La colección más grande de joyas. Así presentan la exhibición, por primera a vez abierta al público, de las alhajas recuperas del Titanic.

Anillos de diamantes y zafiros, broches, collares, mancuernillas y un reloj de bolsillo hecho de oro son algunas de las perlas que se podrán observar en la muestra. Las piezas fueron recuperadas de un solo bolso de mano hallado durante una misión de exploración y recuperación en 1987.

“El propósito de la exhibición es ilustrar al público sobre la maravilla de la exploración, dijo Alexandra Klingelhofer, vicepresidenta de colecciones para RMS Titanic Inc. Y agregó: “Podemos darles un vistazo de cómo debe haber sido al abrir esto por primera vez y ver, juntos, la bella joyería del periodo eduardiano”.

Los conservadores y curadores han estado estudiando y preservando estas piezas de joyería para tener un mayor conocimiento de la vida individual de los pasajeros.

Exclusive: Google Launches Style Guide for Android Developers

The guide, then, will be continually updated with a running list of features, suggestions, and development methods, including things as granular as software button placement to as large as dealing with screen sizes.

“Android has had a lot of terrific developer API level documentation,” Duarte tells me, speaking of the code that developers use to understand how Android works, and how to make applications for the platform. “But within our style guide we have things [where] we think, unequivocally, this is the way to make it Android.”

By last count, over 700,000 new Android devices are being activated every single day. That’s spread a

Matias Duarte, the head of user experience at Android, aims to change the way developers design for the platform.

LAS VEGAS — Matias Duarte is a man who loves a challenge.

It’s part of why he took his current job at Google, leading the Android operating system team as head of user experience. In a nutshell, he is the man tasked with making sure Android looks, feels, and performs as smoothly as possible. And it is not an easy job.

“Designing an open mobile operating system — and doing it really well — that’s never happened before in human history,” Duarte tells me, leaning forward in his chair and sipping from a cup of tea as we spoke in the garish hallway of a hotel on the Vegas strip earlier this week. He is visibly excited, seemingly up to the task when I note how big the challenge is. “I’ve done the closed thing before,” he says, referring to his days at Palm working on the webOS operating system. “And I’d like to think I did it well.” Leer más “Exclusive: Google Launches Style Guide for Android Developers”

5 correlations between a digital strategist and a game show contestant

In late 2010 I was a contestant on “Let’s Make a Deal.” It was one of the most popular television game shows of the 1960’s and 1970’s and now it’s making a comeback. I was on vacation in Las Vegas when I attended a taping that I will remember forever. It wasn’t until recent that I realized all the correlations between being a digital strategist and a game show contestant. Here are five ways being a digital strategist helped me win big:

5 correlations between a digital strategist and a game show contestant

In late 2010 I was a contestant on “Let’s Make a Deal.” It was one of the most popular television game shows of the 1960’s and 1970’s and now it’s making a comeback. I was on vacation in Las Vegas when I attended a taping that I will remember forever. It wasn’t until recent that I realized all the correlations between being a digital strategist and a game show contestant. Here are five ways being a digital strategist helped me win big:
1. Make a plan. I’ve always been fascinated by game shows, and why some people seem to be more successful than others. I watched tapings to try to analyze the different games. If only I was as smart as Michael Larson who won $110,237 on a game show in 1984. The digital world consists of planning and strategizing for brands as well. Brands need to listen to the conversations about themselves before participating. Both game show contestants and brands can not afford to skip the planning stage.
