Join me in Spartathlon 2015! // RunWithMe​ is a great site where you can participate in virtual runs (that you actually run IRL) anywhere in the world. We currently need 8 more people to start our Spartathalon race (you can even walk it if you like). 

Participation is so simple. Once you're signed up and the race starts, you'll get a daily email asking if you ran that day. You simply reply with whatever mileage you really ran or walked that day, and the app advances you along the race route and reports your progress relative to the other runners.

"Simpler" or dumber?
Very disappointed in this...
 
Starting today, the Ripples feature in Google+ is no longer available. Page owners can continue to get post performance analytics through the Google+ Insights tool, located in the My Business dashboard. Thanks for your support as we continue to make Google+ a simpler, more streamlined experience for all.

Shared circles murdered, Collections born: Upping the game for G+ curators // Crazy thought: maybe Google didn't like (in the end) the ease of massively sharing hundreds of people's profiles to thousands other people. Maybe that served the purposed of many people being happy to have thousands of followers (and thus be happy to be on Google+). Maybe they found out that it doesn't improve overall post quality in the long run. 

Maybe they realised we should curate content instead of people. And thus, shared circles are killed, and collections are born. 

And now we get to handpick other people's good content, and try to promote a collection of it. And now we're on Level 2 of the Google+ Maze. We'd better get used to it. :)

Google releases something incomplete? Unheard of! :) Thank God for +CircleCount ...
 
Find Google+ Collections on CircleCount
http://www.circlecount.com/collections/

A week after Google+ launched the Collections and after we have tracked a few collections, we are happy to introduce a search for Collection on CircleCount.
Search for any word/keyword/phrase or whatever you want to find the Collections that could be interesting for you.
In the results you will see the owner of the Collection and also the number of followers the Collection has and (most interesting): the cover of the Collection
As you can see in the attached screenshot "food" has been visualized in different ways by +Mike Elgan, +Luria Petrucci, +Jackie M, +Larry Fournillier, +Jaana Nyström, +Janice Mansfield  and many more.

This is not the first time where we are surprised that Google+ isn't offering a search for a new feature, but
We are here to help ;)

So far we have found 39,705 Collections from 15,108 profiles and pages. And we are finding daily new Collections.
What is your favorite Collection?

PEC: From circles to collections // The +Photo Exchange Club  is one of the best series of weekly circles, showcasing some excellent photographers. It was on long "vacation" and just when it was about to be resurrected, Google killed shared circles. So instead it now continues as a collection. As I was writing earlier (http://bit.ly/1QDalex), this is now a curation of content (mainly) instead of people. I kind of like the result. In a single stream I can see the most recent work of all the photographers of the "circle". Looking forward to seeing how this evolves :)
