We stood at the railing of the Eagle Eye Shelter atop Mount Falcon, not far from Golden. I’m sure Cola Man was thinking about getting down the mountain in one piece to take the tour of the nearby Coors...


R & D’s Dirty Little Secret

September 30, 2006 8:00 pm | by Robin Y. Smith | Articles | Comments

Achieving an efficient discovery process Robin Y. Smith A majority of today’s research laboratories are awash in technology, productivity systems and knowledge management tools. However, to date, these proffered solutions have not manifested a tangible increase in the rate or quality of R&D discovery. So, what can one do? Is there a method that could change the status quo and dramatically alter competitiveness, innovation and effectiveness


Tweaking Windows Explorer: It’s very easy to enhance usability

September 30, 2006 8:00 pm | by John R. Joyce, Ph.D. | Blogs | Comments

In dealing with users, I’m continually surprised by how many of them are jumping through Microsoft’s hoops to locate files with Windows Explorer. I suppose I shouldn’t be, given all of the detailed manuals and tutorials that come with Windows. When I’m working a site where the IT support personnel ghost all of the PCs with the same image, I’m even more befuddled by the default settings that they use to install Windows Explorer ...


Between the Lines

September 30, 2006 8:00 pm | by Bill Weaver, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

The evolution of revolutionary broadcast technology Bill Weaver, Ph.D. Introductions to the topic of data acquisition eventually include a discussion of sampling. This is not due to outmoded homage to tradition, but simply because we do not have the technology to record an infinite number of items. Our present paradigm of the universe holds that time is a continuous variable and, as such, can be divided into ever smaller increments until the...

Bringing the Next-generation Web to Science

September 30, 2006 8:00 pm | by Matt Shanahan | Articles | Comments

Scientific community pioneers evolution of Web 2.0 Matt Shanahan Experiments and their produced data occur in direct response to the questions and hypotheses that a scientific community puts forth. Data is always connected to people, interpretations and hypotheses; and the interplay between them, though sometimes unpredictable, is a formal process requiring consistency and logic. The connections between data, interpretations and hypotheses are...
