RodBeckstrom: Cybersecurity / Speaker / Advisory / Starfish and Spider Seven Lessons I learned from Richard Branson - RodBeckstrom: Cybersecurity / Speaker / Advisory / Starfish and Spider

Tue, 10/06/2015 - 09:01 -- rprice

Be a Starfish leader. Richard lets others speak first. In the management meeting, Adam gave a solid presentation about his exciting new company, Ionic Security. Richard waited for almost ten of his team to ask questions before he joined the conversation, creating a space for genuine engagement. In deferring to others first, he learned what his team thought and their concerns about security, allowing him to offer better-informed comments and to probe the subject in greater depth.

Your PC Needs a Control Panel Like This One | Make:

Tue, 08/25/2015 - 17:24 -- rprice

Reddit user smashcuts decided to liven up his interactions with his hardware by building a fully functional overhead control panel for his computer. The 100 programmable buttons range from practical to ridiculous, but smashcuts puts the “fun” in even the most useful functions. His “Main Systems” panel triggers his most used programs, while peripheral panels house switches that function for OS shortcuts or for program-specific commands. All of these he has cleverly codified with nerdy pseudonyms.

Julian Opie, David Shrigley, Cao Fei, and Other Animators Illuminate Something at the Core of Art | MIT Technology Review

Tue, 08/18/2015 - 10:28 -- rprice

It is very much of its time. As Brian Droitcour noted in Art Forum, few works got as much attention in 2008, let alone works in construction (the making of RMB City was constantly on view in London’s Serpentine Gallery). The passage of half a decade has given it a period look. Game technology has moved on, producing ever greater verisimilitude. All works of art contain clues to the date of their creation. But there are specific problems for artists using software created for film animation or digital games.
