The +ACM SIGMOD 2017 Student Research Competition is now open - abstracts are due November 18. This is a totally new, competitive event - not a poster or a programming competition. An awesome opportunity for undergrad and grad students to showcase their database/data management research in a real-world research setting.

SIGMOD 2017 SRC Co-Chairs are Professors Alvin Cheung of the University of Washington and Intel S&TC PI Aaron Elmore of the University of Chicago.

Why Silicon Valley is "an absolute candy store" for economists.
The promise of big data and big paychecks is drawing some of academia’s top economists to study consumer behavior for tech companies like Airbnb, Amazon and Uber.

New on the blog: How do you do effective analytics on data that pushes the edge of the envelope on volume, velocity AND variety? With Internet of Things data, human data inspection is essential but literally impossible. Meet MacroBase, a new kind of analytic monitoring engine for the Internet of Things that prioritizes human attention in large-scale IoT data streams. ISTC researchers are using MacroBase with our BigDAWG polystore architecture to analyze oceanographic data.

Post by MacroBase lead author Peter Bailis (a professor at Stanford University and researcher in its InfoLab & Future Data Systems group) and ISTC co-founder +Sam Madden of +CSAIL MIT. You can download MacroBase here https://github.com/stanford-futuredata/macrobase
By Peter Bailis, Stanford Infolab, and Sam Madden, MIT CSAIL. An increasing proportion of data today is generated by automated processes, sensors and devices—collectively called the Internet of Things (IoT). Inexpensive hardware, widespread access to communication networks, and decreased storage ...

WSJ reporter Alexandra Wolfe interviews her famous father.

"'The heart of my thinking is that language is man-made,' he tells me. 'It’s not a result of evolution, and it is only language that enables human beings to control nature.'”
The author’s daughter interviews him about his latest book—and about stirring up trouble and getting noticed

Like all memes, "Uber for [X]" is finally losing steam.

"What happened to Washio is hardly unique. After having their moment in the sun between 2013 and 2015, faddish on-demand start-ups are now facing a moment of reckoning, and those that can’t overcome the brutal unit economics are closing their doors."

The hits keep coming for the brutally low-margin, on-demand economy.

Study on how news affects our beliefs - and why polarization, even in the face of hard facts, can be so persistent. Climate change is one example.

"In the case of information about ourselves — about how attractive others perceive us to be, or how likely we are to succeed — people normally alter their beliefs more in response to good news. In certain circumstances, that will also be true for political issues — as in the case of weak climate change believers. But at times, good political news can threaten our deepest commitments, and we will give it less weight.
Even accurate information can increase political polarization.

Minimally disruptive medicine for chronic conditions could bring an end to the need to be a "professional patient" (i.e., your second job).

"Minimally disruptive medicine focuses on ways to empower patients through communication with their doctor. [Mayo Clinic Doctor] Montori says doctors can sometimes forget that patients have lives outside of caring for their chronic illness."

Tech startups, such as +Twine Health with its Collaborative Care platform (spun out of +MIT Media Lab), are creating solutions. 
Living with a chronic disease can feel overwhelming when trying to keep up with treatment. However, some aspects could be improved simply by creating

Story
Tagline
Thinker, Marketing Writer & Creative-Communications Problem-Solver for Businesses
Introduction
Janice L. Brown specializes in using communications to position technology ventures, launch new companies and products, and develop industry thought leader programs. I have worked with technology companies since 1979 (beginning with Data General, Prime Computer and Computervision) and with health care, biotechnology and medical devices businesses since 1978. I've  been involved with Internet marketing and social media since 1990 (bulletin boards on CompuServe), and have helped launch online communities, a search engine and a browser.
 
When I'm not working with entrepreneurs, I am thinking about working with entrepreneurs - and sometimes reading, writing for personal enjoyment, cooking, watching films, learning languages, hiking and traveling to places that require at least two airplanes to get there. I also make citizen's arrests for poor grammar and evasive language.
Bragging rights
I am the luckiest consultant in the world. I have worked with some terrific entrepreneurs to help launch several dozen start-ups. My work has won numerous awards. More importantly, many of my clients stay with me for years, bringing me into their next ventures. And often becoming friends.
