The Trouble With Travel: Hotel WiFi

As I have mentioned previously, I travel a lot for work as a sales engineer.  I am all over the US visiting customers and most of my stays are at least one night, if not for close to a week.  That means I spend a lot of time in hotel rooms and working on both […]

FCC Set To Dismantle Net Neutrality Rules

Net Neutrality regulations were put in place to ensure that our service providers are nothing more than carriers of our data services. Over the years in which these regulations have existed, which began sometime in the early 2000s, providers have repeatedly disregarded them or used excuses to cover up their actions.

Kevin Rose Launches New Website

I first learned of Kevin Rose (@kevinrose) from watching The Screen Savers on TechTV in the US.  Kevin is still a young man, but I remember seeing this really young kid along with so many other talented geeks telling us about technology news and showing us cool ways of hacking things and how to build great […]

Data vs Insight: Which Do You Want?

I have many conversations with people on a regular basis regarding the collection, processing, and dissemination of data.  There are so many sources of data in our world today and each of these sources are so noisy and fighting for our constant attention.  From our smart watches to our enterprise systems, we have a need […]

Predictive Analytics vs Intuition

The attached article from TechRepublic asks the reader which they would trust more, predictive Analytics, or their gut. I would say this is a lot like police work. Once you’ve walked a beat long enough, you get to know the neighborhood. You get a feel for the people, the spots with the most questionable activity, […]

Angry Spouse-o-meter

This article speaks to an experiment being conducted by USC in which wearable technology and machine learning are being used together to detect when conflicts arise within a couple’s relationship.  At this point, they are gathering data and not forcing environmental elements in order to make a conflict arise, but as you can imagine, there […]

Kip: Better Therapy With App Data

I have been open with most people that know me about some anxiety issues I have had over the last 5 years or so.  It doesn’t bother me to talk about it, because it is true and I don’t see any reason to withhold that information when it actually helps people understand me at times […]
