EdX is an enterprise of MIT and Harvard University. EdX is building an open-source online learning platform and web portal for online learning; HarvardX, MITx and BerkeleyX currently offer classes online for free.
learners who demonstrate mastery of subjects can earn a certificate of completion. Certificates will be issued by edX under the name of the underlying "X University" from where the course originated, i.e. HarvardX,MITx or BerkeleyX. For the courses in Fall 2012, those certificates will be free. There is a plan to charge a modest fee for certificates in the future.I'm signed up for 6.002x, Circuits and Electronics from MITx and CS169.1x, Software as a Service from BerkeleyX.
"the band developed the M&M's demand as a means of checking whether the venue was properly honoring the terms of the contract to their satisfaction. Subsequently, if the bowl was missing, or if there were brown M&M's present, the band members would have reason to suspect that the venue might have cut corners or not properly honored legitimate technical and safety concerns listed within the contract." wikipedia (David Lee Roth tells the story here)Van Halen's brown M&M's test is applicable to software development groups, from programmers through to the rest of the Development Abstraction Layer. But instead of brown M&M's, the fitness of conference room presentations will be our barometer.
Hopkinson's law is a counterpart to Ohm's law used in magnetic circuits. The law is named after the British electrical engineer, John Hopkinson. It states thatwhere is the magnetomotive force (MMF) across a magnetic element, is the magnetic flux through the magnetic element, and is the magnetic reluctance of that element.
"Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Mary—the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there's a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trim tab.
It's a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trim tab. Society thinks it's going right by you, that it's left you altogether. But if you're doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go.So I said, call me Trim Tab."—Buckminster Fuller
|The ACROS Fukuoka building in Japan is another application of the green roof concept|
"Eco Roof is roof-top greening system for corrugated steel roof, which is consisted of tray boards made of recycled plastic raw materials. With intention to have light-weight roof-top system, we adopted the plant sedum sarmentosum bunge, which grows with no frequent watering and maintenance. It not only lowers surface temperature of the roofs, but is an indispensable mechanism to prevent the Urban Heat Island (UHI) phenomenon in metropolitan area."
The obsession with Simplicity is what separates Apple from other technology companies. It’s what helped Apple recover from near death in 1997 to become the most valuable company on Earth in 2011.
"Our biological computing device is based on the 75-year-old design by the English mathematician, cryptanalyst, and computer scientist Alan Turing... Our device is based on the model of a finite state automaton, which is a simplified version of the Turing machine." (source)
“Imagine that you had really cheap video recorders everywhere... Just paint walls with video recorders. And for the most part they just record and no one ever goes to them. But if something really good or really bad happens you want to go and scrape the wall and see what you got. So something that’s molecular is so much more energy efficient and compact that you can consider applications that were impossible before.” (George Church via R. Alan Leo)Here is video of Church and his team:
I refined this slightly—my theory is that A players hire people even better than themselves. It’s clear, though, that B players hire C players so they can feel superior to them, and C players hire D players. If you start hiring B players, expect what Steve called “the bozo explosion” to happen in your organization. - Guy KawasakiDoes your organization believe in this? If it does then learning from those who have been successful at hiring and keeping A players is a top priority.
