I thought service providers had covered under our bridges by now. That's just completely outrageous!

And now for something completely different. Come on, more than 35k people need to see this.
 
It's like Monty Python and Pink Floyd had a bastard son.

On the continent XXXX which is quite like Australia these are also a problem. Not for Rincewind, of course, since he will never see one courtesy of his running so fast.
 
Drop Bears - Attack of the Killer Koalas

This deserves to be made!

You've seen, or at least heard about, #Sharknado and other B-Grade Horror movies, right? Well, wrap your minds around this.

Drop Bears - On the BIG Screen

This has to happen, people, but it won't happen without your support. The writer/director/producer has put together a +Kickstarter campaign to raise 90 grand to fund the movie. The Google+ #AboutAustralia  community needs to get this going.

There's a short-film preview available on Youtube - DROP BEARS - Attack! of the Killer Koalas (teaser)

Full details of the +Kickstarter campaign to get this funding is available here - http://goo.gl/QfX509

The guys at +CircleCount continue to push out great features. Now they came up with something following Google's spring cleaning of spam accounts.
 
The day after the Google+ Spring Cleaning
http://www.circlecount.com/weather/

Many Google+ers saw yesterday a drop in their follower count.
Something that made most of them smile after they realized that spam-accounts and bots have been removed.

+Markos Giannopoulos had a great idea to create a "+CircleCount Google+ Weather Alert". And that's where the name in the url of our new page came from ;)

We can clearly see here that something exceptional happened yesterday. Check it out in our blog (http://www.circlecount.com/blog/2014/03/average-growth-of-the-follower-numbers/) or go directly to the new page: http://www.circlecount.com/weather/

This is a test. Simply ignore it. Or do whatever you think you need to do.
 
This is an experiment to see the reach on a new page.
Once this image is shared/+1d we can look at the view count/reach relationship for a new page.

A good read, but you know that facts do not help against deniers.
 
"What We Know" About Climate Change: New Report Released

I have been serving on a panel convened by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (+AAAS ) to provide a succinct summary of the state of scientific knowledge of climate change. The "What We Know" report has just been released. The +AAAS  summary, along with videos and other materials, is here: http://whatweknow.aaas.org/

The full report is here:
http://whatweknow.aaas.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/AAAS-What-We-Know.pdf

The image shows tumbleweeds in California, and is from an article by Justin Gillis of +The New York Times about the report:

Introduction
Hello and Thank You for following me on Google+!

Let me tell you a few things about the way I use Google+ and what you can expect from me. Let me also tell you something about my expectations.

  • If you're new to Google+, don't hesitate to ask. Do not expect an answer immediately, please. I have a lot of other things to do.
  • I mostly post public. Whatever I post public you're free to re-share without asking. If ever I post limited then that probably happened for a reason and I'd appreciate if you could ask before re-sharing. I cannot force you to do that, of course.
  • Don't be a #bluehead. If you want me to have a look at your profile, at least have a profile picture of some sort. It need not be an actual photo of you - just something.
  • If you absolutely want to get blocked, tell me. I have no problem blocking people that go on my nerves or post inappropriate stuff. Before you troll me to the point where you get blocked, simply ask for inclusion into my 'blocked' sphere. If you don't do that you will be blocked after I had enough of you.
  • I do not share or plus on command. If I think anything you post is worth plussing or sharing, I will do so. If I decide it's not worth it, I won't. I may also miss a lot of things.
  • Don't notify me too often. I don't mind being notified if it's on an infrequent basis. If you bother me too much with your notifications I'll mute you. Simple as that. After that, don't expect me to see anything you send me via notification.
  • It's me who decides. I'll decide who to follow and I will leave the same freedom to you. If you feel inclined to circling me, you're welcome. If you don't like my posts, feel free to uncircle me. I will not be impressed by threats of being uncircled.
  • Try to be nice. If you comment on my posts or in some other way communicate with me, try to be nice. I also do. I can be sarcastic and cynical at times, but I'm mostly a friendly person.
  • If you feel like being ignored, maybe you are. Rather than getting into lengthy discussions about differing points of view I might just leave the subject. If you don't get an answer to any of your comments, you are either being ignored on purpose or I simply forgot about the thread. Feel free to +mention me to get me in again. If that doesn't lead to a reaction, live with it.
Occasionally I share or re-share circles. That is a good way to find new people to follow. I'm not forcing you to add all those people. Add as many or few as you like. I will not notify anybody of this kind of posts; I generally do not send notifications. Exceptions might apply.

If you absolutely cannot stand seeing shared circles, do not follow me. In that case, your best bet would be to stay clear of Google+ anyway.

One last word: I am not on Facebook. It's not necessary to invite me. I will not come.


Bragging rights
Only 2 Terry Pratchett novels missing in my collection ;-) In fact, it might be more now depending on how loosely you define "novel".
