It’s a strange fact that all the major sport events start their campaign from Australia – First Cricket match of the year, First Grand slam, and First F1 race – just because – December – Jan will be summer in Australia. (Do you know that Australia celebrates Christmas in summer NOT in winter as in the rest of the world!!) So, we decided to watch the Melbourne F1 race match. I was not interested in watching F1 race because of the sheer noise and the monotonous nature (same track for 50 laps? crazy!). This time, I decided to try because of two reasons – Just to understand what’s this fuss all about F1 (Andy was my commentator) and curiosity about Narain Karthikeyan! What I understood from them – is F1 is more than a single-man’s- ability to drive faster. It’s all about teamwork, strategy with unexpected turns and twists etc. I watched hardly for few minutes – listening to some of the historic strategies of Ferrari team and that of Schumacher! I checked out only a couple of times to know the final standings. But, may be there’s lot more to learn from F1 – if you want to learn about strategy, management and application!
As you know, Flickr uses an algorithm to choose the best 500 photos every day and post them on Flickr Explore page. This mesmerizing collection is done auto' magic 'ally by an "interestingness algorithm" which rates each photo how good it is. It does by considering lot of factors such as who views, who comments and who favourites a photo. It is not most views, most favourites or most comments. Here's what Flickr says: "There are lots of things that make a photo 'interesting' (or not) in the Flickr. Where the clickthroughs are coming from; who comments on it and when; who marks it as a favorite; its tags and many more things which are constantly changing. Interestingness changes over time, as more and more fantastic photos and stories are added to Flickr." As I tried to crack down this interestingness puzzle, I figured out certain shortcuts by which you can get to the Flickr Explore page. Get this basics straight . Favourites matter m
