and steady. More coming shortly. Costs $1,299.

Nice seeing +Eddie Codel  this morning. 

I shot us with my new, unreleased, drone. In showers. Hah. It was raining lightly this morning. This is a photo this new drone shot of us.

Eddie brought his drone over and we talked about the "Do it Yourself" drone movement (details at http://diydrones.com/ ) and he showed me his drone, which is made by 3D Robotics: http://3drobotics.com/

Don't know who Eddie is? He's the one who made this beautiful drone video of Burning Man: http://youtu.be/m2ThTb6iffA

For those who missed, I'm playing with a not-yet-released drone, coming next week.

His feedback after getting a chance to fly the drone? "XXXXXX is gonna sell a bunch of these."

Cheers Google Glass Explorers!!

Beyond having an amazing day at the Google Glass Community Leaders meeting on Friday, it was a refreshing confirmation of the team's commitment and a sign of times to come. After reading +Robert Scoble's last post re Glass I admit that I also started to get a bit worried. It's a normal thing to have ups and downs when you're doing a moonshot and you need a long road to take off, but what we saw on Friday after meeting with multiple teams made us so confident on the bright future of Glass and so amazed to be part of this Community and additionally so excited for the future of the first wearable glasses that are actually wearable and usable. Only more good times to come! 

Feeling proud of being a Glass Explorer. Love you all!!

Are any of you buying more cloud computing in the next few months?

Which company you going with? +Amazon Web Services? +Google Cloud Platform? IBM? Microsoft Azure? +Heroku from Salesforce? Digital Ocean? +Rackspace? Or something else?

Do you care more about service? Special new infrastructure to do specific things (like Rackspace's new Object Rocket that brings high-speed MongoDB, Inc. to your dev team)? Or just price?

If you like price, we are in a price war. Yesterday Google and Amazon both dropped pricing. 

At the Dent the Future conference I was at this week several asked whether I was worried about the price war. I'm not, because most of our customers outsource to us for a whole lot of reasons that have nothing to do with price. But it's something we're watching, for sure.

"Context."

Larry Page is on stage at TED right now. I'm at home watching.
He is not wearing Google Glass.

This fits the new narrative that's going on in my head: that Google doesn't know how to stick with a product. Remember Google Wave? It was a very interesting idea, but Google gave up on it very quickly. Why? Because it was controversial and the execution wasn't good.

Will Google stick with Glass? I'm starting to be very skeptical.

Look at Google+. Has Google fixed what bugs me about the service? No. The first week I asked for real, algorithmic noise filtering (like what Gmail now has). No mas.

I asked for Google+ to stop asking me to follow people who have never posted. No mas.

SXSW is too big.
SXSW has jumped the shark.
SXSW is too expensive.
SXSW doesn't have good content.
SXSW has only sub-par people attending.
SXSW is a bad place to launch.

These are just some of the criticisms I've heard of SXSW over the past week or so. I find that everyone who says these things is just absolutely wrong. Yes, it's different than when I attended my first one 12 years ago (back when only 500 people attended, this year about 30,000 had badges).

Me? I had an incredible life-changing time. I avoided alcohol for all of interactive for the first time and that really changed the event for me. Why? I wasn't so tired each morning. Later, at music, I did get a bit drunk one night and I felt like crap the next morning, so I'm back on a no-alcohol kick.

Google going after developers, here's how

I recently was at a presentation done by the Google+ teams where they tried to get developers to see why Google's platforms are more interesting than others.

Why does this matter? Well, take Android. Will you buy a Windows Phone that doesn't have many apps or as much developer support? Probably not since most venture-backed developers are building apps for only iOS and Android. 

Here's Google's pitch to developers. Does it resonate if you are a developer? Will this stuff help you build a business?

For developers, how competitive is it with offers from Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, or Samsung?

I'm sure we'll hear more about these themes at the Google IO conference in May.

Datacenter geeks: Pluribus Networks is changing how networking is being done inside datacenters

Here's a video look at how.

Geeky stuff, but Google and Facebook built their own software defined network technology and now Pluribus Networks is bringing that flexibility and performance to the rest of our datacenters.
This is part of my job at Rackspace Hosting -- to find interesting startups that could change our business and what we can offer our customers.

The Pluribus Freedom architecture presents a unique combination of switch, compute, storage and bare-metal hypervisor OS technologies and is designed to accelerate the integration of services and applications into the network.

Can your smartphone tell you are holding it? Why yes it can, here's how

The Age of Context keeps arriving:

Sensor Platforms is allowing smartphones to become smarter by knowing exactly where it is. By knowing where the phone is at any given time like in your hand, on your table, or in your pocket, it's allowing future apps to build on its technologies to make contextually aware based apps.

Imagine your phone knowing that your phone is on a table when you're going to sleep and your phone automatically disables receiving calls. Or in another situation, if your phone is in your pocket, it will disable any outgoing calls that were normally made by accident. These are just examples of how the smartphone can be even smarter when it knows exactly where it is.

I'll be honest. I post a lot of interesting stuff over on Facebook that I might want to link to from here, but rarely do. Why? Because whenever I do link to Facebook, like here: http://www.facebook.com/RobertScoble there usually will be someone who comes along and bashes Facebook.

Why don't I post everything here? Because my family, friends, and most of the VIPs in the tech world, are over on Facebook. Part of social media is, well, being social with people you care about and most of those people are, sorry to say, over on Facebook.

Which got me to think. Maybe we are coming at this all wrong when we get so evangelistic about things. Maybe we're hurting the things we love (and I do love Google+) when we take such strong stands against other networks (and Facebook is the easiest to kick because it's the biggest, but... more »

Scoble says Google Glass is doomed

First, I love headlines that stretch the truth a bit. No one outside of Google got their Glass before March of last year. I got mine on the second day they were available, which was April 15th. So +Mathew Honan we really have had Glass, for, what, eight months now? Not quite a year, but that's just me being picky.

But Google Glass is doomed. Why do I say that? Because the tech press tells me so. 

Now that we got that out of the way, what have I learned in my eight months of wearing Glass?

1. Nearly everyone wants to try it. Google is brilliant. They got us to pay $1,500 (plus tax) to be its PR agent. It's gotten to the point where even I don't want to wear them around. At one conference a few people in a bathroom wanted to try them on. I figure I've shared my Glass with 500-1,000 people.

Tony Stark in real life? Yes from Meta (site at https://www.spaceglasses.com/ ).

This startup proves that Silicon Valley is still doing real tech.

Meet the future of wearable computers. 

Yes, it's long, but this startup deserves an in-depth look. Wow.

More on my thoughts later, just wanted to give you a chance to see this mind-blowing startup up close.

Here's the video of me talking with the Consumer Electronics Association, the folks who put the big consumer electronics show on in Vegas in a couple of weeks. They told me my speech was in the top three out of the dozens of speeches, so this is always fun. 

+Dale Dougherty  is also leading the Maker movement and he's an interesting one to listen to, too.

This is SO fun!

Virtuix Omni got turned down by the Shark Tank. I wanna know "what was Mark Cuban thinking?" They have funded a lot of stupid stuff and turned down this? You should have seen the crowd of geeks gathered at Geekdom around my Rackspace Hosting studio to see this.

I bet every corporate game room will buy one.

++++++++++++++

How do you elevate gaming to the next level? By virtually being in it. Virtuix Omni allows players to be fully immersed in their game by allowing them to literally step in the gaming world and walk, run, duck and jump as the character they are controlling.

Paired with the Oculus Rift, players can see the world in a stereoptic image while they walk on the omnidirectional treadmill with special low-friction shows that Omni supplies. The combination of this allows one to fully step into the gaming world and... more »

What story telling tips tech industry entrepreneurs could learn from this new winemaker

First off, happy holidays! This was a special startup I got to visit, far different than the usual tech industry ones, hope you enjoy. I'm very fortunate that +Rackspace  pays me to study innovators and wants me to do so in a variety of industries.

Embedded below is an eight-minute edited video. If you want to see the entire 40+ minute video, go here: http://youtu.be/BmYY__tbISs I also recorded some of this interview on Google Glass. #throughglass   That interview is here: https://plus.google.com/111091089527727420853/posts/D1jSBLQQvu2 so you can compare the video from Google Glass to video off of a professional Panasonic camcorder that costs a few thousand dollars.

Wine #throughglass  

Recently startup winemaker Sarah Francis gave us a tour of Napa that was pretty epic. We met wine-maker of the year, Aaron Pott (and, of course, had some of his awesome wine) and then headed over to Ghost Horse winery where we met owner/winemaker Todd Anderson. What's his claim to fame? He has the most expensive wine in Napa. He poured us a bottle that wasn't the most expensive but still retails at $2,000. Yes, it was good. Here's some scenes from that trip. This all will make sense in my next post as I get up a "pro" interview with Sarah.

The Internet of Things is coming

This is why I love Silicon Valley. I've given dozens of speeches about our book, "Age of Context," and only after speaking at PARC (Palo Alto Research Center, which is where Steve Jobs got the ideas for the original Macintosh) did a guy come up to me with a fist full of new small computers. 

These things don't just have their own ARM processor on them, but a radio and some memory as well, along with a couple of sensors. They are coming in 2014 to enable new kinds of "things." What kinds of things? Well, your shirt might have a computer built into it in the future.

"What about battery?" I asked.

Jeremy Walker, CEO of Iota (these are his hands and his computers) says that they already have the ability to generate power by movement or through solar (the generator would be on a separate... more »
