Circle/Posting Philosophy

I circle people as I find them (public posts, comments in posts, references in posts) and they say/share something of interest to me. Please do read my profile (guess you are right now) and posts, and if you feel so moved, please circle me as well. Some day (soon), I will get my special interests detailed here; for now, read my stream for an idea of who I am and what I write about and share here.

The vast majority of my posts are Public. Feel free to share and, of course, comment. I use my circles for posts that are more topic specific, private, or for a particular segment. And, yes, I will put a list of circles here so you can see if one (or more) may interest you!
