Seven Angels

Seventh sensers don’t just see unused autos and drivers with some extra time on their hands. They envision what happens when those unused autos and drivers are connected to those in need of a ride.

Seventh sensers create communities--“gatelands” with borders--for which they serve as powerful gatekeepers. And they know how to design software that serves as a platform on which other things can be provided to those in the gateland.

The Music (R)Evolution

Orfium elegantly blends a full-featured music store, music social network, and licensing platform with a powerful back-end for rights management while also providing the most flexible and fair terms for artists. Orfium’s mission is to provide an open, elegant, and flexible music platform that puts artists and rights holders in control of all forms of promotion, retail, licensing, and distribution of music in the digital age, and to provide fans with the best discovery, sharing, and listening experience.

There's a new kids on the block, and they are called Orfium.

In search of the new technology of music, as every good software company does, Orfium is far from perfect and is being updated every day. This is how real things , you, me that neighbour work. Everyday living.

Dou you think Orfium is a s tech company? Nope, you're wrong. Think of Apple.

Apple changed the way we used tech on October 23, 2001. They focused on something other companies did not care off, something that makes us happiest, or sadddest, everyday. Something and that is floating everywhere. That something is called music. For those of us who were there that -- the Ipod -- was a (R)Evolution.

Why all those tech billionaries corps did not have that idea of computer device ?  Because a team of minds behind had the strange ability to foresee the future. And foreseen has nothing to do with tech. Later on, quoting Chris Messina's recent essay, Jobs revealed the iPhone and changed computing forever.

So, these new kids at Orphium have the idea of change in their minds. No massive engineering team, no billionaire investors, simply attention to detail and willingness to listen. They have the capability to see the unjustice of other platforms and they have built their own. They have future.

Enough. I am using Orphium every single week,  and you should do it, too.Take a seat. Put your earphones. Enjoy.

Trust In Me

Every software company interested in sticking around for the long term is investing in machine learning and other AI technologies that should help automate mundane tasks that we humans usually hire assistants to help us cope with.

The real question is not how long it will take for these capabilities to become useful, but rather how long will it take for us to trust them.
Quoted from an essay by Heather Clancy, in a terrific Monday mood. At Fortune, worth a read.

What is This?

Due to a desire to have some format available for HTTP PATCHing JSON files, json-patch saw the light, specially to avoid the waste of bandwidth and processing time for large resources, like in occurs in ART, for example.

For this you have to know and be comfortable with the PATCH method. A JSON Patch document is a sequential list of operations to be applied to an object.
If you have a use case, problem or idea, please have a look through the issues list; if you can't find something that covers it, please submit a new issue, with as complete a description as possible.

 Concrete proposals for syntax and semantics are always best.

You may want to help this project by bringing your abilities in its correspondant GitHub repo or branch.

 As well says Kevin, there is no reason not to adopt the HTTP PATCH today.


As a Human Being

In-depth analytical work is the crucial first step in addressing gray-area problems. But it doesn’t dispel the gray. That only happens when someone steps forward and makes a decision, based on his or her judgment, as a manager and a human being, and bases this judgment on the long-standing, powerful ideas described in the book.

The Importance To Be Connected

 
When Watson was going to be playing live contestants, it could not be connected to the Internet. Therefore, the IBM team had to really have a very broad search on their data sources, and then be able to assess the different probabilities for the different answers and create a confidence score that would tell them how much confidence Watson had in the answer.

The importance to be connected, exposed in an interview titled Behind IBM's High-Risk Decision to Put Watson on 'Jeopardy' with  Professor Shih.
