How surprising. It seems it doesn’t matter how effective your “best practice” teaching methods are if you don’t give teachers the training and support they need to understand and use them.

A big win today, as the Supreme Court says that implementing an un-patentable abstract idea on a computer doesn’t magically render it patentable. This doesn’t kill all software patents, but it definitely weakens the most egregious examples.

Very interesting article about how super-accurate, turbine-level forecasts optimize the output of wind farms.

A Public Service Announcement

You may not realize this, but Semicon West is scheduled well in advance. It’s always about the second week in July, and the exact dates are available at least a year in advance. 

Similarly, print publications put their editorial calendars together months in advance. Had you asked, they could have told you their deadlines for Semicon West coverage six months ago. 

Clearly you didn’t ask, or you wouldn’t be calling to ask if I know someone who can turn an opinion piece around in less than a week, or a technical article in two weeks. 

No, I don’t. Everyone who might be able to is already busy, and you don’t want to pay their rush job premium anyway. 

But I promise I won’t start laughing until after I hang up the phone.

Yes, it is possible to write an article on a subject about which you know absolutely nothing. As this author demonstrates. Grab a couple of quotes from a journal article or press release, throw in a few intelligent sounding buzzwords, and you’re good to go. I guess I’ve been doing it all wrong: I’ve been bashing my brains against sites like arXiv.org all this time.

Those who want to know what contextuality has to do with quantum computing will find the original research here.

Those who want to know more about quantum computing can find my ongoing series on the subject starting here.

Good short interview with Dr. Diana Marculescu, this year’s recipient of the Marie R. Pistilli Women in Electronic Design Automation Achievement Award.

Not sure whether climate change is real? Your insurance company thinks it is, and will charge you accordingly.

More and more San Francisco roofs are sprouting solar panels. The flagpoles at the center-left edge of this picture are on Howard Street, in front of Moscone South.
