Five years ago, Elizabeth Althardt taught reading in the traditional way: Develop lesson plan, teach lesson plan, write test based on lesson plan. Some kids passed, some kids failed. She moved on to the next lesson plan. Now Althardt uses half a dozen different standardized tests—some given every other week—that produce a steady flow of computerized data for every student, every test question.

The Usufruct Delusion | The Effects of Global Warming
Society has built up its civilization and operates by using up the available natural resources. Most of them are capital that can only be used once. Civilization is a cancer. Technology and energy has provided the means for this ravaging. But money has been the intangible that has provided the leverage for the rapid growth of the human population, its associated infrastructure, its consumption of natural goods and services and its devastation of the environment. This draw down is really worthwhile only where it meets the reasonable needs of the community but not when it is used to satisfy wasteful wants. It is unsustainable so ... market research, surveys and trends

NBN agreement not just good for Telstra
will give NBN Co access to Telstra's communications network and duct structure. This is not just good for Telstra - it is good for the nation. Why? Well, there are two main reasons. First, the previous federal government handed Telstra shareholders an investment dud by selling the telco on the basis of blind ideology. The lack of forethought about the resulting industry structure not only hindered the deployment and take-up of new technologies, but it locked in old technologies and prevented innovation - both in infrastructure and the use of high bandwidth technologies. Second, after more than a decade of neglect, not only ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

During 2001-2002, I was a Scholar-in-Residence at the Sherman Kent Center for Intelligence Analysis, the “think tank” attached to the CIA’s training center for analysts.  The CIA has long used such scholars as expert analysts, but the Kent Cen­ter wanted to try something new:  using an outside scholar to study the process of analysis itself.  In particular, I was charged with look­ing at how the Directorate of Intelligence (DI) uses information technology (IT), and how it might use this technology more effectively. My approach was to watch as many DI analysts as practical and ask them how they performed their ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Information Revolution and Global Politics - Series - The MIT Press
