Marissa Mayer's 9 Principles of Innovation

Marissa Mayer's 9 Principles of Innovation
"There are two different types of programmers. Some like to code for months or even years, and hope they will have built the perfect product. That's castle building. Companies work this way, too. Apple is great at it. I tell them, 'The Googly thing is to launch it early on Google Labs and then iterate, learning what the market wants--and making it great.' "We have this great internal list where people post new ideas and everyone can go on and see them. "Since around 2000, we let engineers spend 20% of their time working on whatever they want, and we trust that they'll build interesting things. "Eric [Schmidt, CEO] made this observation to me once, which I think is accurate: Any project that is good enough to make it to Labs probably has a kernel of something interesting in there somewhere, even if the market doesn't respond to it. "People are blown away by the information you can get on MOMA, our intranet. "I used to call this 'Users, Not Money.' "This is one of my favorites. Related:  `test 1024

Startups, This Is How Design Works – by Wells Riley Mathematical Model Reveals the Patterns of How Innovations Arise Innovation is one of the driving forces in our world. The constant creation of new ideas and their transformation into technologies and products forms a powerful cornerstone for 21st century society. Indeed, many universities and institutes, along with regions such as Silicon Valley, cultivate this process. And yet the process of innovation is something of a mystery. A wide range of researchers have studied it, ranging from economists and anthropologists to evolutionary biologists and engineers. This approach has had limited success, however. Today, all that changes thanks to the work of Vittorio Loreto at Sapienza University of Rome in Italy and a few pals, who have created the first mathematical model that accurately reproduces the patterns that innovations follow. The notion that innovation arises from the interplay between the actual and the possible was first formalized by the complexity theorist Stuart Kauffmann. But this idea is hard to model for an important reason.

PaperBack Olly, the author of OllyDbg, presents his new open source joke: PAPERBACK v1.10 Updated by Michael Mohr Download PaperBack v1.10Download sources v1.10 PaperBack version 1.00 does not implement AES encryption properly. Specifically: a) The key used for (en|de)cryption in version 1.00 provides at most an effective key strength of less than 50 bits (and likely far less, perhaps on the order of 15-25 bits, depending on password quality) instead of the expected 256 bits. b) PaperBack version 1.0 implements ECB mode symmetric encryption. 2) AES key length is now selectable in paperbak.h via AESKEYLEN. 3) The included libraries are now packaged as binary .lib files.

PaperBack is a free application that allows you to back up your precious files on the ordinary paper in the form of the oversized bitmaps. You may ask - why? Paper is different. Oh yes, a scanner.

L’Afrique de l’Ouest, l'autre base arrière du djihadisme... Fermeté ! En un seul mot, c'est ainsi que l'on peut qualifier la condamnation de la Communauté économique des Etats de l'Afrique de l'ouest (CEDEAO) de l'attaque de la prison haute sécurité de Koutoukalé à l'est du Niger. L'organisation sous régionale a indiqué dans un communiqué daté de ce jeudi 20 octobre, qu'elle « condamne avec fermeté les attaques armées perpétrées au Niger, au Mali et au Burkina Faso ». Lire aussi : Le Niger dans l'œil du cyclone djihadiste Alors que la zone est aux prises avec des groupes armés liés à Al Qaïda au Maghreb islamique (AQMI), la région est, depuis quelques semaines, la proie de plusieurs attaques de groupes armés qui pourraient pousser à répondre par l'affirmative. Il faut dire que les attaques armées commencent dans la région ouest-africaine commence à devenir récurrentes. Suivez La Tribune Partageons les informations économiques, recevez nos newsletters

Khan Academy Logement social : une question à revoir Dossier : Les nouvelles politiques du logement Pourquoi consacrer un livre au logement social en Europe ? Claire Lévy-Vroelant Comme d’autres chercheurs avec lesquels j’étais en relation depuis des années dans le cadre de l’European Network for Housing Research, la question du logement social me préoccupait. Les échanges que nous avions au cours des conférences montraient d’inquiétantes convergences : pénurie de logements abordables et hausse des prix de l’immobilier dans les grandes villes, transformation du logement social en termes de quantité, de qualité, de peuplement, de management, d’image, impact sur les quartiers des opérations de rénovation urbaine… Dans le même temps, la comparaison n’est pas un exercice facile et d’autres insistaient sur les divergences, sur l’existence de systèmes d’habitat duals ou unitaires, sur les différences entre les régimes d’État providence. Vous parlez d’une « révision générale » du logement social. Que comparaison peut être raison !

Lewin's Leadership Styles: The Three Major Leadership Styles By Kendra Cherry Updated December 03, 2015. A leadership style refers to a leader's characteristic behaviors when directing, motivating, guiding and managing groups of people. Great leaders can inspire political movements and social change. They can also motivate others to perform, create and innovate. As you start to consider some of the people who you think of as great leaders, you can immediately see that there are often vast differences in how each person leads. Fortunately, researchers have developed a number of different theories and frameworks that allow us to better identify and understand these different leadership styles. The following are just a few of the most prominent leadership frameworks and styles that have been identified. Lewin's Leadership Styles In 1939, a group of researchers led by psychologist Kurt Lewin set out to identify different styles of leadership. continue reading below our video Play Video Let's take a closer look at the three styles Lewin identified: References:

National Institute Of Mental Health To Drop DSM Use By: Stephanie Pappas, LiveScience Senior Writer Published: 05/03/2013 03:43 PM EDT on LiveScience The National Institute of Mental Health is moving away from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, sometimes known as the psychiatrist's "bible," saying that patients deserve better. The change won't alter the way patients get diagnosed and treated in the clinic -- at least not for many years. Instead, researchers seeking to study mental disorders with National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) funding will be required to look at patients across traditional diagnoses, rather than limiting their studies to a single DSM diagnosis such as depression, for example. "Studies of biomarkers for 'depression' might begin by looking across many disorders with anhedonia or emotional appraisal bias or psychomotor retardation to understand the circuitry underlying these symptoms," NIMH director Thomas Insel wrote in a statement. The DSM's fifth revision, the DSM-5, is due out in May.

NetPublic - Accompagner l'accès de tous à l'Internet New Startup ViThera Labs Aims "Weaponized" Bacteria Drugs at Gut Diseases Ryan McBride8/10/10 Johannes Fruehauf says he started plotting his next move last fall after diminished capital reserves at his previous employer, Cequent Pharmaceuticals (now part of Marina Biotech), led the company to shrink its research staff from 24 people to six. Fruehauf, an inventor of Cambridge, MA-based Cequent’s gene-silencing technology, decided he wanted to launch his own biotech startup. “I thought it was time for me to look for greener pastures, and so I started ViThera,” Fruehauf said. Fruehauf, the co-founder and president of ViThera Laboratories, formed the startup in November 2009 to develop engineered bacteria that deliver therapies to the gut. ViThera, which plans to develop its first drug to treat the bowel disorders Crohn’s disease and colitis, is composed of half a dozen former Cequent researchers and others. “I’m still quite new to the business,” Fruehauf said, talking to me via Skype while on vacation on the Spanish island of … Next Page »
