Robots to revolutionize farming, ease labor woes
20130715  story 4172b3a9 be8b 4eda 84bb 86272c46b7cd~p2 500
Posted:   07/15/2013 03:49:49 AM PDTUpdated:   07/15/2013 04:45:09 AM PDTSALINAS, Calif. -- On a windy morning in California's Salinas Valley, a tractor pulled a wheeled, refrigerator-sized contraption over rows of budding iceberg lettuce plants. Engineers from Silicon Valley tinkered with the software on a laptop to ensure the machine was eliminating the right leafy buds. Hired by a Salinas-based agricultural produce company, the engineers were testing the Lettuce Bot, a machine that can "thin" a field of lettuce in the time it takes about 20 workers to do the job by hand. The thinner is part of a new generation of ... Read More →

Aging in Place (2): Building a Foundation for Design
Aip blogpost2 01
By Jon Freach, Katie Inglis, and Shaina Donovan - August 1, 2013 What are the best ways to take care of someone you love as they age?In our first post on the subject of “Aging in Place” we explored what it means to grow old and who it impacts the most. We proposed that a deeper understanding of the nuances of aging and caregiving could inform “a network of experience and place.” Applied intelligently, we believe emerging technologies can make significant contributions to the health and welfare of those aging in place while bringing support and relief to those who care for them.Over the course of the last two weeks our teams have conducted rese ...

What Makes an “Ad Worth Spreading”
What can advertising do for me? What does advertising do? To say that it exists to sell stuff only captures part of its evolving role. Today’s brands need to be more than product sellers, they have to stand for something. We live in a participation age where marketing is no longer a one-way message from brand to consumer. Today’s connected consumers expect conversations from brands. So more than ever, brands need something meaningful to say to convince consumers they are part of the same community. Brands ...

Business needs to practice the tao of simplicity
Doreen 21
August 1, 2013: 2:48 PM ETBy Doreen LorenzoFORTUNE -- Every day we are inundated with ever more complex technologies in the products and services we are offered. Yet what we really crave is a return to simplicity and back-to-basics minimalism in design, form, and function.Invoking the concept of simplicity might sound like heresy at a time when technology is generally regarded as a savior that makes our lives easier, more enjoyable and meaningful. That's all true. But at the same time the onslaught of technology has also engendered big data, smartphones with a thousand features, and more apps to chose from than any sentient being could ever us ... Read More →

Pat Kua's reflections on development, leadership and continuous improvement
Humanside
A majority of books in the agile space always relate to the practices talked about in various methodologies, if not focusing on the methodologies themselves. With the Agile Manifesto talking about Individuals and interactions over Processes and Tools our community seemed to have missed a bit about how you go about building better interactions between individuals. Fortunately a community member, Gil Broza wrote a book called The Human Side of Agile: How to Help Your Team Deliver. Gil was kind enough to send me a book a while back, but it was only on this trip to Agile Brazil that I managed to find the time read and reflect upon what I learned i ... Read More →

The design process is not part of a standard ... Read More →
