Former Googler Julie Clow visited Google on May 16, 2012 to talk about her book The Work Revolution: Freedom and Excellence for All.
About the book:
We live in a new age of global companies, hyper-access to information, and accessibility to tools that enable us to bring any idea life. Strangely, our workplaces are lagging behind the promise of this open and collaborative world. Most organizations are rule-based, top-down, dreary environments optimized for conformity and little else. The Work Re

Pteranodon Fishing (Interactive Game)
In this "Dinosaur Train" interactive game, Buddy uses his sharp eyes to spot fish from above, and Tiny scoops them up with her beak. This game demonstrates the anatomy of Pteranodon fishing and the value of teamwork. After the time has ran out, you count the different sizes of fish caught.
Reroofing Your Uncle's House (Interactive)
In this interactive activity adapted from the Wisconsin Online Resource Center, use mathematics and measuring skills to solve a construction problem. Play a game using tools (including a tape measure, notepad, and calculator) to determine how many shingles are needed to reroof a house. Learn about the importance of proper planning and how miscalculating the amount of materials needed can add to the cost and time spent on a project.
The iPhone 5
This five minute video is about Apples iPhone 5 and what may happen in the future. The video can be used for career research and to have students think about the future of these devises and their impact on society.
Rocky Coasts (Interactive)
Tides, currents, shelf slope, and geologic history all influence how coastline features are broken down or built up. However, more than any other factors, wave energy and coastal rock type influence the erosional processes that shape rocky coastlines. In this interactive resource adapted from the National Park Service, learn about sea stacks, fjords, and other features that characterize rocky coasts in some of America's national parks.
Is it Time to Rethink Your Manufacturing Strategy?
A growing number of US executives are repatriating their manufacturing capabilities—moving some production operations back from overseas. One such company is Ford, which, in August 2010, announced plans to bring back about 2,200 parts-production jobs. Another example is Caterpillar, which is investing $120 million in a new Victoria, TX, plant to make excavator machines—devices formerly made at a Caterpillar plant in Japan. Washington policy makers strongly support these moves: ins
Panel Discussion: "Innovation in Manufacturing"
In what areas will innovation be most important in order for U. S. manufacturing to be competitive—and how closely linked must industry and research and academic centers be in order for innovation in manufacturing to thrive? What are the differing impacts of product vs. process innovation, and which specific innovations might have the greatest impact on manufacturing in the years to come? How important is the relationship between innovation and manufacturing. This panel’s discussi
AlgTop18: Classification of combinatorial surfaces II
In this lecture we present the traditional proof of the most important theorem in Algebraic Topology: the classification of (two-dimensional) surfaces using a reduction to a normal or standard form. The main idea is to carefully cut and paste the polygons forming the surface in a particular way, creating either a sphere, or a number of crosscaps or handles.
This is the 18th lecture of this beginner's course in Algebraic Topology, given by N J Wildberger of the School of Mathematics and Statisti
L’adolescente e l’uso di sostanze psicoattive
Si analizza il rapporto fra adolescenza e uso di sostanze psicotrope (legali e illegali). Lo studio degli atteggiamenti dei giovani nei confronti dell’uso e dell’abuso di tali sostanze assume un’importanza funzionale nella comprensione dei processi di costruzione e sviluppo dell’identità e di tutti quegli elementi psicologici che vanno a comporre credenze, valori, sentimenti, cognizioni e sistemi di significato dei comportamenti d’abuso.,It analyzes the relationship between adolescenc
Visual Studio Toolbox: Debugger Canvas | Visual Studio Toolbox
In this episode, Kael Rowan of Microsoft Research joins us and shows the Debugger Canvas. Debugger Canvas is a power tool for Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate that pulls together the code you're exploring onto a single pan-and-zoom display. As you hit breakpoints or step into code, Debugger Canvas shows the methods that you're debugging, including call lines and local variables, to help you see the bigger picture as well as the details.
