Introducing FormX, A Must Have For XMod Pro

FormXIntroducing FormX, a revolutionary addition to XMod Pro. I don't usually get to technical in these articles, but for all my DotNetNuke developer friends using XMod Pro, you need to get a copy of FormX from Reflect Media Group. FormX allows you to build XMod templates that permit adding and editing in the list view, or In-line editing, without a page reload. It's amazingly fast and you won't be able to go back to regular forms again, it would be like giving up broad band for dial up.

Get your copy from the DNN Store. And, make sure to checkout the samples under recipes in the documentation.  Easy to use and install.  Excellent tutorials are available.


Underappreciated

Attitude of GratitudeI just wanted to shine some light on the underappreciated, taken for granted and all the people and other things we couldn't live without. As Thanksgiving approaches, one of my favorite holidays, I've been busier than usual and just struck by some of the great people I have run into working behind the scenes that don't receive any acclamation.  In most cases someone else is taking the credit.

I think we all tend to take it for granted all the folks that make our lifestyles possible. I'd thank them all if I could, but there's not enough space on my blog, just know you are appreciated.

I begin and end my day with an attitude of gratitude. Thanks

Flying Vehicles - First US Sky Port in Miami

miamiherald.com I have been talking about flying cars being the wave of the future. What will follow is highrises with parking for personal drones. Looks like Miami will be the first US city with a highrise built for parking personal aircraft at the Paramount World Center. As our population increases along with technology, so will new emerging opportunities for all aspects of this new mode of transportation. The future certainly involves every aspect of flying vehicles, from battery technology, to new condos, supermarket parking and heavy on the construction industry to retool it all. This shift in transportation could be the global industry that boosts the the whole world's economy as every country accommodates it's growing population and employment issues.

Theses are exciting times we are living in. Take a look at the video and article Bob Wiley wrote on the MiamiHerald.com.


Video Games - It's No Game Anymore

BBC.com It's getting harder to tell your kids to put away the video games and get a real job when stories like this are popping up in the news. How video games turn teenagers into millionaires. The point of interest in the article that caught my eye is the statement that these careers weren't available 5 to 10 years ago and that even in this flux that we are now seeing where AI (artificial intelligence) is taking jobs away from people, other career paths are emerging. Let's hope new careers can keep up with the ones being lost to AI. Realistically, it's a lopsided equation in favor of automation. But, learning to be an entrepreneur and riding the trends of a market in flux, you just may be able to make enough to last a lifetime.

Take a look through the BBC's Bright Sparks section and see what what the smart kids are doing.


TED - Insight From Experts

TED.com


If you haven't already discovered TED.com it's a must read website and I would put it at the top of the rotation of the sites you frequent.  TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks.  TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics from science to business to global issues, and in more than 110 languages.

The foundation was established by publishing entrepreneur Chris Anderson and provides a platform for thinkers, visionaries and teachers, so that people around the globe can gain a better understanding of the biggest issues faced by the world creating a better future.  TED's core goal is a belief that there is no greater force for changing the world than a powerful idea.  Be a part of that mission or just learn from the world's best.

I was introduced to TED by a business partner years ago and have benefited from the talks and key insights contributed from many of the unique presenters.  Sites like TED.com are what make the internet great (cat videos aside) TED is the one site where your post graduate education is nourished and you gain from the experience of many great minds.  Without further adieu, check out TED.com.


Drones - The Evolution of Transportation

Flying Cars DronesDrones - The Evolution of Transportation

If you read my blog you know I'm into flying cars and with traffic being what it is, they can't come about soon enough.  Doesn't matter what city you live in, it's not any better anywhere else. Either too many vehicles on the road or a failing infrastructure.  In this article on DailyMail.co.uk mega drones are being tested with multiple passengers, pilot-less control and with the ability to take the helm in an emergency.  The aircraft technology is producing a much needed benefit for air traffic control a well as other industries.

This is an epic shift in society, like going from horse and carriage to automobiles and entrepreneurs need to plan on this trend.  In less than 5 years it will be at consumer price levels and in 10 years, common place.  High rises and condos need to start being built with landing pads as the new garage.  With growing populations, pollution, the need for the use of alternative energies, infrastructure issues, drones and personal aircraft are a great solution to easy all of these problems.  And, aside from natural disasters and terrorism, one of the biggest problems our children will face in their life time that you can be certain of is population growth.

Handling and managing all the demands on resources that population growth will bring are where the opportunities lie.  If you think traffic sucks now, don't do anything about it.  Everyone knows it's gotten worse in the last few years, and that's everywhere.  So, forget the race to Mars, let's race to be the first country ready for the 22nd century.  Embrace it.  This is what will make America great!


Dark Analytics - Mining Data From All Sources

Analytics Domain NamesWhile searching for tech trends and investments opportunities I discovered an article from Deloitte Insights about the technology growth in unstructured data. Unstructured data is essentially chaos, but if you're able to show relations between data elements, it's no longer unstructured and helps build a better picture of what's occurring. Commodities make a good example. Analyzing wheat yields without rain fall or soil erosion factored in, leaves a lot of questions when interpreting results. By adding more variables to the equation, the results are calculated with greater accuracy. Tapping into this vast amount of information that is becoming available from everywhere on the web, dark and deep web included, (data that is not currently included or information sitting idly), analytics experts can gain much greater insight into customer behavior and market movement.

The explosive growth of IoT (Internet of Things) is expected to surpass 44 Zettabytes in 2020. That's 44 trillion gb of information, which is 10 times more than today, and hopefully will be used to make better decisions (before the AI bots make them for us). Read the full article at Deloitte Insights for more information.

TechCrunch - More than Tech News

TechCrunch
If you're read tech news whether it is to keep up or researching new companies, Tech Crunch is a valuable resource. On TC each article about a company has in-depth information on the right side column. It links over to Crunch Base just click on the company title and you'll open up a whole chronological history of the founders, funding they may have received, investors, acquisitions and changes within the organization.

For the full info and additional research you should get the pro subscription that allows drilling down into companies, key players, websites, domain names and more. It has a nice java interface, looks like it was built with DHTMLX, but more than likely a custom cut. Well worth the subscript for professionals.
