Create a Visual Slideshow Resume to Avoid the Slush Pile [Resumes]

Create a Visual Slideshow Resume to Avoid the Slush Pile [Resumes]

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Some employers really do want only a simple page of education and work credentials. Most, though, would prefer to hire someone who can explain their accomplishments with greater depth. Create a slideshow-style “visual resume” to give your application a fighting chance.

KDE 4.5 Window tiling

KDE 4.5 Window tiling

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); You’ve probably seen the advertisements for Windows 7 and the tiling windows feature. Believe it or not the very first tiling window manager was Siemens’s RTL (created in 1988). After that came a UNIX version called tAP (The Andrew Project) for the X Windowing System. Fast-forward to now and Microsoft claims to have innovated a new feature. Soon after that KDE refines the same feature and ads it into 4.4. Of course...

The web attack that leads hackers straight to your home

The web attack that leads hackers straight to your home

Is it possible, is there such a thing as an attack that can tell a hacker where you live?  The BBC has revealed that a specially booby-trapped website can tell a hacker where you are to only a few metres. The attack was dreamt up by security expert Sam Kamkar who demonstrated at the Black Hat hackers conference a website exploiting common shortcomings in a router to reveal it’s real-world location. He tricked the router into believing the request for it’s ID information...

(Updated) How to Transfer Google Voice to Your Google Apps Account

(Updated) How to Transfer Google Voice to Your Google Apps Account

Update: Google Voice product manager Craig Walker confirms that the Apps transfer is NOT supported right now, and that it was only done for a small group of testers. Sorry, all. The good news? He says there will be a way to transfer your Voice account to Google Apps once the new GApps features that are being tested right now launch. In the meantime, I’m removing the link to the request form from this post. Update: After I published this post, Google added very strong language...

This Week in Google, Episode 50

This Week in Google, Episode 50

Jeff and Leo and I chatted about Droid X, Prince, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and the iPhone 4 in our latest episode of TWiG. Also, listeners are helping send an Android phone into space! My tip this week: Chrome to Phone, which pushes your open Chrome tabs to your phone with the click of a button, for browsing on the go.

Froyo Over-The-Air Updates Hit Nexus Ones This Week

Froyo Over-The-Air Updates Hit Nexus Ones This Week

If you’ve got a Nexus One and have been patiently waiting for the OTA update to Android 2.2, this week’s your week. Google says you’ll get a notification by the end of the week for the update to 2.2. My sources tell me you’ll get it even if you manually installed Froyo, as the official OTA version is a different build number. Here’s the good stuff you get in Froyo; no word yet on other handsets.

Google Voice Open in the U.S.

Google Voice Open in the U.S.

Previously invitation-only Google Voice just opened to everyone in the U.S., offering free text messaging, multi-phone management, and voicemail features which, after more than a year of exclusive use, I couldn’t live without. The three things I do on my mobile phone most–text, call, and check email–are powered entirely by Google at this point with Voice, Gmail, and Android. The Gmail/GVoice experience on Android is the main thing that leaves me cold when I look at an...

How to Set Up OpenID on Your Own Domain

How to Set Up OpenID on Your Own Domain

For some reason I was under the mistaken impression that setting up an OpenID on my own domain, ginatrapani.org, would be a big hassle: that I’d have to host my own OpenID server software and that it would take all sorts of installation and maintenance BS to do so. I feel strongly about owning my identity online, mapping it to my nameplate domain, and actively choosing an authorizing party instead of just accepting the sign-in service du jour like Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, or Google....

iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO

iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO

Nicole Lee does the hard work so I don’t have to: feature by feature comparison of the iPhone 4 and the 4G HTC EVO. As far as I’m concerned, the EVO’s the better deal: bigger screen, more customizable OS, Google Maps navigation, Google Voice native app, tethering/portable hotspot, kickstand, Sprint 4G network support, expandable MicroSD up to 32GB, and removable battery. No-brainer. Continua a leggere – Original Link: iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO Technorati Tags:...

How Networks Transform Culture

How Networks Transform Culture

In the past three months Anil and I have been to events in six different cities talking about Expert Labs and how the White House used ThinkTank to compile feedback on the Grand Challenges initiative. At Fast Company’s Innovation Uncensored event in New York City last month, Anil absolutely killed it in a 12 minute presentation that hits the nail right on the head. Press play to check it out.

Latest Videos: Passwords, Voicemail, Syncing, and More

Latest Videos: Passwords, Voicemail, Syncing, and More

The best part about my Work Smart video series at Fast Company is that I get to cover my favorite, classic digital productivity problems with the latest and greatest solutions I know in a whole new medium. In the past five installments I addressed some old and new issues any tech savvy digital worker encounters: keeping track of passwords, wasting time leaving and listening to voicemail, being a productive freelancer (or just work-at-homer), syncing files across all your computers, and,...

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

Published my first opinion piece on CNN.com today, in which I argue it’s a great thing that the Library of Congress is archiving billions of public tweets. Despite some parentheses trouble and unclickable URLs in the story (I’ve alerted my editor), I’m proud of how the piece came out, even though CNN.com commenters seem to think tweets are a waste of storage space. Thanks to @matty_g, @Jason_Pollock, @Swiftsfan, and @itwalkabout for the example tweets in the story. Who...

Tell the White House What Our Next Tech Challenge Should Be

Tell the White House What Our Next Tech Challenge Should Be

This week the White House will put out a call to techies and scientists across the internet, asking a simple question: What should the United States’ next greatest technological and scientific achievement be? Get your answers ready, geeks. When you reply to the White House’s prompt–on Twitter, Facebook, or via email–your voice will be heard and your ideas will be counted. I know, because I helped build the software that will capture your responses and deliver them...

TWiG: The iPad Episode

TWiG: The iPad Episode

This week’s episode of This Week in Google included my friend Matt Haughey. Because we recorded on iPad launch day, the conversation inevitably centered around the new device, which I didn’t buy. A live viewer told me I looked a little bored at times–and I’ll admit, since I didn’t have one of the toys to play with myself, I kind of was. Still, it was a fun discussion full of iPad love, even though Jeff Jarvis had a little morning-after regret. Continua a...

Encouraging Diversity in Open Source

Encouraging Diversity in Open Source

My current boss and long-time friend Anil Dash explains how he and I–a guy who looks like a terrorist and a gay-married woman–prioritize diversity in the community of developers working on ThinkTank. The entire interview is worth reading if you’re wondering what the heck we’re working on, but here’s a tidbit: Q: How do you go about ensuring diversity in an open development project? If all comers are welcome… The same way any diversity effort happens,...

I’m Not Buying an iPad This Weekend

I’m Not Buying an iPad This Weekend

Even though I’m desperately curious how one looks and feels and works, I’m not buying an iPad–just yet, anyway. I’ll head down to the Apple store and fondle one on Saturday, just before TWiG, so that I can talk about it on-air. But I’m already suffering from gadget overload, with a netbook and an iPod touch and the Nexus One and a Kindle, so bringing another gadget into the house just doesn’t makes sense. I will buy a tablet in the next year or so–after...

Latest Videos: Productive Procrastination and Eating Your Frog

Latest Videos: Productive Procrastination and Eating Your Frog

My two latest videos over at Fast Company deal with how to get things done even when your lizard brain is completely against you. First, a bit on how to procrastinate productively; second, how to get your most important work done first thing, before you start procrastinating. The topics are very much related. Once you’ve let yourself dread something long enough, you get stuck in a cycle of procrastination that makes you feel like crap. But my big secret is this: some of my best...

TWiG Live from SXSW

TWiG Live from SXSW

Had a blast recording the latest episode of This Week in Google in person with Jeff Jarvis and Leo Laporte in Austin at SXSW this past Saturday. We had a live audience in-studio of friends and supporters there too, with guest appearances by Matt Haughey, Adam Pash, and Jake Jarvis rotating in on the fourth mic. It was so cool to see what happens beyond my Skype headset every Saturday and finally get to give Leo a big hug in person. Speaking of Leo at SXSW, if you haven’t seen him...
