Mike Barad483I'm interested in growing my Technology Circle. My specific interest is #mobile apps and tech, but I'm happy to have a broader web and software-development crowd as well. I'm looking for people who like to share content, engage on posts, and enjoy Google+. I'm sharing my curated Technology Circle here with you, many of whom are included. If you have a similar circle to share, or a few suggestions on people to follow, pay it forward. Also feel free to share my circle with others if you find it valuable. Thanks!2014-08-04 19:22:43121000

CK Wylde1,228A Circle Share Of Crazy People - Also Known As WritersI've not really shared circles before but every time +Brian Buckley does it I end up with fantastic new people in my feed.  So I thought I would share my writer's circle with you all. In it you will find  a bunch of G+ Writers and people who have to do with writers (publishers for instance).  WarningI tried this a little earlier and had a couple of people say they couldn't see the people in the circle. If you can't please let me know, I'm trying to figure out why that might be happening. Also, if you happen to know why that happens I am all ears.If you want to be included in this circle, also plese let me know.  #writers   #circleshare   #circles  2013-11-18 20:32:284401519
Dustin W. Stout26,662The Most Creative and Inspiring People on Google+As the first of my #circlesplosion  shares, this crowd-curated circle is comprised of those people who have been personally endorsed as some of the most creative and inspiring people on Google+.These folks are artists, designers, photographers, crafters, painters, musicians, videographers, marketers, and all around creators of things here on Google+.If you're a creator of things and want to connect with more people who create and inspire, add this circle.  Keep watch of the people in this stream and connect with the people you resonate with. About #circlesplosionAs I discussed in my introduction to #circlesplosion  (here - dustn.tv/circlesplosion/) managing and curating your circles will ultimately give you the greatest experience here on Google+. In an effort to connect people with passion, with other people with those same passions, I have resolved to share these crowd-curated circles with the world. I hope this group gives you as much value as it has me! Have a great monday everyone!  #creativity   #inspiration   #sharedcircles  2013-11-11 19:47:102367341119

Russell Holly17,110The people who challenge you are the most valuableI've never done a #circleshare before, so lets see how this goes. This is my circle of people who challenge me. When I post something, they react, or they question, or they correct. We have conversations across a variety of topics. Sometimes on my posts, sometimes on theirs.It is so important to surround yourself with people that make you think. When you surround yourself with people who make you think, you are always learning.2012-05-01 03:59:2245426

Dan Leveille23,227Google+ Users the Community Couldn't Live WithoutA Community-Curated CircleWith suggestions from hundreds of people, these are the Google+ users who the Google+ community "couldn't live without." Their content, personality, and overall presence on Google+ provides irreplaceable value to other members of the community.Two days ago, I asked the question: "Who are 3 Google+ users you couldn't live without?" After hundreds of comments came in, here's the Circle that everyone created!Original post: goo.gl/P4D8HFull details: Every [valid] suggestion was added to this Circle. Suggestions made on reshares of the original post were included unless the post was not share publicly. When people suggested more than three members, I chose the first three who were not already included in the Circle. Self-nominations were not included unless another user recommended that person. Pages were not included unless they represented a single person (for example, celebrities). I may do a Page version soon!#circleshare #circles #publiccircles2012-02-26 01:19:07305514868

Seems legit. Chet was pretty agile at evading me during my last visit to MountainView.java. Even gave me an evil eye when I started talking to him when he was wearing his headphones. Like that's a universal sign of a programmer deep in thought or something.

But the famous pop culture hillbillies of 20th century were actors reading from scripts. Their versions of poverty and ignorance ended when the episode was over. It was safe. Today, the real Pa Kettles and Jed Clampetts of the world are speaking directly to people like them. But when you take real Americans who’ve been living under the poverty line and pull them into the pop culture spotlight, the dark reality of what it means to be poor in America comes with them.

They will be monitored for 21 days at a "separate location" at the U.S. military installation at Vicenza Italy, according to U.S. military officials. Senior Pentagon officials say it is not a "quarantine," but rather "controlled monitoring." However, the troops are being housed in an access controlled location on base, and are not allowed to go home for the 21 day period while they undergo twice daily temperature checks.

And Governor Christie has officially declared that Italy is the best country ever.

Dr. Christie said that, beginning on Monday, he would begin a series of random “house calls” to check New Jersey residents for Ebola and assign them for quarantine. “I can usually diagnose someone with Ebola in under a minute,” Dr. Christie said. “Even faster if I don’t actually see them.”

According to the study, those whose minds were elsewhere while being taught certain concepts, like what a virus is and numbers, are at a significantly greater risk of being afraid of catching Ebola than people who were paying even scant attention.

We weren’t able to find a way to keep Twitpic independent. However, I’m happy to announce that we have reached an agreement with Twitter to give them the Twitpic domain and photo archive, thus keeping the photos and links alive for the time being. Twitter shares our goal of protecting our users and this data.

Makes me wonder if that was Twitter's end-goal for Twitpic all along. </tinfoilhat>

Free speech, I want this to be said and I want this to be heard

Pretty much the only time I hear the words "free speech" being mentioned these days is when people want their opinions to be heard. But that's not what it's supposed to be, at least in theory. Sure, you're entitled, even legally guaranteed, to be able to express your opinions (short of well defined hate speech and variants thereof). But what "free speech" proponents really want is to be able not only to say what they want, but somehow legally obligate everybody to listen to what they have to say.

Here's how I view this specifically on G+. When I post something, I want that to be said. I can't force any of you handsome people to listen to any of it. You can mute a post. You can remove me from your circles. You can block me forever and ever. I won't even be heard to begin... more »

But what "free speech" proponents really want is to be able not only to say what they want, but somehow legally obligate everybody to listen to what they have to say.

Here's how I view this specifically on G+. When I post something, I want that to be said. I can't force any of you handsome people to listen to any of it. You can mute a post. You can remove me from your circles. You can block me forever and ever. I won't even be heard to begin with if you didn't add me to your circles.

And then, when I decide to follow somebody, I express my desire for that person's thoughts to be heard. To be heard by me specifically. And, as a tangent, resharing a post is me agreeing that this wants to be said.

I want to be careful with commenting. When you leave a comment, you leave it on somebody else's stream (unlike sharing, modulo increasing the share count on the original post). There you start mixing what the original poster wanted to say, what you wanted to say about that, and what original poster's followers wanted to hear. This is no longer about your followers. 

So when you're controversial just for the "fun" of it (aka "harmless" trolling), or being rather illogical (aka the argument of being a law abiding tax paying citizen entitles you to your own opinions no matter what the facts are) or just inconsequential (aka saying Hi, how are you doing on every single What's hot post), don't be surprised when people who want a bit more control over what they think wants to be said in their own stream show you the door.___

Somebody should do the same for tech news sites. Pretty sure Business Insider will be the parallel of Fox News.

But what is really frightening is the reach of Fox News. Fox News rated as the only real news source for consistent conservatives, with 47% of them citing it as their main source of news. Nothing even came close to touching it, as the second most common answer, “local radio” was cited by only 11% of consistent conservatives. Eighty-eight percent of consistent conservatives trusted Fox News. Mostly conservative and even “mixed” people also liked Fox News.

The problem with this is watching Fox News actually makes you less informed than if you don’t watch any news at all. In a 2012 study, Fox News viewers rated the absolute lowest in ability to correctly answer questions on a quiz about recent news events.

It was the second most common outlet cited as a favorite by consistent liberals, topped only by CNN.

That’s why asking whether technology causes inequality is the wrong question. Instead, we should be asking how advancing technologies have changed the relative demand for high-skill and low-skill workers, and how well we are adapting to such changes. Surely, rapid advances in technology have exacerbated discrepancies in education and skills, and the rise of digital technologies could possibly be playing a part in creating an extreme elite of the very rich. But it makes no sense to blame technology, just as it makes no sense to blame the rich. It is our institutions, including but not only our schools, that need to change. The reforms that experts recommend are numerous and varied, ranging from a higher minimum wage to stronger job protections to modifications of our tax policy.

Wish I could jump to 2025 to see how these predictions will turn out. I do agree that quite a few icons on my home screen can be deleted since most of the time I interact with their "content" starts from the notification shade. It's harder to predict the evolution of aggregator apps such as Feedly or Pocket though.

Moretti's research into housing affordability found that tech growth in cities like Seattle has been the same to San Francisco relative to its size, but the rise in the cost of living is less than a third of that experienced in San Francisco. This is largely attributed to the city building more housing to meet demand. In a city like San Francisco, the restricted supply means that more people with more money are trying to move into existing housing units, giving landlords and real estate speculators the incentive to increase the cost of existing stock, even evicting tenants.

The solution, it would seem, is to simply build more. The city's stringent regulations make it an enormous challenge, though. So in lieu of adequate housing supply, costs are rising faster than most San Franciscans can keep up with, and the staff at St. Anthony's and other homeless shelters are seeing this in... more »

I am yet to read a single article on the subject of San Francisco housing situation where people even mention the possibility of getting up, leaving and restarting their lives in a different place in this vast country. Add if being born in a certain place means that you have to stay there forever.

In episode 60 of Back to Work, Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin discuss what they call “work as platform.” The basic idea is that we need to stop looking at work as a thing you do for a company. If you view your career like that, your success will always be linked to the success of the company, as well as your ability to survive within that particular culture. You will be at the mercy of people who are concerned about their own careers, not yours.

Instead, if you think about your work as platform, your attention starts to shift to using whatever job you are doing to develop your skills further, so that you’re never at the mercy of one company.

#ShowThemTheDoor

There’s something obviously illogical about free-speech panic among white Americans in 2014. Thanks to online publishing and social media, the barrier to entry for free public speech is lower than ever.  What I suspect truly bothers free-speech reactionaries is that the same, democratized new media that allows them to publish free-speech rants has opened public discourse up to a lot of people they’re not used to hearing from — women, people of color, and those Gamergate calls "social justice warriors," in particular. Some of the people who historically controlled the media uncontested might not like what these people have to say, but these newcomers are nonetheless very popular.

I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not literally illegal to express.

"But I’m trying to suggest that Taylor Swift’s ability to distill complex emotional experiences into broadly-appealing music and lyrics is an amazing talent. This kind of pop music has unique rules of engagement. It’s hard to write a catchy pop song. It’s really hard to use words to tell an emotional story with broad appeal while retaining nuance. Especially one that makes me want to dance, want to keep feeling a feeling. That requires a creative intelligence very different from most of the artists I mentioned above."
