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 18:49:364857231117CC G+

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 00:32:2970317CC G+

Alexander Becker10,021As part of a pattern-analyzing experiment, and to examine the origins of "relevance," I am sharing my Top 99 circleSome observations —Robert Scoble is in my top 99, for no apparent reasons other than I circled him. "Relevance" does seem to come for people or pages I never interacted with apart from leaving the occasional +1. Also, mentioning someone repeatedly seems to increase relevance, for me, e.g. +Project Glass . Interestingly, mentioning without even having visited the Project Glass page is enough to make it relevant for me. While this makes sense, since I've written about it repeatedly, I can see a strong vector to game relevance this way.+Moritz Tolxdorff  and +Amanda Blain  deserve the credit for this endeavour —Want to create your own?► Click circles on the tab on the right► Make sure relevance is selected (default)► Select the top 99 users. (Drag a box around them)► Drag the whole group to "drop here to create new circle"► The new circle will open up. Make sure its 99 and adjust it if needed► Share it and use the hashtag #top99  and #sharedcircles   #top99   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  +Shared Circles on G+    +Nothing but Circles   +Public Circles   +CircleCount  +Full Circle If you got notified you are one of the 99 :-)2012-07-26 08:30:569934029CC G+

Bikes on the road should have different rules. Really. They should be allowed to have rolling "stops" for one. The reason most bicyclist don't follow the rules for cars is that they are stupid for bikes. We need traffic rules that work for bicycles, so those laws can be followed and enforced. If they aren't changed the laws will just continued to be broken, which helps no one.

Pedestrians, cars and bikes would be better off if we had appropriate rules for bikes. Good argument here:

real-world product placement

This article makes a pretty good case for the coming existence of "real-world product placement"  -- getting paid for influencing others and technology that makes it easy to act on that influence.

Are those real robots? Nope, but you want them to be. This short clip by Kevin Margo (THOR) is awesome for several reasons. One is that I believe the animation was rendered in real time on a VFX accelerated by NVIDIA's VCA hardware. The other is the fantastic emotion and even morality embedded in the machines,and third is the pitch-perfect simulation.  Enjoy!

Why a "cloudbook" is better than an iPad in schools. Insightful article in the Atalantic. Excerpt:

"And as much as students liked to annotate and read on the iPad, the Chromebook's keyboard was a greater perk — especially since the new Common Core online testing will require a keyboard.

Another important finding came from the technology support department: It was far easier to manage almost 200 Chromebooks than the same number of iPads. Since all the Chromebook files live in an online “cloud,” students could be up and running in seconds on a new device if their machine broke. And apps could be pushed to all of the devices with just a few mouse clicks.

I've been building my own workshop, but it is not as cool as this guys. I love his DIY sensibility.

There seems to be two styles of workshops (and kitchens):
1) Put everything away
2) Put everything out where you can see it

This guy is of the second type.

Ten years ago I co-founded an initiative to find and catalog all the remaining undiscovered species on Earth. One component of that process was an idea of E. O. Wilson to conduct local bio-blitzes, like the one conducted this year in the Gold Gate Recreation Area. A team of biologists will intensely inspect a small area to map all species they find in a day or so. They did not discover any new-to-science species, but did discover  many species they didn't know were local -- a common result of a bioblitz. http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2014/05/07/san-franciscos-parks-scoured-in-wildlife-inventory/

This is a very good, very short piece on "generative systems" like -- Minecraft. When Minecraft came out (my son a very early player) it seemed very geeky, and boyish. I would have never guessed I'd see 8-year old girls playing it on an iphone. Minecraft is bigger than it looks.

Technoliteracy
I wrote up some essential skills for tomorrow. What am I missing?

• Anything you buy, you must maintain. A purchase is just the beginning.  You can expect to devote as much money/time in maintaining a technology as you did in acquiring and installing it.
• Acquire at the last possible moment. Technologies improve so fast you should postpone getting anything until 5 minutes before you need it. Then accept the fact that anything you buy is already obsolete.
• You will be newbie forever. Get good at the beginner mode: learning new programs, asking dumb questions, making stupid mistakes, soliciting help. 
• Often learning a new tool requires unlearning old ones. The habits of using a land line phone don't work in email or cell phone. The habits of email don't work in twitter. The habits of twitter won't work in what is next. Try to leavethe old h... more »

Technoliteracy
I wrote up some essential skills for tomorrow. What am I missing?

• Anything you buy, you must maintain. A purchase is just the beginning.  You can expect to devote as much money/time in maintaining a technology as you did in acquiring and installing it.
• Acquire at the last possible moment. Technologies improve so fast you should postpone getting anything until 5 minutes before you need it. Then accept the fact that anything you buy is already obsolete.
• You will be newbie forever. Get good at the beginner mode: learning new programs, asking dumb questions, making stupid mistakes, soliciting help. 
• Often learning a new tool requires unlearning old ones. The habits of using a land line phone don't work in email or cell phone. The habits of email don't work in twitter. The habits of twitter won't work in what is next. Try to leave the old habits behind when venturing to new forms.
• Take sabbaticals. Once a week let go of your tools. Once a year take a break from the whole system gracefully. Once in your life step back completely and turn everything off until your soul says to turn it back on. You'll return with renewed enthusiasm and perspective.
• Keep it easy to switch. You will leave the tool you are using today at some time in the near future. How easy will it be to leave? If leaving forces you to leave all your data behind, or to learn a new way of typing, or to surrender four other technologies you were still using, then maybe this is not the best one to start.

• Quality is not always related to price. Sometimes expensive gear is better, sometimes the least expensive is best for you. Most folks don’t ever use the premium features they paid for. And 95% of most tools are abandonded before they wear out. Quality is related to your personal use.
• For every expert opinion that you find online, seek out an equal but opposite expert opinion somewhere else. Don’t rely on  raves only.  If you have not heard any negatives, you have not yet found all the opinions.
• You don’t need to understand the mechanics of a new technology before you start using it.  The best way to understand it is to use it.
• Tools are metaphors that shape how you think. What embedded assumptions does the new tool make? Does it assume right-handedness, or literacy, or a password, or a place to throw it away? Where the defaults are set can reflect a tool's bias. You should ask yourself what does this technology assume?
• What other thing do you give up? This one has taken me a long time to learn. The only way to take up a new technology is to reduce an old one in my life already. Social media, for instance, must come at the expense of something else I was doing -- even if it just daydreaming.
• Every new technology will bite back. The more powerful its gifts, the more powerfully it can be abused. Look for its costs.
• Risks are relative. The risks of a new technology can’t be evaluation alone; they must be compared to the risks of the older technology, or no technology. For instance the risks of a new dental MRI must be compared to the risks of an old x-ray, or to the risks of no x-ray and getting cavities. The costs of the new must be compared to costs of the old. 
• Be suspicious of any technology that requires walls to prevent access. If you can’t fix it, modify it or hack it yourself, that is a  sign.
* Teaching others what you learn (like posting solutions to things you figured out) is the best way to keep learning about a technology yourself.
• The proper response to a stupid technology is not to outlaw it but to make a better one yourself, just as the proper response to a stupid idea is not to outlaw it but to replace it with a better idea.
• Nobody has any idea of what a new invention will really be good for, including its inventors. You can’t evaluate new things by merely thinking about them. To evaluate, try it, then think.
• The second order effects of technology usually only arrive when everyone has one, or it is present everywhere. Drones are cool, but what if everyone has one hovering over their shoulder?
• The older the technology, the more likely it will continue to be useful. It may need to find a more limited new job, but don’t dismiss it. Some of the best new things are old things re-imagined.
• Find the minimum amount of technology that will maximize your options.___

Born Digital
Do you have a story to add to my small collection of examples of being born digital? I ran this on my blog a couple of years ago and it is time to update it:

*
My friend had a young daughter under 5 years old. Like many other families these days, they have no tv in their house, but do have has lots of computers. With his daughter he was visiting another family who had a tv, which was on in another room. The daughter went up to the tv, hunting around it, and looked behind the tv. "Where's the mouse?" she asked.



*
Another friend had a barely-speaking toddler take over his iPad. She could paint and handle complicated tasks on apps with ease and grace almost before she could walk. It is now sort of her iPad. One day he printed out a high resolution image on photo paper and left it on the coffee table. He noticed his toddler come up toup and ... more »

Another friend had a barely-speaking toddler take over his iPad. She could paint and handle complicated tasks on apps with ease and grace almost before she could walk. It is now sort of her iPad. One day he printed out a high resolution image on photo paper and left it on the coffee table. He noticed his toddler come up to up and try to unpinch the photo to make it larger, like you do on an iPad. She tried it a few times, without success, and looked over to him and said "broken."

* 
A 21-year old reader told me this one. She sometimes works at a theme park. Once a little girl took her picture, and after she did, she told the park worker, "But it's not a real camera, it doesn't have the picture on the back".

*
Another reader had this story. Her son had access to a computer starting at the age of 2. Once while they were shopping in a grocery store, she paused to find a label on a product. "Just click on it," her son suggested.

*
Yet another acquaintance told me this story. He has a son about 8 years old. They were talking about the old days, and the fact that when my friend was growing up they did not have computers. This fact was perplexing news to his son. His son asks, "But how did you get onto the internet before computers?"

I take two lessons from the mouth of babes: if something is not interactive, with mouse or gestures, it is broken. And, the internet is not about computers or devices; it is something mythic, something much larger; it is about humanity.___

It's a long shot, but worth doing on Independence Day. This crowdfunded Mayday campaign is a kungfu move to fight the outsized role of money is US politics with a well-placed bit of money to counter it. I've pledge $100 to give this experiment a chance. Might work. If it does, I'd be happy to have helped. Worse thing that could happen is that PAC money continues to buy greater influence over ordinary citizens. Happy 4th of July!

Hey Japanese fans!

I just received the new Japanese translation of my book What Technology Wants. Here I am cuddling this wonderful artifact. This version is beautifully printed. Very compact, very clean, very smart. I love the cover design. Very modern typography with brilliant orange spine. It is the kind of cover I would have designed. Inside, the pages are dense with info. The entire production is well done. I also trust the translation by Katsura Hattori, who worked long and hard on it for several years. I am really proud of this edition. I hope to visit Japan later this year and talk about the book.

If you read Japanese, it is available here:

Hey Chinese fans!  My 15-year old  New Economy book has just been translated into Chinese and it makes total sense in China right now: http://item.jd.com/11482373.html  

While reviewing the 1998 text in preparation for translation, I discovered that there was nothing that I said 15 years ago in the book that I wanted to change. A few businesses I mentioned were gone, but all of my points and arguments about the shape of the new economy seemed to me to be as valid as ever. And in China, the book is extremely helpful for the many startups trying to figure out what works in the digital age.

I'm just back from Tibet. The color I associate with Tibet is brown. Brown earth, wide soil plains, mud walls, soggy dirt roads, cold dark drafty brown homes, more mud, brown sheep, yaks, and horses, and brown rocky mountains. But during their brief summer months, a lush green blossoms, and to offset the universal brown of the rest of the year, the Tibetans create the brightest, boldest, most gaudily brilliant anti-browns they can find and cover themselves and their interior spaces with this riot of color. But don't be fooled by this album. This circus is but a speck in the great vast expanse of colorless brown that the empty country of Tibet is. Tibet doesn't really look like this, on average. Rather this collection of images I recently tooks is a distillation of dazzling highlights; the sparkle bouncing off of the summer sun. It's how I'd like to remember it.

Transference is a phenomenon characterized by unconscious redirection of feelings from one person to another. One definition of transference is "the inappropriate repetition in the present of a relationship that was important in a person's childhood." Another definition is "the redirection of feelings and desires and especially of those unconsciously retained from childhood toward a new object"

I just saw the Hubble Deepfield Ultraviolet images. They are very disturbing. 

10,000 vibrant galaxies in only this tiny spot of blackness between stars. (9 square arc minutes. Hold a pencil eraser at arm's length -- that much coverage.) Times what you see by a ten million for the whole sky.

This short piece is the funniest thing I've read in a long time, in part because I've pronounced many of same things in my talks, and even today I believe half of them will happen. The other 2/3 are, of course, utter nonsense. 

Brilliant, short, fun. Sample:

What if I told you that in the future you’d be cutting some radishes and your knife would slip and cut your finger and then it would apologize to you? Knives will be able to say sorry in up to five languages. And don’t feel sorry for that dishwasher. It’s also able to communicate with more successful dishwashers, either in your zip code or halfway around the world. If forks are getting cleaner in Glasgow, it can learn from a dishwasher there. And your dishwasher can learn other skills, too. What if I told you in just six weeks, it could become an effective mass dumpling steamer with over 127,000 followers onTwitter... more »

In the coming years, the main events on the web/internet will be in Asia, Africa, and the "rest of the world" and not in the US and Europe. That's the message of this awesome slide deck, which I agree with.  I believe it. It matches up with my experience in Asia. And it is extremely well crafted. This slide show is one of the best trend presentations I've seen. I wish I had done it.

Among the many new pleasures I discovered at the pre-opening of the Long Now Foundation's library bar, called The Interval,  was Brian Eno's glorious artwork. It's a video screen. Stationed on the wall behind the bar, it at first seemed just another finely crafted detail, like the salon's chime table or two-story book shelves. But I discovered this little screen engendered three levels of appreciation.

1) It's beautiful. Gemstone brilliant, aptly diamond in shape, glowing even in the bright industrial lights of the bar. It shines like a stained glass window looking into a more colorful world. It seems smaller than it is. Perfect proportions, 4 golden rectangles making a diamond in radial symmetry.

It seems smaller than it is. Perfect proportions, 4 golden rectangles making a diamond in radial symmetry.

Then while you rest at the bar, maybe chatting merrily while cruising on some alcohol, you become aware that this gemstone is changing. My companion wonders, is it just me? Or the alcohol? I think that perfect image has shifted ...

2) It is the sssssslllllooooooooowwwwwww double take. It evolves! And the new image may even be sweeter than before.  Ooooo, that's nice.

Most folks will get to that level of appreciation on their own. But the third level requires a bit of additional nudge. Hopefully the bar tenders will be trained to supply this bit, or perhaps the members of the Interval will be trained to initiate newbies, or perhaps there is a small plaque somewhere with text that notifies the patrons who get to the second level that there is a third level of appreciation:

3) That image that bewitched you: no one will ever see it again. It was generated for this moment, and will never be repeated in anyone's lifetime. You may have been the only person to ever see it. Better pay attention to what happens next.

These three levels of appreciation reflect three senses of time that emanate from this artwork. The first is the momentary flash of instant appreciation, the absolute present. The second comes from returning our attention in a loop, a longer study, employing a sense of past and future -- what we call change. The third appreciation is transcendent, of the eternal. Aha!

All from such a tiny box! When the Interval opens soon -- located in Ft Mason, San Francisco, right next store to the legendary Greens restaurant -- be sure to stop in.

[The photo shows a chain of humans passing books up the spiral staircase to fill the upstair shelves with the Manual of Civilization books. Brian Eno's diamond is on the far wall and is too bright for my camera to catch its colors.]___

To create a long-term ongoing online community takes much time and effort. One of the highest quality online communities I am aware of is Metafilter. In a post about why they have to cut some jobs, the founder mentions in passing the degree to which they cultivate the conversation. It's pretty intense:

"There’s a chance a bad post on the front page might sit for an hour on a weekend when people are out and about instead of being deleted more quickly. In the future, borderline comments that derail a conversation and require multiple moderators nursing a thread along for days on end may instead end more often in a deleted comment. We may give users a night off more often if they’re being problematic in multiple places in a short period of time instead of emailing individual users asking them what’s up and waiting to see if they dial things back."

Of course news is moving to digital, and in the near future little news will be printed on paper. But the transition is VERY difficult. Every paper is struggling, and many online news services are struggling in a different way. So this leaked white paper from the New York Times internal evaluation turns out to be one of the most astute and intelligent surveys of what does and does not work in digital news so far. Everyone in the digital media biz should read it.

Bikes on the road should have different rules. Really. They should be allowed to have rolling "stops" for one. The reason most bicyclist don't follow the rules for cars is that they are stupid for bikes. We need traffic rules that work for bicycles, so those laws can be followed and enforced. If they aren't changed the laws will just continued to be broken, which helps no one.

Pedestrians, cars and bikes would be better off if we had appropriate rules for bikes. Good argument here:

I've ridden my bicycle across the US twice. Once west to east, once north to south. But that one-continent transverse is nothing to this young college kids' epic trans-Eurasia (two continents) bike ride, now underway. He is riding from Portugal to Shanghai. He is currently in Kazakhstan, about halfway.  What an adventure!

I supported this kickstart fund to reduce US Congress's dependence on big money by substituting small money.  Launched with Lawrence Lessig, they are ironically trying to create a SuperPAC to run candidates for Congress to enact legislation to end the role of SuperPACs. It's an experiment, and I think it has a chance. https://mayone.us/

These suggestions ring true to me. Make good stuff, share, share, share.

1) Long form content gets more social shares than short form content
2) Having at least one image in your post leads to more Facebook shares
3) Having at least one image in your post leads to more Twitter shares
4) Invoke awe, laughter, or amusement. Appeal to people’s narcissistic side
5) People love to share lists and infographics
6) 10 is the magic number for lists
7) People tend to #share content that looks trustworthy
8) Getting one extra influencer to share your article has a multiplier effect
9) Repromote your old content on a regular basis.
10) The best day overall to publish content for social shares is Tuesday

Personal: I'm looking for a recommendation for a primary doctor at Kaiser (where we just moved) in San Francisco or the Peninsula. If you have one you love working with, email me.

The hyper-real encroaches. Synthetic reality that is "realer" than reality.

Video games are looking pretty close to reality, at least for driving, these days. Ironically what makes the video game not look 'real' is that it's too 'sharp'. If they just made it a little more drab and blurry it would look just like reality.___The hyper-real encroaches. Synthetic reality that is "realer" than reality.
