Paige Keaton54,103I shared this circle earlier and realized it was lacking a lot of women that I have circled. I went through my other circles and found about 300 more just glancing. I have added these women and would like to share it with you.  Be kind to the women I am sharing with you today. I don't share circles often but I hear a lot that G+ is mostly male. I have spent a lot of time finding good women. This is not a porn circle if that is what you are into. This is NOT a HOT WOMEN  circle. This is a circle of real women who have a G+ page just like me.  #circleshare   #circlesharing   #womenofgoogleplus  2013-10-30 17:36:0450023821

Matt Gibson920,723Ok so we are going to try something different here...As you may have noticed, I am sharing a circle of really cool people and pages for you to add to your circles.  If you want cool content from cool people - add the circle!  It's that simple!  If YOU would like your profile to be shared to almost 1 million people, leave me a comment that tells me a little bit about YOU.  What do you like?  What is your favorite music?  Where do you live?  Let's get to know each other!  What are your social network or website addresses (simply posting a link without telling me about YOU won't make the cut btw)?Here is an example:Hi!  My name is +Matt Gibson and I am an independent artist working on my 1st album!  I like all forms of music but I tend to lean towards metal.  I play guitar, piano, drums and saxophone as well as sing!  You can check out my website at www.crimsonsymphony.com and you can subscribe to my +YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/crimsonsymphonymusicI like books by great authors like Tolkien, +TERRY BROOKS  and Raymond Feist among others.  I read a lot of non-fiction as well on subjects like business, marketing, antiques and tech.I am an amateur gardener and I aspire to own my own beehives.I like reading your posts because you are such a handsome fellow with that long wavy hair and manly beard and....ahem ok you can skip that part unless you really mean it LOL.Now that's not hard is it?  Tell me about yourself and get your profile shared to a million people!  Not a bad deal eh?New and OLD friends can participate but no cheating or dumb comments like "add me" or "hi".  You should all thank +Amanda Blain for giving me this idea to steal for our benefit btw... so let the fun and networking begin!!PS If your comment is really cool you may find yourself in the next Cool People circle and who knows, maybe we will become friends or colleagues? 2013-10-03 00:47:03249721243

[We lost a good one today.]

One of the best. I reference this scene at least once per year.

"Those are the things I miss the most. The little idiosyncrasies that only I know about. That's what made her my wife. Oh, and she had the goods on me, too. She knew all my little peccadilloes. 

"People call these things imperfections, but they're not. Oh, that's the good stuff. And then we get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds. 

"You're not perfect, sport. And let me save you the suspense: This girl you met, she isn't perfect either. But the question is whether or not you're perfect for each other. That's the whole deal. That's what intimacy is all about."

Looking at my social feeds right now is just too upsetting. Every single post is a tribute to Robin Williams, and it's breakingm... more »

[It took a few days, but now I know why Robin Williams' death hit me so hard.]

These past couple days I've felt raw. I've felt uncomfortable, unsettled, distressed, on edge. I haven't been sleeping well, tossing and turning beneath my sheets, my mind racing.  

I've been unusually upset over Robin Williams' death since I heard the news, but I couldn't quite pinpoint why. And despite this seething unease, and contrary to my normal, empath self, I hadn't yet let out a primal sob of mourning as one might expect. 

But then...last night. Like a startling, sobering break through the fourth wall, last night my Facebook feed was flooded not with the normal, banal status updates of gym boasting and selfies, but with conversely weighted, gut-wrenching news story after news story from around the world. It hit me on all sides, relentlesslys... more »

[Ello. Goodbye.]

To those of you all in tizzy over Ello: seriously you guys? You're this rabid over a network that can't even specify what the requirements are for a username and pass, and when it rejects your submission it doesn't tell you why? Nor does it require you to submit your password twice to ensure that what you entered is what you thought your entered?

Who the shit made this? Someone that's never seen a website before?

That ill-conceived on-boarding alone, not to mention the privacy concerns, makes me never want to use it again. Simple, beautiful, & amateur as fuck.

[We Flooded Wall Street]

As the day-long protest on Wall Street today winded down, and I weaved my way through the crowd toward the subway, I overheard a civilian inquiring of a police officer what was going on.

"Oh, so they're trying to take over the street?" she asked.

The officer scoffed. "Yeah, but they're not going to."

"Not going to?" I stopped in my tracks to interrupt proudly. "What do you mean not going to? WE DID."

[Creative parenting at its best? Or worst? You decide!]

I'll admit it. I was a major temper-tantrum thrower when I was a kid. My parents, my mom especially, quickly realized that the best way to break me out of it and my sulky mood was to make light of the situation and to get me to laugh. (A teasing "I see that smile..." and "Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na BRAT GIRL!"--sung to the tune of the Batman theme song--were two of the most often utilized.)

This dad, however, takes it to a whole new level. Hysterical.

I know some people have criticized the family for not responding compassionately to the child in distress, but I have a feeling those naysayers have never had children. ;)

Is praise poisonous?

"Unhurried, she talked to the child, but more importantly she observed, she listened. She was present.

"Presence, he argues, helps build the child’s confidence by way of indicating he is worthy of the observer’s thoughts and attention — its absence, on the other hand, divorces in the child the journey from the destination by instilling a sense that the activity itself is worthless unless it’s a means to obtaining praise. Grosz reminds us how this plays out for all of us, and why it matters throughout life:

"Being present, whether with children, with friends, or even with oneself, is always hard work. But isn’t this attentiveness — the feeling that someone is trying to think about us — something we want more than praise?"

Put away all of my laundry fresh out the dryer last night, and fuck if I didn't get my usual surge of smug, prideful satisfaction.

"Shit yeah. I am such a fucking adult. My life is so god damn together."

Then, as always, I remember that I am 30, and this really shouldn't be hailed as an accomplishment anymore.  :/

Huge, huge milestone for women in tech. 

Google's own Megan Smith just became CTO of the United States.

Go, ladies, go!

Megan Smith Named CTO of the United States!

Today +Megan Smith (formerly VP at Google[x]) joins President +Barack Obama as the Chief Technology Officer of the United States of America. Megan co-founded Women Techmakers in 2012 with +Stephanie Liu, and seeing the potential for building on the movement to empower women in technology, Megan and I created my current role as Google's Women in Technology Advocate. Megan has been an advisor to Women Techmakers despite her busy schedule advocating for women and children globally, and I'm honored to have worked side-by-side with her to enact change. I'm proud of my friend and mentor, and look forward to seeing the impact she'll make in her new role.

Can someone with more engineering smarts figure out how I can fix this?

My rolling rack is suddenly slumping on one side. Seems the right-side clamp doesn't want to hold the bar at its height anymore, and it slowly droops down on one side. 

And no, fewer dresses is not a viable option. ahem

"But, but…here is the thing. In terms of the internet, nothing has happened yet. The internet is still at the beginning of its beginning. If we could climb into a time machine and journey 30 years into the future, and from that vantage look back to today, we’d realize that most of the greatest products running the lives of citizens in 2044 were not invented until after 2014. People in the future will look at their holodecks, and wearable virtual reality contact lenses, and downloadable avatars, and AI interfaces, and say, oh, you didn’t really have the internet (or whatever they’ll call it) back then."

What are you still holding out for? What do you think the future of tech will be?

[Why do we always have to be doing something?]

It was such a nice day out that all I wanted to do was just be outside this evening enjoying the warm and weightless air.

So I grabbed my kindle. Made sure my phone was charged. Contemplated bringing my laptop, and considered what I might work on to keep myself busy seated out in my backyard--even though I was totally burnt out looking at a screen all day. This gathering of gadgets to keep me occupied was compulsive.

Then I remembered that it's absolutely okay to just be outside doing nothing but nothing at all. Unengaged. Still mind. Still body. Letting being outside be reason enough.

Funny how we're so conditioned to think we have to always be doing something.

[It took a few days, but now I know why Robin Williams' death hit me so hard.]

These past couple days I've felt raw. I've felt uncomfortable, unsettled, distressed, on edge. I haven't been sleeping well, tossing and turning beneath my sheets, my mind racing.  

I've been unusually upset over Robin Williams' death since I heard the news, but I couldn't quite pinpoint why. And despite this seething unease, and contrary to my normal, empath self, I hadn't yet let out a primal sob of mourning as one might expect. 

But then...last night. Like a startling, sobering break through the fourth wall, last night my Facebook feed was flooded not with the normal, banal status updates of gym boasting and selfies, but with conversely weighted, gut-wrenching news story after news story from around the world. It hit me on all sides, relentlessly slamming me with a right hook, then a left hook, then a right hook, then a left. Punch after punch. 

There were journalism articles about the teenage Michael Brown being shot dead in the street. About his grieving community being further beaten down by police, about them peacefully fighting for justice, all while knowing that they once again, likely won't get it. Because they're poor, and black. 

Then after that, in painful contrast, a story of the time Robin Williams burst into Christopher Reeve's hospital room dressed as a Russian proctologist sent to perform a rectal exam, just to get a laugh out of his old friend facing the very real possibility of death. 

After that there was the story about the young gay man savagely beaten unconscious this week and left to die in a San Francisco park. About my community back home alarmed and frighten by the rising rate of violent crimes in our city so known for its love and tolerance. 

And then? Someone recounting the time Robin Williams sat down and shared laughter and late-night diner coffee with a shell-shocked family just come from their grandparents' wake. It was the first time they'd smiled in days.

Articles about children dying in Gaza, menacing threats of us bombing Iraq again, athleticism once more taking precedence over rape, Sudan refugees, Ukraine violence...

And between each of these, more personal accounts from ordinary people and celebrities alike of Robin Williams being a kind, honest, generous, compassionate man humbly spreading light and laughter everywhere he went. 

These stories of his unconditional love for everyone who crossed paths with him appeared innumerable, streaming into my news feed faster than I could consume them, and yet always seemingly kept pace by other stories of tragedy, horror, unspeakable cruelty, injustice. The way these narratives of Robin's silent heroism were so evenly dispersed between news of terrifying inhumanity...for a moment it felt like Robin alone had taken on the world, made it his personal mission to do everything he could to counteract the darkness he felt internally, and witnessed externally, by beaming out his beacon of joy and irreverent silliness, and by tirelessly committing to random acts of kindness everywhere he went.

It was dizzying, this polarized influx of information, pulling my emotions every which way, but at least it felt in balance, alternately interspersed like this. For a moment it felt like we'd be all right. That there was just enough hope and sweetness in the world to get us through.

And then I came to this photo.

And I fell apart. 

It was 1:30 AM and I wept in my apartment.

That face. That tenderness. That vulnerability. It ripped me to shreds because Robin's spark was one of the brightest of them all, and this week, despite his own pleading advice to us, he lost it. He lost the fight. And the world dimmed immeasurably.

The fact is, and as trite as this is to say, we need people like Robin in this world. Now more than ever. And yet even he couldn't bear it anymore. And as Russell Brand so astutely questioned, "Is it melancholy to think that a world that he can’t live in must be broken?" 

But here we are still, while he is not, left to process all the torment and unrest in the world. How can we not feel alone? Abandoned? Hopeless? But as his family urged in the days after his death, use his life as inspiration. If even he could search through his deep, internal darkness of depression and dredge up light and kindness to share with the world, imagine what the rest of us could do. Just imagine.
 
So do it. No matter small or big, do it. And do it now. It's never too late, never too early.

And oh, hey: love you, noodles. It's always, always good to mention that, too. ♥

[Something is happening with our police. And we're all affected.]

Oof. Powerful piece. Discusses not just race relations: 

"By all accounts, Brown was One Of The Good Ones. But laying all this out, explaining all the ways in which he didn't deserve to die like a dog in the street, is in itself disgraceful. Arguing whether Brown was a good kid or not is functionally arguing over whether he specifically deserved to die, a way of acknowledging that some black men ought to be executed."

...but also militarization of our police force:

"The worst part of outfitting our police officers as soldiers has been psychological.

Instead of protecting and serving, police are searching and destroying.

"If officers are soldiers, it follows that the neighborhoods they patrol are battlefields. And if they're working battlefields, it follows that the population is the enemy."

Please read and give it some thought. Are you concerned? Do you think it's appropriate that our police force have these types of weapons? Is it overkill or is it necessary?

Damn. A great find by +Carter Gibson. Watch for the spin, folks. We are all dynamic individuals with many sides to us, many stories to tell. We are not so unidimensional. And regardless of whether you dress or speak a certain way, no matter what the story of your life, no innocent person deserves to be murdered by someone designated to serve and protect you.

This blog, following the death of Michael Brown, is fantastic. A blunt acknowledgement that we are all dynamic and complicated, but can be portrayed in any number of paper-thin ways. #IfTheyGunnedMeDown

Of all the pieces I've read, this is one of the most compelling and poignant yet. Beautifully written from the perspective of someone sitting on the same ledge that Robin did; the sad clown tormented by demons, struggling with addiction, people laughing all the way as he inches closer and closer to the edge. Outstanding commentary from a fellow comedian who knows that fight all too well.

(And my hardcore crush on +Russell Brand grows stronger still.)___

What a loss. Thanks for all the laughter and tears, Robin. What sweet, sweet dreams we all hope may come to you.

[Why do we get angry?]

"When somebody provokes your anger, the only reason you get angry is because you’re holding on to how you think something is supposed to be. You’re denying how it is. Then you see it’s the expectations of your own mind that are creating your own hell. When you get frustrated because something isn’t the way you thought it would be, examine the way you thought, not just the thing that frustrates you. You’ll see that a lot of your emotional suffering is created by your models of how you think the universe should be and your inability to allow it to be as it is."

- Ram Dass

[What happens when you introduce the internet to a remote Peruvian village for the first time?]

Last week I had the privilege of attending a scholarship fundraiser for CI Code School, which teaches underserved, inner-city kids how to code. Aside from us spending time hamming it up for the photographer (ahem Jocelyn, you instigator, you), we were also treated to an advanced screening of Web, a documentary following the introduction of the One Laptop Per Child program into remote villages in Peru.

Beyond just touching and humorous, this award-winning film poses some incredibly important questions that all of us, particularly those of us in tech, should be asking ourselves.

What responsibility do we have to the communities in which we are introducing this technology?

It left my mind buzzing and my heart in a swirl of conflicted emotions. Highly recommend seeing it if you can. You can watch the trailer here: http://bit.ly/XqVpKe

It absolutely blows my mind that changing a flight to a different day or even just a different time often costs as much, if not more, than just booking a new ticket all together.

Someone needs to disrupt the fuck out of that model. Come on, Silicon Valley. Give us something useful!

All right. We've seen a lot of these, I know. And somehow they're all still fairly funny, although I think we're all in agreement that the format is getting a bit redundant, not to mention their veracity questionable. 

But this one...this is something truly spectacular, not to mention sweet as pie. "Do we call each other baby...?" The unintentional comedic timing is perfect. :D

Other than David After Dentist, this has to be one of my favorite post-surgery videos yet! Which are your favs?
