Embeding YouTube Videos on the wiki

Greetings, Does anyone know how to quickly embed a YouTube video in the wiki used in SimTK. It can be done as an external link with an image, yet this is not clean and requires much workaround. Hopefully there is a simpler more elegant way. If not, can it be done in another SimTK mechanism where bot...

Critical Points

Ahmet and Lealem sent me a membership termination letter. I asked for this letter to become public. It is only appropriate in a committee that should have public impact. Note that nomination letters are public as well as our discussions, there should be no reason not to publish other documents, espe...

Re: Survey Design

Apparently there is already an implementations of a ranking question in an existing survey tool. Here is a link to a demo: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F4KU0ytv5yI# I hope the tool we use has this option. A ranking question is superior to the previous scoring approach from several perspectives: 1. I...

Re: Should “technology” be included in the Committee Charge?

This will not change results since there is an overwhelming majority not to add technology. For the record do count my vote as a yes for option 3 - this is how it all started. Yet I also supported option 2 which was a good compromise. I am proud to belong to this minority. Never the less, looking at...

What differentiates the committe from other standard bodies

Many people who hear about the committee ask about its nature and think of it as a standards committee. In the last meeting, we had a discussion on what distinguishes us from the many standard bodies that publish guidelines of best practices. Here are the main elements people mentioned with one word...

Re: Survey Design

The survey purpose is to rank rules. This is what we actually did when we internally decided on internal rule rankings. The current implementation as a survey form with scoring was imposed by the availability of the tool and the technology. Since we are delayed so much and since I just recently beca...

Re: Should “technology” be included in the Committee Charge?

Since most people contributed an opinion and since there was a call for further discussion, I decided to re-engage in the discussion with some relevant examples from one presentation in IMSH. Joy Ku and Nathan Wilson both presented simulations in a panel in IMSH. Nathan presented a cardiovascular mo...

Re: Should “technology” be included in the Committee Charge?

Lealem is right, we do have to make a decision in the next couple of weeks since we plan to get more exposure. Lealem is taking the conservative approach and again explains his position well. It all makes sense. He is right, there are constraints associated with innovation such as finance issues. Ye...
