AJ Durling294This is a bonus circle, and is actually pretty much where I started when I was creating my first circles - Top 500 PlussersIt is the people with the highest number of users - and is actually now only 308 people. When I first collected the Top 500 Plussers on Google+, I spend a lot of time weeding out the people whose posts in which I didn't particularly have an interest (e.g. almost all of the photographers - nothing against people who post photos to G+, it's just me: this is Google+, not Flickr; people who only ever promote themselves - so quite a lot of the pop musicians). The list that is left are people who, I think, actually contribute to the stream. You may find some surprising choices (Dolly Parton?! Actually, yes!). But I hope you enjoy it.I've kept the name Top 500 even though it is a lot fewer than 500. I like the irony... #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #celebrity   #topcircles  2012-10-19 15:06:56307302CC G+

Jason Wells17,834Top 50 Getting Verified Soon (v1)who's getting the CheckOut of the hundreds of millions of folks using Google+, there are currently just 7,240 verified users. I'd like to indulge in a little Google Kremlinology. Specifically, I'm interested in how Google decides who to verify and when to do it. Yes, it's got a lot to do with notoriety, but it's basically a numbers game. Google has verified everyone with millions of followers, celebrity or not... and almost no one with just a few (except some former Google Buzz or Wave users). So there must be a line; pass a certain number of followers and you can be virtually guaranteed a check mark. I wondered, where is that line? And who's approaching it?The people in this circle, that's who.In collaboration with +Chris Macidis, who at my request developed the report I used as the basis of this circle, I present the top 50 people, ranked by follower count, who have not yet been verified. Being in this circle doesn't guarantee you'll be verified today or tomorrow, but mathematically, it's probably coming sometime soon--assuming you are who you claim to be!Fun facts about this circle:- Just 2 people have 1M+ followers but aren't yet verified.- Just 7 more people have 100k+ followers but aren't yet verified.- The person with the median follower count of the top 50 is +Varina Patel, at 57,609. This is a very simple but useful indicator: if you attract 57k followers or so, I think you can reasonably anticipate a checkmark on your profile page sometime soon.Last but not least: please don't take this circle too seriously. Follower count is not even remotely correlated with one's value as a human being. Neither is the oft-coveted Check. We're just having a little fun with the Google+ APIs here… using them to get a peek behind the curtains, and at the same time, showcase some pretty interesting folks that aren't often grouped together.Membership in this circle will change over time. No one gets into this one by asking nicely; you have to meet the criteria. Every now and then, as people move into or out of this circle, I'll reshare it. I'd encourage you to share it too.2012-08-25 20:03:545067919CC G+

Jason Wells13,970Top 100 Unverified (v1)on the cuspI've always been a little intrigued by the concept of a "verified user." Ostensibly to ensure the true identity of the person behind a profile, it also serves as a validation of notability, social success or even celebrity. At this point in time, almost 6900 Google+ users have the checkmark. And while Google verifies users according to their own criteria, everyone above a certain number of followers is verified. As it happens, right now that certain number is about 588,000.This is I believe a unique list: the top 100 people, ranked by follower count, that are at or below that line. In other words, the people who are just about to get on Google's verification radar. So it ranges from +Maria Popova, with roughly 588k followers, to +Matt Steiner, with about 39k.It's an interesting group of people, predominantly photographers or other visual artists. Some of them are quite good. There's a broad swathe of nationalities represented. Interestingly, most of them are people I haven't seen on G+ before, although there are a few familiar faces. What unites them all is that they're all very close to earning their checkmarks.As they get verified, people will fall out of this circle, so I expect to change often. So I'll reshare this circle periodically with the refreshed top 100 unchecked folks. I encourage you to reshare it too.(Props to +Chris Macidis, my technical collaborator.)2012-07-16 14:58:18100515CC G+

As pointed out in the comments on my last entry, I do have lots of followers here, but there is very little for me to READ here. I go to Twitter to read what others say, and post when I'm on there.
There is not enough content driving me to come here. Some indie developers post some interesting stuff, but I usually have heard of most of it through other channels.

(Disclaimer: I'm not an educated mathematician. Feel free to double check my results and tell me if I'm wrong)

So, to explain the lottery question and the very unintuitive answer..

Every time you don't win, someone else wins. The number of people who have won the lottery once will very quickly grow significantly larger than the number of people you are. Since they are more than you, the odds of one of them winning are higher than the odds of you winning, which means that there will eventually be at least one person who has won the lottery twice.
That person has the same chance of winning as you do, so each drawing, you both have a one-in-a-hundred-million chance of winning. If neither do, either someone who has never won will win, or someone who has won once will win, and there will suddenly be twice as many people who have won twice than you are.

If neither do, either someone who has never won will win, or someone who has won once will win, and there will suddenly be twice as many people who have won twice than you are.
Because of the high number of participants, this gets iterated maaaany times before you're likely to win (50 million times on average), and the pool of winners who aren't you has plenty of time to grow.

Even in a lottery of just 1000 people, your odds of winning before someone else wins three times is only about 15%.

The odds of you winning a fair 100 million person lottery before someone else wins TEN times in total is about 50%.

This, my friends, is the power of the pigeon hole principle.___

The chance of you winning before someone else wins three times is less than half a percent.

Let's say we have a fair lottery where a hundred million people get one ticket each, and a winner is drawn at random each day. The winner stays in the pool even after winning. What are the odds that you win it once before someone else wins it three times (doesn't have to be in a row)?___The chance of you winning before someone else wins three times is less than half a percent.

Game design tip time!

1) Particles. Thousands of them.

2) Think about what rewards players get. Does the game implicitly encourage the player to do boring things? Don't.

3) I'm telling you, particles.

Mojang will be at PAX. We'll have the first playable version of the Adventure Update there, and it will be released to the public once we've adressed the feedback we get at PAX.

Yes, this is a marketing thing. ;) But also, we're doing some pretty bold changes to the game, and knowing we have the time to just play around with features we might now want to release is pretty liberating. Combat in 1.8, for example, is already way more fun than in 1.7, but it need further tweaking.

Blocking with RMB while holding a weapon is totally useless unless enemies tell you when they're about to attack. So I'll guess we'll have to add attack animations for all hostile mobs!

There's a cool festival thing in Austin a few weeks before MineCon in Vegas. There's no way I could go there, back home, and back to the US that soon again without losing my sanity. But then I realized I don't need to be in any specific geographic location to work on Minecraft..
So I could go to the festival, do my little appearance, then travel the US for a couple of weeks, working from hotel rooms and Cafés, polishing up the final details in Minecraft, then go to Vegas in time for MineCon.

Crazy plan? Yes. Doable? Maybe!

We just released 1.7.3, fixing a few piston bugs. Who knew such a "minor" feature would have so many corner cases, eh? :D

Thankfully, we got a lot of testing help from the Bukkit team. Behind the scenes, we've been testing the "modding api" (which in reality is just the full source code behind a license saying you can only use it to make free stuff, and that everything you make based off that can only be playable by people who have bought Minecraft) with them, and it's going very well.
We need to do some website infrastructure to allow anyone to sign up, but things are progressing nicely.

So I added sprinting, just to try it out. Double tap forward to start running, like the fast jump move thing from Unreal, but it only works forwards, like sprinting in most modern FPS games. It felt slow and weird until I added a FOV change as well, but now it's fun and addictive. I feel like there needs to be a drawback to doing it, though, or you'll feel like you're wasting time when you're not sprinting.
