Team Army having big fun wingsuiting

My colleague +Tim Wakefield reported from  first World Cup of Wingsuit Performance Flying, which we were one of the sponsors of. Asked today in our network meeting whether he'd had a go himself he said he'd been too busy putting the report together. A reasonable excuse it must be admitted.

In any case, Tim had a superb time and was slightly slack jawed by the skills shown by these top level competitors. The event was followed online by thousands of enthusiasts, all enjoying the tech which included real time videos, altimeter and GPS readings etc.

There's a link to a Forces TV video report too.

On Trust - and when it goes away

The Politicos need to be reined in, as we know. here's another small example of why
Gone are the sex scandals, excessive use of chauffeur driven cars, and lavish expenses used to spiff up MPs' homes.

Extraordinary silicon!

This is a huge jump in capability. Not yet production ready, but they're working on it..
Scientists at IBM Research have created by far the most advanced neuromorphic (brain-like) computer chip to date. The chip, called TrueNorth, consists of 1 million programmable neurons 256 million programmable synapses spread out across 4096 individual neurosynaptic cores. Yes, IBM is now a big step closer to building a brain on a chip.

Molly the house cat

I was struggling home with a heavy shopping bag t'other day when I got intercepted by Molly. She directed me to sit on one of the benches and have a chat. So here she is doing her cute talk to me thing. (I've mentioned her to +Brad Esau before but not shown a photo).

5G and the Internet of Things

An interesting article from IEEE Spectrum about how the forthcoming 5G mobile networking will be a valuable, and needed, asset for the IoT.

Dumb and dumber

Floridians had better wake up and elect some proper Politicians who have everyone's interests at heart..
h/t to +Rob Salzman for this depressing share
 
Robin Speronis lives off the grid in Florida, completely independent of the city’s water and electric system. A few weeks ago, officials ruled her off-grid home illegal. Officials cited the International Property Maintenance Code, which mandates that homes be connected to an electricity grid and a running water source. That’s like saying our dependency on corporations […]

Inspirational post

Here's a great find by +David Amerland about a disabled chap who has invented a new prosthesis to help him to do the things that he loves best, ie skiing at a very high level. This is very relevant to my colleagues at TeamArmy of course. Thanks David.
David Amerland originally shared to Culture and the web:
 
Creating Hope

What would it take to make someone who's lost a leg walk again? The question is not new and neither is the answer but when the answer is being given by people who themselves don't know what it feels like to have a leg missing, the solution is not always true, or elegant or sufficient. One amputee decided that he'd had enough of half measures. In a 17 year journey that contained as many lows as it did highs, he managed to make his dream come true. This is an inspiring tale of a person doing what people do best: using passion and heart to fight adversity and the odds. Dive in. You'll love it: http://goo.gl/ZamUo6

Story
Tagline
Software Architect, Researcher, SocialMedia person. Ethics matter to me.
Introduction
Officially I'm retired, or was, until that Rob Pye called me back to help with Ethos 4 years ago. Especially when I found out about their TeamArmy initiative which raises money to support (and mentor) ex-Services folk, including the Wounded Warriors. Better yet, as an ex-racer and driving enthusiast, I discovered that Ethos had supported the much esteemed team at MissionMotorsports led by Major Jim Cameron.

Other interests include travel, different cultures (I've lived abroad for most of my life all over Europe and North America), fine foods and wines, and music, especially live music of many types.

I also help to organise meetings at the House of Commons with GlobalNet 21. Use it or lose it!
