I'm just baffled by Coursera's addiction to the closed, rigid "course" model (and concomitant course calendar) if the result is going to be just 1% of students (262 of 28,000) who do what would be considered normal in a traditional college course (i.e. participate in the beginning, middle, and end). Surely it would be to everyone's benefit if Coursera would let go of the rigid course model and explored some other kind of presentation/participation model...? Oh, but then they would have to change their name! :-)

I'm excited to head to Google this summer to join the Google Maps and Google Now team for a great internship!

+Jason Salas: don't be too jealous.

What a great article, +Daniel Jarratt - they made it easy to understand and focused on really attention-getting features too. It prompted me to go the website also and I saw you had a blog: so now I am subscribed! Super! 
No more than 10 miles from the beach, ha ha: poor University of Oklahoma will not pass that test! :-)

New Russian bills and coins for the Olympics.
 
Russia is introducing new limited-edition currency for the Sochi Olympics. Here's a sneak preview; Russians won't see this in hand until February. It's perhaps the first time Russia has had vertically-oriented banknotes.

An analog boardgame computer from the 1960s that beats you every time. It plays Nim's game, which is where two players go back and forth picking an arbitrary number of matchsticks or marbles or any object from a group. The player who picks the last object loses. This board has plastic switches that 'remember' previous occurrences and optimizes the board's own play against your own.

SPOILER: It won't beat you if you end every turn of yours with the three 'flip-flops' in the position UP-DOWN-DOWN.

+Jeff Dean gave a great talk today on reducing latency in distributed systems, as well as the structure and applications of new models in deep learning. This was the team that got the best improvement in speech recognition in twenty years as well as an automatic YouTube cat detector.
