What is the smallest natural number that can be expressed as the sum of 10 consecutive natural numbers as well as the sum of nine consecutive natural numbers?

Virtual give away hint: The starting number of one of the sequences is stated in the question.

For those of you who weren't able to attend #io12 , here's the video of my talk on +Freebase and the Knowledge Graph.

Small hint: You can do the same for certain paired sequences of consecutive of natural numbers (CNNs) for all N/N+1, eg sum of 2 CNN = sum of 3 CNN, sum of 6 CNN = sum of 7 CNN.

After 17 years of being at IT analyst, I'm on to my fourth career as a design thinker at IBM!

I'm joining IBM Design[1], a team led by GM Phil Gilbert[2]. I'll be reporting into one of Phil's direct reports, Charlie Hill[3]. My title is Portfolio Design Lead. The team is working across IBM Software (and hopefully eventually all of IBM) to apply "design thinking" to better unify and simplify IBM's product portfolios. Here's a good description of what the IBM Design team is up to[4]. And if you’re REALLY interested, here’s a presentation (pdf)[5] that gives you a flavor of our approach.

My last day with Gartner will be Friday, October 11th, and my first day with IBM will be the following Monday. So I hope to see as many folks from the IT world as possible at my swan song next week, Gartner Symposium--so I can say goodbye or hello!

Very nice interactive infographic of the history of Web standards, browsers, and growth of user/data across the Web. If you want to see the UIs of every version of every browser, this page has it.
