How we experience content via connected devices – laptops, phones, tablets, wearables – is undergoing a dramatic change. The idea of an app as an independent destination is becoming less important, and the idea of an app as a publishing tool, with related notifications that contain content and actions, is becoming more important. This will change what we design, and change our product strategy.
hat’s why a new startup, dubbed Miroculus, is building a device that could easily and affordably check for dozens of cancers using a single blood sample. Known as Miriam, this low-cost, open source device made its public debut at the TEDGlobal conference in Rio De Janeiro on Thursday, with TED curator Chris Anderson calling it “one of the most thrilling demos in TED history.”
For the company’s founders—a global team of entrepreneurs, microbiologists, and data scientists—the goal is to make Miriam so simple that even untrained workers in clinics around the world could use it. The project is still in the early stages, but if the early trials of Miriam are to be believed, Miroculus could make regular cancer screenings as simple as getting blood drawn.
When the recording industry smashed Napster with a $20 billion lawsuit more than a decade ago, filesharing morphed into Bittorrent, a fully peer-to-peer system with no central server for law enforcement to attack. Now the developers behind one software project are trying to pull off a similar trick with the anarchic model of bitcoin e-commerce…
Dans ce nouvel univers du PaaS, les programmeurs sont devenus des développeurs. Pourquoi la PaaS est la couche du Cloud de prédilection pour les développeurs d'applications ? Mais si le code contrôle le monde et est défini par les développeurs, est-ce que cela signifie que ceux-ci dirigent le monde ?
we have the new Docker enterprise product called Docker Hub Enterprise, which Messina describes as a turn-key solution companies can install behind their firewall. It’s the first commercial offering from Docker and it’s designed to meet the needs of more security-conscious companies like financial services and give them a starting point for using Docker in the enterprise. Partners include industry heavyweights Amazon Web Services, IBM and Microsoft. The product was announced today, but it will be released in February.
Finally, Docker announced a deal with IBM today where IBM will be acting as a reseller of Docker products. Messina said having a company like IBM as partner is great validation for Docker as a young company and they are welcoming the partnership.
That’s a ton of news and it shows that Docker is continuing to build the product and to try and find new ways to distribute it through a growing partner network. Fact is they have to because the competition isn’t sitting still either.
ther problem with maps is that once you make them, you have to keep them up to date, a challenge Google says it hasn't yet started working on. Considering all the traffic signals, stop signs, lane markings, and crosswalks that get added or removed every day throughout the country, keeping a gigantic database of maps current is vastly difficult. Safety is at stake here; Chris Urmson, director of the Google car team, told me that if the car came across a traffic signal not on its map, it could potentially run a red light, simply because it wouldn't know to look for the signal. Urmson added, however, that an unmapped traffic signal would be "very unlikely," because during the "time and construction" needed to build a traffic signal, there would be adequate opportunity to add it to the map. But not always. Scott Heydt, director of marketing at Horizon Signal Technologies, says his company routinely sets up its portable traffic signals at road construction sites. Frequently, they are simply towed to a site and
he startup raised this new bite of funding from Nicolas Brusson (cofounder of BlaBlaCar), Thibaud Elzière, Nicolas Bourdin, the founders of l’Atelier des Chefs, Kima Ventures, Xavier Niel, Jeremie Berrebi, and previous investor Guillaume Cuvelier.

short messages, like “got it” help create a culture of efficiency and attentiveness. He continues:
“Being responsive sets up a positive communications feedback loop whereby your team and colleagues will be more likely to include you in important discussions and decisions, and being responsive to everyone reinforces the flat, meritocratic culture you are tryi
DARPA, on the back of the US government's BRAIN program, has begun the development of tiny electronic implants that interface directly with your nervous system and can directly control and regulate many different diseases and chronic conditions, such as arthritis, PTSD, inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn's disease), and depression. The program, called ElectRx (pronounced 'electrics'), ultimately aims to replace medication with
