"TeamPage 6.1 Spring 2015 Release focuses on improvements to the Project Management suite, including a new 'Burn-up Chart' for tracking progress; user-defined interactive tables to dynamically summarize activity; and better tools for understanding the big picture for a project or milestone. This release also includes major under-the-hood improvements to TeamPage's forms SDK to make it easier for developers to create custom forms, or customized variations of standard forms."

1 April 2015 Stanford world premier "Set simultaneously in the 1960s and today – with Rouse portraying Engelbart and Neill playing English – The Demo includes re-enactments of the demonstration, video projections, computer-based voice processing and triggering, and Neill's interactive electro-acoustic instrument, the "mutantrumpet," a hybrid electro-acoustic instrument. Rouse and Neill employ a modern sonic palette with a score that marries electronica with operatic flourishes and minimalist vocal techniques. The typed text of the original demo serves as the libretto for the vocals and showcases Rouse's own technique of "counter-poetry," in which voices are latticed in intricate, echoing and rhythmic patterns."
The Demo, which will be performed at Bing Concert Hall in April, examines the life and work of tech visionary Douglas Engelbart. Several free events in March and April will complement the performance.

"Whipping humanity’s ass at Fishing Derby may not seem like a particularly noteworthy achievement for artificial intelligence—nearly two decades ago, after all, I.B.M.’s Deep Blue computer beat Garry Kasparov, a chess grandmaster, at his own more intellectually aspirational game—but according to Zachary Mason, a novelist and computer scientist, it actually is. Chess, he noted, has an extremely limited “feature space”; the only information that Deep Blue needed to consider was the positions of the pieces on the board, during a span of not much more than a hundred turns. It could play to its strengths of perfect memory and brute-force computing power. But in an Atari game, Mason said, “there’s a byte or so of information per pixel” and hundreds of thousands of turns, which adds up to much more and much messier data for the DeepMind A.I. to process. In this sense, a game like Crazy Climber is a closer analogue to the real world than chess is, and in the real world humans still have the edge. Moreover, whereas Deep Blue was highly specialized, and preprogrammed by human grandmasters with a library of moves and rules, DeepMind is able to use the same all-purpose code for a wide array of games."

"The 90-minute performance incorporates original film, electronic music, computer-generated art and vocals. Both composers also perform, with Rouse taking the role of Engelbart and Neill playing Bill English, Engelbart's SRI colleague who actually built the first mouse.

Rouse, who also sings, wrote the libretto, using phrases from Engelbart's demo as opera supertitles, among them 2C ORANGES, 2D APPLES, 3 NEWS, 4 LETTUCE, 5 FRENCH BREAD, 6 BEAN SOUP.

Singers' entrances happen as the text comes on screen," explained Rouse in a recent phone interview. "When the text comes up and you hear it sung, it looks like magic. You can't figure out how they're doing this live." ...

Before creating "The Demo," the two composers, both 57 and living in the New York City area, had collaborated on a number of programs, but neither was familiar with the 1968 computer technology breakthrough.

Neill came upon a video of Engelbart's demo on the Stanford website while researching the history of the Internet for a class at New Jersey's Ramapo College, where he is an associate professor of music industry and production.

"I was completely blown away," he said. "I was just so taken not only by the content but also by the quality of the video. I found it remarkable that so much of the technology we use in our daily lives could be traced to this one event, which was essentially a type of performance."

Planning to use Engelbart's demo as a teaching tool, he also thought about "trying to make some kind of artistic work around this because I didn't think very many people knew about it. It was such a remarkable document about an event that changed the world."

Plus, "there was something about Engelbart's personality and the way he seemed to be delivering this thing" that inspired Neill. "He was so calm and relaxed, almost meditative," the composer explained. "Using technology in live performance in 2015, I know it can be harrowing. He just seemed to be so relaxed, as if he had done it a thousand times."


Based on a 1968 computer science demonstration that rocked the tech world, electronic opera "The Demo" will have its world premiere next Wednesday, April 1, at Stanford.

"Every drop of honey is truly a taste of the particular place it was harvested. The diverse flavors of honey range from fruity, floral, grassy, woody or smoky (refer to our Honey Aroma and Tasting Wheel) dependent upon the floral source and where you are in the world. I now know that commercially made honey bears do not express terroir."

"That's why I'm really proud of what we did here," he said over his cup of sake. "I'm proud of the big things, but I'm also proud of the little things we routinely did well. Do you know what made me most proud in the meal I served you? The Wagyu beef. It was perfectly cooked."

"The advantage of sous vide," someone said.

"But it wasn't sous vide!" Dufresne said. "That's the thing. It was cooked in a pan. And it had no gray on it! Do you know how hard that is? Do you know how much work that takes? Turning the beef every seven or eight seconds … And so that question you asked me before, about food and music—that's my answer: a perfect piece of Wagyu beef cooked in a pan that comes out without any gray on it. It might not be 'When the Levee Breaks,' but it's definitely 'Achilles Last Stand.' "
"When I first opened, I thought there would be 15 people in the city doing what I do."
