New Theme: AltoFocus

The WordPress.com Blog

Today we’re happy to announce the latest addition to our collection of free themes: AltoFocus!

AltoFocus is a spinoff of the original AutoFocus theme from a few years ago. Its elegant tiled layout helps artists, photobloggers, and other creatives showcase their talents.

Designed by Allan Cole, it highlights featured images in a way that engages readers and then gets out of the way of what truly matters — your work. The grid automatically shifts and re-forms to accommodate each new post you publish, creating an ever-changing collage of your creativity that draws visitors in while remaining clean and easy to navigate. And of course, it does this no matter the screen size.

Read more about its features on the Theme Showcase, check out the demo site, or dive right into previewing it on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

The Art of Computer Programming (TAOCP)

I retired early because I realized that I would need about 20 years of full-time work to complete The Art of Computer Programming (TAOCP), which I have always viewed as the most important project of my life. – Source: Knuth: Retirement

At the end of 1999, these books were named among the best twelve physical-science monographs of the century by American Scientist, along with: Dirac on quantum mechanics, Einstein on relativity, Mandelbrot on fractals, Pauling on the chemical bond, Russell and Whitehead on foundations of mathematics, von Neumann and Morgenstern on game theory, Wiener on cybernetics, Woodward and Hoffmann on orbital symmetry, Feynman on quantum electrodynamics, Smith on the search for structure, and Einstein’s collected papers.

The 4 ABSOLUTE BEST Websites to Find Remote Work and Work Abroad

thisisyouth

The Internet is full of listicles and advice on “How to Make Money While You Travel,” “How to Earn Money Traveling While Working Remotely,”or “How to Get a Job Abroad.” You’ve probably clicked on a few of these articles yourself, in your idle time (or on your employer’s dime). And if you’re anything like me, these articles are usually disappointing—they lack solid details, or the sites they recommend don’t have any opportunities for anyone but super-skilled software developers. They’re the results of a $10/hour content writer who has been charged with slapping together an “SEO-friendly” article about “remote work,” “Location Independence,” “Working while traveling,” and similar search terms. In other words: they lack both authority and investment.

How to Find (REAL) Remote Work and Travel Jobs Abroad

I’ve spent the last 18 months of my life looking for remote work, working while traveling, and job-hopping. I have actively been searching for…

Episode 42: The Art Of The Pitch – Bringing To Life The Strategic Idea

Octopus Digital Strategy

An idea can move. An idea can inspire. An idea can make the difference. But that idea needs to be positioned, articulated and communicated in a way that will help an audience not only understand what makes the idea logically sound, it also needs to resonate emotionally. Understanding how to do that is at the core of the art of the pitch. And mastering this skill is what makes the difference between a good strategist, and a great one.

When we think about the pitch, we typically envision a stand up presentation with a series of slides. But we forget that we pitch everyday and with almost every interaction. Every human point of contact is a pitch of sorts. There is an element of persuasion, subtle or overt that is happening. It’s part of human nature. Anyone who says that they are not a salesperson misunderstands the nature of sales…

The Rise of Emerging Entrepreneurial Cities

The mission of the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN) is to help build one entrepreneurial ecosystem. People are mobile, ideas fly around the world, and capital moves rapidly across borders. Entrepreneurs no longer need to be constrained by
geographic boundaries: startups in Africa working on global problems will seek connections with startups in Europe and the United States. Venture capitalists have followed this pattern, expanding their global investment portfolio over the past two decades.
Yet we have lacked ways to fully capture the globalization of startups and the progress of the global entrepreneurial ecosystem. And, while we have evidence-based insights about the DNA of specific innovation hubs such as London, New York, and Silicon Valley, we have not understood what works in helping smaller ecosystems accelerate their growth and increase their performance. Until now.
