Hackers Unite for Social Good The third Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) Hackathon kicks off in just a few days, bringing together hackers from all over the world to develop software for disaster relief and mitigation. The event spans December 4th and 5th with groups all over the world gathering in cities such as Buenos Aires, New York City, Singapore, and Mexico City. RHoK is hosted by Microsoft, Google, Yahoo!, NASA, and the World Bank and previous software solutions are already being implemented around the world and have helped save lives in both the Chile and Haiti earthquakes this year. "Random Hacks of Kindness goes to the heart of what we believe at Google; that the creative and cooperative use of technology can help make the world a better place and that collective intelligence is strength,” said Vint Cerf, Google Chief Internet Evangelist, in a press release.

Fibonacci Flim-Flam. The Fibonacci Series Leonardo of Pisa (~1170-1250), also known as Fibonacci, wrote books of problems in mathematics, but is best known by laypersons for the sequence of numbers that carries his name: This sequence is constructed by choosing the first two numbers (the "seeds" of the sequence) then assigning the rest by the rule that each number be the sum of the two preceding numbers. This simple rule generates a sequence of numbers having many surprising properties, of which we list but a few: Take any three adjacent numbers in the sequence, square the middle number, multiply the first and third numbers. The Fibonacci sequence is but one example of many sequences with simple recursion relations. The Fibonacci sequence obeys the recursion relation P(n) = P(n-1) + P(n-2). A striking feature of this sequence is that the reciprocal of f is 0.6180339887... which is f - 1. The ratio f = 1.6180339887... is called the "golden ratio" or "golden mean". Fibonacci Foolishness.

The Freenet Project - /index YUV Ejemplo de plano de color U-V , valor Y' = 0.5, representado dentro de la gama de color RGB. Una imagen junto con sus componentes Y', U, y V. YUV es un espacio de color típicamente usado como parte de un conducto de imagen en color. Codifica una imagen o video en color teniendo en cuenta la percepción humana, permite utilizar ancho de banda reducido para los componentes de crominancia, de esta forma, hace que los errores de transmisión o las imperfecciones de compresión se oculten más eficientemente a la percepción humana que usando una representación RGB "directa". Otros espacios de color tienen propiedades similares; entre las razones para implementar o investigar propiedades de Y'UV se encuentran tanto las de interactuar con televisión analógica o digital o equipamiento fotográfico que se ajusta a ciertos estándares Y'UV, como las de exploración artistica. El modelo YUV define un espacio de color en términos de una componente de luminancia y dos componentes de crominancia.
