Jo Lane3,847Did you not mark your calendars? Shame, shame.Last year +Scott Cramer dared me to sit under my desk at work and share a picture; I did, he reshared and viral chaos ensued ;PIt was so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event, so get under your desk (or kitchen table or coffee table), take a pic and post it on G+ with the ridiculously long hashtag #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay ! And, mind your noggin.Last year some companies even got their whole office involved; along with kids and pets - sitting under your desk is for everyone ;PIt's Friday. You aren't really working anyway.Original post from 2012: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+ScottCramer/posts/ZpCndemLEQ5#+ScottCramer/posts/ZpCndemLEQ5#InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay2013-11-08 01:00:0055G+

Jacob Dix26,951For some time now I have been doing a project, an experiment, an exploration, a study in light. My object has been the sky, through the limited vantage point of my kitchen window and my backyard. The result, so far, is this album called Sky: http://goo.gl/phGuRForget about that for right now. Show everyone your own sky! The best, the worst. I've seen people mention avoiding it because it means they have no "object" to shoot. Don't listen to those people. It is the most challenging palette of light there is. Let's see 'em!You have a full day and a half! Please spread the word too.Sky!2012-09-02 00:00:0023G+

Brittany Constable3,838You know, I haven't seen any NaNoWriMo shared circles going around yet.  Perhaps communities have made them a little redundant, but this is still one of my favorite things about the Plus, so I'm sharing away.The people in this circle have all either mentioned NaNoWriMo in posts or comments, or are in the NaNoWriMo 2013 community.  Please let me know if you:- are not in this circle and should be (this is the one time of year I'll circle anyone and everyone as long as they're doing NaNo)- are in the circle and shouldn't be- are doing NaNo, but would not like to be included in shared circlesA note about adding large circlesIn the past, I've added WriMos to both the NaNo circle and the general writers circle.  This has proven a mistake, since a lot of people who pipe up enthusiastically during November later disappear off G+, or just don't prove a good fit for my stream, and it leaves me spending a lot of time doing circle maintenance.So what I'm doing this year, and what I'd recommend others do as well, is add new people only to this circle (if they're not already in other circles) and keep the volume turned all the way down.  Then you can go to the separate stream and check people out, adding only the people you want to keep around to other circles. In a couple of months you can empty out the NaNo circle and clear out all the people who didn't make the cut.2013-10-23 17:06:17401404CC G+
Sean Cowen43,829My Morning Circle: By Far, The Most Interesting and Unusual Circle I've Ever Created...In the beginning of October, I asked people to dig down deep and give me names of great people to add to a must-read morning circle. ( http://bit.ly/16ow9Cm ) This is the FIRST CIRCLE of those names. I have omitted a few names by my own prerogative and I've left off PAGE names as I'd like to create a separate circle for those. By and large, though, this list is the result of all the recommendations I received. There are more names to follow, as I'm still working down through the comments...What I Originally Asked of Anyone Leaving Comments and Recommendations...I'm looking for a SINGLE CIRCLE of pure awesomeness - a circle that gives me incredible content, insight, analysis, humor, a dose of the erudite, funny, sad, melancholy, happy - in short - I'm looking for one circle to throw into my stream that gets my days started off on the right foot.But I need your input. Who should I add to this circle?We all know the usual suspects (and some of those people will definitely be included if you recommend them), but I am seeking and searching for those little mentioned and possibly unknown to me people who will jump start my day.I'm not looking for popularity or anything specific - just let me know about the people you would include if you were creating this same circle. #circle   #coolcircle   #recommendedcircle   #circleoftheday  P.S. Added myself against my better judgement as I was chosen on this list as well. Now you know... :-)2013-10-20 15:53:26499612966CC G+

Kai Saffron15,310THE SAFFRONSTEIN'S MONSTER CIRCLEIt's....ALIVE!!!http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lt37qhzLMh1qbhnrvo1_500.pngI started noticing a lot of the same faces in some of the publicly shared circles this week, some people being in only one or two, and some people being in as many as four.  I then had an idea for a diabolical experiment of a new shared circle.I took four popular circles and threw them together to be a G+normous circle of over 1,500 of the most interesting and engaging users according to four different circle sharers.  For added spice and seasoning, I also threw in my smaller and cuddlier   #SaffronStarterCircle , which is my personal Top 109 Most Relevant users according to G+.  I then scrolled through this beast and removed almost all of the business pages (do they really think people are interested in the posted content- if ANY- of a page devoted to a car rental business?  REALLY?), as well as most self-proclaimed social media gurus, snake oil hucksters, follower-phishers, plus-and-reshare whores, scammers, spammers, and any other examples of general annoying uselessness.  I can't vouch for everyone who survived the cut, but there was that minimum level  of quality control at least. Since G+ lists people in circles by order of relevancy, I then took my affront to God and Nature and proceeded to amputate people from the bottom of the list (least relevant) moving upwards until I had reduced this monstrous circle to 499 people.  As a cherry on top of this abominable sundae, this means if you add this circle, I have left just enough room for you to click "add yourself to this circle" when you re-share it from your own circles (not from this post).You're welcome.Happy exploring your new Saffronstein's Monster Circle stream! #SharedCircles   #GhostTown   #PublicSharedCircles   #ItsALIVE     2013-08-12 00:38:11499531749CC G+
Kai Saffron14,989Saffron's Starter Circle (Top 110)According to G+, this circle is the top 109 people I most regularly interact with, plus yours truly.  I think it's a good-sized circle for newbies to add if you want to liven up your stream, but don't want to be overwhelmed (as can happen with adding circles maxed at 500 active people.).    Remember, you can always uncircle someone later if it turns out they're not your cup of tea.  Think of it as auditioning people.  Like the old saying goes, "nothing ventured, nothing gained".  If you wait for your Faceborg friends to start using their long-abandoned G+ profiles (assuming they even have one), I can tell you right now you may be waiting a very long time, if not forever.  You get what you put into G+.  This platform isn't a collection of walled cities of unchanging social cliques, a.k.a. FB.  It's a social network for the purpose of networking, in the true sense of the word.  So jump in.  Be a leader, not a lemming.  Most of these people don't bite (unless you ask them to nicely).  This concludes our G+ Public Service Announcement. #SharedCircles   #GooglePlus   #GhostTown     #SaffronStarterCircle  2013-08-08 14:51:1311015511CC G+
Mz Maau10,204I rarely share circles, and I regret to inform, this is not the promised #CircleDirk , rather, it's a circle I've been semi-maintaining since last spring, when it was created for +Pierce Arner to jump-start his Plus experience.Today, I'm resharing the current version on behalf of +Søren Dalsgaard Brath, who, like Pierce, is looking for new content for his stream.I figure he and I probably have a chunk of overlap, so I've added a few extras he might not yet know about.Some notes about the curation of this circle:I've tried to set aside those who have not posted recently, and I've tried to only include those who post publicly, or to extended circles.  I may have missed a few, and if you're in this circle and would like to be permanently removed, please let me know.This is not the final version, as I'm not sure such a thing is possible.This circle DOES come with a warning:You will, most likely, NOT enjoy everyone in this circle.  I, like many, have eclectic tastes, and I'm still a bit gun-shy after seeing some of the explosions from last year's crossing of the streams, so PLEASE, edit this circle to your liking with that in mind.If I ping you, you're in the circle.  There is no expectation or requirement to add this circle, it's merely a courtesy ping.  Again, if you would like to be removed from any future circle shares, please let me know.And yes, I promise, I'm still working on the #CircleDirk .Also note:  This is NOT an indication of who I like best, though some are included in this circle.  It is simply meant to be a sample of the diversity I follow.#PinkAndFluffyPersonsOfQuestionableRepute2013-06-22 16:38:09164143576CC G+
Søren Dalsgaard Brath15,007Circle Share When I see people post shared circles with engagers it most often seems a bit off to me. I was thinking of doing the same, but realized, that just because a bunch of people engage with my posts, doesn't mean they are of any interest to you.They might not share anything public, or they are engaging with my posts because I have known them a long time on G+, or they are real life friends who pity-engage with me. In short, there are no reason to think they will be interesting to you, particularly since they probably won't circle you back and see your posts.Instead I thought it would be more interesting to make a circle of those I have engaged with. That way the people in the circle have written something I found interesting enough to comment on and have posted within the last week, so they should be worth following.______________So here is my first People whose posts I have recently commented on and who might be of interest to you circle (I've got to come up with a better name).As this is a new idea, it is based on search results for my own name, so there might be some people left out. #sharedcircle  2013-06-16 15:01:0926505CC G+

Confusing SignPost Awards 2014
or: how we very nearly missed the wallabies

they have this nature trail which you pay to go on, you get a map and off you go along this path and there's these gates with signs saying "no admission" and we nearly walked on, but I was intrigued by the other sign saying "path for pushchairs" so I had a closer look.

under the "no admission" it says, in much much smaller writing: "except for persons with nature trail tickets".

they also have muntjac deer in the same place as the wallabies. I thought they were very cute.

somehow in this shot I feel the fence kind of works. but obviously if you want to find out what a muntjac deer looks like, this is not the photo you are looking for :)

feel like captioning my wallaby shot?

(not a brilliant one, I know. I was shooting from a distance, through a small gap in the fence. I just thought they were hilarious to look at.) (and yes, this one's an albino. they're normally grey/brownish.)

my weirdometer is beeping.

someone reshared one of my pics - so far, so totally cool, but it wasn't a pic I'd expect anyone to want to reshare and it's not someone I've had any interactions with. still fine though, people are free to reshare stuff as long as I haven't disabled reshares. it just made me wonder, so I checked out the reshare.

they had added one comment but it's not in a language I know, and even Google Translate is refusing to play. (anyone happen to know what this means? "Nosa iso deve ser bon" - I think it's supposed to be Portuguese.)

anyways, I then had a look at this person's About page, all it says is Male and then there's the "in his circles" bit, which is where it got really weird:

you know how some people seem to just argue for the fun of arguing?

I think some people are the opposite - all they want is to make it seem like we agree. It's as though the world won't be ok until we can all pretend to agree about everything.

hmmm...

it's a thursday

and as I was getting my breakfast I noticed those yellow letter magnets in the kitchen and thought: how about spelling yellow in yellow!

yes, it's in Hebrew, so you're getting an extra Hebrew lesson with your dose of yellowness. also a bit of yellowness on the side (yes, literally - on the left hand side of the fridge) provided by (a) the rest of the letter magnets, which live on the side of the fridge; and (b) my jar of soup mandels, which is just peeping there in the bottom left.

(and I also wrote "yellow" on the shopping list, so if you want to see how it looks in Hebrew in cursive writing, there you go.)

self censoring

is not always a bad thing. sometimes it's about self preservation. sometimes it's a matter of caring enough about yourself, valuing yourself enough so that you won't tell the whole world your deepest, more personal stuff - - -

I do share a lot that's personal. I have blogged about some very personal things - but I've done that when I chose to, when I felt it was important. There's a big difference between deciding to write about personal stuff, and just blurting it out because someone asked something and, yanno, that's where the conversation was going.

So sometimes I start typing a comment, realise how vulnerable I'm feeling about saying all this to the whole world and then, quietly, without anyone else knowing about it, just hitting "cancel" and not posting.

uh-oh, the Vogons are upon us, in a new disguise!

a good reminder to run and get your towel rummage around in your photos to find something #yellow you can post for the weekly #yellowonthursday hilarity.

it doesn't have to be anything special (though this one totally is) but it does need to be yours, ok?

the hashtag is #yellowonthursday and the reason is #hhgttg :)

keeping my sanity on g+
a few useful extensions

I was chatting with +Heidi Bouman about how AutoSave helps me retain my sanity, and thought it might be time to share this old post again - it lists several Chrome extensions which make G+ a lot more doable for me.

#chromeextensions   #usefulextensions   #thisishowiplus  

some of the things that help me keep my sanity on G+

- The Hide Highlighted Posts extension, which hides all that "Joe Bloggs +1ed this post" stuff from my stream. (linked below)

- The +Do Share extension, which makes up for the lack of a built-in "save as draft" feature on plus. (because, yanno, if you're writing a long post and need to go do something offlineish, saving as draft is pretty essential.) (Do Share also comes with other bells and whistles but I'm focusing on the stuff that I find essential.)

- The +Replies and More extension, which lets you hit "reply" without needing to manually attempt to tag the person you're replying to (very handy when it's a long discussion with lots of different people, and even more so when it's someone with a name you find hard to spell, or it's in a character set you can't type in). Now I know there was another feature they added which I found seriously helpful, not directly related to replies, but I don't remember what it was now. Brain getting fuzzy. Sorry. EDIT: I know what it was! they added the option to auto expand posts and/or comments, which I use with comments and it means I don't have to keep clicking "show more" when I want to read a whole discussion.

- The AutoSave extension, which saves my text if I'm in the middle of typing and my browser goes funny or something - it remembers the last thing I was typing, whether it's in a post or a comment, and all I have to do is hit the "load" button and my text comes back. It's like a clipboard, only specifically for G+.
(https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jagnffmpahidgbhkeomnfcngnhapddha)

(Sadly all this stuff is available only on Chrome.)

not wanting to rain on a friend's exceedingly well-intentioned parade, I'm going to say this here:

of course it costs. kindness costs - and I don't mean in material terms, because often being kind isn't about opening your wallet and giving change to a beggar or buying someone a sandwich, often it's about small gestures and patience and time and putting the other person first even though you're in a rush and you've had a really tough day and you have so many worries on your mind and...

that's when it costs. it costs putting to the side those things that feel extremely important - and, you know, some of them actually are extremely important, like if your grandmother is dying and you need to get to the hospital quick but someone is dawdling in front of you on the road, or, dare I say, they're taking their time in front of you at the supermarket till, or... hey,... more »

... the person who is, very much like you, struggling to make ends meet and doing a soul-sucking job because they have a family to feed and a sick grandmother and...

that's when kindness costs. when you are dealing with so much pain that you just want to lash out at someone, anyone, and you don't see the pain in the other person, you don't see them as a fellow human being who is struggling just like you.

it's easy to be kind to cute and fluffy kittens when they're not pooing all over you and when you're not having a desperately tough day. most of the time though - kindness is tough and costly and when you manage to do it despite everything, that's a small miracle. a victory.

kindness is a rare and precious commodity. when I see humans being kind to fellow humans, I feel I'm seeing something really special. I've sometimes been reduced to tears because of it. sure, it shouldn't be so rare and precious, but we're not living in an ideal world.

so what am I saying? I guess I'm saying: kindness does often cost. and it's worth a lot. let's try sprinkling this precious gold dust everywhere, even though it costs us a great deal.

Interesting.

I was very unsurprised by the headline - my experience on FB was very much like that. After all, on FB you're mainly sharing stuff with people who know you, your friends and relations, and there's a limit to how far you'll want to risk those relationships.

My feeling is that it's not that bad on G+, though there certainly are issues where it feels quite scary to voice an opinion - subjects where you see again and again the ridicule, the hate, the name calling that people are exposed to when they dare to say that thing that society at large has decided is unacceptable. On G+ we're talking to strangers a lot more, especially those of us who post Public. So it seems a lot more acceptable here to express different points of view - if a stranger doesn't like what I said then hey, they can uncircle me if they feel strongly enough, and I can block them if... more »

On G+ we're talking to strangers a lot more, especially those of us who post Public. So it seems a lot more acceptable here to express different points of view - if a stranger doesn't like what I said then hey, they can uncircle me if they feel strongly enough, and I can block them if their reactions get out of hand. I don't have to meet them at the next family get together.

As for Twitter, I'd have thought it would be more like G+ in that respect, but I guess it depends on how each person is using the platform - if you have lots of offline friends following you then it might feel FB-like, and you might self censor.

what do you think? what's your own experience?

Well, I guess if you're going to be stuck in traffic, you might as well have something to quack you up laughing :)

tl;dr: trailer full of rubber ducks came open while being driven to a duck race. over 300 of them!

because it's really sad if people fall for this stuff and it puts them off donating to charity. read +Ayoub Khote's post. he's talking sense.

This Kind of Shit Just Pisses Me Off

Here's the thing, having worked in the charities sector, I can speak to this:

The extra money raised outside of the regular annual amount that a charity manages to raise goes to the reason for the charity, be it ALS research or whatever.

The figures paid to staff do not increase as the income increases, so the CEO or staff won't get a bigger paypacket when a charity raises more money. The research, or reason for that charity, gets more.

People seem to forget easily that charities operate in the real world, and to have good management of a business, large salaries must be offered.

You pay peanuts, you get monkeys, as an old boss of mine used to say.

So no, this isn't "ruthless politics," it's ruthless ignorance. It's a marked lack of understanding of how charities work. Anyone who looks at this and thinks that the $70+ million raised by the Ice Bucket Challenge will be distributed evenly by the ALSA among those percentages doesn't understand how, in pie charts like these, fixed costs (like salary etc.) remain fixed, and thus take up less of the pie when the pie becomes bigger.

This kind of shit just doesn't stand up to scrutiny. It's designed to be inflammatory, and it's designed to stop you from being charitable.

Frankly, it stinks.

this is from our anniversary outing to that farm - the chooks roam around where people are sitting and having their tea and sandwiches, the first thing I saw when we arrived was chickens under a table :-)

"I don't often blog about the Israeli-Palestinian issue" - that's how I started this post, way back in 2009 when I was blogging on Multiply.

As I said back then, I could totally wear myself out fighting this battle and I feel the difference I'd make would be miniscule.

I do this when I post on this subject, because I'm only human and I do have feelings and I see enough anti-Israel hatred and venom in comments online, I really can't cope with having that stuff going on on my own posts. I'm sorry that this means we all miss out on the potentially good discussions we could have had otherwise. In this case, the trolls partly win. Like I said, I'm only human, and I have to pick my battles.

(And no, when I say "anti-Israel hatred" I don't mean legitimate criticism of certain actions, I mean hatred. It exists, and I see it on so many posts online, it's horrible. I'm fine with people disagreeing about things in a civilised manner, I'm not fine with hatred.)

1. So this is what I'm starting to read tonight. It's my third of his novels, and I absolutely loved the others, so am expecting good stuff.

2. I seem to have developed a habit recently of changing bookmarks when I start reading a new book. does anyone else do that?

a real live bear cub, adopted after her mama was killed, and given the name Winnie after the town of Winnipeg where this guy came from.

'A photographer and his elderly neighbor spent every Sunday for five years making a haunting “non-motion picture” about love, loss, and breakfast.'

I started reading this because I thought it was interesting
but
it's so much more
it's seriously moving

especially the actual pictures and narrative. very moving.

Talking Statues

This is way cool! You walk around London or Manchester and see a statue. It's someone famous but you don't know much about them. If it's one of the 35 statues that are part of this project, you can swipe your phone on a special tag and get a phone call from the statue, with an actor speaking on behalf of whoever it is and telling you their story.

to find out which statues are talking, and where they're located:

sigh

saw an article online that claims to tell you how to crop a photo on the computer, which is supposed to be the answer to what happens if someone photobombs your picture.

because yeah, photobombs are always neatly placed outside of the subject of your photo so that you can so easily crop them out without losing anything. yeah, right...

randomness from my day
(including, but not limited to, books, as well as a 42)

been having some time offline and it amused me to see what Mr Jingles had to say when I popped in.

it's a very grey and rainy day here today. having a quiet day in seems totally the right thing for a day like this, and anyway I felt that's what I needed. yesterday was good but a bit intense for me. also: I was getting near the end of the novel I'd been reading, and it's so much more enjoyable to finish it in a daytime sofa session rather than in bed just before sleep.

the book I finished reading is The World According to Bertie by Alexander McCall Smith. this guy is so very totally one of my favourite authors, I devour his books.

the book I finished reading is The World According to Bertie by Alexander McCall Smith. this guy is so very totally one of my favourite authors, I devour his books. I first discovered him through stumbling upon a copy of The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency in a charity shop, got hooked on that series (based in Botswana), then discovered his Isabel Dalhousie series (based in Scotland), then there was that crazy story about the linguists (can't remember its name now), and Corduroy Mansions (based in London), and this stuff - another series based in Scotland, this time without anyone trying to solve mysteries, just people doing the stuff that people do, living and bringing up kids and looking for love and taking their dogs to the pub and whatever, all with the wonderful light touch that this author brings to absolutely everything.

(Bertie, after whom this book is named, is a 6-year-old boy who has been, through no fault of his own, encumbered with an exceedingly trying mother. The world through Bertie's eyes is an interesting place.)

also: it's really weird getting up in the morning, you feel like the whole day has gone but you look at your watch and see it's only 4pm. (that's not a current thought, that's from earlier. by now it's nearly 6pm here.)

here endeth this bit of randomness.
