11 Reasons Why Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 Isn't Being Released on 11/11/11
Explained By Larry Wake: http://blogs.oracle.com/solaris/entry/11_reasons_oracle_solaris_11

the Oracle Solaris 11 will be launch November 9th. Just two days later, the 11th, is "11/11/11" That would have been a great day to launch a product named 11

here's why they didn't go with that date:

1 Whoa -- we never thought of that!

2 We just couldn't wait.

3 Friday -- not a good day for a product launch.

4 Armistice Day/Remembrance Day/Veterans Day -- not a good day for a product launch.

5 Sony Pictures begged us not to release on the same day as the new Adam Sandler movie.

6 We figured the launch parties would keep going for three days.

7 Dyscalculia. Dysnumeria.

8 Hoping to ride the coattails of the commemorations of Louis the Bavarian's defeat of his cousin Frederick I of Austria at

the Battle of Gamelsdorf in 1313.

9 "11" is actually 9--in octal. OK, that one's exceptionally weak.

10 November 9 is Inventors' Day!

11 "No... that's just what they'll be expecting us to do."

Two of these are actually the real reasons.

Picasa, image host service owned by Google, gives us an example of human-based computation.

Quote ( Wikipedia )
Human-based computation is a computer science technique in which a computational process performs its function by outsourcing certain steps to humans. This approach uses differences in abilities and alternative costs between humans and computer agents to achieve symbiotic human-computer interaction.
In traditional computation, a human employs a computer to solve a problem; a human provides a formalized problem description to a computer, and receives a solution to interpret. Human-based computation frequently reverses the roles; the computer asks a person or a large group of people to solve a problem, then collects, interprets, and integrates their solutions.


Indeed, when an user upload a picture to Picasa, he's being offered the possibility to click on a part of the image identified by Picasa as a face and name that person (see screencap), so that the identification process is done by the user themselves and then Picas (Google) can use these datas for further features or other applications.

You will see the timeline between the two columns. The posts in the two columns are pointing at different time points on that line. The posts on the 2 columns are not the same.

Google+ and Facebook both reduce the size of the pictures uploaded; it's not a problem when the picture is used to illustrate an article on the forum but not the best when uploading it it in the Gallery.
