Markos Giannopoulos13,655Engagers VI: Christmas edition // It's a festive season so my monthly "round-up & thank you" circle is on the right mood!First some stats on people who engaged me (gathered via +Circloscope) and on my posts (tracked by +CircleCount):September: 620 plussers, 93 commentators and 86 sharers on 32 posts for a total of 745 +1s, 74 re-shares and 117 comments October: 395 plussers, 33 commentators and 39 sharers on 43 posts for a total of 1057 +1s, 80 re-shares and 165 comments November: 616 plussers, 114 commentators and 176 sharers on 32 posts for a total of 1109 +1s, 234 re-shares and 227 commentsA great month fuelled by two posts: 6+1 WordPress initial-setup plugins  (http://bit.ly/1bKXVgX 359 +1s, 59 comments, 183 re-shares) and Ode à Eiffel (http://bit.ly/1heptNZ 46 +1s, 4 comments, 5 re-shares). If I wanted to get "analytical" about it, it was two posts with some decent value (helpful list of plugins in one case on a every-day issue for a WordPress developer and an album of 18 original photos of night Paris on the other) :) So on to the circle: the formula for this month is - Plussers who are on over 3 engagers circles (so basically who have engaged with me in previous months as well this one)  - Sharers and commentators - A few kind highly-engaging people who have shared original circles including me. - People with over 300 in G+'s "relevance score" (as reported by +Circloscope), e.g. the people Google considers that I interact more and post similar content to mine (or of my interest)All in all, this came to a healthy group of 340 content creators and real engagers interested in technology and photography. Feel free to add them! As usual, stats and circle creation for this post were only made possible thanks to +CircleCount and +Circloscope. #engagers   #circleshare #circlesharing   #circleversary #milestone #googleplus #circleoftheday #circleplus #public #publiccircles 2013-12-16 17:49:57340441177CC G+

Markos Giannopoulos3,766197 interesting People // If you're into technology, the Web, photography and science, here's a circle to consider. Methodology: out of 3200 people that I follow, using +Circloscope I ordered them according to relevance score (calculated by Google depending on whose posts I engage the most) and filtered for a value over 30, then filtered for whether they are active (when was their last post) and finally filtered by whether they were in my "must read" circles. Voila! I hope you find it interesting :) #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  #circlesharing  2013-05-26 09:51:2119713412CC G+

Peter Vogel24,368ICT / Ed Tech CircleIt's a long weekend here in Canada (we celebrate Thanksgiving well ahead of our neighbours to the south). Here is a circle of people with a passion for technology in education and who have shared that enthusiasm here on Google+. And that makes for an ideal group to share their energy with others perhaps just starting to explore the rich environment of G+.

Chad Haney7,185Relevance on G+, Two Birds, One PostOK so here's my #AZlist or #AZfaves thingy. I decided not to annoy people with the notifications. They are probably in the shared circle below anyway. In case you don't know, the list is from typing + and a letter. You are supposed to select the first name that Google suggests. I didn't allow duplicates so in some cases, it wasn't the first person Google suggested "by relevance to me".A: Kawthar AL ABDALLA B: Buddhini Samarasinghe C: Kimberly Chapman D: Deeksha Tare E: Mike Elgan F: Feisal Kamil G: Gnotic Pasta H: Aida Hazlan I: irish d J: Jonathan Langdale K: Guy Kawasaki L: Lindsay Leonidas M: Mahesh Sreekandath N: Jerry Nguyen O: Mary Owens P: Peter LindelaufQ: Liz Quilty R: Rajini Rao S: Allison Sekuler T: Tom Lee U: Frances Uku V: Branimir Vasilic W: Christian WietholtX: Xavier Brinon Y: Annie Yim Z: mary ZemanThe shared circle is another test of relevancy. You also have probably seen these going around. You sort your circles by "Relevance" and make a circle out of the top 99. Again, I did a little filtering. I removed people that are hardly on G+ but are in my email contacts. There were a couple of bizarre ones near the bottom that also got the ax, sorry. If you aren't in here, don't feel bad. Blame Google. #circleshare   #sharedcircles2012-10-06 04:41:0110025017CC G+

Peter Vogel17,847Tech Ed CircleI am sharing the circle below for those who are looking for educators and those who actively write about education with an emphasis on information and communications technologies (let's call it tech ed for short). Just prior to posting this I used the Uncircle+ Chrome extension to comb the circle for inactive G+ accounts, resulting in the removal of around 60 from an initial set of 470. However, it appears that Uncircle+ is not completely reliable. At least one account remains that is apparently non-existent and a few accounts remain that were inactive during the period I specified. I wanted Uncircle+ to identify accounts with no activity since January 1.2012-04-09 01:23:424056313CC G+

Mitchel Rodwell0+Duncan Hayes , +Hanii Leigh this is my biggest circle, #Intellectual. I'd advise you follow either this or #Political, depending on which appeals to you more. As you can see, I follow a lot of very serious people, which is the sort of stuff I post as well. There's way more than what I've shared with you on +Google+ . There's +Handmade , there's +Android , there's +Funny Pictures & Videos . It's not just about serious stuff, even though that's what I mostly use it for.Anyway, happy G+ing! Make circles, post things, fill out your profiles, and if you see something really cool, share it! I don't have a good #Music circle, or a good #Photography circle, so one day you guys might share circles with me that I'd like :)P.s. Some useful tips. Google+ has #hashtag support, so when you put a "#" before a term it makes it a clickable link to see other times someone's mentioned that hashtag. So clicking #Intellectual up there would take you to a bunch of intellectual posts. And you tag people or pages with a "+" before their name.2012-01-23 13:52:20463500CC G+

Some interesting things were said about the Right's social network's central hub organization and the lack of one on the Left. But.

Here is evidence the social network lags in a way that makes the central control mechanism look farcical.

A couple of weeks ago a course correction was issued by Singer wherein he opined that although warming was happening, it was not likely worth worrying about. As with all course corrections, it only happened in the minds of his detractors who aren't really as smart as he is. He has always held this "scientific opinion".

Except for one tiny thing. The Republican candidate pool that thinks it's still in 2006 when climate change wasn't happening. They are evidently not big of updating the playbook from election to election.
Snort, giggle.

"What we've shown is that in 3-year-old children, words activate memories that then rapidly deploy attention and lead children to find the relevant object in a cluttered array," said Smith, Chancellor's Professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. "Words call up an idea that is more robust than an image and to which we more rapidly respond. Words have a way of calling up what you know that filters the environment for you."

Robot World Domination, srsly this time.

"In this paper, we argue that military and economic pressures are driving the rapid development of autonomous systems. We show why designers will design these systems to approximate rational economic agents. We then show that rational systems exhibit universal ‘drives’ towards self-preservation, replication, resource acquisition and efficiency and that those drives will lead to anti-social and dangerous behaviour if not explicitly countered. We argue that the current computing environment would be very vulnerable to this kind of system. We describe how to build safe systems using the power of mathematical proof. We describe a variety of harmful systems and techniques for restraining them."
Don't worry, the link works.

Yes. Steve Green has Christian curriculum design too.


Green apparently helped Baylor out with funding a collection and supporting research activities. But is Green more of a Biblical Archaeology guy?

It doesn't say anything here about designing a high school curriculum.
Looks like +Jerry Pattengale is the director at Baylor. 
I wonder why Baylor doesn't mention it or are high school students the undergraduate scholars they refer to?

Rule by meme
Florida nearly allowed non-citizen taxpayers to get value out of their state and local taxes. Nearly. But the innumerate saved the world. Thank you Jesus. /s

The party's PR operative on site, Rick Wilson, only had to recast the argument to say "Look at how they are stealing your children's opportunities!"

A simple injection of a new meme and the master of semantic misdirection can divert the stampeding herd from one fear to the next. <-- a state of near constant fear in the crowd is what makes this possible on the right. The nutbag left is afraid of things like bananas and corn, thus politically ineffective.

Talking about sharing #opensource  lessons... we did a fun thing on the Heartbleed bug in class.
After I looked at the various magazines' lists of vulnerable sites, I decided it was all just too silly. So I had all the kids use one of the online scanners to hit their favorite sites that used ssl, print the results, and tape them up in the hall with the cartoon as an explanation.
The kids enjoyed it, nobody understood it except them, so it added cool.

The New Age Bullshi Generator

"We exist as bio-feedback. The future will be a mystical evolving of intuition. The fusion of ecstasy is now happening worldwide. We are being called to explore the infinite itself as an interface between energy and potential. Only a lifeform of the quantum soup may inspire this evolution of sharing. Turbulence is born in the gap where nature has been excluded."

Rebuilding trust:
A sociological view of economic evolution.
I was just reading +Russell Davison's post of this article on changes in the job market. It follows the normal narrative of technology fueling change.

I would like to point to why I think describing employees as  "unneeded" may be missing a dimension.

When a new technological solution replaces an old system, it replaces a lot more than people standing in a line, putting widgets in boxes. Supply chains and the people who support them may change as well. Chains of documentation are inevitably remodeled.

It is this part that interests me because a chain of documents includes a chain of trust. Thus trusted relationships are inevitably broken and remade.

The article uses journalism as an example "Corporations Don't Like You". But fails to note that the verye... more »

+Allen Downey 
Could the finding that religiosity dropped with the rise in Internet use be an inverse correlation too?
Consider the emergence of the "Evangelical Underbelly".

While it was "nice" to be a Christian who felt that increased adherence to the principles of Jesus might be a good thing in the 70s and into the 80s, adhering to the Old Testament legal system and belief in literal demons came as a surprise to some middle-of-the-road Christians. Televangelists grew older and their excesses were revealed as well. David Kennedy's Coral Ridge Presbyterian church lost way over half its congregation when he started ranting about communists from the pulpit, but that was recent and was probably dementia.

One way to check this would be to poll non-religious Jews about their Internet use. If Internet use somehow produced less intense feelings about God,... more »

Hello Casters! We've got some fresh news on the OpenCTD. This Thursday +Russell Neches and I spent the day hacking probes and working on circuits. Below are the three probes we're working on. 

On the left is the three-ganged temperature probe. Rather than relying on a single thermistor to get measure temperature, we're going to pair three together and get the average. One advantage of the dallas thermistor is that you can run as many probes as you want through a single data port. We did some speed tests on these little thermistors, and though they're officially rated to 30 second, I've found that, in water they reach equilibrium in less than 5 seconds, and are even faster for small differences. In a head to head with a commercial Hanna Instruments temperature probe, the thermistors were about twice as fast at reach equilibrium. We can expect about 0.1C accuracy from this setu... more »

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory in collaboration with researchers from Arizona State University have found a way to imitate Photosystem II, the first protein complex in the long chain of reactions that use energy from the sun to create usable fuel. The result was reported in the journal Nature Chemistry (see link below).

Photosystem II (or water-plastoquinone oxidoreductase) uses energized electrons to split water into oxygen, protons and the electrons that are necessary to complete the photosynthetic process. It is located in the thylakoid membrane of plants, algae, and cyanobacteria.
