Eg har gjort det til vane å gå på Technoport (iallfall hovudkonferansen) her i Trondheim, og i år var det påfallande kor mange av oppstartsbedriftene i pitche-konkurransen som etter mi meining var high-impact. Der var AI, fleire kommersialiseringar av forskning frå NTNU, og så vidare.

Eg er likevel einig i tankegangen bak det han seier, og eg trur vel at grunderar som driv med high-impact innovasjon også vil finne det endå meir motiverande enn endå ein chatte-app.

Interessante diskusjonar, men eg vil tru at når det gjeld serviceyrker (slik som manikyr, frisør, etc), så vil marknaden fortsatt vere stor for menneskeleg arbeidskraft sidan eg vil tru at mange nok av kundane heller vil forholde seg til mennesker enn til robotar. Det vert sjølvsagt eit anna spørsmål når dei vert så avanserte at vi ikkje ser forskjell :)

Mega Pong

Trondheim Maker Faire is coming up this weekend, and it turns out a promotion of proportions were needed. Rockheim is our version of Seattle's Experience Music something, and is lit by a very large number of LEDs.

Very well put.

Thought for the day -- if you oppose modern genetic modification of food crops, you should be aware of the following:

Many common crop varietals have been produced using what I'll call "old-school genetic modification". In this process, we take a plant's germ cells and beat the hell out of them with mutagenic chemicals and/or highly ionizing radiation (e.g., gamma radiation from nuclear reactions). This creates lots of completely random mutations in the plant's DNA, and you simply cross your fingers that some of them will be beneficial. This has been common since around the '20s, and includes many crops currently labeled "organic".

Preferring that process to modern, surgical genetic modification can be thought of as preferring being shot with a shotgun to having endoscopic laser surgery. Sure, the shotgun might accidentally fix something, but...

Awesome ultra wide range, ultra efficient sound receiver/sender made with graphene. Although the applications outside of human hearing range are awesome enough, it seems to me that the efficiency of the loudspeaker portion will be very useful in consumer products.

Hugs and Science

Very nice and positive writeup on how Marit (that is behind Hugs and Science) came to be a science writer rather than a scientist. And the story behind it is well worth a read too, especially the Lenski letters (on Conservapedia no less).

Interesting discussion on Trump and trolling from my favorite economics thinker Umair Haque.

Well said. I've never feared that Trump would even come close to making it out if the primary, and this article captures the reason perfectly.

Kickstarter goes benefit

I was not aware of these possibilities in corporate America, but this is one awesome move by Kickstarter. (And the charter is awesome too.)

Totally agree with this sentiment, although I doubt anyone rich enough follow me, for my opinion to have an effect. :P
 
What if today’s billionaires actually “call their shots” and commit to fixing something big? Create an impact pledge. http://buff.ly/1NLQoAC

No shit.

Is an armed society a peaceful society? New research suggests the opposite: Firearm assaults, firearm robberies, firearm homicide and overall homicide are more common in states with more guns.

It's all just blowing smoke and obscuring reasonable discussion of real solutions.

Story
Tagline
Programmer, geek of most things and believing in technology to improve the world
Introduction
A youth spent by the ocean in rough weather, teenage years by the computer dreaming about a career as a games programmer/artist/producer.

Studies then taught me that computing in general can have at least as exciting challenges, not the least when combined with technologies of the analog kind (radio, satellite, sensors, etc).

I am a fan of Liverpool FC.

Research is boring to do, but I love the results, no matter the field.

Politics are damn interesting, just so sad that most politicians are proffesionals at politics, and not at the actual topics at hand.

Space is the final frontier, and maybe I can visit (safely) at some point in the far future.

I believe in a future mightily improved by technology, maybe akin to the technological singularity. I hope to help that along by writing awesome software, whether as an employee, consultant or entrepreneaur - or via open source.
