Industrial Revolutions: The First, Second, Third, and Fourth

Posted by:

“The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production. The Second used electric power to create mass production. The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production. Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third, the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.” (Source: Constellation Research)

Wow – There are Quite a Few Unicorns – VC, Angel Investing, Startups – Do these valuations make economic sense? :)

Posted by:

Not that too many people care, but I think they do, mostly :). I mean, when you look at the fact that there is a fundamental economic shift happening.Information is becoming more valuable than tangible assets, products, services, and even money (to a certain extent).

“There are currently 141 unicorn companies globally. Recently, Mark Suster and the team at Upfront Ventures published their Venture Outlook 2016 report, which highlighted the insane pace at which billion-dollar companies are being created. With this in mind, ...

Another Perspective on Computing: Computation, Communication, Coordination, Recollection, Automation, Evaluation, Design

Posted by:

This article is a very interesting way to look at computing.

“We analyzed many computing technologies to identify the principles on which they are based, and we studied how what aspects of computation are influencing other fields.  From this, we concluded that computing principles can be grouped into seven categories:

Computation (meaning and limits of computation)

Communication (reliable data transmission)

Coordination (cooperation among networked entities)

Recollection (storage and retrieval of information)

Automation (meaning and limits ...

Presentations vs Acting and Theater for Inbound Marketing, Content Marketing, and Marketing Operations

Posted by:

When creating content, when do we reach “good enough” versus putting in the extra time to make it great?

Many moons ago, I was working on a presentation for an event and would also be distributed online. Upon reaching a milestone, I had to sit back and wonder about our goal…what was the most effective way to get there…the optimal way? Was the output and preparation A++? Should it be? Of course, perfectionism is in my nature and probably a personality flaw. They say perfectionists are obsessive. ...

Phrases, Idioms, Sayings: You Can Lead a Horse…

Posted by:

There is an old adage about leading a horse to water, but not being able to make the horse drink.

For some reason, this saying has stuck with me. For several years, it kept coming up. The explorer in me kept asking, “Why and why not?” So, I finally added a part to make it work, to make it complete. After using it in conversation dozens of times, I have not run across anyone who heard the add-on before. So, there ...

Comparisons between Brain Science and Computer Science

Posted by:

For the past three or four years, I have had strong fascination between brain science and computer science.

Roughly half my work time is spent writing about the significance of the largest and most current technology shifts in the world – big data, PaaS, open source, data science, mobile, social, local, agile methods, and distributed computing. Over 2-3 years, I’ve contributed to somewhere around 200 articles in the space for one of the most innovative “start-up” companies on the planet ...

Lesson 9 – Context is Key

Posted by:

Context is key for learning. You cannot truly learn by listening or watching or reading, you must do it to understand. The teacher also cannot fully teach unless you practice.

Ving Tsun Lesson 7 and 8

Posted by:

Practicing the form is about repetition, getting the muscles to do what you want, stretching the tendons, maintaining a focus on the centerline for efficiency, keeping proper balance in the stance, learning to deal with many things at once, and learning a feedback loop.

Exercises for punches and blocks focus on blocks first. These start off working to get the brain and eyes and hands to coordinate better. They turn into a mechanism for feeling. Using your antenna of touch over ...
