Tangible enough

Thinking about the purpose of prototypes: Make new and upcoming technologies and standards tangible enough to help people think through the consequences of them. Technology is moving fast, but it is also unevenly distributed, and the consequences - good and bad - of emerging technologies may only become apparent as they move into the mainstream. By making these consequences tangible early we can choose between possible futures. Links

A quick analysis of wifi cards for using a Raspberry Pi as an access point

When Radiodan can't access the web, it throws up an access point (AP) created by the Pi: you connect directly to that and it displays the available wifi points in a webpage as a captive portal, and asks you to add the password for the one you want. It's not easy to get credentials for wifi to objects with no user interface, and this is the best one we've found so far (

Putting the Smarts in Data Integration

Driving business value from your data often requires integration across many sources. These integration projects can be time consuming, expensive and difficult to manage. Any short cuts can compromise on quality and reuse. In many industries, non-compliance with data governance rules can put you firm's reputation at risk and expose you to large fines. Traditional data integration methods require point to point mapping of source and target systems. This effort typically requires a team of both business SMEs and technology professionals. These mappings are time consuming to create and code and errors in the ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load) process ...

Another AGU and we all get wet from the rain in San Fran…

Unfortunately, it may be remembered for the "year of the RFID mess" over the great science progress. However, let's start with the positive. Rensselaer's Tetherless World was well represented - see what we did at http://tw.rpi.edu/web/event/AGU/FM/2014/Participation = Patrick, Stephan, Marshall, Evan and Paulo (representing others including Linyun and Han) in talks, posters covering both research and project progress, and the academic booth (go RPI!). This year, we presented in Informatics (IN) and Education (ED) sessions with talks and many posters. ...
