Today while I was browsing my Google Plus feeds I came across this wonderful work by Pip Cleaves. This is a slideshow presentation in which Cleaves features a plethora of web tools to help educators and teachers (who do not always work in the app world) create effective learning designs. These tools are arranged into six main categories:
Peggo is a Digital Video Recorder (DVR) that records MP3s of your favorite online videos. Peggo's packed with great features like integrated search, automatic silence removal, audio normalization, subtrack offsets, and artist and title tags. Peggo automatically removes unwanted silence from the beginning and end of videos so you get a beautiful MP3 with just the good stuff. In addition, Peggo also normalizes the volume of every recording to the same, comfortable level so you never have to reach for the volume dial between MP3s again.

Dr. James McLurkin has a swarm of robots. Individually, they're not that smart, but a crateful of them behaves in some very complex ways, like the bees that inspired them. Gizmodo got to see the wee machines in action, and while they're adorable, they represent some serious future bot capabilities.
At the annual KV CEO Summit, we were fortunate to have both Larry Page and Sergey Brin sit down to discuss a wide range of topics including the acquisition that never was (although not for lack of trying!), why computers today are still pretty bad, their partnership over the last 16 years, the future of Google, government 2.0 and how machine learning and technology will shape our future of abundance.
"Whether it is a billions of photos that carry a payload of emotions, relationships and location data, or status updates announcing the arrival of a new one or those searches for discount Prada shoes or a look-up about a medical condition — there is someone somewhere vacuuming our data droppings and turning them into fodder for their money machine."
