We owe this pioneering woman a lot. From the article: "Unlike the schools of the Ivy League, descended from medieval traditions of academia, the comparatively young MIT was founded to bring science to industry, the arts, and agriculture. This, Nelsen said, gave it a head start on the coming boom of entrepreneurialism — and over the ensuing years, Nelsen’s office grew to become the standard-bearer in the emerging field of tech transfer."
Lita Nelsen of the Technology Licensing Office at MIT became an evangelist for tech transfer and a mentor to her counterparts around the world.

Overcoming a critical OLTP DBMS bottleneck on multi- and many-core systems.
 
New on the blog: Current/future multi-core and many-core systems are a natural for large-scale, highly parallel transaction processing applications. But conventional DBMSs still scale poorly beyond a few cores. Intel S&TC researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and +MIT CSAIL have been working intensively on solving this problem on a variety of fronts.

Check out their latest work: a data-driven timestamp management algorithm that overcomes a key bottleneck in OLTP DBMSs, achieving up to 92% higher throughput than prior algorithms under a variety of workload conditions. The team will present their paper on this work at the upcoming +ACM SIGMOD 2016 conference. The research team comprises PhD candidate Xiangyao Yu of CSAIL; Professor +Andy Pavlo of Carnegie Mellon; and Professors Daniel Sanchez and Srinivas Devadas of CSAIL.
By Xiangyao Yu, MIT CSAIL; Andrew Pavlo, Carnegie Mellon; Daniel Sanchez and Srinivas Devadas, MIT CSAIL. The TicToc algorithm enables scalable and high-performing concurrency control for future multi- and many-core systems. Large-scale, highly parallel transaction processing systems can be ...

90-year-old mathematician Ivo Babuska, a professor at the University of Texas, is challenging conventional wisdom with his long, vibrant career. Read why leading-edge mathematics - and people like Dr. Babuska - are more relevant than ever.
Young brains may be brasher, but some ideas emerge only with the deep insight of a long career.

Which state has the worst drivers - Massachusetts or New York?
New +CSAIL MIT-spawned app (EverDrive) + big data may decide once and for all in a competitive "drive-down."
Arguments over whether Massachusetts or New York has the worst drivers can now be settled with hard data. A new app called EverDrive, developed by MIT

Congratulations to +Ian Shakil and the team at Augmedix. A true visionary who saw (no pun intended) the tremendous potential for Google Glass in applications where the symphonic coordination of head, hand and data are absolutely critical to success.

CEO succession strategy? Check. PR succession strategy? Not so much. Why having the latter could be just as important. http://thefussymarketer.blogspot.com/2010/07/pr-succession-strategy-do-you-have-one.html#.Vx3_P_krKHs
Research finds three key reasons boards fail at CEO succession planning.

Lots of interesting Big Data research coming out of the University of Washington. The latest: how to give high-performance computing users - like scientists, who need the compute firepower for crunching their data - ad hoc query processing. The answer: build it into HPC languages. Read on.
 
New on the ISTC blog: High-performance computing (HPC) is traditionally about compute. But people who depend on HPC - such as scientists - for data-intensive computation needs also want what everyone else does today: the ability to query lots of data freely and get answers fast. ISTC Researchers Brandon Myers and +Bill Howe of the University of Washington write about a new technique for delivering this: bringing ad hoc query processing into HPC languages.
By Brandon Myers and Bill Howe, University of Washington. High performance computing (HPC) is traditionally about compute, but its users have data management problems, too. In a recent paper, we demonstrated a promising technique for bringing ad hoc query processing into HPC languages.

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.
