"As some of the people involved in Deloitte’s ratings redesign put it: 'In effect, we are asking our team leaders what they would do with each team member rather than what they think of that individual.'" +Brent Auernheimer 
Among the problems with performance evaluations: Managers have incentives to inflate appraisals; even accurate feedback can feel biased and unfair; and organizations don’t do a good job of rewarding good evaluators and sanctioning bad ones. Credit PHOTOGRAPH BY IAN BERRY / MAGNUM

More people are wearing on-body cameras that film everything someone does. How will this alter your behaviour?

Why this article fails to mention the PET's original specs is beyond me (1MHz 6502, 96kB RAM, 80x25 text display).
Commodore is bringing back the 80's. Well, sort of. A new Android phone bearing the Commodore name arrives later this week, complete with an emulator for C-64 and Amiga games.

I'm with those who say they're missing a few names.  Notably Richard Stallman, Bjarne Stroustrup and probably Alan Kay.  You've got to include Tim Berners-Lee given that HTTP is fundamental to most all modern programming. I'd also give honorable mention to Larry Wall, personally. :)

Hmmm.. "That catastrophic error is a harsh repudiation of the design philosophy behind the two aircraft: Rely on human skill instead of computers. All the systems on WhiteKnightTwo and SpaceShipTwo are manually operated, to keep everything as basic as possible."

Doesn't surprise me though, seems like that  was/is the Dick Rutan way of design. Didn't they  also have  a motor blow during testing, who needs that safety stuff anyway :)

It would be far better than nothing to get a million miles (and a million is enough that you'd probably never need to pay for another flight again), but for that to be really be worth much, you'd have to fly more than just occasionally, which many of us don't. Money would be far better. But at least they have a bug bounty program.

What does the first car navigation system have to do with that on-screen first-down marker in football broadcasts?  Not much, but it's an interesting story anyway. 
With backing from Atari's cofounder, an engineer-navigator brought high-tech driving directions to carsduring the Reagan Administration.

Hopefully 2001 is not one of the 'old movies' they're training it with.
