Anaheim California is the home of Disneyland. It's a place where parents of mostly small children wander the streets wearing Micky ears and looking for a bit of americana fun. But for 3 days - worlds collide.
Years of social-psychology studies show that humans default to organizing each other by gender, race and age and use stereotypes to create, define and perpetuate organizational norms. Implicit, unconscious biases are well understood and, while individual people themselves might not set out to consciously act in sexist and racist ways, systematized biases, left unexplored and addressed, yield sexist and racist results.
Overall I am really enjoying 'Scope and am having fun experimenting with it. Periscope lets people into our lives via video, much like Instagram lets people into our lives via photographs. It's fun to watch what other people are up to, and be a virtual fly on their wall.
As technology becomes more sophisticated and choices for consumers multiply, it's important for companies and app developers to think about how they will simplify our lives, not complicate them. I prefer my apps segregated and organized by my interests, not what a company wants to sell me.
Think you can't live without a pulse? Not necessarily. Patients with heart failure no longer have to remain in a hospital waiting for a donor heart. A device that once kept patients alive only long enough to receive a transplant is changing the way people with heart failure live for extended periods of time.
Furze, who's gained a huge following due to such insane, brilliant inventions as a bike that runs on ice and a jet-powered Go-Kart, has now made what might be his most ingenious (or terrifying) invention yet.
I install a lot of apps on my mobile and tablet. But recently I have changed. I am trying to avoid installing apps if I am going to use them occasionally. It just consumes space in my phone, and there is no way I am going to find it when I need anyways.
Recently, I moderated a panel of women tech leaders in which all of the participants agreed ahead of time that we wanted our conversation to stay positive.
In the past few weeks, we have seen ample evidence that technology breaches have replaced product recalls as the crisis management challenges of our present and future.
The problems and possibilities are endless in the future we are headed into. We need to be prepared and to develop a new version of capitalism that benefits all.
There is a growing trend. I hear about it on a daily basis. Product teams implementing Kanban style boards to speed up innovation and improve their development process. But many of them quickly realize they have made a mistake.
Technology has changed the game for marketing - we all know it. It's expected that companies will engage their audiences and cater to their needs, while also implementing this in real time.
Since the Ashley Madison story broke, we've seen a wide range of reactions. Many folks are echoing the sentiments of the hackers, who, in their initial statement, called AM's membership "cheating dirtbags" who deserve the "very bad day" that is coming.
From 1993 through 1998 and beyond, Bill Nye has been The Science Guy, inspiring many to pursue careers in science and technology. Bill Nye's fans who are now parents share the program with their children, reaching yet another generation.
Bach in the bathroom. Beethoven in the basement. The Beatles in the bedroom. Imagine being able to stream music to all of these rooms, from different sources, at the same time.
After watching kids and technology metamorphose for the past 30 years, I've come to some big picture thoughts for any parent who's made technology an integral part of their family life.
Like many, I am all for seeing the bright future of flying cars soaring on the horizon. Nevertheless, it seems obstacles still stand before we can see that vision become a reality.
Beirut's tech scene is the darling of international media of late. The tech scene here has turned a corner, going from fledgling to now officially on the map. Among the reasons: the launch of various funds that will bring over $100 million in investments to Lebanon's startup economy over the next five years.
