Shift Happens - Globalization and the Information Age

By Murray Bourne, 29 Apr 2007

Some interesting - and sobering - implications regarding the New World Order...

A taste of what's in there:

Nintendo invested more than $140 million in research and development in 2002.

The U.S. federal government spent less than half as much on research and innovation in education.

I learned a new number in there - "1.5 exabytes" (1.5 × 1018) - the amount of unique new information that will be created this year.

[Hmmm - how was that estimated, I wonder?]

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
