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 17:49:57340441178CC G+

Brian Wolfe22,328I haven't shared a circle in a long time. Maybe too long.Anyways.. Here is the circle that my browser spends the most time on.   Just in case I become a petulant child and walk away (not that I'm planning on doing so , just in case.)2013-08-22 05:36:251941335CC G+
Mz Maau10,204I rarely share circles, and I regret to inform, this is not the promised #CircleDirk , rather, it's a circle I've been semi-maintaining since last spring, when it was created for +Pierce Arner to jump-start his Plus experience.Today, I'm resharing the current version on behalf of +Søren Dalsgaard Brath, who, like Pierce, is looking for new content for his stream.I figure he and I probably have a chunk of overlap, so I've added a few extras he might not yet know about.Some notes about the curation of this circle:I've tried to set aside those who have not posted recently, and I've tried to only include those who post publicly, or to extended circles.  I may have missed a few, and if you're in this circle and would like to be permanently removed, please let me know.This is not the final version, as I'm not sure such a thing is possible.This circle DOES come with a warning:You will, most likely, NOT enjoy everyone in this circle.  I, like many, have eclectic tastes, and I'm still a bit gun-shy after seeing some of the explosions from last year's crossing of the streams, so PLEASE, edit this circle to your liking with that in mind.If I ping you, you're in the circle.  There is no expectation or requirement to add this circle, it's merely a courtesy ping.  Again, if you would like to be removed from any future circle shares, please let me know.And yes, I promise, I'm still working on the #CircleDirk .Also note:  This is NOT an indication of who I like best, though some are included in this circle.  It is simply meant to be a sample of the diversity I follow.#PinkAndFluffyPersonsOfQuestionableRepute2013-06-22 16:38:09164143576CC 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+

CircleCount52,441The people who have voted on our first pollCheck out the people who have voted on our first poll on CircleCount (http://www.circlecount.com/poll/1).Why are these people interesting? Because they are active! ;)We had a very good discussion with +Richard Hoefer and +Bearman Cartoons here: https://plus.google.com/+CircleCount/posts/AMbHGT3Qu1m and one idea was to feature a special group of people and not only the most followed or most engaging ones.I think this circle is not really what +Richard Hoefer meant, but it goes hopefully in the right direction ;)We like such unusual shared circles, since these people didn't act because we have offered to share them in a circle afterwards. They just did/voted/reviewed! ;)A year ago we have already shared a circle like this with the people who have written a review for our Chrome Extension:https://plus.google.com/+CircleCount/posts/6WCpwBTQxKj2013-04-19 10:25:26165772973CC G+

OK, +Google Chrome developers, now you're really starting to piss me off. This is getting ABSURD.

This morning my mother got the following message:

"This computer will soon stop receiving Google Chrome updates because its hardware is no longer supported."

This is apparently because the CPU in her desktop computer, running a fully patched Windows 7, and which is perfectly fast enough for most of the Web -- it's a multi-GHz AMD Athlon XP -- does not have SSE2 instructions, and the developers can't be bothered to change compile switches:

I know I'm feeling older when...

...I explain to a guy in his 20s, currently attending the 100k+ attendee Orlando (Florida) Pride parade, that I attended the very first such parade in my own early 20s, where barely a thousand people attended. And then I think "Well, that was just 18 years ago!"

Of course, that same guy was barely in grade school when the first rainbow flags flew in that city's downtown, only to be removed at the end of that month and not to be seen again for many years, thanks to a city ban on non-city-official symbolism. It wasn't the first time that rainbow flags were flown in a U.S. city in June, but it was one of the first well-publicized times, drawing the public ire of Pat Robertson and his ilk.

Times like these really put changes in perspective.

May 28, 1998, flags go up in downtown Orlando:... more »

Meshach Taylor dead at 67

"A Crack in Legal Unanimity for Gay Marriage"? Not really.


Creating a national mandate for gay marriage, even in states where it is unpopular, "turns the notion of a limited national government on its head," [Justice Paul Kelly] wrote, adding later: "We should resist the temptation to become philosopher-kings, imposing our views under the guise of constitutional interpretation of the 14th Amendment."


It did not surprise Blain Myhre, a Denver appellate attorney who has argued multiple cases before Kelly. "He may have a more limited view of the role of the federal courts than a more liberal judge," Myhre said. But, he added, "I don't view him as an ideologue."

I guess Mr. Myhre has never heard of Tenthers. I'm not saying that Judge Kelly is one, only that he may be... more »

The "Gay Agenda":

1. Equal rights for all.
2. There is no point 2.

The Anti-Gay Agenda:

1. Use race as a wedge issue to pit non-whites against LGBT people.
2. Make "traditional marriage" a point of cultural pride amongst Latino Americans.
3. Many further detailed plans to use racism, sexism, and culturism to incite hatred and drive wedges between people.

For once, the +Human Rights Campaign has done something more useful than throw yet another gala or black-tie dinner (a common complaint about HRC over the last 15 years or so). They brought these documents to the forefront, so I must thank you for proving this one simple fact:

There is no such thing as the "gay agenda". There is a very meticulously planned anti-gay agenda, however.

So I finally finished watching the +COSMOSonTV series produced by Seth McFarlane and Brannon Braga. (Yes, I figured the CGI would be strong with this one, given the latter name.)

The whole series reminded me of Carl Sagan's original, which I watched when I was a wee little child.

I came very close to tears when the final episode of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey replayed Dr. Sagan's monologue about the #PaleBlueDot , followed by Neil deGrasse Tyson's reiteration of how critical #science is to the world as a whole.

But then Dr. Tyson goes and says this line, which is continuous, but here taken just slightly out of context... because, having already regressed a little to my younger self watching all of this, I got a totally unnecessary laugh out of it. Dr. Tyson, #Phrasing !!

I'm sorry. Really. I didn't mean to crack up like a four-year-old.... more »

The Islamic militant group that swept across northern Iraq and captured two major cities last week has posted graphic photos that appear to show its fighters massacring dozens of captured Iraqi soldiers.

The pictures on a militant website appear to show masked fighters of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, loading the captives onto flatbed trucks before forcing them to lie face-down in a shallow ditch with their arms tied behind their backs.

So you feel like glorifying Ronald Reagan ten years (and a day) after he died?

Oh, I'm in a blocking mood today, folks. C'mon, try me. Or, read this article from ten years ago, which is just as valid today.

(Edit: Yes, I was taught that one should always speak good of the dead. So here goes: He's dead. Good.)

OK, who set the sky on fire tonight? Possibly the second-eeriest color I've seen -- next to the sky in the eye of Hurricane Andrew, which was a swirl of orange and lavender-violet.

A very weird sunset refraction effect that lasted for about 10 minutes but was so bright that it was like an orange-red daytime through the windows. All I could find in time was my crappy cheap cellphone to take a picture.

(Google Auto-Enhance turned off to make this look much more like the real thing.)

In case you forgot, The Onion is launching a parody of Upworthy and Buzzfeed this month. IT CAN'T COME QUICKLY ENOUGH. Viral clickbait articles are the scourge of today's Internet.

Of course, the author of this article could have come up with a better title, like You Won't Believe What's About To Happen To Social Media!

The Secret Service wants software that detects social media sarcasm. "Our objective is to automate our social media monitoring process. Twitter is what we analyze. This is real time stream analysis. The ability to detect sarcasm and false positives is just one of 16 or 18 things we are looking at. We are looking for the ability to quantity our social media outreach." Some of the other things the agency wants are "the ability to identify social media influencers, analyze data streams in real time, access old Twitter data and use heat maps. And it wants the software to be compatible with Internet Explorer 8."

Today's IT recruiter of shame: +Kenexa, an IBM Company

I get plenty of recruiter e-mail from people who don't read the very bold, loud statement in my résumé that I am not open to relocation. Those usually just get relegated to the Spam folder so that the recruiters in question, who are generally clueless, get learned as spammy by the mail filter weighting systems.

(Further, my profile on LinkedIn, et al., says I'm not on the market. I like where I work, and the relatively low level of stress, so it'd take a whole lot of significant sway to pull me away.)

This particular recruiter is a little bit crass (or is it desperate?). One of the scouts from this recruitment firm, a subsidiary of IBM, decided to ignore my no-relo statement AND send the same mail to both my personal and work accounts. The last bit is probably the tackiest part.more »

"Born With Curiosity follows US Navy Commander and computer pioneer, Grace Hopper's personal and professional life through the birth of the modern technology industry and the evolution of women's roles in American society.  Although Grace had a quirky sense-of-humor and defied many conventions of her time, she did not see herself as the quintessential poster girl for the women’s liberation movement, but that didn't stop her from becoming one.  Our film captures the excitement of the birth of computer programming and all the advancements it brought about while (re-)introducing Grace in all her complexities."

Escape from Tomorrow: What the hell did I just watch!?

It's like a film noir -- on LSD -- and features the most magical place on earth in a not so magical framing. The only way this would be more trippy is if Aronofsky did it himself.

Using Friends+Me: Free for Casual Posters!

+Friends+Me is a social network repost tool -- allowing you to write your posts in one place (ideally Google+), and echo the posts to one or more others (including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Tumblr). It's better than some services like +IFTTT for this purpose, because it preserves some of formatting in the repost (at least paragraph breaks). F+M also offers the ability to jump to the G+ post directly from all the other networks.

Looks like F+M now has a pretty spiffy setup for its free accounts: connect one of each social network as either a source or destination account (but not both at the same time), which is great for individual casual posters. The time from original post to repost for free accounts can be up to three hours, but tends to be significantly faster than that.

Google Plus Ghost Town? My Open Letter to The Misguided Reporters

Know what the common theme is between all these “ghost town posts”? No interviews. No named sources. Lots of reporters who never used it. A quick search usually shows that the reporter has not used Google+ themselves. Likely to not even post the article they just wrote about the platform. In fact most have less than 20 people circled and more often than not... have never even posted. Awesome. Good Reporters generally go out and interview people who are involved with something before they write a story, if they themselves don’t have first had experience. This is fringe opinion piece media. Yet tons of these garbage articles keep getting posted on major tech publications presenting like its the facts.

I figured it was time I wrote a letter to these reporters. Please media… realize that I have tried to reachout and... more »

I'm dying over here....How did no one know this was a bad idea...?

A request by the New York City Police Department has backfired — in a very public way.

Its request that Twitter users share pictures of them posing with police officers has caused people to start sending in photos of police brutality.

Exploding the Phone (note: this is a screenshot, not clickable, for a reason -- expand this post for the actual link)

I finally got off my lazy ass and bought a copy of this after putting it off for months. I think it was Google Play Store's original suggested retail price that roped me in. I'm not sure why...

For as much as I know about old telephone systems, most of this stuff actually predates me; I wasn't even born until 1976. Oddly, though, I did run into a few of these characters in the early 1980s, partly thanks to the fact that I lived in a place where the telephone system was still... let's say a little more flexible than most.¹

A rose by any other name: Java 8 offers multiple inheritance after two decades

In the world of object-oriented programming, no single topic has spawned more (often heated) argument than the concept of multiple inheritance. With the release of Java SE 8, the last major holdout against this concept has finally given in. Does this signal the end of the debate?

OK, +Google Chrome developers, now you're really starting to piss me off. This is getting ABSURD.

This morning my mother got the following message:

"This computer will soon stop receiving Google Chrome updates because its hardware is no longer supported."

This is apparently because the CPU in her desktop computer, running a fully patched Windows 7, and which is perfectly fast enough for most of the Web -- it's a multi-GHz AMD Athlon XP -- does not have SSE2 instructions, and the developers can't be bothered to change compile switches:

Heartbleed from The Codeless Code

A novice asked of master Bawan: “Say something about the Heartbleed Bug.”

Said Bawan: “Chiuyin, the Governor’s treasurer, is blind as an earthworm. A thief may give him a coin of tin, claim that it is silver and receive change. When the treasury is empty, which man is the villain? Speak right and I will spare you all blows for one week. Speak wrong and my staff will fly!”

The novice thought: if I say the thief, Bawan will surely strike me, for it is the treasurer who doles out the coins. But if I say the treasurer he will also strike me, for it is the thief who takes advantage of the situation.

When the pause grew too long, Bawan raised his staff high. Suddenly enlightened, the novice cried out: “The Governor! For who else made this blind man his treasurer?”

Bawan lowered his staff. “And who isthe Governor?”<... more »

+feedly today announced* that it's integrating with a "new" service, +Zapier. Though "new" may be pushing it a little; Zapier appears to be almost identical in purpose to +IFTTT with two main differences:

* Zapier offers business-oriented "premium" services (generally ones which charge by the API call). IFTTT only connects to services with freely published APIs.

* Zapier has a relatively low free number of triggers ("tasks") per month (100). IFTTT has no pre-declared limits, though it does have limits on size of data that can be transported from or to some services (likely for bandwidth reasons).

Both services use "if <source> then <sink>" logic, which works for a lot of things but lacks an important capability: filtering.

On the other end of the extreme, of course, is Yahoo Pipes, which is ar... more »

Now that it's past midnight Pacific time and officially April 2 there, I have to wonder: Was there a reason behind #AutoHoffsome beyond the obvious hilarity and fun?

The number of photos with +David Hasselhoff added, particularly so many with his photo grafted to appear behind others in the modified photos, strongly suggests to me that Google may have some automated edge-detection capabilities for photos beyond those typically found in image editors such as Photoshop. Well, either that, or there was a small army of people doing the image grafting by hand (which feels too anti-Google).

I wonder whether there's an #autoawesome "splice me into/out of this photo" capability coming. But I don't expect an announcement of such a feature until it exists, of course.

What a #hoffsome day!
