Graeme McRae26,639Graeme's Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+ If you add this circle, you will see hundreds of new posts per day in your stream from this circle alone. If you’re in the circle (you’ll know ‘cause I notified you) then please reshare it! It's a circle of people I started following a few months ago, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, "what's up" and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest (or funding). On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest are other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will suggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.Do you punish people for unfollowing you by unfollowing them back?. . . No. Well, not directly. I only unfollow people who haven’t posted in the past 7 days. If you posted privately to your circles or your extended circles, and then you unfollow me, then I won’t see those posts any more, and I’ll assume you haven’t posted in the past 7 days, and, yes, I will unfollow you in that case. But if your posts are public, my methodology doesn’t care whether you follow me.How can I get in your circle?. . . Don't bother trying to "get into" this circle. This circle isn't for you to get into. Think of it the other way around. This circle is for you to add, so you can follow a bunch of interesting and consistent people. The stream from this one circle will be chock-full of fascinating content for you to reshare. People will star2014-06-02 08:37:4243910814

Danial Hallock4,130The Three HundredRough DraftA few weeks ago I posted a rather lengthy post about how I was changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).  This is the first rough draft of that circle, minus a few ninjas that prefer not to be shared out.  As such, the landscape of this circle will change drastically over the next few months; but I wanted to give the people who are following this circle a glimpse of what to expect.  As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream? :D #thethreehundred   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring  2012-10-22 15:52:142971191078

Sean „Torber Sane“ Green1,7657th Circle of Hell SharesSo normally I don't do circle shares but this was something that +Mz Maau shared and I really like the people in it so I give you my Kick Assery circle. It contains a few extra from her original. Enjoy, most of them are hip on that word of "Engaging" (Is that still the buzz word?)2012-06-01 13:37:3714931314
Mz Maau2,163Ok, so, this is the promised revision of a circle I threw together in about 5 minutes for +Pierce Arner. I know, it's been at least a week or two since I promised to update and post it, and I'll be honest, my editing of the circle has been about a 15 minute affair, because I finally realized it will never be as perfect as I want it to be.So, if you're getting a notification, you're in the circle. There's another 30ish folks I'll tag in comments, so they're aware of it. Yes, I've lost track of the originating post. Sorry.As for the edits, well, I mostly rounded it out a bit. The original request was for sci-fi geekery, and I've thrown in some photographers I like, and some humourists, and a few random other folk.If you're not in this circle, don't be offended, it was built with an express intent, and I've been pretty scattered, so I expect I'm missing a good chunk of folks. Unfortunately.You can always make future edit requests on this post.Thank you for your time, and patience, and excellence!2012-05-19 22:59:03132184154

Since i didn´t publish any shared circles of this project lately, this time it is a mix of all people who are new and all people i added to my "On Display" circle before.

Here's the next evolution of my display project. I'm running a program on an Attiny85 that takes input via serial from an Arduino (offscreen) and writes it to the display. It doesn't seem like much, but that's a lot of work to get to this point.

Dirk Gently called and wants his sofa back.

The moving sofa problem

You've probably tried to move a sofa around a bend in a hallway.  It's annoying.   But it leads to some interesting math puzzles.  Let's keep things simple and work in 2 dimensions.  Then the moving sofa problem says:

What's the 2d shape of largest area that can be maneuvered through an L-shaped hallway of width 1? 

This movie shows one attempt to solve this problem.  It's called the
Hammersley sofa, since it was discovered by John Hammersley.  It has an area of

π/2 + 2/pπ = 2.2074...

But it's not the best known solution!  In 1992, Joseph Gerver found a shape of area 2.2195 that works.

On the other hand, Hammersley showed that any solution has to have area at most

2 sqrt(2) = 2.8282....

So, the moving sofa problem remains unsolved.  Another easily stated but very hard geometry problem!

You can see Joseph Gerver's sofa on this page by my friend Steve Finch:

http://web.archive.org/web/20080107101427/http://mathcad.com/library/constants/sofa.htm

Basically he rounded off some of the corners of Hammersley's sofa!

The movie here was made by Claudio Rocchini, and appears on the Wikipedia article:

I worked at McDonald's as a kid. I remember seeing nasty stuff happen, but I'm sure that would happen whenever you put kids in charge of making food for people without much supervision.

The learnin' I came away with:

1) Don't order anything deep-fried other than fries late at night because it's probably been sitting there for hours despite their rotation policy.

2) Get fries and burgers made without salt so you can make sure that they are actually fresh and aren't oversalted.

3) Egg McMuffin without meat is probably the healthiest and tastiest thing there (if you don't count the processed cheese).

My PCB actually works. I'm impressed. It's odd to work on something and have to wait a month before you can test it out, but it feels great when it actually works as you had planned. I couldn't imagine the effort and testing required to lay out a significantly more complicated PCB.

NEW PRODUCT – 32×32 RGB LED Matrix Panel – 5mm Pitch
http://adafru.it/e3b

Bring a little bit of Times Square into your home with this sweet 32 x 32 square RGB LED matrix panel. These panels are normally used to make video walls, here in New York we see them on the sides of busses and bus stops, to display animations or short video clips. We thought they looked really cool so we picked up a few boxes of them from a factory.

These are a lot like our 6mm Grid 32x32 RGB LED matrix panel, but The LEDs on this panel are also a little closer together (a 5mm grid) so you won’t have to stand as far away to appreciate it. They are made to look good indoors, even with a wide-angle view (160 degrees) and look great in ambient light.

These matrices have 1024 bright RGB LEDs arranged in a 32x32 grid on the front. On the back there is a PCB with two IDC connectors (one input, one output: in theory you can chain these together) and 12 16-bit latches that allow you to drive the display with a 1:16 scan rate.

These displays are technically 'chainable' - connect one output to the next input - but our Arduino example code does not support this (yet). It requires a high speed processor and more RAM than the Arduino has!

These panels require 13 digital pins (6 bit data, 7 bit control) and a good 5V supply, up to 2A per panel. We suggest our 2A regulated 5V adapter and then connecting a 2.1mm jack. Please check out our tutorial for more details!

Comes with:

 - A single 32x32 RGB panel,
 - An IDC cable
 - A power cable
 - We also include 4 mounting screws and mini-magnets (it appears these are often mounted on a magnetic base).

Keep in mind that these displays are designed to be driven by FPGAs or other high speed processors: they do not have built in PWM control of any kind. Instead, you're supposed to redraw the screen over and over to 'manually' PWM the whole thing. On a 16 MHz arduino, we managed to squeeze 12-bit color (4096 colors) with 40% CPU usage but this display would really shine if driven by any FPGA, CPLD, Propeller, XMOS or other high speed multi-core controller. The good news is that the display is pre-white balanced with nice uniformity so if you turn on all the LEDs it's not a particularly tinted white.

Of course, we wouldn't leave you with a datasheet and a "good luck!" We have a full wiring diagrams and working Arduino library code with examples from drawing pixels, lines, rectangles, circles and text. You'll get your color blasting within the hour! On an Arduino, you'll need 16 digital pins, and about 1600 bytes of RAM to buffer the 12-bit color image. At this time we do not have wiring documentation for the MEGA.
