Google I/O 2011
Google I/O 2011: Ignite
The ignite at Google IO 2011. Hosted by Brady Forrest. Here are the speakers and talks:
John Adams (Twitter) — Speak into the Mic: A History Lesson
The microphone has been around for nearly 200 years, yet people still have problems using it. Where did microphones come from, how can you use them to sound great, and where can they take you?
Annalee Newitz (io9) — Social Media Is Science Fiction
In science fiction, social media spawns hive minds, thought control, privacy mutation, and secret revolutions. Do you want to live in the future you might be building with your platforms and apps today?
Kyle Machulis (Nonpolynomial Labs) — This is your brain. This is your brain on bugs.
What do our biometrics say about our code quality, and vice versa? Can health hardware be a debugger for more than just health?
Joseph Pred (Burning Man) — Risk Management at Burning Man or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Risk.
Fun has become sanitized by amusement parks, but a sense of risk is a key part of vivid experiences. Risk management, if done right, can mitigate danger while preserving the essential participant experience.
Pamela Fox — No, Really, I'm Shy
People are often surprised to find out that I am really, really shy. I figured that out when I was a kid and have spent my life coming up with workarounds for my shyness, and now I want to share those hacks with all of you.
Matt Cutts (Google) — Try Something New For Thirty Days
What happens when you try a bunch of 30-day experiments? Many succeed, and even the failures are over in 30 days.
Monica Rogati (LinkedIn) — Tiger Moms, Ninjas, and Chips, Oh My! Uncovering the Story in the Data
100 million LinkedIn profiles. Career histories going back to the '70s. The data tells stories — how do we hear them through all the noise?
Patrick Davison (Know Your Meme) — Avril Lavigne; or How Global Warming Taught Me Why YouTube's Important
The study of global climate change has created a number of techniques for making sense of the incredible amount of data available. To what degree can the same methods of statistical analysis be used to make sense of another data dump: every comment ever left on Avril Lavigne's YouTube videos?
Kevin Marks (Salesforce) — Ownership is the Enemy of Control
The history of technology is strewn with examples of attempts to make software behave like property. Some are temporarily successful, but all are ultimately fragile.
