Madjid Boukri3,503Canadian 'Polar' Circle I  (Polar Circle II next)I started collecting Canadians a few weeks after the start of Google plus. There are now thousands of them and I had to split my Canadian Polar Circle in two because of the 500 Google share limit. Some people or pages here are not very active, many did not even circle me back, but I added all 'Canadians' without any restriction. This may change because carrying 900 people in circles makes you hit the 5000? limit very quick and I had to jettison some low posting G+ users.I will update the *Google+ Shared Circles" http://bit.ly/KxclRuHuge database of circles created by Chris Porter and they will stay there until the planet gets fully warmed up and transformed in a red hot burning rock. there will be no more Polar anything!2013-03-10 22:05:50487103CC G+

I'm very sad this video isn't at a higher resolution ...
If you enjoy watching freerunning (in real-life or video games) half as much as I do, you have to see this guy ... especially his inverted handhold trick.

Found longer version at 360p ... not ideal but better: India Monkey King scales new heights

Thanks +CNET for making me feel old ...

"In the video, kids and teens alike poke and prod the Walkman, without a clue as to how the portable player actually plays music. The kids also show a similar reaction when handed a plastic cassette tape and asked to put the tape in the Walkman."

Have you changed all your passwords on sites that may have been affected by Heartbleed?  How about your access points, routers, printers, security cameras, or other devices that may be running web or mail services?  They could also be affected.  Be sure to upgrade their firmware and change passwords.

I'm a little appalled by the reactions so far on this article ... a student uses a public exploit (stupidly) against a government agency and gets no access to an attorney for six hours?  Its digital mischief at best.

I was just reading this very interesting article on the opposing methods for teaching students to read at a young age and the following quote seemed incredibly profound:
    Students who come from "high literacy" households--where young children are read to on a regular basis, there are lots of children's books, and adults read regularly--tend to learn to read well regardless of the teaching approach used. These students tend to enter school with large vocabularies and reading readiness skills (an estimated 5% can already read when they enter school).

If those students from high literacy homes learn to read regardless of the method used, then isn't #literacy at home in fact the most significant problem to solve?

Is Android Project Hera Google's Multiplatform Android TV Plumbing?

As I noted in my post on Saturday (http://goo.gl/ihGQXk) and in Sunday's Exstream Week HOA (http://goo.gl/6ImRFo) my analysis points towards Android TV being a multiplatform capability that will encompass mobile devices as well as Chromecast and Android TV settop boxes and smart TVs. This strong rumor about an upcoming Android 4.5 release only confirms that sense of how AnTV will roll out.

According to +Android Police, this upcoming Android release will feature the ability for Android devices to have some nominal views and controls of apps running on other Android devices and Chrome OS devices. They say that Hera will operate via  "a special Chromium build meant to run on Android and execute tasks through the web both for Google and third-party apps."

Now, think about that quoted... more »

Exploring the world with +Google Glass

Just recently, I met this gentleman in the wilds beyond the desert. He was so curious and interested in Glass. Absolutely transfixed, he asked me everything about it, then tried it on and played and played and played!  He loved it!  

First I had him go through the same demo I give everyone.  I have them say, "Okay Glass, Take a picture" — it understands pretty much every accent around the world as far as I can tell. This always makes people freak out with excitement when they see the photo they just took floating as a hologram in front of their eyes.  

Then he started using it more and more, going through all my emails, watching videos, seeing my text messages, asking Google questions, checking weather... I mean it just went on and on and on... and then he started showing all his friends and telling them aboutit — he... more »

While this looks like a hardware hacking dream machine, the six month delay on getting a board puts it seriously out of the running for anything I'd want to buy.  It also makes me wonder about the actual costs of production six months from now.  While the creators claim the initial purchases are discounted compared to the future price, I can't imagine this not becoming cheaper to make with time and experience.

DLink just announced their new "affordable" top-of-rack 10GbE switch line, http://www.dlinkworks.com/DXS-3600.asp at ~$7000 for 8 ports. 

Now aside from having a 16 in the part number but only having 8 ports (DXS-3600-16S/SI??) this irritates me slightly because I've already deployed a wonderful top-of-rack 10GbE switch just last year, and it was under $1000: http://www.netgear.com/business/products/switches/unmanaged-plus/10g-plus-switch.aspx

Note: the DLink price is for a switch with all SFP ports which also means you're going to be paying per-port for the SFP modules.

Yes, I can see that the DLink product is managed and the Netgear is not, but I hardly see that as a $6000 feature.

When did linked apps become a default public data set on one's about page here?  I just noticed when looking at someone's profile that the apps they've linked are visible and thought that odd, so I looked at my own and set mine to not-visible. 

I'd prefer any new information about me to be vetted by me before its put on my profile, personally.  Thoughts?

My wife and I have some friends on that other social network pushing their BS MLM diet products, and it inspires us to look things up from time to time and feel sad for people who buy into such nonsense. 

Most recently, we looked up the published payouts Isagenix makes to its members, whose incomes from it are incredibly low it turns out. 
Sadly, when confronting someone who believes in something so completely and obviously fake, its hard to provide sufficient evidence to help them correct their view.

To solidify that, I'm certainly not the only one who feels that way.  This MD has a hard time too, despite being well-educated and having years of actual science-based medicine under her belt: http://www.csicop.org/si/show/defending_isagenix_a_case_study_in_flawed_thinking

Dressing your Social Media Content for Success
To enlarge image: i.imgur.com/aNjgAWg.jpg

As you know there are a bunch of social networks available today, from the relatively tiny one like Pinterest to the titan like Twitter, each has its own audience, taste and value.

And you've also heard that the more presence you have on social media the more you stand to gain.

But before you blatantly make accounts on every single network. Remember one thing: quality should be preferred to quantity. You should only have presence on as many platforms as you can manage well.

And to show you how can you dress up your social content for success and how can you post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn - the right way, +Pagemodo have put together the visual below that helps make your social media marketing a little more manageable!

Like many other Canadians, I have a love-hate relationship with my publicly funded healthcare and national broadcaster.  Mostly love, sometimes hate.  However, any time I feel despair about either, I just look south of the border.  Well our national broadcaster kindly has this tidbit on-line from US Senate testimony about health care, by a Canadian doctor: http://www.cbc.ca/asithappens/features/2014/03/12/canadian-doctor-schools-us-senator-on-public-health-care/

"American Senators are a curious bunch -- in a highly partisan sort of way. So when Canadian doctor Danielle Martin testified before a U.S. Senate hearing on single-payer public heath care yesterday, Republican Senator Richard Burr did not ask things like, "What makes your system work so well?" or "How can we Americans be more like you?" Here is how it went instead, for the record."

Ah the cross-border shopping debate.  I can buy a Schwinn 230 recumbent bike in Canada for $440 with free shipping, or I can purchase the 250 in the USA for $400, plus driving, plus duties.  The 250 isn't sold in Canada for God-knows what reason, and so if I had warranty issues I would probably be stuck, but the 230 has fewer features for the same price.

So much for free trade ...
