Larry Chuon74I'm creating a new circle called Celebrity Credibility which will consist of movers and shakers in their industries.  This circle will focus on getting instant Celebrity Credibility in order to be the authority in your own local niche.  Please join my circle and share the news.2014-02-08 04:22:15293000
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 05:36:251941335
Vago Damitio8,732Creative Circle #5 of 11 or was it #4 Crap.Creative Circle 1 of 11I am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-12 23:35:21143000
Andrea Memenas5,995There are so many awesome women in my "Smart Chicks" circle that it exceeds G+'s 500-people-shared-at-once limit...You really need to follow these ladies. It will immediately make your G+ experience better.2012-10-23 20:00:075009010
M Monica0My 75 Secret Weapons Circle I don't often share circles, because I don't usually see the need.But this is the one circle I check most often, on a daily basis, and I end up resharing from it most often. So here it is, my secret weapon circle: Folks who post a lot of science like +Philip Plait  are in here, as well as +Rajini Rao  and +Betsy McCall  The insightful commentary and daily curated threads of  +Alex Grossman are important in my stream too, as is the humor of +Steve Barry.  +Natalie Villalobos is in there for her beautiful yoga pictures, which always relax me.  +James Williams for digging up the best articles and also funny pics.  +Chase Sterling  for her blog, +Melissa Carlson  as an excellent news anchor using Plus. +P E Sharpe  for her off the wall style humor, (and stunning art.)  When I look at this list I'm amazed by the quality of people I've been able to meet here.  This circle does have a handful of well known folks like +Mike Elgan  and +Larry Fournillier, +Amanda Blain,  in here. (Just because they're well known does not mean they are not high quality.) But there are also some pages you may not be so familiar with like  +Liz Krane, +Sonny Williamson, +2012-10-16 12:20:437525531
Liz Quilty36,538Not doing  #AZFaves , but i will share my tech circles.This is my Women in tech, its a circle i like to use to help promote more support for those females in technology, and so females in tech can connect with each other. #stemwomen  2012-10-04 00:04:41159251524

Fulvio Gerardi6,387Thanks to a circle share from +Euro Maestro, I realised its been a while since I've shared my #Whovian circles. And yes, the new series is coming soon.In case you've forgotten, there are three circles.... Guys, Gals, and Overflow (pages, androgynous, smurfs, and more guys). "Dead" Plussers have been removed, so these should all be active people.This is the Girls.2012-08-22 14:48:34347101
Laura Scott1,505With #DrupalCon Munich happening next week, what better time to share our #Drupal  circles? Here is my Drupal circle. Share yours, if you're so inclined. There must be more than 389 folks out there.As for München, I couldn't break away from The Big Project. I'll be there in spirit.2012-08-17 16:23:15389024
David Hartley0These are news organizations or people that are new, or just deserving of more attention. It includes all media forms. Check them out, there are any number of fascinating new people to engage with.#sharedcircles 2012-08-01 17:20:05435101
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 14:29:094671718
Laura Scott1,476Thought I'd share my circle of #Drupal  folks today and spread the love. Many are missing, and managing circles manually is a usability nightmare on g+. Maybe you'd like to share your #Drupal  circles, too?2012-06-29 20:51:06262301

Jimmy James1,980Ok... Here is what I consider to be a valuable circle indeed. My first shared circle, so why not start with the Best ....Ladies . If you know the G+ Men to Women ratio.... you know there are too few ladies out here so far. Add this circle to balance your stream a bit. There are some very interesting people in here. I left it at 400 to start in case I miss any ladies who want to be added. If I missed you and you would like to be in this circle... let me know. ....this circle includes 1 really cool guy.... the guy all these fantastic Ladies have in common2012-03-16 18:31:504001457
Andrea Memenas4,752It stinks that I can't share this entire circle (it's up to 605 and G+ only allows you to share up to 500) with you, but 500 smart chicks is better than none. Happy International Women's Day! Please circle these kick-ass females!2012-03-08 23:09:13500405
Liz Krane8,299In honor of International Women's Day, I'm sharing my circle of sciencey/techy/geeky women who are also active G+ users. :) Some are scientists, programmers, engineers, science writers, math lovers, lovable geeks and nerds... and all of them will contribute some great posts to your stream.I first shared this circle to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day, and it has grown a bit, but I know it's missing a lot of people! So please shout out who else I should add!2012-03-08 17:22:41138171130
Luis Gibb202So since its been a while since I shared my Magic Circle and Innistrad and Dark Ascension have come out... I figured I would update this circle again. If you are a Magic the Gathering fan, player, whatever - join in on the fun!2012-03-06 21:09:26326400
pio dal cin15,828A warm welcome to some great people here on G+'s Musketeers of Google plus circle#Musketeers.Please welcome: +Chris Lang +Mark Traphagen +Lee Smallwood +La Vergne Lestermeringolo Thatch +Travis Campbell Circle them for great content as well as the other 500+ (there is another circle of almost 200 that I'm sharing after this one having reached the 500 limit).If you are new to Google plus, set your stream full throttle on these two circles and you'll have all the updates and vital information to "play this great game".If you have been here long enough check these people once in a while; they are the "bricks" of this establishment.Don't forget that +Sharing is Caring on G+ , so when you want to show your G Love to someone share their content after you pluss it...they are going to love it as much as you do.There is another group here that you may want to join +Community Support - Friends That Listen designed and wanted by +M Monica for reaching out to anyone here on G+ and to let them know than nobody here is left alone.2012-03-05 22:17:23162719

Changing my gender to male on Google+ improved my What's Hot experience Google+ has updated how they distribute content to users through Explore

Earlier today, +Kimberly Chapman told me about a little experiment she'd done.

Noisebridge passed a provisional 3 month anti-harassment policy. An interesting experiment!  I'm heartened that it's going to be tried!

Last night, Noisebridge broke tradition and enacted an Anti-Harassment policy.  Here's why that matters.

For the last five years, Noisebridge, one of the oldest hackerspaces in the country, has been run as a consensus-based anarchist collective that had just one rule: "Be excellent to one another."  It's consensus-driven political process means that any major changes to the space that go beyond its typical "doocracy" have to be put up for consensus, a system in which a single member's refusal to agree can shut down an otherwise popular request.  The consensus process is one that is not conducive to much in the way of governance, though this is of course generally viewed as more of a feature than a bug; it ensures that the space remain true to its anarchist roots.

Recently, this has become more and more problematic, as attempts to remove sexual predators from the space have been stymied by the presence of lone, oblivious members of the community who simply refuse to believe that someone they consider a friend might not be a friend to women in the space.  The situation at Noisebridge has gotten so bad (alongside other issues such as dirtiness and homeless people living in the space) that long-time members went so far as to put in a proposal that Noisebridge seek to terminate its lease[1], presumably to then rebirth itself at a new location with tighter access control.  Although it was clear that this proposal would never pass consensus, the decision was made that we would discuss the reasons why it was proposed, in the hopes of fixing the underlying issues in the future.  By sheer luck, the meeting had been scheduled shortly after a feminist hacking event sponsored by Double-Union, a local feminist hackerspace, and as a result a large contingent of woman hackers was present.  Stories pretty quickly came out about why so many were willing to let the space die.

I've been spending time at Noisebridge for the last year, and in that time, I've been harassed by multiple people on many different occasions, almost always with members present.  Never once has a member intervened or spoken up on my behalf: not when Weev called me a cunt or made anti-semitic, anti-mormon, anti-woman, anti-gay jokes loudly in the space, not when someone loudly (and descriptively) told me about the "sluts" they double-penetrated the night before, not when an individual (upon seeing me about to leave the space on my Powerisers) declared "I love your stilts.  I'm going to make you my bride and then those will be mine" before slapping my ass as I was leaving just a few weeks ago.  The closest thing I have felt to supported in the space was when one individual decided to doocratically paint over the bathroom wall, which at the time was covered in images of maimed and broken crying women with enormous tits and waists so thin they would make Barbie jealous.  It has become abundantly clear to most women in the space that "Be Excellent" has failed us.  

Any other night, the telling of these stories would simply have been an explanation of why we were willing to let go of Noisebridge, why we were ready to withdraw from the community, but that night we had just come from a room full of interesting, engaging, awesome feminist hackers, and I had sitting in my email a very clear anti-harassment policy that had been created by the good folks at the +Ada Initiative and the ladies of Double Union.  Once the dust had settled, we made a proposal: to adopt an anti-harassment policy, post it visibly in the space, and empower members to remove the toxic elements from the community, without having to go through the consensus process to do so.  The policy we proposed is as follows:

Noisebridge is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of people at our events or space in any form. Sexual language and imagery should be only be used for positive purposes in accordance with best practices advocated by professional sex educators (if you’re not sure what those are, don’t do it). People violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the space or the event at the discretion of any Noisebridge member.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. People asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately."

The key strength of the policy is that it allows a member to kick someone out, without requiring consensus to do so.  This prevents the situation we've sadly been dealing with in which individuals regularly block attempts to remove predators from the space, but brought some concerns about evidence and the possibility of innocent people being excluded.  The policy did pass (provisionally), but not without objection.  The arguments against it were the standard ones: free speech, false accusations, and straight-up denial of there being a problem at all.  A few people expressed concerns about the possibility of the policy being used in retaliatory ways (the old "false-rape accusations" argument), including Monad, the lone member who threatened to block.  He, of course is responsible for perhaps the best quote of the night: "The first sentence is fine.....the rest of it is just stupid to me."

Monad was demonstrating exactly the problem Noisebridge has had for years.  He was fine with the idea of there being a policy, with saying "Noisebridge is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience," but he balked at the idea of defining what harassment was or creating any system by which it could be dealt with.  In short, he wanted to simply be able to say "be excellent" and have it happen, but wasn't willing to accept that for some things, specifics are needed.

Some arguments, especially those that erupted on twitter after Leif Ryge, a Noisebridge member, tweeted his displeasure about the policy [2], centered on the idea that it was tantamount to censorship, banning "sexual imagery and language."  Of course, Leif's tweet was misleading, as the policy doesn't ban sexual language & imagery entirely, just mandates that "Sexual language and imagery should be only be used for positive purposes."   It's a far cry from the "censorship" that some people are claiming this represents.

In the end, we weren't able to convince Monad from backing down on his threat to block, a position he justified by claiming that the policy might be used alongside false accusations as a way of removing people you don't like from the space, so we settled on a compromise: to pass the measure with an expiration date, so that we could have a few months to tweak the language, perfect it and smooth out any issues, and see whether or not any of these "false accusations" that are so often the favorite arguments of rape apologists actually occurred.  To those of you that believe that the policy is needed, but needs some tweaking, I hope that you will use the time between now and January to iron out the details and come back with an even better policy: one that makes it clear that harassment is not acceptable behavior in the space, that still has teeth, and that can draw clear lines and boundaries that ensure that unwanted sexual attention is unacceptable while perhaps approaching the issue from a slightly more sex-positive standpoint.

Giant eyeroll. Way to reify...

Changing my gender to male on Google+ improved my What's Hot experience Google+ has updated how they distribute content to users through Explore

Earlier today, +Kimberly Chapman told me about a little experiment she'd done. She'd opened a tab on her browser and directed it to plus.google.com/explore, a stream that enables you to see the hottest content on Google+. In another tab, Chapman changed her gender on her Google+ profile from female to male, and then loaded the Explore page into another tab.

The difference was astonishing. "As a girl, I get stupid warm-fuzzy meaningless shit," Chapman writes on a post (http://goo.gl/ZDBxT). "As a guy, I get nerdy stuff. This is not okay. I get that [What's Hot] algorithms are based on what people click, like, share, comment on, etc. Fine. But I challenge anyone to give me one good reason why there should be such a drastic difference in less than ten seconds by simply changing my gender, other than institutionalized sexism about what girls and guys apparently like."

I tried the experiment myself just a moment ago. Below are ten posts that graced my screen, organized into pairs. I have paired them based on their placement on my stream and no other factors. The example image shown below, for instance, shows a post with a quote and one with a bar graph -- the quote was the fifth post on my Explore stream when I was female and the bar graph was the fifth post on my Explore stream when I was male.

Note that I have not changed anything other than my profile. And despite my extensive interaction with the social network, when I'm female, gadgets might as well not exist. When I was male, I saw two posts referencing #io13 , but there was no mention of the event when I was female. In fact, the closest thing to tech news I got as a female was an article about how to become an influencer on Pinterest. Needless to say, this article didn't show up when I was male.

Neither did the nausea-inducing feel-good quotes on pictures. 

+Yonatan Zunger, Chief Architect of Google+, responded to the issue, saying: "What's Hot is based both on properties inherent to the post -- how people have reacted to it when they saw it, +1's, reshares, and so on -- and on properties of the viewer, especially profile info. Gender is one of those signals, as are quite a few other things. From what I can tell, gender is having a relatively large effect on the result set, because our models (based on people's actual responses to seeing these things) seem to show a pretty sharp gender difference in response."

He agreed the model is too gender sensitive, adding that a team is currently working on content recommendations that better reflect individual user preferences. He assures users that "there was no human editing to say that women like X and men like Y."

UPDATE: At 13:08 Pacific, Zunger commented on this post saying that   further discussion with the What's Hot team has revealed that the system that populates Explore is using an old-generation algorithm, which is known to have been very gender sensitive.

"The system that populates the actual What's Hot posts you see in your [Home] stream is the more modernized system, with a lot more subtlety in its model, and it does not have the same level of gender sensitivity," Zunger added. "It's still aware of it, but it's a small feature, not a big one."

Google+ plans to upgrade Explore to the new algorithm. Thank you, Google+ team for being responsive about this issue. We look forward to seeing how this algorithm continues to evolve to serve us more and more of the content each of us wants.___Giant eyeroll. Way to reify...

Right on.

+Linus Torvalds you have a terrible temper and you treat people really badly.

You don't have to face the consequences of your actions because of your position of power. That makes your behaviour doubly reprehensible.

You are a bully. You need to get help.

+The Linux Foundation You need to take responsibility for the behaviour of your fellows on public mailing lists. You need to establish some guidelines for fellows, and you need to stick with them, regardless of who breaks them.

+IBM +Fujitsu +HP Intel NEC Oracle +Qualcomm +Samsung USA and other Linux Foundation members need to decide if they want to have their brands associated with bullying behaviour and homophobic slurs.

And the rest of of have to start saying that this kind of behaviour isn't OK.___Right on.

Awesome.

I bought a digital video download today that required a video player from Leaping Brain. As usual, the proprietary player wasn't great and to transfer it to my iPhone I'd need another proprietary player. Ugh. But I browsed around and found that the video had been downloaded into a hidden directory as a bunch of .mov files. Great, except none of the files would play.

It turned out the actual player, launched from their compiled app, was a Python wrapper around some VLC libraries. Nothing funny going on, as far as I could tell, but when I tried to launch the player directly, nothing happened. The compiled app was modifying the .mov files right before they were loaded into the player, and then reverting the file on disk. According to http://leapingbrain.com/mod-machine/faq/:

 "We apply our BrainTrust™ proprietary video encryption to your movies before we upload them to our servers. If someone ever was able to gain access to your content, the files would be useless and unplayable, because they are stored in a scrambled, encrypted format. Once downloaded to the user’s hard drive, the files are still encrypted and only readable via the MOD Machine Player by a legitimate owner. We are not aware of a better DRM scheme than ours. Where Windows Media DRM is easily crackable, and doesn’t run on Macs, BrainTrust™ works great on Windows 8, Vista, Windows XP and Mac, and is virtually uncrackable."

Virtually uncrackable? Well, since they load the file from a Python script, it's easy to make a copy of the "decrypted" file before it's reverted. Having done so, I was curious to see the encryption scheme. By comparing the binary files, I discovered the "proprietary video encryption" algorithm: for the first 15kB, each 1kB block has its initial bytes xor'd with the string "RANDOM_STRING". That's the "scrambled, encrypted format" that leaves these files "useless and unplayable".___Awesome.
