For chefs and foodies, big data could be the new secret ingredient | ZDNet

"Tech giants like IBM followed by a handful of budding startups are tapping into machine learning to rethink the delivery of food from the growers to chefs to the delivery professionals themselves."

    • Ideally, your child will receive a W-2 for work performed; otherwise, it is a good idea to keep excellent records from jobs that don’t provide a W-2: babysitting, yard work, mothers’ helpers, entrepreneurial endeavors, etc. Your records should include:

       
      • Type of work
      •  
      • When the work was done
      •  
      • For whom the work was done
      •  
      • How much your child was paid
  • For example, if your daughter earns $3,000 at a summer job, you can let her spend her money as she wishes and you make the $3,000 IRA contribution with your own money. You might also offer to contribute a percentage of what your child earns, such as 50% (your child earns $3,000 and you contribute $1,500). Whatever approach you decide to take, the IRS doesn’t care who makes the contribution as long as it does not exceed your child’s earned income for the year.

  • A market network often starts by enhancing a network of professionals that exists offline. Many of them have been transacting with each other for years using fax, checks, overnight packages and phone calls.

     

    By moving these connections and transactions into software, a market network makes it significantly easier for professionals to operate their businesses and clients to get better service.

  • People matter. With complex services, each client is unique, and the professional they get matters. Would you hand over your wedding to just anyone? Or your home remodel? The people on both sides of those equations are not interchangeable like they are with Lyft or Uber. Each person brings unique opinions, expertise and relationships to the transaction.
  • A market network is designed to acknowledge that as a core tenet — and provide a solution

  • So what can you do to build a company full of loyalists instead of a company full of mercenaries? First you must lead. If you think you are a good leader, get better. If you think you are a great leader, you can get better. Get coaching and focus on becoming the best leader you can be.

     

    Second, build a mission driven company. Make sure you are doing something that matters. If all you are doing is trying to make money for yourself, then all your employees will try to do is make money for themselves.

     

    Third, invest in values and culture. Matt’s post is a good starting place for some tips on how to do that.  Build a welcoming home and put comfortable furniture in it. I mean that metaphorically of course. But the office does matter too.

     

    Finally, think about being somewhere other than the Bay Area or NYC. Yes, they are great places to start companies, find talent, and get investment. But they are also places where others start companies, get investment, and find your talent. It’s a ratrace, a treadmill, and it’s grueling. If you can avoid it, you owe it to yourself to try.

"It’s now been over three decades since cyberpunk first exploded, and in that time we’ve seen gorgeous movies, read fascinating books, and seen dozens of offshoots like steampunk (and my new favorite, deco punk) develop. Here are the 21 cyberpunk books you absolutely must read."

The Web is getting its bytecode: WebAssembly | Ars Technica

"In spite of these improvements, the question of "why JavaScript?" remains. This is not without reason. The use of JavaScript incurs certain overheads: browsers have to read and interpret a text-based language that was designed for human authors, not for machines. The design of JavaScript itself has features that are suboptimal from a performance perspective; the way a single JavaScript variable may at different times represent a number, a string, or a fragment of HTML means that a JIT compiler may not be able to optimize as aggressively as it would like. The ability to modify the behavior of even built-in objects such as arrays can be similarly problematic."

  • People with migraine, particularly frequent or chronic migraine, often worry that these difficulties thinking represent permanent changes in the brain. The research shows that cognitive dysfunction is reversible and does not last after all the stages of the migraine are over.
