Just when I think Google might know too much about me, I see over on the side of the page "You Might Like... Dallas Cowboys". Either Google doesn't know me that well at all, or they are sneakier than we ever thought.

I want to be able to arrange my circles into concentric or Venn-Diagram-like circles. For example, I could have circles for everywhere I've worked, but then a giant coworkers circle encompassing it all.
