Gregg Lantz2,962Tomorrow is a taxing day here in the United States. You get to decide if you want to buy Glass (sorry IRS). If you're not sure and would like to know what others are saying, add this circle.  You'll be able to look at public posts from people that use Glass and people that purchased Glass and put it on the shelf while software was being developed. You'll get both sides of the story. Hopefully this circle will help make the decision process a little easier. Don't forget to post your questions with #askanexplorer  so  people can chime in and help answer your questions. #glassexplorers   #throughglass   #sharedcircles   #circleshare   #wearables   #wearabletech   #glasswaiters  2014-04-14 21:08:59425004CC G+

Gustavo Franco1,547I've started an experiment with my Google+ account disabling this circle (Googlers and Xooglers) from showing up on my home stream. I'll see how it will look like without my coworkers and former coworkers.In case you are wondering how to adjust and even disable the posts from a circle showing up in your home stream, read:https://support.google.com/plus/answer/1269165?hl=enI've moved the circle to be the 1st on my bar though so I still can easily peak at what folks are saying.  In case you are wondering how to do that, read:https://plus.google.com/113895942978964425455/posts/igWgAhX22qM2014-02-15 23:38:47324301CC G+

Hung cuavan607Get in More CirclesWhen You reshare with a circle, you should also explain the benefits of participating in shared circles. Explain the BenefitsExplain that when they add the circle many people in the circle will add them back. Also,Explain that if they re-share your post that the circle creator may add them to their future shared circles. If you do these two simple things you will increase your re-share rate. You’ll get in more circles and you’ll improve your own statistics.2014-01-15 09:38:5450020833CC G+

Susanne Ramharter3,133Fridays are for sharing circlesto the new people who have put me in their circles: many thanks! Some of you I have already had contact with, to the rest, I would like to reciprocate with this circle. It is hand-picked, and contains people who are funny, intelligent, knowledgeable, and engaged.You will find information about social media, google+, as well as cognitive science, books, travel and art, some agitation against encroaching on civil liberties (SOPA, ACTA, censorship - mostly from me ;-) inspirational as well as snarky things, and yes, the occasional cat. But everyone here is friendly and has great things to contribute, so feel free to share the circle if you like.Have fun!2012-03-09 15:46:5631329919CC G+

Lambert Schlumpf874Circle Shareee!The Interactive CircleI modified a bit the circle shared by +Max Huijgen yesterday afternoon (GMT): few people have been removed because their posts attract thousands of comments and you wouldn't get replies anyway. Plus, I am sure you have already in your circles people like +Trey Ratcliff, +Tom Anderson or +Mike Elgan.I added instead few others who I reckon are more interactive, In the meaning that if you post a direct comment to the author you are very likely going to receive a reply, which is always nice: They are people like +Christy Ramsey, +Paul van de Loo, +Clare Cosgrove, +Yvan Da Silva and others. Some of them are not very famous, but oh, well... they interact! Here the original post, via +Max Huijgen Out of the box into a circle: change your G+ world!http://j.mp/z4s0ZH2012-02-26 09:21:182021708CC G+
Max Huijgen13,212Out of the box into a circle: change your G+ world!The pegs and the holes, the ones who think different, the people who will change your G+ worldA careful selection on relevance, great posts, contributions to debate, original thought and stunning images. If you follow this circle of 200, G+ will never be boring and you are in for a stream of thoughts and beauty.The familiar faces show up, but it contains a large number of hidden gems if you dig deeper.As a circle needs a name: "Think different: the interaction circle" will do very well.Update: The most interesting part is that the circle is part of some experiments: one of them is the daily update. A way to ´subscribe´ to a circle by reading all the post at your leisure. Every day you will see the complete collection on this url:http://publiccircles.appspot.com/dailyplus/z12luh3hjsngtd04y04cetehsvf0x3nbtmc0kOn a dull Saturday this circle managed to create 780 posts and generate 7093 comments, 4842 reshares and 16074 +1's. Check it on a week day and that page will be living proof that G+ is not dead at all. This circle alone generates more posts and comments than you can possibly read on a day. Oh yes, that´s why it´s called the interaction circle ;)2012-02-24 22:38:5920015310285CC G+

Chris Hoyt1,112Circle Back to GoogleLooking for people who work at Google? Here's a great circle that's a strong addition to any search you've already performed on Google Plus and that I'd include with any other search for Googlers that you've already conducted.What's interesting to me (and that I'm getting around to pointing out) is that whether you're just looking to expand your network as a member of Google+ or actively #recruiting and #sourcing online, I believe that you'll find infinite value from the proper care and feeding of Google Plus circles. In fact, if done correctly (and maintained) it's a fantastic way to filter your Google Plus stream and check the pulse of any company, organization or interest group.In the event you missed it, I did an article back in August that mentioned my interest in Circles and how I'd be exploring the management of them. (http://www.recruiterguy.net/recruiting-management-circles) So far, I've not been disappointed in the ability to really hone in on an area of interest by filtering my streams based on these circles and simply watching the conversation flow. Of course, being able to quickly see all of the updates from a particular company or interest group is just the start. The more proficient we get with our filtering, the easier it is to get the latest from fun entrepreneurs, CEO's, diversity interest groups, active and passive jobseekers and more - these are just a few of my own circles, mind you. You have the ability to filter by profession, seniority, geography, language, etc.The possibilities are endless!I'd love to hear how you, or others, are using circles to manage the information stream you've found in G+ so far.2012-01-04 20:07:36348211CC G+

Cleaning up some old things, I came across a bunch of cassette tapes.
These two tapes stood out.

In high school, or maybe junior high, +Bjorn Behrendt passed around a copy of a George Carlin comedy album. Hilarious. Seriously funny. I must have listened to that tape 1000 times.  Baseball vs. football – Baseball vs Football – one of the jokes on that tape that jumps in my mind every time I watch either of those sports.

The other tape I recorded off the radio when they broadcast an R.E.M. show live one night.  The live performance of Country Feedback, Michael Stipe's favorite R.E.M. song, blew my mind. I couldn't listen to it enough. REM - Country Feedback - best live version

But with no tape player in my house, I've decided it's finally time to get rid of these old tapes. But it's fun seeing them, and bringingback all ... more »

How to escape from NBC's Olympics jail.

NBC has made itself a global laughingstock for its censored, time-delayed and broadly lame coverage, as well as its clueless live streams online.

But you don't have to be a victim. Lifehacker has a really nice guide for streaming great Olympics coverage from the BBC, as well as other sources.

Comcast customer surprised to learn new router is also public hotspot

Routers broadcast public Wi-Fi signals, unless you ask Comcast to turn it off.

This is actually awesome of Comcast and I wish all ISPs would do it and share access to each other's customers.

Yesterday in Washington, D.C., Google Translate's director of engineering, Macduff Hughes, spoke at Data Innovation Day, an event to discuss how data can be harnessed to improve industries as differed as health care, transportation, energy and manufacturing. With more than a billion translations daily across 80 languages, Google Translate's goal is to enable people to communicate better no matter where they are or what language they speak. But though we've made a lot of progress, the quality of these translations still varies—and it turns out that the single largest factor that determines translation quality is the amount of data available.

What's behind the California Drought?

Check out the tiny blue line in the graphs below. That's our rain so far in this, the wet reasons. Yikes.

It's unclear why Governor Jerry Brown hasn't declared it officially, but the experts already have. California is in the middle of what might turn out to be the worst drought in its history. Check out this awesome blog post describing this terrifying weather pattern:

Secret Google Glass Case

While I prefer to keep Glass on my head – once and a while you've got to put it away in a bag or something.

For those times, I made myself this handy secret book case :)

old book
x-acto knife
a bit of fabric
and a hot glue gun

Result came out pretty good.

If you're going to make your own, tips:
- take your time cutting through the layers of pages.  It takes a while.
- cut the hole plenty big enough ... mine ended up tight after I glued in the fabric
- hot glue dries fast, make sure you press the fabric down on it quick, otherwise it can get lumpy

Enjoy!  Let me know if you try making your own, or make a book case like this for something else.

Whether you're trekking to a new place or simply trying to communicate with someone who doesn't share a language with you, Google Translate can help you connect to new information and people. Today, we're launching nine new languages: Hausa, Igbo, Yoruba, Somali, Zulu, Mongolian, Nepali, Punjabi and Maori, which span across parts of Africa, Asia and South Asia and collectively have more than 200 million speakers.

Making demo videos of Android apps
Android screenrecord and more

I just posted here: http://goo.gl/5LIcVf
about one of my favorite new features in Google Translate, shortcut widgets that jump you directly into the app, say for speech translation English to Chinese.

For that post I created a demo video, showing how to setup the widget and using it.

What was totally awesome, was that I could use screenrecord, a new feature of Android in KitKat, to easily record a video of my screen as I performed the demo.

It was very easy to do.  First, I turned on "Show touches" in the developer menu, to make it more obvious where I touched on the screen.  Then connected my phone to my laptop, and typed:

adb shell screenrecord /sdcard/demo.mp4

Ctrl-C when I'm done. And...

adb pull /sdcard/demo.mp4more »

Google Translate for Android
Quick shortcut widgets to speech, camera, and more

New widgets give you one-tap shortcuts directly into speech, camera, or handwriting translation.

Last week we launched a big update to Google Translate for Android.

It includes a much improved speech translation experience, helping you have conversations with people you might otherwise struggle to understand.

This release also included new widgets that give you a quick shortcut directly into Translate using a particular input method (speech, camera, handwriting, or keyboard) and pre-selecting a specific pair of languages.

What I love about this is how fast I can open my phone, and jump into a English-Chinese translated conversation.

Try it out and let us know what you think!

We just updated our Transparency Report, showing how many requests Google gets for information about its users. But we're not allowed to give the full story because the U.S. government says that requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) must be kept secret. We can tell you this: Requests have more than doubled around the world since 2009, and more than tripled in the U.S.: http://g.co/u5sp

Share this if you believe you have a right to know what our governments are up to.

Google Translate in your +YouTube comments

Many of you likely heard about the change to how +YouTube comments work:

I think it's a great change for a lot of reasons, but my favorite reason is it brings the Google Translate support we have here in +Google+, to +YouTube 

Here's a comment I ran across on a +Lady Gaga video:

Google Translate: Simpler Language Selectors

Recently we launched a minor update to how you select your languages for translate on Google Translate

Before this change, there were multiple places you could select your language.  We've simplified that down to one place.

You'll see your recently used languages available to you with one click.

If you don't see the language you need, you can click the down arrow ▼ to see our full list of 71 supported languages.

Once you select on, it will show up in these quick access selectors.

Let us know what you think!

Interesting article in +The Atlantic about artificial intelligence – or maybe more generally, thinking machines.

I'm quoted in the piece talking about Google Translate.

Hofstadter, and this piece, tends to think about and talk about artificial intelligence in a different way than most, and it's worth thinking about the difference.
