A good way to get an idea of what New York's like to to check out this NYT Twitter feed. For every one OMG #Irene! there's about three c'mon's.

via Henry Kissinger's Twitter: We have run out of quail eggs in the VIP bunker on 5th Avenue. I appeal to Mayor Bloomberg to come to our assistance. #Irene #solidarity

Clicked his profile to be sure; yes, it's a parody. ~sigh~

Networking innovations on G+ are really impressive.
Okay. This is a long post, but it's at least interesting and at best it's worth trying out on your About page. I did so toot toot!

------------------------------------------------------
Who are your favorite Google+ users?
Help them to be seen!

And don't miss a sweet incentive for you (it's described before the end of the post).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is the project about?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Many of us have a favorite group/circle of G+ users, and I've noticed that we like to share their names with others.

The reasons may vary: It could be a famous and inspirational person. It could be one of your friends who just registered here, and you want to help him/her to be seen. It could be... you name it.

Unfortunatelly there is no easy way that we can find the people who are admired by a particular person.

Imagine I have just arrived at your profile. Your posts look great and your Google+ About page is promising. So I circle you! The next step? I leave.

And here comes the Public Circles Project. It helps visitors to leave your profile in a way that works for people you admire and even for you!

How?

Put the names of people you admire on your Google+ About page!

Imagine I've just circled you. This means I like you, and I'm open to hear your recommendations, especially if I'm in my explore mood and I'm looking for new names for my circles.

So, the project gives a nice additional exposure to the people you like.

However, there is more.

It also works for you!

How?

The visitor is leaving your profile, so you have nothing to lose. If you recommend an interesting person to the visitor then he/she goes to the profile of somebody you like. This means - he/she is staying in YOUR circles! There is a nice probability he/she will see YOUR inspiring comments that you added to the post published by the person you recommended.

So, it's just a win-win-win scenario.

Compare the scenario I've just described to the situation when the visitor leaves your profile for a G+ stream or for a person that is absolutely unrelated to you.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Are You Ready to Join the Project?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) Choose the inspiring/awesome/great users you really like.

2) Write their names on your Google+ About page (in the Introduction field).

3) Let other users know you joined the project. I'm sure you are an awesome person, and some of them will be happy to recommend YOU on their About page.


And that's all!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some Hints
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) The number of people you recommend is absolutelly up to you! It could be one name, two names, twenty names. There are no restrictions.

2) Create Public Circles Project section on your Google+ About page. It may look like this:

Start of the DEMO section #1
------------------------------------------
I'm involved in
Public Circles Project
------------------------------------------

Google+ users I recommend:

Name #1
Name #2
...
Name #XY

------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------
The end of DEMO section #1


There could be just too many inspirational users you would like to add, and it would mean just too many hassles for you. If this is your case, then you may like this wording:


Start of the DEMO section #2
------------------------------------------
I'm involved in
Public Circles Project
------------------------------------------

I could name about 100+ people who inspire me. It's just too many, so I'm going to do something slightly different here.

I've decided to dedicate this section to my friends who are new here, their following is low, and I want to give them exposure. This means that I will change the names from time to time.

Here come the latest two:

Name #1
Name #2

------------------------------------------
The end of DEMO section #2


It's important to clearly mark the section as Public Circles Project, so the visitors know what's going on there. Furthermore, add some reasons. Why is the user #XY awesome, inspirational, etc. ? Why should other users circle him/her?

The link to this post is voluntary. However, it helps to educate the visitors about the project, and it would be great if you add that link.

What do you think about The Public Circles Project?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm eager to hear your reactions.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A Sweet Incentive for Early Adopters of the Public Circles Project!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've prepared a circle called Early Adopters of Public Circles Project and it's waiting for you!

I'm going to add the first 300 Google+ users who fulfill the conditions described below to that list/circle.

Then I will export the circle as curated group to group.as and I will link it from the Public Circles Project section on MY Google+ About page.


The conditions:

1) Create the Public Circles Project section on YOUR Google+ About page. I don't care how many names you put in or who the users are. Just add Google+ users you like. Feel free to mention Jarek Klimek who is an experienced content curator and the editor-in-chief of www.photoextract.com photography magazine, but this is not a condition!

2) Use the text Learn about the Public Circles Project on your Google+ About page and link it to the original post. The best solution is described in the DEMO section above.

3) Share this post publicly, tell your followers you have joined the Public Circles Project and +mention my name in the text.

4) Comment on the original post that describes the project and add the link to your About page.

I will watch the comments, check the links and if you fullfilled all the conditions I will add you to the circle of early adopters.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PS: The +mentions don't work on Google+ About pages, so you have to use the real links.

PPS: You can use a curated group on group.as to share the names of recommended users. It works like this: You create a special circle in G+ (or you can even use an existing one!), than you import it to the curated group you created on group.as, then you grab the link of your group.as group and publish it in The Public Circles Project section on your G+ About page. That's it! +Colby Brown wrote a great description covering the process: https://plus.google.com/113455290791279442483/posts/ceDUbJ5moW5 . Here is an example of a curated group: http://www.group.as/jareks+list+of+recommended+google+plus+photographers/

PPPS: I realize there is In Joes's circles section in the left column and it can be used in a simillar way like The Public Circles Project. However, there is a huge difference. The ten names in The Public Circles Project are something totally different from hundreds or thousands of names in In Joes's circles section!

I made up a list of fiction writers I've been enjoying on G+.
Anyone can add to it. Add yourself or someone who's missing!

Three blocks from my place but no way to tell from what I can see from up here. A few cabs; dog walkers. Without the news coverage & Twitter hashtags this feels like a movie day. Prob still is.

Upper East Side: bars open; delis open; Duane Reades open (& friendly?!?!); cabs abound.
CNN: reporters in NYC standing in front of desolate boardwalks talking about evacuations and mandatory power shutdowns.
It's not that bad!
It might be bad later. Feels like time for movies now.

ATTENTION CALIFORNIANS: Want to be in a graphic novel?

Do you live in LA, Ventura, Santa Barbara or Kern County? Willing to drive to Thousand Oaks, CA this Sunday afternoon (Aug 14)?

I've got a difficult page coming up that requires an unusual crowd shot and I've decided I need photo reference. Aiming for 2-3pm. If you'd like to participate, please email me (info below) and I'll send more details.

Thanks and hope to see you this weekend!

Introduction
I write literary fiction. Short stories have appeared in THEMA and the inaugural issue of The Incongruous Quarterly.

Currently I'm working on a sequence of short stories and revising a novel about a guy who doesn't bring everything with him over the edge of a bridge.

I blog about fiction and writing at Yingle Yangle and co-host a comedy and current events podcast by the same name.
