Google thinks that I will be interested in communities about body building and dogs. I have never expressed the slightes trace of interest in any of those topics. At all. Good job in organizing the world's information. Not.

A widespread caricature of the Stoic idea of wisdom look something like: "Don't waste time on reading, thinking and discussing. Just go out and do the right thing". That's very far from what the Stoics are actually saying. Wisdom requires extensive studies of the laws of life.

"Wisdom is a great and extensive thing; it needs space; one must learn about matters divine and human, about the past and future, about transient and eternal matters, about time"

- Seneca, Letters 88.33

"the condition of the mind will not be in its best state unless it has understood the laws of life in its entirety"

- Seneca, Letters 95.57

+Jannik Lindquist That is an incredibly good question. I'm going to have to chew on that one. But I suppose it depends on the definition of "superficial". Contextually, that could be a relative expression.

I wonder when G+ will get the "Spaces"-treatment with support for links, videos and images in comments and with replies showing up instantly

Moving to the Left and away from the Centre is the only way for the Democrats to defeat Trump.
His party reforms could help the Democrats defeat Donald Trump.

"It is clear to you, I am sure, Lucilius, that no man can live a happy life, or even a supportable life, without the study of wisdom; you know also that a happy life is reached when our wisdom is brought to completion, but that life is at least endurable even when our wisdom is only begun. This idea, however, clear though it is, must be strengthened and implanted more deeply by daily reflection; it is more important for you to keep the resolutions you have already made than to go on and make noble ones. You must persevere, must develop new strength by continuous study, until that which is only a good inclination becomes a good settled purpose"


- Seneca, Letters 16.1

I can honestly say that I already enjoy Spaces much more than either Google+ or Facebook. I think the classic eternally flowing stream with wildly different material will probably die at some point in favor of more focused environments such as Spaces. Perhaps we are moving away from the agora metaphor for the ideal social media platform toward something like a literary salon

Yes, anybody with a link. You are not misunderstanding. The same features that make Spaces attractive also make them annoying. It is a matter of the size of the group.

""Anyone who thinks he benefits only from something that he has and sees, and who regards having had it as worthless, is taking an over-restricted view of his joys; for pleasures all quickly desert us, they ebb and fade and are swept away almost before they arrive. So our mind must be focused on the past, and everything that has ever delighted us must be recalled and frequently revisited in our thoughts; the memory of pleasures is longer lasting and more dependable than their presence"

- Seneca, Consolation to Polybius 10.3

"What makes us terrible people is that no one looks back over his life. We ponder what we are about to do (though not as often as we should); we do not ever reflect on what we have done. Yet plans for the future depend on the past"

I think the weakest part of Spaces is how people are notified if they haven't installed the app. Lots of people have a Google account but don't muse it much if at all - and that group of people are extremely unlikely to see notifications in the notification area on Google products. In that sense, Spaces is Google Buzz reborn in as much at it relies quite heavily on people having and using Gmail

Wave and buzz disappeared way faster than Google+ will, if it does. Maybe I will disappear before Keep?
Adoption: Might be, but I'm not sure, especially given certain things Google is good at and not good at. Then there's the inertia of stuff like iMessages or Pinterest. Aren't multi-party chat hangouts like Facebook groups? And Spaces like simple communities? So adoption will be driven (or not) by two things IMO:

1. Agreeing to use yet one more platform or leave the other(s).
2. The actual desire/need to have a bulletin board.

Will it be less geeky than the shaky debut of Google+? Certainly.
Can it break through the fatigue of yet another... Not sure.

One tantalizing aspect of Spaces is that it makes it possible to quit Facebook and still hang out on social media with friends and family who won't join G+ ever

+Milly​​ G+ has been vilified enormously by the tech press. This was partly Google's own fault because they - for years and very heavy handedly - tried to nudge everyone on the planet to use G+. The result is that a lot people's reluctance to try something new has been turned into downright contempt.

Introduction
Trained as a philosopher. Live with my two kids, Sikker and Kirstine, in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

I'm particularly interested in:

- Theories about happiness, wisdom and the good life - first and foremost the ancient Greek and Roman eudamonistic tradition as we know it from the writings of Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics.

- Human beings as social/political animals

- How we understand the life we live through the stories we tell

- Philosophical counseling

Apart from my philosophical interests, I'm interested in technology as a user who is very particular about his tools. Because of this, I occasionally write about Android phones and tablets and Chrome OS, Google+ and Blogger
