Apparently, playing games on a smartwatch isnt that easy ... but can be engaging nonetheless. Some thoughts from WSJ
Samsung launched its sixth smartwatch, the Samsung Gear S, late last year. But will you play games with them? The WSJ’s Eva Tam tries out three game apps you can play on your Samsung Gear when you’re away from your phone.

An introduction to wearables and wearable app design
#wearables  +Wearable Technology +Samsung Gear 2 +SmartWatches  #smartwatch  
A talk I gave at the City University of Hong Kong Apps Lab "We Can Code" seminar series. This presentation provides a brief introduction to wearables, their architecture, areas of application and outlook for the near future. It also highlights salient aspects of wearable design (fashion, social, functional) and concludes with a discussion on the design of apps for Samsung Gear line of smart watches.

In essence, everyone wins when more effort is made.  #leanintogether   by +Sheryl Sandberg 
Everyone wins when men lean in for equality. Children are happier and healthier. Marriages are stronger. Teams and companies produce better results. Men, show the world you're for equality. Women, celebrate men leaning in.

Watch more: http://cnnmon.ie/1AgyG09 There are now 1.7 job seekers for every one opening. At the height of the recession, it was nearly 7. That means it's now easier to get a job. In addition, more people are now saying "take this job and shove it," which is a sign of confidence in the labor market.

How to scrape webpages with dynamic content/authentication for #socialscience #research http://denvycom.com/blog/data-scraping-selenium-java/
As a researcher, there are many times you will need to assemble a dataset of information in the public domain (on websites) for research studies. E.g you want to analyse thousands comments on a forum, or download and process hundreds of .csv files from an online databank etc.
