She's a member of the Wikimedia Foundation, which governs Wikipedia. She's attending the international foundation conference next month in Taipei, Taiwan. Two Sacramento cancer...

Warning: The first half of the audio has static every 11 minutes or so. The static only lasts 10-15 seconds each time. Perhaps you're bored at your current job. Perhaps you're new to the tech job market. Perhaps your company lost funding and you were laid off. There are a million reasons why, but one common element: Sometimes we all have to play the job hunt game. And the game sucks. From unresponsive recruiters to pointless interview questions, a job hunt can be a demoralizing and dehumanizing...

It is time to put our most hard-held assumptions about children, parenting and education to the test of current science: and when we do so, we will find how erroneous some of those assumptions can be. For example, did you know: That exposing kids to day to day marital conflict may actually be good for them? That tests for “gifted” schools identify appropriate children only 37% of the time? That young children are more aggressive after watching television shows like “Arthur” than...

Audio from a talk given by Ken Gagne, publisher of Juiced.GS magazine, at KansasFest 2012. Juiced.GS is the only and longest-running Apple II publication in print. We haven't gotten this far simply by staying the course. You might not notice that every year, we are trying something new, whether it's innovating our flagship product or developing entirely new products. What will it be this year? Here's a hint: at KansasFest 2012, we won't have just one product to announce…. or two… or...

Audio from a session at KansasFest 2012. Using the theme of Classic Desk Accessories on the Apple IIgs, there will be a look at what it takes to program them using Orca/C (bring a computer with Orca/C and write a CDA in 10 minutes!). 8-bit programmers are encouraged to attend to leverage the CDA as a means to make software IIgs savvy. Examples of accessing the IIgs hardware from Orca/C will be given, including how to use the Apple II game port. Several brand new Classic Desk Accessories will be...

I will discuss the problem of cutting the (discrete or continuous) d-dimensional torus economically, so that no nontrivial cycle remains. This improves, simplifies and/or unifies results of Bollobas, Kindler, Leader and O'Donnell, of Raz and of Kindler, O'Donnell, Rao and Wigderson. More formal, detailed abstract(s) appear in http://www.math.tau.ac.il/~nogaa/PDFS/torus3.pdf and in http://www.math.tau.ac.il/~nogaa/PDFS/torusone1.pdf. Joint work with Bo'az Klartag. ©2009 Microsoft Corporation....
