diigo Turn Detroit into Drone Valley

"But policymakers shouldn't be trying to copy Silicon Valley. Instead, they should be figuring out what domain is (or could be) specific to their region?and then removing the regulatory hurdles for that particular domain. Because we don?t want 50 Silicon Valleys; we want 50 different variations of Silicon Valley, all unique from each other and all focusing on different domains.

Imagine a Bitcoin Valley, for instance, where some country fully legalizes cryptocurrencies for all financial functions. Or a Drone Valley, where a particular region removes all legal barriers to flying unmanned aerial vehicles locally. A Driverless Car Valley in a city that allows experimentation with different autonomous car designs, redesigned roadways and safety laws. A Stem Cell Valley. And so on."

"Wilson's algorithm uses loop-erased random walks to generate a uniform spanning tree - an unbiased sample of all possible spanning trees. Most other maze generation algorithms, such as Prim?s, random traversal and randomized depth-first traversal, do not have this beautiful property."

diigo Rufus: Create Bootable USB Drives the Easy Way
Monday 9th of June 2014
category: geeky
[comments]

"Rufus is an utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.

It can be especially useful for cases where:

you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.)

you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed

you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS

you want to run a low-level utility

Despite its small size, Rufus provides everything you need!"

diigo The Queen Shows Us Who Isn't Boss
Wednesday 4th of June 2014

As she processes through the Princes' Chamber in the House of Lords, there are two statues representing mercy and justice placed there on purpose to focus her mind as she prepares to deliver her speech. The route is dotted with pictures and statues of previous monarchs, as if Westminster were saying: "We have seen your like before."

And here is the really cheeky move: parliament forces Her Majesty to consider her own mortality as she gets dressed for the occasion. For in the Robing Room of the House of Lords, where the Queen puts on her robe and imperial state crown, the authorities have chosen to display a facsimile of the death warrant of her ancestor, Charles I.
