Google Glass for Police Officers

Wearable Computing for honest law enforcement

Why cant police officers in the USA (or the World) be asked to wear something like Google Glass ( or equivalent) with the records secure but ready to be subpoenaed in case of shootings or conflict. It was also add to security of police officers .

Heck why cant you add a small wearable computing /camera to every handgun?

Surely it could have prevented the unrest in Ferguson?

Basics of Analyzing Data #rstats #social #sma

A recent training I created and gave

 

 

Coursera is not a MOOC

Consider the hypothesis above and consider the facts below

massive open online course= Mooc

but coursera is not Open

1416322284676

  1. You cannot share Coursera content on Youtube or any non Coursera- this effectively ties in people to the website
  2. The Website does not use any social login or OpenID
  3. There is enough evidence of cross selling including branding, selling books and now 50$ certificates
  4. There is more vigor to get easily monetization course curriculum than to get subjects that are relevant to society ( eg job training for laid off workers in rural USA or for farmers in Africa or for textile mill workers in Bangalidesh)
  5. No effort in localization and customization or translation despite multiple avenues for machine learning enabled translation APIs (cough cough Machine learning= ML)
  6. Prof ML insists on using Octave and not R. Everyone knows Sheldon Cooper is more cool than Howard Wolowitz, yet Prof  ML  will say – it is easy to prototype using the latter and not the former. Plus he does not really update his slides too much
  7. With a 5% pass rate you actually dont care about the (students) education as they are just (money) bricks in your (fire) wall
  8. Blog posts are shared but data on usage and engagement is not shared openly or through an API
  9. Lame efforts at open sourcing the platform
  10. Lamer efforts at keeping clutter off the course search page ( Hint- Dont use Ctrl + F)

How to be a good blogger

1) Be Honest. Internet and Google are good at recognizing fakes

2) Always keep an eye on web analytics to receive feedback on what works and what does not work

3) Categories and Tags help people and search engines find your content easily

4) Trust in God but use Spell Check.

5) Interesting blog beats non interesting blog

6) Curiosity and Utility are the two things you need for a blog.

7) Artists steal. Bloggers get inspired. Search Engines catch thieves. So modify when you get inspired. Use original words

8) Benchmark with the best blogs in your subject. Read others. What does your blog aspire to do?

9) People who know CSS and HTML are better at changing blog layouts. Or people who are better at finding WordPress themes.

10) Plan your writing and always a few drafts handy.

11) Be regular in your passion for blogging. If you are not passionate about doing a good job out of it, you will NOT do a good job out of it.

12) Okay I have a superb blog. Where do I publicize without looking like a spammer?
