Here is a new concept I made: Instagram Experience, a tablet version of Instagram. Please don’t mind the Nexus 10 tablet or the outdated Android version. It's just to show off the experience. I didn't design it with a platform in mind.

Happy birthday Google+!

I'd also like to thank the media hate, because without that I would have never made it to the NYT website ;)
Some people who use Google Plus say it is a thriving social network, useful for photography, video chats, in-depth online conversations and meeting new people who have similar interests.

I'm sad to see Circa go since I said "it's the best concept for providing news on mobile devices" about a year ago. https://plus.google.com/+BasKeetelaar/posts/fURsFnt9fsJ

There are multiple articles claiming there were too many similarities between Circa and traditional media and that that is the reason why it didn't work. I think clickbait was the biggest problem. It's apparently hard to sell a news app that just tells you what you need to know. For me, it was no problem that Circa didn't make long features, because I know where to find those. Following news stories and the whole card concept are still great features and will be part of Circa's legacy. 

Circa was powered by humans, so I don't know if there is any proprietary technology to sell. Last year, David Cohn, who left the company later that year, told me on Twitter he thought "a combination of human+algo intelligence is the best solution. We hope to add tools along the way." 

Circa always advertised itself as a company that wrote stories, not summaries, because "summaries aren't alive". But I think the Summly technology that was acquired by Yahoo does a pretty good job and I think it would have been better if they focused on a combination of tech and human reporters from the start. To me, it felt like humans were doing work that could have easily been done by computers.

My longest post so far. 4230 words, or 18 minutes (according to Medium's calculations) on Mark Weiser, ubiquitous computing, internet of things, Google I/O and a lot more.

"Our privacy is being attacked on multiple fronts. I'm speaking to you from Silicon Valley, where some of the most prominent and successful companies have built their businesses by lulling their customers into complacency about their personal information. They're gobbling up everything they can learn about you and trying to monetize it. We think that's wrong. And it's not the kind of company that Apple wants to be."

“You might like these so-called free services, but we don’t think they’re worth having your email or your search history or now even your family photos data-mined and sold off for God knows what advertising purpose.”

Now, Mr. Cook, I'm not the CEO of the most profitable company in the world, but I think you should simply say Apple products are better instead of saying others are bad. Because then there would be no reason to look at other (free) products at all, right? So why didn't you say that? The answers is because Apple is behind in cloud services and web services in general. Besides that, it's pretty ironic you talk about privacy, while "the fappening" happened because of your products.

I also think you know that Apple needs data too. Otherwise, your smart-products will stay dumb forever.

Don't know if this is new, but searching for "adblock" in the Chrome Web Store doesn't give any results. It's still live in the store, but you just have to... Google it.

Lots of talk about ad-blocking. I use an adblocker, but sites I frequently visit or sites that are not part of a large corporation are in my whitelist. Ads on mobile are the worst in my opinion, especially the ones that pop-up while I'm reading an article. I use Adblock on my phone in Firefox, but I use Chrome most of the time.

I don't think Safari will  come with an adblocker out of the box in iOS 9, but it might be easy to install one. What will happen? No access unless you turn off your adblocker? Everything behind a paywall? Not many sites can afford to do that.

Another option is simply better ads. i'm willing to completely turn off my adblocker if a product that I recently looked for on Google shows up in an ad with a 5 or 10% discount. That would be a truly personal ad that's actually useful as well.
