Google IO Prediction API & Caption API 
Playing catch up watching a few Google IO 2011sessions from May....

Want to leverage Google's machine learning engine(s)? Check out the presentation Smart App Design that shows how to upload a data set, create a model then send transactional data to be modeled live. Simple REST api allows for live updating of model through positive reinforcement calls. They have a few test/sample models: Sentiment(positive, neg) of text, Language detect, Tag association. You can build your own and they announced their plans to allow 3rd parties to make their models avail for rev share payment, but I don't see any yet? Heads up R lovers, API libraries are avail along with many common programming languages.

If you are a live international video tech nut as I am, you will find the IO talk on Caption API & Speech Recognition interesting. Google partnered up with Psycle & StreamText to enable their live captioning of Google/IO. Google does have machine transcribing of video speech to text but still used live human transcribers. Google is pushing for adoption of standard caption format WebVTT. Non-Google but same niche, I have used and follow SpeakerText, I love their crowd sourced transcribing business model $2 per video minute and happy to see they have now opened up free caption delivery with their plugin. Hats off to Google an their accessibility screen reader ChromeVox.

Black Diamond Compactor Poles 

DB Compactor Poles are now on the market! I was a tester for the early prototypes last year and love them. Light, tough, easy to fold down. If you are a split boarder or anyone that needs to pack poles for the decent, the folded size is perfect. I cranked on these especially hard poling out of some flat bottom canyon exits with no issues.
SNOW tonight!
