Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117

Matthew J Price4,908Here it is again, my Accelerated Thinkers circle.  These futurists, authors, transhumanists, nerds, experts, pages, and all around thought leaders account for the vast majority of the good news I receive from G+.  Whatever I share that I didn't find in my RSS feed came from these ladies and gentlemen.If you followed nothing but these 70 people, you would have a pretty solid idea of what sort of craziness is coming down the pipe.I owe them a great debt for the thoughtfulness of their content curation and the added value of their voices. Thank you!I no longer spend any meaningful amount of time searching for new people to add to this circle.  If you know someone that belongs here please leave a comment nominating them (or yourself) or send me a message.  If you know someone with educated opinions about the future who posts future relevant thoughts and news the majority of the time, that's what this circle is about. #ScienceSunday   #Transhumanism   #Futurism   #AcceleratedChange  2012-10-22 00:32:2970317

The Nakasendo is an old road in Japan that connects Kyoto to Tokyo. It was once a major foot highway, but today small sections retain some of its historical feel. In October I walked along 5 short sections of it, staying at traditional inns along the way. My guide was +Craig Mod who is fluent in Japanese, his ease with the language made the trip possible. And he is a great travel companion (he took the picture of me in the onsen). The Nakasendo is full of history and many artists and poets over the centuries have travelled along it, including Basho, the haiku genius. We met a lot of characters, too, and thoroughly enjoyed the exquisite details that make up this country.

Current Critical Uncertainties

About 4 years I made a list of critical uncertainties for me. Things I had no clue which way they would go in the future. Would you add any?

What, if anything, will slow down China?
Possible answers: internal revolution, population decline, environmental realities, absolutely nothing.

What information will people not share with each other?
They share medical records, purchases, dreams, sex fantasies. What about their taxes?



How many devices do we want to carry?
Ten, two, one, or none?

What will modernize Islam?
Will Islam's "Reformation" be political, theological, violent, or glacial?

How much bandwidth is enough?
We have enough pixels in a camera, enough hi-fi in our music, how many gigs/s before we no longer think about it?

Will we trust governments orcorporations ... more »

Will we trust governments or corporations more?
Who do we want to run our education, libraries, police, press, courts, licenses, and communication networks?

What is the "natural" price of a book, movie, or song?
Once distribution and production costs fall or disappear, what will we charge for creations?

Will (or where will) the future ever become cool again? 
Optimism is a necessary ingredient for innovation. What will renew it?

How bad are the harmful effects of surfing the net?
Are the bad effects of short attention temporary, inconvenient, or fatal?

Is nuclear fusion (synthetic solar) economically possible?
 Making energy like the sun does might too cheap to meter or as uneconomical as a perpetual motion machine.

When will Moore's Law stop?
At least 90% of our progress today hinges on cheaper, faster computation every year. Stop one, stop the other.___

The far south of China borders Burma, Laos, and Vietnam. Here Chinese culture mixes with upland minority tribes and south-east Asian traditions. This part of China is a rugged land of rubber, tea and bananas. I spent a long week there riding along the border (see my recommendation for a guide below). A highlight was the stunning valleys of rice terraces near Yuanyang, the most spectacular in world (and I've seen a lot of terraces). The climate in December was idyllic, the roads not bad, and other tourists rare. I need to repeat my standard caveat that my photos here are not representative of what is seen. It is a highly selective, distilled, edited version of reality which emphasizes traditional arts and practices that are disappearing fast. These are authentic glimpses, but mere traces in a fiercely modernizing territory.

There seems to be a new model of crowdfunding emerging. As reward, the fans fund in order to have a say in the shape and features of the product. The hugest crowdfunded campaign so far -- $63 million for a game -- is doing just this:

"As the game has evolved from its initial vision, Roberts has used the community of more than half a million fans he has built up around Star Citizen as a sounding board for potential features in the game, getting future users to vote on the elements that they want to see incorporated into spaceships or the overall game environment. As it says on the website:

Wikipedia is the defining icon of the digital age. But it does not work the way most people think it does. This article and the book it is based on provides a glimpse into its actual bureaucratic organization.

The other side of Japan is full-tilt modern, and at times, overloaded with color. The Japanese also love uniforms; every role has a uniform. I tried to capture some of the uniforms on the streets and trains, especially the cosplay uniforms in Harajuku, Tokyo. I found maximum color in Japanese shows on TV, in their vending machines, and at a crazy, bonkers, over-the-top show in Tokyo called the Robot Restaurant. Turn up that color dial to 11 !

This is one of the better talks on coming disruptions in the next ten years. Making big broad predictions as Fred Wilson does is very hard to do well. (I know because I try to do this myself.) I really like Fred's framework, which I agree with 100%. His comments at the end are probably the most interesting, because they are not so obvious.  His talk was done almost a year ago, which is even more impressive.

I just returned from my first trip to Vietnam. My wife Giamin and I spent a week there (I spent some extra days) exploring the north of this populous country. There is a lot to see, but be warned that, as usual, these images do not represent the country. My photos are romantic, stereotyped and biased; most of the country is a vast construction site as the Vietnamese modernize. But my mission is to capture the last remnants of fast disappearing traditions, and so with that caveat I present this selection. Enjoy.

The Nakasendo is an old road in Japan that connects Kyoto to Tokyo. It was once a major foot highway, but today small sections retain some of its historical feel. In October I walked along 5 short sections of it, staying at traditional inns along the way. My guide was +Craig Mod who is fluent in Japanese, his ease with the language made the trip possible. And he is a great travel companion (he took the picture of me in the onsen). The Nakasendo is full of history and many artists and poets over the centuries have travelled along it, including Basho, the haiku genius. We met a lot of characters, too, and thoroughly enjoyed the exquisite details that make up this country.

Here's a direct link to my Wired article about the coming reality of artificial intelligence, or as I like to call it, artificial smartness. I make the case that AI (AS) will be a cloud service; you'll buy as much IQ as you want. And that since it will be a cloud service, AI will obey network effects, meaning we'll have only 2 or 3 very large AI companies.  More details here:

Portland is so hip, they almost did not invite me. But at the recent XOXO conference in Portland, I talked about the common dilemmas that face creators, and how I have dealt with them in 50 years of making stuff. After a quick recap of my creative journey, I get to a 1,000 true fans, and making new definitions of success. It's different than most talks I do. A little more personal, and a lot more artistic. And, yes, I talk about the Cool Tools book --- which you really should have!

I've been talking about mesh networks for  two decades, and finally one is beginning to develop around smart phones. Besides their use by dissenters, a phone-based mesh network would be useful in the event of the collapse of the cell phone network or internet blackout.

Mesh Networks Resist Centralized Control...

Hong Kong pro-democracy protestors are using bluetooth mesh networks to communicate, bypassing cellular networks and Wi-Fi. That means there is no single point of control; no single point of failure. This is what makes mesh architectures difficult to suppress -- and why they are the future of democratic communications.     #MeshNetworks    #democracy  ___I've been talking about mesh networks for  two decades, and finally one is beginning to develop around smart phones.

Computational X is the recipe for much of the future. Take a subject and then computationalize it. One of the most difficult areas to have machines do is pure mathematics. Steven Wolfram outlines a plan whereby he thinks we can computationalize pure math. His proposal is long but readable even to non-mathematicians. His plan is based on his own Mathematica and Woflram Alpha and will work if he open sources it. In any case this is a good read of a grand idea.
