What kind of pattern do you typically use to calibrate and verify your cnc router? I am planning to do grids of various sizes (and verify it with a caliper), but I guess I could do more.

A lot of people have asked me to respond to +Paul Graham’s piece about income inequality. Here it is. I suspect that this is just one more step in a long discussion that we will be having.
Before he published his essay on inequality, Paul Graham sent it to me for comment. I sent him some quick impressions an…

This is how I usually evaluate startup ideas. What do you think about it?
A few simple questions to ask when you are going to evaluate the potential of a startup idea, the company and their product.

My colleagues gave this talk about our work. Yay!
 
Had the opportunity to give the day two keynote for the Dart Summit this year.

Science. It is always great to know how the world works.
 
Oh, we'll just slingshot it around a few planets to gain speed and rendezvous with the comet... easy.

Science, it works. As a bonus, check out the photos from Nasa: https://www.flickr.com/photos/europeanspaceagency/sets/72157638315605535/

I have an issue with my Shapeoko 2, please help me to debug it: during my first real cut, it has jumped about 10mm on the X-axis. I've also recorded video that demonstrates a tremble (during a dry-run). What could have been the cause?

I was thinking of:
- stepper motor issue (either the control, the motor itself)
- the belt may be loose (but it also appeared on Z-axis movement too)
- the wood has some inconsistency (but it also appeared on dry run)

Any idea how to debug this?

This article is about innovation and how products should be developed. Let me know if you find that useful. 
A collection of best practices for product developer teams. I've found these methods working really well at Google and other Silicon Valley companies, and they can be adopted easily.

Big news for machine learning R&D and applications!
 
Open Source Release of TensorFlow

I'm very excited to announce the open source release of the TensorFlow machine learning library that I and many others at Google have been building.

This blog post gives an overview:
  http://googleresearch.blogspot.com/2015/11/tensorflow-googles-latest-machine_9.html

The web site has a number of tutorials and documentation about the system:
  http://tensorflow.org

The source is on GitHub:
  https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow

You might also be interested in the whitepaper we've prepared that describes TensorFlow in more detail:
  http://tensorflow.org/whitepaper2015.pdf

We'd love to hear what people think.

It all started as a very small disagreement on how to call certain fields, and it eventually grew into a reasonable naming guideline that I've always missed. Strongly recommended to read even if you are not working with Dart.
 
numPages or pageCount? toSomething() or convertToSomething()? The new API Naming Guide lays out the guidelines that Dart engineers use when choosing API names.

#dartlang
Choose good names to make your API easier to understand.

One of the many reasons why front-end performance is hard to do right.
 
At first glance, HTML5/CSS seems to have amazing capabilities for next gen UIs: any of the 115 or so style-able properties can be animated. Yet, in modern browsers only two properties, transform, and opacity, can be mutated at 60fps. In this talk, I explain why thats the case, and ask the question, "Should we demand better?"

Yay for +Paul Rohde and +Ted Sander! Big web applications, big problems, really great suggestions and solutions. And of course: #dart  language for the modern web.

Some of it is... Of course if you are dealing with something deeper like say a crazy powerful Table.... That is definitely not a piece of cake ;-)
