t was 107 degrees in Austin today. So hot nobody had the energy to say how much better Austin was back when it was 112.

I love this mixture of UGC with real-time(ish) visualization: 'The Debt Crisis: What Should Congress Do?' Opinion and level of passion are instantly visible at both an individual and aggregate level. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/07/29/us/politics/20110729-debt-matrix.html

Hat tip +Robert Quigley for the link.

So, my understanding is that the only posts that should show up in my main Stream are those created by people I've placed in a circle. Is that correct? If so, why do posts by people that are nto in a circle show up?

Note, some of these people used to be in a "Who Are You" circle, so I could occasionally check it out, but I got sick of that traffic crowding out the people I am interested in, so I deleted the circle.

Thoughts?

Kicked off the download of Lion. Hopefully by the time we're done running errands it'll be ready to install.

This is yet another example of how bandwidth caps/limits will strangle consumers if they do take hold at companies like AT&T and TimeWarner. The future is in bits, not atoms.

This could make life easier.
googleplusplus_default_circle

GooglePlusPlus Default Circle - extension / userscript for Google+ (aka Google Plus aka G+) which adds a star next to each circle stream name. The star can be clicked to set or unset one circle stream as your default. When a default is set, going to the Stream view (which is an aggregate of all your circles) you automatically get redirected to your default stream.

Install: http://go.wittman.org/ays9


Effectively, you can make one of your circles as the new everything you want to see by default based on one circle not all circles.

Fork it (github): https://github.com/wittman/googleplusplus_default_circle

So...is there a way to view the stream, while filtering out Circles that you don't want included in it?
