Charles Cortes (Chuckster)2,842The Best Of 2012 – Chuck’s “The Amazing Circle” 100 Favorite GPlussers You Should Have Circled2012 has been mostly a good year for me, especially with Google+ being my social home and watching as my following grow thru out the year. I have met lots of awesome people and enjoyed some really cool upgrades to Google+. Now that the year is ending and a new one is about to start I wanted to share one of my favorite circles I call The Amazing Circle that is chock full of awesomeness. These are my top 100 favorite people to follow as they each have something that makes them special be it the awesome posts they share or the excellent comments they make. Everything from beautiful images, funny jokes and gifs, interesting articles on technology, politics and current events and also great opinions on just about any topic. These people have earned my respect even when we sometimes don’t agree. So hurry up and circle these GPlussers and watch your stream come to life. #mybest2012  2012-12-27 19:58:2410012137

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 : 2012-12-16 23:54:20209641038

To the best of my ability everyone in this circles has personally hungout with me... and it was fun.. :)This circle is where I have made the most lasting connections on G+.... Meeting many of these people in real life since I met them in hangouts. I joined G+ Jun 29th, 2011. I hung out then and pretty much most days since. I was voted Google+ Hangout Queen this year :)I've seen amazing things in hangouts, Tours of far away countries, cooking classes, airplane trips, photowalks, concerts, language lessons, trivia nights, relationship advice, seeing famous landmarks, attending behind the scenes of tv shows, hangouts with famous celebrities, and countless late night and early morning hangouts with fabulous normal people from all parts of the world and right next door... TV shows have nothing on this. Countless experiences all without leaving my living room.If you want to try out hangouts on G+, ADD THIS CIRCLE and join one!

My Gmail inbox is, and has always been, a dumpster fire. Despite numerous attempts at Inbox Zero across my eight years of use in three Gmail accounts, the end result has always been the same. Things got better in the last year with tabs in Gmail, but I've never been particularly well organized with my messages. 

Inbox does nothing to fix this. In fact, hilariously, in some ways it makes things worse by just letting me hide stuff I won't ever open. Instead, it gives me better tools to deal with emails that are important.

Things I would either like to learn how to make or have someone else make for me.

- Hue app for Android TV that sets scenes from my voice and automatically dims the living room lights when a movie is being played. Interactive color matching optional.

- Chrome extension that lets people know that the site they have arrived at is a satire page, with options to share the page and keep the joke going instead of ruining it for everyone who enjoys seeing people freak out at nothing. 

- Mobile AR app that plots the safest path to your vehicle in a parking lot, with a quiz system that determines how sober you are and prompts an Uber summoning if you fail and a text message to an approved contact. 

- Peapod grocery tracker that lets you speak aloud when you've used all of something and adds it to your online order list.

Google's play to make Android a top-tier brand name is a big deal, and nearly every facet of their business is now geared towards making that happen.

So far I am so very impressed by what I see with Android 5.0. It's interesting to see such a heavy UI focus, and the level of polish in that UI is just incredible. This update is so much more than just a coat of paint, though. There are hundreds of small changes everywhere and it all adds up in interesting ways without really disrupting how you use your phone. 

Here are the rest of my initial thoughts. I am now so much more excited to spend time with the Nexus 9, and I can't wait to see what developers do with all of the new things out there in Android land.

This is one of the sketches +Aaron Wood did for the Pyreflies. It was actually the first sketch he showed me for these critters in the book, and very nearly caused me to change everything I had already written to support the color change. Ultimately I kept things the same because I liked thinking that they looked like regular fireflies from a distance. The whole point for this particular race of Space Monster was to have them appear harmless until it was too late, and as fantastic as the reddish orange looked on paper it was hard to get away with that design in what I had written.

This is a great story, and +Joshua Muñoz is entirely deserving in my opinion. 

The +Big Android BBQ 5, or, Dreams Do Come True: Part II

Wow, where do I even begin? As I come down from what has easily been one of the most memorable and humbling experiences in my short life, (post-BBQ depression, I've seen it called), I've tried to also find the words to accurately express what this weekend meant to me.

It's hard to describe what this weekend was like, not only as a spectator (not often), but also as a little one-man operation trying to keep things going.

Some of you might remember a long post I wrote on my personal Google+ page (at +Joshua Muñoz) when my Indiegogo campaign was fairly funded about how I wouldn't have been able to get it had it not been for Google+, and that's absolutely true.

If anything, it feels like the Big Android BBQ was an extension of that, or the next iteration of that, or something. Am I not making sense? Let me backtrack.

Last November, when I had the dream of buying a laser engraving machine and starting Android Etch, I didn't even know if that would be possible. Before that, back in 2011 when I initially had the idea, I was going etched glasses by hand at the rate of maybe one or two a night.

The room for error was high, it made my hands hurt, I was a poor college student, it was a mess. Still, when I posted my first picture of an Android-branded pint glass, I remember the small pang of hope when people seemed interested in it. Because of that, I held the dream of making Android Etch a reality near and dear to my heart.

When I was asked to do glasses for the early bird registrants and ticket package buyers, I was floored. Little ol' me, doing glasses for something the size of the Big Android BBQ? Just being asked was humbling.

And I guess that's one of the things I keep circling back to, how humbled and grateful I am, not only for being able to go and sponsor an event like this, but also just the incredible amount of generosity and kindness I was shown from nearly every attendee I spoke to.

For those that don't know, I thought I could pull this thing off by myself, and I definitely couldn't. There were boxes upon boxes to move, a machine to move, five gallons of water, etc. I was silly for thinking I could do it alone.

Yet, when I asked, people answered the call to help, giving up their time and strength selflessly, to help this one guy with a laser machine try and succeed.

With that, many, many thanks are in order. If I forget you, please don't be offended! Know that I am unbelievably floored at how wonderful everyone was to me this past weekend.

To +Derek Ross, +Ara Wagoner, +Nick Clancy, +Josh Wilson, and anyone else I might have forgotten, thank you for helping me move equipment when I couldn't do it alone. Y'all were lifting and sweating when you didn't need to be, and I really appreciate it.

Also, thanks for being such an awesome roommate, +Derek Ross!

To +Scott Good (why is it not letting me tag you?), +April Good (same issue, boo!), +Carmen Mobberly, +David Price,  +Parag Patel, +Rob Watkins, +Michael M and anyone else who kept me company at the booth (+Derek Ross gets another shout here, as well!), thank!

To +Mikki Torres, +Martin Smythé,  +Corry Robb, +John Katzman and any of the other hard working volunteers and staff at the BBQ, thank you! Mad props to Corry and John for putting up with all of my emails asking them when I could get into the convention center on Friday morning.

To +Laurie DesAutels and +Kimberly Ann Graham for helping me promote the brand (along with any tags and shares you all have done!), thank you! Me and +Kimberly Ann Graham had a little spat online earlier, but I'm happy to say we're friends now!

To all my friends from the internet that I finally got to meet in person, which includes but isn't limited to +Jody B, +Lauren Ward, +Daniel Ward, +Aiman Farooq, +Jeffrey Young, +Keyan X, +Asher Simonds, +Cee-Jay Mabin, +John Bowdre, +Mychal Hix, +Joey Cohen, +Robert Warren, +Ken Auenson, and anyone else I've forgotten or can't tag, it was GREAT finally getting to meet you!

To +Ray Walters, for tirelessly working on making sure everyone was fed to their hearts content with delicious BBQ.

To +Chris Sewell and +Shen Ye, thank you for the awesome pictures!

To +Chet Haase, for being the largest single order at the BBQ! :)

And finally, this probably goes without saying, I have the utmost thanks for +Aaron Kasten. Without Aaron, all of this, sponsoring, Android Etch, the entire thing, would still be a dream.

I'm not sure when I met Aaron, or in what capacity, but I've always sort of known of him, and at some point, I started chatting with him online every now and again. Probably because of AndroidSWAG, I'd ask him a lot of business-related questions.

When I launched by Indiegogo campaign to get my laser, things weren't going well. I was probably only about 50% funded or so and I was starting to get nervous that it wasn't going to work out.

Cue Aaron changing my life.

He messages me and tells me he'd like to give my campaign a $1,000 'donation' from the Big Android BBQ on the grounds that I'd do 110 pint glasses for the actual event. With that single donation, I was within striking distance, and I went through with the campaign with the intention of buying (and financing) a laser machine.

I bought the machine, fulfilled my backer's orders, and waited. There was no explosion of sales, the clouds didn't open and angels come down, nothing. I continued to make payments on the machine out of my teacher paycheck.

A few months ago, Aaron messages me again and asks me if I can do a bigger order for the BBQ than originally intended. Instead of just a few pint glasses, now I was in charge of early bird pint glasses, shot glasses, and shot glasses for special ticket packages buyers.

Again, with that, my life was changed, since it was the first time since I'd started that I wasn't in the red.

Simply put, if there was no +Aaron Kasten, there would be no Android Etch. Aaron has supported me, backed me at every turn, and enabled me to try and make something of this, and without him, I wouldn't be writing this message right now.

So, Aaron, thank you, for everything. I can't put into words how much your friendship and support has meant and continues to mean to me. I am truly, truly indebted to you.

Sorry for the length and the excessive sappiness, everyone, but I've been waiting since I got back on Sunday to say all of this.

As I finish writing this with a small lump in my throat, I hope you'll all stay in touch and that we can see each other again next year.

If you can help me get the word out, I'd love for everyone I interacted with to see this post, and I've got a limited audience here (~360), so any and all shares are appreciated.

Till next year, friends.

Despite the issues we had during the experience, and of course the sadness felt in not being able to attend this event in person, I find myself completely fascinated by the potential found in this technology.
