Well I'm always writing about what's trending.
With Zero Day's out, and Snowden coming out in September, I thought I'd write about hair of course, algorithms, and millennial's ! Yep, I can never stick to one thing.
Think about Euclid, the great mathematician of his time. Thousands of years ago he wrote the first recorded Algorithm solving the common divisor problem.
Simple and elegant.
A set of instructions that works every time!
Then we had Bubble Sort in 1963 and then Merge Sort. (Also Simple and Elegant)
The amazing thing about algorithms is that they are not just limited to the world of technology.
They are ever present in everything we do, all day long!
THEN…. da, da, da da, I always wish there was a note Icon, in 1998 two Stanford PHD students in a garage in Palo Alto California developed Page Rank. We all know what happened with that!
Over Mother's Day weekend I spent the day with some dear friends that I've known for close to 3 decades.
The one and only grand daughter (22) was so exhausted from studying and trying to learn code in her fourth year at a community college. (I'll call her Dana)
Speaking to me like I have no idea what she is talking about. (I'm the same age as her mom) Her parents are divorced and dad is an engineer.
I just looked at her and smiled. I thought about how she wasn't born yet when I opened my first business AND started a dot com company :*) (I was just a few years older than she is now!)
I thought to myself, she was in elementary school when I was instructing and composing code with my IT people.
I have to say, this was a new experience to me.
Most Millennials that I have met, and clients, have not been quite so sheltered in their thinking.
Maria, pictured, is the same age as Dana, going to college, working full time, and understands that modern technology, if you are employed, plays a huge role in your every day life.
And all of my twenty something clients are coming from that way of thinking as well. In their defense they are gainfully employed unlike Dana.
I always tell my clients that chemical technology is moving extremely fast. And what I mean by that is that chemistry/science is moving at light speed when it comes to hair.
Just recently a product was developed, to address the fact that as we age our hair follicles get smaller in diameter. I read it in an article written by physicians.
Not only does this product increase the diameter of the hair follicle over time, but it increases volume by a minimum of 9% immediately. I can't keep in on the shelves!
That is just one example of sooooo many I could give.
And lets face it, people, by having a public blog, I have increased the hits on my website by 700 per month.
So even though in the next few months Stuxnet, Nitro Zeus, PLC's and Unit 8200 will be trending…
Lets Talk Hair!,
What's trending with Millennials is jewel and pastel tones.
I love Maria's hair because of it's placement of color.
Sometimes an entire head of lime green makes me want to reach for a Xanax.
But strategically placed it can be artful, complimentary and striking.
Remember, everyday can be a beautiful one! (And a technologically exiting one too!)
