Steve Ballmer, former CEO of Microsoft today unveiled a database and a website that he and a small army of economists, professors and other professionals have been assembling as part of a stealth start-up over the last three years called USAFacts. The database is perhaps the first nonpartisan effort to create a fully integrated look at revenue and spending across federal, state and local governments.
Want to know how many police officers are employed in various parts of the country and compare that against crime rates? Want to know how much revenue is brought in from parking tickets and the cost to collect? Want to know what percentage of Americans suffer from diagnosed depression and how much the government spends on it? That’s in there. You can slice the numbers in all sorts of ways.
Wow, what a time capsule. High Definition Video of New York in 1993. Folks would carry around a camera that weighed a ton to be able to capture high definition video onto special "Digital" VHS tape.
You say not much has changed in 23 years? The clothes are different, no Twin Towers, nobody looking down at their phones. Now everybody carries around a smart phone that can do the same as that huge camera in 1993. :-)
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has some truly amazing opening credits. The animation, miniatures, and stop motion photography are awesome. Stop the video every few seconds and look at all the little details.
Fascinating article that I believe does point out clear differences that I've noticed in how younger people (my children, their friends, younger relatives, and others) think, learn and react having been exposed to this still relatively new online world in the last 15-20 years.
In the NY Times today, Tom Friedman talks about disruptive technologies and mentions the following fascinating quote below from Tom Goodwin, an executive at Havas Media, whose wrote an essay on March 3 on Techcrunch.com
Description: "Uber, the world’s largest taxi company, owns no vehicles. Facebook, the world’s most popular media owner, creates no content. Alibaba, the most valuable retailer, has no inventory. And Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate. Something interesting is happening."
Dropzone 3is a very cool utility for enhancing the built-in ability of Mac OS X to drag and drop files.
It sits in the OS X Menu Bar, and when you click it, a drop-down window unfurls, with shortcuts to apps and folders, as well as built-in actions you can click to share a file on Twitter, Facebook, and practically anywhere on your computer including Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. It also has the ability to add custom actions through scripting.
I find it very handy and recommend it for Mac users. It’s $4.99 in the Mac App Store.
Can anyone stop Comcast? Comcast’s corporate headquarters, Comcast Center, is the tallest building in Philadelphia. It’s covered in mirrors, which makes it the perfect metaphor for the company, one former employee says; no...

Trust us: If hoverboards were as real as this one from a mysterious company called HUVr, the world really would be changed forever. Or at the very least, it would be way more fun. Read this article by Nick Statt on CNET News.
Good article; I agree wholeheartedly. The best camera is the one you have with you. More often then not it's my iPhone 5S. I find that it is more than good enough and can take great photos, and my fancy Micro Four-Thirds camera and lenses sit at home unless I make a concerted effort on using it at a planned event.
Excellent list. I agree with 10 out of the twelve products listed. I was an early adopter of almost all of these products over the years. I believe Facebook and Twitter have been influential, but don't really belong on this list. They weren't game changers like the others were.
A faster, safer way to sign in. You keep your iPhone with you all the time. Now you can use it as a password. You never have to open the app— just knock on your phone twice, even when it’s in your pocket, and you're in.
Here's the deal: I value my privacy and if you are publishing publicly on Facebook, then I won't ever click "like" on anything you post. Follow the tips listed here and change your privacy settings. You wouldn't just go up to a stranger in the street and start telling them about your life, so why would you want them to see your Facebook profile and timeline?
A New Jersey man did an analysis of the many ways his car could be tracked and stumbled upon something rather interesting: his E-ZPass, which he obtained for the purpose of paying tolls, was being used...
