Alex Grossman56,667G+ Engagers CircleIt's been a while since I shared a circle, so here's a small circle of people I recommend following. They are great to engage with, full of energy and opinions and fun, with very little anger, disrespect, or poor manners. Hope you enjoy all of them as much as I do. They certainly make my time in G+ lots of fun. :)2013-08-22 03:31:187510711
Meirav M.7,705Meirav's 42some people have been sharing circles of 100, but me, I like smaller numbers. and seriously, as someone who has under 200 people circled in total, picking 100 would be way over the top. so I went for the obvious number of 42 :)These are not my top favourite 42 or my most relevant according to some algorithm or anything of the sort. And I will not tell you that they are the most wonderful people on earth, the creme de la creme of plusland, the greatest engagers or influencers or whatever managementspeak term is the word du jour. I'll be honest with you, as I tend to be when I'm not making up stories about penguins and stuff, and tell you the truth:These are all people I have had in my circles for a while and I like having them in my circles. They've grown on me. They've become part of my pluslife. I can't know if you'll also enjoy having them in your circles, because I'm not you and you're not me, we have different interests and different preferences and just as you might prefer a different ice cream flavour (I'm a Ben & Jerry's cookie dough gal) you are likely to find different people interesting or fun - but here's a circle of 42 people for you to try out if you would like to, and if you find that some of them are not quite your scene then you can always uncircle them. There's no "till death us do part" in plusland :)and no, you absolutely don't have to add them. It's just in case you are looking for more people to populate your stream.You are, in any case, welcome to cookies from the penguin's self-replenishing jar. We will always have cookies. #SharedCircles  2013-08-10 00:32:3242615

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130

Marc Jansen29,662A circle of the people, by the people, and for the people (of my circles)Earlier today, I asked people to pick a number from 1-300 with the intent of coming back later and putting together a shared-circle that represented that input.After consolidating the data, I was left with 91 unique responses.  (Yes, I counted each and every number given to me, rounding where needed and substituting 1 for i, as it was as close as I could get.)I then selected the top 300+ people from my circles based up on relevance, and then removed those whom I know dislike being part of shared circles and a few folks who've apparently gone MIA, back-filling as need to get me back to 300, and then started matching names according to Google's relevance ranking with the 91 numbers you folks provided to me.So, I now present to you:  _a random selection of 91 of the top-300 people in my circles, chosen by you, the people IN my circles._This circle is made up of people and pages from all walks of life, and all corners of the globe, but they all have one thing on common - I found them interesting enough to circle, and they tend to be folks that I interact with on a fairly regular basis.(If you don't see your name here, do not blame me, by the way, I was completely impartial throughout this entire selection process.)2012-12-04 21:06:379230217

Alex Grossman27,422Last time I shared a relevancy circle was back in July. From then until now (October 19), it's only changed by 7 people, and most but not all of that was near the end of the list. So, it's remarkably consistent.These 99 users are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself, so a total of 100). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is definitely more accurate now than last time. Does the algorithm get better over time due to more data? I still suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd still be curious and interested to learn more about it.Anyway, these people are relevant to me and truly help me enjoy my time sharing, talking, discussing, and hanging out on G+. So, thank you to all of you :)TGIF and have a great start to the weekend!P.S. - Typical inconsistent G+ - I could share the Movie Lovers Circle earlier today with about 130 people being notified. However, by mid-morning I couldn't notify the 99 people in this Circle. Now, I can again. But it appears that instead of setting a limit on the number of people in a circle, maybe they've set a limit on the number of people you could notify in a set period of time? Very strange. If anybody has any clue as to why this is, please let me know.2012-10-20 03:24:2710023124

Alex Grossman27,364It's TGIF so hope you have a great day. Here's a Circle I thought I'd share today for Follow Friday - Movie Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about movies, all kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, engaging with others, sharing and exchanging comments, please let me know and I can try and add you to this Circle (notification limits permitting). If you're a member of this circle, you agree to participate in a respectful manner. Due to the changing and, at times uncertain, notification restrictions Google has in terms of number of people you can notify with a post I've split this up into two Circle.

Alex Grossman24,371My Top 99 circle - is Relevancy Accurate?These are the 99 users who are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is surprisingly accurate until the last bit of it when some names appeared and others were left off. I suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd be curious to continue the discussions I've seen on other similar threads this week.Want to create your own? (instructions borrowed/stolen from +Max Huijgen )► Click circles on the tab on the right► Make sure relevance is selected (default)► Select the top 99 users. (Drag a box around them)► Drag the whole group to "drop here to create new circle"► The new circle will open up. Make sure its 99 and adjust it if needed► Share it and use the hashtag #top99  and #sharedcircles   #top99   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  +Shared Circles on G+ +CircleCount If you got notified you are one of the 99.2012-07-26 17:22:4510040731

This is my response when I tell people that I like Ruby and they say "But Python is so much simpler."

That said I'm picking Python back up for the first time in about 12 years.  A lot has changed (and not just the thickness of the book)!

This is my response when I tell people that I like Ruby and they say "But Python is so much simpler."

That said I'm picking Python back up for the first time in about 12 years.  A lot has changed (and not just the thickness of the book)!

So, as many of you know, I work for +Salesforce.  Our CEO, +Mark Benioff is pushing support for +Code.org's Hour of Code fundraiser and encouraging us to participate by contributing, volunteering our time to teach, etc.  I agree that this is important and I hope you'll take the time to look at what they have on their indigogo page and support them as well.  They have a long way to go on raising what they need, and they're doing something important for the next generation of our industry.  

I think all of us can remember the moment when someone introduced us to the secrets that gave us power over the computer.  That gave us access to the tool that would change our lives and define our careers.  There are millions of children out there right now for whom you can make that moment happen again.

Awesome.

I heard about this project while listening to NPR today. Keep in mind that no photoshop was used at all.

"Renowned photographer Sandro Miller has worked together with legendary Hollywood A-Lister John Malkovich many times, but when Miller wanted to celebrate the photography greats that had inspired and guided him, he had to do something special. So he, with Malkovich as his dashing unisex model, recreated some of those influential photographers’ most important portraits in a photo series called “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to photographic masters.”

60,000 generations of people ago, Homo Erectus was walking around in Asia. It's deep enough in time that evolutionary changes on this scale are no longer subtle, but obvious -- but also deep enough in time that we can only examine it through archaeology. But what if we could replicate this in the lab?

Richard Lenski of Michigan State University has come up with a way to do just that: using E. coli, whose generations are far shorter. When the experiment began in 1988, he placed twelve genetically identical single cells of E. coli (they reproduce asexually, so you don't need a large starter population) in twelve petri dishes, and exposed them to a particular, predictable environment that they weren't used to: 6 hours of food, followed by 18 hours of starvation, every day.

60,000 generations of people ago, Homo Erectus was walking around in Asia. It's deep enough in time that evolutionary changes on this scale are no longer subtle, but obvious -- but also deep enough in time that we can only examine it through archaeology. But what if we could replicate this in the lab?

Richard Lenski of Michigan State University has come up with a way to do just that: using E. coli, whose generations are far shorter. When the experiment began in 1988, he placed twelve genetically identical single cells of E. coli (they reproduce asexually, so you don't need a large starter population) in twelve petri dishes, and exposed them to a particular, predictable environment that they weren't used to: 6 hours of food, followed by 18 hours of starvation, every day.

Every 500 generations, a sample from each of these twelve lines was frozen. (E. coli takes well to freezing; they just stop doing anything until they're thawed) 

This past April, they passed the 60,000-generation mark. All twelve lines changed to grow faster during flush times and to have larger cells -- reasonable adaptations to their environment -- but the details in each line varied. 

Experiments like these let us really understand the effects of chance on evolution, the speed at which traits can evolve, and so on. This isn't obvious because evolution, especially in asexually reproducing creatures, works by a "random ratchet:" each generation may have some small differences from the last (how many? Are some kinds of differences more likely than others?) and this may or may not help the individuals survive and thrive. (But will that individual encounter circumstances where their particular genetic heritage is a help or a hindrance? Or will they simply get eaten randomly before they can reproduce, thanks to something unpredictable?) Selection pressures mean that genes better adapted to the situation on the average will spread more than genes less adapted to the situation, but without real experiments like these -- in incredibly simplified and controlled situations like a fixed environment and an asexual species -- we can't get a good handle on how quickly things can adapt.

There are many more deep-time experiments which would be interesting to do, and the possibility of exploring tens of thousands of generations within a few decades makes it possible, although not easy. What would the speed be like if they could reproduce sexually, swapping traits? What would happen if half the lines were placed in one environment, and half in another -- could we clock the rate at which the lines diverged?

Sometimes, science requires patience.
