At $5 million for 30 seconds, you better hope your Super Bowl ad generates buzz. Past campaigns have used humor, sex, cute animals and sentiment to capture attention.

On Robert Pollard: “My Zodiac Companion”

3 months agoMedia / New Media : Rough Type

[No. 01 in a Series] Please Be Honest, the latest Guided By Voices record, opens with a dirge.

Virtual Reality in Enterprise and Beyond

A large Great White Shark swims toward me. Despite my love for all things shark-related, I flinch back from it; far too many teeth. “Let’s take a closer look inside,” I hear over the white noise of the sea, the school of Amberjacks, and the conference attendees. Show More Summary

Maturity doesn’t have to be boring. The 40-year old Apple doesn’t lack the challenges it needs, both external and internal, to stay interesting.

DeepMind Could Bring The Best News Recommendation Engine

Reinforcement Learning, a key Google DeepMind algorithm, could overhaul news recommendation engines and greatly improve users stickiness. After beating a Go Grand Master, the algorithm could become the engine of choice for true personalization. My interest for DeepMind goes back to its acquisition by Google, in January 2014, for about half a billion dollars. Later […]

Barack Obama’s Careful Encryption Stance

In the FBI v. Apple fracas, the epithets that have been hurled at President Obama range from hopeless naïf to devilish schemer, to name but the more polite. Indeed, he may be “scheming”, but not in the way that many people think. When weighing the current “encryption problem,” our sitting president must appear strong on […]

“Have We Cured Deafness?” asks the world to listen to the Deaf community

Many of us take simple pleasures such as singing along to a song on the radio, hearing a friend’s voice on the phone or listening to the sound of the Seattle rain fall on rooftops for granted. From an early age we’re taught about the five senses, and trying to imagine life without one of those senses is nearly impossible. Show More Summary
