Mechanical mosquito!
 
Is this a mosquito?

Nope! It's a mockup of an insect spy drone that will probably be real...eventually.

Such a device could be controlled from a great distance and is equipped with a camera, microphone. It could land on you and then use it's needle to take a DNA sample with the pain of a mosquito bite. Or it could inject a micro RFID tracking device under your skin.

It could land on you and stay, so that you take it with you into your home. Or it could fly into a bulding thru a window. 

There are well-funded research projects working on such devices with such capabilities.

The device pictured isn't real, but only a CGI mock up [http://www.photosfan.com/insects/]

Read "The Transparent Society" by David Brin.

In case you missed it from earlier, this is my list of the best Google doodles from 2011. It's a single page, so you can easily scroll through and see all the notable ones. There are links to where the interactive ones can still be played with at Google itself.

Worse Than Failure

I'm sure that by now you've read this story about Maya, a 4-year-old girl whose only way to communicate is through a tablet app that has been pulled from the only store where it could be sold, because of a patent dispute.

I'm very upset at that situation.

I think that letting something like that happen is a deep failure of the technology industry.

We've let one company patent a $15,000 product that doesn't work, and use that as a legal argument to stop a competitor from making a product that costs less than $1,000 and does work. You're not supposed to be able to patent inventions that don't work, and yet their product doesn't work and is protected by patents. That's nonsense.

We've let another company decide that it can cut access to applications that users desperately need, because they don't want to risk getting involved in some lawsuit.

We've let lawyers take over the technology industry. Lawyers now decide everything. How a product can look. How it can be called. Where it can be sold. How long people can keep it. How it can be used.

I'm upset that there could be even better solutions for Maya, but that instead of innovating the people who are in the best position to help Maya will be fighting court battles. I'm upset that what I work on could be helping Maya, but that lawyers keep getting in the way and holding me back by years.

An overview about Google Privacy Policy changes and why you shouldn't be afraid of this new change.
Google updated its privacy policy on Tuesday. It replaced more than 60 separate policies with a single one that treats Google users and their data as the same across all Google services. Reactions were shrill. "The End of 'Don't Be Evil'" was trotted out for the umpteenth time. The Washington Post quoted privacy experts saying, "There is no way anyone expected this." My, that sounds terrible! But it's not true. Everyone watching should have seen...

HOW TO FIND THE MOST INTERESTING PEOPLE ON GOOGLE+

Now... we all know that if somebody has a lot of followers, that doesn't necessarily mean that his or her posts will also interest YOU. And besides this, there are a lot of interesting Google+ users out there that could bring a lot of value to you, but they don't have so many followers. So, how do you find them? Here are some easy steps to find exactly what interests YOU the most!

1. ADD SOME CIRCLES OF YOUR INTEREST
For that, you have two options. First option is you go to http://goo.gl/PEqsM. There you'll find the Google+ Shared Circles Database started by +Chris Porter that has over 400 circles shared on Google+ (50,000 names). Add just the circles that are in a category that interests you.

The second option is to go on a google+ directory and look in the categories or locations that interests you. I talk more about some directories here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/106393478695568433143/posts/a82Fw1dgzzL

To add lots of people in your circles from google+ directories with just one click using Circle+ read this: https://plus.google.com/u/0/106393478695568433143/posts/1pXAzjTohXu

2. UNFOLLOW INACTIVE USERS
For that, you can use a chrome extension, called Uncircle+ made by +Ehsan Ahmadi Gharacheh. I talk more about it here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/106393478695568433143/posts/P581zSCQ5Sm

3. EXCLUDE NOISY PEOPLE
If you have noisy people that post very often and sometimes you don't want to see their posts, you can add them to a special circle called "noisy people" and exclude that circle from your mainstream using an extension.

This way, you won't see their posts any more. When you want to see their posts again, just include them back or take a look at that specific circle. I talk more about how to exclude circles from your mainstream using Plus Minus here: https://plus.google.com/106393478695568433143/posts/jN9eoucKvDw

4. MAKE DOZENS OF VALUABLE CONNECTIONS
For that you can use the Gather, Rinse, And Repeat method by +Dustin W. Stout which goes like this:

a. Start by following people who you believe to be “Thought Leaders“. You can find them through the google plus directories that I gave you and place them in a circle that is labeled accordingly.

b. Throughout the day visit the stream for this circle looking for interesting posts. When you find something interesting, leave a comment or +1 the post.

c. Circle everyone who +1′d, or commented on that same post easily using the Circle+ extension that I gave to you earlier. The circle you place them into is a temporary one that serves as a trial period.

The circle will only be active for a week, if anyone from that circle comments on one of your posts, or makes a solid connection with you, they will then get placed into one of your permanent circles. This is the gather phase.

d. At the end of the week, you delete the temporary circle. Anyone who has not been actively engaged, or never made a connection with you is removed from your circles entirely, and the others are safe in one of your permanent circles. You have effectively “rinsed” your circles.

e. Repeat. Just keep doing it on a week to week basis, and you will be constantly finding new, interesting people!
