data

I am used to throwing data at the problem. But it seems that these days people throw problems at the data — the data is a primary entity!

(Not everyone, including myself, agrees completely though)

is technology an evolution hack?

leave a comment »

Here’s an interesting TED talk by Kevin Kelly on how technology evolves: link (the TED video embedding does not seem to work because the share – link to the talk gives a wrong TED ID)

I wonder…. whether the blind watchmaker (as in the book title) has been one-upped.With technology evolution we can bring in elements of both biological evolution and design. Interestingly there is no extinction since everything is recorded and can be resurrected. What may not be a good tech proposition today may become so tomorrow and can proliferate. Interesting idea…. biological life too may pass out of vogue, giving room for technological life….

Is technology the next evolutionary step for the process of evolution itself? Is resistance futile? :)

idea !!!

leave a comment »

You know what’d be a neat idea — having a decoupling capacitor kind of system for the power systems. I have no idea the kind of losses that transients / high frequencies causes in power systems.

But it should be a really tough thing to do — or it would already have been done. Batteries are the only viable storage mechanism that we know about [citation needed] (not sure). And using batteries as energy decoupling is expensive on large scale — we are already doing that, batteries are acting as decoupling sources for portable devices and stuff :)….

Any ways an economically viable solution could get somebody damn rich — should be a smart thing to do….
