#ALA ?! RT @jowyang: Cisco cut out real world event & held a virtual one at 10% of cost for 19,000 people case study: http://bit.ly/ox4yh [shifted]

"My overall experience with the virtual venue was quite positive. I thought the team did an incredible job on creating an experience that was visually beautiful, easy to navigate, rich in content, engaging and interactive. The games, especially “The Threshold”, were over the top cool and forced you to learn and collaborate in a fun and exciting way.
Yes, I did miss my friends and colleagues but at 10% the cost of an in-person event, the increase in productivity by eliminating the time loss due to travel, and the positive impact on the environment, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of these kinds of events in the future. If you go back to one of our key goals of educating the team, I think this format yields better results than an in-person event. As a matter of fact, the event has opened my eyes and I believe that gaming and ARGs will play a significant role in the way we learn in the future. Why can’t learning be fun and interactive and …a game." – via jowyang

"Sound a lot like Facebook Pages? In terms of functionality, they are, though Facebook attempts to explain the difference:
“Keep in mind that while Groups and Pages now look the same, they still serve different purposes. Groups are for fostering member-to-member collaboration, while Pages remain the best way to broadcast messages to your fans if you are a business, organization, public figure or other entity.”"

"Theres a lot more to setting it up than just plugging it in and turning it on. The setup guide that comes with the server runs you through some of that, but theres definitely some "follow the on-screen instructions" detail-free action in that guide and its nice to know up-front what youre looking at. I found a really nice online description of the initial setup steps for the server that youll want to check out."

"The goal is to ensure that from any TV or computer in my house, that I can access music, photos, videos, movies and TV shows (live or recorded). For example, if my wife has friends coming over, I should be able to pause a DVD movie I am watching, move upstairs, and continue watching it without having to fumble with discs and other physical media.
Additionally, if I want to show photos of my family to visitors, I should be able to pull up the most recent photos quickly, by month and year and tag on any device in the house. For example, I should be able to have photo gadgets in Vista, on multiple machines, pulling from the same location for updated photos that are automatically categorized, tagged and stored right from my digital camera when I do an upload."

"Nicole Pinkard, founder of the Digital Youth Network and an associate professor at DePaul University, said the creators of the space worried at first that kids wouldn’t come. But the space is filled with teens from schools all over the city every afternoon….
Shani Edmond and fellow University of Chicago Charter student Shannon Jackson did research at YOUmedia for a film about revitalizing 71st Street through the use of public art. Their film was part of a student urban design project to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Burnham Plan.
Not everyone is involved with all the violence going on, Edmond said. We want to be part of that change. " – via @macfound

"If youre looking to branch out of your social network box, your best option may be Twitter. Nielsens survey didnt find a dominant social class on Twitter as much as they found a geographical one: Those who use Twitter are more likely to live in an urban area where theres greater access to wireless network coverage, Mancini said.
The simplicity of Twitter definitely creates less of a divide, because its not a relationship like it is on MySpace or Facebook," Ostrow said. "If you live in the middle of nowhere or you live in a city, you can follow anyone about anything. "

"the basic types of Augmented Reality: 1. Surface– The most understandable form of reality that is augmented would be screens, floors, walls etc that respond to the touch of people in them providing them w/virtual real time information. 2. Pattern– The AR system performs simple pattern recognition on a shape, marker (usually on a framed card in the real world scene) or face & replaces it w/a static or moving element. 3. Outline– This is where your hand, eye or body outline is picked up & seamlessly merged w/the virtual elements. Simple ex. where you can pick up a 3D object that doesnt exist because the system is tracking your hand outline. 4. Location– Based on detailed GPS or triangulation location & position/view of the camera/device the system can overlay information precisely over buildings or people as you move through real space. 5. Hologram– Using smoke & spinning mirrors literally in some cases, virtual or real items are projected in & interacted w/ the physical space"

"The anxious rhetoric around new technology is really quite shocking in its vehemence, from claims that the player piano will destroy musical taste and the "national throat" to concerns that the VCR is like the "Boston strangler" to claims that only Hollywoods premier content could make the DTV transition a success. Most of it turned out to be absurd hyperbole, but its interesting to see just how consistent the words and the fears remain across more than a century of innovation and a host of very different devices.
So here they are, in their own words—the copyright holders who demanded restrictions on player pianos, photocopiers, VCRs, home taping, DAT, MP3 players, Napster, the DVR, digital radio, and digital TV." – via @CopyrightLbn

"There are companies that specialize in making WiFi systems that will support large conferences: one that I found is called Meraki; I don’t know much about them but their website sure makes it seem like they understand the issues at least.
At the very least, though, a venue should be able to tell you how many access points they actually have (if it’s just one, you’ve got problems), whether they are managed access points or not, whether dedicated ports with higher priority can be provided for the speakers and for journalists that do not share bandwidth with the audience, how many IP addresses the DHCP server can provide, the total number of people that can be online at once, and the amount of bandwidth available to the entire site. If you can’t get good answers to these questions before the conference begins, you have to assume that they’ll be running a single, consumer router connected to a DSL line and that’s about all you get."
