social media policy update required (audio)

2 quick thoughts heading into the weekend. 

  1. on the media policy needing to be changed for MLS and NFL. 
  2. on the new feature in OneNote that autocompletes a math equation





The social media policy is one piece of the rather long disclaimer that is part of the New England Revolution 'membership' package.

"I agree that I and/or each person who enters Gillette Stadium using tickets issued to me will not transmit or aid in transmitting any description, account, picture, reproduction, or other depiction (including text, data, or visual) in any media of all or any part of the event."
This was apparently written 10 years ago. Yes, long before the likes of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Periscope, etc. came into prominence. Now, we need the lawyers to get back to the drawing board to update the language in light of the current situation. Phrase it such that you still get some brand protection and yet I (and others) don't run afoul of the restrictions to take pictures and share accordingly.

and on the second point, about the autocompletion of an equation
Ink Math Assistant and Ink Replay- Using your stylus in OneNote you can now write out equations and then have them solved and then see the steps that were used to get to that answer. Microsoft calls itthinking with ink and I call it pure magic because I was always bad at math. It is currently only available in OneNote for Windows 10.
- Replay inking in Office apps is like a screen recorder for ink based annotations that lets you see the sequence of someone marking up a document. It is currently available in OneNote on Windows 10 but will soon expand to other programs in Office 365 including Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
