Navarr Barnier, Magento Developer:

Google translated Russia to “Mordor” in “automated” error

Google Translate is a very neat tool. It uses machine learning algorithms to compare how people are talking about the same thing in different languages and uses that to power it’s translation engine.

Unfortunately, like in this case – it sometimes goes a little “wrong”


Dave Balser, JD Edwards Delivery Director:

This week, the New York Public Library posted 180,000 photos from their collection online. The photos are free from copyright and can be used by anyone. This adds to their collection of maps and other archive images they’ve posted. 


John Kormanec, Solutions Architect:

Harnessing the Energy of Small Bending Motions

“For many applications such as biomedical, mechanical, or environmental monitoring devices, harnessing the energy of small motions could provide a small but virtually unlimited power supply.”


Gian Genovesi, Magento Delivery Director:

Microsoft and Samsung showed some pretty cool glimpses into an Internet of Things powered home of the future.


Michelle Kowalski, Designer:

"There are people that decant things and people that don’t."
I'm an amateur decanter looking to go pro.
