However, the entry will be judged only on the additions you've made, and not on the entire plug-in. The Atlassian developer community has already... (more)

So Many Questions, So Little Time (Part 1)

It’s another snowy day up here in Minneapolis, but earlier this week I had the pleasure of traveling down to tropical Kansas City.  Overland Park, KS, to be more specific.  And on that particular day we decided to try something new.  We (John Weston and I) asked our attendees to write down questions, topic areas, off-hand remarks, and comments on slips of paper during the event.  What we wanted to do was help facilitate some more discussion during our IT Camp. “IT Camp?  What’s that?” An IT Camp is like a TechNet Event without (or with minimal) PowerPoint.  It’s more of a discussion than a presentation.  It’s interactive, loose, and fun.  We have some topics to discuss and certainly some information to disseminate, but we want the conversation to be driven mainly by the audience. Anyway.. the reward for good questions was a T-Shirt.  And the result of this ask of ... (more)

Design the T-shirt for useR! 2014

The official T-shirt for the useR! 2014 R user conference (to be held June 30 - July 3 at UCLA) will be the result of open source contributions and reproducible research. The organizers of the conference are soliciting designs for the official T-shirt — but there's a catch. The image on the front of the T-shirt will be created entirely with R code, and the R code itself will be displayed on the back. If you've got an idea for the T-shirt, all you need to do is to submit your R code as a pull request to the official T-shirt Github project. The current design is the letter R filled with the phrases "useR!" "2014" and "Los Angeles." I'm sure there are better designs out there, so if you have one, go ahead and submit a pull request. Github: user 2014 t-shirt ... (more)

Taxi Magic Uses iBeacon to Silently Give Users Discounts

How would you feel being a walking advertisement? If you’re wearing a T-shirt with a company’s logo on it, that’s one thing. But your phone — in your pocket? That’s quite another, and it’s just what taxi hailing company Taxi Magic is doing with its iOS app. A new version being released this Thursday will let you beam out your referral code for the service to others, all using Apple’s iBeacon technology. These notifications won’t pop up for everyone though, just other Taxi Magic users who have downloaded the app and have it open, but have never ordered up a ride. They don’t have to type anything in, and you get a $10 credit if end up calling a cab. Taxi Magic is hoping the feature will reward existing users by getting them credit they can use on future rides, while encouraging new users to pull the trigger on their first.

Wearables Head to Tail @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #Wearables #Microservices

Have you sent Santa your list of all the wearables you’ll want under the tree this year? Maybe you’ve asked for a fitness tracker, a health monitor or that fancy new smart watch. But don’t stop there! As we continue to integrate technology with our desire for self-improvement and lifestyle control, a slew of wearables – from arm bands to socks to bras to a dog tail-wagging monitor – will be clipped, adhered, buttoned, inserted, ingested or worn to gather our vitals, movement and lives as we toast 2015 goodbye. Naughty or nice, if you’re still unsure which wearables you want watching you, Fjord (part of Accenture Interactive) has a nifty infographic showing the multitude of gadgets for various body parts.

IIoT Top News: Fly Away Drones, Fly Away

It is truly hard to keep up on the numerus ways drones are being used throughout our daily lives. This week’s IIoT Top News is dedicated to these unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), these wonders in the sky that come in all shapes and sizes, yet are all called drones. Now that we have these UAS in the air what purpose are they serving? Can drones be helpful? A new report by Forrester suggests that no additional disruption occurs with the use of drones in a commercial environment. The report further reminds us how they are being used to collect sensor data and video, and down the road they might help create automated delivery and autonomous inspection of infrastructure.
