The only reason coders' computers work better than non-coders' computers is coders know computers are schizophrenic little children with auto-immune diseases and we don't beat them when they're bad

I hope you will forgive a deviation from my normal topical rules to offer a bit of humor. The Japanese below is actually a pretty common admonition to the effect of "please do not dump trash here". I think the mistranslation is better---and perfect for office environments. So... I made a PDF. Feel free to grab it, share it, print it out, and post it wherever the warning might be appropriate.

Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing

Recently, the New York Times published Why Are There Still So Few Women in Science? (http://goo.gl/50GJDs), and article which, in part, explored a variety of inherent biases that may discourage young women from pursuing careers in science and other technical fields. Although women in technical and scientific careers remain underrepresented, these biases are increasingly being acknowledged and addressed, with programs designed to remedy them.

Last week in Minneapolis, more than 4000 women in Computer Science gathered at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (http://goo.gl/fShdf), a conference designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront, increase visibility for the contributions of women in computing, and foster networking and mentoring for junior women in technical fields. 
 
Over 160 Googlers attended, including VP of Google[x] +Megan Smith  who gave a keynote titled, "Passion, Adventure and Heroic Engineering", and senior executives from Google, Facebook, Amazon, and other industry leaders attended the Tech Exec Forum to talk about how to advance technical women in the workplace. 

Watch a new documentary video (linked below), which debuted at the conference, to learn more about the life and vision of Computer Scientist Anita Borg and her influence on the creation of the Anita Borg Institute (http://goo.gl/20T5hV), the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, and the Systers (http://goo.gl/7APaZ8), the world’s largest email community of technical women in computing.

She rings me up for $313. I resist the urge to unwrap and swallow whole another $6 truffle in protest. Barely. Instead, I reach for my wallet, flash her a quiet smile and say, "Namaste."

"In 1999, Ray Kurzweil published a book entitled The Age of Spiritual Machines: When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence. Much as I enjoy Kurzweil’s writing and ideas, I find this a bad title for a non-fiction book about Artificial Intelligence. The last thing we would ever want intelligent machines to be would be spiritual."

The #Singularity is a technological explosion of intelligence. #ArtificialIntelligence #machinelearning #robotics #3Dprinting and #StemCells will converge to create utopia. Everything will be free. #Immortality and eternal youth will be available to all people. Old people will rewind their age to any age they desire. All diseases will be eradicated.

It can be difficult for people to foresee this happening because typically people are unaware of how our rate of progress is accelerating. People wrongly think this century they will see the equivalent of 100 years of progress, similar to the speed of progress during the 20th century, but the reality is this century we will see at least 20,000 years worth of progress based on the rate of progress in the year 2001.

No later than 2045 the rate of progress will be so fast there will be a massive explosion of intelligence, which means we will have the artificial brainpower to solve any problem such as faster-than-light space travel.

In this future the majority of people will have left Earth to explore strange new worlds, it is a future where nobody needs to work, nobody suffers, and all governments have become obsolete. It is completely new stage in evolution. It is total freedom! The Singularity is the point where we become masters of reality, we will control our natural world with supreme skill.

If you are interested in the Singularity please share this post so that other people can become aware of the amazing future we are heading towards.

Make sure you add +Singularity 2045 to your circles that you can discover the latest news about AI, nanotechnology, quantum computing, virtual reality, augmented reality, and other similar topics.

The rental complex is beautiful. There are three pools with one heated and two jacuzzis. There are 6 tennis courts and a workout room. The staff had always been nice to me but my wife thinks they suck. So that is why they get a very good instead of an excellent.
