Vago Damitio8,732Super Technology CircleI am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better!This is a circle of super technology people.

Please don't be upset if you were left out or if there are mistakes. It takes a lot of work to compile this and I will publish a new list and circle with corrections.Also please note that precise rankings are meaningless due to the standard error of measurement involved in Klout scores. Many thanks to +CircleCount for making this job considerably easier.I also want to thank +Amanda Blain for all her suggestions over the various months on how to improve this list.As always, I welcome your suggestions and corrections.Please let me know of any corrections for the final list to be published before the end of the year.If I missed you, please let me know. Upcoming circle – please let me know if you want to be included.Active on Google plus and Twitter – provide your twitter id   Social Media MadnessThere are other social networks out there besides Google plus.  While Google Plus is certainly my favourite, there are uses for the other ones.Include your twitter id in the comments to be included in a future circle of twitter users on Google plus.Tweet me @euromaestro to be included on a twitter list of Google plus users. Follow me on :twitter :  https://twitter.com/euromaestrofacebook : http://www.facebook.com/euro.maestro2012-12-16 23:54:20209641136CC G+

Jason Wells13,970Top 100 Unverified (v1)on the cuspI've always been a little intrigued by the concept of a "verified user." Ostensibly to ensure the true identity of the person behind a profile, it also serves as a validation of notability, social success or even celebrity. At this point in time, almost 6900 Google+ users have the checkmark. And while Google verifies users according to their own criteria, everyone above a certain number of followers is verified. As it happens, right now that certain number is about 588,000.This is I believe a unique list: the top 100 people, ranked by follower count, that are at or below that line. In other words, the people who are just about to get on Google's verification radar. So it ranges from +Maria Popova, with roughly 588k followers, to +Matt Steiner, with about 39k.It's an interesting group of people, predominantly photographers or other visual artists. Some of them are quite good. There's a broad swathe of nationalities represented. Interestingly, most of them are people I haven't seen on G+ before, although there are a few familiar faces. What unites them all is that they're all very close to earning their checkmarks.As they get verified, people will fall out of this circle, so I expect to change often. So I'll reshare this circle periodically with the refreshed top 100 unchecked folks. I encourage you to reshare it too.(Props to +Chris Macidis, my technical collaborator.)2012-07-16 14:58:18100515CC G+
Kyle Beck0So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+
Kimberly Iudakova24,679This is my first shared circle on Google+ I have been on here for almost a year at the end of June and wanted to give it a whirl.. I was inspired by Thomas Hawk and thought I would give it a try.. Now what you will find in here is a mixing pot of fun people depending on what you like..so dig around pick a few or bag the whole circle at once. *CAUTION* *ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK*  *>;)~*2012-06-13 07:22:1149810618CC G+
Euro Maestro20,504The Who's Who for Google+ - The top 500 Gplussers in the World - UpdatedHere’s the updated and corrected Euro Maestro 500 list for April For an explanation of how the list was put together, see the original post.https://plus.google.com/107040353898400532534/posts/JtmZFHiJf2xYou can find the complete list on circlecount.com, one of my favorite sites.What’s new :1. Klout scores are updated and reflect the score as of Friday 27 April2. A few people were accidentally left out of the first circle including +Liz ℚuilty +Michael Q Todd +Pam Adger and +Aaron Wood – apologies to all3. Expanded list4. Change from previous score (12 April)I will update this list weekly and publish it once a month. This is the list for April and any other changes I will incorporate in the list for May. Your suggestions as always are most welcome. If you want the weekly list, just let me know. Many thanks to +Amanda Blain for pointing out some corrections. The circle includes everyone with a Klout score higher than 75 plus selected other users from this list that offer great content or honest intelligent discussion to bring it up to a round 200. Excluded from the circle are those that have not posted recently on Google+. I have left room in the circle for the people that may have been missed in this second draft. At the bottom, you will find those who have more than 50 000 followers and an unknown klout score. Many thanks to +CircleCount and +Klout for all the assistance and a great service. ======================================================The Top 500 by Klout score 1 Lady Gaga 94 2 Kim Kardashian 91 13 Selena Gomez 90 4 Pete Cashmore 89 -14 Demi Lovato 89 7 Snoop Dogg 88 67 Cristiano Ronaldo 88 29 Trey Ratcliff 87 -110 Guy Kawasaki 86 110 Mark Hoppus 86 1010 Nicholas Kristof 86 13 Thomas Hawk 85 13 Ivete Sangalo 85 15 LeBron James 84 -215 François Hollande 84 317 deadmau5 83 -117 Chris Pirillo 83 17 David GUETTA 83 17 Mike Elgan 83 21 Felicia Day 82 -121 Tom Anderson 82 221 Paris Hilton 82 21 Victoria Justice 82 -121 Robert Scoble 82 -121 50 Cent 82 121 Chris Hardwick 82 121 Greyson Chance 82 221 Joe Penna 82 -430 Britney Spears 81 30 Dalai Lama 81 130 Soulja Boy 81 30 Amanda Blain 81 130 Deepak Chopra 81 130 Michael Q Todd 81 new32012-04-28 15:54:02200451038CC G+

Robert Scoble1,146,151Here are 500 of my favorite Tech Journalists, bloggers, and pundits. I'm sharing this since I am seeing lots of new people coming over and I'm sure they are looking for some great people to circle here. Unfortunately I can't share everyone that I have in this circle (I have 575 in this circle on my screen, but Google+ only lets me share 500 with you). Lots of interesting tech bloggers and journalists here. Hope you enjoy. This is the circle that starts my morning every day.Speaking of Tech News, I'm off to +VMware. They are announcing new Cloud Foundry stuff this morning. So, you'll probably see some tech news from the folks in this circle.2012-04-11 16:01:035005737106CC G+

Susanne Ramharter3,133Fridays are for sharing circlesto the new people who have put me in their circles: many thanks! Some of you I have already had contact with, to the rest, I would like to reciprocate with this circle. It is hand-picked, and contains people who are funny, intelligent, knowledgeable, and engaged.You will find information about social media, google+, as well as cognitive science, books, travel and art, some agitation against encroaching on civil liberties (SOPA, ACTA, censorship - mostly from me ;-) inspirational as well as snarky things, and yes, the occasional cat. But everyone here is friendly and has great things to contribute, so feel free to share the circle if you like.Have fun!2012-03-09 15:46:5631329919CC G+
Robert Scoble700,661Yes, it's a ghost town of TECH INDUSTRY JOURNALISTS AND BLOGGERS. Pay no attention to anyone from the Wall Street Journal who snuck onto this circle. Yes, this is 500 people, but they are almost all active.2012-02-28 03:05:115005538103CC G+
Lambert Schlumpf874Circle Shareee!The Interactive CircleI modified a bit the circle shared by +Max Huijgen yesterday afternoon (GMT): few people have been removed because their posts attract thousands of comments and you wouldn't get replies anyway. Plus, I am sure you have already in your circles people like +Trey Ratcliff, +Tom Anderson or +Mike Elgan.I added instead few others who I reckon are more interactive, In the meaning that if you post a direct comment to the author you are very likely going to receive a reply, which is always nice: They are people like +Christy Ramsey, +Paul van de Loo, +Clare Cosgrove, +Yvan Da Silva and others. Some of them are not very famous, but oh, well... they interact! Here the original post, via +Max Huijgen Out of the box into a circle: change your G+ world!http://j.mp/z4s0ZH2012-02-26 09:21:182021708CC G+

Max Huijgen13,212Out of the box into a circle: change your G+ world!The pegs and the holes, the ones who think different, the people who will change your G+ worldA careful selection on relevance, great posts, contributions to debate, original thought and stunning images. If you follow this circle of 200, G+ will never be boring and you are in for a stream of thoughts and beauty.The familiar faces show up, but it contains a large number of hidden gems if you dig deeper.As a circle needs a name: "Think different: the interaction circle" will do very well.Update: The most interesting part is that the circle is part of some experiments: one of them is the daily update. A way to ´subscribe´ to a circle by reading all the post at your leisure. Every day you will see the complete collection on this url:http://publiccircles.appspot.com/dailyplus/z12luh3hjsngtd04y04cetehsvf0x3nbtmc0kOn a dull Saturday this circle managed to create 780 posts and generate 7093 comments, 4842 reshares and 16074 +1's. Check it on a week day and that page will be living proof that G+ is not dead at all. This circle alone generates more posts and comments than you can possibly read on a day. Oh yes, that´s why it´s called the interaction circle ;)2012-02-24 22:38:5920015310285CC G+

Gregory Esau0An enhanced version of my previously shared circle of "World Intelligence" . If there is anybody else that you feel should be on here... maybe even you!!...please let me know. This is what I call my "World Intelligence" Circle. The purpose of this circle is that collectively, they give us a enhanced understanding of the world...and this included our Google Plus World!!...we live in.Our collective goal is to build on this circle, to constantly improve the diversity of views, and depth of knowledge, so we can 'crowd source' better ways to both understand the world in which we operate, but in turn lead in this world, to make it a better place for all of us. This Circle falls roughly into six categories:1) Economics and Economic Systems2) The Internet and Social Technologies3) Politics and Global Politics4) Science and Technology5) Religions and Spirituality6) Environment and Ecological Systems. These all inter-relate in one way or another, and it has long been my view, to understand our world, we need to constantly learn, and collaboratively share our knowledge around these 'systems'. None of us individually can 'know' or 'understand' the world, but as a collaborative enterprise, we can develop better knowledge for better leadership.2011-12-11 00:07:392394212CC G+

"This is data journalism for me: storytelling informed by the numbers that have become as common as oxygen around us. The reader interface of those stories can be anything from data visualizations to in-depth investigations and, yes, explainers. But the defining feature is that combination of storytelling with the actual, transparent data—being the readers' guide to the world around them but also helping them navigate the river of raw information by assuming they are grown up enough to engage with it for themselves." --- +Simon Rogers

""The principle that all Internet content should be treated equally as it flows through cables and pipes to consumers looks all but dead."-Edward Wyatt, pulling no punches. 

As previously notes, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler released the following statement in response to this story and others: "There are reports that the FCC is gutting the Open Internet rule. They are flat out wrong. Tomorrow we will circulate to the Commission a new Open Internet proposal that will restore the concepts of net neutrality consistent with the court's ruling in January. There is no 'turnaround in policy.' The same rules will apply to all Internet content. As with the original Open Internet rules, and consistent with the court's decision, behavior that harms consumers or competition will not be permitted."

Gautham Nagesh has a scoop: "WASHINGTON—The Federal Communications Commission plans to propose new open Internet rules on Thursday that would allow content companies to pay Internet service providers for special access to consumers, according to a person familiar with the proposal.

The proposed rules would prevent the service providers from blocking or discriminating against specific websites, but would allow broadband providers to give some traffic preferential treatment, so long as such arrangements are available on "commercially reasonable" terms for all interested content companies. Whether the terms are commercially reasonable would be decided by the FCC on a case-by-case basis."

Great reporting by +Hari Sreenivasan  in this segment on a new blockbuster drug that has a high curage rate for Hepatitis-C. The rub? It also has a high price: Sovaldi costs $1000 per pill, or $84,000 for the typical course of treatment. Pent up demand and potent results have led to record revenue for the maker of the drug, Gilead Pharmaceuticals, and public outcry about the expense:
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/23/your-money/gilead-revenue-soars-on-hepatitis-c-drug.html

This is a complicated, important story. I thought the PBS NewsHour handled it well.

No Game of Thrones or other new shows yet, but starting in May Amazon Prime customers (like me) will be able to stream older shows from HBO's catalog. It will the first time a third-party service outside of HBO or HBO's Go service will be able to do so. http://recode.net/2014/04/23/amazon-makes-a-big-move-snags-older-hbo-shows/ 

The move represents one more strand of the "great unbundling" of shows and movies from distribution only through cable companies and broadcast networks. 

I see little risk of cannibalization of existing cable revenues represented by this move. Having even part of HBO's high quality catalog will be a strong selling point for Amazon this year as it rolls out its AmazonFire set-top devices and tablets.

I define ethics generally as the moral principles that govern a person or group's behavior in a given context. While it's true that what we see as moral exists within a given culture or time, does that baseline shift because of technology? Did societal progress with respect to the abolition of slavery, suffrage, or civil rights in the US occur because of technology, or in the context of it?
http://www.techrepublic.com/article/disruptive-technologies-pose-difficult-ethical-questions-for-society/

Each generation born into the 20th century has had new technologies and tools to learn to use ethically, from telephones to smartphones to drones and genetic tests. With each new technology, society has had to grapple with unethical uses and find new norms. Each ethical decision is made in context of the society it is made within, with a given technology acting as a tool or enabler of an... more »

New study by Princeton professors Gilen and Page: "The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government  policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence."

http://www.openthegovernment.org/node/4362

So far, it's primarily DC-based open government advocates. That should change, although the lack of promotion by the White House on its primary social media channels, like @OpenGov and @WhiteHouseOSTP, press releases or other vectors suggests that a quieter exchange of views between the administration and advocates is the goal. I'd be happy to be wrong.

Interesting analysis and set of recommendations for Craigslist from  Fabrice Grinda: http://www.fabricegrinda.com/business-musings/recommendations-for-craigslist/

"Craigslist is facing a great unbundling. Startups are attacking Craigslist category by category by offering a better user experience in a safer environment. They are successfully taking share from Craigslist despite the fact that they charge and that Craigslist is free. Moreover, by not addressing a few fundamental issues, Craigslist is failing in its stated mission of providing a free public service to the community.

All that said Craigslist has tremendous strengths. The site still has extraordinary liquidity and strong network effects. Despite being out of date, the site has three great things going for it from a product perspective: it’s simple, super-fast and mostly free."

So, Twitter bought Gnip. As with so many aspects of 21st century business, this was about the data. 

"As many people familiar with the matter put it to me in the past: Twitter had to charge for the access to prove it was valuable, but it wasn’t about reaping cash — it was about validating Twitter data as a desirable product," wrote Mike Isaac. "Perhaps with the Gnip acquisition, that stance has changed. Twitter will now bring the management of all of those relationships in-house, which could signal that it actually takes that revenue stream seriously."
