How well do you know the E2 community? Are you sure? This week's quiz has been designed to test your deep knowledge of the community's activities over the last week.
It's been two weeks since our last successful entry in the quiz, but if you think that's going to convince me to make the quiz easier, you just don't know me very well. If I'm going to award a Double Woo-Hoo, it's going to be for an entry that truly earns it -- no mercy Woo-Hoos here.
Let's go over the process: Click the image below to begin. Work through the five questions of the quiz, and write your answers in an email message. Send your email response to me, and that's it. If your answers are all correct, you'll be recognized with a Public Double Woo-Hoo message in the comments here. What could be better than that?
Don't be shy, and don't worry if you've received a Public Woo-Hoo in the past. There are no limits on how many times you can have a winning entry in the Friday Quiz. Just put on your thinking cap and get started. Enterprise Efficiency fame is waiting.
@Zaius: Agree with you. Curtis knows how to make questions interesting! @Curtis, you write it in such a way that makes people really think, but in a fun way. I don't know how to explain it, but you ask in ways that make me bring up a lot of images in my head! Hmmm...motivational? Or fun motivational? Anyway, I just ran through the questions but haven't really answered yet. I would like to take sometime to think about my answers...Anyway, I really wish more of my professors in College had quizzes like yours, Curtis. They make thinking creative and fun!!!

Now that TGen has broken new ground in genomic research by using Dell's storage, cloud, and high-performance computing solutions, the company discusses what will come next for it and for personalized medicine.
The Translational Genomics Research Institute wanted to save lives, but its efforts were hobbled by immense computing challenges related to collecting, processing, sharing, and storing enormous amounts of data.
Office and personal productivity tools come in a first-class and coach flavor set, but what makes the difference is primarily little things that most users won't encounter. What's the big issue in using something other than Office, and can you get around it?
We really don't want an "Internet of Everything" but even building an Internet of Everythinguseful means setting some ground rules to insure there's value in the process and that costs and risks are minimized.
Google's Chrome OS has a lot of potential value and a lot of recent press, but it still needs something to make it more than a thin client. It needs cloud integration, it needs extended APIs via web services, and it needs to suck it up and support a hard drive.
On a recent African trip I saw examples of the value of the cloud in developing nations, for educational and community development programs. We could build on this, but not only in developing economies, because these same programs are often under-supported even in first-world countries.
VMware's debate with Cisco on SDN might finally create a fusion between an SDN view that's all about software and another that's all about network equipment. That would be good for every enterprise considering the cloud and SDN.
Wearing a bulky, oversized watch is good training for the next phase in wristwatches: the Internet-enabled, connected watch. Why the smartphone-tethered connected watch makes sense, plus Ivan demos an entirely new concept for the "smart watch."
Cloud storage costs are determined primarily by the rate at which files are changed and the possibility of concurrent access/update. If you can structure your storage use to optimize these factors you can cut costs, perhaps to zero.
The Internet has evolved into a machine for drumming up a chorus of "Happy Birthday" messages, from family, friends, friends of friends who you added on Facebook, random people that you circled on G+, and increasingly, automated bots. Enough already.
