Thanks to Alessandro Gubitosi, who just send me this poster with PICOL icons, which promotes the Ubuntu in Italy and can be used by the rest of the world. It´s great PICOL can help the great and open Ubuntu project with it´s own openness. It would be great to have PICOL as UI icons in Ubuntu

That´s not all Alessandro did with and especially for PICOL. He also mentioned as an aside that he did PICOL generator. THAT´S AWESOME — I LOVE THE INTERNET. He built it overnight! That´s version 1.1beta and he wants to push it forward
Just finished a new clip with PICOL icons for Navia Systems, a company which was founded in 2007 by four MIT doctoral students. The company’s goal is to help people make more rational, data-driven decisions by designing and building machines that make good judgements in the presence of uncertainty.
The clip exaplains the concept of probabilistic computing, also known as Bayesian inference. Enjoy watching it.
For more information you can visit the website of Navia Systems.
Here you can watch the clip with some additional information on my portfolio.
»The purpose of this deck was to delve into advertising on the third screen (mobile) in this new fifth dimension—where data and information exists in a cloud all around you. This fifth dimension isn’t quite tangible without a device, but if you have an iPhone you can look at a restaurant through your phone and see every review that people left on Yelp or all the tweets tagged with that location.« Aaron Richard
For all the german readers of the PICOL Blog. On October 20th there will be a feature by the director Mike Schaefer in the show “Quarks & Co” on the TV channel WDR.
The episode is called “Die Macht des Internets”. The feature of Mike Schaefer uses parts of the animation “History of the Internet” and for this episode we developed two more takes, which show the Internet of today. In this feature Mike made an very interesting interview with Lawrence Roberts, who was chief scientist at the ARPA.
For more information visit the website of “Quarks & Co“.
Don´t miss the show.
