Recommended Users Spotlight: M Sinclair Stevens

+M Sinclair Stevens (intellectual)

A little backstory:

I've been lucky to be able to interact with many new users in my time on G+. Invariably, the conversation turns to how to create content... one of the many questions I get is: "Who do you read?" or even another version of that same question, "Who are your favorite users?". There are a lot of fantastic users who do a lot of great things. I find my inspiration for blogs and conversation topics from everywhere; the community is fantastic. 

I tend to split the G+ users whom I follow into a few different groups (I still need to find a place for everyone!). One of the groups I have is the "Intellectuals" group. These are people who have what I consider to be producers of rich, intellectual content - if I have writer's block - this is my go to Circle for post ideas.

M's unique perspective is reflected in his well-curated content library...

M Sinclair Stevens has been Following me, and I Following him since my GPlusTips profile days (listen to me talk about these days as if they were apart of some sort of pre-historical time out of mind - it was early July, let's be honest here). He was responsible for some of my earliest interactions that extended beyond my posting tips and his interactions encouraged me to be more than just a content aggregator. M, as I'll call him, has been very busy -- and if you check out the About page of his Profile, you'll see that M has an extensive collection of articles on Content Sharing (Inflow and Outflow as he calls it), Circles and Social Networking, the Google+ identity issue and how it relates to your profile, and Netiquette.

Basically, M has a book here.


He has over 20 essays assigned to different topics. His collection of essays, I would say, are essential to the enterprising Google+ user. They are advanced in their scope and a useful read for all G+ users. Fortuitously, his Netiquette section contains useful advice for all realms of social media interaction.

The M Sinclair Stevens Micro-Community

First, I want to define what I mean when I say "micro-community". Micro-community, in this context, is the community that is built around an individual user or specific topic. People in these communities are not solely tied to this user or topic, but are consistent interactors with the aforementioned user or topic.

The people of M's micro-community add an incredible level of depth to the original post and often yield a discussion worthy of another post entirely! Why? Well - M doesn't just let the conversation happen and he watches with a discerning eye, but is an active part of that conversation -- maybe the most active part of that conversation -- this may seem like an obvious thing to do... be involved in your own post, that is... but I've seen a lot of big name users just let the conversation happen without them. They post an idea and they say, "K, talk" and then they leave and don't make a reappearance.

What he lacks is an audience...

This may seem to be a contradiction because the previous section specifically talked about M's audience. Well, the things that M shares, I believe, are worthy of mass attention. His commentary is valuable not only in its scope (as mentioned) but also because of his ability to pinpoint the subtleties of any issue - the ones that usually get glossed over (I feel) in those larger conversations. 

That's why I chose M for this week's spotlight. He needs more eyes on his work. He needs to be read.

    It seems that Sinclair has quite an emphatic micro-community. G+ certainly offers certain excellent features and I have learnt to use it recently.There are many people who deserve to be in spotlight and hopefully I will come across such people and would definitely inform.
