Great Quote ! And, there are so many corollaries!

Posted by:

“Rudeness is a weak man’s imitation of strength,” said Eric Hoffer.

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 ...

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?
