Ole Olson20,256Top Circlers on the GooglesphereI've been sharing one and only one circle per day lately, picking the most interesting ones I've found. My goal is to share a diverse selection of circles, some based on topics like the environment, or interests like scifi, or well designed share circles. Probably about time I share one of my OWN circles for a change!Below is my recently updated Top Circles circle. These folks have a good track record of forging excellent share circles. Add them immediately.  #HashtagZoo  (concept courtesy of +Peter Edenist) #Circles   #Sharedcircles   #PublicCircles   #topcircles   #circlequeen   #circlemaster   #SharingIsCaring  2013-08-15 08:12:489516923CC G+
Ole Olson14,742Leaders of Google+ in #progressive   #politics  Add this circle for a well vetted collection of thought leaders that post a high degree of quality political content. The focalizers here are also excellent engagers. I have been sculpting this circle since G+ began. Other public circles I've shared that you might like:The Top 50 Progressives Circle on G+https://plus.google.com/111051039748078110427/posts/PETHgTMqpcDVisual and/or Fun content https://plus.google.com/u/0/111051039748078110427/posts/DbBUtg3f8q8Top Science Circle https://plus.google.com/u/0/111051039748078110427/posts/WYqn7FXjsAmProgressive Media on G+ https://plus.google.com/u/0/111051039748078110427/posts/1t3HVRfNhuCForward Thinking Journalists on Google+ https://plus.google.com/u/0/111051039748078110427/posts/4h7jniYWcxaMy Top Circler Circle https://plus.google.com/111051039748078110427/posts/cjSWip8ayqH #Liberal   #Green   #SharedPublicCircles   #Occupy   #CircleOfTheDay   #Environment   #PublicCircle   #activism   #CircleSharing   #Unions   #Feminism   #HumanRights   #LGBT   #secular   #science  2013-05-21 17:23:0549516413CC G+
Ole Olson13,134My Top Circler CircleSpecial thanks to these people on G+ who have shared me in one of their circles. I don't say it very often, but I really do appreciate it.  As I went over the list on +CircleCount last night, I realized some of these folks had vanished from my own circles, which happens on G+ occasionally, but that has been rectified. These are all fine folks with an eclectic mix of quality posts. Add this circle for some outstanding engagers.   And for others, sculpting quality circles and SHARING them is a very important part to G+. Don't share a circle every day, but do it once in a while to help others find who is important to you on here. Dirk TalamascaAndrey MashnichJack C CrawfordCircleCountEuro MaestroSusanne RamharterMark SDaniel HarringtonPaul MeulmanRandy HilarskiJUSTIN MATTHEW (shouting!)Gideon RosenblattTrever McGheeArmando LiossMike ClancyJohn HardyRob SalzmanJason Hurtado DanielsAlister MacintyreTina ValeJohn KelldenBob MulhollandDaniel SandsteinJari HuomoGabriel FitzpatrickGiovanni TotaroRae OuztsDaniele VegaMelissa WalkerKimberly CrawleyShaun WheldenRichard Greenjohn sawyerWes ForsterMarko Shiva PavlovicWataru TengaDavid BeeAtheismJohn DoeMelisa BeliwiczErik BarrettAmy McLeodAaron StanleyJeffrey HarringtonJason MDaniel VoisinBill SewardAndrew HartwellJoys Maclaurinmatt vovakiss #CircleShare   #SharedCircles   #SharedPublicCircles   #CircleOfTheDay   #Engagers  2013-04-23 13:27:015013615CC G+
Ole Olson12,447This is my main political circle. It contains people that post a high ratio of left leaning political content.

Ole Olson11,096The Top 50 Progressives Circle on G+  This is the best of the best forward thinkers that I've found here on Google+. To be in this very small circle, I've set a few basic guidelines:1. High quality and volume of progressively oriented political posts from a variety of sources and topics2. Long history of activism on G+ and steady activity3. Strong Engagment (+1's, shares, comments) on other people's posts  I'm pretty sure I've missed out on a lot of folks that should be in this circle, but this is the best I can do for the time being, so don't feel slighted if you're not in there. This is a work in progress, but I can guarantee that you will enjoy adding this circle.  #Gplus   #Politics   #progressive   #liberal   #activism   #SharedCircles  2013-03-18 17:30:17589312CC G+
Alister Macintyre9,520Here is my circle of people who like to (and have demonstrated capability of) having a civilized conversation about Current Events from a Progressive point of view.2012-09-11 06:05:57252533CC G+
Hek Waves775In August, it was about one year I started my „Hek Waves“ stream on G+. In the meantime, I had the opportunity to “circle up” with a considerable group of people sharing interesting, amazing, sometimes critical and – if it’s needed – also a bit odd and jolting content. But – and that’s the point – it has always been a valuable, friendly, enlightening and engaging contribution to my personal G+ stream. Therefore, I think, that the first G+ anniversary is a good opportunity to say thanks to some of the top influencers of my stream and the best way to say Thank You on G+ is sharing carefully selected circles to the public. So, let me start with a first ”Thank You Circle”:This circle contains a first selection of people sharing social, political or environmental content on G+. It’s a pretty colorfull circle, so it doen’t address a single social direction or opinion. But it always contains people with a valuable point of view. And that’s, what makes G+ so unique. #ThankYouCircle   #reshare   #sharingiscaring   +Shared Circles on G+ BTW: Special thanks to +Susanne Ramharter  and +Andrew Hartwell  for the foundations to this circle.2012-09-02 12:33:1513724521CC G+

Amy McLeod1,986Ok, I have recently expanded my articulate and engaged circle with circles other people have given out of people that are interested in or actively participating in the Occupy movement. I'm not guaranteeing everyone I'm sharing here, as 900 odd people is a bit much to go through. These are people who would normaly be all over the political spectrum, but all interested in the the problems with out of control finance and it's corruption of goverment, they will certainly hold many views totally contrary to yours on many issues, but on this issue they are the 99%. I can't even guarantee that everyone in this circle is what I've stated above, I just took on trust the circles that have been shared to me and added them to people I had circled as articulate and engaged before Occupy took off, some of them may even be incomprehensible and disinterested, feel free to sort through them yourself if you have time, but I'd urge you not to exclude anyone just because their views are the polar opposite of yours on other issues. 99% is more important than any other divide and on this one thing both left and right should be united.First 500 are here.Amy McLeod shared a circle with you.2011-10-19 15:12:51500301CC G+

There is no such thing as ‘technology.’ Rather there are specific technologies, produced by specific economic and political actors, and deployed in specific economic and social contexts."

This happened most recently in Palo Alto, in California's Silicon Valley, where new billionaires are seemingly minted every month – and where 92% of homeless people lack shelter of any kind. Dozens of cities have passed similar anti-homeless laws. The largest of them is Los Angeles, the longtime unofficial "homeless capital of America", where lawyers are currently defending a similar vehicle-sleeping law before a skeptical federal appellate court. Laws against sleeping on sidewalks or in cars are called "quality of life" laws. But they certainly don't protect the quality of life of the poor.

Idiot calls Colbert "political blackface."  What this troll fails to realize is that making fun of the oppressed for the amusement of the powerful is an oppressive act, while making fun of the powerful to amuse the oppressed is subversive.  Same reason why The Great Dictator is funny, but holocaust jokes are in poor taste.

#music Really excellent BBC doc on the development of synthpop in the UK. Starts with the post-punk weirdos in the late 70s who were into Clockwork Orange and Kraftwerk, who tried to create soundtracks for the dystopian future; ends with synthpop getting co-opted into the yuppie mainstream in the 80s. Lots of classic footage and interviews with folks like Gary Numan, OMD, Depeche Mode, New Order, John Foxx, Cabaret Voltaire, the Pet Shop Boys, etc.

“Should gainfully employed adults whose job is to listen to music thoughtfully really agree so regularly with the taste of 13-year-olds?” - The New York Times in 2014, criticizing the taste of 13-year-olds.

“The cyclical turnover in teen-age trauma received recognition last night in the businesslike appearance of the Beatles on the ‘Ed Sullivan Show’ over the Columbia Broadcasting System… The Liverpool quartet, borrowing the square hairdo used every morning on television by Captain Kangaroo, was composed of conservative conformists.” - The New York Times in 1964, criticizing the taste of 13-year-olds.  

Maybe the kids are, to quote another “rockist” band, alright?

Saul Austerlitz, in the recent New York Times article quoted, complains about so-called “poptimist” music critics pushing their pro-pop agenda at the expense of their readers.  You shouldreally go read it, as i... more »

13 people died because GM refused to switch out a faulty ignition switch on the Chevy Cobalt and other models, despite being aware of the problem. The change would have cost GM 90 cents per car. http://rall.com/comic/premium-ignition-option

Ok, so trying to live a more unplugged, analog life for your kids is cool and all, but do you really have to grow mullets and have the whole family wear ugly sweaters?

"But despite late night’s march toward irrelevance, Letterman’s retirement is still upsetting because he’s the last line of defense against Jimmy Fallon. If all social media clickbait rose up out of the muck and took form in the dark, it would look like Jimmy Fallon. He is Buzzfeed made flesh and given sickening consciousness. His desperation for approval and social media legitimacy is suffocating. He’s the archetypical guy at a party who comes up to you and says 'hey, why aren’t you having fun?' and you can’t just tell him he’s trying too hard because he’s turning the corner toward being incoherently drunk. Then he comes back later and asks if you know where to get coke around here."

"...the most significant impact [of 3D printing], he said, is the democratization of manufacturing, which he believes marks the return of production and making power to local experts — to the craftsmen with the creative power to change the world"

"Democracy, as a modern ideology, arose in societies already ruled by coercive states enforcing the interests of a ruling class... Real democracy existed long before states ever arose, since human beings first existed in communities."

In a shocking twist, according to the rules written by anti-democratic rich people 200 years ago, having rich people exercise undemocratic levels of influence in the government is totally cool!  Who could have guessed?

#music  John Carpenters' Escape From New York soundtrack is a classic.  Tons of 80s sci-fi and action movies tried to emulate this stuff. #riyl  dark minimalistic synth pop, Wendy Carlos' Shining and Tron soundtracks, or dystopian futures.

"Russia has already seen approximately $65 billion leave the country in the first quarter – higher than the $63 billion in capital flight for all of 2013 -- and may post a net capital outflow of $100 billion in 2014, Deputy Economic Development Minister Andrei Klepach said earlier this week."

"Some people wonder why it was necessary to evoke such an ugly and hurtful stereotype in order to make an anti-racist point. Here’s why: There are defenders of the 'Redskins' name who had their consciences pricked by Colbert's routine who couldn't have been reached by earnest anti-racist entreaties. These folks have convinced themselves that the team name is a non-issue and no amount of rational argument is going to make them realize what's wrong with it. Sometimes, you can change someone’s mind by making them feel something, even when rational argument fails. One of the functions of social satire is to engineer those kinds of epiphanies....

The comparison between the Redskins mascot and Ching Chong Ding Dong is supposed to make Redskins defenders feel ashamed of themselves. Colbert is trying to make them realize at a gut level that their beloved mascot is redface toChi... more »

Looks like Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine is in action once again.  The forces of neoliberalism, never ones to let a good crisis go to waste, descend on Ukraine:

"The International Monetary Fund on Thursday offered Ukraine a bailout of up to $18bn (£10.9bn) over two years, in return for harsh economic reforms that may well worsen living standards for the already impoverished population. Further IMF aid will be unlocked if austerity measures are passed, including a sharp rise in the cost of energy. In a first vote on Thursday night, parliament approved a law required for the IMF bailout."

Guess who said: "But even in Iraq, America sought to work within the international system. We did not claim or annex Iraq’s territory. We did not grab its resources for our own gain. Instead, we ended our war and left Iraq to its people in a fully sovereign Iraqi state that can make decisions about its own future."

Rumsfeld?  Cheney?  McCain?  Nope, guess again....

LOL.  Yeah, cancel Colbert for using other racist terms to point out how racist the Washington Redskins are.  I guess we should ban Swift for endorsing the eating of Irish babies?
