Happy Friday! We have some more marriage equality updates, a timeline for future comic book movies, and the untimely passing of some notable people. Also, there’s a rather weird music/intelligence “study” with which I have some problems. Let’s get started:
“O Superman” is arguably the most well-known example of performance art, and that’s no coincidence. Anderson uses unique electronic components and haunting prose to create timeless pieces of auditory art.
These days, everyone seems to be using a different streaming service. Facebook is littered with notifications on what your great-aunt Prudence is listening to (who knew she liked Kanye?), and the options for streaming are approaching limitless. So how do you decide which service is right for you? How do you sift through the dozens […]
On Thursday, Facebook announced (via their blog) that they would begin the process of removing a privacy setting that was used by a minority of users: the ability to hide yourself from Facebook search results. Facebook removed the ability to set this from users who were not taking advantage of it last year and will […]
In case you needed any proof that cricket is different, consider this: Last Monday, England officially retained the Ashes. Since then, another four days of cricket have been played, and another Test will be staged next weekend. There has been the same amount of play, broadcasting and public discussion that would have happened had nobody […]
Women startup founders were representing during last week’s Launch Festival 2013, held in San Francisco.
“You should totally do a Vine for that.” “Did you see what Adam Goldberg is doing with Vine?” “Taco Bell just announced a new taco on Vine… how cool!?!” Vine is the newest word in the social media arena, but what the heck is it?
After years of just saying no, I have finally entered the world of iPhone users.
It’s a strange idiosyncrasy of folks my age to keep a stash of VHS tapes secreted somewhere in their house, no matter how technologically advanced they may be. Seriously, I don’t think I have one friend who doesn’t still own a beat-up 1989 copy of Tim Burton’s Batman, or the original Little Mermaid tape with […]
Last week, the Computer History Museum in Mountain View hosted the fifth annual Women 2.0 PITCH Conference. PITCH is a conference for women in tech to gather and mingle and learn from one another. Developers chat with venture capitalists, designers schmooze with product managers, and start-up founders hand out business cards like there’s no tomorrow. […]
It has been a few weeks since we introduced Persephone to Code Year! Now that the program is in its fourth week, Codeacademy has made some changes to the program to hopefully make things a little easier.
I have a love/hate/don’t look! relationship with social media. Meaning – I love it, I hate it and am somewhat mercurial regarding sharing it with the general public.
2012 could be a big year for Persephoneers with all of these challenges popping up! Here’s another brainy challenge for you. CodeAcademy is offering interactive computer programming lessons with Code Year for free online! It’s an awesome user friendly opportunity to learn something new and relevant to our technology driven world. By 2013, you could […]
I got a new smart phone today. I’m excited because it has a better camera and it has video capabilities. These are not features I even considered when I got my first mobile phone in the winter of 1997.
Incorporating technology in the classroom seems like a great idea. There are all these cool new tools thanks to the internet and the advances in computers, tablets, smartphones, and it’d be a shame not to use them. The problem? Figuring out how to use these tools effectively is more difficult than anyone anticipated.
