A Modern-Day David and Goliath – Techno Teen Takes on Computer Giant – and Wins!

By iwano@_84

“Those who say it can’t be done need to get out of the way of those that are doing it.” Unknown

The entrepreneur of today’s world can be compared to the legendary Don Quixote – chasing windmills in search of great fortune.

The entrepreneurial journey I would like to share with you in this article might be a bit of a surprise. I find it remarkable yet I have barely seen it mentioned in the press over the years.

Imagine the following scenario. The year is 1983. You are a college freshman at The University of Texas in Austin, sitting in your dorm room playing around on your computer.

1983. Pre-Internet. Pre-computers-on-every-desk, in-every-room-of-the-house. These were the days of PONG, where very few people sat around playing with personal computers. (If you don’t know what PONG is, ask someone a lot older than you.)

Back to your dorm room. You are … Read More

Bringing Scientific Rigor to Medical Research Using Blockchain Technology

By iwano@_84

Blockchain technology applied to medical research can improve trust in science by creating an unchangeable, time stamped record of the research findings. Blockchain technology, invented by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008, ensures that transactions entered into a ledger cannot be changed with time. As applied to the cryptocurrency bitcoin (BTC), the result is a monetary system that, cannot be manipulated by a centralized government because it creates a permanent and accurate record of all transactions. The strength of the system comes from its use of a distributed database as compared to current monetary systems that require a centralized database such as is used by credit card companies and banks. Applying this same technology to medical research increases trust in the results because just like bitcoin, the transactions (scientific data collected) are permanently archived in an unchangeable, immutable manner.

The exchange of money, just like the conduct of medical research, requires a … Read More

EDTV: What You Should Know Before You Make That Purchase

By iwano@_84

Enhanced Definition Television – also known as EDTV – is

one of the many modern viewing technologies of our time.

Often confused with HDTV capability, this is actually a

compromise between standard TV and HDTV. In fact, the

visual benefits are at least twice that of standard

television, since EDTV technology offers a minimum

resolution of 480p when used on a monitor. As a result,

you’ll find that this type of system is more expensive than

standard television, yet cheaper than HDTV technology.

While there’s been a hew and a cry to purchase the more

expensive – and higher quality – HDTV, there are actually

some advantages to the “second best” EDTV version. First,

there can be as much as a $1200 price difference between

the two, and – in some scenarios – the viewing quality of

EDTV is superior to that of its pricier counterpart. For

instance, there’s only … Read More

What Is The Difference Between A Website And A Web Application?

By iwano@_84

A very interesting albeit old thread on Stack Overflow sparked my curiosity the other day. The original poster of the thread asked: What is the difference between a website and a web-enabled application? This made me think because, to a layman like me, they both seemed the same. But this particular user was looking for definitions that would set them apart. In his opinion, a website points to a specific page and a web-based app is a portal of content and information. However, web apps are also viewed through browsers. It would seem that the line separating websites from web apps is anything but clear.

Another user joked that the difference between a website and a web-based application was a couple of thousand dollars. That one made me chuckle! But finally, we get a more refined answer from Kerrek, a seasoned Stack Overflow user, who made the following distinction:

Most Popular Computer Games Ever

By iwano@_84

While many enjoy playing on a console, there are also many who see the benefits of playing on a gaming desktop. Some are of the opinion that real gaming can only happen on a computer rather than a console. With this type of unit, you are able to change many things affecting the experience of your software, whereas on a console everything is fixed, immovable, and unchangeable. Computer games are intriguing and many are as entertaining as any console program. To give you an idea, here are a few of the most popular computer games ever for a gaming desktop:


The military strategy of StarCraft has a large following of fans. StarCraft has sold over 11 million copies since its release date in 1998. Developed by Blizzard Entertainment this real-time strategy game has an award winning sequel that those with a gaming desktop love to play.

How R2-D2 and Your Computer Are Similar!

By iwano@_84

If you’re a Star Wars fan, did you ever wonder how Luke Skywalker or Anakin Skywalker could communicate to R2D2? Oh sure, in Empire Strikes Back, we saw Luke using a computer monitor to translate R2’s beeps, but that wasn’t always the case. And you know why? Because Luke and Anakin knew their BIOS.

I’ve always turned on my computer and never really wondered about the beeps. Oh, I have when it went out of control, but this article, I think, should be reviewed for all of us who are ignorant of our computer’s BIOS page. BIOS is “Basic Input Output System”. Your computer has three layers. 1.Operating System, 2. Applications or software, 3.) BIOS. BIOS manages all of your hardware on your computer system. It defines all of it’s parameters. So if you would like to turn off a particular device or change the system time or processing speed. … Read More

What is the Capability Maturity Model (‘CMM& – #8482;’)?

By iwano@_84

This discussion will be in the context of software development, although the later version of ‘CMM™’, known as CMMI™ (‘Capability Maturity Model Integration’), and other derivations, widened the application of CMM to the generalised business process world. Basically, it is a formal certification by an external agency of an organisation’s maturity of process framework – specifically the ability to deliver a software project.

Developed and owned by Carnegie Mellon University in the early 1990s, it was based on research into real data collected from companies about their delivery performance.

Consider how software companies grow – there are clear stages in their development as their level of process sophistication grows and they need to maintain and improve quality levels (one hopes) as their organisational complexity increases. For example, ‘Microsoft’ started in a backyard garage in the 1960’s with just two people. This has been typical of many software company startups.
