Protip: Copy one circle into another circle.
1) Go to Circles.
2) Click on a circle.
3) Click "View circle in tab".
4) On the top right click "More actions" -> "Select all".
Then you can drag everyone from one circle into another circle.

Thanks +Joanna Smith for showing me how to do this.

Funny that this should pop up on HN today, I was just in an argument over storing passwords and I referenced this link.

All I know for sure is that Google+ needs to figure out a way not to have comments boost an old story back to the top of the stream. Makes everything feel very stale, even though it makes some sense to do this. FriendFeed battled with this issue as well, but there was more data constantly flowing in due to Twitter imports, etc.

A very cool timelapse of the New York Times front page every half hour since last September.

So, it turns out that if you do some digging you can see Google's estimation of the strength of your relationship with other people in your network, or in other words, how much you care about them.

One of the requests your browser issues while loading Plus homepage is to
https://plus.google.com/_/socialgraph/lookup/socialbar/

The reply, in json format, lists your friends and what seems to be a "relationship score". Here's my brother's line, for example:
["Alon Nir",,,36.94789383806835 {{the following fields were redacted}}]

Curiously, the score is not commutative, and my brother sees another (higher) score for me. Which leads to the following app, just waiting to be created, allowing lovers to check how much each "love" the other, kids checking who their parents love more and so on. If you create such an app and become a millionaire - please give me some credit :).

Looks like Google is reworking their themes site-wide to match the Google+ UX scheme
