The Theory of Everything opens November 7.
MetaPro: 15 times the screen of Google Glass
A project to capture a small snippet of the lives and the world from the perspective of everyone here on G+. Everyone will take a picture of their small piece of the world on the 29th Feb 2012 and share it with the whole G+ community. This will create one never before seen photographic record of what the world looked like on one specific day in time. A record that forms a kind of time capsule that we can use to look back on one frozen moment in time.
How do I get Involved?
On 29th Feb 2012 Take a Picture (or several)
Upload that picture(s) to Google+
Share your picture(s) publicly
Include the tag: #G+LeapYearDayProject
+ Mention this page
Once your picture is public fill in this very short form to help us keep track of all the submissions: Click Here for the form
What should the picture be of?
Absolutely anything, as long as it meets the terms of service of Google+ But if you want some inspiration please use any of the Daily Photography Themes
The picture doesn't have to be some glorious ground-breaking event. The idea is to simply capture something going on around you at any point on that day.
Can I upload a video?
Yes you can, but try to keep it under 1 minute. Although we would also prefer photos
Do I need to be a professional photographer?
No, this is for anyone to partake in
At everyone post a photo showing something that expresses you, how you see your world or G+. Choose a specific time or just snap off a quick shot. Geo-Tag it so we can see where everyone is from (This is entirely optional).
Have fun, no rules except, good taste, legal, and work safe please!
G+ LeapYear Day in the Life of G+ Community Photography Project*
I'm posting this here as much as a note-to-self as anything else but that gave me a few new resources I'm needing for work as well as a few ideas for new tools to hopefully increase productivity.
Hive is the one I'm most curious about, they claim to give you free unlimited cloud storage space when the likes of Google only give you 15GB for free so how do they afford all that space, I wonder... Is anyone here using them?
The robot is called Jibo. It can recognize faces, relay texts and phone calls, take pictures and video, and facilitate video chats (the other person's face shows up on the screen).
The woman is Cynthia Breazeal, the director of the Personal Robots group at MIT’s Media Lab and the woman who developed the emotional robot Kismet. The project is also being developed and backed by Todd Pack, who created robots for iRobot; Roberto Piericcini, who worked for IBM in Watson Research Labs; and many other similarly notable people.
Is this the future of home robotics?

Today I'm at MIT attending the MIT/Sloan event "Big Data: The Management Revolution". gave a great introduction explaining why they think big data is a genuine change in the way businesses will be managed, and presented some research that shows higher productivity from "data driven organizations".
Currently, we're listening to a data science panel featuring , Claudia Perlich, and Tom Davenport. Interesting issues have come up, including:
* the classic data science vs domain expertise question: the general conclusion was that you need domain knowledge to understand how to ask questions and which attacks to take to solve them, even if the final work is purely algorithmic.
* nobody sees much to be done about the data scientist shortage for the next 5-10 years, despite actions being taken to remedy it.
