2015-10-05T12:39:19.392-07:00Code is up on github (with a fix for the multiple-given-names problem): https://github.com/jillh510/genderize-contacts
2015-10-01T17:36:02.017-07:00Amazing! Thanks, Jill!
2015-10-01T17:32:21.194-07:00Here you go! Replace the "names" array with the result of your LinkedIn export. NB the genderize.io API limits non-dev users to 1000 queries per day. Also the comments field is eating my indentations, which renders Python nonsensical - argh. Hopefully it's obvious from context.
2014-09-11T12:32:07.567-07:00Thanks for sharing...For the sake of children worldwide, I hope and pray that we never re-live another tragedy such as this...
2014-07-11T02:40:02.885-07:00This post is so true, I worked for a company that followed the cash, and would happily add requested features without considering the longer term effect this was to have on the business and the product. I did at one time ask them to consider stopping and fixing everything that did not already work before they added another customer feature, they considered if for a short while as customers withheld payments, but as soon as that situation was resolved, they return to their old ways.
2013-10-03T18:01:45.298-07:00thanks for bringing this Excellent song to the public's eyes. "Been" a favorite of mine, ever it was released on their "to Heaven and Back" Album, back in 1997. The lyrics speak volumes of our current american state of affairs. strange that no on in the media, or anywhere else has picked up on this mood perfect, dead on Musical Masterpiece!! P.S. Been's Son, Robert Levon Been, of the Group; "BRMC" is forming up a Tribute Album, consisting of two live shows, earlier this year. Keep up on the latest @ thecallband.com Kevin J. Keller from firstname.lastname@example.org
2013-09-12T16:26:50.442-07:00Dad, this is incredible - I didn't know that so much had happened. All I knew, until a couple of minutes ago, was that two towers were attacked. How is it that we emphasize the trauma and death of a few loved ones, when there can be millions struck into fear? This really made me think about it.
2013-06-18T11:15:31.686-07:00@cknicker: We moved to a more permanent location, where much of the equipment was built to our spec. As a result, we stopped using my hacked-together setup and have a lot more equipment tailored to our use case. That said, the audio/video ends up going via HDMI into a Blackmagic box, which continues to use Thunderbolt to connect to the iMac. We're now using Wirecast instead of Ustream's producer app (which is really a white labeled version of Wirecast), and we moved to YouTube Live a few months ago for our broadcasts.
2013-06-16T09:53:53.565-07:00I'd very much like to see how this setup has been updated in the past nine months. Any chance of that? thanks
2013-06-05T13:32:05.396-07:00Enjoyed your presentation Rick, very thought provoking!
2013-05-30T02:12:02.696-07:00Thanks! Really enjoyed, am fairly convinced now. Will adopt in future :-)
2013-04-24T03:11:27.943-07:00How did I miss this one? Rick, you have the BEST stories!
2013-03-31T07:09:03.949-07:00Nice job of using ImportHTML! Inspired me to write one myself on using ImportHTML() to make a nice map visualization of facebook usage data.
2013-03-14T20:14:43.572-07:00Nice trip review. Crazy that you had faulty seals on a rig from El Monte two years in a row. What are the odds?
2013-03-14T13:52:52.428-07:00... and are you sure you don't want to put an ad next to this post? :)I can see some high CPC ads :)
2013-03-14T12:04:56.568-07:00Excellent coverage on all points I had wondered about. Thank you.
2013-02-01T19:04:58.056-08:00I assume you've read Marc Prensky's paper, Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants, from 2001, which is I believe where the phrase Digital Native was coined. It is a fascinating paper which has shaped my thinking about education and technology for years.
2013-02-01T09:24:23.046-08:00I'm liking lastpass too. It's a great help for me, especially when I have to access both my personal and business accounts.
2013-01-30T11:16:38.361-08:00I wonder what the concerns of the other parents were. Mine are less about content than about understanding our tools and our relationship to them, but my concerns are valid for adults as well as for children.
2013-01-29T12:27:41.626-08:00Good stuff Rick. With two kids in the exact age range you describe, this is right in our family's wheelhouse. Appreciate the thought provoking sentiments here.
2012-10-27T15:12:25.970-07:00@rklau, I have been wanting to do this for years and will use your article as a starting place to get this project off of the ground. My preference would be for a cloud solution so that I can stream this from anywhere to any device, but the cost for that much online space is prohibitive at this point so local might be the way to go in the interim. Again, thanks for an informative article.
2012-10-27T15:02:49.740-07:00@rklau, thanks for a great article. I just spent 60 hours over the last few weeks getting all of my many years of site, contact, and other information into LastPass. It has been arduous to say the least, but well worth it as well. This is just a first pass and I daresay I probably have another 60 hours to get everything organized exactly like I want, but this is a good first start. LastPass really is a lifesaver and the support staff are just awesome with lots of great support on the forums too. Finally, I just took my latest LastPass Security Challenge and have improved my rankings dramatically. I just cannot say enough good things about LastPass which is my go to app for everything. Again, thanks for a great article.
2012-10-16T10:04:24.030-07:00Thanks for sharing this lovely tribute to Michael. So many of us will miss him.
2012-10-13T03:59:04.596-07:00I've been after doing something like this for years, this post is very encouraging. I've a daughter who is now 15, she had a similar assignment to your son, from her school requesting finding some old photos. Thanks Rick :)
