Free tools online
 
Fantastic list of free resources for all sorts of things across the web

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?

Novel. Some of these takes required precision flight paths. Skilled pilot. 
If you're a droner, you've probably already taken some dronies -- and didn't even realize that was a thing.

Microsoft's HoloLens announced yesterday. I believe there is demand for devices to enhance specific tasks (think of installing your Google Nest thermostat with assistance from a remote HVAC expert guiding your wiring)  Finding ways to provide remote assistance directly to your field of view. This VR stuff is going to be exciting to watch.  (i.e. Oculus Rift, Magic Leap, etc)
Transform your world with holograms. Microsoft HoloLens brings high-definition holograms to life in your world.

Definitely worth considering and relatively inexpensive. (Assuming you take the risk)
 
This woman is leading a project for a $499 home robot. Did she get it right?

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? 

Watch the video and judge for yourself:

The right spark was present today. Great speakers, great passion and interaction.  A true exception to the usual conferences one can attend.
 
Big Data: the management revolution

Today I'm at MIT attending the MIT/Sloan event "Big Data: The Management Revolution". +Erik Brynjolfsson 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 +Rachel Schutt, 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.

If you saw Corning's vision for the future (A day made of Glass) last year, then this is the updated version. To be honest, I kinda like the original better. Probably because I was totally blown away the first video. Or is it because less is more? What do you think? I do like having the explanations provided (i.e.directors cut) http://youtu.be/Cws13HbzkuU

These augmented reality glasses plan to compete directly against Google Glasses. (which are considered just a simple "second screen").  It's going to be an interesting couple of years as these wearable concepts are adopted, leapfrogged, killed off, etc. Hat tip +Robert Scoble

Our collective capabilities via technology continue to expand. I'd like to participate in this experiment nevertheless I'm always cognizant of the phrase "with power comes responsibility."
 
What is this Leap Year Project?

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?
Simple:
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
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dDI5ZENuRnEtN2MtZW1NRjRjdFlZUnc6MQ

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

More Information
At +G+ LeapYear 2012 - Day in the life of G+ 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!
