  1. From Gladiator Duels To Caesar’s Last Words: The Myths Of Ancient Rome : NPR

    Historian Mary Beard says many of our popular notions about the empire are based on culture — like the play Julius Caesar or the film Gladiator — rather than fact. Her new book is called SPQR.

  2. PBS NewsHour - The long history of women not being taken seriously

    The way women operate today in the public sphere is not too different from how they did in the literature of Homer or the Middle Ages, says Mary Beard, a leading feminist and expert in ancient history. Beard joins Jeffrey Brown for a conversation on women in politics and her latest book, "Women and Power: A Manifesto," an exploration into how women’s voices have been historically silenced.

  3. Mary Beard | S.P.Q.R.: A History of Ancient Rome

    Perhaps Britain’s best-known scholar of antiquity, Mary Beard is a University of Cambridge classicist, a fellow of Newnham College, and a Royal Academy of the Arts professor of ancient literature. Some of her seminal works include Rome in the Late Republic, The Parthenon, and The Fires of Vesuvius, a “marvelous excavation” (The Nation) of life in Pompeii before its volcanic destruction. Beard is also the classics editor of the Times Literary Supplement, where her column “A Don’s Life” regularly appears. A frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books, she has written and presented several BBC historical documentaries. Charting its evolution from insignificant village to sprawling metropolis, S.P.Q.R. offers a comprehensive thousand-year look at history’s greatest empire.

  4. 34C3 - Dude, you broke the Future!

    In this talk, author Charles Stross will give a rambling, discursive, and angry tour of what went wrong with the 21st century, why we didn’t see it coming, where we can expect it to go next, and a few suggestions for what to do about it if we don’t like it.

    http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2018/01/dude-you-broke-the-future.html

    We’re living in yesterday’s future, and it’s nothing like the speculations of our authors and film/TV producers. As a working science fiction novelist, I take a professional interest in how we get predictions about the future wrong, and why, so that I can avoid repeating the same mistakes. Science fiction is written by people embedded within a society with expectations and political assumptions that bias us towards looking at the shiny surface of new technologies rather than asking how human beings will use them, and to taking narratives of progress at face value rather than asking what hidden agenda they serve.

  6. Pulsar (Official Audio)

    Ride unveiled a brand new song today. Not featured on their highly acclaimed recent album, Weather Diaries (see link to listen below), "Pulsar" is built around a central pulsing rhythm and the band’s signature wall of swooping, fuzzed out guitars. It was recorded with Erol Alkan, the legendary DJ, producer and remixer who produced the band’s latest album.

    Stream or download the song here: http://smarturl.it/RidePulsar

    Loz had this to say about their brand new song: “Pulsar re-imagines old organ samples, transmissions from space, effects, heavy beats and pulsing chords. The song title tips its head to the 60’s instrumental ’Telstar’ in name and theme; and the idea was to come up with some kind of ‘space anthem’ about light, existence, travel and return. The band all contributed to make the song what it is, and it all really came together in the studio when we worked with Erol Alkan once again, following on from the success of the ‘Weather Diaries’ sessions.”

    As well as listening to or download Pulsar, you can also buy or listen to the latest Ride album here: http://smarturl.it/WeatherDiariesOutNow

    Don’t miss the band live in the UK & Europe soon:

  7. Is Design Metrically Opposed? - The Design & Content Conference

    Speaker - Jared Spool The world of metrics and analytics has always been at odds with how designers work. Design is a process where we finely tune our gut intuition to create a great user experience. Yet, sometimes, the measures we take indicate a different outcome. Which do we believe? Our gut or what the computers are collecting? In this presentation, Jared will explore the world of measures, metrics, and KPIs. He’ll share the techniques behind Amazon and Netflix’s success. He’ll show how some practices, like the growth hacking approach to increasing Monthly Average Users (MAUs) have hurt the online experience of Instagram and LinkedIn. Plus, you’ll see some alternatives to satisfaction and net promoter score that give insight into the design process and can help designers better tune their gut intuition. SESSION TAKEAWAYS What do easily-collected analytics like bounce rate and time-on-page actually tells us about our users experiences? How do we construct true Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that can predict the future patterns of users? Why advanced techniques, like a money-left-on-the-table analysis and the CE11, show us how much more powerful metrics can be in design?
