Teach a person to laugh...

On my last job search I came across the following position: Court Jester. You read that right. This particular company was hiring someone to liven up the office through his or her antics. At the time it was the only company I saw that had a position like that.How times have changed... Just when you thought you had seen everything, here comes the humor consultant. We now seek advice from folks who claim to know how to keep workplaces fun and frivolous.If I sound cynical, I'm not. Honest. I just…See More

Building a better search

Posted on November 13, 2008 at 7:50am 4 Comments


There's a new search engine on the 'net that supposedly is the best one available now. It's called DeepDyve, and it claims to gather 99 percent of information that Google misses. It's only in beta mode right now, but it's already receiving a ton of buzz.

According to its Web site, the company deploying this new app was founded… Continue

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Posted on November 6, 2008 at 7:35am 3 Comments

I think the story goes that President-Elect Barack Obama stated he wanted to be the leader of the United States when he was five. (His former Democratic Party opponent, Sen. Hillary Clinton, would have you believe that this meant he was ‘ambitious,’ but that’s a topic for another time.) When I was five, I wanted to be a cashier because ‘I like money.’ I'm not kidding. My mom still has the picture that I drew of myself at a cashier stand along with the description I wrote.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
