Richard Carlson said “Stop Thinking & Start Living” Byron Katie said “When you argue with reality you lose – but only 100% of the time” Yogananda said “You don’t need to seek understanding outside yourself – everything you want to know exists within yourself” Jean Klein said “Living is to be found in the timeless now” Barry Long sums it up in four words: “Only now is real” A very simple message and yet it is all too easy to become distracted away from the present moment.

Advanced Scientific Programming in Python [start] Scientists spend more and more time writing, maintaining, and debugging software. While techniques for doing this efficiently have evolved, only few scientists have been trained to use them. As a result, instead of doing their research, they spend far too much time writing deficient code and reinventing the wheel. In this course we will present a selection of advanced programming techniques, incorporating theoretical lectures and practical exercises tailored to the needs of a programming scientist. We use the Python programming language for the entire course. This school is targeted at Master or PhD students and Post-docs from all areas of science. Download the original announcement: pdf You can apply on-line. Applications must be submitted before 23:59 UTC, May 1, 2014. No fee is charged but participants should take care of travel, living, and accommodation expenses. Candidates will be selected on the basis of their profile.

Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation Online whiteboard & online collaboration tool | RealtimeBoard Open Source This decade has clearly marked a sea change in the move of enterprise software from proprietary to open source, as I have recently discussed [1]. It is instructive that only a mere six years ago I was in heated fights with my then Board about open source; today, that seems so quaint and dated. Also during this period many have noted how open source has changed the capital required to begin a new software startup [2]. Open source both provides the tooling and the components for cobbling together specialty apps and extensions. Six and seven and even eight figure startup costs common just a decade ago have now dropped to four or five figures. But something else has been going on that is changing the face of enterprise software (besides consolidation, another factor I also recently commented on). The Obsolete Recent Past Even if it were not dying, it is hard to square huge investments in sales and marketing when product development has become inexpensive and agile. A New Marketing Paradigm
