This is a great pro-active strategy. Always better to engage with people rather than marginalise them etc.
 
The budget for winners is $1 million, and Google will pay out as many rewards as it can on a first-come-first-served basis until the money expires.

The perils of online journalism

I've already posted this on one of +CamMi Pham 's posts, but thought I'd share it with everyone.

A while back I shared one of the articles about the Team Bondi scandal, and shared my brief thoughts about what really happened and what was in the media having experienced it first hand.

It's actually really interesting hearing directly from the person that wrote the article, hearing his quite accurate summation of what he felt went on and how amazed/scared he was about the way the online media sensationalised what essentially were unsubstantiated/unsourced allegations.

The picture was painted by the media that the Team Bondi management were horrible people that took some pleasure in mistreating their workers. This is not true at all either. In many ways I was looked after, especially after I took seriously ill and had to leave suddenly - was actually well looked after during a very difficult time.

However... "In business it isn't crooks who are to be feared most, it is honest men who don't know what they are doing. "--W. Wordsworth


As some will know the company has since been shut down after going bankrupt, leaving employees owed over $1M is unpaid overtime, which is something that was, at least to me, inevitable based on the way the company was managed. (source: http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2011/10/05/la-noires-team-bondi-shutting-its-doors/).

The speech by Andrew does highlight the danger that the "real time information" age has created, and just how easy it could have sensationalised his work to get fame and notoriety.

A lesson in character and integrity. Well done Andrew, for not only doing the right thing, but recognising the potential to have done the wrong thing and making us aware in a way that provokes thought/change.

Codify lets you create games directly on your iPad!
Alasdair Allan originally shared:
 
Interesting, "Codify for iPad lets you create games and simulations — or just about any visual idea you have. Turn your thoughts into interactive creations that make use of iPad features like Multi-Touch and the accelerometer."

Codify sits onto of Lua, http://www.lua.org/. I'm really pleased, but mostly just surprised, that this made it through the App Review Team and onto the App Store. If we could somehow get Codify talking to the Redpark Serial Cable, http://programmingiphonesensors.com/redpark/cable.html, then we'd more-or-less have Processing for the iPad. Well, sort of...

I'm also surprised that they allowed it, but good on them.

Wow... never realised goats are kind of awesome!

I never realized just how much goats can climb!
Spending their lives in the mountains climbing, mountain goats reach this incredible virtuosity, excelling in this mastery of many other animals that seem more suited for this purpose.
