Editor's Notes

  • The context for this entire discussion is the accelerating enterprise adoption of the cloud. 2009 saw dramatic growth from the leaders in cloud computing– 2M subscribers to salesforce, 2M companies on Google, and over 25M servers spun up on Amazon.

    But where is all this going? Analysts say that cloud computing is the #1 strategic priorty for CIOs and that every enterprise should be roadmapping their adoption of the cloud.
  • GoldCorp – 100M to 9B in market cap
    $575K in prize money
    110 sites identified, 80% produced gold (80M oz of gold were found)
  • Optimize for output and creativity – hard to structure challenges. Same with video requirements. Stiffle creativity.
    Identify blueprint
    Inputs/Outputs
    Sample Audience ( description & how is it used)
  • Devs are weird. Want to be collaborative and competive as the same tiem. I’ll tell you how to solve this code but I’ll do it better. So you have to be as responsive on the BB. You’ll also see devs helping out or talking some trash.

    Scorecards and announcements with blog posts. Developers post their videos or we do it for sometime we do it for them.
  • The test presents the participant with the following task: how to fix a lit candle on a wall (a cork board) in a way so the candle wax won't drip onto the table below.[3] To do so, one may only use the following along with the candle:

    a book of matches
    a box of thumbtacks

    The solution is to empty the box of thumbtacks, put the candle into the box, use the thumbtacks to nail the box (with the candle in it) to the wall, and light the candle with the match.[3] The concept of functional fixedness predicts that the participant will only see the box as a device to hold the thumbtacks and not immediately perceive it as a separate and functional component available to be used in solving the task.
