I've watched a few TED talks, but it's far different being there in person with those big red TED letters sitting on the stage. About 500 people attended, a mix of IBM clients, partners, industry figures, visionaries, and IBMers. We heard about a dozen different talks - half from IBMers and half from industry voices. There was some entertainment, some intrigue, and some Twitter trending topics (#TEDatIBM and #SharingInspires). The talks were interesting. Some were validating, such as…
  • ICON UK 2014: IBM’s Social Business Transformation

    Ed Brill
    16 Sep 2014 | 5:45 am
    It has been a busy three months since my new position as Vice President, IBM Social Business Transformation was announced. Immediately after starting my new role, I left for Taiwan for a three-week assignment on an IBM Smarter Cities Challenge project team. The philanthropic experience was everything I expected and then some. I returned to the US at a new address - my family had moved to a new home across town, just before my flight to Taipei. The next few weeks were an adjustment - new home, new job, and making up for the loss of several weeks of summer cycling. When Tim Clark contacted me a…
  • New role: Social Business Transformation at IBM

    Ed Brill
    23 Jun 2014 | 11:27 am
    Earlier today, it was announced internally at IBM that I have taken on a new role. I am moving into our corporate organization as Vice President, Social Business Transformation. In this position, my team and I are responsible for advancing IBM's maturity as a social business, and continuing the development of a culture of participation. My predecessor in this role, Bethann Cregg, has left some pretty large shoes to fill. Several programs and tools are in place in IBM today to help our employees reach the right experts, engage more directly with our clients, and convert knowledge into action.

    In my last blog entry, I covered the announcement of the IBM Watson Mobile Developer Challenge. The Watson Mobile Developer Challenge is designed to catalyze mobile developers to explore the opportunity around mobile cognitive computing - bringing the power of Watson to a smartphone or other mobile device. Entrants submit proposals for mobile apps, and the finalists - to be announced at IBM Impact 2014 - will receive access to IBM Interactive Studios experts and Watson APIs in order to bring their vision to reality. In the 30 days since the Challenge was announced, there has been tremendous…

  • email2pdf – “Automatic” Conversion of Emails to PDFs

    andrewferrier
    28 Sep 2014 | 7:33 am
    Like many folks, I am increasingly trying to go paperless, and am basing this strategy around the PDF format. I already have some good workflows set up with my network scanner to scan documents to PDF, which get automatically transferred to the desktop of my Mac for myself to file using rsync. However, I also get a lot of emails which I’d like to capture in PDF format. Currently, for each one, I have to go into my email program, and ‘print them out’ using a PDF printer. It’s not too difficult, but it can still be a hassle when there are several to process. What…
  • Getting Logitech Presenter R800 Working with Keynote on Mac

    andrewferrier
    12 Oct 2012 | 2:51 am
    Recently I attempted to get my Logitech Presenter R800 working with Keynote on my Mac. I swiftly discovered that although it works with PowerPoint for Mac out-of-the-box, in Keynote the ‘start/stop presentation’ and ‘blank presentation screen’ keys didn’t work. After a bit of investigation, I found the solution, which was to use KeyRemap4MacBook. The presenter tool behaves like a USB keyboard, and uses  for blank screen, and F5 for show/hide presentation. I installed KeyRemap4MacBook, and installed a private.xml based on the one on this page for a slightly…
  • Fixing initrd to Regain Ubuntu Encrypted Root Prompt on Boot

    andrewferrier
    24 Sep 2012 | 2:02 pm
    Recently, I upgraded my Ubuntu 12.04 server, which uses an encrypted root directory (with LVM and LUKS). Unfortunately, somewhere along the way the upgrade broke the boot process – next time I booted, it hung for 5 seconds, then timed out and dropped to a BusyBox prompt. I quickly found a workaround which allowed me to manually intervene and continue the boot each time: cryptsetup luksOpen devsda5 root exit Of course, however, I didn’t want to intervene on every boot, especially since this is normally a headless server. To fix it longterm, I eventually found this link, which…
  • Correcting iPhone photo filenames

    andrewferrier
    10 Jun 2012 | 1:54 pm
    Sometimes, when uploading photos from my iPhone’s camera roll (for example, when using Dropbox), the photo filename format ends up looking like this: Photo 16-03-2012 21 21 10.jpg This isn’t very nice. Much better to have something in ISO-8601 format, which sorts nicely in file listings, and so on. So I wrote a quick bash script to search for all the files in the current directory (and subdirectories), and rename them to this style: Photo-2012-03-16-21-21-10.jpg You can find it on github. Please note that the script renames files immediately, with no confirmation. It depends on…
  • Compiling FlightGear 2.4.0 for Ubuntu Linux 10.04 (Lucid)

    Update 2011-08-26: If you are using Ubuntu 11.04 or later, it looks like this is now packaged as a .deb by PlayDeb. This post may still be of interest to those using earlier versions of Ubuntu. I recently had cause to install FlightGear 2.4.0 on Ubuntu 10.04. It’s not packaged in the form of a deb yet, so I’ve documented the commands I used. No guarantees this’ll work for you, as I haven’t tested them rigorously; and I’m assuming some Linux and command-line knowledge. Install some dependencies (this may not be a complete list; it’s simply the set I was…

    Years ago, when I was in Charlotte NC working on a new document database named CouchDb, it sounded (at the time) about as sexy as a bowl of diarrhea and I had bunch of code that didn't quite work and our savings were shrinking every month. I was embarrassed to tell people what I was working on. And I made a decision to stop being a coward and commit to what I'm doing. I pasted a sign onto my monitor. "Commitment: Learn it, Live It" as a reminder to be all in on this. To not feel like a fool for pursuing a path when I was in over my head. Every day was a struggle to make progress. A battle to…

    It's been a year since my I "separated" from my high school sweetheart, the love of my life. We'd been married for 16 years at the time, and struggling for the last 6. I left Couchbase mostly because I wanted to get away from the stress of startup life and find a way for us make things work. I cashed in some stock to take time off but things only got worse, and the pain of leaving Couchbase, who made up most of my friends, while also our marriage was filled with conflict, was too much. I think it's CouchDB and then Couchbase, and how far I took it, that was a big factor for our problems. I…

The thing I miss most are the great people there, super bright hard working folks who amazed me on a daily basis. Which, ironically, was the thing that made it easy to leave. Seeing the different teams taking the ball and running with it without me leading the charge. Things at Couchbase grew and matured so fast I started to realize I couldn't keep up without spending way more time working. I was no longer the…

Building a distributed database is a peculiar thing. Building a startup that sells distributed databases is a very peculiar thing. It did something weird to my brain. I'm still not sure what happened. That moment in chess when I see the mistake, and it suddenly feels like the blood drains from my head. For me it's when the game is decided. Win or lose, it was a mistake to play at all. I didn't want to lose. I didn't want to win. I…
  • Dynamo Sure Works Hard

    Damien Katz
    3 May 2013 | 10:06 am
    We tend to think of working hard as a good thing. We value a strong work ethic and determination is the face of adversity. But if you are working harder than you should to get the same results, then it's not a virtue, it's a waste of time and energy. If it's your business systems that are working harder than they should, it's a waste of your IT budget. Dynamo based systems work too hard. SimpleDB/DynamoDB, Riak, Cassandra and Voldemort are all based, at least in part, on the design first described publicly in the Amazon Dynamo Paper. It has some very interesting concepts, but ultimately fails…

    I’ve been looking into differences between the WHATWG URL Living Standard and the combination of RFC 3986 and RFC 3987.  I’ve come up with an indirect but effective way to identify the differences.  To start with I downloaded urltestdata.txt and urltestparser.  I then wrote a small script to convert the test data into json. I then wrote another script to take this data and pass it through what is advertised as a closely conforming implementation of the relevant RFCs. Looking at the results, the first set of issues related to the stripping of leading and trailing whitespace, so I…

    tl;dr: shipping is a feature; getting the URL feature well-defined should not block HTML5 given the nature of the HTML5 reference to the URL spec. This is a subject desperately in need of an elevator pitch.  From my  perspective, here are the three top things that need to be understood: 1) From an HTML5 specification point of view, there is no technical difference between any recent snapshot of the WHATWG specification and anything that the WebApps Working group publishes in the upcoming weeks. 2) The URL spec (from either source, per above it doesn’t matter) is as backwards compatible to…

    JPEG images downloaded from a digital camera often contain thumbnails in the EXIF metadata, which Windows 7 appears to use for the thumbnails shown in folders.Unfortunately not every image editor also updates the thumbnails. As a result, changes to images are only visible on the full image, not on the thumbnail preview.That's where the marvelous ExifTool library and command-line application by Phil Harvey come into play. This one-liner removes the thumbnail image and related size information, and sets the file modification timestamp to the capture timestamp:exiftool -if…

Still making friends with the non-blocking approach of vert.x, I'm taking baby steps forward. In this round I want to be able to deliver a view or folder as JSON string. On a Domino server that is easy. You can use ?ReadViewEntries&OutputFormat=JSON. On a Notes client you have to do it yourself. In round one I will ignore categorized views (that's for the next time), but I already will massage the JSON to be leaner. After all why send it over the wire what you don't need. So I have a…

    Unless you stuck in the last century, you might have noticed, that the gold standard for version control is GIT. Atlassian likes it, IBM DevOps supports it and of course the Linux Kernel is build with it. The prime destination for opensource projects is GitHub, with BitBucket coming in strong too. Getting the code of a project you work with (and I bet you do - jquery anyone) is just a git clone away. Of course that opens the challenge to keep up with all the changes and updates. While in the projects you work on, a branch, pull and push is daily work - using the command line or a nice UI. For…

    Websites need to be secure, so the SHA-1 cipher is coming to an end. Despite best efforts, Domino is stuck with this outdated Cipher. While you can, on Windows, hide Domino behind IHS, I find nginx easier to tame. Jesse explains how to configure nginx as the Domino proxy. So all is good, expecially since he also covered High availability. But when you have a lot of sites, that's a lot of typing (and copy & paste from the Internet site documents).

  • Detecting bootable IBM Power server ISO images

    19 Oct 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Most ISO images use an ISO 9660 extension that allows the image to be bootable by the basic input/output system (BIOS). IBM Power Systems firmware, on the other hand, does not use such extension. This means that the detection of the bootability of images differ between computer architectures. In software such as hypervisors or even virtual machine (VM) managers, this detection can't consume too many resources and take too much time due to the number of the images they need to manipulate. This makes options like such as trying to boot the image by trial and error or even trying to mount…
