Kathi Browne11,023Our #glassmed  explorers have been pushing Glass to the limit, discovering ways this hands-free technology might benefit healthcare. One such application is Glass as a teaching tool. Procedures and surgeries are being video recorded to use as demonstration tools or to show different perspectives and approaches.  Whether used in a remote medical education setting or as a hands-on teaching tool ... worn by the healthcare professional, student, or patient ... our explorers are excited to share with you the potential they realize and to answer some of your questions. Anyone can watch this live discussion by visiting the event page at the appointed time, and post comments here for us to see. If you would like to participate in the discussion LIVE, don't be shy.

Amanda Blain2,059,014*Real Bloggers Circle*This circle is made up of active ongoing bloggers. I personally went to each and every person's blog in this group... to make sure they are regularly creating content. These folks understand writing online, and how to blog. A few big names, but lots of smaller folks who have built a great audience too...  This circle took a long time to curate, if you are in it feel free to share it ♥If you are an active blogger (ie. meaning you post regularly to a public blog several times a week/month for many months/years ) please comment here with your blog and i'll check it out for the next round. #blogging #writer #sharedcircles  2012-10-09 18:23:44508420138

Alex Grossman24,072For my second Circle today for Follow Friday, here is my Respectful Politics Circle. This Circle is by request only and not for the faint of heart. It's filled with people who are passionate about politics and issues that impact society and come from across the political spectrum - the point is to have fun, learn and share. If you're interested in joining the discussions, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. No commitment to share your own posts, but it is preferred that you at least comment semi-regularly so as to encourage discussion. Just keep in mind that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful and civil manner. Let your passion fill you, but always temper it with manners, respect and politeness. Bullies will not be tolerated. The point is not to "win" but to learn. #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #politics  2012-07-20 15:10:0498901
Gideon Rosenblatt15,683Organizational ChangersThis is a group of people focused on organizational change. Many are consultants. Some are writers and public speakers. Many work with business. Some work with social change organizations. Some have expertise in strategy, some in marketing, some in other fields of expertise, but all have some interest in changing the way organizations work.Two requests: 1) If you're in this circle, and this isn't your thing, please let me know. It's still very much a work in progress. I try my best to be accurate in my assessments of people's interests, but I'm far from perfect. 2) If you know of someone (including yourself) who is into organizational change and is not in this circle, please let me know. I'm trying to keep this a useful circle for connecting with people who share an interest in this area. It's not a popularity contest. So please use your discretion. Thanks. 2012-07-19 01:21:231361101637

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
Rob Gordon25,033Business & Life Coaches, Advisors & Mentors.  This is a "shared circle" I last published a few months ago of people  on Google+ who are involved in mentoring, coaching or advising small businesses.  I am resharing this for two reasons.  First, I would like to know of other people who are involved in this as a profession who would like to be added to this circle, so please comment here if I should add you for the next time I publish.  Second, and maybe more important right now, I want to invite everyone in this circle to participate in our "Startup Chautauqua" next Saturday.  I described this event on this post: http://goo.gl/gTz2f where I probably got a bit too wordy, but basically we are planning a "multi-hangout" event for small business here, where participants will be able to go from hangout to hangout so we can get to know each other better and maybe find ways to help each other.  If you decide to be a hangout host you can either hold an informal "open house" or have a more organized presentation. We will be having two sessions of 20 minutes each.  I will be publishing more information about the format early next week.  This event is open to everyone so let me know if you would be interested in participating. 2012-06-23 19:07:065127414
Alister Macintyre7,220My copy, of this circle of people interested in our Economy and how come it is in a mess, is over 600 people, but I can only share 500.  Some day, I will split the people here into smaller circles of secondary interests, or maybe installments.2012-06-15 03:15:52501314

Meilani MacDonald2,935Small Business circle 1 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #1 of the 2, and #2 is next. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #sharedcircles #entrepreneur +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you2012-05-28 18:22:494491159
Jason Castellani2,554The largest Social Media Circle that Google+ allows me to share. If you quickly want access to a large group of Social Media Players and Gurus, tap into this list. #socialmedia #socialbusiness #socialmediastrategy2012-05-23 16:23:095007511
Matthew Trotter63Okay. I've been collecting shared #writer / #reader circles for the past week or so, and I thought I'd share our combined efforts. Of course, G+ only allows you to share 500 people at a time, so this isn't a complete list, but it's pretty substantial.I've had a blast talking to and getting to know all of you over this past week or so. I've laughed, learned, and loved—a lot. I hope this circle will provide you the same pleasure that it has provided me.And just because you don't see yourself doesn't mean you're not in my circle. Like I said, there's a 500 person sharing limit. Still, if there's any doubt, you can ask to be added. I'm more than happy to.Much writerly love and salud,MattP.S. Share this circle and share the love with all of these fantastic people. #writers #writing #writersgroup #sharedcircles #sharedpubliccircles #readers #readerscircle #books #ebooks #indieauthors2012-04-27 21:12:48500506
Robert Simpson9,855+Gideon Rosenblatt originally shared this #Circle of #Content people — #Writers and #People who create other types of #Media such as #Podcasts — but I saw it thanks to +Yifat Cohen. I have added a few more #Podcasters , namely the "Podfather" +Adam Curry, his co-host +John C Dvorak and +Todd Cochrane, author of the first book on #Podcasting .———————————————————————————————————Gideon Rosenblatt originally shared this post:Content PeopleThis circle is made up of people who create content - mostly writers, but also a few podcasters, broadcasters and other forms of content. It's getting harder and harder to differentiate medium these days, and many of these people span media. As usual, this circle is never complete.

They also have intelligent things to say and produce quality content. Most of them have less than 2000k followers with some exceptions you might recognize. Again, ALL deserve far more credit and ever larger following.

Why Women Shouldn’t Code

Women shouldn’t code.

Or at least we should not be teaching every little girl to code in the hope of attracting more women to the technology business that way. Of course if a woman is actually interested in code, she should be encouraged. But our current initiative to try to teach girls to code is misguided.

Yes, this goes against the diversity goals, because everyone knows that tech companies don’t have enough women on their boards, in their management, or on their staffs. But that isn’t necessarily cured by teaching more women to code. It’s cured by hiring more women and promoting them from other parts of the organization. The person who codes is not often the person who rises to CEO.

First of all, coding itself is a narrow function in which you write instructions to tell a computer what to do. People are fond of saying code isthe next ... more »

It's not rocket science to fix some of the things wrong with health care. Especially since one of the worst parts of the system is the customer experience. Any retailer can fix that. And I think I found a health care group that has. I just had my first appointment with OneMedicalGroup, a primary care chain that started in San Francisco and is now available in Boston, Los Angeles, Washington DC, New York, Chicago and -- mercifully -- Phoenix. OneMedical was founded by Tom X. Lee, an internal medicine doctor who actually listened to patients. Members of One Medical experience a different approach to doctor visits, designed around their needs. I have a feeling much of the experience is generated simply by better software -- for scheduling, for billing, and for charting.

OneMedical was founded by Tom X. Lee, an internal medicine doctor who actually listened to patients. Members of One Medical experience a different approach to doctor visits, designed around their needs. I have a feeling much of the experience is generated simply by better software -- for scheduling, for billing, and for charting. I can tell you this from my own first visit: I filled out NO paperwork. Not in advance, not online, not in the office before the appointment. Not only that, but my appointment started on time, and my labs were drawn at the same time.They'll be shared with me in an email, and I will always have them. My doctor also gave me a card with her email address on it, and told me she answers questions by email. She trained at Mayo and worked at Cigna and Hospice before finding a practice about which she could feel comfortable in Phoenix. She's vegan, like me, and has been to India. She believes in preventive medicine and in keeping people well. She practices integrative medicine, and that's another hallmark of OneMedical. During my visit for a physical examination, the doctor did the things doctors used to do before they got so busy: looked down my throat, into my ears, and at my body, palpate my abdomen, listen to my heart and lungs, test my reflexes, and take my blood pressure. She even weighed me herself. You'd be surprised how seldom this happens during primary care visits today. Or if it does happen, it's done by nurses and assistants. This doctor outsourced none of the work to a "physician extender." She also sat and talked to me and entered all my information in her EHR by herself. OneMedical appears to have written its own software, and I gather she finds it easy to use during a visit.I didn't find her typing distracting; it told me she was focused on me. The phlebotomist, who used to work at Sonora Quest, told me the difference between her last job and this one was "not like comparing apples to oranges, it was more like comparing apples to peas." Admittedly this is not health care for the impoverished. In my community, the offices are in GIlbert, Scottsdale, and on Camelback Road near the Biltmore in Phoenix. But the cost to join is only $100 a year, which is within reach of a middle class budget. For this you get good software, same day appointments, and longer visits. It's Uber, or Starbucks. OneMedical also offers employer health care, and in its other markets employers use these memberships as employee perks. The practice takes most insurance plans, including Medicare, and works with Dignity Health's network of hospitals and specialists. OneMedical is still kind of a startup, founded in 2007. So far it has raised $117 million in funding. That's very little when you consider they've opened 30 offices. They're obviously funding a lot of their growth from revenues. I hope the group is successful in Arizona. We sorely need better primary care experiences here. ___

Last night was difficult for me. It was the 50th Anniversary of ASU Gammage, the program that brings Broadway musical theatre and much more to Phoenix. My friend Jerry Appell was a big donor to Gammage, and was in the midst of helping plan for the evening when he died unexpectedly while I was in Mumbai. His children thoughtfully included me, for which I am grateful. But when I walked out onto the lawn of the beautiful Arizona Biltmore hotel for the event, on a night that was perfect in every way, I became immediately sad. It was a cocktail party that looked stunning but was clouded by loss for me. Not only Jerry, but my husband Gerry, with whom I lived in the BIltmore twenty years ago until he, too, passed. I perked up when I ran into an old friend, but then he told me not one, but both of his parents had dementia. He was clearly going through his own difficult situation.

Last night was difficult for me. It was the 50th Anniversary of ASU Gammage, the program that brings Broadway musical theatre and much more to Phoenix. My friend Jerry Appell was a big donor to Gammage, and was in the midst of helping plan for the evening when he died unexpectedly while I was in Mumbai. His children thoughtfully included me, for which I am grateful. But when I walked out onto the lawn of the beautiful Arizona Biltmore hotel for the event, on a night that was perfect in every way, I became immediately sad. It was a cocktail party that looked stunning but was clouded by loss for me. Not only Jerry, but my husband Gerry, with whom I lived in the BIltmore twenty years ago until he, too, passed. I perked up when I ran into an old friend, but then he told me not one, but both of his parents had dementia. He was clearly going through his own difficult situation. He was the gentleman on my right during the dinner. I have known him for a long time, and I'm really fond of him. On my left was a woman who informed me she was in the midst of moving to an independent living facility with a continuum of care. She didn't look like she "needed" to, but she told me she doesn't want to be a burden on her children. And then the program began. Between the half-amusing words of the emcee and the live auction of expensive trips and jewelry came the beautiful songs by Sutton Foster, someone Jerry loved and had underwritten for the entertainment. She sang "I Get a Kick Out of You," a Cole Porter song made famous by Billy Daniels, a lounge singer my dad used to manage. More loss. And then the gentleman on the right got drunk, and had to be put into a limo to go home. Clearly he, too, was having issues. That's when I called Uberx. This was the most complicated evening I think I have ever been to in my life. It was both beautiful and a reminder of loss, grief, and my own mortality. I had to write it down. ___

Through our patented data mining and matching technology, we have identified over 50 million Twitter users and their attributes as defined by 30,000 variables. So what does it mean? “The Oscars are often referred to as the Super Bowl for women because advertising spots start at $2 million,” Stat Social’s Audrey Hungerman told Cynopsis. “Samsung and American Express saw an increase in mentions on Sunday, with Twitter users loving Amex’s use of Mindy Kaling and Aretha Franklin. Dove launched the #SpeakBeautiful campaign with more than 40,000 mentions of the brand on Oscar day. The audience was mainly female (64 percent) and socially savvy; Twitter, Instagram and YouTube were among their favorite brands.” The top five advertisers were determined by Kantar Media. Check out the infographic at www.cynopsis.com. Twitter also recorded the top moments at the Oscars on Sunday, as host Neil Patrick Harris and A-list celebs took the stage. The biggest moments during the broadcast that generated peak use on Twitter, measured in Tweets per minute (TPM), include: - Lady Gaga (@LadyGaga) performs, is joined by Julie Andrews - Alejandro Iñárritu wins Best Picture for Birdman - Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) gives acceptance speech for winning Best Supporting Actress The most tweeted about nominees and performers were: 1.

Dear City of Phoenix, I've lived here for 46 years, brought my children up here, and fought to make this a world-class entrepreneurial community. I'm a futurist and a change agent. But things in the City of Phoenix police department are out of control, with everyone scurrying to cover their asses. I have a couple of suggestions, but bear with me until the end.

They've harassed me, stalked me, and ticketed me. I went to court and won because the ordinance I "violate" is far from clear. It applies to "dogs at large." My dogs are never "at large."

Dear City of Phoenix, I've lived here for 46 years, brought my children up here, and fought to make this a world-class entrepreneurial community. I'm a futurist and a change agent. But things in the City of Phoenix police department are out of control, with everyone scurrying to cover their asses. I have a couple of suggestions, but bear with me until the end. I'm a dangerous outlaw according to City of Phoenix police, who have had somewhat of a vendetta against me for a couple of years for walking my dogs off leash in the early mornings at a couple of city parks. They've harassed me, stalked me, and ticketed me. I went to court and won because the ordinance I "violate" is far from clear. It applies to "dogs at large." My dogs are never "at large." I walk them off leash because when I had my hip replacement the surgeon told me I should let them pull me around anymore. I've got back issues from a lifetime of running, and had scoliosis from birth. But I'm not an idiot. My dogs are on electronic collars, they're AKC Canine Good Citizens, and they are always under voice control and within easy reach of me. When asked, I leash them. But every once in a while, some law-abiding dude calls the police on me and the three other older women who walk with me This is the second park in the same precinct at which this has happened, and the same "Community Relations Officer," is always the one who warns me, tickets me, and indeed stalks me both undercover and in uniform. He has a thick file on me. He's very proud of it; I've seen it. Yesterday things hit a tipping point: another woman and I had scheduled a meeting with the Commander of the Precinct and the officer. Before the meeting, we noticed that not one, not two, but three uniformed bicycle cops were prowling the park. That never happened before; clearly they were doing their meeting prep. In the meeting, the Commander told us we interpreted the ordinance wrong, and that what the prosecutor did wasn't his business. "If you want to keep taking your chances with the prosecutors, that's your business," he said. Every time I talk to those people they interpret the ordinance with less and less leeway. And one City department doesn't care what the other does. This morning, walking my dogs on leash, I once again saw many other dogs in the park without leashes. For me this is a dilemma: do I really call the police on them so the law is enforced for all? Or do I continue to allow myself to be singled out, harassed, and stalked. I realize this is a complicated problem. So let me suggest some potentially more progressive solutions: 1)require dog owners to take personal responsibility for their dogs by requiring insurance of dog owners, which is what they do in Europe, or 2)declare off leash hours in parks at posted times, like they do in New York, where 9PM-9AM is off leash every evening and the population expects it. 3)Use the resources of the police department to deal with real crime, rather than trivial complaints of people who have nothing better to do than repeatedly call the police or the mayor. Anything is better than what we have now, which is tiny dog parks crowded with untrained and unregistered dogs to which responsible dog owners wouldn't take their pets, or the unsatisfying walk on a leash (which for me is dangerous). Anybody else got a solution? ___

Why Women Shouldn’t Code

Women shouldn’t code.

Or at least we should not be teaching every little girl to code in the hope of attracting more women to the technology business that way. Of course if a woman is actually interested in code, she should be encouraged. But our current initiative to try to teach girls to code is misguided.

Yes, this goes against the diversity goals, because everyone knows that tech companies don’t have enough women on their boards, in their management, or on their staffs. But that isn’t necessarily cured by teaching more women to code. It’s cured by hiring more women and promoting them from other parts of the organization. The person who codes is not often the person who rises to CEO.

Yes, this goes against the diversity goals, because everyone knows that tech companies don’t have enough women on their boards, in their management, or on their staffs. But that isn’t necessarily cured by teaching more women to code. It’s cured by hiring more women and promoting them from other parts of the organization. The person who codes is not often the person who rises to CEO.

First of all, coding itself is a narrow function in which you write instructions to tell a computer what to do. People are fond of saying code is the next language, and that’s all fine, but there’s a difference between language and syntax. Coding is syntax. It is finely detailed work in a binary world, and it requires both attention to detail. When you write a line of code, you have to close the parentheses and make sure you put in the semi-colon or the code won’t run. It requires enormous concentration, and it is exacting. It’s often done in a dark room with no interruptions. But the most important people in the company don’t write the code, they tell the coders what to write. Coders don’t make the big decisions.
Women don’t seem to want to code. They don’t choose it as a career, despite all the job openings and the high pay. In general, women are more intuitive and more perceptive. There’s mountains of research about that. They’re also more nurturing. That’s hard-coded into them for the preservation of the race. I’ve got grandchildren of both sexes and I have about sixteen data points from which I draw this conclusion. But PET scans of the brain have led scientists to similar conclusions. The girls are not drawn to the same pursuits the boys are, no matter how hard you try to bring them up with gender equality.
Scientists working at Johns Hopkins University, recently reporting in the “Cerebral Cortex” scholarly journal (1), have discovered that there is a brain region in the cortex, called inferior-parietal lobule (IPL) which is significantly larger in men than in women. This area is bilateral and is located just above the level of the ears (parietal cortex).
Furthermore, the left side IPL is larger in men than the right side. In women, this asymmetry is reversed, although the difference between left and right sides is not so large as in men, noted the JHU researchers. This is the same area which was shown to be larger in the brain of Albert Einstein, as well as in other physicists and mathematicians. So, it seems that IPL’s size correlates highly with mental mathematical abilities. Morphological brain differences in intellectual skills were suspected to exist by neurologists since the times of phrenology (although this was proved to be a wrong approach), in the 19th century. The end of the 20th century has witnessed the first scientific proofs for that.
3. There will be plenty of coders in the future. We happen to be in a period in which software rules, or as somebody once said, “software is eating the world.” But we’re fighting the last war here; we will eventually do the same thing with coders that we did with every other occupation where we identified a shortage: create a glut. We’ve done it with doctors, physical therapists, nail technicians, and lawyers. And then who will make the robots?

4. The difference between good and bad code is like the difference between grammar and writing. Writing requires much more than just a knowledge of grammar and syntax. It also requires organization, imagination, creativity and experience. The analogue to writing in software development, IMHO, isn’t coding per se, it is system architecture and user interface.

So here’s what I propose. Stop trying to coerce women to code. Instead, hire them for the talents they have that tech companies sorely need: marketing, leadership, human capital attraction, and negotiating skills. And then don’t sideline them by calling those “staff” instead of “line” functions. Instead, recognize that a product does not make a company, and that even in a company whose product is software, many other skills are required at which women have always excelled.

In other words, stop forcing women into the male mold and accept them for who they are.

Seeing the movie "Selma" reminded me of several things: 1)The black perspective on what happened is different from my own; the movie spent a lot of time talking about politics among the civil rights groups and disagreement about methodology. While I remember that, it doesn't define the movement for me; 2)the black perspective doesn't emphasize enough until the very end the sympathetic whites, an entire generation of Boomers and people my age who marched with them, including my father who desegregated Las Vegas Hotels; 3)how little we have gained since then, despite the Voting Rights Act. At present, the Act is threatened and gutted by lack of enforcement, and as for the police -- it's pretty much the same as it ever was. All of Selma reminded me of Ferguson. As a society, we move awfully slowly forward, if at all.

I spent the day yesterday at CES. The theme of this year's CES should be "where do we really need the internet?" as we have seen enough connected devices to convince us that the internet can be put anywhere -- on refrigerators, watches, toothbrushes--but do we WANT to put it everywhere. Never mind the security issues; many of these devices just don't have a strong enough use case to engage the attention of a busy person who can't spend most of the day as a network admin. CES is overrun with marketers, brands, and media companies as usual. However, most of them aren't in consumer electronics. They are in every field, and they come to learn the things they have to do to get consumer attention. I was almost astounded to discover how many publisher partners of ZEDO, the ad tech company I work with, attend CES. And also how many ad tech companies themselves, especially if they are... more »

I spent the day yesterday at CES. The theme of this year's CES should be "where do we really need the internet?" as we have seen enough connected devices to convince us that the internet can be put anywhere -- on refrigerators, watches, toothbrushes--but do we WANT to put it everywhere. Never mind the security issues; many of these devices just don't have a strong enough use case to engage the attention of a busy person who can't spend most of the day as a network admin. CES is overrun with marketers, brands, and media companies as usual. However, most of them aren't in consumer electronics. They are in every field, and they come to learn the things they have to do to get consumer attention. I was almost astounded to discover how many publisher partners of ZEDO, the ad tech company I work with, attend CES. And also how many ad tech companies themselves, especially if they are concerned with content marketing and native ads. Or mobile. Or video. And that's ALL advertisers are concerned with. Hence, exhibits by players like TubeMogul and Taboola, who would have never been at CES five years ago. Frankly, I didn't expect to see anything that really turned me on, although it was wonderful to see how far 3D Printing has come in the past year, now accessible to many more people and using different materials. MakerBot introduced some new materials at CES that can simulate limestone, wood, and metal. You can see where this might lead. I donated my 3 D printer to SySTEM Schools because after I figured it out, there were only a limited number of plastic toys I wanted to make, but now I see greatly increased use cases. I also loved the partnership with Martha Steward to produce 3D printed dishes, and there were some cool 3D printed dresses and shoes. Another highlight for me was the partnership Misfit has done with Swarovski. You may or may not have seen the Misfit Shine activity tracker that hangs around my neck on a necklace, but now there will be a ton of bracelets and necklaces with Swarovski crystals to hold my Shine so I can track my activity at all the black tie events I don't go to anymore. No, seriously. Misfit had the only tracking devices that were truly beautiful at CES; everyone else was better than last year, but hardly beautiful. Runner up to Misfit? A company formerly from the Netherlands called Burg. They have a full roster of smart watches. Which raises another question, "what do we need a smart watch to do?" Most of them do all the same things, give or take one or two: steps, sleep, 02, and heart rate. Much else and your watch would have to get FDA approval. The cars kicked butt, though. Car technology is evolving so quickly that I no longer buy cars for engines or looks, but for technology. And technology now gives cars the "coolness" factor that big engines used to convey. There are so many assistive devices for the driver in new cars and I can't see how we will ever get into accidents in the future; one reporter tried to crash a VW into a wall and the car braked automatically, overriding his accelerator. And now for the thing that really made the trip worthwhile (other than seeing all the friends I ran into there); the nature of reality. As soon as I stepped into the Sands, I was drawn to the Augmented Reality Pavilion, where two different companies were demonstrating glasses that Oculus Rift probably aims to be. One of the companies demonstrated virtual reality, which is unconnected to the physical world, and is mainly for gamers or, perhaps parents with kids that need entertaining on long rides. The other one demonstrated augmented reality, which is putting on a pair of glasses that will allow you to see how, for instance, a room would look with different kinds of furniture. The augmented reality company is already selling to the government (of course). Consumer product coming this spring. These unedited thoughts spilled out for me after yesterday. They will appear elsewhere with more clarity, I promise. ___

Thanks, @marco, for pointing this out.Unfortunately, this seems to be true, I've been trying to get rid of old Apple calendars in iCal and can't, I can't use iTunes and iPhoto anymore at all, and iCloud sync doesn't work. There isn't one Apple app that works as well as its competitors, and the OS itself doesn't work well anymore either. I'm glad it's not just pilot error all the time. http://goo.gl/GUaFos

Why I No Longer Want to Move to the Bay Area In 1999, during the height of the dot com bubble, Garage Technology Ventures funded the short-lived Opnix, one of the first Stealthmode Partners companies. Ed and I went gleefully up to the Bay Area for the pitch meeting, and that's where we met Bill Reichert, who later became a good friend, and Bill Joy and Guy Kawasaki. Although Opnix fell victim to the inexperience of its 20-something founders, running through $8m in a single year trying to build a data center that later formed the crux of Limelight Networks (where I met Bill Rinehart), I was in love with the process of entrepreneurship and the venture capital mystique. Along the way, I also fell in love with Blogger, and later Typepad and Wordpress. I rediscovered myself as a writer, as well as a mentor and coach.

Along the way, I also fell in love with Blogger, and later Typepad and Wordpress. I rediscovered myself as a writer, as well as a mentor and coach. Those were happy times in my relationship with the Valley. We all struggled through the bust, and I got involved in Web 2.0 at the very beginning, with Friendster, Ryze, and MySpace. I loved the social aspect of it, and by 2005 I owned a house in Half Moon Bay, as well as my home in Phoenix. I spent summers and vacations in HMB, and there I started a geek meetup group and made amazing friends. The startups of 2005-2010 we incredible: Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Foursquare. They all felt like they were helping the world and making it better. In 2010, after the real estate crisis, I sold the house in Half Moon Bay, but I maintained my strong relationship with the Bay Area -- so much so that I considered moving back up there this year. And then, during my "due diligence, " several things happened: 1)close friends of mine, like Marcus Nelson, had negative investor experiences and left the area, choosing family over entrepreneurship. 2)people I met when they were barely out of school, like Mark Zuckerberg, became billionaires and began to inhabit a separate space 3)new startups addressed smaller and smaller niches, suitable only for people with almost infinite disposable income 4)the sharing economy produced the rental economy 5)the new generation of tech companies created only 1099 jobs 6)long time inhabitants of San Francisco and New York were forced out by arrivistes and rising real estate prices, gentrification and greedy developers 7) founders got liquid before their exits, producing rich boys whose companies could still fail 8) the vibe changed from "we're all in this together" to the 1% vs. the rest of us. 9) to live in this rarified atmosphere would drastically reduce my quality of life 10) Phoenix began to seem more like the real world, and San Francisco something of a fairy story or a movie plot. And then there are the themes we all know about: lack of diversity, misogny, greed, and envy. So I've fallen out of love with the Bay Area, and my New Year's Resolution? Choose love. ___
