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)

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. ...

GIF Artwork: I’m In Love with Blingy Lemur in a Suit

Posted by:

As I was working on this case study about how Pinterest uses Redis.
By the end, I was so inspired that I decided to bling up a little badge.

Still, I am very happy with the result.
It was voted off the original post, but, in my heart, this little guy really deserves to live out there on the inter-nizzle.
IMHO.

Comments are certainly welcome! :)

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 ...

my life purpose exercise worksheet

Posted by:

In having dialogues with many people about the life purpose exercise I followed, I decided to post my personal version.  This took about 20 minutes.  I started listing a bunch of stuff that meant something to me…stuff that I could feel good about being committed to.  Then I started combining and re-arranging.  And yes, it made me cry.
