Site Reliability Engineers: the "world's most intense pit crew"

In today's blog post, Google Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) +Andrew Widdowson talks about his path to Google and what he does now as an SRE.

"SREs at Google are the software engineers responsible for ensuring that all of Google’s services are super reliable and super fast, all of the time......our work is like being a part of the world’s most intense pit crew. We change the tires of a race car as it’s going 100mph."

HOW TO FIND AMAZING PEOPLE ON GOOGLE+ USING +CircleCount (or interesting people from your country)

I’m sure some of you don’t want to follow celebrities on Google+ just because they’re popular, but you’re actually looking for people that share interesting things for you, or even interesting people from your country.

Starting today, +Daniel Sandstein and his +CircleCount provide us a very interesting tool that I like to call “Popularity Ranking Slider” . This helps us find not so popular people that actually share very engaging content.

It allows us to filter people by number of followers. Besically, we can choose to see people that get the most feedback (+1es, reshares & comments) and have a number of followers in a range that we choose, like I’ve looked for this post for interesting people under 1000 followers. You can go even further and filter these people by country to find local interesting g+ers and/or by gender depending on what you’re looking for.

So, here the link to it:
Play with the slider and then you can use this tool from +Jari Huomo to find their interesting posts:
