Didier Sornette: How we can predict the next financial crisis

The 2007-2008 financial crisis, you might think, was an unpredictable one-time crash. But Didier Sornette and his Financial Crisis Observatory have plotted a set of early warning signs for unstable, growing systems, tracking the moment when any bubble is about to pop. (And he's seeing it happen again, right now.)

DataTable using SignalR+AngularJS+EntityFramework

SignalR brought developers an easier way to build real-time, very responsive web applications. But, how does it play with other available technologies?
