Rumors swept through the mathematics community that a great advance had been made by a researcher no one seemed to know — someone whose talents had been so overlooked after he earned his doctorate in 1992 that he had found it difficult to get an academic job, working for several years as an accountant and even in a Subway sandwich shop.
“Basically, no one knows him,” said Andrew Granville, a number theorist at the Université de Montréal. “Now, suddenly, he has proved one of the great results in the history of number theory.”

Tell me what Apple has done that’s illegal
Senator Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican
Apple capitalises on a difference between US and Irish rules regarding tax residency. In Ireland, a company must be managed and controlled in the country to be a tax resident. Under US law, a company is a tax resident of the country in which it was established. Therefore, the Apple companies aren’t tax residents of Ireland nor of the US, since they weren’t incorporated in the US

HOW DO I LAND?! Here’s a comp of the actual letters from the Cloud Project! The actual day had a very high winds, and the letters appeared and disappeared quite quickly.

I managed over 12,000 people at Groupon, most under the age of 25. One thing that surprised me was that many would arrive at orientation with minimal understanding of basic business wisdom. ”Haven’t you read any business books? Good to Great? Winning? The One Minute Manager?” I’d ask. ”Business books? Not really our thing,” was the typical response. I came to realize that there was a real need to present business wisdom in a format that is more accessible to the younger generation.
I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS.(via rickwebb)

I'm a .NET Software Engineer currently working for Electronics for Imaging, Inc., New Zealand. I enjoy elegant code, as well as hacking away at HTML5, CSS3, JS et al. and am passionate about social media and mobile technologies.
In my down-time I have been known to allow myself to be dragged away from a computer in order to read a book, or even talk to real people!
Away from computers, I love to cook for friends (and my lovely wife, Naomi) and spend long afternoons dragging into the evening sharing a good wine or two.
