Google’s “Fuchsia” smartphone OS dumps Linux, has a wild new UI

Google’s “Fuchsia” smartphone OS dumps Linux, has a wild new UI | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Taking a look at Google's mysterious third operating system.
nukem777's insight:

Fuchsia really seems like a project that asks "how would we design Android today, if we could start over?" It's a brand-new, Google-developed kernel running a brand-new, Google-developed SDK that uses a brand-new, Google-developed programming language and it's all geared to run Google's Material Design interface as quickly as possible. Google gets to dump Linux and the GPL, it can dump Java and the problems it caused with Oracle, and Google can basically insulate itself from all of Android's upstream projects and bring all the development in-house. Doing such a thing on the scale of Android today would be a massive project.

nukem777's insight:

So long as it was the case that everybody who could be bothered to learn had access to AltaVista, or Google, or Facebook, or whatever, then that was okay. The problem we’re facing now is that more and more capable systems are no longer open to all. They’re open to the government, to big business, and to powerful advertising networks.

There Are Some Super Shady Things in Oculus Rift's Terms of Service (Updated)

There Are Some Super Shady Things in Oculus Rift's Terms of Service (Updated) | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
The Oculus Rift is starting to ship, and we’re pretty happy with it. While it’s cool, like any interesting gadget, it’s worth looking through the Terms of Service, because there are some worrisome things included.
nukem777's insight:

This is kind of creepy! Given that Oculus can collect information about how you move and how you’re shaped. The Facebook-owned company can use your location and log your activity, and it can even do so automatically.

 

And on a related note, given that Facebook owns Oculus, it’s not surprising that the Terms of Service also include language that allows the company to monetize your experience: that is, after all, what the Facebook platform has been historically extremely good at.

Fuel of the future: Data is giving rise to a new economy | The Economist

Fuel of the future: Data is giving rise to a new economy | The Economist | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
AN OIL refinery is an industrial cathedral, a place of power, drama and dark recesses: ornate cracking towers its gothic pinnacles, flaring gas its stained glass, the stench of hydrocarbons its heady incense.
nukem777's insight:

Data are to this century what oil was to the last one: a driver of growth and change. Flows of data have created new infrastructure, new businesses, new monopolies, new politics and—crucially—new economics. Digital information is unlike any previous resource; it is extracted, refined, valued, bought and sold in different ways. It changes the rules for markets and it demands new approaches from regulators. Many a battle will be fought over who should own, and benefit from, data.

As climate change accelerates, a handful of scientists are eager to move ahead with experiments testing ways to counteract warming artificially. Their reasoning: we just might get desperate enough to use this technology one day.

Three ways to survive the rise of the cloud and 'big software' | ZDNet

Three ways to survive the rise of the cloud and 'big software' | ZDNet | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Embracing new ways of working and building new relationships are key to navigating the new world of software.
nukem777's insight:

Embracing agility and creating business-led IT initiatives is just a jumping off point. Even IT leaders who embrace change will find it challenging to keep innovation going. The constant drop feed of change means organisations that attempt to keep everything running in-house are likely to become outmoded quickly.

A NEW commodity spawns a lucrative, fast-growing industry, prompting antitrust regulators to step in to restrain those who control its flow. A century ago, the resource in question was oil. Now similar concerns are being raised by the giants that deal in data, the oil of the digital era.

Can There Be a Microscope of the Mind? - | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Making the case that educators should cultivate their cognitive science literacy.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
nukem777's insight:

More broadly, if educators understand some of the basics of the science that you hopefully understand now, they might ask questions like the following:

  • Is this adaptive learning product a cognitive tutor based on the ACT-R model? (Try that one on your textbook sales rep. I dare you.)
  • Can you give me some examples of the kinds of learning stumbling blocks that this product helps students with in my teaching domain?
  • What is your research basis for knowing that the stumbling blocks you think you’ve identified are, in fact, problems?
  • Can you explain to me in plain English the kinds of factors that this “machine learning” you keep talking about takes into account and roughly how the program uses new data from the students to adjust over time?
  • When you talk about “brain science,” can you explain to me what that really means? What do you think you know about the brain, how do you know it, and how does that knowledge apply to the way that the product works?

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 18, 7:10 PM
Mindfulness is understood to be fully awake to the world. I used hermeneutic phenomenology as my research methodology in my dissertation. Broadly, phenomenology is a wakefulness to the world and hermeneutics is interpreting what we become aware of and is often taken-for-granted (van Manen, 1990 and 2014). Whatever we want to call the pedagogy, mindful and wakefulness work in how we interact with our students.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Susan Gilbert because it shows you great tools to help improve your blog, Instagram strategy, and business sales.

 

Reach more customers and readers online with these great resources for business.

 

12 Marketing, Blog, and Business Tools for More Sales

 

With the right tools you can help your bottom line and reach grow. I agree that in order to build a business online it's important to take advantage of what's available.

 

Gilbert provides the best tools to help make your brand stand out on Instagram and your blog.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Pinterest is one of the best social networks to attract buyers and website subscribers. The jQuery Pin It Button highlights your blog images for easy pinning.

 

  • You no longer have to just use a mobile device to manage your Instagram account(s). Grum helps you to schedule your images and posts ahead of time with related hashtags and emojis.

 

  • There are a lot of CRM products out there -- one of the best to check out is from Hubspot. Their free tool helps you to gain valuable insights on your leads and monitor your community.
