About Bans on Face Recognition Technology

This year, Oakland and San Francisco, California, and Somerville, Massachusetts, all banned the government’s use of facial recognition technology and others are ‘pausing’ its use. This decision is being talked about a lot and it’s easy to see why. The technology has been growing in popularity in recent years and San Francisco was the first major US city to block its use. Silicon Valley tends to be an enthusiastic adopter of new technology, so the move surprised some, but face recognition technol...

Something to lose

I am currently involved in a couple of financial disputes. This isn’t normal for me and I’ve lost sleep over it. Several thousand pounds are at stake, most likely. Perhaps sneaking into five-figures. That sounds a lot of money – it is a lot of money – but I asked myself this morning why exactly is it bothering me so much? Is it the money – or is it something else? I can afford to lose the claims. It would represent a small hit to my net worth. I say that not to boast (many readers could brag ...

5 Ways VR/AR Technology Integrates Into Your Daily Life

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality aren’t ‘new’ technologies. Both were used in military applications since the 1980s and were later co-opted by the gaming industry. AR and VR have more to offer humanity, especially now that wearable technology like headsets, data gloves, and other feedback devices continue to improve and go down in price. Additionally, the infrastructure needed to support this immersive technology is slowly finding its place in cities around the world. As of this writing, th...

Should You Use More Than One Analytics Platform?

Most folks have Google Analytics (GA) installed on their websites these days. It’s easy to set up, user-friendly, and free! But as businesses grow (and run into some of the data sampling limitations of GA), it’s natural to start questioning some things: Is the data in GA trustworthy? Is GA’s channel attribution accurate? Am I missing events that occur on my website/app? Are my GA traffic numbers inflated by spam? That’s when you start exploring alternatives to Google Analytics, and there are ple...

The Difference Between Branded and Nobody #personalBranding

Almost two years ago I hung my shingle out and looked for a full-time job. I had JibberJobber at a point where it didn’t need (or want) my full attention, Pluralsight wasn’t ready for anymore of my courses… and I had time. I also needed a change of scenery. And heck, if I had time, why not look for something where I could get paid, and create one more income stream? So I did what I had been talking about others doing for years and I became a job seeker. It wasn’t as fun as it sounds, but it was ...
