Project management software, online collaboration: Basecamp Mooklet for iPhone :: Create Animated "Photo Story Books" and Publish them! Flow | Online Task Management and Team Collaboration Software Topsy Pro Analytics Lets Users Analyze Over 100 Billion Tweets From The Last 2+ Years Topsy, the popular social search engine, has released a powerful new feature for marketers today deemed Topsy Pro Analytics. Different than the basic analytics offerings announced last year, the new Pro Analytics will allow users to see view and analyze more than 100 billion Tweets over the past several years. Unlike many social tracking tools, the licence that Topsy has to the Twitter Firehose allows the service to analyze all Tweets, not just a specific set of kephrases being tracked. Specific keyphrases can be mined down to provide more information thanks to the dynamic navigation options and comparison tools.

BitCoin Credit / Debit Card to Launch in 2 Months Says BitInstant - ...Because Technology Matters Giving a time frame of 6-8 weeks, Shrem said over an IRC chat session that the card shall function like any other credit or debit card and that it can be used at places where MasterCard is being accepted notes Coding In My Sleep. BitInstant co-founder has also said that the initial 1000 odd cards will be given for free and subsequent cards will carry a charge of around $10. Any transaction that is carried out through the card shall be levied with a 1% Bitcoin transfer fee on top of the $1.50 ATM withdrawal fee. So how will this whole mechanism work? Users can have balance on the card in BTC till the time they decide to make a payment or withdrawal. There is a sign-up form that has been made available through Google Docs but, it is not an actual signup form but more or less an expression of interest form.

A Carefully Selected List of Recommended Tools on Datavisualization When I meet with people and talk about our work, I get asked a lot what technology we use to create interactive and dynamic data visualizations. At Interactive Things, we have a set of preferred libraries, applications and services that we use regularly in our work. We will select the most fitting tool for the job depending on the requirements of the project. That’s why we have put together a selection of tools that we use the most and that we enjoy working with. Let me answer the most likely questions right away: No, not everything find its’ way into this list, so you might not find your personal favorite. Network Theory (Part 19) joint with Jacob Biamonte It’s time to resume the network theory series! We’re writing a little book based on some of these posts, so we want to finish up our discussion of stochastic Petri nets and chemical reaction networks. But it’s been a long time, so we’ll assume you forgot everything we’ve said before, and make this post as self-contained as possible. Last time we started looking at a simple example: a diatomic gas. A diatomic molecule of this gas can break apart into two atoms: and conversely, two atoms can combine to form a diatomic molecule: We can draw both these reactions using a chemical reaction network: where we’re writing instead of to abstract away some detail that’s just distracting here. Last time we looked at the rate equation for this chemical reaction network, and found equilibrium solutions of that equation. The master equation We’ll start from scratch. for the probability that we have atoms of and molecule of in our container. where we define to be zero if either or is negative.
