Robert Best2,685Google+ Relevance CircleWhat people of "relevance" do we have in common? Care to share?This big shared circle contains my most "relevant" circles according to G+. It also only contains people/profiles who post publicly (Either occasionally or prolifically).Do you recognize others in the list? (I think the probability is high)As far as I know, the visual beside the "Add people" button below shows you the 8 people from this circle who are most "relevant" to you. Also, if you click that add people button, the list inside is ordered by "relevance".Some people in this circle I know very well... others I haven't met at all (Besides interfacing with what they share publicly on G+) I'm curious, what circles do we share of high relevance? Give a few people shout outs! Let's have a random chat.You were likely notified of this post... I normally don't share to any of my specific circles, so as to avoid sending out unwanted notifications... But since I have you and your attention here... HELLO! Have we talked before? Why do you think I have you circled? What's of relevance for you? (Besides people on G+) If we do know each other... Have we been in touch lately? If not, let's please catch up!2015-03-03 01:03:39455111

Jd Geier883My Top 99 CircleThe #top99   #sharedcircles  are going around... I figure I don't share circles that often, so here's mine.  I tried to filter out family, businesses, non-users (deleted?)... but I may have missed one or two.If you're notified of this post, you're in it. :)Want to make your own?Go to circles. Make sure 'sort by relevance' is selected at the top. Drag and drop to select roughly 100 people. Make a new circle. Maybe edit out a few personal people etc.. but thats it.. pretty simple.. Share the circle with the little share button in the middle of the new circle and tag it with #top99. Done :)2012-07-25 02:14:3499102
Sophie Wrobel9,700Where Google+ fails: My shrinking geek circleWhere did all the real geeks go?This is my second circle share, and (like the first one) a very small circle. It is also one with many lesser-known faces. These are people who are not necessarily hackers, but they all have one thing in common, something that annoys everyone who doesn't understand geek culture, and that turns other geeks on - they will ruthlessly and methodolically take apart the semantics of anything you say, and go to utmost lengths to defend their reasoning. They will keep you sharp.I'm also sharing this circle as a call for help. This circle is the one circle that I curate that has shrunk considerably in the past few months. I figure it is high time to share it before it reduces itself to zero. Some of its ex-members are now homelessly wandering without a new platform to gather on. But where have the rest of this geek exodus gone off to?And, oh yes, the question which we all suspect an unspoken answer to but don't want to acknowledge it: why is Google so seemingly desperate to drive the geeks out?2012-06-28 06:11:2192115

Sophie Wrobel6,893Cream of the cream: My mentor circleThis is my first circle share. I've been rather hesitant to share circles as I feel that circle shares are incredibly impersonal: you get a pile of suggestions without any real idea why, or where they fit in your world. Then +Gideon Rosenblatt proposed a wonderful idea: a Google+ Mentors Circle. The idea being, you add people to this circle who you want to be your mentor, target them by following their posts and building a relationship with them so that you can win them as your mentor. And: what a circle to share! That is the 'cream of the cream' circle.While I don't follow that definition so strictly - I've always been one to silently observe and pick and choose qualities that I'd like to attain, and then copy particular 'role models' without necessarily asking for a more formal relationship - I did start collecting people whom I want to learn some particular quality from into a circle. Potential mentors, you could say. And then I realized: This wasn't a circle I could share. Some of those people were G+ lurkers. Others were using G+ as a Twitter-crosspost-outlet or Reader-sharing-outlet without actually engaging in conversation. So I removed them and was left with a circle of people whom I want to learn something from, who post insightful content and who respond to conversations actively. And that, fellow readers, is this circle. Since these people happen to also be 'big noisy people' on the most part, I expect you are already following some of them. If not, feel free to meet and greet, and/or guess what I'm trying to learn these days. :)I'll share a second circle, one with my favorite 'not-so-noisy' people to read based on content quality, later - again, as an attempt to counter the trend of sharing circles with too much noise.2012-04-01 22:44:0518303

John Kellden4,179The Moneyball TeamGoogle+ Visionaries, take 2An update of the circle I previously shared. I've removed most of the big hitters.I figured they're in the ten thousand range or more and will survive being cut. Will share them in a new circle in the not too distant future. I also removed some Google Pages. This is the Moneyball Team of Google+. And I mean that as the highest possible praise.#sharedcircles #sharedcircle #circleshare2012-03-19 13:04:39500648
John Kellden4,179Google+ VisionariesThese 365 people are mandatory to interact with. I suggest you set aside a moment each day for each one in this circle. Which is why I've added 365 people. Seriously, do.Ok, so it's not humanly possible to do that. Think of it as a Google+ smorgasbord of awesome people then.As with my previously shared link of 500 Great Google Plus People, I've looked at these people from a number of different angles. They passed with flying colours. :)#sharedcircles #sharedcircle #circleshare2012-03-19 11:09:54365231829
John Kellden4,057Great Google Plus PeopleWorth Waiting For. I've thrown every heuristic and the kitchen sink into this, pondering from a great many angles, with the intention of creating a shared circle that is nothing other than mindblowing. You won't get instant fame, fortune and world peace by interacting with this bunch of people, but pretty damn close. This is like an online portable, accessible, interactive Chautauqua. And then some. Enjoy!2012-03-17 15:45:4949913914
Todd Vierling1,010The Lesser Celebrities of Google+My first broad-based shared circle. These people aren't super-prolific posters with thousands of commenters like Scoble or +Mike Elgan (there's nothing wrong with that; his content is nifty, but I simply can't keep up).These folks may not have follower counts in the hundreds of thousands, but they regularly post things that are interesting, geeky, funny, thought-provoking, and generally worth the read. A good addition to anybody's stream.First point, this circle seriously needs more women, and I plan to reduce the gender divide (and increase the diversity in general) before re-sharing this circle. And secondly, after cobbling this list, I'm sure that I left out a dozen or more folks whom I intended to add here. So this circle will probably be a tad bit larger the next time I share it.2012-03-02 19:19:1026102

Forrest Thiessen382Cure for Slim Stream Syndrome (SSS)I was discussing with +Phil Tubb the other day that--in my experience--the way people use Facebook and Google+ are quite different. I've seen people follow family members and old friends and classmates on Facebook to learn about how friends are getting along, who's dating whom, what people had for dinner, etc... and when they come to G+ many of those people they follow on Facebook aren't here yet, so their stream is still and quiet ("just the sound of crickets", as +Aisha Thiessen told me). Unlike Facebook, though, G+ is much more about finding new friends and people whose interests you share, though--with a little poking around and a little "gardening" of your circles, you can find all kinds of interesting people... but how to get started finding those folks, and curing "Slim Stream Syndrome" ("SSS")?There are a growing number of ways to do this (searching G+ for a topic that interest you, for example), but one is to load yourself up with a "starter set" of G+ people that someone recommends to you as having interesting things to say (or at least that share funny cat photos...). I just spent half an hour quickly going through my circles and pulled together this "shared circle" of people who (a) post regularly on G+; (b) say interesting (or entertaining) things, and do it well (whether I always agree with them or not); and (c) encourage discussion. (It's not an all-inclusive list by any means--please don't be offended if I didn't include you!).If you're suffering from SSS, consider clicking on the "Add circle" link below--that will copy all these folks into a new circle in your G+ account, and away you go. If you don't like or enjoy what you're seeing from them, take them out of your circle, and they're gone; if you do, see who they're sharing things from and discussing things with, and you'll soon find other new people on your own to add to your circles.Have fun with it!2012-01-22 03:06:0739323

Here's his algorithm:

L1 = 1st detent, centered on a whole #, <11
L2 = 2nd detent, centered on a whole #, <11
R = single location on dial (whole or half) that has resistance (with shackle force just under getting into a detent)

1st # in combo: (ceil(R) + 5) % 40
2nd # in combo: n % 4 = (1st # % 4) + 2
3rd # in combo: (L1 or L2 + 10*n) % 4 = 1st # % 4
- prefer the one with more give

The method I knew (back in high school) for the 3rd # in combo was this:

Find all series of detents with same value %4 and increasing by 10. One of the series has 3 detents between numbers and 1 detent on a number; the latter is the 3rd # in the combo.

Then 1st %4 = 3rd %4 = (2nd %4) + 2, so 100 possible combinations to test.

This method for getting the 1st and 3rd much more quickly is new to me, at least. Anyone know an original... more »

In TSA / IFP news: the judge in my TSA case agreed to let me re-file a motion for IFP affidavit privacy (cf. s.ai/ifp). I have 2 weeks and 12 pages to make a full-bore argument for granting seal, or at least allowing interlocutory appeal if it's denied. I get to crib extensively from my attorneys' and amici's work on the cert petition, but I still have to write this one myself.

It's good news, though: we have another shot at preserving IFP affidavit privacy and/or bringing the issue back to SCOTUS on better footing. (We also have another plan for bringing it to SCOTUS unavoidably, but I can't discuss the details of that just yet.)

Practical issue: I need to rewrite my script for the BOS TSA video (intro, voiceover, outro), and decide how to compress the full length CCTV (40m) into something viral length (~6m total* including intro, outro, etc).

I'd appreciate help from someone willing to read the documents, watch the video, and help compose a better script & video edit.

I find dealing with this extremely distressing. I can do the mechanics of editing myself — 'video edit' above means an outline of what to do, eg "speed up from x to y, then go back to 1x speed, burn in subtitles at this time saying z, say this in voiceover during it, intercut this image here".

It's all the deciding and writing and having to look at it over and over that makes me have severe anxiety reactions to all of this, which is the biggest part of why I haven't been able to get it done yet…<... more »

+Yonatan Zunger How come +Google+ doesn't autosave drafts, for both posts and comments? Gmail solved this a while ago. It's annoying how often I've had a draft post or comment get wiped — e.g. by my phone running out of battery, by composing in the notification popup of a YT video and having it go to the next video in a playlist, by a browser OOM kill, etc etc.

Also, same gripe about the unviewed status — I'd want to (a) be sure that a yt video playlist advance (etc) won't make a notification go away that I'm not done reading, and (b) that I can set a notification to 'unviewed' if it turns out to be heavier weight to read / respond to / etc than I want to do at the moment.

Hello all. Community owner here. Spam content is a problem again, so again, clarification about the rules:

Posts must link directly to original, peer reviewed research. You can also include another link if it is a value add — e.g. an expert-level explainer, context, etc — but not link shorteners and not random blogs or popsci dumbing down.

Interviews (including HOAs) that are about expert level topics (e.g. talking about anything recently published in a peer reviewed cogsci related journal will count, as will academic-level interviews with people who have such publications), or other resources at a similar level, are also OK.

However, if it's something an undergrad in cogsci would be taught, it is not appropriate to this community. Neither are random musings, blog posts, inspirational quotes, etc.

Community guidelines

Posts must:
1. be of academic interest to experts (i.e. someone already trained in cogsci or one of its related fields)
2. link directly to the original source material discussed (e.g. the actual research paper, not a blog or popular media discussion of it)
3. not be commercial (with rare exceptions, e.g. for companies' posts of actual research)
4. have comments enabled and not delete comments (summon a mod if there's a problem)

We've had a lot of posts lately that are of marginal quality, or are questions that a cogsci undergrad night have in their early years. Because of the breadth of the field, this is quite wide indeed, and dilutes the value of the community.

I'm adopting the same standard here that I did with the Computer Security & Lockpicking community[0]: for experts by experts, so that the signal to noise ratio is high for those of us who are in the field.

There are lots of other avenues for more newbie level discussion; this will not be one of them.

Current moderators are +Melissa Hall, +Michael Bernstein, and +Richard Law.


If you have any questions, issues with moderation, or would like to help moderate, please leave a comment on this post.

Sincerely,
Your friendly neighborhood community owner / meta-moderator

That includes open source coding (including +Make Your Laws, but other stuff too; see github.com/saizai), legal stuff (TSA, FEC, privacy, etc), +CogSai (I have several scripts that aren't yet recorded or illustrated, but could if I was funded), privacy-focused security research (e.g. SSN prediction), +Language Creation Society stuff (e.g. possibly a reboot of interviews), etc. etc.*

1. Would you be interested in supporting me? (Is it worth doing this?)
2. What milestone goals would be interesting? (E.g. at $x/month I start doing y)
3. What rewards would you find, well, rewarding? (E.g. contributors of $x+/month get y)

* Almost everything I do is non-profit & open source. However, this would count purely as a gift to me-personally. It's not 501(c) tax deductible and not a contribution to MYL or the LCS. IANAL (yet), so nothing I do is legal advice, opinion, representation, etc.

MYL adds some regulatory restrictions. Tl;dr: this is for supporting me personally with whatever I happen to be doing. Supporters can't get any say on what or how much I do with MYL, and I can't offer any MYL-related goals/rewards.

Funds will go to simply paying my bills — rent, food, health care, travel, etc.___Welp, here it is:

+Make Your Laws just submitted a petition for rulemaking to the Federal Election Commission.

It proposes that the FEC prohibit contribution laundering (aka "dark money") — funneling contributions through 501(c)(4) or similar organizations to avoid public disclosure of the original contributor's identity — by requiring corporations contributing more than $1k/yr to do so exclusively from an FEC-reported bank account, and require original (not just proximate) source disclosure.

Hopefully our proposal will help fix this particular problem, while avoiding court challenges and the privacy & free speech concerns of previous attempts (like the DISCLOSE Act).

Public and private feedback & discussion is welcome. See full details in the PDF @  link.

ETA: His teardown / explanation video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkolWO6pAL8

The 1st & 3rd attack is based on the shackle retainer clip interacting with a superfluous lock wheel connection dimple.

Here's his algorithm:

L1 = 1st detent, centered on a whole #, <11
L2 = 2nd detent, centered on a whole #, <11
R = single location on dial (whole or half) that has resistance (with shackle force just under getting into a detent)

1st # in combo: (ceil(R) + 5) % 40
2nd # in combo: n % 4 = (1st # % 4) + 2
3rd # in combo: (L1 or L2 + 10*n) % 4 = 1st # % 4
- prefer the one with more give

The method I knew (back in high school) for the 3rd # in combo was this:

Find all series of detents with same value %4 and increasing by 10. One of the series has 3 detents between numbers and 1 detent on a number; the latter is the 3rd # in the combo.

Then 1st %4 = 3rd %4 = (2nd %4) + 2, so 100 possible combinations to test.

This method for getting the 1st and 3rd much more quickly is new to me, at least. Anyone know an original source for the discovery?

Sai v TSA updates: 
#60: TSA says I have no right to get a response to my complaints in the first place, let alone to enforce such a right, because I could have just sued them instead of going through the administrative process.

#61: TSA grudgingly responds to my FRCP 56 statement… improperly. Doesn't deny or admit 5 items (with no specific record reference); doesn't admit the content of email for 42 items (just refers the court to my filing of redacted versions thereof); claims I didn't provide enough record for 9 items, but provides none for their denial; and denies one (major) item with no cited basis whatsoever.

This actually violates a court order that they properly respond to my statement. So I guess we'll be having another chat with the judge about it.

#62: supplement to TSA's motion to dismiss; much like #60, but saying that also I should get individual-defendant claims tossed because of the Westfall Act [… it's complicated]

#63: individual defendants' motion to dismiss, saying there's no personal jurisdiction and venue is improper; that they have qualified immunity, even if they intentionally delayed or obstructing my complaint, which they say I can't prove anyway; that they're immune under the Westfall Act anyway; etc


Oh, and they still haven't responded to my March 2013 complaint about SFO… which they were required to respond to within 6 months. It's been over 2 years now.

They admitted fault to +RightThisMinute just a couple days after my interview was broadcast, and FOIA docs show they had their response to me written over a year ago… but evidently an official apology, not just PR spin, is beyond them.___

Does anyone in the audience believe both:
a) your/all morals come from the Torah, Bible, Quran, Book of Mormon, or other derivatives and
b) your god is non-temporal, unchanging, always moral, expresses universal morality, or the like?

I've seen these two beliefs expressed by some people, but never defended, and I wonder how someone who genuinely holds them both manages to reconcile (short of discarding parts of their holy book wholesale).

I'm aware of the 'new covenant' bit in Christianity, but that doesn't get you past (b) with respect to e.g. old testament statements of 'moral' actions.

(If you don't hold both beliefs above, feel free to /sub but please don't answer on behalf of what you think people with them may believe.)

Dear +YouTube googlers: please add the option to add separate audio tracks to videos, just like separate CC localizations. A couple reasons:
a) audio translations
b) audio description for the blind
c) easier removal of copyright claims on music in video (without reupload or wiping non-music content)

I've never understood why, legally, we give a higher status to claims that are "religious" than to other beliefs.

In related news: anyone interested in helping start a US non-profit religious organization (i.e. "church") based on Kopkimi and/or atheism? (Cost: ~$1500 per in IRS & incorporation fees. Benefit: claim that your views on copyright / atheism are religious, be an ordained minister, and you could use the church as an umbrella for appropriate litigation, if you pay for it. If Hobby Lobby gets to, so should you.)

…a fractal tongue? O.o

The Gorgonorhynchus
So the strange white thing that seems to “erupt” from the worm is its proboscis. This is a tubular sucking organ that some worms use to feed.
During eversion, which takes place almost explosively, the short main trunk first appears, then this divides and the finer and filter branches appear, but since each one of these is the result of an evagination the effect is almost indescribable. It is as if a large number of lively, wriggling, minute worms had been shot out.
