Rodney Mullen, "The Art of Good Practice" - Strata 2014
 
09:40
http://strataconf.com/strata2014/public/schedule/detail/33736 Ever see a death-defying stunt and wonder, "How did he practice that without getting killed?" By peering into the layered nature of practice through the lens of what high-level pro skateboarders do, we'll investigate how the nuanced way in which they go about it can be the biggest determinant of success— especially at groundbreaking levels. Tuning the dynamic balance of the analytic methods by which we learn with the internal sense or feel for the whole of what we're learning is an art, specific to the individual as well as the task. The better we tune our practice, the more practice will make perfect. Don't miss an upload!

Simon Wardley OSCON 2014 Keynote: "Introduction to Value Chain Mapping"
 
13:10
From OSCON 2014: "Anticipating the Future: An Introduction to Value Chain Mapping." Apparently we are living through a time of disruptive innovation, with the creation of new value and the destruction of old norms. Cloud computing, Big Data, the rise of open source and the internet of things are all examples of this -- or so we are told. But whilst we all have inertia to change, disruption implies that the change is unexpected, even unpredictable. However, if you have 20 years to plan for something, can you really call it surprising, random or unexpected? Alas, it turns out that companies are being disrupted by broadly predictable changes. But how can this be? The problem is poor situational awareness to the point of blindness. In this keynote, I will present the general principles of industry change and describe what can and cannot be predicted. I will then examine how companies can better understand the environment around them and by anticipating the nature of change then manipulate the market in their favor through open techniques.

Rodney Mullen: "Build on a Bedrock of Failure" Keynote - Velocity Santa Clara 2014
 
12:46
Rodney Mullen's keynote from the 2014 O'Reilly Velocity conference in Santa Clara, CA. Watch our interview with Rodney Mullen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8sFEZqh8Ms Failure sucks, especially for skydivers and bomb-diffusers. For skateboarders, it's a necessary part of progress; hence, they develop a well-honed eye for risk assessment as well as a clarity to flush out what are real vs imagined dangers, giving rise to a confidence to go after more creative, daring, and better outcomes. This is why the best skaters tend to be the best fallers, because a kind of intuition for minimizing damage emerges, so seemingly catastrophic falls become sustainable, which eventually forms a hardened foundation that can hardly be attained in any other way. About Rodney Mullen (Almost Skateboards): Rodney Mullen is widely considered the most influential skateboarder in the history of the skateboarding. The majority of ollie and flip tricks he invented throughout the 1980's, including the flatground ollie, the Kickflip, the Heelflip, and the 360 flip are regularly done in modern vertical and street skateboarding. Despite Alan Gelfand's justifiable fame for inventing the ollie air (Gelfand's maneuver being primarily a vert or pool oriented trick) Mullen is responsible for the invention and development of the street ollie. The ability to pop the board off of the ground and land back on the board while moving has quite likely been the most significant development in modern skateboarding. This invention alone would rank Mullen the most important skateboarder of all time. John Rodney Mullen was born August 17, 1966 in Gainesville, Florida. Rodney began skating when he was 10 years old. His father opposed his desire to skate, but he agreed to buy Rodney's first skateboard on January 1, 1977, on the conditions that he always wore safety pads and he quit skating if he were ever to be injured. Rodney's first sponsorship came through Bill Murray, owner of Inland Surf Shop. Using a Walker skateboard, Rodney entered the Boys Freestyle Contest in 1977 at Kona skatepark in Jacksonville. He placed third, but that was enough to attract the attention of skateboard manufacturer Bruce Walker. Rodney was immediately sponsored by Walker Skateboards. For the next three years, Rodney claimed first place in every contest he entered. He went on to win nearly 30 contests, mostly in Florida. His success culminated with another win at the Oceanside Nationals in California. After placing first at the Oasis Pro competition in San Diego, Rodney began his professional career with the Powell-Peralta Bones Brigade in 1980. Throughout the decade, Rodney Mullen invented countless skateboarding tricks, including the flat-ground ollie. Although The invention of the flat-ground ollie was arguably his most significant addition to skating. It also allowed Mullen to further innovate the sport: the Kicklip, Heelflip, and 360 Flip are just three of his most popular tricks, all of which became standard tricks for street and vert skating. He appeared in Bones Brigade Videos in '84, '85, '87, and '88. Rodney also appeared in the 1988 film Gleaming the Cube, alongside actor Christian Slater. In 1992, alongside Steve Rocco, Rodney Mullen created World Industries. Throughout the 90's Mullen was featured in numerous videos, including World Industries' Rubbish Heap ('89), Plan B's Questionable ('92), Virtual Reality ('93), and Second Hand Smoke ('95). Some recent videos include the Rodney Mullen vs. Daewon Song series, Globe Opinion, and Almost: Round Three. In 2002, Rodney won the Transworld Reader's Choice Award for Skater of the Year, and started up the Almost skateboarding company. In 2003, he wrote an autobiography titled "The Mutt: How to Skateboard and Not Kill Yourself.

When you begin programming with JavaScript you might run across books, tutorials, and people who say "Everything in JavaScript is an object." While it's not 100% true (not *everything* is an object), it is *mostly* true. And sometimes this can be a bit surprising.

John Rauser keynote: "Statistics Without the Agonizing Pain" -- Strata + Hadoop 2014
 
11:48
From the 2014 Strata Conference + Hadoop World in New York City. There are two essential skills for the data scientist: engineering and statistics. A great many data scientists are very strong engineers but feel like impostors when it comes to statistics. In this talk John will argue that the ability to program a computer gives you special access to the deepest and most fundamental ideas in statistics. John’s goal is to convince the non-statistician engineers in the audience that the road to statistical fluency is much, much shorter than they think. About John Rauser: John has been extracting value from large datasets for over 20 years at hedge funds, small data-driven startups, Amazon, and now Pinterest. He has deep experience in machine learning, data visualization, on-line experimentation, website performance and real-time fault analysis. An empiricist at heart, “Just do the experiment!” is his favorite call to arms.

http://strataconf.com/strata2014/public/schedule/detail/33057 While the first big data systems made a new class of applications possible, organizations must now compete on the speed and sophistication with which they can draw value from data. Future data processing platforms will need to not just scale cost-effectively; but to allow ever more real-time analysis, and to support both simple queries and today's most sophisticated analytics algorithms. Through the Spark project at Apache and Berkeley, we've brought six years research to enable real-time and complex analytics within the Hadoop stack.

Jeff Dean: "Achieving Rapid Response Times in Large Online Services" Keynote - Velocity 2014
 
28:00
Jeff Dean's keynote from the 2014 O'Reilly Velocity conference in Santa Clara, CA. Today's large-scale web services provide rapid responses to interactive requests by applying large amounts of computational resources to massive datasets. They typically operate in warehouse-sized datacenters and run on clusters of machines that are shared across many kinds of interactive and batch jobs. As these systems distribute work to ever larger numbers of machines and sub-systems in order to provide interactive response times, it becomes increasingly difficult to tightly control latency variability across these machines, and often the 95%ile and 99%ile response times suffer in an effort to improve average response times. As systems scale up, simply stamping out all sources of variability does not work. Just as fault-tolerant techniques needed to be developed when guaranteeing fault-free operation by design became unfeasible, techniques that deliver predictably low service-level latency in the presence of highly-variable individual components are increasingly important at larger scales. In this talk, I'll describe a collection of techniques and practices lowering response times in large distributed systems whose components run on shared clusters of machines, where pieces of these systems are subject to interference by other tasks, and where unpredictable latency hiccups are the norm, not the exception. Some of the techniques adapt to trends observed over periods of a few minutes, making them effective at dealing with longer-lived interference or resource contention. Others react to latency anomalies within a few milliseconds, making them suitable for mitigating variability within the context of a single interactive request. I'll discuss examples of how these techniques are used in various pieces of Google's systems infrastructure and in various higher-level online services.

Mikey Dickerson Velocity NY 2014 Keynote: "One Year After healthcare.gov..."
 
28:15
From the 2014 Velocity Conference in New York City, Mikey Dickerson's keynote: "One Year After healthcare.gov: Where Are We Now?" healthcare.gov, possibly the most closely watched government IT project of all time, launched to intense media scrutiny on October 1, 2013…and spectacularly fell on its face. The next six months would be a watershed in the federal government, as a trillion-dollar agency came to grips with the fact that there was no product to buy, and no check they could write, to deliver a working website. Yet the site did eventually become functional, helped by what Time Magazine described as “a team of unknown coders and troubleshooters who dropped what they were doing in various enterprises across the country and came together in mid-October.” As best as we can in 25 minutes, we’ll catch you up on the legacy of healthcare.gov, the current state of the art in federal government technology, what has become of those formerly-unknown engineers, and what these all have to do with each other. About Mikey Dickerson (Federal Government | United States Digital Services Team): Mikey Dickerson worked in Site Reliability Engineering at Google from 2006 to 2014, modulo side trips to work on the Obama campaigns in 2008 and 2012. In 2013 he took one more leave of absence to join what became known as the “ad hoc” team that rescued healthcare.gov after its disastrous launch on October 1. He has been on a baffling through-the-looking-glass adventure ever since, including a move in August 2014 to become the Administrator of the newly created United States Digital Service.

Joseph Sirosh keynote: "A New Data Science Economy" -- Strata + Hadoop 2014
 
09:37
From the 2014 Strata Conference + Hadoop World in New York City. Software and the rise of cloud services have given rise to revolutionary new economies – creating new markets for everything from self-published books, music and videos to mobile apps. Only a few years ago, it would have been hard to imagine developers authoring a million apps for smartphones. But that’s history. Cloud-centric economies are permanently changing the way people author and create in the knowledge economy – whether it be authors or developers – and soon, even data scientists. Joseph Sirosh will share his conviction that the next big software economy will be the Data Science Economy – one where data scientists build predictive models and intelligent services that can be published and monetized as easily as apps for the mobile phone. About Joseph Sirosh: I am a Corporate Vice President at Microsoft, and head the Information Management and Machine Learning group. Our talented team of scientists and engineers are developing Cloud ML services and tools to transform data at scale into intelligence. We are taking the wealth of ML capabilities in Microsoft Research and Product Groups and making it available commercially on Azure. Our first-class ML algorithms, services and tooling will help developers build amazing next-generation ML apps in the cloud and help ML become pervasive across a wide range of future scenarios. Prior to Microsoft I worked at Amazon as VP for Global Inventory Platform and CTO of the core retail business and I was VP of R&D at Fair Isaac Corporation before that. I am very passionate about ML and its applications and have been active in the field since 1990.

Rodney Brooks: "Intelligent Machines are Different" - Solid 2014 Keynote
 
13:37
From the 2014 Solid Conference: In the old days software seemed pretty deterministic. If you ran your program 10 times it got the same answer all ten times. Once software was connected to the internet however, the results became less deterministic. Apart from network delays and connectivity issues we are never surprised when search results for the same query change from day to day, or respond in different ways depending on what email we've recently received. And our smart phones change the things they can do as their software is upgraded. We've gotten used to that and expect it. But mostly we still expect our machines that do physical work to act the same way, day to day. We expect our car to perform pretty much the same today as it did last week, and our coffee grinder to grind just as before. But as our machines become more intelligent and as their software is continuously updated they are going to surprise us more and more as they change their behavior with macro scale impacts in the physical world. And some customers for machines don't like that. We're all going to take a while to get used to a new class of physically interacting machines, that continually surprise us, in our daily lives. About Rodney Brooks (Rethink Robotics): Rodney Brooks is the Panasonic Professor of Robotics (emeritus) at MIT. He is a robotics entrepreneur and Founder, Chairman and CTO of Rethink Robotics (formerly Heartland Robotics).

Ivan Poupyrev: "Beyond Gadgets: Interactive Everything" - Solid 2014 Keynote
 
09:40
From the 2014 Solid Conference: The digital revolution is over. The bits won and have invaded every aspect of our life, changing the essence of how we live, work, and play. Information is no longer confined to the pixels on our screens. Instead the entire physical world, even living and breathing matter, are being infused with data and code demanding new, unprecedented forms of interactivity. In this talk, Ivan Poupyrev argues that the success of this brave new world where real and virtual is seamlessly merged will depend on inventing technologies and designs that can add intuitive, fluid interactivity to the world on a very large scale. Ivan presents his recent research in this direction including sensing and actuation, visual and tactile, energy harvesting and and the fine art of growing digital plants. Although everything he develops has immediate applications in the world of today, it is the dream of a better and brighter tomorrow, a "conditional optimism" for the human race as emphasized once by Walt Disney, which drives his work. About Ivan Poupyrev (Google): Dr. Ivan Poupyrev is an award-winning scientist, inventor and designer who is creating cutting edge interactive technologies blending digital and physical realities. Ivan is currently Technical Program Lead at Google ATAP division. Prior to Motorola he was at Walt Disney Imagineering and Sony CSL in Tokyo.

Rodney Mullen (Almost Skateboards) Interview - Velocity Santa Clara 2014
 
14:37
Professional skateboarder Rodney Mullen discusses skateboarding as a philosophy, the importance of failure, and open source communities at the 2014 Velocity Conference in Santa Clara. Watch Rodney's keynote here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiSiY9iWrMU About Rodney Mullen (Almost Skateboards): Rodney Mullen is widely considered the most influential skateboarder in the history of the skateboarding. The majority of ollie and flip tricks he invented throughout the 1980's, including the flatground ollie, the Kickflip, the Heelflip, and the 360 flip are regularly done in modern vertical and street skateboarding. Despite Alan Gelfand's justifiable fame for inventing the ollie air (Gelfand's maneuver being primarily a vert or pool oriented trick) Mullen is responsible for the invention and development of the street ollie. The ability to pop the board off of the ground and land back on the board while moving has quite likely been the most significant development in modern skateboarding. This invention alone would rank Mullen the most important skateboarder of all time. John Rodney Mullen was born August 17, 1966 in Gainesville, Florida. Rodney began skating when he was 10 years old. His father opposed his desire to skate, but he agreed to buy Rodney's first skateboard on January 1, 1977, on the conditions that he always wore safety pads and he quit skating if he were ever to be injured. Rodney's first sponsorship came through Bill Murray, owner of Inland Surf Shop. Using a Walker skateboard, Rodney entered the Boys Freestyle Contest in 1977 at Kona skatepark in Jacksonville. He placed third, but that was enough to attract the attention of skateboard manufacturer Bruce Walker. Rodney was immediately sponsored by Walker Skateboards. For the next three years, Rodney claimed first place in every contest he entered. He went on to win nearly 30 contests, mostly in Florida. His success culminated with another win at the Oceanside Nationals in California. After placing first at the Oasis Pro competition in San Diego, Rodney began his professional career with the Powell-Peralta Bones Brigade in 1980. Throughout the decade, Rodney Mullen invented countless skateboarding tricks, including the flat-ground ollie. Although The invention of the flat-ground ollie was arguably his most significant addition to skating. It also allowed Mullen to further innovate the sport: the Kicklip, Heelflip, and 360 Flip are just three of his most popular tricks, all of which became standard tricks for street and vert skating. He appeared in Bones Brigade Videos in '84, '85, '87, and '88. Rodney also appeared in the 1988 film Gleaming the Cube, alongside actor Christian Slater. In 1992, alongside Steve Rocco, Rodney Mullen created World Industries. Throughout the 90's Mullen was featured in numerous videos, including World Industries' Rubbish Heap ('89), Plan B's Questionable ('92), Virtual Reality ('93), and Second Hand Smoke ('95). Some recent videos include the Rodney Mullen vs. Daewon Song series, Globe Opinion, and Almost: Round Three. In 2002, Rodney won the Transworld Reader's Choice Award for Skater of the Year, and started up the Almost skateboarding company. In 2003, he wrote an autobiography titled "The Mutt: How to Skateboard and Not Kill Yourself.

Neil Gershenfeld: "The Third Digital Revolution" - Solid 2014 Keynote
 
18:14
From the 2014 Solid Conference: Analog telephone calls degraded with distance; digitizing communications allowed errors to be detected and corrected, leading to the Internet. Analog computations degraded with time; digitizing computing again allowed errors to be detected and corrected, leading to microprocessors and PCs. Manufacturing today remains analog; although the designs are digital, the processes are not. Neil Gershenfeld presents emerging research on digitizing fabrication by coding the construction of functional materials, and explores its implications for programming the physical world. About Neil Gershenfeld (MIT Center for Bits and Atoms): Prof. Neil Gershenfeld is the Director of MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms. His unique laboratory is breaking down boundaries between the digital and physical worlds, from creating molecular quantum computers to virtuosic musical instruments. Technology from his lab has been seen and used in settings including New York's Museum of Modern Art and rural Indian villages, the White House and the World Economic Forum, inner-city community centers and automobile safety systems, Las Vegas shows and Sami herds. He is the author of numerous technical publications, patents, and books including Fab, When Things Start To Think, The Nature of Mathematical Modeling, and The Physics of Information Technology, and has been featured in media such as The New York Times, The Economist, NPR, CNN, and PBS. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, has been named one of Scientific American's 50 leaders in science and technology, as one of 40 Modern-Day Leonardos by the Museum of Science and Industry, has been selected as a CNN/Time/Fortune Principal Voice, and by Prospect/Foreign Policy as one of the top 100 public intellectuals. Dr. Gershenfeld has a B.A. in Physics with High Honors from Swarthmore College, a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Cornell University, honorary doctorates from Swarthmore College and Strathclyde University, was a Junior Fellow of the Harvard University Society of Fellows, and a member of the research staff at Bell Labs.
