Information Feedback Loops In Stock Markets, Investing, Innovation And Mathematical Trends
It seems that no matter how complex our civilization and society gets, we humans are able to cope with the ever changing dynamics, find reason in what seems like chaos and create order out of what appears to be random. We run through our lives making observations, one-after-another, trying to find meaning - sometimes we are able, sometimes not, and sometimes we think we see patterns which may or not be so. Our intuitive minds attempt to make rhyme of reason, but in the end without empirical evidence much of our theories behind how and why things work, or don't work, a certain way cannot be proven, or disproven for that matter.

Your Wicked Customers Are Trying To Break Your Rules! What If You Helped Them?
Ever heard of a 'false metric'? It's the very human act of viewing a relatively unimportant part of a system as though it were a critical indicator of success. For instance, a manager might track the productivity of his staff by ensuring that they all 'clock in on time.' But arriving early is no guarantee of productivity, and measuring it is not the same thing as ensuring the result you're after. Et voila: False metric.

Virtual Assessment Centres
Creative Commons (CC) resources are continuing to increase, from web pages to graphics, to audio and video media. Creative Commons Licensing was started by a Stanford law professor Lawrence Lessig to deal with creative works protected by copyright law, including text, audio, pictures and video of any subject, in any format. The words 'Commons' derives from those elements of the environment we all share, seas, rivers, land and air. Today there are also cultural commons including art and historical landmarks, and scientific commons that enable the sharing of critical research, i.e. open access to research critical to advance progress against cancer. And, the EU has called for full open access to scientific research by 2020.

Disruptive 3D Technology Considered
The other day our think tank was discussing the challenges of 3-D printing and how "Capitalism will begin to suffer damage when 3D printing starts to affect the retail distribution chain." Consider if you will that in the future people will be 3D printing at home using carbon composite layering graphene, metallic materials, plastics, ceramic materials, etc. - people don't need to go to a retail store to buy cheap products, they can merely print them in their living room. What about the jobs at the major retailers, what about the management in retail, the buyers, truck drivers, warehouse staff? All those jobs gone?

When It Comes To Technology Grants, Startups Can Offer More Bang For the Buck Than Universities
In reviewing the scientific research grants we give to academia, billions of million dollars a year, I often find it amazing how little we get for all that money spent. No, don't get me wrong, I believe in research, it's just that I wonder if government is the best way to fund innovative pure research science. You see, I find that the amount of government funded research is so vast it is crowding out the private foundations and corporate sponsored research mechanism, which I find completely troubling.

Using Ball Mills in the Energy Industry
In the industry worldwide, there is already some considerable experience in the use of ultra-fine ground coal in energy production - as a cost-effective fuel to replace gas and fuel oil at energy production facilities (in the USA, Germany, and China). The USA has positive experience in using it at a 600 MW unit in North Carolina for firing a boiler powered by ultra-fine ground coal. Ultra-fine ground coal is also being used to power boilers run by the Steinmuller corporation in Germany, for whom a specially-designer unit to exploit the power source was built. The results were very successful. This new technology is low-cost, with a short return-on-investment cycle which will hit break-even in no more than 2 to 3 years. The additional financing costs are in producing the ultra-fine ground coal (the purchase of ball mill machinery) - the additional machinery also has a short investment payback cycle due to the economics of the fuel supply industry.

Stop Treating Creativity As an Option
Turning creativity into money. That's how I sometimes described my job as the Executive Producer of a hit comedy TV show in Seattle. Turning creativity into money. See, our job, week after week, was to be creative-on demand. BUT, that creativity had to lead to profit. If what we created-jokes, comedy sketches, parodies-didn't draw an audience that advertisers would pay to reach, our creativity would have gone nowhere (and our careers would have quickly followed). But we did draw that audience, and the station made a healthy profit. And it all began with our creativity. Our creativity was the engine that powered the profits.

Pens Should Be Simple - Ballpoints Are Not Rocket Science
Just when you think pens are no-brainers they come out with new inks, new style of pens or a new delivery system for inks-barrels and cartridges. Pens should only be about putting ink on paper that doesn't bleed, blob, scratch, gouge paper, or skip. However, even choosing pens seems to be the art of compromise. Pens are used every day and I have found they are a personal preference. We are considering ballpoints, gels, roller balls. We are not even considering fountain pens and personal statement pens--just the everyday workhorse pens we don't necessarily care if we lose.

Is The Diversity In the US Why We Are So Successful?
Not long ago, a foreign born student attending a top US University here in California asked me if I thought that the reason that the USA was so successful was due to our "diversity" bringing all different cultures to one place.

So, I explained my thoughts on this, and perhaps it might help illuminate this for you too? Let's talk shall we.

The Benefits of Informal Get-Togethers
I just spent a delightful morning with a colleague of mine (Ron, another speaker) who was in from out of town and gave me a call. And yes, I realize I just used the word "delightful," when the more manly, chainsaw, Hemi word would be something like "awesome," "radical," or "killer," but dammit, it was delightful. Anyway, as I was leaving this killer get-together, I found myself wondering, "Why don't I do this more often?" Granted, in this case it was Ron who called me, but I travel a lot, and I rarely reach out to other colleagues on the road. That's to my detriment.
