Stevie Wonder's irresistible ode to jazz, explained Become a Video Lab member! http://bit.ly/video-lab Stevie Wonder is one of the most widely celebrated artists in history.

Jacob Collier is a rising star in his own right and is Stevie Wonder's self-proclaimed greatest fan.

USENIX Security '18-Q: Why Do Keynote Speakers Keep Suggesting That Improving Security Is Possible? - YouTube
James Mickens, Harvard University Q: Why Do Keynote Speakers Keep Suggesting That Improving Security Is Possible? A: Because Keynote Speakers Make Bad Life Decisions and Are Poor Role Models Some people enter the technology industry to build newer, more exciting kinds of technology as quickly as possible. My keynote will savage these people and will burn important professional bridges, likely forcing me to join a monastery or another penance-focused organization. In my keynote, I will explain why the proliferation of ubiquitous technology is good in the same sense that ubiquitous Venus weather would be good, i.e., not good at all. Using case studies involving machine learning and other hastily-executed figments of Silicon Valley’s imagination, I will explain why computer security (and larger notions of ethical computing) are difficult to achieve if developers insist on literally not questioning anything that they do since even brief introspection would reduce the frequency of git commits. At some point, my microphone will be cut off, possibly by hotel management, but possibly by myself, because microphones are technology and we need to reclaim the stark purity that emerges from amplifying our voices using rams’ horns and sheets of papyrus rolled into cone shapes. I will explain why papyrus cones are not vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks, and then I will conclude by observing that my new start-up papyr.us is looking for talented full-stack developers who are comfortable executing computational tasks on an abacus or several nearby sticks.

On this, the week of Avengers: Endgame, a couple of remarkable YouTubers assembled and each made a video describing One Marvelous Scene from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I took a moment from Avengers: Age of Ultron. I think The Afterparty is one of the best acted, written, and directed scenes the MCU has created thus far. Here's why. Watch all of the other One Marvelous Scene videos. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLd7v7nQLQGwKQxfPtUPz6i1h3-JVxBx0D AV Club Article - https://film.avclub.com/briefly-but-blissfully-age-of-ultron-plays-like-an-ave-1832662261 Shirt Designer - https://twitter.com/enkiimuto Patrick H Willems Series - https://youtu.be/u6Bq_jK0Z1Y MOSTLY NITPICKING PODCAST iTunes I https://apple.co/2lMcoVv Google I https://play.google.com/music/m/Itdzh...

Part 1 of 10: Engelbart and the Dawn of Interactive Computing: SRI's 1968 Demo (Highlights) - YouTube
On December 9, 1968, Dr. Douglas C. Engelbart and the Augmentation Research Center (ARC) at Stanford Research Institute staged a 90-minute public multimedia demonstration at the Fall Joint Computer Conference in San Francisco. It was the world debut of personal and interactive computing: for the first time, the public saw a computer mouse, which controlled a networked computer system to demonstrate hypertext linking, real-time text editing, multiple windows with flexible view control, cathode display tubes, and shared-screen teleconferencing. The 1968 demo presaged many of the technologies we use today, from personal computing to social networking.

1. Mentoring: Being the help you wish you'd had / Jo Franchetti / ffconf 2018 - YouTube
**Note** sound quality is bad for the first 90 seconds, and resolves thereafter. The tech industry is suffering; from bad role models and unrealistic expectations, from anxiety and impostor syndrome and from a lack of diversity, empathy and ethical consideration. Everyone, no matter how junior, can mentor and be a hero for someone else, for the industry and for yourself.

I Drove My Childhood Favorite Racing Game In Real Life - YouTube
When I was a kid, I played the demo version of Need for Speed II a lot. Just the demo: it came free on a CD with a monthly computer magazine. Every detail of that one demo track was stored in my head, long-dormant... until I ended up in Vancouver, and memories started surfacing in very odd ways.
