A Ten-Minute History of Robotics
Pfr4t9qbuyna20uluwxg
Present-day robotics hasn't turned out quite as the futurists intended: for better or worse, we don't live in a world of robot butlers and Skynet. This ten-minute history of robotics does a nice job of explaining why. Fundamentally, of course, the truth is that robotics as a discipline is just... quite difficult. Some headaches that were initially understood decades ago still persist, unsolved, while others have only presented themselves over the fullness of time. Though that shouldn't stop us celebrating the progress we have made, from robot vacuum cleaners to the first self-driving cars. Indeed, if anything, this video will make you celebra ... Read More →

Does Your ScrumMaster Have Agile Intuition? (The Colonel Klink Test)
Hogans heroes
Growing up I used to watch reruns of the TV show Hogan’s Heroes, a comedy about a fictional Nazi P.O.W. camp (Stalag 13) that houses prisoners who assist the Allied war effort from within the camp. In Season 2, Episode 8, “A Klink, a Bomb, and Short Fuse,” an unexploded Allied bomb lands in the middle of the camp. There is a scene in this episode where the bumbling Col. Klink, commandant of Stalag 13, the resourceful Col. Hogan, the ranking Allied prisoner, and the loveable, teddy-bear-like Sgt. Schultz are attempting to defuse the bomb. Copyright © 1966 CBS and Bing Crosby Production. The dialog at the point in the above picture is: Hogan: “ ... Read More →

Facebook empathy inline 660x420
Jessie Lorenz can’t see Facebook. But it gives her a better way to see the world—and it gives the world a better way to see her. Lorenz has been blind since birth, and in some ways, this limits how she interacts with the people around her. “A lot of people are afraid of the blind,” she explains. “When you meet them in person, there are barriers.” But in connecting with many of the same people on Facebook, she can push through these barriers. “Facebook lets me control the narrative and break down some of the stigma and show people who I am,” she says. “It can change hearts and minds. It can make people like me—who are scary—more real and more ... Read More →

Why Managing Your Energy Is the Key to Maximum Productivity
IMAGE: Getty Images Advertisement To maximize productivity you must first manage your energy. That’s the message of Allison Green Schoop, associate strategy director at global design firm frog. In a new paper, Schoop reminds us that while a machine’s rate of output depends on sophisticated engineering and durable metal parts, a human being’s capacity for work depends on more variable, often intangible sources. Drawing on “The Power of Full Engagement” by Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz, Green identifies the four types of energy that affect knowledge-worker productivity: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Schoop spoke with Inc. about ... Read More →
