Triumph of the Nerds

...REACTION PAPER Prepared to: MS. AILEEN L. RILLON The Triumph of the Nerds is a documentary chronicles of the rise of the personal computer/home computer beginning in the 1970s with the Altair 8800, Apple I and Apple II and VisiCalc. It highlighted the progress and competitiveness of the market between companies like Microsoft, Apple, IBM, Xerox, and Lotus, just to name a few. It continues through the IBM PC and Apple Macintosh revolution through the 1980s and the mid 1990s, ending at the beginning of the Dot-com boom with the release of Windows 95. The Triumph of the Nerds is one of the most important stories in human culture. It is the great story in the history that has affected the daily living of the individuals today…and obviously, for the next years, centuries, and millennium to come. With the human, he has transformed the existence of the people at the speed of an avalanche. It created another new dimension to discover and to explore. It leads our lives in another portal of world. Consider current trends such as today’s youth do not like to talk on the telephone. They should rather communicate via electronic telegrams tapped out with their thumbs. That is very strange. What if those “nerds” did not come up with the idea of creating computer? What would possibly happen to us? In a world characterized by a chaotic lifestyle of the “instant”, it is not uncommon to be caught in the whirlwind of hi-tech era. One very obvious application of computers in our lives is...

Scholastic Method

... things unseen” in his first objection to demonstrate that knowledge of God’s existence requires some form of faith. In Article 2 Thomas Aquinas asks whether it can be demonstrated that God exists. Now this is dipping a bit into the Scientific Method that relies on actual tangible evidence to prove a point. Still, the same pattern emerges from the first article. Thomas gives examples and theories on his argument, provides his own counter-examples, then proceeds to offer his own rebuttal to himself. Yet still that the big question is, does this article resemble more the Scientific Method than it does the Scholastic Method? To answer this, one must discover that the only Scientific Method-like trait about this article is the fact of asking for tangible evidence that God exists. Thomas Aquinas still uses other sources, and provides logical and understandable evidence that God’s existence can be demonstrated. This is done by the means of explaining the unaffected causer, which in this case is God. Article 3 plainly states the big question on everyone’s mind. Whether God exists? In this article Thomas writes about the Five Proofs. These five proofs are highly influenced by the Scholastic Method. They would be what is called a “summae” which is, in Scholasticism, the summed up version of the entire debate at hand. So in these Five Proofs, Thomas makes a great summary of his entire argument. In these proofs you have the unmoved mover, the unaffected causer, the unmade maker,......

Bill Gates and Paul Allen are people whose work together to make today’s life easier as what Microsoft known. After the mild success of the Microsoft other people wanted to make computers as well.

It always says that: Starting point is very useful in terms of invention because it is a basis of improvement because after the Microsoft and Apple was known; the IBM was launch. IBM was started by Tom Watson and Tom Watson Jr. and based on the documentary that I’ve seen, it was documented the lifestyle of being an employee of IBM, the way they go to office and other specific things concerning being an employee of the company. It was also stated that the Relationship between IBM and Microsoft was an interesting one. It lasted 10 years and made both companies a lot of money. IBM became the biggest PC manufacturer because of it but because of some mistakes also cost them a lot of money in the long run. Therefore, I conclude that The Triumph of the Nerds is one of the most important stories in human culture. It is the great story in the history that has affected the daily living......

Reflection on a Teacher's Triumph

...A Teacher’s Triumph ‘I dreamt of stars; I got a planet’ Write a personal reflection and what can you say of Dr. Biyo’s passion of teaching. Indeed, learning is a continuous process. That for every inch of time that we spend in this world, we do what we love to do and along the way of surviving each passing day, we learn something new, the world evolves so does ourselves. I can relate that thought to what Dr. Biyo had said. She always considers herself to improve on her field. She seeks for knowledge of something on which she doesn’t know yet, she strongly believe that by learning more, she would be able to share everything with the people around her. A point which showed that she didn’t aimed for personal achievements, but instead she was thinking of the true recipients of her determination, these are the people especially the children that will partake from her knowledge. One doesn’t have to possess everything that he needs in order to continue to make a difference, but by having the right attitude, the will to move forward, the faith are enough. Materialistic things can make one to move fast or work conveniently, but we can make use of everything around us even to the cheapest level, and still have an excellent outcome. Dr. Biyo never failed to innovate to make learning as interesting as possible, with or without the materials or facilities that she had in mind, and she never forgot the role of the environment in her teaching. Learning outside, not only to what...

Scholastic Triumphs at Ateneo

... Who Is The Real Artist? Which of the two would you say is the real artist? I must say that Vik Muniz and Thierry Guetta are both artist on their own way. But the question is who the “Real Artist” is? Well, it very hard to decide because there are no genuine qualifications, standards, or criteria for being real artists. It is just base on what they feel, their emotions, or what they want to express. As the famous quote says “There are no rules for being an artist. Only sins. And the cardinal sin is dullness.” Yes, so everyone can really be an artist. And sometimes, you can be an artist without even knowing or being aware that you are. As long as you do what you love and loving what you do, expect a masterpiece. But for the purposes of this activity I will just settle for this. Vik Muniz is the artist that goes beyond to the art that is just being appreciated. But instead, his art actually inspired and changed the lives of the people living in Gramacho. It is beyond being an artist. But he is actually an instrument used by God to make difference to the perspectives in life of those garbage collectors. Because of him, those people began to be very proud to say to the world that Gramacho is their life, garbage is their life and they are not ashamed of it. Muniz’s portraits prove also that you don’t need expensive materials to create masterpieces, you just need the heart to do that. And surely the world can see it. That is also why I never doubted why the Film wasteland...

Triumph of the Avant-Garde

... example of this is Mahana no atua (Day of the God). Gauguin had taken a trip to Tahiti. When setting out on his trip, he envisioned a country rich with culture and tradition. He found instead a country that was losing its culture. Upon his return to Paris, he created Mahana no atua from memory. He divided the painting into three horizontal sections. In the top section (the least abstract of the three), Gauguin depicts the statue of a god with Tahitians on the beach behind it. In the middle section, three humans are centered directly under the statue of the god. The female in the center is seated in a provocative pose, while the two on the sides are lying in a fetal position. These figures likely symbolize the cycle of birth, life, and death. The lower section of the painting is the most abstract of the three sections. In it, Gauguin used a pattern of vibrantly colored shapes to depict a pool of water. Because there is a beach, and because the middle character in the painting has her feet in it, we know it’s supposed to be a body of water. But there is no reflection on the water as there would be in reality. It’s as if Gauguin is revealing that this is not reality, but his own glorified vision of what the reality should be. During the turn of the century, society, culture, and politics were all changing at a rapid pace, and artists continued to pour their personal thoughts and feelings into their works of art. An example of this is Edvard Munch’s The Scream. ......

Triumph of the Nerds

...Valentino Cervantes NT1110 Saturday AM Triumph of the Nerds Part I Synopsis Triumph of the Nerds is a biographical account of the inception of the personal computer. Narrated by Bob Cringely, we learn the history of the major players and contributors to the new personal computer era. Bob spends time telling the story of how the personal computer was developed and what it consisted of in its original state when it was a piece of ply wood and some circuits that you had to assemble and how it had been put together by Steve Wozniak one of the original founders of Apple Inc. Bob also spends some time sharing with us the creation of Apple Inc., and its founders including Steve Jobs. He introduces us to Paul Allen an original founder of Microsoft along with Bill Gates. Bob takes us on a wonderful journey into the world of the personal computer and gives us an insightful view on what the wonderful world of computers has become since its inception in the late 70's and early 80's. He shares with us the beginnings of "code" and what its purpose was and how essential it has now become in our productivity and personal lives for our computers. Produced in the mid 90's this movie had not realized the possibilities or potentials for where the personal computer would be later in that era, as well as into the new millennia and beyond. As I sit here in 2014 with this wonderful opportunity placed before me to become involved and engulfed by this new technological era, I look forward...

Sharing in the Triumph

... emerge at its core. The principal idea of the Nash Equilibrium can be interpreted as “To avoid the worst instead of to get the best,” a thought that existed in eastern philosophy—staying in the middle. Such a coincidence is indeed more than a coincidence, demonstrating how philosophy and mathematics “get along with each other”. However, the Nash Equilibrium is not the only example, as shown by some other shared concepts such as infinity, fairness, set, and function. Moreover, game theory can explain much of ethics, a basic branch of philosophy. Ethics, a major topic of philosophy, can be analyzed as the result of game playing which existed since the age of the earliest human societies. Any male members in a matrilineal tribe were working under a pervasive rule that no matter how much prey they got by the end of the day, they had to submit the prey to the head of tribe who would assign the portions equally to every member of the tribe, including the hunters. In a sense, such a rule is now recognized as the ethical norm that every individual was supposed to obey. Moving our focus to the process of how the rule was formed, we capture the hidden traces of mathematics (our game theory, again). If a man decided not to conform to such a common rule, he would be able to keep all of his prey, which would be indeed much more beneficial to him than to obey the rule, especially on a day when he got a large amount of food. On the other hand, the rule sometimes helped him survive when he......

Factors Affecting Scholastic Performance of Selected Junior Students of Bbte

...Introduction Every individual has at least a friend, others have allot and others were also involved on certain groups which they are calling as “Peer Groups”. Keeping up with these “Peer Groups” needs to have a bit of an effort on the part of the individual himself – this effort is called “Peer Relations”. Keeping up with friends doesn’t mean that the individual should compromise other things such as his or her education. Knowing these matters, the writers want to make a study about the “The Impact of Peer Relationship to Scholastic Performance to BBTE Students” Peer Relations of the Bachelor in Business Teacher Education Major in Technology and Livelihood Education students will be tested – whether they are conscious on keeping up their friends or they are conscious on keeping up with their studies. These two statements will be tested to them and this study will reflect their answers.

Triumph of the Nerds Paper

...The Triumph of the nerds Paper The first true nerds were young men who obsessed over computer programming. They would stay up for days at a time to program, not talk to anyone, smell terrible, and fell in love with computers. They developed the first more or less working computers and some applications, better operating systems and such. Nerds created programs for fun, tried to take over the computer market, and continued to expand their knowledge. Impressing Their Friends-The first computer developed by these nerds was developed in a garage in Silicon Valley. Every one of them built a version of a computer in their garages. Ed Roberts developed the Altair (first personal computer) which worked by flipping a series of switches. Many programmers enjoyed this version, but thought it to be too annoying to work with. Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs later enhanced the Altair with developments and named it Apple2 . Which boomed the market . Grace Hopper developed COBOL which made it possible for them to advance much easier. More people created applications that made the display more attractive, and more fun. Riding the Bear-With all the computer companies existing in the world, new companies could not really take off. Many of the major companies competed for ownership of the world’s computer users. IBM was in trouble, and in order to save themselves, they thought up a new idea: use non IBM products. That worked quite well, but Bill Gates (Microsoft) was still the wealthiest man...
