This comic strip of Jurassic Trek makes fun Kirk's...promiscuity?  ;-)

Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan

 Permalink

Apparently the Turkish President,  Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has never heard of the Streissand Effect . From the New York Times:

If President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey had hoped that summoning the German ambassador would get a video poking fun at him by a German satire program removed from the Internet, he was wrong. 
Instead, the move had any number of consequences, including provoking a diplomatic dust-up with Germany and a fresh round of ridicule of Mr. Erdogan for playing to type. 
After all, the video, by the comedy show “extra3,” was a song satirizing the Turkish president as a thin-skinned authoritarian who cracks down on journalists, the news media and opponents he does not like.
Not least, Mr. Erdogan’s move spurred a surge of online interest in the video, which by Thursday had attracted more than four million views — tenfold the program’s usual audience.

I'm 88 eh? You don't say!

 Permalink
The other day I took one of those silly Facebook tests. You know, the ones that ask you some limited amount of questions and they tell you something about yourself (your ideal profession, your age, your brain capacity, when you're going to die - whatever).  This is nothing new, I remember doing silly tests like these since I started surfing the web in 1995 (hey, remember the Spark, and their "SparkMatch"?). In any case, I guess this Facebook quiz deems that my age is 88 based on the books I prefer to read.  Wonder what algorithm gave them that :p

Concept Mobile Phone...looks pretty cool

 Permalink

I came across this concept mobile phone from Samsung.  Not sure if this is an actual thing, or just something that someone dreamed up (who doesn't work for Samsung).   The concept reminds me a little bit of the "global" which was used in the TV series Earth: Final Conflict, and the defunct idea by Microsoft (remember that tablet they were supposedly developing?)   I like this form factor.  I wonder if it's coming out to market soon :-)

Infographic στην δουλειά

 Permalink
Τις προάλλες κοίταζα κάτι παλιά email στην δουλειά να βρω κάτι πληροφορίες για το πρόγραμμά μας, και βρήκα το infographic που κάναμε για ένα Open House. Το open house είναι μια εκδήλωση που κάνει το πανεπιστήμιο για να δείξει στον κόσμο τα προγράμματά μας, τους καθηγητές μας, και να  έχουμε μια ανοιχτή ευκαιρία να κάνουν νέοι φοιτητές αίτηση στα προγράμματά μας.  Έτσι λοιπόν, για την εκδήλωση σκέφτηκα να κάνουμε infographic. Μαζέψαμε τα στατιστικά, τα στείλαμε σε γραφίστα, και να το! Κάναμε και ένα μεγάλο πόστερ (πρέπει να βρω φωτογραφίες γιατί θυμάμαι πως βγάλαμε) και πήγαμε στο Open House. Καινοτόμοι είμαστε το τμήμα μου (να μην το παινευτώ;) ) - μέχρι και ο πρύτανης ήρθε να μας δει ;-)

Να δω φέτος τι καινοτομία θα έχουμε...

Got this in the mail the other day.  I think more of us should be posting this on our pages ;-)

Captain Pike, where are you?

 Permalink
It's been a while since we've heard any peeps from the Captain Pike star trek fan film.  That's the one thing I dislike about crowdfunded stuff (even if I don't contribute to it) - the lack of information or progress reports. It would be nice to know that the people behind it are still chugging along - even at a slow pace.

I wonder if anyone in the 70's, when Atari came out, could have imagined this :)  A pocket Atari console, in an atari cartridge no less!
