Michael hasn't shared anything with you.

People are more likely to share with you if you add them to your circles.

I'm a disturbed and disturbing Canadian software geek-turned English teacher-turned father-turned back to (part-time) software geek living, to my surprise, in the People's Republic of China.

If you're trying to categorize me by circle, here are a few circles you might try:
  • software development, especially Erlang but not restricted to Erlang
  • programming language archaeology
  • international music
  • international cuisine
  • teaching ESL/EFL
  • political cynicism (a pox on all their houses!)
If you're a single-issue activist whose feed will be filled mainly with one-sided ranting on your issue of choice, please don't bother circling me.

The same applies to you if you mostly spew marketing for some company or another in your feed. 

I should note that I'm also a gamer (tabletop RPG, board games, card games, miniatures games, etc.) but I don't have a gamers circle because … past experience has shown that people whose only point of shared interest is games tend to annoy me to no end.  I've deleted everybody who's "just a gamer" and won't be circling anybody whose only point of shared interest is gaming.  Sorry.
Bragging rights
I don't fill out "bragging rights". Oh, wait....
Basic Information
