“Almost always, when I told someone I was writing a book about ‘eating animals,’ they assumed, even without knowing anything about my views, that it was a case for vegetarianism,” he says. “It’s a telling assumption, one that implies not only that a thorough inquiry into animal agriculture would lead one away from eating meat, but that most people already know that to be the case.” What we know about eating animals is that we don’t want to know.

This is brilliant. It's like a more hands on version of John Smith's The Girl Chewing Gum: http://youtu.be/upHAWrEj1qY

A Note for artists on G+

I added +Christopher Moss to my circles today. He is an artist who I have never personally met. If this had been a facebook friend request I almost certainly wouldn't have added him. I think of my facebook network as private space. It is a place I like to keep up with my friends and see what my family is up to and I find is ill suited to more public discourse (they are dirt bag control freaks and I don't want to play in their sand box). And despite all the fuss about real names, that is not how I have been thinking of G+.

Like Twitter I think of the G+ as more public space like a blog or Tumbler. I am not looking "to friend," I am interested in "following;" finding people who are sharing on subjects I am interested in. If, when I checked Christopher's feed (which I do when ever anyone adds me to their circles), I had found that the only subject he posted on was a stream of links to, and images of, his own artwork I would not have added him.

Just like on Twitter, I am interested in following strangers. But also like Twitter I am not interested in someone else's ham-fisted attempts at self promotion. Authors who tweet nothing but announcements of book readings and new editions suck. Authors like +David Brin who share whatever is that happens to be on their mind are great. Same goes for artists.

Christopher has some examples of his art up on his profile page, which is fine, but his feed, while pretty short (like most everyone else's on G+), is not solely dedicated to the topic of his own art. Judging by what's there, he seems interested in sharing what he is interested in, not shilling what he's making.

Finally, I was especially impressed when I read his profile introduction. He writes:


"If I don't actually know you but I've added you it is probably because we do have other artist and/or art world and/or online friends in common and we simply haven't met yet. I mean you no harm, I've come in peace."

"Also, I use that other social network a lot more than this one, though this one is shaping up to be something totally different from the lookbooks."

"Regarding that, I'm adding most of the suggested people google offers me, taking a different tack than I've employed on other social media sites, this place seems like a good one to find out about all of you. Somehow facebook seems limiting and g+ feels freeing. I think it has something to do with the way each individual network became known to users, facebook was shared between intimate contacts (at least by me) and the g+ universe seems more useful if we all give up those notions of intimacy. That's how I see it now. 11.8.2011"

...

This is a great introduction and nicely sums up something simular I have been feeling sinse joining G+, that this site promises to be something different. Unlike Christopher I haven't been accepting every suggestion google makes, but I have been sniffing out everyone who approaches me and pursuing the circles of people I find interesting for other interesting people to add.

Something G+ lacks is the Twitter tradition of Follow Fridays, which is great because Follow Fridays has degenerated into an almost meaningless series of shout outs. But for those of you with boring feeds, who are wondering if there is anything going on here, allow me to introduce a few people who have very active and fun feeds. Adding +Scott Beale +Adam Jackson +Xeni Jardin and +Tim Carmody will immediately give you plenty of interesting things to look through next time you check in.

I would also suggest adding +Sarah Pavis +Guan Yang +Jorge Spinoza +Robin Sloan +Tim McCool +Sylvia S +Carolina A. Miranda +Marius Watz +Joanne McNeil and +darien train - these folks don't post quite as much, but I always find them worth checking in on.

Some of these people I know from Twitter, others from Google Reader, Darien and I met outside of a boom closet we both mistook for a men's room, Not one of them "friended" me on Facebook. If there are any people you have been enjoying following here please announce them so the rest of us can find them.

Did you know that today is the 172nd anniversary of the daguerreotype's introduction to the world? To celebrate this critical moment in the development of photography, I'm sharing photos of Googlers behind their cameras - with Picnik's daguerreotype effect thrown in as a bonus. I'd love to make a giant collage of Plus Photogs behind their cameras - share a photo to get in the mix!


(Tool tip - if you change your profile photo in Google+, you can click 'Edit in Picnik' from below your photo after uploading. Daguerreotype is in the Create tab at the top of the list!)
