It Started with Synchrophasors and Led to Grid Resiliency

During the investigation into the Aug. 14, 2003, Mid-West/Northeast blackout, it became obvious that we needed higher-resolution time synchronized data for event analyses. Since then, the widespread production use of synchrophasors has been providing deeper insights for both post-event analyses and into the operation and control of the grid. Synchrophasors are precise grid measurements available from monitors called phasor measurement units (PMUs).

However, in the absence of the high volatility that accompanies the Bitcoin market, cryptocurrencies like Ethereum have seen lighter losses and investor faith is still not quite shaken.

Will AI Really Replace Designers By 2022?

It seems like innovation just can’t leave designers alone.
At first, it was the computer revolution; As Adrian Shaughnessy put it, the introduction of Macintosh meant “no more mechanical artwork, no more paste-up, no more typesetters, no more expensive retouchers” for designers.
The second major shock to the field was the explosion of the Internet. No longer designers had the comfort of fixed-size, one-format print publishing. With most businesses looking to add a website to their public image, designers now had to make sure their artwork would look good on all possible screen ratios and sizes.

Blockchain: How I Learned to Stop Hyping and Embrace Reality

For those unfamiliar, blockchain is the underlying technology of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies that enables open, anonymous and secure transactions. As traditional businesses and enterprises were introduced to blockchain, however, their visions for application have ranged far and wide—as has the hyperbole of its promise. Now, before we go any further, I have to get something out of way: Blockchain is not a cure-all. It will not revolutionize every facet of human life.
Now that that’s covered, let’s focus on how the hype came to be and how communicators should really be talking about it.
