Real-time business analytics by using a spreadsheet (and some REST API calls). IBM has some complex software, but they sure do know how to make something quite complex easily accessible to the 90 million excel users out there. See their research report below.

Brilliant. "If you have a difficult task to do, give it to a lazy man, and he will find an easier way to do it." - Henry Ford
 
Check the #AppsScript  samples and tutorials created by High Schoolers in Vermont! Google Apps Script is a great way to learn how to program not only because it is easy to use but also because you can see the results of a script clearly (eg. document created, email sent, etc).

Apparently this photo by +Trey Ratcliff has 10 billion views on Google + in 4 days. 
 
10 Billion Views on Google - Thanks! - 10 Free Video Tutorials!

I wanted to give away 10 free HDR Tutorial videos to thank everyone for the 10 billion views - how insane - thank YOU so much! Just leave a comment below if you want to win http://goo.gl/Fl8gQz - I'll pick winners in about 24 hours!

For this special day, I wanted to upload this new photo (19,000 pixels across!) that I just captured in the sweet spot in the northern bits of the Guangxi province, just to the south of the Guizhou and Hunan provinces of China. 桂林市 - 广西. I am standing on top of another spire (just like the ones you see!), and it was incredibly difficult, to say the least. Here's the story.

It was a muggy day, the sort where you feel your t-shirt sticking to you before you even realize it. We hired some local guides, who then hired some even more local guides to help show the way to the spire we wanted to ascend. Boy was it grueling! Jagged rocks, thorny bushes, all-fours most of the way. Sometimes the only thing to hold onto was a thorn bush or a glassy-evil-jaded rock. At the top, I looked down to see all kinds of grisly lacerations... but gathered my wits to get this photo!  My bff Tom Anderson was very smart and wore more clothes than me to keep his skin baby-smooth. This photo is a panorama, which I don't normally do, but the Dr. Seuss countryside there is so vast and overpowering, it was kind of the only way to bring it all together.

I think I'll go back here again... if you wanna come along, sign up for our newsletter at http://www.StuckInCustoms.com/news — or if you wanna go on your own, I'll take time to detail everything there including how to contact some local guides so you can find the same spot.  

Anyway, thanks again for all the views and I'm happy you enjoy them so much here and other places on the interwebs... I used to do this back in the day when it was just me and my mom that would look at the photos... she still comes every day — hi mom! And don't worry, I got down safe and I'm putting aloe vera on the wounds just like you taught me! :)

I've looked for a SaaS equivalent of MS Project for years. This is it. I'm using it to manage and collaborate on several projects!

#CloudFactory. Inspired by Henry Ford’s assembly line of 84 unskilled workers who produced the first automobiles, Cloudfactory created a system which allows organizations to create their own virtual assembly lines for digital production. With a strong social mission, Cloudfactory has developed their own workforce comprised of workers in Nepal and Kenya. #crowdsourcing  

Thanks +Tim Olsen
