    AttachmentSize First draft of Connecting Dots presentation3.03 MB Blog topics: uxrpiI will be doing a presentation about user experience research-practice interaction (aka UXRPI) at the AIGA Design Educators conference Connecting Dots (March 14-15, 2014, Cincinnati, Ohio). Even though I am not a design educator, I thought it was worth proposing something to help find connections between the HCI researchers and User Experience practitioners, who I have been hanging out with, and design educators, who are asking questions about "what constitutes appropriate and effective research." And the…

  • Email addresses

    Sam Ruby
    28 Jan 2015 | 8:48 am
    I have been telling all non-IBMers to not use my ibm.com email address for years, but this advice is routinely ignored.  I’ve repeated the reaons behind why I ask this enough times that it makes sense for me to post the reasons in one place so that I can point to it. The back story is that 15 years ago I wrote some open source code in a programming language called Java.  I don’t use that language much any more, but I understand that it remains popular in some circles.  In any case, javadoc style comments encouraged sharing your email address, and my employer discouraged me from doing…

    Having determined that Angular.js is overkill for my blog rewrite, I started looking more closely at React.  It occurred to me that I could do better than JSX, so I wrote a Ruby2JS filter.  Compare for yourself.  Excerpt from the React tutorial: var CommentList = React.createClass({ render: function() { var commentNodes = this.props.data.map(function (comment) { return ( <Comment author={comment.author}> {comment.text} </Comment> ); }); return ( <div className="commentList"> {commentNodes} </div> ); } }); Equivalent using the Ruby2JS filter: class…
  • RFC 3986bis

    17 Jan 2015 | 10:55 am
    TL;DR: URL parsers consume URLs and generate URIs.  Such URIs are not RFC 3986 complaint.  I’d like to fix that. Let’s talk a bit about nomenclature. On the web, particularly in places like values of attributes named href, there are things that people have, at various times, attempted to call web addresses or IRIs.  Neither term has stuck.  In common uses these are called URLs. In between the markup and servers, there are user agents.  One such user agent is a browser.  Browsers don’t passively send URLs along, they reject some outright, and transform others.  There should be a…

    I have test results that show that there is much work to be done. The most likely path forward at this point is to get representatives from browser vendors into a room and go through these results and make recommendations. This likely will happen in the spring, and in the SF Bay Area. With that in place, I can work with authors of libraries in popular programming languages to produce web-compatible versions. This work will take the form of bug reports, patches, or — when required — authoring new libraries. Status by venue: WHATWG At the WHATWG, I’m limited only by my own ability to do…

    Nikon cameras have suffered from various battery related issues, caused by problems with the lens mount or firmware bugs.Recently my Nikon D300S, which had been a reliable companion and worked well under adverse conditions, started showing the dead battery syndrome quite frequently, and of course at the most inopportune times while shooting events. Cleaning the lens mount, replacing the battery and applying the long overdue firmware upgrade showed no noticeable improvement.The problem seems to be with the battery compartment door. With frequent battery replacements, the door wears out and no…

    When I applied for an internship at IBM, least I expected was a long-term career at Big Blue. My first summer job involved porting a commercial application from IBM System/36 to IBM AS/400 using RPG and the command language (QWRKSPLF, anyone?), copying and labelling the 8” release master floppy disks for another product and passing the quality assurance leader’s fierce interrogation on database normalization up to the fifth normal form.At the end of the two month cycle, I had a job offer in the mail to work in IBM’s Information Systems AD/M group, passed the interview and was ready…

  • Removing thumbnails from JPEG images

    Klaus Johannes Rusch
    1 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    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…

I got a bit tired of asking friends to use their wifi again and again, so I could continue with my day to day work routines, never mind as well embarrassing myself showing up at a local coffee shop time and time again while the monthly bill keeps getting more and more expensive with all of the additional beverages.

Complete switch-off from everything online. Would you be able to do it? And, if so, for how long?

    I backed the Double-O bike light Kickstarter project and use them for a while now. This is my verdict: TL:TR Highly functional light with clever features, some teething problems If you like to ride through the unlit woods at night, Double-O isn't for you, but that would. It is a commuter light with a rather clever design. The Good It is huge. With the LED arranged in a circle you get a big patch of light, a much bigger surface than the bike lights you commonly find in the market. That alone improves visibility quite a bit. Two of the 3 light modes are what you would expect: blinking and…

    In your mind you drank the cool-aid and got onto IBM Verse or went to the dark side. You web enabled all of your applications (smartly) and you are ready to turn off the Notes clients.

    In Notes client applications we are used to opening any document from a view and get it redered with the form specified in the Form (or the view's form formula). XPages behaves in a similar fashion when using the view control. However both approached open a new page (a tab in the Notes client, replaceing the current window in a browser). Modern applications however expect a Single page application behavior, where only parts of the screen are replaced with new information.

    Few subjects are as important, - or as challenging to predict, - as the future of jobs in our emerging digital economy. While the US unemployment rate continues to improve, - finishing 2014 at 5.6% or 8.7 million people, -  almost one third of the unemployed have been jobless for over 27 weeks.  The total number unemployed or underemployed, - what economists call the U6 unemployment rate, - stands at 11.2% or 17.4 million people.  And, the employment to population ratio remains at under 60%, the lowest such percentage since the 1970s.  “The economic challenge of the…

    Are engineering and management schools adequately preparing students for our fast-changing, highly complex business world?  Not quite, say a number of recent studies.  A good education should include soft as well as hard competencies.  Universities generally do a pretty good job when it comes to teaching hard skills, - engineering methods, technology, analytical tools, finance, marketing, and so on.  But they don’t do so well with the softer competencies, including communications, teamwork and systemic thinking.  For example, a 2007 study on MBA education found…
