SciFi Author: Lacerant Plainer3,752Its been some time since I shared from this account.These are my top friends... why share? Because if you want to meet awesome people they are in this circle!Some of the people I have met by serendipity, and a lot thanks to +Ted Ewen, +Mz Maau, +Jamez Frondeskias and people I circled randomly. But the experience has been wonderful.You will noticed a marked tilt towards Science Fiction, Geekery and Randomness, but there are some people who take awesome Pictures like +Charles Strebor and +Jacob Dix. Others who have a unique take on things like +Jack Stanley and +Yoon-Mi Kim.When making circles, my endeavor has been to have the best quality people here who share and engage. So if you're new here, add these people. If you have been some time in G+, you know what I'm talking about. This is my way of hat tipping to the wonderful people here - Thank you for being a wonderful friend and supporter!! #topcircles    #lacerantplainer  +Lacerant Plainer 2012-07-17 12:29:2018327218CC G+
Craig Froehle4,629467 Plussers Well Worth FollowingSome curated recommendations to make your Tuesday a bit more interesting. I kept this circle largely free of celebrities, pages, and organizations, so these should (nearly) all be actual people. Enjoy!By the way, topic-wise, it's a bit of a potpourri, but with emphasis on technology, science, progressive politics, skepticism, and other fascinating things.Note that I don't always agree with everyone in this circle, so don't take this as an endorsement of their ideas...merely that they tend to be thoughtful when presenting them.2012-07-03 14:29:094671718CC G+

Rob Gordon25,215Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed, & Small Business Owners.  As promised, here is my "supplemental" circle of entrepreneurs here on Google+. This is an addition to the original set of circles with the same name that I published in mid-May that you can find at this link: http://goo.gl/P0Irg.These circles include the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, startup company founders and people here who seem to have an entrepreneurial mindset. This smaller circle will be put as a link on that post so that anyone who wants to "entrepreneuralize" their stream will have a quick way to do that. This circle is a mixed bag of all sorts of different kinds of entrepreneurs - some well established, some just getting going. If I missed you this time, please let me know. I republish this periodically.  Please consider adding this to your circle of entrepreneurs. I also want to take this as an opportunity to plug the Startup Chautauqua event we are planning for this Saturday, June 30th at 9AM PDT, 12PM EDT, 4:00PM GMT. This will be a "multi-hangout" event where we will have one public meeting, and then people can visit hangouts hosted by other entrepreneurs and small business owners. It should be fun and will give us all a chance to get to know each other better.  Read more about it here: http://goo.gl/mCPFT.   Please let us know if you would like to join us - either as one of the hangout hosts or as a participant. All are welcome to attend and we hope you will be able to make it.2012-06-26 17:20:5110034717CC G+

Armando Lioss9,721“Active Engagers Shared Circle” 2.1In this shared circle you will find some interesting people to add to your circles, all of these GPlussers currently are actively engaging with my posts as well as with other GPlussers’ posts, so you can be sure they are getting involved in the G+ community.The main purpose of this series of Shared Circles is to expose new GPlussers, but you may find even first generation ones in them, in order to give everybody an opportunity this version include only GPlussers that have not been included in my “Active Engagers Shared Circle” 2.0, if you are looking for a more comprehensive list of active engagers you may want to review this list as well: https://plus.google.com/u/0/111635150542674847021/posts/KVJLKb25SatIf you do not wish to be included in my future shared circles, please let me know with a comment to this post. I will remove you from this and any future shared circle I create, but I will keep you in my G+ circles.Furthermore, with each version I try to include new active engagers that are looking to meet other GPlussers to interact with, but I understand the old users may not have as much interest to meet new users and won’t circle them back, so I will prefer including users that really want to interact with new users.For TIPS TO GET PEOPLE TO CIRCLE YOU you may want to check:https://plus.google.com/u/0/111635150542674847021/posts/Q6c3ikBhdT3Thank you for your help making Google Plus adventure and exhilarating one… #SharedCirecles #CircleShare #ActiveUsers #Engagers #Commenters #TopCircles PS: I don’t necessarily share or identify the views of these GPlussers, in fact with some of them we have completely antagonistic points of view and dissimilar interests…2012-04-07 17:11:19500141516CC G+

Armando Lioss7,406How to Get People to Circle YouIf you don’t want to get bored, jump to the tips and skip my blah blah blah…This weekend has being snowing and a bit cold for my taste, so I spent it social networking most of it… I had a chance to chat with a bunch of friends in FB and find out that several of them have tried Google Plus and gave up, because they couldn’t make friends… the word was “it is boring”, “it is dead”, “nobody friends you back for weeks”, “I have sent invitations to 100’s and just a couple friend me back”, …Well, been in FB myself for a while I can understand the culture, but the first thing one needs to be aware of is that this is not FB, here we have circles and we don’t send invitations, we circle the people that we find interesting, the goal is not to have a lot of friends, but to find people with the same interests, those we find amusing, entertaining, we can learn from or connect with. Yes, ideally we want to connect too and that is why it is not that important to have a lot of friends, but get the ones that share our interests so we can interact with them, but not all the people in your circles will circle you back. As you add people to your circle your stream will run faster and you don’t want to flood your stream with posts that you don’t care about, so make sure you circle the right people. The following are some pointers to get people to circle you back, most of it based on my own preferences, what I have learned from others in Google Plus and the errors I have seen chatting with my FB friends.TIPS TO GET PEOPLE TO CIRCLE YOU. First thing, go to your profile and fill out the “About” tab, it is very important that you try to fill this out as much as possible, you may want to avoid personal information like your address and phone number, after all it is the Internet. Every single one of my FB friends that complained about not getting “friends” got this page blank. A lot of people before circling you back will review this page and won’t circle you if it is blank. At least you should fill the Introduction, Bragging rights (something that catch the eye, brag about yourself), and Places lived.Also, it is very important to change the default photo, as beginner I would recommend to put one of your best pictures where the other Google Plus users can see your face, then later change it with your pet picture or whatever you want to have as your avatar. It is very important when you start that people feel like is getting to know you so they can feel confident to circle you back… don’t put that picture your friends shoot last time you fall asleep at that party… leave it for later, when enough people have circled you back..Don’t hide your information, there is nothing wrong with being new to Google Plus and don’t having too many people in your circles or not too many people that circled you back. A lot of people, like me, won’t be really inclined to circle back somebody that hides this information, it could be a troll or a spammer. Besides, looking to the people you have in your circle and who circle you back may help to get somebody to circle you back, it has happened to me when I do not find enough posts from a user that interest me, I check their circle and if I find people that I know as interesting, I assume there is potential for this person to become interesting as well.Before you start adding people to your circle, fill your stream with great stuff. The first think I do when people circle me is to check their streams to find out what they post, if I don’t find enough stuff that interests me, I don’t circle back. Chances are, this will be the only time the people you circle will take a look to your stream, if they don’t circle you back, so don’t miss the chance to introduce yourself with great posts. Most of my FB friends didn’t have anything worth to show or even they had their streams bl2012-03-05 12:32:54391261716CC G+

The Kite patch is a new way to combat mosquitos - and mosquito borne illnesses such as malaria.  It looks like this Indiegogo campaign is for a commercial venture - I'd have been much happier with a non-profit, but they do have giving the patches to families in Uganda as a key component of their crowd-funding pitch.

Here's an awesomely excellent sounding crowdfunding campaign:

Black Girls CODE - Summer of CODE 2013 - The Remix
Help fund the next generation of tech and expose 2,000+ girls to coding during our expanded CODE summer program.

The reasons this is an awesome idea are many. Development studies show that across a whole range of metrics for social wellbeing, the education and uplifting of women is just about the best thing you can do to improve social conditions. Everyone is going on about how important coding skills are, but we know that these skills are not being evenly distributed.  Time and again we are hearing about problems of sexism and racism in the tech industry.  And most generally, every kid should have the opportunity to pursue and learn things that interest them, and we need to do better about making sure all kids in this country have opportunities to learn coding...a... more »

"On the dock Yarrow stood and watched them go, as sailor’s wives and sisters stand on all the shores of all Earthsea watching their men go out on the sea, and they do not wave or call aloud, but stand still in hooded cloak of grey or brown, there on the shore that dwindles smaller and smaller from the boat while the water grows wide between."

App Camp for Girls was launched 3 days ago at the Apple WWDC. It's already raised more than its initial goal, $58,000, but we should fund it to the moon. It's an incredibly worthwhile idea. 

Here's some of their blurb:

"App Camp for Girls wants to address the gender imbalance among software developers by giving girls the chance to learn how to build apps, to be inspired by women instructors, and to get exposure to software development as a career. Our goal is to grow our non-profit organization into a national force, with programs in multiple cities, helping thousands of girls.

We are launching this summer in Portland, Oregon. This summer, we'll be holding two sessions with girls 12-14 so that we can build and refine our curriculum. With experience and an established program, we'll move forward over the coming year with plans to expand the camp for... more »

GTD Best Practices

This is my own collection of best practices that I have developed and adapted from the GTD (Getting Things Done) methodology. For background on GTD, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Getting_Things_Done

The thing I have found most important about using GTD is to be flexible. I have created my own implementation of GTD, and I'm not afraid to bend the rules when necessary. I also try not to get bogged down in process, because GTD should make things easier, not more difficult.

Information Management

I used to carry a pen and paper to all of my meetings. I would take notes, and then file those papers in a folder for the relevant project. But I had a hard time locating those notes months or years later when I needed them. This, and working at Google, taught me that if data is not searchable, it's not very useful.

Interesting if you are into Pinterest, but actually even more interesting for thinking about metrics, data analysis, algorithms for image analysis, etc.

In the wake of PRISM, I can't help thinking about the use of techniques like these on, say, images of demonstrations, strikes, college campuses, etc.

My next (non-fiction) read:

The Spectacle of Disintegration: Situationist Passages out of the Twentieth Century
by McKenzie Wark
Acclaimed author follows the work of the Situationist International after May 1968.
Following his acclaimed history of the Situationist International up until the late sixties, The Beach Beneath the Street, McKenzie Wark returns with a companion volume which puts the late work of the Situationists in a broader and deeper context, charting their contemporary relevance and their deep critique of modernity. Wark builds on their work to map the historical stages of the society of the spectacle, from the diffuse to the integrated to what he calls the disintegrating spectacle. The Spectacle of Disintegration takes the reader through the critique of political aesthetics of former Situationist T.J. Clark, the Fourierist utopia of Raoul Vaneigem, René Vienet’sea... more »

The default title for this thing is a bit of teaser, but the truth is actually pretty grim.  Some kid cuts school and makes a boosting post on Facebook about how he's going to be a famous rapper, but includes a comparison to the Boston bombing. And ends up in jail, without bail, on terrorism charges.  No specific threat, no weapons, no bomb making material. And clearly, really clearly, nothing beyond normal teenage stuff - wanting to be a famous rapper, thinking the government is shit. Even with attempts to cut and paste things together to make him look worse, there still doesn't seem to be ANYTHING there to warrant ANYTHING.  Maybe a detention for cutting school. 20 years in prison, though?

In Wired’s binary California Ideology, it’s either ‘bad regulation’ or no regulation at all. The article contains gems like: “Profit is a much more powerful driver for quality than regulatory compliance.” Contrast this with the extraordinarily good work of Shareable magazine, in trying to make municipal regulations sharing-friendly and even sharing-constructive.

Here is a neo-libertarian, netarchical take, excerpted from ARUN SUNDARARAJAN, that tells us: always trust the intentions of business and their capacity to self-regulate:

I love this idea - a very creative way of pushing back against A&F's comments and image.  There are issues about sensitivity to the homeless that should be considered, but overall this is really creative and likely to be fairly effective - certainly much more so than, say, a demonstration outside some A&F flagship store, which is usually what ends up happening in situations like this.

Charles Simic has a superb piece on the NRA in the New York Times Review of Books.  Among other things...

"Any discussion about the influence of the NRA and other gun lobbies ought to make it clear that their chief mission is to drum up business for the 1,200 gun makers in this country. Guns, as even half-wits ought to realize, are manufactured not by freedom-loving patriots, but by people for whom private profit outweighs public good. That is why they are against the background checks that 90 percent of Americans say they want. Preventing criminals and mentally ill people from buying guns would cut into their earnings."

Ria Chhabra is a Women in STEM hero!  And organic food hero, too. And I bet her parents are pretty pleased with her, as well.

Libertarian free-market philosophy, making all our lives better. "Intuit has spent about $11.5 million on federal lobbying in the past five years — more than Apple or Amazon. Although the lobbying spans a range of issues, Intuit's disclosures pointedly note that the company 'opposes IRS government tax preparation.' The disclosures show that Intuit as recently as 2011 lobbied on two bills, both of which died, that would have allowed many taxpayers to file pre-filled returns for free." (ProPublica):

"A few minutes later, [she] begins to snore. There is no doubt that her snoring has not changed in two years. It has a double-reeded hum, the bumblebee continuo of Mongolian throat-singing. It has the slow grandeur of a whale's respiration."

Remember when I said (slightly controversially...) sitting is the new smoking?

Well, it turns out walking is the new... jogging?  Jenny Craig?  gym membership?

Pursuant to my earlier post on sitting as the new smoking...

The UCSF Library has installed a couple of "walkstation": computer workstations on standing desks above low speed  treadmills.

Ask me how AWESOME I think this is!  I totally want one in my office!

A great video of my favorite new band, #AdmiralFallow  performing live during their (not) recent (enough) US Tour...

This comes reasonably close to capturing how good they were when I saw them live at Cafe du Nord in San Francisco.

Shared from a good friend of mine because she knows I have two boys.  This is unfortunately fairly accurate.

The following came from an anonymous Mother in Austin, Texas...
Things I've learned from my Boys (honest and not kidding):
1. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.
2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.
3. A 3-year old Boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
4. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20 x 20 ft. room.

How to spell “unix,” 
with links

The name can be spelled three ways:
This commercial trademark has been owned by Bell Labs/AT&T, The Santa Cruz Operation, Novell Inc., Unix International, and the X/Open Consortium, now known as The Open Group. It refers to any computer operating system package that is derived from the code base developed at Bell Labs beginning in 1969.
The Bell Labs documentation was very careful to always spell UNIX in all capital letters, and small caps whereever possible.

The name pokes fun at a mainframe operating system called MULTICS. The authors of UNIX thought MULTICS was far too complicated for what it does. Excessive complexity is considered a sign of poor software design, and indicates poor software design management.

This is a generic name for allUNIX-... more »
