Productivity Future Vision

Check out Microsoft’s vision of how computing will evolve to. It’s rather utopian in look and feel.

Here’s To The Crazy One

Here’s to the Crazy Ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do…

Students writing the curriculum
