Read the section on Categories below if I seem to be spamming your stream.
This is a support post. If you have questions, ask them in the comments below. I will try to answer, and I may or may not delete question and answers after some time, depending on the permanent value of our conversation for other readers.
I am German, and I am posting a lot of content in german language. Some posts are in english, but overall I am convinced that there is a sufficient amount of english content on Google plus, so I do see no pressing need to add to that.
I am at the moment working on Openstack at , an ecommerce hosting company in Berlin, Germany. I used to work at in Amsterdam working on databases, at MySQL AB as a consultant, at web.de in Karlsruhe as a Security Engineer and at NetUSE AG in Kiel in various roles. I wrote Linux HOWTO documents, contributed to PHP, Spamassassin and many other projects. I do speak on conferences.
I am a high volume poster. Many of the posts are reshares. If you are new to Google plus, and follow me that may mean I am about to spam your stream.
You do not have to read all my content, I am using Collections. A collection is a substream - instead of following me, the person, you can follow one of my collections.
If you follow me as a person, you will get all collections as well, plus everything that is not in a collection. If you do not follow me as a person or unfollow me, you can still follow one or more of my collections, or follow all but some collections.
You can also set up notifications on a per-collection basis, i.e. follow me as a person, and follow a collection and turn on notification for the collection only.
Photography - https://plus.google.com/collection/w5npb Images only. Long pauses, with bursts of many images.
Speaker Decks - https://plus.google.com/collection/0RMYX Slides, Videos of talks, with me as a speaker (or featured talks of people I know). Low volume.
Bloggish stuff - https://plus.google.com/collection/UUFYX I don't have a blog any more. Whenever I have a longer writeup, explaining or discussing stuff, it will end up here. Low volume. Discussion very welcome.
Bücher - https://plus.google.com/collection/4INXX I read a lot of books, mostly Scifi and Fantasy, also non-fiction. Low volume, postings appear in batch. There will be spoilers. This is the only warning you will ever get for that.
News from Neuland - https://plus.google.com/collection/khHXX Reshares and links to news articles I read. High volume, a lot of discussion, at the moment no deeper categorization.
Jobs - https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/I7f8c
Sometimes people ask me to post job offers, mostly in Germany. Low volume, low discussion.
More collections will appear as I go, and I will then update this post. Do you want another category? Ask in the comments.
You did delete my comment
I probably did.
I have a lot of followers, and many read the comments. I want to make that a worthwhile experience. So a comment that does not contribute to a meaningful discussion is likely to be deleted - 'me too', 'awesome post', 'haha funny' is likely to go.
I don't hate you, and I didn't dislike your comment. I just thought that it was a waste of time for some 50k+ other people, because it was redundant. Don't take it personally. You can always reshare my article and comment on it in your stream (and post a link to that as a comment to my article, explaining and inviting people to come over, I will never delete that).
I am a customer of http://friendsplus.me, and I am using that to reshare stuff to Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. You can follow me there, but discussion happens here. My identities on other social services are presence and reshare only, I do not really exist as a person over there.
Ausser den beiden nichtkillbaren Kaesten "You might like communities/topics"... ist mein All-Stream spamfrei.. und die werden so ca. alle 30 Beitraege mal eingefuegt, das ist ignorierbar.
