Swiss Photography Club G+962The +Swiss Photography Club G+ would like to invite you to a photo walk in and near *Luzern* on *Saturday 8 June*. The walk will offer long exposure, street and landscape photography opportunities. *The Photowalk* We will start the day in the city center of Lucerne, where there will be opportunities to do city/street photography near the old town. At the end of the morning we will grab a few sandwiches in preparation for the afternoon part of the walk . In the afternoon we will go up to the Pilatus mountain. Pilatus is one of the most legendary places in Central Switzerland, and one of the most beautiful. On a clear day the mountain offers a panoramic view of the Vierwaldstättersee (lake Lucerne) and 73 Alpine peaks.  To get to Pilatus we will travel by boat from Luzern to Alpnachstad, where we will take the cogtrain up to Pilatus. The combined boat/cogtrain trip takes about  1 1/2 hour. Obviously there will be plenty of shooting opportunities on the boat as well. For those who are interested and still have time, it will be an option to stay in the evening and to do some long exposure and night photography at the lake. For more info please visit:  http://www.myswitzerland.com/en/lucerne.html http://www.myswitzerland.com/en/pilatus1.html *Schedule* 08:15 - 08:30 Meet at the Luzern main train station (at the big arch in front) 08:30 - 08:45 Organize Tickets for the public transport to the Pilatus 08:45 - 11:30 Morning Program in Luzern city 11.50 - 13:30 Travel to Pilatus (sandwich during travel) 13:30 - 16:15 Afternoon Shooting from the top of mount Pilatus 16:25 - 18:00 Transfer back to Luzern Mainstation 18.00 - 19.00 Farewell drink, small dinner for evening-shooters 19:00 - 22:00 Tentative evening shoot *Gear* All lenses are useful. Those who want to do long exposure photography, will need to bring the necessary kit: ND filters, cable release, tripod, etc. *Costs* Combi-ticket boat and cogtrain to Pilatus:      CHF 80,= (CHF 40,= with halftax) *Organizers* +Martin Weibel and +Johan Peijnenburg  Hope to see you in Luzern!

Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski578,451HANGOUT FOR THE FIRST F1 GRAND PRIX OF THE SEASON Last year we did several "Formula 1 Race hangouts" and though I'd have wished attendance to have been a bit higher, we had great fun with the few who did come. This year (after G+ has settled down a bit) I hope that we get a few more peeps to watch the races together with us. Here is how it works: ➢ We all watch the race on our own individual TV sets. There is not going to be a race broadcast in the hangout for several reasons. ▸ A broadcast would take over the hangouts audio and would make it impossible for us to talk. ▸ It means, we can all watch the race in the language we prefer (in my case it's German). ▸ The broadcast would take up a hangout spot. I'd rather have one of you guys there. ➢ I'll invite participants in two steps. ▸ About an hour before the race starts (find out here, when exactly that will be in your time zone: http://bit.ly/Ynm5nT) I will invite all of those of the "Google+ Paddock Club".  ▸ Just before the race I will invite my Formula 1 circle. GET YOU GOOGLE+ PADDOCK CLUB PASS! So if you want to make sure, that you get a spot, join the "G+PC"! To join the club you can either click on "Going" at this event or +1 the second comment at this post: http://bit.ly/ZfYUhL. Either way you'll be added to the "G+PC" circle. I'd also like your ideas on how to make the Formula 1 Race Hangout more interesting.Formula 1 Race Hangout - Melbourne/Australia2013-03-17 07:00:0048  
Tim Utzig14,838Thought it might be fun to post a pic of your country, city or state this week, now through Wednesday - as many or as few as you'd like. Just thought it would be a fun way to share a little bit about your country, experiences and some of your favorite destinations and maybe meet a new person. Just take a pic and post it here. Open to invite friends as well.  #YourFavoritePlace  Your Favorite Place2012-11-17 18:00:00191  
LeWeb1,083,151Join us for a google hangout with Le Web speaker, Rafi Haladjian, CEO of Sen.se. "At Sen.se, we believe there is no such thing as the Internet of Things. We rather believe in an Internet of Everything where Humans, Nature, Machines, Objects, Environments, Information, Physical and Virtual spaces all mix up, talk, intertwine, interact, enrich and empower each other in all sorts of ways. This is what we are building and we think that we are not alone."LeWeb Speaker Hangout with Rafi Haladjian, CEO of Sen.se2012-10-16 19:00:0027  
LeWeb1,083,151Smart Things is one of those companies that as soon as you hear about it...it just blows your mind.   It opens your eyes to the magical things that technology will do in the near future.  It's the kinds of thing that we imagined as kids, or saw in movies.  We've arrived at that day in "the future". The concept is simple.  Smart Things is building a platform that allows every day things to connect to the internet.  Watch the video on their (super successful) kickstarter page to see exactly what it can do. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/smartthings/smartthings-make-your-world-smarter Then join us on Thursday for what's sure to be an amazingly insightful hangout with LeWeb speaker Alex Hawkinson, the CEO of SmartThings. If you don't want to join the actual hang out, don't worry, you can watch the whole thing live on YouTube, and ask questions in the comments. Can't make it live?  We have you covered too.  All the videos will be available on our YouTube page at http://youtube.com/leweb And remember, Dec 4-6 is coming up fast.  Get your tickets to LeWeb Paris now, and see more amazing speakers like Alex take the stage and blow your mind.  http://www.leweb.co/register/parisLeWeb Google Hangout with Alex Hawkinson, CEO of Smart Things2012-10-09 19:00:0094

Jean-Marc Luna (juancaramel)36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321214393

digitalSTROM Algorithms. Keeping track of historical temperature data.
When interviewing candidates that want to join our digitalstrom team I always have some algorithm questions ready for them.  And what I am looking for is someone who can not only get the task done but also somebody who would choose the most efficient algorithm that gets the task done.  
One example of an algorithm question I use is keeping track of the historical temperature data for our customers. Choosing the right algorithm can make a big difference on the amount of data that we have to keep in our backend servers for every installation.

digitalSTROM Algorithms. Keeping track of historical temperature data.
When interviewing candidates that want to join our digitalstrom team I always have some algorithm questions ready for them.  And what I am looking for is someone who can not only get the task done but also somebody who would choose the most efficient algorithm that gets the task done.  
One example of an algorithm question I use is keeping track of the historical temperature data for our customers. Choosing the right algorithm can make a big difference on the amount of data that we have to keep in our backend servers for every installation.
The problem description is quite simple: We have a smartphone application where the user should be able to view the indoor temperature of a given room together with the outdoor temperature.  We want the user to be able to zoom in and out in time, and to scroll through the graph.
Returning the raw data to the smartphone will not work for all cases.  The smartphone has limited memory resources and network bandwidth.  Lets assume that you receive a new temperature value every 5 minutes. If the user zooms out to a week the graph would have to display 12*24*7= 2016 data points.   That's just for a week.  The smartphone app will be slow if we use raw data.
- The first question I expect from a candidate is how many data points can we send to the smartphone application so that it stays responsive.  About 1000 is a good answer
- The second concept I expect is to get some kind of aggregation defined. Once the zoom level reaches a given scale an efficient implementation will use a different data set that returns data every hour, and then every day, and then every week.  The smartphone app will then fetch the aggregated data when zoomed out.
And its now that things start getting interesting.  Fetching the stored data to calculate the rolling average on every query is definitely a poor design decision.  I would expect the candidate to come with a schema for keeping a rolling average.
Aggregating data for one hour requires adding the 12 five minute values and dividing them by 12 once the hour is reached. But there is a small detail to consider.  If we only wait until the hour is finished to calculate the value, the graph will have a gap at the end. For example, if it is 10:55 we would have data for:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and then a gap of 55 minutes.  We can do better than this.
We can create an algorithm that will keep a rolling average of the last hour. This algorithm will have to keep track of 2 numbers:
- The total of the sum of all temperatures
- The number of data sets
Calculating the value of the 10:55 data point is easily done by dividing the sum by the number of data sets.The same needs to be done for the day and week series.
The best engineers will also cover corner cases like what happens if the server were we are keeping the data restarts.  Using our algorithm we just need to make sure we store our total and count for every of the series we are keeping.
As the old saying goes: „All roads lead to Rome“. But we want the one that will get us there faster and spending the least amount of resources. ___

Thanks to +Alan Dayley for sharing these slides on Agile.

Mile High Agile 2015 was last Friday in Denver. Two of my colleagues from +SolutionsIQ and myself led sessions during the one-day event. We had a lot of attendees in our sessions, easily obvious since 850+ were registered!

While reading slides is not the same as experiencing the session, these decks can give you some of the ideas we were talking about. Let me know if you have questions.___Thanks to +Alan Dayley for sharing these slides on Agile.

A different kind of quesadilla. Love the mix of cheeses.

Salvadoran Rice Cheese Cake recipe (Quesadilla).

At the request of the smart and wonderful, +Giselle Minoli, here is my recipe for Salvadoran quesadilla. (Salvadoran quesadilla is completely different from Mexican quesadilla: The Salvadoran Quesadilla is a sweet and delicious, soft and creamy cake with a hint of cinnamon.)

This is my own version, of course, so it's a little different than the typical recipe.  Also, this particular quesadilla was baked in a wood-fired oven, the same way it used to be done in El Salvador when I was little. To make the 3-tiered layer cake I made a double batch and put it into three nesting cake pans.

I grew up eating this wonderful treat, always with a cup of homemade hot chocolate. My mom taught me how to make this, except she doesn't use any eggs (she doesn't like them) so it's possible to skip the eggs if that's your preference. But you'll need to add a cup of buttermilk if you do that.

Salvadoran Rice Cheese Cake (Salvadoran Quesadilla)

1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup white rice flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground ceylon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup almond meal 
4 eggs
1 cup plain sheep milk yogurt, room temperature 
1 cup labneh cheese, room temperature (or creme fraiche or mascarpone cheese)
1 cup crumbled sheep feta cheese, room temperature 
1 cup grated parmesan or aged pecorino cheese
1/3 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sucanat (or organic sugar)
1 stick goat butter, room temperature or melted (or organic butter)
2 tablespoons cup raw sesame seeds

Preparation:

1 - Pre-heat oven to 350F

2 - Prepare rimmed cookie sheet by greasing it with butter and dusting it with rice flour until well coated. Discard of excess flour.

3 - Sift flour with baking powder, cinnamon and salt into a medium bowl (using sifter or medium mesh strainer). Add almond meal and mix until well combined and set aside.

4 - In a large bowl, using electric hand mixer or large whisk, beat the eggs until light and fluffy. Add sugar and continue to beat until well combined.

5 - In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer or whisk, combine yogurt, labneh, feta, parmesan or pecorino and vanilla until well mixed. Gradually add flour mixture and mix until well combined. Add egg mixture and mix until the batter is smooth  (tiny chunks of cheese are okay).

6 - Pour batter and spread evenly with a rubber spatula into the cookie sheet. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until it looks dark golden brown and it springs up at the touch of the finger and the edge pulls away from the edge of the pan. Remove from oven and allow to cool off on wire rack. Cut into squares and eat warm. Can be reheated for a soft consistency.

Variations: 

- For added nutrition, add 1/4 cup ground yellow flax seeds or 1/4 cup chia seeds mixed with 1/4 cup buttermilk (or organic milk)

- Use only whole grain brown rice flour

- Make it without eggs by adding one cup of buttermilk

Here is the cookie-sheet:

Great thoughts on bringing change...

Transformation Axioms

Agree or disagree? Either way, tell me more.

* An organization's successful transformation to Agile must include changes in process (teams, product definition, workflow, etc.), culture (ex. hierarchy, management, policy, etc.) and technology (ex. technical practices, architecture, automation, etc.).

* Changing these three areas at the same time is nearly impossible, at least to start.

* Process is where most organizations start and end their change.

* Without congruent change to culture and technology, change to process will be superficial or even damaging. 

* A significant part of the backlash against Agile ideas is a result of experiences with superficial and damaging process change without congruent culture and technology changes.

* Successful process change, even partial improvement can create the positive energy to trigger culture and technology change.

* People of passion and vision at all levels of the organization are the reason for success and positive change.

* If you are one of those passionate visionaries, you need to change your organization, or change your organization, so that improvements to work life and the world increase.

* Agile is not the point, it is a path. A better world is the point.___Great thoughts on bringing change...

This bridge crosses the main river and it has a beautiful set of stairs going up.  It fits within the city and its new monuments. It seems almost perfect except for one thing:  The original design had the floor made out of glass.  Of course this would be a nice touch except that the city where it was built has these days of non stopping rain all year long. 

When I spoke about the bridge with the waiter at the fantastic fish restaurant I had lunch he was telling me about the stories of the old ladies falling on the bridge because of it being so slippery.  He also mentioned another monument built by Mr Calatrava: The airport terminal building. Its a beautiful building that looks like a bird, except that this geometry together with the rain resulted in water leaks all over the place.

I was wondering how to avoid what I call "The Calatrava" trap.  In software we also sometimes design beautiful constructs that our customers like but the end users abhor.  What I believe to be the key is to understand that the customers are not always the end users.  

Let me give you another example. Another building by Mr Calatrava is a magnificent palace of congress in Valencia Spain.  Very futuristic lines. One small problem: Its made out of glass, which in the Mediterranean sun result in a fantastic warm green house. The costs of air conditioning for the building were horrendous last time I visited.  I am sure that the majors of the cities, both Valencia and Bilbao are very happy with their monuments. They show modern architecture, vanguard thinking.  But the citizens think otherwise.

What could Mr Calatrava done different:  Visit the places. I'm sure he did not realize that a glass floor in a bridge on a rainy city was not a safe thing, or that a glass building in a sunny city was an environmental disaster.  The buildings are beautiful, but not useful.  In the end the people help themselves. In this bridge in Bilbao they ended up with a large black carpet and nobody falls now.

So next time you are designing a software solution please think about the end users and not only about the customers.  Maybe that cloud backend based solution that your customers are so sold on, is not going to be a practicable solution once the end users start using it.

And yes, I do believe that an agile software development will help here, provided you have a product owner that will represent the end user as well as the customer.

There is one star architect: Santiago Caltrava whom I like.  The problem is that everywhere I go Mr Calatrava has designed beautiful architectural monuments but has forgotten the needs of the end users.  Take the example of this beautiful looking bridge in Bilbao, Spain.

This bridge crosses the main river and it has a beautiful set of stairs going up.  It fits within the city and its new monuments. It seems almost perfect except for one thing:  The original design had the floor made out of glass.  Of course this would be a nice touch except that the city where it was built has these days of non stopping rain all year long. 

When I spoke about the bridge with the waiter at the fantastic fish restaurant I had lunch he was telling me about the stories of the old ladies falling on the bridge because of it being so slippery.  He also mentioned another monument built by Mr Calatrava: The airport terminal building. Its a beautiful building that looks like a bird, except that this geometry together with the rain resulted in water leaks all over the place.

I was wondering how to avoid what I call "The Calatrava" trap.  In software we also sometimes design beautiful constructs that our customers like but the end users abhor.  What I believe to be the key is to understand that the customers are not always the end users.  

Let me give you another example. Another building by Mr Calatrava is a magnificent palace of congress in Valencia Spain.  Very futuristic lines. One small problem: Its made out of glass, which in the Mediterranean sun result in a fantastic warm green house. The costs of air conditioning for the building were horrendous last time I visited.  I am sure that the majors of the cities, both Valencia and Bilbao are very happy with their monuments. They show modern architecture, vanguard thinking.  But the citizens think otherwise.

What could Mr Calatrava done different:  Visit the places. I'm sure he did not realize that a glass floor in a bridge on a rainy city was not a safe thing, or that a glass building in a sunny city was an environmental disaster.  The buildings are beautiful, but not useful.  In the end the people help themselves. In this bridge in Bilbao they ended up with a large black carpet and nobody falls now.

So next time you are designing a software solution please think about the end users and not only about the customers.  Maybe that cloud backend based solution that your customers are so sold on, is not going to be a practicable solution once the end users start using it.

And yes, I do believe that an agile software development will help here, provided you have a product owner that will represent the end user as well as the customer.

Smarthomes, API's and using data to suggest actions

Last November I presented our Smarthome technologies at the Tibco Now conference in San Francisco.  The presentation was recorded and is now available over Youtube.

The talk is about why a smart home is more than just a bunch of network connected devices. In a smart home devices orchestrate their actions to adapt to the needs of its inhabitants.  I present 3 examples:
- First generation: You have some data like amount of solar energy being generated and you can remotely start an action like turning on the washing machine.
- Cloud based: Where the home is connected to the internet and interface for example with weather services to protect their blinds and awnings from extreme weather. 
- Data based, where usage data can be used to recommend ways to save energy or to increase the comfort of the users.... more »

Fairy tales in the software development

I have two friends that still believe in fairy tales. My friend Barbara believes in the healing power of stones and on buying organic Demeter food.  My friend Marcel believes that he can create a plan for a software project and stick to that plan.

I have been thinking what is common between Barbara and Marcel.  They both are quick to point out to literature, to well documented procedures, to practitioners and certifications.  What both fail to do is to measure the results of their actions against the original plans.

When I talk to Marcel and point to him that the world is not a static place, and that there are so many variables that will throw his carefully handcrafted plans I see him get lost in a myriad of reasons as of why he needs to plan everything before hest... more »

When I talk to Marcel and point to him that the world is not a static place, and that there are so many variables that will throw his carefully handcrafted plans I see him get lost in a myriad of reasons as of why he needs to plan everything before he starts.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Open_Group_Architecture_Framework)  I cant stop but compare with the detailed reasons that Barbara gives me for burying bull horns full of bull manure to create organic soil (http://www.kirchhof-oberellenbach.de/biodynamik.html) 

There is another parallel between Marcel and Barbara.  No matter how long you talk to them about the fallacies behind their ways they will not change their minds. They still believe their plan gives them control.

In the end both get lost and never show reproducible results.  Marcel creates so much overhead that the projects get suffocated and cancelled.  At least Barbara cooks fine food, despite her stones not healing her.

I will stick to my "chaotic" scrum and agile development processes and keep shipping products that are a good fit to the market.

Great article on transforming information into knowledge and knowledge into wisdom.

H.t. +Gideon Rosenblatt

Wired published this piece on artificial intelligence by +Kevin Kelly back in October and I finally got around to reading it today. It's quite good. There are two parts I would like to highlight for you. 

The first is what Kevin sees as the three critical factors that have led to the latest explosion of interest and real progress on the AI front in recent years: 

1) Inexpensive parallel processing for neural nets (thank you GPUs)
2) Big Data 
3) Better (deeper) algorithms (thank you Deep Learning)

The second thing to call out are Kevin's insights into what Google really is: an AI company. His early conversation with Larry Page is quite illuminating: 

Around 2002 I attended a small party for Google—before its IPO, when it only focused on search. I struck up a conversation with Larry Page, Google's brilliant cofounder, who became the company's CEO in 2011. “Larry, I still don't get it. There are so many search companies. Web search, for free? Where does that get you?” My unimaginative blindness is solid evidence that predicting is hard, especially about the future, but in my defense this was before Google had ramped up its ad-auction scheme to generate real income, long before YouTube or any other major acquisitions. I was not the only avid user of its search site who thought it would not last long. But Page's reply has always stuck with me: “Oh, we're really making an AI.”

I've thought a lot about that conversation over the past few years as Google has bought 14 AI and robotics companies. At first glance, you might think that Google is beefing up its AI portfolio to improve its search capabilities, since search contributes 80 percent of its revenue. But I think that's backward. Rather than use AI to make its search better, Google is using search to make its AI better. Every time you type a query, click on a search-generated link, or create a link on the web, you are training the Google AI. When you type “Easter Bunny” into the image search bar and then click on the most Easter Bunny-looking image, you are teaching the AI what an Easter bunny looks like. Each of the 12.1 billion queries that Google's 1.2 billion searchers conduct each day tutor the deep-learning AI over and over again. With another 10 years of steady improvements to its AI algorithms, plus a thousand-fold more data and 100 times more computing resources, Google will have an unrivaled AI. My prediction: By 2024, Google's main product will not be search but AI.

And if that's not enough for you, and you still want to dig deeper, here's a piece I did back in September that I consider one of my better pieces; it's on Google's work with the Knowledge Graph, and it largely echoes what Kevin is saying, but just with a more specific look at how Google is automating the extraction of knowledge from the human race:

Social media will transform the world as we know it. This book aims to explain the reasons behind the exploding popularity of this new medium. It is a collection of articles originally published in the online magazine mediatapper.com. I reflect in ideas from Csikszentmihalyi’s flow, to Pink’s Autonomy-Mastery-Purpose and Gladwell’s Mavens-Connectors-Salespersons to try to explain the social phenomena in which the wide acceptance of social media is based.
Social media adapts very well to basic human communication needs. It allows users to reach the flow state by creating a personalized experience paced to their needs. It also taps into the autonomy and mastery intrinsic motivators of users by providing them with timely feedback and allowing them to find like-minded people they can relate with.
_The variety of people and cultures that we meet on social media platforms represents our whole world, and it is important to understand them, either from their time perspective or from their language mentality. Social media technologies are the next link in the development of internet technologies. They have changed the pace and way that ideas or memes get created or passed around. 
Social media builds on hierarchy of popular people, but also on people that provide original thoughts. There are feedback mechanisms within social media that help connectors but also mavens to fine tune their postings._
In the end the social media sites resemble smart swarms that follow similar crowd rules that allow school of fish or beehives to behave as one organism. Some of this grouping result in a net increase of the IQ of humanity.
I hope that by reading this book you will understand better this brave new world of social media. I can only share my enthusiasm by this new set of technologies that allow us to communicate and enrich our lifes.___
