Data visualizations
Good advice here re modernizing data visualizations in your presentations. Any advice you'd like to share with your peers, readers?

Do data for good
Beth, 

What a great idea!

I would also add to not limit yourself to, for instance, volenteer to develop a spreedsheet program for a school just because you don't have a child.

Any school would happily welcome any kind of help. :)

No more Powerpoint
It's refreshing to think that my kids will never have to sit through some clip-art filled powerpoint presentation, at work or school.

Re: No more Powerpoint
@Whoopty we wish! My kids are still taught Powerpoint in school. I think once the teachers get something, they want to be able to use it for years, no matter that the rest of the world is moving on.

Teach principles, not programs
Have to agree and lament the teaching of particular, proprietary applications (like the Microsoft Office suite) rather than computing principles in schools. My son has been trained on Word and PowerPoint at school, but they haven't taught him the principles of programming, repeatable applications or the use of data. He has learned more on his own with Lego Mindstorms, for example. Teachers: please be more creative and teach enduring computing concepts, not proprietary programs that will eventually go away.


The Business of Going Digital
The Business of Going Digital
Digital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
