Virtual Worlds, social web and web3.0 are some of the recent cool buzzwords making the rounds recently. Everybody seems to have a different view and definition for each one of them. Intel had been looking into the space for some time and see this as as the next logical evolution of web, where “connectedness” and “immersion” (not just richness) come together to bring us to an era of “Connected Visual Computing”.
I got such a good response from my previous post, that I decided to pose another question to my select and invisible audience.
If you could come up with a wish list, what power related measurements would you like to get from the (computer) platform, as well as from the processor itself?
Now, let's be a little creative. Saying something like, "I'd like to measure the power of an application," doesn't really tell us anything. Break things down a little. Make it a little more concrete.
Just Prior to SIGGRAPH, and my vacation in Arizona, I had the chance to talk w/ Greg Corson from Sony. Greg has been working on COLLADA at Sony since 2005, and has every single game development importing/exporting tool loaded onto his system to test for bugs. Greg was at our Pre-SIGGRAPH COLLADA plugfest. Hear what he has to say on game developer tools and COLLADA. More info at www.COLLADA.org.
When Intel acquired Havok in 2007 I moved to Ireland to help with the transition. While Havok operates independently, there are a couple things we have been working on together that PC developers should be excited about.
A few months ago, I was given the charter to understand how we could identify the most active members in our communities and make them feel more valued. I interviewed a number of our community members to understand why they contributed and what we could do to reward, recognize them. The result is a new title to recognize members for their technical expertise, sharing knowledge and for collaborating to make our communities stronger.
I’m here at the first day of the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco and just returned from the Black Belt Awards Ceremony. No this wasn’t a Chuck Norris film festival, it was a reception to honor and award Intel’s first Black Belt Software Developer.
