Let's draw some circles, algorithmically.
Dynamic Opacity
#CirclesCounted: 70

A pulsation can be generated with different elements. In this case the pulsation is done by many circles with a dynamic opacity. The more circles used, the less you can see different circles in the animation.

You can find the live animation and the full (processing) code here:

And here is the overview in case you have missed one:

Google+ Events on CircleCount

Today we are launching a new search and analysis tool for Google+ Events.

On the main page (linked above) you will find current Google+ Events. You will be able 
► to check for more events on other days with a date selector
► to search for events by keywords
► add new events that are not yet in our index

Every event is linked on this page to an analysis page where you can find more information about this event, like
► the most plusoned comments on the event
► the persons/pages with the most followers having commented on this event
► all commenters of this event
► all guests of this event who are going/went to the event

What could be a better example than an event with +Mark Traphagen, +Ronnie Bincer, +Jeff Sieh, +Wade Harman, +Eric Enge, +martin shervington, +David Amerland (ordered by their Google-ID ;) )?
Check out this event by +Plus Your Business! at:

What's the first event you will add on this page?

The link in the original post looks broken, here is a working one:

How NOT to look ugly on a webcam

Aside from the Enhanced Features  that Google added to Hangouts onAir, here are additional tips to pay attention to if you want to look great on camera.

Pay extra attention to your environment (background) and the fact that you need to be wired in.

Have you seen my views?
I need my views back!
Unviewed Views?

In the last week we have received a lot of messages like these.
It looks like something happened with the view number on Google+.
This post is to inform you that you are not alone.

If you want you can check your view number history here: (and click on "Views" in the history chart)

According to the TCs +John Skeats and +John Elstone (and probably some more), these are the most common reasons:

* There are occasional glitches in the view counting algorithm. (It is not as simple as one might think because multiple actions contribute to the view count.) When that happens, the counts generally return to their prior level within about 72 hours.

* Google is constantly policing Google+ for Terms of Service (TOS) violations. Repeat violators and serious violators can have their accounts closed. When that happens, all actions by the accounts that contribute to the view count are removed permanently. There is usually relatively constant activity in that area, however occasionally the Abuse Team detects a pocket for related accounts which can result in a substantial drop affecting specific pages. Note that this would not imply that the person experiencing the drop did anything wrong, only that people who viewed their profiles/pages or acted on their posts did.

* When you delete posts and photos that have activity associated that contributes to the view count associated with them, your view count is reduced by whatever activity was associated with the deleted items.

(I hope it is ok for you that I copied this text from your comments)

There was a similar bug 6 months ago:

Let's see if we will get our views back ;)

20.000 Chrome Extension Users

Like you can see in the attached image, we have a lot of new chrome extension users in the last days.
We have hit today the huge milestone of 20.000 users!

These are 20.000 persons who have installed our extension and are running Chrome at least once per week.
This is unbelievable and something we would have never imagined when we launched version 0.1 ;)

Are you one of these users?
What is your favorite feature and why isn't there a review written by you yet? ;)

You can find more stats like this about CircleCount here:

I have it. But only activate it occasionally. Does that affect it? Chrome already eats up what little memory I have.

#CirclesCounted: 35

For a Greek guy this is pretty interesting. Especially if you are living in Germany and always thought that Spanish is the language to blame when you don't understand something.

Also interesting:
Looks like Japanese people don't have any problems at all since they don't have an equivalent of “It’s all Greek to me” ;)

Fascinating graph. "The phrase actually comes from a Medieval Latin proverb, “Graecum est; non potest legi,” meaning “It is Greek; it cannot be read.” From there, the phrase filtered into many European languages. Today, English, Spanish, Polish, Norwegian and Swedish all use Greek as a metaphor for incomprehensibility.

Mark Liberman, a professor linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania, started wondering what the equivalent was in different languages. Drawing on a variety of sources, including Wikipedia, Omniglot and user comments, he created the graph above, which shows the language that other languages use to describe things that are hard or impossible to understand."
English speakers say, “It’s all Greek to me,” when they find something hard to understand. Shakespeare used the phrase in “Julius Caesar” (“Those that understood him smiled at one another and shook their heads; but for mine own part, it was Greek to me”). It’s also common in Spanish, where some people think it gave […]
