"Open Source Medical Devices: When code can kill or cure"

I thought this piece from The Economist did a good job of tying two of our readings together from the last lecture. The article explains that as medical devices have grown more capable, they have also grown more complex. With increasing complexity comes an increased potential for something to go wrong. However, the "resources" these devices manage aren't stuffed animals in a natural history museum--they are biometric data where a software bug in a device that accidentally delivers an overdose of chemotherapy can result in the death of a patient.

Dashboard as an Organizing System

A thoughtfully designed dashboard is an exceptional tool for keeping pulse on business performance, but a poorly designed conglomerate of charts and tables can be a distraction. The article “3 reasons to hate BI dashboards” by Joe McKendrick posted on the business technology news website ZDNet criticizes the current state of corporate dashboards for being poorly organized, not actionable, and not much more useful than they were 20 years ago even with technological advances.

Will Data Analytics Win the Presidential Election?

The 2008 presidential election clearly showed how technology (communication via social media) could be used to reach out to large segments of voters, arguably tipping the balance in the Democrat's favor.  While technology is once again being used to reach out to the masses in the current election, analytics technologies are increasingly (and quietly) being used to organize prospective donors/voters.
