Ginni Rometty, chairman, president and CEO of IBM, concluded Wednesday's keynote lineup discussing IBM's role in the next phase of the Internet of Things (IoT): cognitive computing. She said the challenge of IoT today is making sense of all the data we're creating and capturing. "The future of the Internet of Things is cognitive," Rometty said.

THE GIVER- THIS IS A POWERFUL MOVIE ON WORLD PEACE, TODAY AND THE FUTURE. DON'T MISS IT.
The Giver. As I watched the Press Conference in awe for this outstanding movie team, I was fascinated with the author of the book Lois Lowry and the screenwriters Michael Mitnick and Robert B. Weide. How did they weave her book to make you realize how stupid war is; How Deceitful the Elders (the political leaders) could become and how wonderfully innocent and intuitive our youth are?
The result of this books screen adaption, which is drenched in "the light and the darkness of life" (As suggested by Marcello Padilla, Good News Film Producer), is that our youth SAVE US from OURSELVES, THE GROWN UPS. They see the brighter tomorrow and have the strength to make changes..BRAVO…to them, they … [Continue reading...]
Dr. Grandin didn't talk until she was three and a half years old, communicating her frustration instead by screaming, peeping, and humming. In 1950, she was diagnosed with autism and her parents were told she should be institutionalized. She tells her story of "groping her way from the far side of darkness" in her book Emergence: Labeled Autistic, a book which stunned the world because, until its publication, most professionals and parents assumed that an autism diagnosis was virtually a death sentence to achievement or productivity in life.
Dr. Grandin has become a prominent author and speaker on the subject of autism because "I have read enough to know that there are still many parents, and yes, professionals too, who believe that 'once autistic, always autistic.' This dictum has … [Continue reading...]

My name is Shane Bitney Crone. Just over a month ago, I posted a video on YouTube entitled, “It Could Happen to You.” You might have seen it. It was about the accidental death of my life partner, Tom Bridegroom, and more importantly what happened in the aftermath because we weren’t married (even though that was our dream). http://youtu.be/pR9gyloyOjM
Overwhelming response! Over 2.7 million people have watched my video and more than 20,000 people posted comments. And most importantly, the video is making a difference; so many have written to say that they now understand why marriage equality is so fundamentally right and how important it is to legally prepare for the unexpected. I have heard that our story is providing inspiration and hope.
And now we are making a film – … [Continue reading...]
