Damien Boath686We have the honour to interview one of the great fantasy authors ever!Stephen Donaldson, author of the Thomas Covenant series (Lord Fouls Bane etc)If you like fantasy, then this is a must listen! Join us to ask questions of the man via our Q&A!From www.stephenrdonaldson.com     Born in 1947 in Cleveland, Ohio, Stephen R. Donaldson lived in India (where his father was a medical missionary) until 1963. He graduated from the College of Wooster (Ohio) in 1968, served two years as a conscientious objector during the Vietnam War, doing hospital work in Akron, then attended Kent State University, where he received his M.A. in English in 1971.     After dropping out of his Ph.D. program and moving to New Jersey in order to write fiction, Donaldson made his publishing debut with the first "Covenant" trilogy in 1977. That enabled him to move to a healthier climate. He now lives in New Mexico.     The novels for which he is best known have received a number of awards. However, the achievements of which he is most proud are the ones that seemed the most unlikely. In 1993 he received a Doctor of Literature degree from the College of Wooster, and in 1994 he gained a black belt in Shotokan karate from Sensei Mike Heister and Anshin Personal Defense.     After completing the five-book, seven-year Gap sequence of science fiction novels, Donaldson spent quite some time "on vacation." However, he has now returned to work. His most recent book prior to The Man Who Fought Alone was a second collection of short fiction, Reave the Just and Other Tales. He is currently hard at work on "The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant".The Newbie Writers' Podcast Episode 131 - Stephen Donaldson!2014-05-03 01:00:003

Ole Olson48,076It has come to light that Google has started funding and supporting some of the most vile right wing extremist collectives and corporate front groups in America. Join us by changing your avatar and boycotting every single Google service for one day in protest. On Wednesday, December 11th make a serious attempt to not use anything Google. No Google Searches. No Google+. No gmail. No Youtube. No Google Calendar. No Blogger. No Google Maps. No Google Photos. No Google translate. No Google reverse image search. No Google Play. No Google Drive. No Google Books. No Google Shopping. Nothing.  (Android is immune since it is Open Source). If nothing else, just think of this as a challenge to see if you are able to spend a day on the internet without using a single Google product or service or just take the day off and enjoy the real world for a change. Google, many of us are your most loyal users, and we love the technical direction everything is heading by rolling all services into Google+ but it must be understood in no uncertain terms that we vehemently disagree with your decision to start to fund proto-fascist, right wing extremist, anti-environmental, anti-worker, and anti-science shock fronts like:•ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council)•American Conservative Union•Americans for Tax Reform•CATO Institute•Federalist Society•George Mason University Law School Law and Economics Center•Heritage Action•Mercatus Center•National Taxpayers Union•R Street Institute•Texas Public Policy Foundation______________________________________________More information:Don’t Be Evil?

UNICEF USA359,549Join our End Trafficking team as they host a Google+ Hangout on Air to talk about the importance of addressing the demand for human trafficking. Human trafficking is a business, operating on the principles of supply and demand. There is a large demand for commercial sex, cheap labor, and cheap goods. As long as there is a demand, there will always be someone willing to meet the supply, even at the expense of another human being.  We'll be joined by our friends at CAASE and +Not For Sale's Free2Work. CAASE will discuss the demand for sex trafficking and how they're working to address it, specifically with youth. Not For Sale will share about the demand for cheap goods and therefore cheap labor and how their app, Free2Work, helps inform consumers about the purchases they make. A link to the Google+ Hangout on Air will be posted on this event page, as well End Trafficking's Twitter account and Google + Community, shortly before we go live.Twitter: https://twitter.com/EndTraffickGoogle+ Community: http://bit.ly/19JiLzs After our initial discussion, we will open it up to Q&A from the audience, so be sure to leave your questions for our panelists on this page!Why We Need to Address Demand2013-11-14 19:00:0097

Artists In The Plus1,781,287+Artists In The Plus is proud to bring you a very special "Concerts In The Plus!' with Guitar Legend +Preston Reed.(Banner Photo By +Ralf Hebauf )+Preston Reed has virtually reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played. Reed practices a flamboyant self-invented style, characterized by percussive techniques and simultaneous rhythm and melody lines that dance and ricochet around each other, giving his music a level of excitement that is unparalleled among today's guitarists.Playing an array of guitars from acoustic to electric to classical Reed's vast range of explosively original music will forever change your expectation of a guitarist.First-time listeners find it impossible to believe that they're hearing just the one musician, in real time. Reed attacks the entire instrument in a never-ending search for the orchestra he knows is lurking inside. At full tilt, his fingers, thumbs, fists and hands at once suggest a drummer, keyboardist, bassist and several guitarists at work.The most impressive thing about Reed's technique, though, is that it doesn't draw attention to itself. His compositions are far from abstract virtuosic displays; even without lyrics he creates vivid, engrossing scenes. Sometimes the effect is almost onomatopoetic. Reed generates visual stimuli with every tweak of his instrument, thus augmenting his wordless compositions with an aura of the poetic. Each tune is a story in itself with a potent, cinematic atmosphere and an almost tangible thread of communication between Preston Reed and the listener.Reed's entry into this guitar odyssey was inauspicious enough, his path thereafter largely self-discovered. A few chords learned from his guitar playing father, a brief, very brief, flirtation with the ukulele, clandestine practice sessions of his favourite Beatles and Stones songs on dad's guitar .... and then a too-strict classical guitar teacher led to premature retirement.At 16, however, Reed heard Jefferson Airplane's rootsy blues offshoot, Hot Tuna. His interest was rekindled big time. Acoustic guitar heroes John Fahey and Leo Kottke were studied, their styles absorbed but not imitated, and at this point things really begin to get interesting because, at 17, Reed, by now precociously proficient, played his first live gig, supporting beat poet Allen Ginsberg at the Smithsonian Institute.Just getting on a train from his native Armonk in New York State to Washington was a cool adventure. And it was just the first of many, not least of which was the one which resulted from his signing his first deal with a major record company, MCA, through the auspices of his friend, country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett.Determined to make the most of this opportunity, Reed pushed himself to go beyond the standard fingerpicking styles he'd perfected. The result was the beginnings of Reeds startlingly innovative style, with its percus"Concerts In The Plus!" Preston Reed2013-05-26 21:00:0071

We're going to provide a steady stream of humorous and thoughtful commentary throughout Dodd's speech, so please join us online or in San Francisco.Chris Dodd pushed hard to pass the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), a bill that would given content holders new tools to censor the Internet in the name of stopping "piracy."  Dodd has also said that he is "confident" negotiations for a SOPA revival are taking place. While it's tempting to write off that confidence as the result of watching one too many zombie movies, it should be no surprise that the MPAA is pushing for a new backroom deal. That's why EFF and other Internet freedom advocates are committed to fighting for an uncensored web.Follow our live coverage on Twitter @EFFLive or buy tickets to attend in person: https://doddandnewsom.eventbrite.com/ EFF Livetweets Chris Dodd's Speech in San Francisco2012-10-03 03:00:0060

Dan Thompson2,147Here is my circle of writers.  My suggestion to you new G+ folks is to add the entire circle as its own circle, i.e. "Dan's Writing Circle".  Over time, move your favorites over into your own growing array of circles.In particular, though, I'd say pay attention to John Ward, Evo Terra, Nathan Lowell, Brook Johnson, and Jefferson Smith.2014-02-22 19:51:53249212

(DOMINATION)I am sharing my inner circle in this circle (at least I think most everyone, had a little technical difficulty so I may have missed a few.)This circle is 50% some of my inner circle on G+, and 50% were selected at random from the people who are following me. I am asking everyone to SHARE the circle and help launch some new people into the G+ mix.  Anyone who SHARES this circle is guaranteed a spot in my next circle share.

Matt Gibson920,723Ok so we are going to try something different here...As you may have noticed, I am sharing a circle of really cool people and pages for you to add to your circles.  If you want cool content from cool people - add the circle!  It's that simple!  If YOU would like your profile to be shared to almost 1 million people, leave me a comment that tells me a little bit about YOU.  What do you like?  What is your favorite music?  Where do you live?  Let's get to know each other!  What are your social network or website addresses (simply posting a link without telling me about YOU won't make the cut btw)?Here is an example:Hi!  My name is +Matt Gibson and I am an independent artist working on my 1st album!  I like all forms of music but I tend to lean towards metal.  I play guitar, piano, drums and saxophone as well as sing!  You can check out my website at www.crimsonsymphony.com and you can subscribe to my +YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/crimsonsymphonymusicI like books by great authors like Tolkien, +TERRY BROOKS  and Raymond Feist among others.  I read a lot of non-fiction as well on subjects like business, marketing, antiques and tech.I am an amateur gardener and I aspire to own my own beehives.I like reading your posts because you are such a handsome fellow with that long wavy hair and manly beard and....ahem ok you can skip that part unless you really mean it LOL.Now that's not hard is it?  Tell me about yourself and get your profile shared to a million people!  Not a bad deal eh?New and OLD friends can participate but no cheating or dumb comments like "add me" or "hi".  You should all thank +Amanda Blain for giving me this idea to steal for our benefit btw... so let the fun and networking begin!!PS If your comment is really cool you may find yourself in the next Cool People circle and who knows, maybe we will become friends or colleagues? 2013-10-03 00:47:03249721243

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130

I always thought I hated apples, but maybe I just hate the varieties I've tried, the Red Delicious and the Granny Smith. Maybe I should try something different. I wonder what other vegetables I despise because the American food industry fucks everything up.

Having fantasized about turning my back on the world a few times myself, I think we need to get back into space and achieve interstellar spaceflight so that all these nutjobs can leave Earth and try their luck on some other planet where we won't have to deal with them any longer.

Galt’s Gulch Chile? One common theme that spans from leftist-hippies to followers of Ayn Rand is the notion of anarchic utopianism — that those who have free spirits and the right ideology can create an ideal community, free of the ills they perceive in our complex, compromise-ridden civilization.  On rare occasions, these communities have thrived… ironically those that have been run patriarchally by brilliant administrators, replicating feudalism-of-old, with a patina of egalitarian catechism.  But most swiftly collapse.  As in the case of the AnyRandian ideal community described here:    http://www.addictinginfo.org/2014/09/15/libertarian-utopia-styled-after-ayn-rand-book-spectacularly-falls-apart-almost-immediately/

This is not the only libertarian dream community in the works.  Perhaps more sturdy, but still problematic, are seasteading efforts propelled by Patri Friedman and Peter Thiel.    http://davidbrin.blogspot.com/2011/08/seasteading-some-problems-on-way-to.html

In the end, however, this is tragic for us all.  Libertarianism might have served as a rational and pragmatic counter-balance to the tendency to try solving all problems with statist approaches.  It might also have held true to the sane vision of Adam Smith - to do what is needed in order to maximize the number of skilled and capable young COMPETITORS in a flat-fair-open society.  Instead, it has been hijacked by solipsists who never, ever mention the word “competition” anymore, in their obsessive defense of towering accumulations of PROPERTY, never noticing how this serves the proto-feudal wishes of the oligarchs who were denounced by Adam Smith, and have always been the greatest enemies of markets and freedom.

See my devastatingly surgical dissection of Any Rand here.  http://www.davidbrin.com/aynrand.html___Having fantasized about turning my back on the world a few times myself, I think we need to get back into space and achieve interstellar spaceflight so that all these nutjobs can leave Earth and try their luck on some other planet where we won't have to deal with them any longer.

Male privilege doesn't have a lot of upsides these days, but I can get away with reading almost anything in public without some busybody asking me why I'm reading "such trash". When it does happen, I face few meaningful social penalties for telling such fools to go fuck themselves with a rusty bazooka.

As Natalie Schermer at +Curiosity Quills Press  writes in "In Defense of Plain Old Books", she isn't so privileged. https://curiosityquills.com/defense-plain-old-books/

Black Sabbath - "Loner"

"Loner" from Black Sabbath's 2013 album 13 is pretty much my theme song these days. It's not an anthem, just a fairly accurate description of who I am. I'm my own best friend, and my own worst enemy. And I doubt I'll be happy when I'm dead.

This is What Wasted Effort Looks Like

There's nothing like belting out 500 words on your lunch break, reading them over, and realizing they do nothing for the story. You've pretty much wasted your time if you can't find some other use for the text you just crapped out through your hands.

For some reason, Opeth's mellow and melancholy Damnation album really suits my mood tonight. I'm feeling somewhat depressed today. For some reason, my mood tends to dip right before my wife gets her period. It's like I'm the one who gets PMS, which doesn't really make sense.

The attached is an excerpt from Laurie Penny's Unspeakable Things: Sex, Lies and Revolution. I find the following particularly resonant.

As for young men, they were told they lived in a brave new world of economic and sexual opportunity, and if they felt angry or afraid, if they felt constrained or bewildered by contradictory expectations, by the pressure to act masculine, make money, demonstrate dominance and fuck a lot of pretty women while remaining a decent human being, then their distress was the fault of women and minorities. It was these grasping women, these homosexuals and people of colour who had taken away the power and satisfaction that was once their birthright as men. We were taught, all of us, that if we were dissatisfied, it was our fault, or the fault of those closest to us. We were built wrong, somehow. We had failed to adjust.

We used to blame thunder and lightning on the gods, until we used science to figure out how it really works. In Ghostbusters, the ghosts not only exist, they are subject to physical laws people can understand -- and exploit for profit. :)

We treat the economy as if it were a god, an inscrutable entity beyond human concerns whose demands take precedence over all other concerns.

But all gods have a secret weakness. We made the gods, and we can unmake them with two magic words: non serviam (I will not serve).

NETWORK NEUTRALITY

You may have noticed the pop-up on my site asking you to sign a petition demanding that the US government act to preserve network neutrality, or the open internet. You might wonder why I care. I have two reasons, one idealistic, and one selfish.

The Idealistic Reason

The Internet and the World Wide Web should be open and accessible to everybody who wants to contribute.

The Selfish Reason

The Open Internet gives independent creators like me an opportunity to reach an audience that traditional media does not. Without it, I'm screwed.

NETWORK NEUTRALITY

You may have noticed the pop-up on my site asking you to sign a petition demanding that the US government act to preserve network neutrality, or the open internet. You might wonder why I care. I have two reasons, one idealistic, and one selfish.

The Idealistic Reason

The Internet and the World Wide Web should be open and accessible to everybody who wants to contribute.

The Selfish Reason

The Open Internet gives independent creators like me an opportunity to reach an audience that traditional media does not. Without it, I'm screwed.

Why do big ISPs oppose network neutrality?

You may have seen propaganda backed by the National Cable and Telecommunications Association (https://www.ncta.com/) that opposes network neutrality. The NCTA is a lobbying group backed by Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon. It exists solely to push their agenda.

I can explain why Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon want to end network neutrality. It all comes down to money.

(image) http://images.huffingtonpost.com/2010-12-15-net_neutrality_loses_whatif.jpg

1. Without network neutrality, ISPs can double-dip by charging extra for privileged access ("fast lanes").

2. Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon aren't primarily ISPs. They're also cable and telephone providers. Without network neutrality, they can use their positions as major regional monopolies to kill competing services like Netflix and Vonage.

3. Without network neutrality, the internet is just cable TV version 2.0. The only content you'll ever see is the content corporate America blesses.

It is for these reasons that I support network neutrality, and think you should support the open internet as well. Please do what you can to fight back. Sign petitions, call your representatives in Congress, and comment on FCC Proceeding 14-28 in support of network neutrality.(http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/comment_search/execute?proceeding=14-28) Call your provider and cancel all non-internet services, thus showing them which services you value.

I'm with +Scott Wilson. That thing is ugly, and looks utterly useless.

I didn't really join the 'the apple watch looks terrible' crowd all day... I thought it looked fine. Nowhere near as good as the 360, but whatevs, better than the rectangular LG or Samsung watches, probably. Until I saw this picture. Everything else was a product shot. This is what it actually looks like on a wrist. And honestly, it does look pretty terrible. Without the carefully placed lights and gradients and reflections, it looks like a pretty outdated smartwatch with a big knob on the side. The square screen looks really awkward with huge bezels and the curved screen distorting the image. As much as some people like to bitch about limited functionality of a round screen, I think there's no contest here. Look up any screen of the Moto 360 or the upcoming LG R watch, and then compare that to what you see below.  I don't care what functionality it has or hasn't... My first smart watch will be round. ___I'm with +Scott Wilson. That thing is ugly, and looks utterly useless.
