THE DREAM IN ACTION: The Three P's of Operations →
ryangraves: When I helped launch Uber early 2010 I didn’t really see myself as an operations guy. I am just a get-shit-done guy that can take on a project, learn what I need to know, talk to the right people, and deploy…then keep learning. I guess that’s part fo the process called entrepreneurism. I’m…

“It looks like a human was involved in choosing what went where,” Marissa told them. “It looks too editorialized. Google products are machine-driven. They’re created by machines. And that is what makes us powerful. That’s what makes our products great.” Machine-driven products are something that people are just starting to understand. Yes; everything can be automated.
Welcome to the Tricki Ä›Â°Ë?€“ a Wiki-style site that is intended to develop into a large store of useful mathematical problem-solving techniques. Someone should make something like this for marketing/digital.

Awesome Quora question: http://b.qr.ae/vmIg8z I’m interested to hear what very talented mathematicians and physicists have to say about “what it’s like” to have an internalized sense of very advanced mathematical concepts… As someone who only completed college calculus and physics, and has some basic CS background, but who is very intrigued by mathematics,...
Proof | Zeus Jones →
“We hunkered down in a room and discussed how the user experience should go, coming out with an experience that was more inspired by board games than any one example of technology. We wanted it to feel social and democratic, easy for anyone to enjoy.” Sweet stuff coming out of a marketing firm. Zeus Jones, you humble us all.
Amazon's long-term thinking →
“If everything you do needs to work on a three-year time horizon, then you’re competing against a lot of people,” Mr. Bezos told reporter Steve Levy last month in an interview in Wired. “But if you’re willing to invest on a seven-year time horizon, you’re now competing against a fraction of those people, because very few companies are willing to do that. Just by...
stevenberlinjohnson.com: Anatomy Of An Idea →
1. The discovery process is remarkably social, and the social interactions come in amazingly diverse forms. Sometimes it’s overhearing a conversation on Twitter between two complete strangers; sometimes it’s the virtual book club of something like Findings; sometimes it’s going out to lunch with a friend and bouncing new ideas off them. It’s the social life of information,...
Dazzle Camouflage →
At first glance Dazzle seems an unlikely form of camouflage, drawing attention to the ship rather than hiding it, but this technique was developed after the Allied Navies were unable to develop effective means to disguise ships in all weathers. Dazzle did not conceal the ship but made it difficult for the enemy to estimate its type, size, speed and heading. The idea was to disrupt the...

russell davies: again with the post digital →
Russell Davies is a smart dude. “Post Digital was a suggestion that, maybe, we needed to get over that and start thinking about the next phase, the phase where it got integrated into the world. What will we do, I was asking, when we can take all this connectivity for granted? When it’s no longer special or interesting? What will we build then?”
Motorola’s Gimmicks – Marco.org →
No other smartphone manufacturer has succeeded in attacking the iPhone head-on, not because they’re stupid, but because they can’t. They don’t have Apple’s manufacturing scale, component deals, content and accessory ecosystems, or software resources. Their willingness to develop and ship gimmicks are their biggest advantage, because no matter how many people buy iPhones, there’s always going to...

Teaching Interface | Noah Brier dot Com →
Its designed to give you real-time feedback on your driving style. When the car is happy i.e. being driven efficiently, the ball is green and in the center of the gauge. Stomp on the accelerator, and it rises to the top, changing color to yellow. Brake too hard so youre bypassing the kinetic energy recovery and it dives to the bottom, again changing color to yellow. The more time you spend in...
